Blindsight by Kait Nolan
My review:
I am not the world's largest fan of short stories; I find them particularly hard to review since very little growth character wise is ever brought into play.  This is not true for this book.  More even than character development I find I love the world the author has created and fluffed out sufficiently for the readers sake to seem foreign enough and familiar still.  What I liked most about the book is the fact that the author said enough to make me wish it was not a short story but rather the beginning of a full novel.  I am sure to be looking for the next two books in this series since I really enjoyed reading this short story.  I am sure most of you will agree once you read the story.

Via Goodreads
 Isla's ability as a Seer has made her a life-long captive of a paranormal crime lord. Fae assassin, Ransom, offers her a chance at escape, but when she touches his hand she sees only blood, horror, apocalypse. What reason can Ransom have for wanting to rescue her, and can she possibly trust a man who deals in death?

About the author thanks to Goodreads
I’m a southern gal, Mississippi born and raised. My nose stuck in a book is where I spent most of my days. Chillin’ out maxin’, relaxin’ all cool… oh wait, I’m starting to rhyme with the Fresh Prince theme song. Sorry…

Seriously though, I love books. I was a voracious reader, starting way back with Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys. I moved from mystery to paranormal to romance to romantic suspense. My writing tastes have changed over the years until I’ve now dabbled in a little bit of everything. These days the focus is on paranormal romance. Whether kicking ass or spouting sass, the heroines I write typify the strengths of women–both overt and discovered. I love me some alpha heroes, but I always seem to gravitate toward telling the women’s story.

I’m shooting to be traditionally published someday. In the meantime, I’m juggling a full time job in university level research, and two part time teaching positions that take advantage of my Master’s degree in clinical psychology. While I’m waiting for my ship to come in and for some agent or editor to decide I’m more awesome than Stephanie Meyer, I’m working on building an audience for myself one blog post, one tweet, one read at a time.

So, thanks for stopping by and listening. And in case that cupcake made you hungry, you can also find me over at my cooking blog, Pots and Plots where I regularly share my favorite recipes.
A note by the author courtesy of the prologue in the book:

After hours, she uses her powers for good, creating escapist fiction. The work of this Mississippi native is packed with action, romance, and the kinds of imaginative paranormal creatures you’d want to sweep you off your feet…or eat your boss.

  1. Nice blog. As a lover of words you might be interested in the word play involved in cryptic crosswords. I am doing a series of posts on solving cryptic clues. This was the first one I did. Hope you enjoy.
