Dark Heirloom by J.D. Brown - Blog Tour - Guest Post

Title: Dark Heirloom
Author: J.D. Brown

Genre: Urban Fantasy


Book Blurb:

“You’re a vampire” is so not what Ema Marx wants to hear when she wakes from a two-day coma in a cryptic yet exquisite castle in northern Finland. Unfortunately, it explains a lot. Like why she’s able to see in the dark and walk through solid objects. What she doesn’t understand is why the other vampires expect her to have all the answers. It’s their fault she turned into one of them…right?
Jalmari’s hatred for his old-man intensifies when he’s ordered to bring that troublesome girl to their castle. He has a clan to run; there’s no time for babysitting newborn vampires no matter how they were converted to their culture.… Read more >>>

Fire Baptized
By Kenya Wright 

Since the 1970’s humans have forced supernaturals to live in caged cities.

Lanore Vesta is marked with a silver X, the brand of Mixbreeds, second-class citizens shunned by society. She stays to herself, revealing her ability to create fire only during emergencies. All she wants to do is graduate college and stop having to steal to survive.… Read more >>>

Hello everyone 😀

I have been thinking of getting a guest reviewer for the blog for a while now. I have decided to go ahead and do it, so if you would be interested in being a guest reviewer here on Fiction Fascination please get in touch:

carlylily@live.co.uk

Tell me a little bit about yourself, what you like to read… Some of your reviews or links to them. I would prefer someone who doesn’t already have their own blog. Someone who e-reads would be a huge plus.

Please feel free to share with everyone & ask all the questions you wish
