#CQWeek2017: Chest of Bone (Afterworld Chronicles, #1) by @vickistiefel #Giveaway #BookReview @CuriosityQuills

Welcome to this year's #CQWeek were so excited to share these titles with you!  We loved this title and the story was so good!  Check it out and don't forget to enter the giveaway and come back later for more! 

 
As magical and mundane worlds entwine, empath and unawakened Mage Clea Reese must team up with the secretive James Larrimer to hunt her mentor’s killer and stop the forces of corruption from obtaining the Chest of Bone, the ultimate source of otherworldly power.

Larrimer is a predator who stalks endangered-animal traders. Or so it appears. And none are prepared for the fusion of Clea's and Larrimer's song, a wild resonance which can bind one to the other.

Powerful forces align against them, and only Clea, the singular Key, and Larrimer stand between these malignant entities and their ruthless quest.
 





My new paranormal romantic suspense series, The Afterworld Chronicles, launches with Chest of Bone, (February 2017 Curiosity Quills Press). My mystery/thrillers-Body Parts, The Dead Stone, The Bone Man, and The Grief Shop, a Daphne du Maurier winner-feature homicide counselor Tally Whyte and are soon to be ebooks. I co-wrote (with Lisa Souza) 10 Secrets of the LaidBack Knitters. My late husband, William G. Tapply, and I ran The Writers Studio workshops. I grew up in professional theater-the Ivoryton Playhouse-and planned to become an actress. Instead, I've slung hamburgers, managed a scuba shop, and am a professor. I'm a mom to two humans and a furry pack. My passion for scuba diving, fly fishing and knitting pop up in my novels. As do vinho verde and bourbon (not together!) and Maine lobster and chocolate (also not together!). I sing musical comedy scores in the shower, unfortunately not an Equity venue, write daily and teach fiction and modern media writing at Clark University. I'm currently pounding the keys on the series' second novel, Chest of Stone.


Well this one was ok I found myself almost half way though it that I was still pretty confused about what was going on. Dont let the cover fool you this book leans more towards a murder mystery vs. fantasy which is fine but I would have liked to see more from the fantasy side instead of somethings just tossed in there.  Some of the things in this one have been done before which kinda sucked but for the most part it was an interesting story with engaging chracters.  The characters really made this one enjoyable. By the end of this one I felt for the chracters and couldnt put it down. I cant wait to get a hold of book two.
