Fate and Fury Blog Tour

Fate and Fury
(The Grey Wolves Series Book 6)
 Quinn Loftis

The last few days have been the darkest of Sally’s life.  After experiencing the joy of finding her mate, she now suffers the pain of losing everything she holds dear. Both the Romanian and Serbian packs have been captured, ripping Sally’s soul mate away from her almost as soon as she had found him. Her best friend and the emotional glue that usually holds Sally together, Jacque Pierce, lies writhing in a restless coma, having been put down by Desdemona’s dark magic. Jennifer Adams, the unshakable one, has revealed to her friends and her mate that she is pregnant, but the Fates have marked her unborn baby for death.  Though she rails against the darkness, deep inside Jen knows that Decebel’s baby must die as payment for her own life, and the knowledge is tearing her soul to pieces. Cypher, King of the Warlocks, has claimed Jacque’s mother as his mate and agreed to help Desdemona open a door that would release a horde of demons from beyond the Veil.    
Though her world is crashing down around her, Sally holds out hope.  The Great Luna is not sitting idly by.  She has commanded the Fey council to call upon the packs—all of them.  And though Cypher looks for a way to open the Veil for Desdemona, he struggles to protect Lilly and the wolves at the same time.  Peri, the ever-courageous High Fae, and a contingent of the remaining females of the Romanian and Serbian packs, push on through the rough Carpathian Mountains. Though they are bound to the human realm, they continue to search for a way to cross over to the land of the Fey. Meanwhile, in reluctant obedience to the Great Luna, the Fey council sends representatives to the far corners of the globe, meeting with the pack Alphas.  The Fey must convince the Alphas of every pack to lay aside their petty territorial squabbles and battles of dominance. If they refuse, both the humans and the supernatural races will fall at Mona’s feet.
Sally holds to a shred of hope. Though Vasile, Decebel, and their pack mates endure the torture of the In-Between, living their worst nightmares over and over, Sally holds. Though she knows that it is only a matter of time before their wolves take over, she holds. Sally knows that if the males die, then so too will their mates who have performed the Blood Rites, including her best friends Jen and Jacque.  Yet she holds. If the males lose themselves to their wolves and turn feral, so too do their mates.  Still she holds. Though Vasile, the strongest Alpha in their history to unite the wolves, is lost beyond the Veil, Sally holds.  Though Decebel, the only other wolf besides Vaile strong enough to unite the packs, suffers beyond the Veil, Sally will hold.  No one is left to unite their race, and defeat Desdemona. Yet Sally still holds.  She holds out hope that the Great Luna will not abandon them, cannot abandon them.  Throughout the centuries, the Great Luna has always provided a gypsy healer to the packs, especially in times of great need. Now Sally is that healer. Sally fears what role she has to play in the defeat of Desdemona, but she will play it.  Though heaven and hell unite against her, she WILL play it.
For too long the supernatural races have lived in separation, warring amongst themselves, allowing trivial power plays and selfish disputes to keep them from uniting. That separation has made them weak. Now, being summoned as a collective force to the same land, will they come?  Will they come in numbers greater than have been seen in centuries? Will they destroy each other and save Mona the trouble, or will they finally unite and fight as one? 

My Review  

Holy Hellfire and Hot Werewolves!!  This is a great addition to one of my very favorite series!  Although, I have to warn you, some of it is just torturous!  The sexy furballs, who seem so strong and in-charge, have been sent to live out their worst fears over & over in the in-between, thanks to the terrifyingly powerful witch, Desdemona.  Meanwhile, their snarky mates are left suffering while they search for a way to help them.  They’ve lost a lot of their spark with Jacque stuck in a coma. And to make matters even worse all the wolf packs and all the supernatural beings are going to have to learn to work together (without ripping each other’s heads off) to have any hopes of saving themselves and the rest of the world.  Seriously, I can’t believe I made it through this book in one piece.  I have definitely suffered with them.  But that just makes me love them more and more.  They are all so strong to keep on fighting when things seem completely hopeless.  The bond between the mates continues to be an epically amazing love that never stops growing.  I am absolutely in love with these books! 


Costin closed his eyes and reached for Sally; his Sally, not the imitation that sat before, him broken and afraid. He didn’t know how long he and his pack mates had been in their own personal hell, but it was getting harder and harder to have moments of clarity like the brief glimpse he was getting now. The only thing that had allowed him to gain this much was the first moment in which he had felt her. It had been like a drink of water in a dry, parched land and it had brought him a minuscule amount of relief and then it was gone. With every moment that he felt the unrelenting torture of watching his mate die, be tortured, raped, ripped apart and taken from him he prayed for one second of his mates’ presence. He knew that he was fighting not only for his life, but for hers as well. It was a fight he refused to lose.
He pushed out with everything in him, reaching through the bond, though thin it was, to draw her to him. He held his breath as he waited for her to answer him. One beat, two beats, his heart pumped in his chest and then, she was there. His brown eyed gypsy and all the gentleness that she possessed.
“Sally mine,” he whispered through cracked lips.

Imitation Blog Tour!!

Heather Hildenbrand

Everyone is exactly like me. 
There is no one like me. 
The rough fabric of my cotton nightgown chafes so I lie very still. They say my discomfort comes from being built like one accustomed to niceties. How is that fair when I myself have never experienced anything but copies of the real thing? 
My entire life is an imitation. 
I am an Imitation. 
I’ve been here five years. Training. Preparing. Waiting.
And now I have a letter.
My assignment has begun. 
I am a prisoner.
I am not Raven Rogen.
I am here to die.

I just started IMITATION and I am already loving it!  It's very unique and intriguing from the very beginning.  I know you're gonna want to get your copy immediately so here are some links:

Now I will turn this over to the fabulous Heather Hildenbrand!

My writing of Imitation coincided with a very important event for me… my first ever motorcycle ride!
From the moment I felt the rush of speed on the back of that bike, I knew that’s what Linc would drive. Since then, I’ve ridden an enduro (on/off road), dirtbike, cruiser, and sport/street bike. In December, I bought my first motorcycle—a Honda CBR 600—and in February, I completed the rider safety course and got my motorcycle license.

Since then, I’ve sold my CBR (although I could ride it, I feel more confident with something smaller for now) and gotten a Suzuki 200 enduro. (And I love the idea of riding in the dirt!) When I took that first motorcycle ride, I had NO idea I would love it as much as I do. It’s so much fun and I never get tired of the feeling of being on a motorcycle. For those moments, I am free. Of problems and stress and anything real life. There is only me and the machine and the wind.
Every single thought and reaction Ven has in Imitation is directly out of my own journal and/or thoughts as a result of riding. And Linc’s image wouldn’t be accurate without a kickass bike. I suspect he rides something similar to this:

What do you think?
