A Must Read - Chain of Souls

Special day today.  My friend Maria Zannini's latest, Chain of Souls, is live and waiting for you.  Chain of Souls is Book Two in Maria's Second Chance series and is really a must read. 

Shannon McKee is caught between Michael, the angel from Hell who took her soul, and Liam, the fallen angel she loves. Now Ziva, the Angel of Death, is offering Liam deal. Do the unthinkable and she will get him reinstated into Heaven.  Refuse and she will destroy those he loves, including Shannon. 

This novella is fast paced (I'll admit I read it in one sitting) with fascinating characters and some twists you will not see coming.  A great romance that will have you thinking about the afterlife a whole new way.

Chain of Souls is available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords

I also recommend the first book in this series, The Devil to Pay.  Seriously, wouldn't you like to know how Shannon managed to lose her soul and end up caught between two Angels who want every way. 

The Devil to Pay is available on Amazon, B&N, and Smashwords.

And check out Maria's new contest, Mention Chain of Souls and Get Eaten.

It would be great to give Maria a big launch day so if you're thinking about buying Chain of Souls (and why wouldn't you?), do it today. Helping to spread the word would be nice, too.

Groaner of the Day:  An angel went to see St. Peter.

"All I do," the angel said, "is play the harp endlessly, and I'm getting bored."

St. Peter asked, "What would you rather do?"

The angel answered, "I like to dance."

"We don't allow dancing here in heaven," St. Peter said, "but I can see you need a change so I will allow you to take advantage of a once-in-an-eternal-lifetime offer. I will allow you 24 hours leave to return to earth and dance."

"I'm gone," the angel said and in a trice the angel was in California and quickly found a dance hall run by Samuel Frank. Checking the harp and wings, the angel boogied and danced and had a great time until just seconds remained of the leave.

The angel grabbed up the wings and immediately was in heaven again. Returning to St. Peter, the angel said, "I'm back and I am so happy. I'll never feel bored again."

St. Peter said, "That's wonderful, but where is your musical instrument?"

"Oh, no," the angel said, "I left my harp in Sam Frank's Disco."

Interesting book, though not my usual taste. I'll definitely consider a purchase of it today to help with the launch. ☺ Loved the groaner. Happy Monday!

Where would I be without friends like you? Thank you so much for the lovely shout-out and links.

I'm so glad you liked Chain of Souls. The first few reviews are always nail-biters for me.

Okay. I did not see that coming. LOL.

I gotta say I'd pick the book up and check it out just by the cover. Interesting! :)

Larri - Go for it. You'll get to try something different and help out a great blog friend at the same time. If you're not a follower of Maria's blog, be sure to stop over.

LD Masterson said...

Maria - You laughed at a groaner! This really is a red letter day.

(And I really did love Chain of Souls.)

LD Masterson said...

Jessica - Even more impressive, Maria designed that cover herself. So you know the book's got to be great.

Go. Buy. Enjoy. Tell your friends.
