Thank you, Tallis Steelyard for this touching tribute to a woman we lost, Sue Vincent. To many of us, she was a friend, a supporter, an advisor – but she was, first of all, an amazing human being. These words say it better than I ever could!
There are times when a poet must make a stand and say, “This has happened without my cognisance and I will not accept it!” Today has not been the best of days. Today I got a note from a patron. Common enough, especially from her, as she was always quick to praise, swift to encourage. But today the note had a bitter flavour. She was sitting awaiting death. A week? Longer?
And what can a poet do? A poet can protest, a poet can stand tall and say firmly that this will not do. A poet can bang the table with his wine glass obvious of the fact it has shattered and the pieces lie glistening but incoherent, shards of dreams never now to be dreamt.
Others have known Sue for longer than I, others will doubtless feel the grief more keenly, will mourn longer, but my job as a…
When Centriel roams the Earth in a dark mood and atypical despair, in a mountain
clearing, far from humankind, he unexpectedly discovers a runner, followed by a petite
hunter. The way the woman treats the giant fugitive amuses the Archangel, but he quickly
learns that neither of them are what they seem to be.
Simin Arnatt is an extraordinary woman. Her occupation as a Bounty Hunter takes
her all over the world, as she follows her prey to the most unusual places. She would
have never expected to meet the famous Centriel while on a hunt. When he offers to help
her, she feels the enormous attraction, but she knows, with the secret she holds, she
could never dare to hope for love.
Neither of them could guess that with her next assignment, Hell is breaking
This year, for the very first time, with the organizational talent and invaluable skills of Amanda Johnson-Lindsey, Bounty Hunter, 4th book in ‘The Council of Twelve’ series, is going to celebrate a virtual book release party!
I’m very excited about the event, which is going to take place
April 3, 2021 8 am – 8 pm PDT
There are still spots available for participants. Please, sign up on the sheet here if you’d like to participate in the ‘action’.
Demon Tracker is the third book in ‘The Council of Twelve series. Just like the two first books, the third one is written thrillingly and entertainingly. With Zepheira AJ Alexander has created an exceptional character I almost instantly fell in love with. She is self-confident, interesting, quick-witted, and holds a healthy amount of sarcasm as also humor. Next to Zye, how she’s called by her friends, we re-meet well-known characters, like Uriel, Lucifer, Katie, Sundance, and many more. Once I started I couldn’t put the book down. It’s always an adventure to delve into the world of ‘The Council of Twelve’ and lose oneself in the well-knitted plot. Book four in the series will be released in a few days. I’m convinced the new story will introduce us to a new, strong character which already tickles my curiosity.
I adored this book! When you feel sad when the book is over that is a sign it’s a good book. Bounty Hunter is giddily delicious! So much fun to read! Alexander instantly welcomes you back into her luscious world with characters that are phenomenally created big or small. Alexander locks your eyes in at first sentence and you fall easily into her world and get lost. You do not want to put the book down. It was pure happiness on my Kindle.
Bounty Hunter is 4th book in ‘The Council of Twelve Series’ If you have not read the other three, I advise you do such. Especially if you happen to by chance start your introduction into the Council of Twelve Series with this book. It’s the perfect YA fantasy/ paranormal romance book that adults will gobble up as well. In Bounty Hunter, we meet Centriel the youngest Arch Angel in the Council of Twelve. A bit forlorn as the others have found their consorts or at least have a “someone” he decides to take a flight to clear his thoughts. He finds a clearing to land and rests on a rock only to stumble upon a scene as we meet Simin Arnatt a petite, but fierce bounty hunter with a secret. She bursts through with her prey and Centriel is stunned. Centriel steps in when her bounty the dangerously charming shadow demon Rapha Golden requests the Council of Twelve asylum. This very act throws Simin and Centriel into a fire that instantly ignites them in more ways than one.

Thank you so very much for announcing my new book on your blog, Sally Cronin! That means a lot to me! I really appreciate all your help and support.
Welcome to the round up of posts you might have missed during the week here on Smorgasbord. Nothing new to report on the home front as we face another month in full lock down. Hopefully by the better weather (usually) appears in May we will be able to get out and about a little more. […]
Yesterday I found another wonderful exciting surprise in my mailbox! Bounty Hunter got its second 5-star review. I’m so happy, I’m about to burst. It is such an exquisite emotion to know that the books I write are loved! Thank you so much for a wonderful review!
This may be my favorite installment of this series to date. Between this one and the two previous books I’m feeling like the series is maturing as a whole. The first book “Soul Taker” did a good job of introducing us to the author’s vision of this world, while “Sundance” and “Demon Tracker” started fleshing that world and its characters out more and more. In “Bounty Hunter” we dive more deeply into this series and get a new perspective from one of the actual members of the Council of Twelve.
This time we start out seeing things from the perspective of Centriel who having seen how the world’s of his fellow Archangels have changed, and wondering if he will ever find such happiness. Then he meets Simin a Demon Hunter and soon both their worlds’ are turned upside down, and we are soon drawn deeper into the manipulations of Hell and it’s many minions.
Finally, I want to say I loved the interactions with Simin and Zei, our heroine from the last book. I also enjoy how well the author integrates characters and dangers from the previous installments series, like the fact that Sundance is still trying to deal with problems from her time as a prisoner in Hell.
In short, this latest book like it really fit nicely into the world we’ve been introduced to, while at the same time expanding it at the same time.
A really great read. Can’t wait for the next volume.
Writer’s Treasure Chest has grown enormously since I celebrated my last anniversary:
I’m so lucky to be part of the blogging world with all your help. Without guests, friends, followers, supporters, and people encouraging me again and again this blogging adventure would not have been progressing at this pace and wouldn’t have been as successful as it is.
I’m dancing and jumping around in excitement about the wonderful first 5-star review my new release ‘Bounty Hunter’ got yesterday! This is thrilling! Thanks for such an amazing review! I’m over the top happy that the book is liked!
REVIEWED BY LINDA TONIS
MEMBER OF THE PARANORMAL ROMANCE GUILD REVIEW TEAM
Archangel Centriel is having a bad day so it was suggested that he get out and fly,
something that he excels at. After a while he sits on a rock and looks out around him only to find a man running with a beautiful woman right behind. Centriel recognizes that the man is not human and when he gets down on his knees begging not to be killed his true appearance of a minotaur shows.
Simin Arnatt is a bounty hunter with secrets and once again Centriel knows he is not dealing with a mortal but is unable to detect what she truly is. The connection between the two of them is instant and Centriel realizes without a doubt that he has found his consort. She can hear his thoughts and touch his soul.
Now that Simin’s assignment is over Centriel takes her on a holiday to Bali where they can get to know each other better. The vacation is cut short when she is called for a new assignment, one ordered by Beelzebub. Rapha Golden, a demon has disappeared and Beelzebub wants him back. Zepheira is the best demon tracker and agrees to help since everyone knows that Simin is Centriel’s girl.
Knowing that this would not be an easy case since Rapha is a shadow and hard to track down both Zye and Simin are shocked when he turns himself in asking for asylum. He wants to turn to the good side and defect but is he telling the truth it will be up to the archangels to find out.
I loved the bond that Simin and Centriel formed and her acceptance by everyone else as a part of the family. Of course we touch base with other archangels and their consorts that we met previously which was nice and we still get a follow up on Sundance. I would suggest that this series be read in order just for your own enjoyment.
