Author Highlights Five

The Fifth month of Author Highlights is here!  Once a month I post about a single author and their books.  I am behind a month so there will be two Author Highlights in June.  Check out last month’s author Colleen Houck who wrote the Reawakened and Tiger’s Curse series Here.  But what author will we focus on today?

Alison is the author of the Dark Days Club and Eon series along with several other single books.

I have read the Dark Days Club and Eon series.  However, I have not read her other books.  The series were both wonderful and Alison’s voice is clear and strong in her books.

Eon is the story of Eon who has trained his whole life to be chosen by one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune.  He has had to master swordplay and magical aptitude.  But Eon is not as he seems for her Eona, a girl hiding in plain sight for the chance to become a Dragoneye.  However, females are forbidden from using Dragon Magic and if she is caught death will be the penalty.  As her secret surfaces, Eona is plunged into a struggle for the throne.  She must fight against those determined to take her power and her life even if it ends in catastrophe.

“Even a cornered rabbit will fight with teeth and claws.”       -Eon
“How brief and hidden were the moments of destiny.”         -Eon

On the eve of Lady Helen Wrexhall’s presentation to the Queen of England, a housemaid disappears drawing Lady Helen into the shadows of London where she meets Lord Carlston.  He is one of the few people who can stop the perpetrators; demons who are infiltrating society.  Should Helen ask for his help when his reputation is as black as his piercing eyes? And if does will it lead to disaster?

Book Review: The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman

Book Review: The Dark Days Club by Alison Goodman

It’s London, 1812 and Lady Helen Wrexhall is living a life full of balls and trying to secure a marriage proposal.  Despite that she is soon drawn into regency London when a maid of her household mysteriously disappears.  There she meets Lord Carlston, a man intent on finding and destroying the demons that infiltrate society.  Helen shouldn’t be anywhere near the man who is surrounded by a taint of scandal but he offers a way to find out why her parents died.  Soon she is drawn into a conspiracy that could destroy the world as she knows it.  But can she trust a man whose life is built on lies and does she have the strength to face the dangers of an unknown world?
