#102: The Zombie Always Knocks Twice - E. Van Lowe (With Giveaway)

Hollywood, California, is known for swimming pools,
movie stars…and now the risen dead.
Hollywood can be a difficult place to grow up, especially if you’re Kristine Golden, a fifteen-year-old necromancer with a sworn duty to lay the risen dead back to rest and no desire to be in the movie business.
When handsome deadie Alex Romero swaggers into her life, Kris must keep her promise, despite her growing feelings for him. If that’s not enough to give a girl a headache, a murderous zombie comes knocking at Kris’s door, rocking her world and threatening her family.
Can Kris solve the mystery of the rampaging zombie before someone else winds up dead? Or will the walking dead take over Hollywood and turn it into…Hollyweird?

My Review for Boyfriend From Hell
My Review for Earth Angel

My Review for Never Slow Dance with a Zombie will be featured next month at VVB32 Reads Blog!

MY OPINION:
I am a fan of E.'s books and this is no exception. It was a very fun read, and fitting for the season.
I love a good zombie story too. This definitely fit that bill. I will say, there were moments I thought were kinda gross, or graphic, but not so out-of-hand that teens can't read it. It is definitely one the kids will enjoy too!

Romwe: White and Green Striped Knitted Jumper

Romwe was established in the 2009’s Christmas night. Just within half a year, Romwe has changed from a simple vintage specialty shop into a pint-sized platform of high-street fashion.
 White and green jumper featuring an over-sized shape,round neck with drawstring, bat-wing short sleeves and black and white stripes. 

MY OPINION:
I received the jumper in a plastic garment bag with the Romwe logo, and was happy about that. I knew as soon as I pulled it out, it would look great with a pair of jeggings and my tawny brown Peter Pan boots. 
I was right! I felt great wearing it on a cool Autumn day. It was just the right amount of fabric for the day. The fabric, even though it's a cotton/polyester blend, was so soft against my skin. The only thing that bothered me was the tag, so I removed it. Sorry. I really loved the drawstring back though. It happened to match my tote bag, that accompanied my outfit to the mall. I felt great in the jumper and highly recommend Romwe as a source for your fashions!

Dollop Gourmet Ultimate Dude Frosting

Are you a Food Network watcher? Did you watch cupcake wars? Is the name, Dollop, familiar yet? Heather Shaffer from Dollop Gourmet Cupcake Creations was a winner on that show.

Dollop is in the Rochester, N.Y.  area. It features a cupcake bar that offers you a nearly endless variety of cupcake combinations. They also create cupcakes for special occasions.

They also created their own line of frosting. Made from buttercream, the frosting spread is the perfect accompaniment to any snack food, from apples, pretzels, graham crackers, cupcakes, to bacon. Yeah, bacon!!  Enjoy it anywhere, any time! It's that convenient!! Visit the frosting spread online shop.
Visit the website for more information.

Heather Shaffer is the mastermind behind Dollop Gourmet Cupcake Creations.
She is also a blogger, and you can read it at Heather's Cupcakes. She's also sending some tweets on Twitter.








MY OPINION:
I watch the Food Network all the time, so when approached by Heather to review, I was excited and honored. I still am too. So thank you Heather.
I got two packages of Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Frosting.
I decided to make cupcakes, since they are a household favorite... and I'll be honest, I was nervous to step outside the box with cookies or something else, and that was stupid, but that will come in a minute.....
Anyway, I made cupcakes...
Now what I think is the only downside, and please Heather don't shoot me, is the term "spread". Dollop made much more sense to me after using the frosting "spread". I actually ruined two cupcakes trying to spread it, and two packages, if spread, would not have been enough frosting for one dozen. With that said, I mentioned I preferred the term Dollop, which is also it's name... and that's what I found it to be, a dollop frosting. It's more of a decorating frosting than a spreadable one. Here is how mine turned out, dolloped.
Pretty, right?!
I know it looks like not much frosting, but this frosting packs a punch. That tiny bit went a long way, and the flavor was very good and right on the money! I can definitely see why this lady won. She is not only inventive, creative, smart, but has a wicked sense for trying something new. I can't wait to try some of this stuff on cookies. I'm not ready to go for bacon, but am willing to step out of the box now!
Thanks again for a fantastic product!

Giveaway: American Dervish - Ayad Akhtar

 Paperback cover
Audiobook cover
Hayat Shah is a young American in love for the first time. His normal life of school, baseball, and video games had previously been distinguished only by his Pakistani heritage and by the frequent chill between his parents, who fight over things he is too young to understand. Then Mina arrives, and everything changes.
Mina is Hayat's mother's oldest friend from Pakistan. She is independent, beautiful and intelligent, and arrives on the Shah's doorstep when her disastrous marriage in Pakistan disintegrates. Even Hayat's skeptical father can't deny the liveliness and happiness that accompanies Mina into their home. Her deep spirituality brings the family's Muslim faith to life in a way that resonates with Hayat as nothing has before. Studying the Quran by Mina's side and basking in the glow of her attention, he feels an entirely new purpose mingled with a growing infatuation for his teacher.
When Mina meets and begins dating a man, Hayat is confused by his feelings of betrayal. His growing passions, both spiritual and romantic, force him to question all that he has come to believe is true. Just as Mina finds happiness, Hayat is compelled to act -- with devastating consequences for all those he loves most.
American Dervish is a brilliantly written, nuanced, and emotionally forceful look inside the interplay of religion and modern life. Ayad Akhtar was raised in the Midwest himself, and through Hayat Shah he shows readers vividly the powerful forces at work on young men and women growing up Muslim in America. This is an intimate, personal first novel that will stay with readers long after they turn the last page.

  • Paperback: 400 pages
  • Publisher: Granet Publishing Inc. (November 1, 2011)
  • ISBN-13: 978-0968063156
  • AMAZON US

  • AUTHOR BIOS:
     Sisters Janet and Greta Podleski are the authors of three #1 bestselling cookbooks: Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates and Eat, Shrink & Be Merry! The fun-filled books are best known for their unique combination of great-tasting, healthy recipes, useful nutrition tips and corny humor, though not even the books biggest fans found the jokes as funny as Janet and Greta did themselves.
    Over the years, the dynamic duo has somehow found time to host a popular cooking show on Food Network Canada, develop a line of healthy prepared foods, produce monthly columns for Reader s Digest and Taste of Home magazines and create a series of grEATing cards for Hallmark. Clearly, their personal lives border on pathetic.
    The sisters inspirational, self-publishing success story and mouthwatering recipes have been featured in countless newspapers and magazines, and on hundreds of North American TV broadcasts, including The Today Show, CNN, Canada AM and QVC. Much to their dismay, Janet and Greta never managed to get on Oprah, but they once camped for hours outside her Chicago apartment building, hoping for a chance to meet her. Hey, it was worth a try! (Darn security officers!)
    Despite being chosen as two of Canada s Top 40 Under 40 (just recently wink!) and being featured in People magazine (their mom loved that!), their biggest thrill was being the subject of a Trivial Pursuit question. Embarrassingly, Janet got the answer wrong. 


    MY OPINION:
    I've seen the show, Eat, Shrink and be Merry, and was nervous to actually try this cookbook. Almost everything I saw them make on that show, which was adaptions of well-known dishes with cheaper and easier products and methods, didn't bode well with me. I prefer fresh, even locally grown or produced foods, and tend to steer clear of processed foods. Where their recipes always call for processed foods.
    I gave it a go anyway, and went through the cookbook to find a recipe I thought was the least processed.

    Lanky Noodle Dandy
    While the hubby thought it was alright, I didn't even finish it. I love noodles, egg or otherwise, love chicken, love mushrooms and peas, and really found this dish to be basically a chicken stroganoff. Unfortunately, like I said before, I prefer fresh peas, not frozen or can, even the roasted red peppers they called for came from the pickle aisle... so I was not thrilled.... and it came across in the flavors for me. Sure, someone who is just invited to the table would enjoy the meal, but someone with a good palette and a love of food will definitely wonder if this is pre-packaged. 
    Yeah, so you can probably guess I won't be recommending this book. I'd be surprised if I can give it away after people hear what I got to say or read my review, but I aim to try.

    #100: The Secret Life of Copernicus H. Stringfellow - Lorin Barber

    Copernicus H. Stringfellow, a.k.a. Nick, is not your run-of-the-mill genius. His mind is so powerful it can stop a speeding automobile or stem internal bleeding. As Nick goes about quietly doing good, he discovers that his powers are greatly enhanced by the nutrients present in Twinkies. Follow Nick on his amazing adventures in this humorous and exciting action-packed book for all ages.
    • Paperback: 304 pages
    • Publisher: Cedar Fort, Inc. (March 13, 2012)
    • ISBN: 9781599559292
    • AMAZON US

    MY OPINION: 
    This is one of the most fun books I have ever had the pleasure of reading.
    It had action, mystery, comedy, drama and even romance. I really loved "Nick", his quirks and straight answers always made me laugh. Not everyone enjoys that "dry humor" or sarcasm, but I'm big for it.
    Although the above description says it's a book for all ages, I tend to disagree. There is things in it I would not want small ones reading or be read to, such as kidnapping. I don't think young people would appreciate the content or jokes either, so I would say it's an adult book. But one I thoroughly enjoyed!

    "Frank, I need to talk to you."
    "Why?"

    "Huh? You're concerned for me?" Frank asked.
    "Yeah, Frank. We gotta talk. Sit down." Nick pulled up a wheeled stool for himself and pushed one across the room to Frank.

    #99: Cooking Season by Season


    Seasonality is now more important than ever for foodies and home cooks and this new book is both an exhaustive recipe resource and an authoritative produce guide. With 1000 recipes organized by season, and "Season's Best" features highlighting which produce tastes amazing right now and how to make the most of it, Cooking Season by Season is an essential resource for being in touch with the flavors of the season.
    • Features over 750 full colour images
    • Includes Recipe Choosers for each chapter listing all the dishes that can be cooked for each seasonal ingredient
    MY OPINION:
    When I saw this book, I knew I had to get it. I love knowing what foods are in season and best to be consumed. With my love for cooking, I was eager, and chose two recipes.
     First main course. Of course.
    Tomato, Bean and Zucchini Stew
    I don't eat vegetarian often. I'm a meat chick. Well, you should know that by my Beef Ambassadorship.... anyways, I enjoyed this dish. The beans filled me up the way meat does, and the best part is, being a diabetic beans are really good for me. (They're high in fiber.) Plus, I'm a bit of a zucchini-virgin... I mean, I've had it, but never really cooked it before... so didn't know what to expect. Was really friggin' good!  
    Best part is, the whole house smelled so good for hours afterwards. (Seriously, it's 3 hours past and it still smells amazing in here.) 
    So now onto the second dish I tackled. Dessert.
    Apple and Blackberry Brown Betty
    OMG!! This was divine!!!
    I can't have tons of sugar and this only had a couple teaspoons in the whole thing. It was sweetened naturally with the fruit and ice cream. It was so good! It hit the spot after that main dish. And it's also one I think I will make again and again.
    I look forward to cooking some more out of this book. I definitely look forward to checking out each season as it comes, and mark my words, I will be cooking seasonally from it!

    Get to Know Author Jen Carter

    Hi readers!
    Today I bring you a special treat. An interview with author, Jen Carter, and we talk about her book, Chasing Paris.
    So give her a warm welcome.
    Hi Jen!
    Thanks for visiting the blog today. Why don't you tell us about your book.
    My book is called Chasing Paris. It’s the story of Amy Winthrow, a young woman who is shocked when her grandmother dies—not because Elizabeth Hathaway’s death is unexpected but because her existence had always been hidden. Ever-inquisitive and prone to letting her imagination get the best of her, Amy embarks upon a journey with an unlikely friend to unravel the mysteries of the elusive Lizzie Hathaway. As she follows the trail of broken dreams and promises of her grandmother’s life, Amy finds herself on a path of accidental self-discovery—a path that she chases all the way to Paris where Lizzie’s story ends and Amy’s begins.

    Who or what inspires your writing?
    Writing is a way to engage our imaginations the way we did as children. It’s such fun to create characters, get in their heads, and try to figure out what they’d do or say in different situations. The thought of playing make-believe as an adult is what keeps me writing. Imagining what the characters will do next keeps me inspired.

    When did you know you would be a writer?
    In eleventh grade, I had an English teacher who told me that I had something to say. I had to work on my grammar, yes, but she could see past that. I had always liked writing, but that was the first time anyone outside my family recognized me for it. That motivated me to learn more and try harder.

     
    How long did it take you to write your first novel?
    I started Chasing Paris when I was in college—13 years ago. I put it on the back burner after college, went to graduate school, did some other writing, got married, and had two children. When my girls were babies, I went back to writing it. There were times when I was rocking an infant in a bouncy chair with my foot, holding a sleeping toddler in my lap, and typing on my laptop with one free hand. I was a sight! About three years after that, it was finally done.

     
    What is the hardest part of writing for you?
    The hardest part is knowing when to stop. I could revise a paragraph one hundred times and still find myself dreaming up different ways to present the idea. My husband sometimes says to me, “Stop! You’re done! No more changes allowed!”

     
    Do you have any writing rituals?
    This may sound silly, but the house has to be cleaned before I can really write. If it’s not clean, I find my mind wandering back to the dirty dishes in the sink and the unswept floor. Once the house is clean, I like to sit down with a cup of chai and play Dave Matthews on Pandora. Then I can really concentrate.

     
    Have you written any thing else?
    ChasingParis is my first piece of long fiction. I am currently working on my second book and hope to have that completed in summer of 2013. 

     
    Any advice to aspiring writers?
    Write every day. Make a schedule. Set goals. Then reward yourself once you reach those goals. A pedicure is my favorite treat.

    Who are your favorite Authors?
    Isabel Allende, Geoffrey Chaucer, John Steinbeck, Ovid, J.K. Rowling, Jan Karon, Ernest Hemingway. I feel as thought I’ve learned so much about the human spirit through their writings.

     
    What are your favorite books, or which book has impacted you the most?
    John Steinbeck’s East of Eden was the first book I read that left a deep impression on me. I loved the description, the characters, and the plot. I loved it all! It was the first time I really understood how beautiful language can create a connection between readers and characters. 

     
    What are you currently reading?
    Rick Riordan’s Heroes of Olympus: The Demigod Diaries. I love it!

    How do readers find out more about you?
    Check out www.chasingparis.com. You could also send me an email at chasingparis@hotmail.com. I’d love to hear from readers!


    Jen Carter Bio
    Jen teaches English in higher education and is writing her second book, which will be released in the summer of 2013. She is happily married and resides with her beautiful family and Golden Retriever in the San Diego area.

    Author Promo Stop: Sean Cairns

    Born in London, but grew up in Cyprus, Germany, Wales and Scotland as an army brat, I was diagnosed with the travel and writing bugs very early in life.
    Writing, reading and traveling are pretty much my main passions in life, but I also love outdoor sports too from Rugby and Hiking to Tennis and Boxing.
    I'm writing another few books right now, one is about a young man in a dead end job and life who discovers that he has a terminal illness so decides to withdraw all of his savings from the bank and starts doing all the things that he's always wanted to do, but was restricted by the rules and regulations that society feeds into us from birth.
    The other book is about my recent four month awesome back packing adventure through Eastern Europe last year, from Estonia to Sarajevo. I'm also looking forward to more traveling and writing adventures in the near future. I also try and treat each day like it were my last as you miss one hundred percent of the shots you don't take in life.

    It's Nineteen ninety one and eleven year old Paul and his family have just moved to the climatic sunshine paradise island of Cyprus.
    On Paul's first day at school he becomes completely spellbound by the pretty tomboy Sarah. Though not only because of her cute and athletic good looks. But also because of her rough and tough, jagged edged ways and her no nonsense approach to handling school bully Michael.
    This incident triggers off a series of exciting and dramatic events that brings the homely, well rounded Paul and the troubled young Sarah's worlds colliding together. The two then begin an unusual and exciting yet somewhat tragic friendship, which will stay with them for the rest of their lives, as they both battle to confront their inner most fears and demons.
    From the mystery of Sarah's Mother's disappearance to the trials and tribulations of growing up on the move with army parents. Sarah's domestic abuse issues living in a broken home with her alcoholic father to dealing with Paul's school bullying from the borderline psychotic Michael.
    There are Summertime adventures to be had, gorgeous Cypriot beaches and Bondoo valley wastelands to explore. To haunted houses, dark hidden caves and first teen romances. All the while dealing with that delicate yet rough transition into becoming a teenager.
    But how long can these summertime adventures last when children are forced to grow up so fast in an ever changing world, especially when unforeseen tragedies are just around the corner... Sarah Smiles is an adventurous, romantic tale for all adults, and young adults alike to enjoy.

     'A tragic tale of  a doomed romance like no other.'
    Jason is a tormented soul and small town, womanizing  gangster. Fed up with his unfulfilled life he double crosses his only friend and does a runner with a suitcase full of drug money, disappearing into the heart of the gorgeous Scottish highlands to lay low in a secluded cottage before starting a fresh.
    On his second day of hiding Jason discovers the mysterious body of a young and hauntingly beautiful woman lying unconscious at the bottom of a nearby hill. The woman though has no memory of who she is or how she even ended up there. So Jason carries the beauty back to his cottage and tenderly nurses her back to health. As the days pass, Jason gradually gains the woman's trust and friendship by confiding to her his own past sins and infidelities. Deep and personal confessions he has never told anyone before, especially a woman. Could our hero finally be falling in love for the first time in his selfish life?
    Eventually Jason coaxes and pushes the woman into unraveling her own eerily forgotten past and tormenting mad nightmare visions of terror... But doing so without the hindsight of the chilling, terrifying and sickening acts of horror which are about to be unleashed.

    My Review for Sleeping Beauty Vampire Slayer

    MY OPINION:
    I read Sleeping Beauty Vampire Slayer and loved it, so I had high hopes for this one. Cinderella is one of my favorite fairytales after all.
    It didn't disappoint either.
    I love the darker retelling of this story, where Cinderella is still a servant girl, but in the end is so much more strong and powerful. It's her ninja and magic skills that empower her though, and in an exciting way.
    I like that this series is those books with alternate endings. There are eight possibilities, though you always start and finish the book the same way. I still can't wait to take a different approach next time.

    5/5

    Recommend? Yes.

    Opal Cover Reveal - USA Today Bestselling Author Jennifer Armentrout

    No one is like Daemon Black.
    When he set out to prove his feelings for me, he wasn’t fooling around. Doubting him isn’t something I’ll do again, and now that we’ve made it through the rough patches, well... There’s a lot of spontaneous combustion going on.
    But even he can’t protect his family from the danger of trying to free those they love.
    After everything, I’m no longer the same Katy. I’m different... And I’m not sure what that will mean in the end. When each step we take in discovering the truth puts us in the path of the secret organization responsible for torturing and testing hybrids, the more I realize there is no end to what I’m capable of. The death of someone close still lingers, help comes from the most unlikely source, and friends will become the deadliest of enemies, but we won’t turn back. Even if the outcome will shatter our worlds forever.
    Together we’re stronger... and they know it.

    I did mind. I was starving and I'd only made enough for me. But my big sister was home for the first time in two years. I was happy to spend some time with her, even if it meant sharing my tiny dinner. "Mmm, good."


    Promo Stop: I've Been Deader - Adam Sifre

    Being a zombie is no picnic and it's one hell of a handicap in the romance department when you fall in love with a 'breather':
    Aleta is a breather with short blonde hair and brown eyes - two of them! - and the whitest smile Fred has ever seen. Every day at a certain time she sits at her window, and every day he stands in the rubble across the street among a crowd of zombies waiting to break through the fence and eat her.
    'You are beautiful, like an angel', he thinks, but all he can moan is, “Braaaiiinss."
    Still, as zombies go, Fred's quite a catch. Underneath all the gangrene and rot, Fred is different. This girl will probably turn out to be yet another dead end, an infatuation, someone whose image he cannot get out of his mind and whose taste he cannot get out of his mouth, but the heart wants what the heart wants.
    For breathers, it is always only a matter of time, however beautiful they are and whatever the government is assuring people.
    Which makes Fred sad because he has a beautiful 11 year old son called Timmy, and Timmy may still be alive.

    Excerpt Chapter I
    Commute

    Fred's ruined face stared back at him from a fractured, mold spotted mirror. The remains of breakfast pooled around his feet and a pair of lace panties clung to his shoe, glued there by God knew what.

    Bits of flesh were stuck between his yellow teeth, along with the sodden remains of a hand-wash-only label. There was no denying that he'd seen better days.

    Being a zombie is no picnic.

    Compelled to pause and take stock of himself, he wiped his gore stained hands on a filthy shirt, unsure if he was cleaning the hands or the shirt. His right eye looked like a crushed egg yolk and his left leg was broken in two places. A large splinter of bone poked through the nskin above his thigh, fine dark lines etched across the surface like a bad piece of scrimshaw. The open wound on his neck had started leaking again, but at least the fluid was mostly clear now.

    No use dwelling on negatives. Time to get to work. He turned away from his reflection, and limped out of the men's room of the Vince Lombardi rest area.

    An overly bright morning sun assaulted him as he stepped outside.

    Fred gave a mental wince, wishing yet again that he could blink.

    Sunlight had no adverse effect on the undead, but he had never been a morning person. Rain or shine, today he had to shamble over to Terminal C of Newark Airport, where eight breathers were making their last stand. Zombies were lone hunters and rarely worked together.

    Every so often, however, a kind of collective broadcast signal went out over the undead grapevine, announcing the newest brain buffet - in a shopping mall, a church, or an airport - with predictable and satisfying results.

    Dozens were already making their way down the New Jersey turnpike. By their mindless, movie-slow pace, he knew they hadn't fed.

    Zombies weren't Jesse Owens on the best of days, but they tended to move a lot faster with a little brain in the old furnace.
    If Fred could breathe, he would have sighed. There'd be hundreds of zombies, all ready to fight over eight brains and assorted bits. The breathers would probably take out ten to twenty percent of the attacking hoard before being overwhelmed. That left about ten zombies per breather. With luck, by the time he got there he would still be the brainiac of the pack.

    Having his wits about him gave a zombie an edge in the hunt. The effects of the virus or whatever it was that put the mojo in their mortified flesh varied from corpse to corpse. Most became textbook droolie ghoulies, but some could reason and even remember who they were as breathers. So far Fred hadn't come across any other thinkers, but he doubted he was the only one.

    By mid-afternoon he found himself enjoying his walk down the turnpike. Most of the fires had burned themselves out and although the air still reeked of burning gasoline, the skies were more or less smoke-free. He might be a walking corpse, but he appreciated a warm spring day like this one. He pulled his lips up in what should have been a grin.

    Death, ruin and destruction improved the New Jersey Turnpike.

    Not that there wasn't a black lining to be found around Fred's own little rainbow of a life. Most of the zombies were a few hundred yardsdown the road, but two lesser undead doggedly tagged alongside of him, putting a bit of a damper on things. The virus left them as nothing more than … well, nothing more than zombies. They were about as interesting as slugs and moaned so much that, were Fred alive, he'd be sporting a hell of a migraine.

    All in all, however, the day was turning out quite well. He almost convinced himself being undead wasn't so bad. Sure, it was bad luck that he was forty-five years old with a rather large potbelly when he had been bitten by that damned clerk. Being cursed to wander the earth in search of brains was bad enough, but why couldn't it have happened when he was twenty years younger and thirty pounds lighter?

    He was imagining wandering the earth in search of fresh brains as a slimmer, sleeker and younger Fred, when the head of the zombie on his left exploded.

    Shit!

    Promo Stop: Death Is A Bitch - Cate Masters (With Excerpt & Giveaway)

    Eternity can suck when it’s all work, work, work. Death harvests souls even when they stack up faster than pancakes in an all-you-can-eat-buffet. No wonder she can’t shed the Grim Reaper rep.
    As the patron angel of death and dying, Azrael works closely with Death but is dying for true intimacy. She’s the only immortal who’s ever aroused such powerful emotions in him. One taste of her leaves him needing her like humans need air and food, but will a demon’s lies leave a bad taste?
    No one escapes Death – except King Sisyphus. Twice. With the help of Damien the demon, Sisyphus tries again, and she’s determined to have justice. Some say Death’s a bitch, but only when she has to be. But will the price of justice be a broken heart?

    EXCERPT
    Death stepped from the shadowy curtain of night along a deserted stretch of road toward the mangled hunk of cherry-red metal that used to be a sweet Z240 sports car. Stardust glinted in the black hair that dipped to her waist.
    She kept a safe distance from the wreck. Inside, a thirtyish man slumped behind the wheel, the air bag deflating away from his near-lifeless body. Blood oozed from a nasty gash to his head. Should have worn his seat belt. Too late for life lessons, though. Those weren’t her expertise anyway. Just the opposite.
    Leaves crackled in the underbrush beyond the nearby trees. Death gripped the silver charm bracelet on her wrist, her senses on high alert. Her finger poised near the hidden latch, ready to release a stream of lightning.
    A deer. It stilled, its wide eyes fixed on her.
    Seeing nothing else, she continued with a modicum of caution. Taking souls didn’t exactly make her popular, and after so many millennia, she should’ve been used to it. The bad jokes. The Halloween parodies. A scythe? Please. She’d never used cheap props. Only the finest weaponry. No mortal ever suspected the intricately designed baubles adorning her bracelet were anything more than ornamental.
    Moonlight gleamed off the curves of the sports car, and she ran a gilded nail along its hood. She wouldn’t mind taking one of these babies for a spin. In its former condition, of course, before this guy took the curve too fast and wrapped it around a tree. Humans always rushed everywhere, sometimes straight into her arms.
    The man’s moan signaled she had no need for weapons. This one would give her no trouble. She fingered his blond hair, matted with blood. What a shame. So young, and so handsome. He’d leave at least one lover grieving, no doubt.
    His eyes fluttered open. When he looked up, recognition intensified the flicker of life in his eyes.
    She needed no introduction. They always knew her, unmistakable in the glimmering black filament gown, its folds revealing a glimpse into infinity.
    The stilettos usually earned a second glance, the four-inch heels glistening like fool’s gold. The butterfly tattoo spanning her upper arm likewise drew curious looks, which inevitably changed to horror when the souls recognized the face imprinted within that colorful ink: their own.
