Miranda Stork's Vigilante of Shadows Releases TODAY!

Hello my fellow vixens! I'm thrilled to be a part of a very special celebration today. It's release day for my friend and fellow author Miranda Stork. Vigilante of Shadows is the first book in her Scarlet Rain novel series and it promises to be one thrilling read! The action begins fast and hard with a murder, an immortal murderer, and a bright young police officer caught in the action. Oh, and shadowpeople and a demon. Did I not mention those? Vigilante of Shadows sets the series off on a path that will be humorous  horrifying, and just a little bit steamy. A path where this time…the whole of humanity hangs in the balance.

Sounds exciting doesn't it? 

Today you're in for a treat. My alter ego, Lia Michaels has also agreed to host Miranda on her blog today, Here at Sassy Vixen we'll put together our usual "Thursday Thirteen" sort of post to get your engines revved up a bit. Then you have to travel to The House of Taboo where a very special guest will read Miranda's excerpt. It took some work and calling in a few favors, but Lia was able to get this special guest to stop in today in between his own media blitz promoting his latest movie. Intrigued? Read on sassy ones!

Aodhan clutched uselessly at his head, groaning. He knew it was useless, because the voice was not inside his head. It followed him, skimming across buildings and land. It had followed him since he was sixteen, and it still followed him today, like a memory too horrific to be forgotten…

Aodhan is a shadow-demon, hardened and cold after years of being alone, after his love, his Entwined, was cruelly taken away from him. He has closed his heart to the world, and now spends his life ridding the world of men like those who took his beloved away, an immortal hit-man…

Arianwen Harris is a young DCI, working for York City Police. When a known criminal is found viciously killed, she finds herself trailing a hit-man who has seemed to escape clutches again and again…but she begins to find herself drawn to his dark charms and roguish good looks…

As their two worlds collide, Aodhan and Arianwen find themselves coming together to escape a far greater enemy, one that threatens to create a world far worse than the one they live in. As they battle to hold back the oncoming forces, fate has another plan; one to draw them together and heal their broken pasts together…

Thursday Thirteen Teaser

He paced along speedily, hands shoved deep in the pockets of his jeans. The sounds of the night surrounded him--distant cat song, the steady hum of far-off cars, the soft sound of wind whistling underneath people’s windows. He loved being out at night, not because it was a time when his ‘kind’ were more active, but simply because it was so much quieter than the day. The sounds of people rushing around disappeared, and left a peaceful calm with the soothing darkness.

Of course, there were the voices in his head, but that was another story.

He shrugged his shoulders up, cutting off the wind whistling around his neck. He wasn't particularly cold, but the noise was annoying when your ears were so sensitive that a pin dropping could sound like a two-ton weight.

Aodhan’s mind went back to the girl from the bar. He hadn't meant to be so brisk with her, but it was really best that no-one got that close. He… didn't do well with people any more. They always brought back memories of simpler times, of her. And besides that…he killed people. People who wouldn't die if they hadn't found out about them…

Aodhan was a demon.

Didn't I tell you this book was going to grab you right off? Well, keep your panties on. We still have a bit more to go through here before you head on over to The House of Taboo. You see, Miranda has a giveaway going on today too. Here's the Rafflecopter for you to get your entries. Good Luck!

About the Author

I was born in Guisborough, North Yorkshire in 1987 and have lived in various places around Britain, including Newcastle and Glasgow.
My writing is inspired by various writers, including the vivid characters of Charles Dickens, the imagination of Stephen King, and the Gothic imagery of Anne Rice.

My love of horror began at an early age, when I was only three or four. I could read proficiently at the age of three, and devoured fairy-stories, but I always had a bent towards the darker stories, such as the Brother's Grimm's tales...Red Riding Hood was always a firm favorite  although I always felt sorry for the wolf, despite him having tried to eat everyone!
