Immortal Eclipse by Sherry Soule
Release Date: May 15, 2013
Publisher: Disenchanted Publishing, Inc.; 360 pages
Mystery, Murder, Manolo Blahnik
A devoted fashionata and practical New Yorker, Skylar Blackwell doesn’t believe in the supernatural—until she inherits Summerwind Mansion. . . .
When her uncle is brutally murdered, and the cops seem uninterested in following up the case, Skylar journeys to California to seek answers. Her search for clues is soon overshadowed by haunting nightmares of a young woman also murdered in the house.
Now the inhabitants of Summerwind are mysteriously dying, leaving no evidence as to how or why, and Skylar finds herself in a deadly race against time to expose the killer—before they strike again.
Armed with only wit and Pradas, Skylar begins questioning the servants, but the growing list of suspects includes the sexy and brooding caretaker, Dorian, a man desperately trying to forget his tragic past. And a major distraction for Skylar.
Determined to play detective—instead of the fashion police—and unravel the dark history of the mansion, Skylar is plunged into an otherworldly mystery that not even she can explain away. As the boundaries between reality and dreams blur, Skylar’s greatest challenge is to stay alive long enough to learn the truth.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I also found out this book was going on tour, so I thought I could kill two birds with one stone. I always love promoting books I like/love, so this was the perfect opportunity to do so.
I'll be the first to admit, as much as I love my Project Runway, as far as fashion is concerned it is not really my thing. At first, in the beginning of this book, I almost felt like the fashion was too much in your face. Granted our main character is a fashion photographer, I felt the amount was unnecessary. Throughout the book it becomes less and less. To me, this story didn't need any of the fashion elements. Luckily for me, once the book progressed the fashion elements didn't distract me from the story.
We are hit pretty quickly with the supernatural element of this book, but it is a very mysterious even that happens and it makes you want to continue to read the book. Skylar's life has seem to take a tailspin, losing her uncle, losing her job, she decides to head out to California to try to figure out more about her uncles mysterious death and check out the mansion that he has left her in his will. Even before Skylar reaches the mansion, weird and creepy stuff begins to happen, and from that point on, I was hooked. I kept wondering when I wasn't reading it, what was going on.
I loved Dorian right away, even though most of the time I wanted to smack him. Ugh, men are always difficult aren't they? Dorian was also another reason to keep reading. I couldn't get enough of him!! There are awesome twist and turns, mysteries and murders that happen in this book. It was a fun ride, it was fun to read a semi thriller/mystery book! This is a good read, pick it up!!!
“Author Sherry Soule’s IE DREAM CAST”
Today’s guest post is provided by author Sherry Soule, who is celebrating the release of her newest adult novel, IMMORTAL ECLIPSE. If you like supernatural suspense mingled with a dash of chick-lit and a healthy dose of paranormal romance, then this is the book for you!
This would be Sherry’s dream cast of actors if her books were made into a movie. So without further ado here are her top actor picks...
Skylar Blackwell is snarky, stubborn, and passionate about fashion—especially footwear—type of heroine, that any woman who can understand that being fashionable, spunky, and having designer shoes is important (a girl after my own heart)...even if you’re solving a supernatural murder mystery. It is a hard choice between these two radiant and talented actresses (love their shoes in these pics!), Kristin Kreuk or Nina Dobrev:
I like tortured heroes, and mine is Dorian, a broken man, who wrestles with his inner demons. He is haunted by his past, scarred by memories of an unrequited love that broke his heart. For the part of the tragic hero, I think these brilliant and hunky actors would be great: Kellan Lutz or Jensen Ackles:
For Skylar’s courageous friend, Emma, I like theses remarkable actresses: Drew Barrymore or Christina Applegate:
For the mysterious and smarmy Victor Pratt, I like this actor, Jay Ryan:
For the cute and outspoken, Margaret, I think this actress would be great, Jessica Parker Kennedy:
For the grumpy housekeeper, Mrs. Pratt, I like this amazing actress, Phyllis Logan:
Hope you enjoyed this post. It has been an honor to share my actor picks with all of you. If you haven’t seized your copy of IMMORTAL ECLIPSE yet, please do so. Chilling and thrilling escapades await you! Now go feed your mind and read a book. Preferably mine. ;-)
