About A. R. Kahler

The first two books in The Immortal Circus trilogy – Alex Kahler’s debut novels for adults – have been international bestsellers in serial form. Martyr, the first book in his post-apocalyptic YA fantasy series called The Hunter, will be published by Spencer Hill Press in the Fall of 2014. Like Viv and the troupe, Kahler is a wanderer. As an aerialist, he has toured with circuses across America and Europe. Travel enables him to experience the wild and wonderful world, from drumming with Norse shamans to dangling from unexpected rafters. He received his master’s in creative writing from Glasgow University. Kahler writes, climbs and spins dreams in Seattle.

Synopsis for The Immortal Circus

Murdered contortionists aren’t exactly what Vivienne signed up for when she ran away to join the circus. But like most things under the big top, nothing is what it seems. With a past she can’t quite remember, Vivienne finds that running away forever might not be as appealing as it once sounded – because forever means something quite different at the Cirque de Immortals.

Aided by her friends Kingston – a feisty stage magician whose magic is quickly stealing her heart – and his sarcastic assistant Melody, Vivienne finds herself racing against the clock to discover the culprit behind a series of deaths that should be impossible. However, the answer she seeks might reveal more about her own bloody past – and future – than she bargains for.

The show’s just beginning.

My Review for The Immortal Circus

I loved The Immortal Circus. I loved the characters (especially Kingston), I loved the scene that was set. I loved the plot, and how everyone was tied into the circus in some way. Of all creatures, faes are my favorite. I have never read a book about Fae that was set like this. It was very interesting. Normally I don’t put a book like this in my Halloween series as it really was not scary, but because of the characters and the plot, I thought it was fitting. If you like the Fae or anything with magic, I recommend this to you!

Day 9 of #31AuthorsofHalloween – Laurell K Hamilton

Here is another author who I truly adore (yes, I have a lot of authors who write paranormal romance, which was my first love). A friend introduced me to this author back in 2008, with Guilty Pleasures. I was addicted at the start of the first page.

Basically, you have a necromancer who mostly raises the dead to solve crimes. She befriends Vampires and Weres, has relationships just like us (and sometimes, I wonder why some men are more emotional than me hahahaha). There are many books in the series, and in each book, you are introduced to a new character. Currently, there are many different characters. You will have your faves

Then there is the Merry Gentry series. Which I think is my favorite series of hers. Merry is a Fae, and is trying the get the throne. In order to get the throne, she must get pregnant before her cousin has a child. She is protected by different Fae, and each one takes a turn to get her pregnant. I won’t give the ending lol. Her aunt, who is the queen, is evil, and is passing the throne to her son, or Merry, like I said whoever has a child first. There are trials that Merry must go through, and through these trials, she gains allies, and basically becomes stronger.

If you love paranormal romance, violence, gore, erotica, and more all combined into these two series, please start reading them. Would I let you down?
