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!

Book Review – The P.I. Witch: The Witch, The Prince & the Evil Jester (Part 1)

*Disclaimer: This book contains an affiliate link

*Disclaimer: I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review

If you love a book that has the classic Fairytale creatures and mystery, The P.I. Witch: The Witch, The Prince & the Evil Jester (Part 1) is the book for your reading needs.

Synopsis

The story follows P. I. Witch, Jayson Santos as he mourns the loss of an old friend and mentor, a Sorceress named Agatha.

Of course it’s revealed that Agatha’s death brings a lot more drama than anyone can anticipate, one of which involves Jayson’s ex-husband, Prince Nathaniel Echoes coming back into the Witch’s life.

But Jason and Nathaniel’s reunion is cut short when a Demonic assassin attacks them causing Jayson to reveal a huge revelation and the rise of an Evil Jester kidnapping Magic School Students doesn’t help make anything easier for the Witch.

If you’re a fan of ‘Charmed‘ ‘Once Upon a Time‘, and ‘Dante’s Cove‘ and Fairytales in general, then you’d definitely enjoy this novella!

I thought this was an adorable story. You have love, you have history, ogres, princesses, princes, witches, shapeshifters, and more. It starts off with a high school student who, in detail, looks like a pig. He has the ability to conjure up this evil being called Rowan No End. Anyways, this kid is bullied, conjures up Rowan No End, and poof! The kid goes missing. The Dean at the school calls Jayson, who has a past with Nathaniel. So, of course, Nathaniel tags along, and helps Jayson solve the mystery.

You are time traveled between the present time, and as far as 1519. I love how the story jumps around to different times, and you are introduced to new characters, and finding out how everyone is connected. Like I said earlier, adorable.

I give Edwin’s story 5 stars, and I cannot wait to read the next book. I hope it was just as fun as reading part one. Good job Edwin!
