Description For Sian B. Claven’s Story SHH…

What did you say?

The once silent world of Heather Lawrence is turned upside down when her husband, Andrew, admits her to a state-of-the-art facility for surgery that enables Heather to hear and speak, an ability she lost in her teens.

Strangeness abounds as she hears voices that aren’t there and speaks words that are not her own, and she tries to navigate through her noisy new life.

Desperate for answers, Andrew searches for the surgeon that gave Heather her new lease on life but turns up with more questions than when he started. He soon finds himself in need of a priest as All Hallows’ Eve approaches, and all traces of his wife disappear in front of his eyes.

Fiona’s Guardians is Available NOW!!

By now you know I have been working with Dan Klefstad for several years as he worked to get his novel Fiona’s Guardians out for everyone to read, and today is finally the day!!  Fiona’s Guardians is out and ready to buy NOW!!!  And just in time for Halloween, because Fiona is a vampire…. 

My review is not quite ready yet, but it will be coming soon, I am hoping next week. But I had to help spread the word about this new vampire novel!

Book Description: 

When a vampire seduces you, death is minutes away. When she hires you, you’ll soon wish you were dead.

It’s a truth known to every guardian who worked for Fiona, including Daniel. Aside from managing the day to day chores and keeping her protected, he manages an investment portfolio to buy stolen blood from hospital workers. The 250-year-old Fiona needs 10 pints of human blood every night. As a result of this, Daniel and Fiona are always on the lookout for police, but fail to notice their gradual encirclement by Mors Strigae, an ancient order of monks dedicated to the extermination of vampires. Gone for a century, the monks start a new war when they destroy Fiona’s sire. This time, her vampire family is pushed to the edge of extinction — and the humans who serve them are hunted and executed.

After 35 years, what keeps him loyal? And will he ever be allowed to leave?

An act of police brutality hurls a small town into a turmoil of rage and fear, igniting a relentless witch hunt and ending in the trial of the decade.

 A multi-state manhunt is underway for a cop killer on the loose. And Dr. Tessa Thorpe, a veteran’s counselor, is caught up in the chase.

Donald Darfield, an African-American Iraqi war vet, war-time buddy of the beaten man, and one of Tessa’s patients, is holed up in a mountain cabin. Tessa, acting on instinct, sets off to find him, but the swarm of law enforcement officers gets there first, leading to Darfield’s dramatic capture.

Now, the only people separating him from the lethal needle of state justice are Tessa and ageing blind lawyer, Nathaniel Bodine. Can they untangle the web tightening around Darfield in time, when the press and the justice system are baying for revenge?”

The courtroom scenes are wonderfully written…the characters are well described and the author paints a picture of each in the mind of the reader…Strong plot, strong characters and a strong writing style that I really enjoyed. This one is a definite “thumbs-up.” Strongly recommend! I look forward to reading additional works by N. Lombardi, Jr.
-Kim M Aalaie, Author’s Den

One of my favorite suspense novels of the year. It will make you question the legal system.
-The Eclectic Review

The courtroom action is excellent, trimmed to the most gripping parts of the trial, with plenty of emotional impact…a fairly realistic portrayal of the way small-town US society works…a fast-moving story with plenty of dramatic moments, and a big twist in the final pages
