ReBlog – Haven Is Available To Pre-order! – Lindsay J. Pryor


Haven Is Available To Pre-order!

I know a few of my eagle-eyed readers have spotted this already, but I’m delighted to be able to officially announce that HAVEN is now available for pre-order!

The first book in my brand new spin-off series with Piatkus Books, HAVEN is due for release on 2nd November this year – but you can order your paperbacks and eBooks now!

Every few days, the handsome stranger comes into the café in Lowtown for an hour at a time. Mostly he keeps himself to himself – one drink and he leaves. Sometimes people meet with him but about what remains elusive, the edge of mystery and danger adding to his allure.

Not that Ember is allowed to think about him. She’s finally on the cusp of gaining her citizenship and escaping Lowtown for good, so she can’t be seen to be involved with a vampire – evidence of one single bite would be the end of her prospects. But when those prospects are rocked by her links to the district’s dark underbelly, the stranger she must avoid could be her absolution – and she could be his . . .

A spin-off from the bestselling Blackthorn series by Lindsay J. Pryor, set in Lowtown, the neighbouring district to Blackthorn. The product of a brutal class system, the dark, enticing world of Lowtown will grip you and never let you go.


What reviewers are saying:

I absolutely adore the world she’s put into place here. Everything is so well formed with its own history and culture that it really feels like I’m living in Blackthorn… (Marked by Books)

This is a paranormal universe like none you have encountered before. (Keeper Bookshelf)

I don’t think I have read such a finely executed dark PNR world before… The world-building is spectacular. (Gaga Over Books)

Lindsay Pryor has crafted a world that’s intricate, gritty and genuinely fascinating… (Big Little Sister Blog)

This concept is creative and different from other paranormal books I’ve read lately. (My Paranormal Book Review)

I cannot say how much I love this author. She is creating a world which sucks you in, which makes you want to know more about Blackthorn and its inhabitants. (I Heart Books)

Not only are Pryor’s characters and fathomlessly dark love stories fabulous, but her continual world building of Blackthorn blows me away. (Gravetells)

Lindsay is a wonderful writer. She’s crafted one heck of a world… (Vice President of Creative Affairs for Relativity Media Film Studios, California)…

Lindsay J Pryor – Blood Torn

Lindsay J Pryor – Blood Torn is book three in the Blackthorn series.

Blood TornLindsay does it again!  Blood Torn is another great suspense filled paranormal romance.  She had me contemplating at the very beginning who the romantic entanglement was going to be between.  After that was sorted the dark tawdry fun begins!

Sophia or Sophie as her sisters call her has followed in the family tradition of getting herself captured.  She has a self destructive attitude that may not be curable by anyone.  Even if she escapes her captors she will always be a prisoner to her own guilt.

Jask the lycan leader has the same affliction.  But he is on the road to recovery.  His pack is in peril but he knows the key to their salvation.  He has to convince his captive to save his pack.

Of the two I had no favorite at the beginning, favoring Corbin, Jask’s second in command instead. By the end I couldn’t decide who I liked more between Sophia and Jask.  Sophia having grown wise while accepting her fate and Jask allowing himself to feel again.  Both have more in common then they first realize.

By the end of the story I was left in disbelief.  I got my happy ending only to have it tainted with the blood of the innocent.  Major players are revealed and motives discovered.  A horrible act is committed that I hope is rectified without further innocent blood being shed.

Lindsay J. Pryor – Blood Roses

Blood RosesBlood Roses is Book Two in the Blackthorn Series

WOW! I was blown away before I was even finished. The Hero, the Victim and the Antagonist swap roles like a thing of beauty. Just when I have the story lined out Lindsay would throw me a plot twist leaving me happily dumbfounded. When I was done flopping around in disbelief and spouting ‘I can’t believe that just happened’ I again would try to determine what end lies in store for our main characters just to be amazed all over.

Leila, poor thing, is much the human equivalent of a vampire trying not to feed.  She is also the only one left to watch over her baby sister so of course she would willingly walk into a den of vipers to rescue her. The problem is it’s all a setup. Caleb, mister sexy himself, is an addict trying to stay clean. Leila is the drug that can bring the monster back out in him.  He needs her though to save his baby brother from certain death. Unfortunately she is a serryn, a walking vampire aphrodisiac that can stop a vampire’s cold heart. The hunter and the hunted play a dangerous game each trying to set the other off just to end their standoff. When an outsider threatens to end their game earlier Caleb must think fast, because he’s not ready to stop dancing with death yet.

Oddly I don’t have a favorite main character. By the end Leila is still naive to a fault and Caleb still believes he is a bastard underserving of affection. Her sister Alisha is too clueless and reckless for my liking. Jake, Caleb’s brother is my cup of tea. He is loyal and logical both things I like. Caleb and Leila are loyal but are their loyalties misplaced. Jake doesn’t care as much about the bigger picture. He is concerned more with now.

Lindsay did a great job writing this book just like the last. I had it in my hands reading every available minute I had. This one has a bit more of a cliffhanger ending but not entirely. There’s a resolution to the current problem but bigger problems lie in wait for our pair. If you’re looking for a new series to start I highly recommend this one.

Lindsay J Pryor – Blood Shadows

Blood shadows

Blood Shadows is Book One in the Blackthorn Series

Blood ShadowsGet ready to follow, Caitlin Parish, as she relentlessly pursues the master vampire, Kane Malloy. Attempting to read his shadow and convict him of all his crimes against his own kind and humans. Caitlin also hopes to obtain information from Kane. She hopes the information will aid her in resolving the unsolved murders of her parents. But Kane rarely does anything that doesn’t benefit him.

Kane, with his bad boy image, is enhanced by his almost John Wayne style of vampiric justice. His ego knows no bounds and his confidence and boldness are refreshing. From the very beginning, I was captivated by him and his je ne sais quoi.

Caitlin’s almost unachievable goals made me empathic to her and her plight to discover what truly happened to her parents. Her urgency for Kane to divulge the information before being detained causing her to let her guard down.The author, Lindsay J. Pryor, did a superior job creating the world the book takes place in. The book was well thought out, with carefully painted characters, who were easy to imagine. The book moves well, getting the reader where they need to go … even if they don’t want to. This book will defiantly leave you with your jaw gapping quite a few times.

The best part for me was the ending, the resolution of one set of problems and the hint of new to come. It left me wanting more! More Kane, more Caitlin and more of this new world Lindsay J. Pryor created. I would definitely recommend this book! It has a lot to offer those you enjoy romance, fantasy, futuristic or supernatural. From a sultry romance, to an unknown unexplored world that feels like it could be just a few days into our future, to all the things that go bump in the night that scare us just enough to excite us.
