Hello everyone. I’m honored to welcome back my favorite Urban Fantasy author Katie Salidas, with her newest release:

Dark Salvation.

Synopsis:

A gathering storm of violence is on the horizon. Whispered threats of the Acta Sanctorum’s return have the supernatural world abuzz. Only recently aware of the other world hidden behind our own, Kitara Vanders has barely scratched the surface of what being supernatural truly means. A special woman in her own right, she possesses unique telepathic abilities, gifts that have recently come under the scrutiny of the Acta Sanctorum, a fanatical organization whose mission is to cleanse the world of anything supernatural. Targeted and marked for death, Kitara’s only hope lies with the lethally seductive yet emotionally scarred warrior Nicholas.

Knowing full well the atrocities of which the Acta Sanctorum is capable, Nicholas is all too eager for the battle to begin. Fueled by pain and rage from the loss of his mate, he’s itching for a fight, but one thing stands in his way: Kitara, a beautiful dark-haired woman with unique psychic abilities and an unusual link to the Saints. Despite his resolve to remain focused on his mission, a purely physical relationship binds them together in a way neither of them expected. And when her life hangs in the balance, Nicholas finds his own is teetering on the edge too.

Isn’t that a beautiful cover? I absolutely fell in love with her Immortallis series. Alyssa is a fiery little thing and Lysander is her calm wise hero. The first four books follow Alyssa’s journey as she learns to adjust to life as a vampire, earns her place in the coven, and many new adventures.

This lovely addition is a stand-a-lone companion novella to her Immortallis series and is very special to me. As those who follow Katie’s blog will recall I won her “Become A Character Contest.” She sent me a questionnaire, which I answered, and that’s how Kitara {the love interest in Dark Salvation} was created. I’m very pleased with how things turned out. Katie crafted Kitara exactly as I envisioned her while answering the questions.  It’s uncanny.

Nicholas {the main character} is such a snarky, but adorable character. The way Kitara and Nicholas play off each other is highly amusing and volatile. I chose this excerpt so you could see for yourself.

Excerpt:

“You really don’t care about human life, do you?” Though her heart pounded erratically with fear, there was none in her angry voice.

“Nope.” Nicholas was not about to get into a morality war with this woman. He pulled out the dead man’s wallet and tossed it aside. “Nothing good here.”

“You’re an asshole, you know that?”

He’d been called that by so many people, but somehow hearing her say it struck a chord with him. “I’ve been called worse.” He tried to sound as if he didn’t care, but for some strange reason, he did. He opened his mouth to say something, but found the words escaped him. Humans never understood. Perhaps it was better off she thought him a jerk.

“I can’t believe you. Human life has to hold some meaning.”

“It does. If humans weren’t around, I’d have to eat animals.”

“You’re nothing but a monster, just like Jeremy said.”

That hurt. He had saved her life, and she hated him for it. He turned on her, anger setting his heart pounding. How dare she talk this way to him after he’d saved her? “He would have killed you without a second thought. That’s what the Saints do. They are the real monsters, not me.”

Perhaps it was his suddenly sharp tone, or maybe she realized he was telling the truth; whatever it was, Kitara paused. He heard her take a deep breath. “I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have snapped at you like that. You did save me. I’ve… I’ve just never witnessed a murder.” Her body was still trembling, and her heart thumped so erratically that he wondered if she might pass out. The tang of her fear wafted up to his nose. “You tore that guy’s throat out, in front of me. You killed him. You drank his blood.”

Nicholas attempted to temper the anger in his voice with patience in the hopes of getting her to relax. “Vampires drink blood, sweetheart.”

About kittyb78

Catrina Barton is a licensed Kung-Fu Instructor of the Black Dragon style, and draws on that experience to make her fight scenes both realistic and action packed. She enjoys being surrounded by the stark beauty of mother nature. Whether it's a moon-lit starry sky, or a picnic by a peaceful waterfall cascading from the mountain side. Growing up no matter where she was physically, she always had at least one book in her hands and spent every free moment lost in a book. It's only natural that as she grew up, her passion for reading grew into an even stronger passion for writing, especially Young Adult Paranormal Romances. She is a proud member of many writing and marketing groups, and an active participant at Critique Circle and several other crit groups. Favorite personal quote: "An author cannot grow without both constructive criticism and encouragement."
