My Review

Well damn!! this one definitely made up for the wopper of a cliff hanger! AND there's a whole new character that I'm all rooting for. New houses, dead bad guys, cool new friends, and some crazy not so friendly friends. LOL 

Let's start with Tori waking up back in the hell hole she ran from for so long. Leroy has finally caught up to her running, and he's torturing more people to keep her there. But no worries, this is the most bad ass I think I've seen of Tori. She got a little bloody but I cheered so damn hard! And one of those big bad guys, he's dead. I have never been so happy to read about a decapitation in my life! And Leroy, baby I'm coming for you if Tori doesn't! :) Her team, well, she's loosing some, but she's gaining some others and I'm impressed. And I think I've fallen in love with that little guy, who maybe isn't so little :) 

This is what I think of as a family! Some are blood, some aren't. It's the same, there's that bond that holds everyone together and Tori is the glue. And I seriously can't wait to see where this new team is going to go. Also, these new powers we've added to the arsenal. And I must say, this one is rough for Tori. And maybe a few others. I must say, Maniac has grown on me so much now. This story solidifies why he's a great addition to Tori's team. I do believe I may still be Team Trey overall but I am growing to love some of these guys so much. 

The plot has added to more of the story and I love the writing. There's always something fun going on or a great twist that will blow you mind. I have a feeling we're going to see some crazy things to come, and I really am anxiously exciting to see where we're going to go from here. It's getting creepy cool and I want more!! 5 PAWS!! :) 

Character Interview with Victoria Novak

I just want to thank Ms. Weaver for doing this & I hope my questions will help make it easy to spread the word of this wonderful series!

WELCOME Tori!! First, tell me a little bit about yourself and your life…
What’s your favorite part about being “different”?
Everyone’s different. You just gotta embrace your inner awesomeness and go with the flow. I mean, my difference kept me locked in an underground cave system for eighteen years. But it also brought me a werewolf for a best friend and a witch for a second in command.

In the beginning of your story, you’re on the run.  I know the “running” sucks, but do you think, at that time, it’s the right thing to do for you safety?
I lived in the dark for eighteen years. I just wanted a normal life. You know, TV, college, walks in the park. So yeah, running was the right thing to do. I got me out. It got me free of Leroy. But I’m glad I’m not running anymore. 

You still got caught, but in the end you got your team LOL. Tell me how being part of a team has changed from hiding out?
I thought running would let me experience real life. You know, those perfect movie moments with friends and sunshine and rainbows? Not so much. I didn’t get my perfect moment until I found my team. They’re the center of my world and I couldn’t be happier. Hiding who I was only stifled the parts of me that make me strong. The team brought that out of me. They let me be me and still love me for it.

Do you ever wish you could be normal, even for a little while?
Normal is overrated. Trust me, I tried it.

What about your coolest power, can you tell me something about which of your powers you like the most?
Honestly, my powers are a little freaky at times. Like the blood bonding thing. I now have wereanimals tied to me for the rest of my life. I have a vampire that depends on me for his very existence. That’s huge. Way huge. But its also gave me a direct link into their minds. I’m stronger for it, and so are they. Plus telepathy? Way cool.

Do you think you’ll ever have a relationship-more than friendship- with anyone from your team? I’m secretly rooting for one in particular LOL.
I’m learning there’s more to certain members of my team than I thought. Looking back, I realized I’m a little slow on the uptake. But don’t worry, I figure it out eventually. Or, well, he kind of doesn’t let me ignore his feelings anymore. I think that happens after the debacle with the Council, so you may not have heard that part of the story yet.

If these books were made into a movie, who would want to play you?
I’m the only me. And author Loren Weaver says she tries not to picture an actress in my place. Every reader has their own image of me in their heads. I’m just that awesome. Don’t worry, I’ll try not to let it go to my head. But someday, when my story is a movie, who would you want to be me?

Well damn, way to answer a question with a question :) How do you feel about being a hero? You know you are right? :D
I never think of it that way. I’m the Voice of the Dead. I seek and find for them the justice they deserve. If I take in and shelter a few paranormal misfits on the way, well, I can’t stand to see people hurting and not help. It’s just not who I am.

Hmmm, is there anything you’d like to tell me, maybe a little secret, or any cool hints about the upcoming future? ;)
I know you’re pretty miffed about the cliffhanger at the end of Shadow’s Lament. Sorry about that, a little. But Tiger’s Peace reveals a character that I grow to love more than my own life, so I’m pretty excited about you getting to meet them too. Book five is called Dynamite’s Cure. Now that’s not awesome or anything, right?

A little of this and that…
          Coffee or tea?  Tea. Sweet. Iced. On the couch with Trey :)
Mountains or beach? The beach. Who wants to be cold all the time? Although, my wereanimal pose might disagree with me when it comes to wide open spaces to run.
Winter or summer? Summer. Outside fun. Water. Heat. Life. The usual.
Vampire or werewolf? You’re really asking me that? Seriously? Is both an acceptable answer? Keep in mind that my BFF is a werewolf and I’m bonded to a vampire. Both of which are hundreds of years older and a lot stronger than me.  *both works LOL** 
Cold or hot?  In weather? Hot. In the paranormal? Again, both. I’m learning balance.
Favorite color? Red and black.
Night or day?  I’ll always have a soft spot for daylight. I spent the first eighteen years of my life in the dark. But I’m Paranormal. I’m a creature of the dark.
Moonlight or sunlight? Moonlight. Just not a full moon when I have to deal with lycanthrope politics.
Steak, seafood, burger, or pizza? Trey makes the world’s most awesome homemade pizza that’s to die for. I mean, beyond amazing.

Thank you so much for meeting with me, and letting me ask all these crazy questions! I hope you have a wonderful time and I can’t wait for your next story!
