My Teaser for this week is from
Dark Alchemy #2
by Laura Bickle
My Teaser from 78% of the eBook.
Gabe held the coyote while she succeeded in sticking duct tape to his fur. When she was finished, it looked like she had a coyote dressed in a pink poodle suit. He glowered at her, clearly resenting the loss of the last bit of street cred he owned.
She grabbed him one last time and wrapped a piece of welding blanket around him like a cape.
“There. Now you look like a Jedi.”
This seemed to be acceptable. Sig snorted.
I’ve read several of Laura’s books and always love her characters. Sig is a favorite of mine.
This is from a scene where they are about to go up against the basilisk and she’s trying to protect Sig from it’s venom.
Lots of stuff happening in this second book. Too much to tell without spoiling it for you. I’ll do my best.
We’re back with Petra and her loyal coyote companion, Sig, and they are quickly drawn into the mystery of a giant serpent slithering through the park, killing in horrific ways. The hunt is on.
And Gabe and the other Hanged Men are also hunting the Basilisk. They need its blood to save the alchemy tree that gives them life. It’s dying and the serpents blood might be their last chance to save it, and themselves.
Something kept me from falling immediately in love with this one. Not sure what, but by the end, the author got five stars out of me. I adore Petra, Sig, and Gabe. And she always gives me the most spectacular villains to vote off the island.
I’m in luck and have the third book sitting right beside me. Off to more mad adventures and danger with some favorite characters.
Something venomous has come to Temperance …
It’s been two months since Petra Dee and her coyote sidekick Sig faced off against Temperance’s resident alchemist, but things are far from quiet. When an Internet video of a massive snake in the backcountry of Yellowstone goes viral, a chase for the mythical basilisk is on. Monster hunters swarm into the area, and never one to pass up the promise of discovery, Petra joins in the search.
Among the newcomers is a snake cult on wheels―the biker gang Sisters of Serpens. Unlike some, the Sisters don’t want to kill the basilisk―they want to worship it. But things get complicated when the basilisk develops a taste for human flesh that rivals the Sisters’ own murderous skills.
Meanwhile, the alchemical tree of life is dying, and the undead Hanged Men of Temperance who depend on it know the basilisk may be their last chance for survival.
With time running out for everyone around her, Petra will be forced to decide who survives and who she must leave behind in this action-packed sequel to Dark Alchemy.
I’ve read the first book, Dark Alchemy. Click on the cover for my review.
And I’ll be reviewing the third book, Nine Of Stars on December 21st.
I’ve also read the first book in her Hallowed Ones Series.
And enjoyed the first two books in her Anya Kalinczyk Series.
