First in a chilling new paranormal romantic suspense series from award-winning author Abbie Roads

He’s found her at last
Cain Killion knows himself to be a damaged man, his only saving grace the extrasensory connection to blood that he uses to catch murderers. His latest case takes a macabre turn when he discovers a familiar and haunting symbol linking the crime to his own horrific past-and only one woman could know what it means.

Only to lose her to a nightmare
Mercy Ledger is brave, resilient, beautiful-and in terrible danger. The moment he sees Mercy, Cain knows he’s the one who can save her. He also knows he’s beyond redemption. But the lines between good and evil blur and the only thing clear to Cain and Mercy is that they belong together. Love is the antidote for blood-but is their bond strong enough to overcome the evil that stalks them?

I was totally shocked by this book. If this book wasn’t categorized as a romance I would have sworn I was reading a thriller and a dark one at that.

It was the cover that lured me in. But after reading this bone-chilling, paranormal suspense thriller. Yes, I said a paranormal suspense thriller. Abbie Roads has put together one energetic book that would start her new series Fatal Truth on a high note.

Cain Killion knew that he might be one step away from being a serial killer just like his father. His only saving grace is he uses his gift with blood to take the edge off. Until one crime scene became all too familiar. With a haunting symbol linking the crime to his past and only one person would know what it means.

Some say that a person could take a lot before they go mentally insane. And what Mercy Ledger went through…witnessing her family being murder by the hands of Cai’s father should have done it. But Mercy was a resilient person. But when Cain and Mercy past comes back to haunt them will it kill them or drive both over the deep end.

I’ve read only two other books by Abbie Road and those where her Fatal Dreams Series, I must say that Saving Mercy tops either one of those. The plotline flows flawlessly without missing a beat.

I would recommend this book, it certainly had it all. I wouldn’t recommend it as a light reading material before bed.

Out of darkness and danger…

You can’t hide your secrets from Lathan Montgomery—he can read your darkest memories. And while his special abilities are invaluable in the FBI’s hunt for a serial killer, he has no way to avoid the pain that brings him. Until he is drawn to courageous, down-on-her-luck Evanee Brown and finds himself able to offer her something he’s never offered another human being: himself.

Dawns a unique and powerful love

Nightmares are nothing new to Evanee Brown. But once she meets Lathan, they plummet into the realm of the macabre. Murder victims are reaching from beyond the grave to give Evanee evidence that could help Lathan bring a terrifying killer to justice. Together, they could forge an indomitable partnership to thwart violence, abuse, and death—if they survive the forces that seek to tear them apart.

There might be a mix bag on who likes the book or who could have done without. But this reviewer is in the category of the ones who likes the book.

Hunt the Dawn written by Abbie Roads has taken the phrase “I See Dead People” to a whole new level. In the second installment in her Fatal Dream series, we’re introduced to two special people who are connect by more than sharing the same zip code, by more than the attraction they have for each other. They are connected by their ability to apprehend a Serial Killer.  With Lathan ability to receive images by smell and Evanee’s gift to bring things back from the dream world. These two make up a heck of a team.

The phrase that came to mind after completing this book was “When they met it was Murder”. Yes, I was a big fan of Heart to Heart. When Lathan is out to stop a serial killer, he didn’t have any time to find love, especially being the way he was. But one night on his way home, he witnesses a woman being harassed, there was something special about the woman that he rushed to her assistance, and everything from there changed for him and especially for Evanee.

 Evanee had a terrible childhood. A childhood that no child of five should have endured. Now a woman, she still putting up with the same harassment. Until one day a hero intervened and in Evanee’s eyes no matter how different Lathan was, he would always be her champion.

I loved this book better than Race The Darness. I don’t know…it was just something about these two that drew me in. Maybe it was the prejudices that these two had to face and overcome. Whatever, the case maybe this book is a must read.

  Note: Even though this is book #2 in the Fatal Dream Series, Hunt the Dawn can be read as a stand-alone.

Race the Darkness is the first book in the Fatal Dreams series penned by Abbie Roads. This would be my first but not my last book by Abbie Roads, because I must as a reader and a review must finish what I started. Plus, this book was phenomenal.

If you can grab my attention from chapter one than I am all in to finishing the book. But with Race the Darkness I wasn’t expecting this phenomenal writing

With just one accident Xander Stone life was change. Now he has the ability to hear people thoughts, not but touch he just has to be in the vicinity of the person(s), Maybe that is why when there is a witness that the police want to crack, they call in Xander.

Trying to find his relief in the bottle and even that doesn’t restrain the voice from coming through speaking just two words “HELP ME”.

Isleen Walker long since given up hope of being rescued. Being tortured by a zealot nut case, she too seeks peace, and too is unable to find it. Until one day her hero finally arrived.

With Isleen found Xander assumed that the voice shall haunt him know more. But he learns that the danger to Isleen is not yet over and that a greater force is involved.

Race the Darkness, a dark paranormal thriller that sets this series up pretty nicely that it has this reviewer saying “Is the next book out yet”
