"An incredible storyteller." --Los Angeles Daily News

There Is No Escaping

Despite a floundering marriage, Megan O'Casey and her husband Finn still make good music together. Which is why they head to Salem, Massachusetts, Megan's hometown--booked to perform a weeklong series of concerts culminating on Halloween. But as soon as they arrive, Finn seems different--sensual beyond belief one moment; cold and ruthless the next. The locals--even Megan's relatives--regard him strangely, with a distrust bordering on hatred.

The Nightmare Within

Something powerful is arising, a malevolence that may have already claimed Finn for its own. As the full moon approaches, Megan senses that she, too, is in mortal danger. But there are forces watching from beyond the pale of life and death. Whose side they're on is the least of Megan's worries. What they could reveal about her is what she's running from. . .

For my #8 challenge (Spooky Story), I read The Awakening by Shannon Drake. In an attempt to save their failing marriage, New Orleans musicians Megan Merrill and Finn Douglas have come to Megan's hometown - Salem, Massachusetts to play a weeklong series of concerts, culminating on All Hallow's Eve. From the moment they arrive in Salem, however, Finn begins to change; loving and attentive one moment, cold and ruthless the next. The locals - even Megan's own relatives - regard him with distrust bordering on hatred.As the time of the full moon draws nearer, Megan has terrifyingly real nightmares which make her begin to doubt her sanity and she is followed at night by an enveloping fog. She must soon face the fact that something has claimed Finn for its own and that her very soul is in mortal danger. I give this paranormal romance an A+!read more

The 5th in a series of romantic vampire books. This is much better then the last two. Shannon Drake is getting back to her good writing as in the first two. Back to being chilling.read more

This would probably have been more pleasing if I had read more in this series, however I haven't so I'm not sure if this is a typical read in this series or just a book that features some of the characters from the series.It does have Vampires and Werewolves in the story but that's actually not very important to the plot. They felt like they could have been replaced by ordinary people and not really changed the story much. So I was left with a vague wondering why they were necessary in this story of human courage and spirit overcoming paranormal evil. Some of the plot twists did take me by surprise but this was basically a story about some Satanists wanting to manifest a demon and what two people have to do to fight it.It was readable but sometimes I felt that things were a little forced and didn't flow well.read more
