NBTM Virtual Book Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Worlds of Fire: Blood Red Moon by Deborah A. Bailey @AuthorDeborahB @GoddessFish


 

Worlds of Fire: Blood Red Moon

by Deborah A. Bailey

GENRE: Romantic Fantasy


BLURB:


Out of the ashes, a new beginning...

When his family and most of their kind were destroyed by the Guild, Derek inherited the position of Vampire Lord. Alchemists held the keys to creating portals to other worlds, knowledge they passed down to phoenixes. Their utopian society was crushed when the Guild invaded, intending to unlock the powerful secrets phoenixes possess. Lovers Derek and Avani met the night their city was sacked and after the city succumbed, they were lost to each other.

Love will be resurrected in blood and fire…

Having lost her memory, Avani became a protégé of the Guild Master, conditioned by magic to believe shifters and vampires were evil. Eventually, she was made Seeker, tasked with finding the Vampire Lord in order to gain access to phoenixes.

When Derek finds Avani, he neutralizes the magic that's kept her from remembering who she is. However, the Templars have almost certainly made a pact with the enemy of all supernatural creatures, in order to gain access to the portals. Only a phoenix can save the world from utter ruin now, but that was precisely the asking price…


Excerpt:

As he studied me his eyes were more hazel than brown. And they showed me his raw desire. This was Derek desperate to reclaim me.

"You're not hungry for blood right now, are you?" I asked.

He shook his head, then averted his eyes as though he was afraid of revealing too much. But I'd already seen and felt it. When he met my eyes again, his were darker. Mesmerizing, pulling me in so that I was unable to look away.

An intense vampire gaze burning into me, arousing me to the point where I gripped the edges of the towel I'd wrapped around me. If I said yes, we could be together now in the way that he hungered for.

The image of him running towards me flashed in my mind. The sunshine, the sound of the water lapping on the shore, the smell of the grasses and sweet flowers…all of it came back to me in that instant. His arms around me. His touch. His scent that reminded me of the fresh, comforting earth.

Another image cut into my mind. The Guild house…our plans to purge the vampires, finish them off…destroy the evil. It had to be done and that was our purpose.

Before I could stop it, a sob pushed its way up into my throat. I covered my mouth before I voiced it. He can't know what you've done. He'll never understand.

Derek gripped my shoulders. "What is it? Is the heart magic still—"

"I'm not the person I was back then. We're not the same people.

"I know that. But you and I are connected, Avani. We have a purpose."

"I've been told that before."

"That was a lie. This is real," he said. 


My Review:

Blood Red Moon sucked me in from the first page and never let go until the last page made its appearance. Blood Red Moon is filled with mystery and magic that kept me hooked from beginning to end.

I love this world that was created for Blood Red Moon. The descriptions were so well written I felt as if I was a part of it. It wasn’t like I was watching a movie it was more like I had entered another realm or world.

The characters all seemed so real as their stories were revealed. Derek and Avani worked so well together. They made a darling couple. I liked how patient Derek was with Avani and how he tried so very hard to help her.

After Avani and Derek were separated, Avani lost her memories and Derek inherited the position of Lord Vampire. Avani was given new memories making her believe that vampires and shifters were evil. Avani was given the role of Seeker or hunter. Avani’s new job entailed her hunting down vampires and shifters.

Would I recommend Blood Red Moon? Oh, yeah, you bet! Grab your copy of Blood Red Moon to see why I was so enthralled with this magical story!
