Spotlight #2: Carmilla Voiez and The Ballerina and The Revolutionary

As mentioned yesterday over the next few days we're going to be spotlighting the lovely author Carmilla Voiez and her books. Yesterdays post spotlighted Carmilla first and her Starblood Trilogy. Today we're looking at The Ballerina and The Revolutionary...

 
 
 
~Blurb~

Vivienne realizes she is dying. All she wants to do is see her daughter Giselle one last time and apologise. But Giselle no longer exists and it is Crow, a gender-queer anarchist, who returns to a family home that is plagued by ghosts and violent memories.


With the help of a shaman ze met in a dream, Crow unravels terrifying family secrets, hoping to find closure at last. But can anyone survive the shadows that lurk behind these fairy tales?

Intrigued? I know I was. Here's a couple of teasers and excerpts from the book...

 
 

~EXCERPT 1~

"My name was Crow. I was nineteen years old and had spent most of my life trying to escape all forms of hierarchy, most accurately portrayed for me, by the image of the matriarch, i.e. my crazy mother.


Mother’s name was Vivienne. We didn’t look alike, we didn’t act alike and we certainly didn’t think alike. Vivienne was a prima ballerina before she gave birth to me and I had all the grace of an elephant. She wore long, floating skirts and big jewellery, while I felt more comfortable in combats and t-shirts and hated the long hair she made me wear as a child, a symbol of begrudging femininity that never felt comfortable. My head was shaved now, much easier.

As far as I could remember I had always hated her, and she me. I never figured out what she wanted from me and simply assumed it was my unhappiness. Once free of her oppression, I naturally transferred this simmering animosity to other unworthy authority figures, but things were rarely as simple as they seemed.

I survived the blow from the shield, although the crowd were moved on and the building cleared. A pity really, another community space handed over to the country's rich elite. It made my head spin. I never understood the principle of profit over people. There were a lot of things I didn’t understand, but in the end I was a fighter and I guess I existed outside of society. It was easier that way, less complicated, and I could keep my priorities in check. I liked to think of myself as a freedom fighter, like my dad. The squat had everything I needed and I did a bit of this and that to make enough money to feed myself. All I had ever wanted was to survive and be free.

It’s why I left home when I did, at thirteen."
 
 

~Excerpt 2~

 
 
"I thought I heard footsteps in the room above - Vivienne’s room. At first I assumed it was the sound of old water pipes shaking until I heard the sound again, more clearly than before. Hackles up, I silently put down my cutlery and pulled the knife from my bag. I slipped off my boots and crept up the stairs.

Portraits loomed over my head. I shrank beneath the weight of their stares. My ears grasped echoes of resentful whispers and I hung my head in shame. Ashamed of what? I couldn’t remember, not really, perhaps it was purely that I wasn’t more like her.

I faced her door, shaking with fear, expecting her to rush out at any moment, screaming my name or slapping my face. I concentrated on my breathing, trying in vain to calm down. I was grown up now. She couldn’t hurt me anymore.

Mastering my fear, I opened her bedroom door and inspected the empty room. Vivienne’s huge bed crouched in the corner like a monster ready to pounce. Shadows lingered at the edges, a dark audience to mother’s regular performances. The air smelt stale. It reeked of old perfume, sweat and sex."

So now we've looked at The Ballerina and The Revolutionary, here's a bit about Carmilla and the places that you can stalk her...

  
~Author Bio~

Carmilla Voiez is a new voice in the world of horror and dark fantasy. Her imagery harks back to the writings of Clive Barker and H P Lovecraft, but her voice is uniquely female. A varied diet of feminism and activism, a deep love of horror and a fascination with the Goth aesthetic created the creature of darkness we find today. Her books are both extraordinarily personal and universally challenging. As Jef Rouner of Houston Press once said - "You do not read her books, you survive them."

Carmilla lives in North East Scotland and finds inspiration in the wildlife, castles and desolate places that surround her. She lives with her two children, cats, and a poet, by the sea.

Carmilla's short stories can be found in a number of anthologies, including Klarissa Dreams. Her novels "The Ballerina and the Revolutionary" and "The Starblood Trilogy" are available for Kindle and in paperback. The Starblood graphic novel with art by Anna Prashkovich is due out on Sep 30 and the team have already started work on Psychonaut the graphic novel. A complete collection of her short stories "Broken Mirror and Other Morbid Tales" is due to follow in 2017. Carmilla Voiez also writes erotica and a collection of these stories is available for Kindle.

Over the next few days we're going to be spotlighting the lovely author Carmilla Voiez and her books. I'll be starting by introducing you to Carmilla, then I'll continue on to her books and of course all the places you can stalk her and find her work. Without further ado I present CARMILLA VOIEZ...

So now we've met Carmilla, lets take a look at her books. We'll start with The Starblood Trilogy...


~Blurb~

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR

Satori, an adept Chaos Magician, casts a spell to try and win back his lost love, Star. Lilith, mother of demons, has other ideas. Summoned by Satori's magic, she makes it her mission to manipulate and separate the doomed lovers.

Satori knows he and Star are meant to be together. He battles demons, travels worlds and even transcends death for her but, however much she begs, he can't grant her the freedom she craves.

The Starblood Trilogy is a tale of sorcery, demonology, murder, sexual obsession and Gothic subculture. In the words of Jef Rouner (Houston Press) "You don't read [Carmilla Voiez's] books. You survive them." and Starblood may be the most brutal female-centred horror of them all. Winner of numerous indie awards, The Starblood Trilogy is being adapted into a series of graphic novels with art by Anna Dmitrieva.

"Carmilla Voiez is more of a singer than a writer. She tells her compelling story in a hypnotic, distinctive voice that brings her eerie world vividly to life." Graham Masterton.

Intrigued? I know I was. Here's a couple of teasers and excerpts from the book...

~EXCERPT #1~


Chapter 1
Satori stands in the centre of his bedroom. His fingers and the lace cuffs of his shirt are stained from the charcoal he uses to scribble symbols. Markings cover every surface: the bare floorboards, ceiling and walls. Even his wardrobe and door are covered in intricate black sigils.
He unbuttons his shirt, swearing as he leaves fingerprints on the cotton. After tossing the garment on to his bed, he unzips his jeans, and forces the denim over his legs and to the floor. Standing naked, he smells himself. There is no trace of her scent on his body. Realising this feels like losing her all over again.
His fragile-looking, angular body is lost in the forest of writing. It expands around him, a web of ancient knowledge. The tips of his fingers prickle with energy.
He pulls silver rings from his fingers. Pushing back his shoulder-length hair, he removes the hoops from his left ear, and finally the silver stud from his sharply pointed nose. His jewellery jingles like tiny bells as he lets it fall, scattering like distant stars across the midnight duvet. On his pillow, dozens of photographs lie like fallen leaves. Some are intact but most are torn or defaced. Her face holds his thoughts for a moment: pale, perfect and framed by a mass of ebony curls. He shakes his head to clear her image. After this is over he will make her love him again. Maybe she will beg for his forgiveness. A wolfish grin grows across his face at the thought of Star on her knees, begging him to take her back. He licks his lips. His face feels hot, his body cold. In spite of his impatience to start the ritual, he waits. Sucking deep breaths in through his nostrils, he collects his thoughtshe mustn’t rush. He must be in control of himself and his desires.
 
Whispering, he draws the same glyphs on his body. He starts with his toes and the soles of his feet, moving upwards and over his skin with practised dexterity. Charcoal drags against his skin, which blossoms pink below each mark. The growing tattoo obscures his features.
Although he knows the words he needs to say, he reads the passage again, to be certain. He draws two circles on the floor and steps into one of them. With the fingers of his right hand he traces a pentagram in the air before him. Then he recites the words, his voice slow and clear, pronouncing each syllable with care.
‘ … This is my will,’ he says finally.
 
 
 
~Excerpt 2~
 
Satori does not want to step towards her. She is Star, but she is more and less than that. She is a dark goddess, mother to a demon child, terrifying in aspect, but at the same time she is destroyed, ravaged and broken. Yet he knows these things are surface. He feels a force behind them, brightness and strength. It frightens him.
‘Hurry up, Satori. What are you waiting for?’ Star asks.
He swallows hard and pulls himself to his feet. His muscles shake as he takes two steps towards her. The stench of her putrefying flesh unmasks him and he weeps.
‘Stay strong,’ she tells him. She untangles one arm from the child and reaches behind her.
The disturbed baby swivels its head and looks towards Satori. Its green eyes do not blink and when it smiles, teeth like needles decorate its mouth.
Star reaches towards Satori. Jewels glint in her fist: his dagger. He forces his arm towards her. When their fingers meet an icy chill burns his skin, but he does not let go. He grips her delicate fingers in his own and remembers how she used to be.
‘I love you,’ he says.
Her smile grows wider and blood drips from her mouth. ‘I know,’ she answers. ‘I love you too.’


~EXCERPT #3~

Mark pulls his coat around him. A fire crackles in a metal bin at the other side of the tunnel. Its promise of warmth calls to him like a siren, but the crowd around the flames warns him to stay back. Who knows whether they are friend or foe? Hiding is safer.
He wonders whether he will see his mother tomorrow. If I do, will I be too frightened to confront her? Why should I be afraid of anything? I’m her son. She has to love me, doesn’t she? Even so, fear consumes him. Greedy faces look at him in expectation, fear in some eyes and desire in others. Everyone seems to want something from him, while all he wants is to be left alone. If only I could wear a cloak to shield me from their prying eyes. The filthy stink of his body should be camouflage enough, but it isn’t. They see him, the real him, through the grime and they want him. He doesn’t know exactly what they want, but he is certain it is something he isn’t willing to give.
A can rattles at the end of the tunnel. Mark looks up and sees a group of young men stride through the darkness toward the fire. The men move confidently and appear strong. They do not shuffle or wheeze. This is not their home. So why are they here? Is it for me? He hears cruel laughter and his body stiffens.
The people around the fire notice the strangers approach. Mud-stained heads turn and grimy bodies jerk inelegantly around the flaming bin. The light in the tunnel shifts and dances. Through strobe-like illumination, the men approach. They look more menacing than ever as their shaven heads are thrown alternately into shadow then light.
The leader twists his arm and a heavy chain uncoils by his side. Mark pushes himself further into shadow as the strangers move closer to the hobos around the fire.
‘Fuck off!’ A drunken man lurches from behind the fire bin towards the group of skinheads.
‘What did you say, Grandpa?’ The leader strides towards the swaying man.
The drunk shakes his head, thinking better of his plan and moves to walk away.
The man with the chain lifts his hand and cracks his metal whip against the skull of the staggering drunk. The vagrant’s knees buckle and he falls to the floor. Stagnant water rises around his body. The skinheads gather around the fallen body like hyenas. Mark notices a thread of blood flow from the man’s head, making the water around him pink.

~Book Info~

Blaine reluctantly forces himself to forget the woman and allows her to live her life without his intervention. It wasn’t until 50-years-later that the distant memories of the captivating Mary are brought back to the surface. Blaine has the pleasure to encounter the young Wendy Slate, granddaughter of Mary Slate after a criminal vampire keeps her hostage. Blaine got there in time to stop the criminal, but not to stop the beginning of Wendy’s transition into Vampirism.

As he was forced to sire her into this new world, he discovers that Wendy is the most amazing person he’d ever met. Wendy has to make a life-altering decision as Blaine has to deal with his blooming feelings for a woman who was identical to his first love.

~My Review~

Disclaimer: I received a free ecopy as part of this blog tour and in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.

Let me start by saying that I thought Vampire Creed by Rain Grey was a really good book but I was left feeling a tad underwhelmed and I'm unsure why.

Barnaby Blaine Rice; Blaine was born a vampire a long time ago. Blaine fell in love with a married human, and killed another vampire over her. This meant that Blaine was in debt to the vampire council as his punishment for killing another vampire. Blaine's latest task set by the council is to look after and protect Wendy.

Wendy Slate was attacked and kidnapped by a vampire, and is now in a state of transition from human to vampire. It is at this point that Blaine breaks in and rescues her from this vampire. Once away from her captor Blaine gives Wendy a choice. She can complete the transition to vampire or not complete the transition and she will die. Wendy's choice is...

When women who look like Wendy begin turning up dead, the vampire council task Blaine with finding out who is responsible and putting a stop to it.

The plot is clear and well thought out. The pace is good, it starts a little slower and gathers momentum. There is a good amount of background information and it was given at the appropriate points within the story.

The characters were good, they showed some development and had plenty of emotion, making them appear realistic. They interacted with each other well too.

I personally didn't feel an attachment to them or as though I was fully immersed in their lives but I honestly don't know why, even after waiting 2 weeks before writing my review. I guess it's just one of life's little mysteries!!!

If you like vampires, vampire romance or supernatural I would recommend giving Vampire Creed a go. It is a good book.

Excerpt:
 
Heavy-duty glass stairs and banisters lined the route to the plush flooring on the upper floor. Ten square open seated areas faced the main dance floor allowing us to mingle with the other VIP’s if we wanted to socialize. We were led to the first one on the right, and I couldn’t help but notice we’d snagged the best spot because we could see the DJ and the crowd dancing below. Even though we were cut off from the main dancefloor, we still felt a part of the normal stuff happening below. Six bottles of champagne were already chilling in coolers on the side tables dotted between the deep red velvet seating as Amber ran excitedly toward the area and sat rubbing her hands on the soft material, “Thank you, guys. This is absolutely unreal. I can’t believe you’ve done all of this for us.”
Valerie smiled and snuck her hand up the inside of my shirt, “You’re incredible, Flynn. Look how happy she is. Thank you, for planning this.”
“I did this for us as much as for them. How often have I had the time to spend having slow sexy dances with my girl?”
Apart from our night in Chicago, I’d never taken her dancing. I planned to straighten that out.
“From now on Valerie, we’re ditching all the shitty parts that go with RedA, and we’re going to have some fun. Taking her by the hand, I led her over to the plush sofas and sat on one taking her down with me sitting her on my knee. Surprisingly, she straddled my lap and planted a wet kiss on my neck, “Mmm, very nice,” she murmured as she shivered and wiggled her pussy on my hard dick.
“You’re a fucking tease, you know that Ms. Darsin?” I snickered and cupped her ass in the palms of my hands while I stole a deep, passionate kiss.
We were interrupted when Kayden tapped on Valerie’s shoulder and bent to speak in her ear, “I’d rather you were a bit more restrained in front of me, Sis,” he scowled.
Valerie glanced at me and smirked knowingly, “Kayden, what are you, my dad? Flynn’s a rock star, he’s got a reputation to keep, you’ll just have to suck it up,” she retorted, before pulling my hair back and kissing me again.
Breaking the kiss I chuckled when I saw Kayden rub the back of his neck because I knew he wanted to knock me the fuck out, but Valerie had spoken, and I was damned if I was going to apologize for kissing my girl.

Spotlight: 2 Books by Jason Ellis

It's time to spotlight an author and his work. This is a new author to me and I am yet to read his work. He is a UK author and I'm very pleased to be helping him out. Please keep reading for more about author Jason Ellis and 2 of his books...

The first book I'm spotlighting of Jason's is: 


Female: 918: Part I: Exist & Survive (Exist. Survive. Live.)

~Synopsis~

There are seventeen inked dots on the inside of my left forearm - to indicate my age - plus the identifier, F-918. That is my name, the only one I have ever been known by. -- A future impossible to imagine. The world is a connected entity, covered in train tracks which link countries and floating cities. The advancements in technology and science also carry a darker edge. Slavery has returned. People are grown to serve. Executions are commonplace to keep the workforce in line. -- I am a biological product. I am here solely to serve and toil for others. I do not have any rights, I do not have a name or a voice that can be heard in the world, except my own thoughts, my own internal monologue. -- Many disagree, and argue on behalf of the slaves, for a fairer way of life, yet their words change nothing. One path remains. Brutal. Necessary. War. -- I hear the rhythmic thud of military boots as a platoon of soldiers hurtle towards us both on their way to secure the area. The boy stares at me again. Despite his injured lip, he manages a smile and his eyes widen. "… And we're going to win," he says.

The second of Jason's books I'll be spotlighting is:



My Long Journey To Sincerity: Elana Mayne

~Synopsis~

I'll be donating a percentage of royalties from every sale of this one to ME/ CFS research :)

Another shift in the dream occurs before I receive an answer. I'm now standing at the front door. "Goodbye, Mother, Father. I'm so sorry about everything. I will come back to you, even if it takes me the rest of my life, I will find my way back to you." My mother wipes a tear off of her cheek. "Be safe, Elana. You know we will always love you … we'll always trust and believe you." My father stands just behind her, emotional himself yet keeping his silent, stern exterior. "I love you too, Mother … and you, Father." I hold out my hand. I want to feel the touch of my parents one last time … know their comfort … The hallway darkens. I see my parents standing hundreds of feet away, unreachable … then the darkness swallows everything like an insatiable beast.

A future not so far away ... the world changed after the virus. It spread across the globe at a cruel speed, cutting through the population with no remorse. Every aspect of life transformed: the balance of power, law, education ... the very core of society itself became moulded by the new global power. They control everything. They are Central Government.

Sixteen year old Elana Mayne overhears a secret conversation and witnesses a terrible crime. Her world crumbles afterwards and she is lost, surrounded by lies ... changed forever. Can she learn to trust again? Can she fight the regime that betrayed and so easily abandoned her? Is she capable of revenge?
