The last book in Melissa Marr’s Wicked Lovely series, Darkest Mercy, came out last year, but that doesn’t mean we can’t go back to that wonderful world. Tomorrow, Melissa will be releasing Faery Tales and Nightmares, a collection of stories from the Wicked Lovely universe.
Dangerous promises and beguiling threats swirl together in a dozen stories of enchantments, dark and light, by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Marr. Uncanny and unexpected creatures appear from behind bushes, rise from under the seas, or manifest from seasonal storms to pursue the objects of their attention—with amorous or sinister intent—relentlessly.
From the gentle tones of a story-teller’s cadences to the terror of a blood sacrifice, tales of favorite characters from Marr’s Wicked Lovely novels mix with accounts of new characters for readers to fall in love with . . . or to fear.
Lush, seductive, and chilling, Melissa Marr’s stories revel in the unseen magic that infuses the world as we know it.
Tomorrow also happens to be the release day for Kelly Keaton’s second Gods & Monster’s novel, A Beautiful Evil.
Myth and mayhem inhabit a richly reimagined New Orleans in this sequel to Darkness Becomes Her.”After the epic graveyard battle at the end of “Darkness Becomes Her,” Ari and her friends know what they’re up against: Ari is facing the Medusa curse and is haunted by the image of what she will become. To make matters worse, the heinous goddess Athena has kidnapped young Violet and is threatening to destroy Ari. Ari, along with the superhot Sebastian, is doing everything she can to learn more about Athena and to get Violet back. But the battle of good and evil is bigger than she realizes, and she’s about to be pulled into a world more horrific than she could ever imagine….
The two have come together to celebrate these releases with a fabulous contest. One lucky reader has the chance to win both of these novels – Faery Tales and Nightmares and A Beautiful Evil – signed by the authors themselves. Want to know how easy it is to enter? Keep reading….
