{Blitz Tour} for Crave the Darkness by Amanda Bonilla


Today Seeing Night Reviews is the next stop in the Crave the Darkness Blurb Blitz tour for author Amanda Bonilla! Dont miss the exclusive excerpt below and a chance to win a copy of CTD!

MY THOUGHTS:
I'm a huge fan of this series, not only because Bonilla herself is such a cool author to chat with but because of her creative writing and unforgettable characters. The books I read always have a strong protagonist and Darian is everything I could ask for in a kick butt heroine, she is one who taught herself how to survive and protects those closest to her. Not only do the readers get to follow Darian but there are Fae, Jinn and lots of magic that you'll definitely be craving for more! I highly recommend this series and hope everyone enjoys this action packed Urban Fantasy series as much as I have.

EXCERPT:
     Eventually, I’d have to address the mess. But not tonight. I sifted through the ocean of mail, most of it a waste of per­fectly good trees. Almost all of my bills were set up for auto- pay, so really, the paper bills were more of a formality. A flash of color caught my eye, and I fished through the expired sale ads and catalogs. My fingers shook when I picked up the postcard, a lovely picturesque view of Battery Park. Charles­ton, South Carolina was scrolled across the top.

     I flipped it over to find, Wish you were here! written in black ink. Not that I was surprised. This made three post­cards in just over six months. What the fuck was going on?

     “Who are they from?” Raif asked from behind me. I should have felt his presence, but my concentration had been elsewhere. The air pressure changed, a shifting of matter as Raif passed from shadow to his solid form. He stepped to the wall where a keypad had been installed, and a series of beeps was followed by a long, drawn out tone— t least someone knew the security code.

     “A dead man,” I answered, becoming corporeal myself. “Still following me, huh?”

     “Someone’s got to keep an eye on you. Who is he, Dar­ian?”

     I turned to face him and leaned my hip against the table. “His name was Lorik. He was the son of Vasili Egorov, an Armenian mob boss who’d been a pretty big deal on the west coast in the thirties. Vasili asked Azriel to hide Lorik after he’d gotten in deep with one of the old man’s rivals. I don’t know the hows and whys of it, but Az helped Lorik lay low— pretty much all over the country. I think he figured Lorik would be tougher to pin down if he was always moving. He sent postcards from every city he settled in. But . . .” My voice trailed off, lost in memories.

     “But what, Darian?”

     “He’s human, Raif. By all rights, Lorik Egorov should be dead.”

     Raif stood, contemplating. His right hand contracted into a fist and relaxed.

     “I never should have killed him, Raif.”

     He lifted his eyes to me in question.

     “Azriel. I never should have killed him.”

BLURB:
Nothing comes easy for Darian. Her heightened powers make her indispensable to the Shaede Nation, but dangerous missions have driven her lover, Tyler, to his breaking point. Darian must salvage their bond, but a new assignment to protect Anya—a fellow Shaede and the first of their kind to become pregnant in centuries—stands in their way.

It doesn’t help that the two Shaedes are longtime rivals and share nothing besides mutual hatred. But when it becomes clear that someone—or something—is bent on destroying the expectant mother and her unborn child, Darian must put her feelings aside and track down Anya’s would-be assassin.

As she probes into Anya’s past, Darian digs up long-buried secrets—and a connection between Tyler and the mission that could destroy everything between them…
