About A. R. Kahler

The first two books in The Immortal Circus trilogy – Alex Kahler’s debut novels for adults – have been international bestsellers in serial form. Martyr, the first book in his post-apocalyptic YA fantasy series called The Hunter, will be published by Spencer Hill Press in the Fall of 2014. Like Viv and the troupe, Kahler is a wanderer. As an aerialist, he has toured with circuses across America and Europe. Travel enables him to experience the wild and wonderful world, from drumming with Norse shamans to dangling from unexpected rafters. He received his master’s in creative writing from Glasgow University. Kahler writes, climbs and spins dreams in Seattle.

Synopsis for The Immortal Circus

Murdered contortionists aren’t exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can’t quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded – because forever means something quite different at the Cirque de Immortals.

Aided by her friends Kingston – a feisty stage magician whose magic is quickly stealing her heart – and his sarcastic assistant Melody, Vivienne finds herself racing against the clock to discover the culprit behind a series of deaths that should be impossible. However, the answer she seeks might reveal more about her own bloody past – and future – than she bargains for.

The show’s just beginning.

My Review for The Immortal Circus

I loved The Immortal Circus. I loved the characters (especially Kingston), I loved the scene that was set. I loved the plot, and how everyone was tied into the circus in some way. Of all creatures, faes are my favorite. I have never read a book about Fae that was set like this. It was very interesting. Normally I don’t put a book like this in my Halloween series as it really was not scary, but because of the characters and the plot, I thought it was fitting. If you like the Fae or anything with magic, I recommend this to you!

Review: Desa Kincaid’s Bounty Hunter by R.S. Penney



Synopsis for Bounty Hunter

Desa Kincaid has spent the last ten years in pursuit of a man whose experiments have killed over a dozen people.

Blessed with the power to transform ordinary objects into devastating weapons, she journeys through trading ports, backwater towns, forests, deserts and the haunted remains of a dead city.

But can she stop her enemy before he unleashes something terrible on the world?

My Review

I love anything with bad@$$ women.  Desa, for sure, is on my list of female characters that I love to follow.  I mean, R.S was able to bring in readers who were never interested in this type of genre, and they are craving more! It has magic, it has fight scenes, it has the support for the LGBTQ, it has suspense . . . Do I need to go on?
