Life changes the most when it changes in an instant.

Nicolas Deschanel, playboy heir to New Orleans, has turned over a new leaf—and turned an eye to Lauren Weatherly, who is very unlike any of the women he enjoyed in the past. Their work to deploy field research teams to build the Deschanel family’s list of allies brings them closer, but each step in that direction also reveals truths about them both.
Charlotte and Julian carefully tail the Henry siblings in Paris, but Charlotte cannot deny she’s drawn to mysterious Lawrence, while Julian’s visions of the dangers ahead grow deeper and darker.

My review: As expected, the first installment in Cradit’s Midnight Dynasty series did not disappoint. In this book, we revisit some our favorite Deschanels (Nicolas, Colleen) and delve deeper into their family tree with the Fontenots, headlined by fierce Charlotte. Also we are introduced to the mysterious LaViolettes, a female-centered family with mysterious ties to our favorite magical family. Though it is a continuation of The House of Crimson and Clover series, it’s not necessary to have prior knowledge of those books to understand this one. If you enjoy a story with twists and turns and shocking endings, this is the book for you. Cradit’s delivery of mystery and intrigue is flawless. Five stars.

Scarlett Dawn’s The Complex

The Complex Book Series. 
A Lone Planet. One Complex. Unlimited Chaos. http://thecomplex.info

Aldous Ravenwood and his mother, Lake, pride themselves on their abilities. Great healers and practitioners of magick when aligned with the Oceans and Stars, Mages consider themselves the most intellectually gifted Meta race, and the leaders of the Mage Imperial Family are among the strongest. Yet Aldous’ son, Rath, has an ailment no Mage can treat. Other races of Metas on their home planet, Famiil, have also failed to cure him, and time is running out. 

Their last hope is the Complex, an experimental society with strict rules but access to the medicine Rath needs. The only problem? The Crown Prince’s disease is communicable and he wouldn’t be allowed inside. Lake devises a plan to instead smuggle the little boy into the Complex. She enlists the help of a Human, Gideon, much to the dismay of her son given the long-standing feud between Mages and Humans. 

True Mathieu came to the Complex with hopes to heal from her past. War took her husband and it hurt too badly to stay on the planet where they’d shared their lives. As a physician and research scientist, True believes the cure for her grief is found in service to others. After a chance meeting with Aldous, True volunteers to find a cure for Rath. The problem multiplies when other residents of the Complex become sick. 

True must race against time and the mysteriousness of the illness before death spreads through the Complex. As she and Aldous grow closer, she also finds herself nearer to the truth of how Rath fell ill to begin with. In this thrilling tale, old alliances are tested and new ones are on trial as hearts are softened and secrets are exposed.

Within the Garden of Twilight 


Temporary peace descends on the Deschanels in New Orleans. Loved ones have returned. A calm appears in the chaos. Life is, seemingly, back to normal. 
Those who had been away look to establish their new routine. They trade intrigue for dinner parties. Survival skills for day jobs. Settling into a quiet life comes with a sense of long-awaited relief, and they want, desperately, to embrace it with open arms. To sit in silence in their gardens at twilight and dream a dream they dare not: One of health, happiness, and above, all family. 

Yet under the surface lurks the shadows of their past, and the promises of tomorrow. A whisper in their ear, reminding them, “Soon.” 

The Prophecy awaits. The Myths of Midwinter await. The Deschanel Curse is hungry. And far away, in Farjhem, an ancient showdown is underway. The end is near. Who will survive?
The Calm envelops the Deschanels, but The Storm grins in the twilight:

My review: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

This book may be a mosterous 142k, but as a reader, you’ll breeze through it as if it were a 5000 word story. Within the Garden of Twilight is the 9th book in the House of Crimson and Clover series and like its predecessors, you should grab you a bag of chocolate and wine (LOTS of wine) and settle in for a few days of intrigue, mystery, drama, and magic. Cradit takes us on a journey across the globe, but very clearly makes it known that the heart of this story resides in New Orleans. 

The reality that Within the Garden of Twilight is the second to last book in the series is bittersweet. This series has been one of my favorites for years and I’m sad to see its conclusion. On the other hand, I’m excited for #10 and beyond as the House of Crimson and Clover is a part of the overarching Saga of Crimson and Clover. So #10 isn’t a ‘goodbye’ as much as it is a ‘see you later.’

*I was given an ecopy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Author: Sarah M. Cradit

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Release: May 2015

Goodreads: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/25471057-the-storm-and-the-darkness

Blurb:

Ana Deschanel made a terrible mistake. The only chance of protecting the other people involved is to flee New Orleans, the only home she has ever known, for the quiet solitude of Summer Island.

Summer Island, Maine (population 202) is not the tranquil escape Ana imagined. The locals are distant and cold, especially her neighbor, the reclusive veterinarian Jonathan St. Andrews. Her only lifeline is the kind but odd caretaker, Alex Whitman. Showing up at all the right moments, he warns her she is completely unprepared for a Maine winter. As the first seasonal storm approaches to whispers of an island shutdown, Ana realizes she may soon be cut off from the rest of the world.

After a surprising encounter with Jonathan’s brother, Finn, Ana finds herself braving the storm to return something to him. Unprepared for the Maine storm, she slips and falls onto the jagged rocks along the shore. The St. Andrews brothers find her in the nick of time, but she remains unconscious. As the storm worsens, the St. Andrews brothers learn there are other, more sinister forces at work closer than they ever imagined.

With no help from the outside world, they must find a way to protect themselves from both the storm, and the growing darkness that looms across the island.

Author Bio 
Sarah is the USA Today Bestselling Author of the Paranormal Southern Gothic series, The House of Crimson & Clover, born of her combined passion for New Orleans, family sagas, and the mysterious complexity of human nature. Her work has been described as rich, emotive, and highly dimensional.

An unabashed geek, Sarah enjoys studying subjects like the Plantagenet and Ptolemaic dynasties, and settling debates on provocative Tolkien topics such as why the Great Eagles are not Gandalf’s personal taxi service. Passionate about travel, Sarah has visited over twenty countries collecting sparks of inspiration (though New Orleans is where her heart rests). She’s a self-professed expert at crafting original songs to sing to her very patient pets, and a seasoned professional at finding ways to humiliate herself (bonus points if it happens in public). When at home in Oregon, her husband and best friend, James, is very kind about indulging her love of fast German cars and expensive lattes.
