Disarming Blog Tour

I am so excited to participate in this blog tour. I love Alexia and her books are amazing. So let's get started and get to know Alexia and learn more about her books.

Alexia currently lives in Las Vegas, NevadaSin City! She loves to spend every free moment writing or playing with her four rambunctious kids. Writing has always been her dream and she has been writing ever since she can remember. She loves writing paranormal fantasy and poetry and devours books daily. Alexia also enjoys watching movies, dancing, singing loudly in the car and Italian food.

Book 1:
"Never tease anything that wants to eat you. My name is April Tate and my blood is the new gold. Vampires and hybrids have overrun my world, once vibrant with life, but now a graveyard of death shrouded in shadows. I fight to survive; I fight for my mother and brother. The journey is full of turns that I am quite unprepared for. And I'm just hoping to make it to the next Vegas sunrise..."

In a post-apocalyptic world, a viral epidemic has wiped out most of the earth’s population, leaving behind few humans but untold numbers of mutated vampires. April is a seventeen-year-old girl who lives in the remains of Las Vegas one year after the outbreak. She has become a ferocious vampire killer and after her family is abducted, she goes searching for them. What she finds is a new breed of vampire, unlike any she has seen before. Unsure of whom she can trust, she discovers that her view of the world is not as black and white as she once thought, and she's willing to bend the rules to rescue her family. But in trying to save them, she may only succeed in bringing her fragile world crashing down around her.

My Review:
Wow what a ride. In a genre filled with zombie apocalypse having a book about a vampire apocalypse is so refreshing. I got sucked in from the first line. “Never tease anything that wants to eat you.” If that doesn’t draw you in I don’t know what will.

April, her mom, and her six year old brother are all that is left of the human race living everyday not knowing if it’s their last in the fight with the wildlings. While out one day to get more supplies her mom and brother go missing. April goes crazy trying to find them and in her quest to take out as many wildling vampires she meets a new breed of vampire a hybrid. April doesn’t know if she can trust Miranda but if she wants her family back than she has to go against everything she believes and trust a hive of hybrid vampires. In doing so she learns so much more about wildlings, hybrids, and herself. For April and her family are not entirely human themselves. April also meets Rye who at first she doesn’t want to trust but she can’t fight the feelings she has for him and she’s not sure she wants to.

I loved every second of this action packed ride Alexia took me on. I found myself admiring April for all her strengths and even her faults. I found myself forgetting at times that she is only seventeen and has seen more death and destruction than most people will ever see. I don’t know how I would react if I was in April’s place having to fight everyday to survive. April is so well written that I could feel all her pain and confusion through out the whole book. The side characters are written just as well. We get to know them just as well. One in particular named Rye. He is so strong and wants nothing more than to protect April and be by her side forever. I found myself falling for him right along with April. I am hoping there will be another book. I want more April and Rye.

If you are looking for a new apocalyptic book then this book is for you. Alexia is defiantly an author to watch out for. She is on my must buy list and she should be on yours. 5/5 Bloody Fangs

Book 2:
The world has changed. One must adapt to survive or hold on to the crumbling shards of humanity.

April continues to hold her fragile world together, but the ties that hold her family together are quickly unraveling. Rumors of a massive human underground settlement draw her to the shadows of the city once more in search of other survivors more like her, even with the hybrid vampires opposing her every move. 

The darkness hides secrets along with the continued threat the Feral Vampires create, but a greater evil hides within the city. Something tells April that the humans will be less than welcoming of her, and that's if she can find them before the Vampires do. Joining sides with the enemy might be the only choice she has left.

Excerpt 1:
In the distance, the snarls and moans of the feral vampires filled the air as they descended from their daylight tombs. It sent a different kind of shiver down my spine as I concentrated on breathing deeply, attempting to slow my frantic heartbeat down. It was unnerving, sleeping in the middle of the city, surrounded by fangs and death. I hated this and doubted I would get much sleep tonight, if any. I’d just have to do without.
“Going to be a long night, try to sleep some.” Rye’s voice was soft, but it did nothing to soothe my nerves. The chair creaked with his weight as he came to sit near me.
Excerpt 2:
The woman, or girl—he wasn’t quite sure for he hadn’t asked her what her age was, though it seemed pretty certain that she was in her late teens, maybe early twenties—made her way in easily. She slipped quietly into the rear of one of the main greenhouses. It was lit up in there like twilight all night long with the full spectrum of light slowly growing as daybreak came. It was sufficient to see a lot of the floor, though the foliage and abundance of greenery would be sufficient to hide her for a while. Elijah knew she had figured this out and was now weaving her way through jagged rows of saplings, fruit and eucalyptus trees. Her black clothing hid her enough that no one noticed the svelte woman dodging people, sticking to the shadows and snapping quick, concise pictures of everything she saw.
She’s studying us.
Elijah shook his head, amused by this revelation. Of all things, this human was studying other humans! Ha! But what for? What did she want to do with those pictures? Why didn’t she just waltz right up to the door and introduce herself? She was definitely human and might have been welcomed.
Or maybe not. He frowned. Katrina was volatile and could decide she was a threat to the city instead. And what if she was a hybrid human? Could she be?

My Review:
Once again Alexia has sucked me into her world and had me forgetting everything around me until the very last page and then left me heart broken and begging her for book three.

Disarming picks up right where Reign of Blood left off. With April still confused about her feelings for Rye, still fighting feral vampires, and wondering if she and her family are the only humans left. That is until April hears about a massive underground world where humans have survived. April sets off to find them but in doing so she not only pushes Rye farther away but she has put herself in danger for these humans might just be the one enemy that can destroy her and everything she loves.

I loved this book from the first page to the last. We get to see so much more of April and the way she thinks and feels but at times I wanted to just smack her for the way she treats Rye. But I also understand why she pushes him away. In her mind there is no happy ever after just pain and destruction. But one action changes everything for her and she finally admits to herself that she loves Rye. I was so excited when she realized this but at the same time my heart broke because of what she went through to figure it out. As for Rye I have no words that will fit him. He is just perfect and his love for April just pulls at my heart and makes me fall for him.

If your looking for a heart pounding, emotion pulling, heart breaking book that will leave you begging for more then read Disarming. I promise you won’t be disappointed. 5/5 Bloody Fangs
