Fireborn-Book 1, Souls of Fire series

and it’s been getting some lovely reviews  :)

Bridget Keown from RT Book Reviews gave it a 4.5 start Top Pick and said: Arthur’s boundless imagination reaches new heights in the opening to her new paranormal Souls of Fire series. One of the main attractions is the remarkably strong, world-weary yet indomitable heroine and her fascinating personal history, but Arthur’s supporting cast is as varied, unique and engaging as any she has produced to date. The somewhat atypical romantic intrigue highlights the heartache along with the triumphs that come with being unique and powerful. Fans and new readers alike should take note of this series and experience what might be some of Arthur’s best work to date.

Carmel from Rabid Reads said:FIREBORN is book one in a red hot new series that’s destined to become  an Urban Fantasy favourite; if you’re tired of the same ol’, then look no further than Keri Arthur’s SOULS OF FIRE.

Amber R from Awesome Sauce Book Club said: With the plot, the characters, the steaminess, and the rhythm of the writing this series is bound to be a hit. The ending cleaned up the loose ends pretty tidily but leaves some threads hanging that leave us immediately wanting to know more. And don’t worry Keri’s talent for steaming up the pages is definitely in there as well. A book that is sure to catch the interests of anyone who loves suspense, romance, perseverance, and heartbreak with a paranormal twist Fireborn does not disappoint.

 

Jen from Tyngas’s Reviews said: If you’re looking to start a new urban fantasy series with a compelling plot, fully realised characters, steamy romance, and standout worldbuilding, look no further than FIREBORN. Keri Arthur has kicked off what’s sure to be yet another amazing series and you won’t be sorry you’ve given it a shot!

there’s plenty of more reviews out there if you’d like to check them out yourself. Or you could simply buy the book and take the chance that you’ll love it ;)

I’m going to be at Supanova in Melbourne this weekend (April 11–13th) signing books, so if you’re you’re going to be there, drop by and say hello! And if you don’t know what Supanova is (beside great fun), you can check out their website for all the details :)

In other news, the last of the Damask Circle books–Circle of Desire–was released this month. I also handed in the last of the Dark Angels books (Darkness Falls), which will be out in December

okay, so I continue to be slack about blogging, but I do have a really good reason–edits. Tons of them. Seriously. In the last three months I’ve edited four books, all while trying to get the contracted book written, as well as a separate project that just won’t leave me the hell alone. I’ve been pulling long hours writing/editing–up to ten or more hours a day–over the last month or so, and really haven’t had much time to do anything else. I even dropped the gym off–and anyone who knows how addicted to that I am will understand how big a step that was!

The good news is that the major part of the editing is over. Okay, I still have the copy edits and the galleys on all 4 books coming at me, and a book that’s due by the end of Feb that’s only half done, but after that, I should be clear–and able to update this site more often!

So, just to keep you up to date on the books I have coming out this year, here’s the current list:

Jan 28 ~ Circle of Fire (mass market re-release)
Feb 25 ~ Circle of Death (mass market re-release)
April 1 ~ Circle of Desire (mass market re-release)
July 1 ~ Fireborn (new series!)
Sept 14 ~ Memory Zero (mass market re-release)
Oct 14 ~ Generation 18 (mass market re-release)
Nov 4 ~ Penumbra (mass market re-release)
Dec 2 ~ Darkness Falls (the last Dark Angels novel!)

there should be–if I get the chance to write it– the second Harri Phillecky book squeezed in there somewhere.

Until the next update, take care!

Darkness Splintered by Keri Arthur

But only because I have a couple of books out. As I’ve said before, if you really want to know what’s going on in my writing world, then check out either my Facebook or Twitter page. I’m also on Google+, but I’m woeful at posting there, as well. The brain just can’t handle too many distractions–not if I actually want to get some writing done. Lol

Anyway, the releases….

There’s two. First up, we have Darkness Splintered, the 2nd last novel in the Dark Angels series. And, as i said on the website’s front page, it’s been getting some smashing reviews. Here’s a couple more:

Happily Ever After Reads said:Darkness Splintered raises the stakes in Risa life by putting her friends front and center and now not only her life is dependent upon her finding the keys but her friends lives as well. Risa, Azriel and the rest of the supporting characters (especially the brief moments we get with Riley, Quinn and Rhoan) continue to drive a series that’s captivating and hard to put down. 

Ann from Under the Covers Book Blog said: I don’t want to go too deep into the plot to save you from spoilers but if you’ve read this series thus far, trust me. You don’t want to stop here. Arthur really knows what she is doing and DARKNESS SPLINTERED just might be the best in the series!

Kiss the Night Goodbye (US) by Keri Arthur (The Nikki and Michael series)

The second book just out is actually a re-release– Kiss the Night Goodbye, the 4th book in the Nikki & Micheal series. If you didn’t catch it the first time around (as a trade paperback through ImaJinn) then here’s your chance to grab it in mass market paperback. It’s also been grabbing some good reviews:

Anne from Under the Covers Book Blog said: I said this once before, but I adore Arthur’s writing in this series. It’s so eloquent, so detailed, so spot-on in its pacing that it just makes the reading experience so much more enjoyable. It reminds me a little of Nalini Singh’s writing where the characters are lovable, but have a mysterious aura about them. The action scenes spare no emotions as they go from interesting to intense in just a few words.

Stephanie from Feeling Fictional said: I really enjoyed the other books in this series and Kiss the Night Goodbye didn’t disappoint. If anything this last book in the series was even more action packed and there was still plenty of romance despite Michael’s memory loss. I love the growth we have seen in both of the characters throughout the series and although Keri Arthur has tied up the ends of the series well I would love it if she would bring out more adventures with Nikki and Michael in the future. I almost didn’t want to finish the book as I wasn’t ready for their story to end. I’d definitely recommend the series & I know it is one I’ll be reading again in the future.
