I am so happy to be part of the tour for Monsters & Angels. A little while ago, I shared the cover reveal for this, and knew then it sounded like a book that I would love to get my hands on. I can always use some mysterious vampires in my life and let me tell you, it was definitely worth the wait. I have a review for the book and the trailer is below also.
Don’t forget to enter the giveaway, it is a good one.
Monsters & Angels
by Anne Marie Andrus
Publication date: October 2017
Genres: New Adult, Paranormal, Historical, Romance
Fledgling nurse Sorcha Alden knew she had the skills to save lives, but she never dreamed that her own life would be the one in danger.
Driven by tragedy to honor her family name, Sorcha embarks on a journey that takes her from the bleak but familiar streets of New York, through the sultry and seductive city of New Orleans, and into the brutal jungles of Nepal. Forging friendships and carrying on her mother’s mission of healing was her dream. Plunging into a love affair with the mysterious Dr. Ashayle could have been a fairytale.
Being murdered and waking up as a blood-thirsty monster—became her living nightmare.
Torn away form a life that had just begun, Sorcha returns to New Orleans as a newborn vampire, forced to start over in a cutthroat underworld of devilry and decadence. Complicated politics, bitter rivals and jealous ancestors stand between her and the promises she’s still determined to keep.
In a realm where the boundary between good and evil is as murky as the Mississippi River and immortal does not mean invincible, will Sorcha ever risk her shattered heart and love again? Can the magical harmony of the Crescent City give her enough courage to fulfill her eternal destiny?
Monster & Angels takes us on a journey set in the 30’s with a young lady named Sorcha, who is a nurse that recently graduated top her class. She is well on her to becoming an amazing nurse with a wonderful career ahead of her. After a horrible family loss, she finds herself in New Orleans working in a hospital, but not long after, the nurses and doctors are sent to Nepal to aid the people there. Everything changes for Sorcha, and not in any way that she would have though possible.
Sorcha was grieving, and taking the job in New Orleans was supposed to be a new start for her. She learns to make some new friends, and then there is Dr. Banitierre, who is her boss, he is mysterious, he looks at her with this piercing stare and is the epitome of gorgeous, and she is mesmerized by him as well. She has no clue as to why though. He’s also very arrogant. While in Nepal, she meets another Dr. who she falls for almost instantly, and while I am not a fan on insta-love, there was something about this that just warmed my heart. Vir was sweet and caring.
The setting in Nepal was eerie from the start, and when Sorcha was attacked one night though, I was curious as to what or who was behind the attack. The voices she heard right before the attack made me question, was it a really an animal or some kinda of creature who was sent after her. Or was it something far more dangerous. Who Dr. Banitierre truly was exposed when he whisked her back to New Orleans, leaving her friends and lover to believe she was dead. But this is where all the twists and turns came in, with rival vampires at every turn and boy does it pick up speed. Toward this pretty epic battle and an ending that let me sitting staring at my Kindle, saying “what!!!” That’s the end. I need more, I need more answers! I am hoping that is going to be another book, because it left so many unanswered questions. But jeez, it was great!
Monsters & Angels was a enthralling story of paranormal battles and steamy romances. And I can’t wait to see what happens next!
Anne Marie has been an equestrienne, chorale singer, candy-striper, EMT, and baseball fan. Roaming the back roads of New Jersey with her family, she found great respect for antiques, historical locations and the stories they hold. Her current list of favorite pastimes include coffee, bourbon, and Les Miserables–which requires more bourbon. She has been known to attend sporting events just for the flyover. The boat she and her husband christened Glory Days, is her escape from the chaos of everyday life.
The inspiration for Anne Marie’s debut novel, Monsters & Angels, is her fascination with vampires and her passion for everything New Orleans. When she isn’t writing, she can be found working nights with the critical care team in a busy trauma center.
