Viper's Creed Blog Tour Stop!



Blurb for Viper’s Creed:
Sora is having visions. Strange, terrifying visions brought on by her Cat's Eye necklace, an ancient and magical device. Spurred to action, she leaves her mother's cabin to find Crash, the mysterious assassin who once changed her life. She is certain that together, they can discover what the necklace is trying to tell her.

Crash is still on the run from the dark sorcerer, Volcrian, but now a plague is spreading across the land. Volcrian's quest for vengeance has awakened something far more evil than himself; a force that could destroy the entire kingdom. Together, he and Sora must harness the power of the Cat's Eye and kill the sorcerer before it's too late....

Review:

Before being asked to be a part of this blog tour, I had never heard of T.L. Schreffler, so I had no idea what I was truly missing out on.  Yea, I was seriously missing out on A LOT!

I read the first book in the Cat’s Eye series, Sora’s Quest, and I knew then that there was no turning back for me.  No, there’s not love story, which is something that is usually a big draw for me, but there was just something about the chemistry between Sora and Crash that had me begging...literally begging!...for there to be more between them. But alas, I was not granted that piece of mind by the end of Sora’s Quest.  But this isn’t about Sora’s Quest. 

This is about Viper’s Creed, book 2 in the Cat’s Eye series.  I’m not going to rehash the entire story for you since there is a book blurb up top for you to chew on.  I will simply state that I will now be stalking (in a good way!) T.L. Schreffler’s page on Facebook to find out when I can get my hands on book 3...just saying...

Viper’s Creed was an action packed story, filled with more information on the many races that have nearly been wiped out. (That was definitely one thing that I wanted to know more about)  There are dirty little secrets that Crash must decide whether or not to share with Sora...and he must decide what, exactly, he has been feeling for Sora.  Their relationship has blossomed into more than simple trust...and it made me quite anxious the whole time I was reading it!

I have become a super geek, absolutely falling in love with fantasy books, so this series definitely won my heart.  I have to admit, I also have a very big book crush on Crash, no matter his faults.  I think it’s the strong, silent type that always gets me. 

The best part of this whole series is the imagination and creativity that went into building this world that they live in.  The different races, the mythology that surrounds them, and the world itself are so well done that you will question whether or not this is real...I questioned my own sanity once, or twice, while reading.  I fell into this world, head first, and I feel like it is now a second home.  If you are looking for a fast paced, exciting, and amazing read, you should definitely check out this series.  You won’t be disappointed...AT ALL! Two thumbs WAY up!!

"T. L. Shreffler definitely has a writing style that I love to read and the ability to draw me into her world with an ease that I don’t find often. She manages to find the balance that so many other writers don’t achieve in their work, scenes were neither over written nor understated and I enjoyed every page. I was eager to reach the end to learn the outcome but at the same time I was sad for the story to be over." - Lindsay and Jane's Views and Reviews
