I am so excited to be participating in the blog tour. I am huge fan of Katie Salidas and her Immortalis series. On my stop there is an excerpt, my review, and giveaway.
Katie Salidas is a Super Woman! Endowed with special powers and abilities, beyond those of mortal women, She can get the munchkins off to gymnastics, cheerleading, Girl Scouts, and swim lessons. She can put hot food on the table for dinner while assisting with homework, baths, and bedtime… And, she still finds the time to keep the hubby happy (nudge nudge wink wink). She can do all of this and still have time to write.
And if you can believe all of those lies, there is some beautiful swamp land in Florida for sale…
Katie Salidas resides in Las Vegas, Nevada. Mother, wife, and author, she does try to do it all, often causing sleep deprivation and many nights passed out at the computer. Writing books is her passion, and she hopes that her passion will bring you hours of entertainment.
A gathering storm of violence is on the horizon. Whispered threats of the Acta Sanctorum’s return have the supernatural world abuzz. Only recently aware of the other world hidden behind our own, Kitara Vanders has barely scratched the surface of what being supernatural truly means. A special woman in her own right, she possesses unique telepathic abilities, gifts that have recently come under the scrutiny of the Acta Sanctorum, a fanatical organization whose mission is to cleanse the world of anything supernatural. Targeted, and marked for death, Kitara’s only hope lies with the lethally seductive yet emotionally scarred warrior, Nicholas.
Knowing full well the atrocities the Acta Sanctorum is capable of, Nicholas is all too eager for the battle to begin. Fueled by pain and rage from the loss of his mate, he’s itching for a fight, but one thing stands in his way, Kitara: a beautiful dark-haired woman with unique psychic abilities and an unusual link to the Saints. Despite his resolve to remain focused on his mission, a purely physical relationship binds them together in a way neither of them expected. And when her life hangs in the balance, Nicholas finds his own is teetering on the edge too.
“You really don't care about human life, do you?" Though her heart pounded erratically with fear, there was none in her angry voice.
“Nope.” Nicholas was not about to get into a morality war with this woman. He pulled out the dead man’s wallet and tossed it aside. “Nothing good here.”
“You’re an asshole, you know that?”
He’d been called that by so many people, but somehow hearing her say it struck a chord with him. “I’ve been called worse.” He tried to sound as if he didn’t care, but for some strange reason, he did. He opened his mouth to say something, but found the words escaped him. Humans never understood. Perhaps it was better off she thought him a jerk.
“I can’t believe you. Human life has to hold some meaning.”
“It does. If humans weren’t around, I’d have to eat animals.”
“You’re nothing but a monster, just like Jeremy said.”
That hurt. He had saved her life, and she hated him for it. He turned on her, anger setting his heart pounding. How dare she talk this way to him after he’d saved her? “He would have killed you without a second thought. That’s what the Saints do. They are the real monsters, not me.”
Perhaps it was his suddenly sharp tone, or maybe she realized he was telling the truth; whatever it was, Kitara paused. He heard her take a deep breath. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have snapped at you like that. You did save me. I’ve... I’ve just never witnessed a murder.” Her body was still trembling, and her heart thumped so erratically that he wondered if she might pass out. The tang of her fear wafted up to his nose. “You tore that guy’s throat out, in front of me. You killed him. You drank his blood.”
Nicholas attempted to temper the anger in his voice with patience in the hopes of getting her to relax. "Vampires drink blood, sweetheart.”
I love the Immortalis series by Katie. I devour every book as soon as it releases. And Dark Salvation is no exception.
Nicholas is a 2000 year old vampire who is heart broken over the loss of his mate Rozaline. His pain is causing problems in his clan daily but one night out with his leader brings Nicholas face to face with Kitara. Their meeting causes both of their worlds to change in ways neither expected.
I have loved Nicholas for so long and when I heard there was going to be a novella about him I was so excited. But when I heard he would be getting a new mate I wasn’t so sure it would work. But I was so wrong. Kitara is the perfect mate for him. I loved how the relationship grew over time instead of love at first sight.
The characters in this series get in your heart, mind, and soul and just set up camp there never planning on leaving. There are some steamy scenes that will leave you breathless and needing water afterwards. This is a great addition to an already amazing series. I already need the next book. 5/5 Bloody Fangs
