Kit Colbana—half breed, assassin, thief, jack of all trades—has a new job: track down the missing ward of one of the local alpha shapeshifters. It should be a piece of cake.

So why is she so nervous? It probably has something to do with the insanity that happens when you deal with shifters—especially sexy ones who come bearing promises of easy jobs and easier money.

Or maybe it’s all the other missing kids that Kit discovers while working the case, or the way her gut keeps screaming she’s gotten in over her head. Or maybe it’s because if she fails—she’s dead.

If she can stay just one step ahead, she should be okay. Maybe she’ll even live long to collect her fee…

Book: El Libro de Jade
Release: 2010
Series: Saga Vanir 1


Caleb es un hombre atormentado. Un vanirio, un ser inmortal creado por los dioses escandinavos para proteger a los humanos de aquellos que no han sabido resistirse a la sangre y al poder. Ahora ha llegado a Barcelona para dar con la extraña organización que está secuestrando y asesinando a todos aquellos que son como él. Busca venganza y no dudará en llevarse a Eileen Ernepo, la hija del científico loco que está experimentando con los cuerpos de sus amigos. Ella será la respuesta a toda aquella red de sangre e injustificada violencia hacia los suyos. Eileen tendrá que pagar. Sin embargo nunca imaginó que la joven se convertiría en su perdición.
Eileen vivía su vida dentro de una apacible normalidad. Trabajaba en la empresa familiar como Relaciones Públicas, tenía un buen sueldo y quería con locura a su huskie y a los dos únicos amigos que mantenía desde la infancia. Además se acababa de licenciar en Pedagogía y le habían ofrecido un excelente trabajo en Londres en un proyecto de educación. Aquella era la oportunidad perfecta para huir de las garras de su padre, Mikhail, un hombre que no la quería y que la culpaba de la muerte de su madre Elena. Huiría de él por fin. Lo que no podía imaginar era que aquella misma noche un hombre iracundo y terriblemente atractivo la secuestraría y la introduciría a la fuerza en un mundo lleno de mitología, magia, clanes, sangre y colmillos.

So, that’s what’s on my wishlist this week – what’s on yours?

Once upon a time there was a little girl who loved to read story books. She devoured them because they were full of magical possibilities with every turn of the page. Then the little girl grew up and school work occupied more and more of her time. Eventually the little girl graduated from school, trading in poets & prose for business management & autobiographies. Magic was left behind in her quest for the top and the world became a place filled with “paradigm shifts”, ROI & financial reports. Before she knew it, the girl was a woman who felt out of touch with the world’s magic until she met Birth and her sister Death. While Birth filled her with wonder & happiness; Death filled her with sadness & loss. And so one day she set aside the management books and instead picked up a paperback story filled with vampires, shifters & telepaths. Lo and behold, her passion for these stories blossomed and the woman became a believer in the magic of reading, again. My name is Believer9200 and I believe in the magic of stories because they give me hope.
