Would you dare fall in love if you knew you’d be dead by midnight…?

Gisela Marton doesn’t know what to make of the mysterious gift left on her doorstep, with its strange card that reads, Happy Death Day, Gisela!

She is going to die. At midnight. What Gisela and the other humans in town don’t know is they share it with a hidden society of witches, one that has protected the community for two hundred years.

***Katie- #NerdGirlKtLbLy’s Review***
This story is very fast paced. It did help me to write down characters names and little descriptions to help understand who everyone was, because there are a lot of characters and a lot of things going on at once. This is not a lighthearted book. It is whimsical, yet very dark, and at times creepy and scary. James is the main character and he starts the prologue by saying his life completely changed a year ago. He goes on to explain the events that transpired, which really puts you… Continue reading

At the end of her senior year, her boyfriend, Jace Peters, was killed in a car accident, and her grandmother died only weeks later of a heart attack. Emotionally lost, Cassidy desperately searches for an heirloom her boyfriend was wearing in the crash—her mother’s gold ring. But during her search, Cassidy discovers more than her ring.

She finds a gate to the Demon Realm….

A battle is brewing, and Killian—head of the Demon hunters—preps his Clan for the approaching conflict. They’ve been working to secure the gate between his realm and the mortal world.

Now Rya is possessed with the necromancer’s powers and she may break through the gate at any moment.

Apparently Rya isn’t the only one Killian has to worry about…

When Cassidy accidentally crosses into the Demon Realm, Killian… Continue reading
