Did you know that books are routinely released on a Tuesday? That is why I created my Terrific Tuesday posts, so that I can let you all know what is coming out today that is on my radar for a must read! Shadow Rider is releasing today and I will admit that I have not read a Christine Feehan novel in awhile but this is a new series and I can not wait to read it!
The #1 New York Times bestselling “queen of paranormal romance”* is back with a sexy new series starring a Chicago crime family that hides a dark, mystical secret…
While their criminal activity is simply a rumor yet to be proven, no one knows the real truth. The Ferraros are a family of shadow riders capable of manipulating light and dark, an ability Stefano thought ran in his family alone—until now…
With little left to her name, Francesca Cappello has come to Chicago in hopes of a new life. She wasn’t expecting to attract the attention of a man with primal hunger in his eyes, driven to claim her as his to protect and to please. And if he discovers her secret, it could ruin her…

Oh, yes! That sounds really intriguing. Manipulation of light and dark?! Yep, count me in! Here is a tidbit on this author:
Christine Feehan is a #1 New York Times bestselling author multiple times over with her portfolio including over 50 published novels, including five series; Dark Series, Ghostwalker Series, Leopard Series, Drake Sisters Series, & the Sisters of the Heart Series. All five series hit the #1 spot on the New York Times bestselling list as well. Her debut novel Dark Prince received 3 of the 9 Paranormal Excellence Awards in Romantic Literature (PEARL) in 1999. Since then she has been published by various publishing houses including Leisure Books, Pocket Books, and currently is writing for Berkley/Jove.

IN HER WORDS: I’ve been a writer all of my life — it is who I am. I write for myself and always have. The ability to create pictures and emotions with words is such a miracle to me. I read everything; I mean everything! All kinds of books, even encyclopedias. I am fascinated by the written word and I love storytellers. It is a great privilege to be counted one myself.

What does it mean if the gods can be killed? The first novel in an epic new fantasy series for readers of Brent Weeks, Brandon Sanderson, Peter V. Brett, and Scott Lynch.
Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped the gods they call Fhrey, truly a race apart: invincible in battle, masters of magic, and seemingly immortal. But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between men and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now, only a few stand between humankind and annihilation: Raithe, reluctant to embrace his destiny as the God Killer, Suri, a young seer burdened by signs of impending doom, and Persephone, who must overcome personal tragedy to lead her people. The Age of Myth is over; the time of rebellion has begun.

Such a good read! Do not miss out! Here is some information on author Michael J. Sullivan. His bio is actually quite comprehensive and I was only able to include a portion, so I encourage you to click the link on the his website below and get the whole story. Awesome!
My name is Michael J. Sullivan and I’m a full-time novelist. To type those words is kind of surreal, as writing isn’t a career that most can make a living at. I’m eternally grateful to all my readers who have made it possible for me to live a dream I never thought would be possible.
Like many, too many, my road to becoming an author wasn’t an easy one. I wrote in a variety of genres from 1979 to 1994 and after thirteen novels and more than a hundred rejections I quit…vowing never to write creatively again. Well, never turned out to be almost a decade, as I couldn’t suppress the itch any longer. Over those eight years a story had been growing in my head and I decided I would write it on just one condition: that I wouldn’t seek publication.
My plan was to write something just to please myself and to share with a few friends and family. My youngest daughter was struggling with reading (she’s dyslexic), so I wrote a fantasy series with her in mind (Lord of the Rings is what ignited my passion for reading and ultimately writing when I was thirteen). Those books (written from 2002 – 2008) became my debut series, The Riyria Revelations. After reading the third book, my wife insisted my writing “just had to get out there.” I refused because I knew that path led to darkness and despair),so she picked up the gauntlet on my behalf.
