Cover Reveal: God's Play by H.d. Lynn
God’s Play by H.D. Lynn
Genre: young-adult, urban-fantasy
Publisher: Curiosity Quills Press
Date of Release: September 18, 2014
Cover Artist: Alexandria Thompson http://gothicfate.com/
Sixteen-year old Toby was trained by a family of hunters to kill shape-shifters — but he has a unique weapon in his arsenal. With a touch of his hand, Toby can lift the magical protection shape-shifters use to disguise themselves as human. It’s an unusual skill for a hunter, and he prefers to kill monsters the old-fashioned way: with a blade.
Because of his special skill, Toby suspects he may be a monster himself. His suspicions deepen when William, a jackal-headed shape-shifter, saves him from an ambush where Toby’s the only survivor. And Toby doubts William helped him for purely altruistic reasons. With his list of allies running thin, Toby must reconcile his hatred of shifters and the damning truth that one saved his life. It’ll take both of them to track down the monster who ordered the ambush.
And Toby needs his unlikely alley because he has a vicious enemy — the infamous Circe, who has a vendetta to settle against the hunters. Toby has to unravel the mystery of his dual nature. And he has to do it on the run — before Circe finds him and twists him to her own ends.

Question of the Week:
Suggest a question! We need questions of the week for future FFs. Any ideas?
Hmm a good question...I guess I have a few random ones for y'all.
1. What would you do if you were the last person on Earth?
2. If you could be in any series, what would you be in and why?
3. If you were an inanimate object, what would you be and why?
4. What interests you most in the world?
These are just a few questions that if I knew you in real life, I would ask you in a daily conversation.
Teaser: Illusive by Emily Lloyd-Jones
When his eyes met hers, a hot flush spreads through her chest and neck. She feels pinned by those eyes, more visible than she has ever been. The instinct to draw upon her immunity-to disappear-is nearly impossible to resist. It's only when she realizes that Alan must be fighting the same urge to turn away that she lifts her chin and refuses to break eye contact. There's new strength in the set of his jaw and shoulders and it's the first time she's truly thought of him as something other than the last Fiacre. Excerpt from page 280, paragraph 4.
