In My Mailbox: Goodies for My Nook
In My Mailbox is Hosted by: The Story Siren!
This week’s In My Mailbox (or On My Nook) is going to be short, sweet and to the point. I am trying my best not to purchase any books from my local bookstore (and any bookworm knows its a struggle). My TBR pile is slowly creeping out of control, what was once one shelf of ARC’s turned into 2, while my NOOK is crammed pack with eGalley goodness. But hey I am not complaining, I feel very fortunate that I can read and review every single book that is passed my way. Between Books and Video Games I am not sure which I love more. If you looked at both of my collections you could say I have an unhealthy (but wicked cool) addiction to both! Haha! Before I forget, Author K.C. Neal will be the featured author on my blog for the whole month of November (You can check my Calendar for updates)! Make sure you stop by each week and see all the goodies we have planned featuring her début novel Pyxis. So without waiting any longer take a look at what’s new In My Mailbox…errr….On My Nook.

Serena Embracing Darkness
By: Laurie Bowler
Overview from Goodreads:
Serena finds herself thrown into the dark world of the dead, her own maker had killed himself shortly after biting her. Leaving her unconscious and unaware of the monster she’d become, her only clue to his identity was the relic he’d left behind, the one Serena lovingly placed around her neck before returning home to her mortal family where she tried in vain to live without being noticed for the blood thirsty monster she’d become.
The relic that will inevitably open the gates of hell and unleash war across the human race; must be kept safe and away from the greedy hands of other immortals.
Serena is the keeper and unknowingly holds the relic, while her mother harbours the secrets that will end the current conflict.
It’s only then Serena finds the truth about immortality and how to reside harmoniously alongside humans, the price of immortality is immensely high, she must release her hold over her mortal life.
Survival, wits and the bonds of love are the concepts that will see Serena through the path of righteousness and allow her to live through the immortal path of time with a wealthy knowledge and expectancy of things to come.
Together they must stand and fight while maintaining their own level of pride in their feeding combined with the teachings of Tim into the revelations of the new world which is dark and dangerous beyond Serena’s control.

Fifteen years ago, Teresa “Trance” West was a skilled telepath and a proud member of the Ranger Corps. But ever since the Rangers were inexplicably rendered powerless at the climax of the devastating Meta War, she’s bounced from one dead-end job to another. Now her powers have reappeared just as mysteriously as they vanished— only they’re completely transformed and more potent than ever. And they’re threatening to destroy her.
Trance heads to Los Angeles to track down the surviving Rangers and discover who restored her powers—and why—but a phantom enemy is determined to kill them before they can reassemble. As they dodge his deadly attacks and come to terms with their new role as heroes, Trance and the rest of the team set out to annihilate the sinister madman . . . only to discover their own powers are his greatest weapons.
