My Review

This is EXCEPTIONAL!

Wunder reunites with her long-thought-of-dead mother in this second book of Wunder Series. In this sequel, we see an even more badass Wunder and Pete as they battle the living dead in an interesting contrast of sweet romance and flawless fighting skills, though with less sexy scenes. Cool as ever, Tank has revealed a vulnerable side to his personality and it just adds to his awesomeness. A new character has been introduced and, in the short span of this fast read, she has already wormed her way into my heart. I love how this series just keeps on improving and impressing me. I highly recommend zombie fans to read this book. This is not a standalone though, so please read Wunder: The Approach first.

I was gifted a copy of this book by the author for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review—all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Posted on

It is finally LIVE!!!

AR Von

Blurb:

When dreams haunt you in the most delicious ways and fate pulls you into destiny’s path, what can be done other than to accept and submit to it.

Can Iria truly get what she’s always dreamed of or will it always just remain a memory? Being a rare creature such as her with exceptional beauty and rarity of existence should be enough. Though, all she wants is her desire, her destiny… To be with a man—one man.

Are these dreams she’s having real? Could she really take on human form and become a Lady to be with the man she craves?

Dezso discovers a magical creature—a being of incredible light and peace. He is drawn to it again and again, and his feelings grow with every encounter. He carries a dark secret that he wishes never existed. The only thing that truly brings light upon his existence is the beauty that warms his heart but seems to only exist in his head—with dreams and visions of a magical woman, full of heartwarming light.

Will he ever know true love and happiness? Will he ever be able to lighten the weight and share his dark secret with another…?

Darkness is growing stronger, weakening the light and killing off what makes the world a beautiful place to live in. Enter a world of fantasy and dreams, passions and temptations. A world where dragons, unicorns, magic and mermaids really do exist. A world where love WILL conquer all!

EXCERPT:

Tethys smiles and briefly closes her eyes, looking as if she’s absorbing my words or feelings then lightly touches my snout and speak in Latin. I’ve never spoken it before, yet I understand most of what she is saying. I believe the spell Dezso cast earlier has passed on his knowledge of the language to me and I am thankful for the understanding.

She looks up to the sky while still holding my snout and says, “Victoria concordia crescit, vinculum iuris.”—Victory through harmony the chain of law.

The sky suddenly lets loose with a roar of thunder and a flash of lightning, causing my heart to beat even quicker. I do not understand the next words she speaks. It sounds like a different language. She takes a pause to breath deep and looks me in the eyes and says, “Venistire mane bisdonec denuo completus sis”—from whence you came, you shall remain, until you are complete again.

I am suddenly pulled from beneath her palms and raised up above the water as if someone is carrying me. Then, I quickly fall into the water which is alight with all colors of the spectrum. I’m pulled down to depths I did not believe existed here. Deeper and deeper. The light gets brighter. I must close my eyes for it hurts so badly. This light. It’s almost like the strongest fires beyond ones imagination. It burns me to my deepest depths and twists my insides to a point I can no longer draw breath. This is death. I am dying.

The pain decreases and the light dims. I find myself chained as if a prisoner against a rough rock wall. Cuffed at wrist and ankle. I am now in human form once again. My wish has been granted!

I smile briefly than I look upon my limbs and wiggle the digits only to feel as if I am being watched very closely. I glance around but only see a few inches in front of my face. Nothing beyond that…I tug on the bindings to see if I could get loose. They will not budge. Remembering I have a voice now and knowledge of language I call out, “Hello? I know you are there. Please tell me why I am held like a prisoner? Did I do wrong? Is this my sacrifice?”

I feel a breeze against my face but still see nothing beyond sand, rocks and some algae. Ghostly fingers press beneath my chin and lift, so I am looking straight ahead. I see a faint outline of a woman.

She has very bright eyes the color of the sun. Golden, orange, so very bright and vivid. The colors seem to swirl, move around and change slightly in brightness. A hand skims the right side of my face.

With a melodic voice, a woman speaks in a whispered breath to me, “No my child you have done no wrong. I apologize for this but I feel it is best this way to apply your binding mark. It is most painful and I do not wish you to injure yourself.”

Then suddenly, her hands and eyes are gone and I miss the soothing, calming touch they gave to me. I’m afraid. So very afraid…

Excerpt: Wunder (#3 Teamwork) by A.R. Von

Wunder Excerpt

So, AR Von posted an excerpt of the third book of the Wunder Series, Teamwork

Source: https://www.facebook.com/Wunderseries

 We arrive at the facility, which I found out is also known as the ‘official’ RIP test center, fairly quickly with the three of us practically running the entire track here. Pete, Tank and I are forced into our first authorized mission as a trio. Apparently there were more than five infected that escaped while I was visiting with my mother. One more to be exact and he’s missing, hiding somewhere in the facility wreaking havoc in every area he goes to. 

According to the security team that’s been watching the cameras like hawks. He’s still on the loose and they’re unable to pin point his location so far because he’s not stood still long enough. They’re all saying he’s the fastest zombie yet and that he seems to disappear into walls at times. That’s fucking freaky!

Coming January 2014

Review: The Approach (Wunder #1) by A.R. Von

Posted on Updated on

The Approach (Wunder #1)

 

 

Blurb

The Wunder Series from Debut Author, A.R. Von

A Semi-Zombie Erotic Treat

Wunder isn’t your average girl, in fact, she isn’t even an average human. In a world ravaged by Zombies, she was born amidst the chaos. Where can a girl like her find the man of her delicious dreams? She has an idea and it leads her to the hottest new club in town, where she finds what’s been missing in her life.

Pete has his own secrets to tell, and when they come together, another story unfolds while the sparks fly.

 

lineMy Review

 

Hot and steamy, Wunder consists of infected zombies and dead zombies and some deliciously sweet moments in between. Action-packed adventure greets the reader with every turn of the page. Exciting and descriptive fight scenes makes the book difficult to put down. Written in the first person perspective, this novelette contains a unique plot and rich narrative. Amusing, cool, and kick-ass characters color every page with their tough and diverse personalities and quirky attitudes. This quick read provides amazing and intriguing insight into the future and the life humans would have twenty five years into the zombie Apocalypse. It’s like High School of the Dead, Resident Evil, and Warm Bodies rolled into one.

I was given an e-book copy by the author. I was not paid for this review. All conclusions are my own responsibility.

Review: Dreamz (Wunder 0.5) by A.R. Von

Posted on Updated on

Dreamz (Wunder #0.5)

Blurb

A World of Turmoil and Yearning

Wunder may have a normal life now…well, as normal as a freak of nature could have. Half zombie while her job is to hunt bloodthirsty creatures to protect the innocent. It’s the dreams that haunt her and they aren’t nightmares. Wunder dreams of a man, a man made just for her. Is he real, can he be the one she‘s yearned for?

Pete’s world is a lonely one as he wrestles with the reality of being part zombie. His hatred for the creatures that killed his parents drives him to patrol the streets and wipe them all out. His life would be stark, but for the dreams he’s been having; of a woman, so sensuous, so sexy. These alluring visions have become erotic and consuming. He feels as if he made her up to keep from going crazy. Is this life of hunting the walking dead, all there is? Or is she out there, waiting…just for him?

My Review

I adore this prequel for it gave me strange dreams. If you have a dream like Wunder did, THEN you’d understand. This story clears and sets the scenes for Wunder #1: The Approach. ***SPOILER** This well-planned prequel contains the different perspectives of the two main characters. Wunder is definitely a loveable character. (I’m more Pete inclined though).
