Tour Stop: Dark Return by Taryn Browning

Authors I Look Up To
by Taryn Browning

Richelle Mead (Vampire Academy), Cassandra Clare (The Mortal Instruments) and Suzanne Collins (Hunger Games) are a few of my favorite authors. Each series has phenomenal characters that you find yourself rooting for and wanting to know more about throughout each book. They also have fantastic storylines that make you want more. I love books that keep me up late and stay with me long after I'm finished reading. It is my hope that my books bring a wonderful escape to my readers.

I also look up to Stephenie Meyer (Twilight), JR Ward (The Black Dagger Brotherhood) and Julie Kagawa (Iron Fey). These authors have a way of making you fall in love with their characters - well Mead and Clare too, since Jace and Dimitri are two of my top book boyfriends, lol. Although, I'm quite smitten with the guys of the Black Dagger Brotherhood.

These authors have helped pave the way for young adult fiction. They've made an amazing (and my favorite) genre popular for all ages, teens through adults. I look up to these woman and their accomplishments. Their examples of great storytelling and character development have helped me develop my own craft, and for this I am so grateful.


Title: Dark Return
Author: Taryn Browning

Janie Grey is dedicated to hunting the undead, an inherited duty passed down from her Cherokee ancestors and generations of powerful Seekers before her. Then, there's Kai. He's like no one she's ever met - cocky, fast, skillful, infuriating and gorgeous. Not only has he become a valuable asset in her fight against the growing population of the vampire/demon hybrid known as Daychildren...

She's unwittingly fallen for him.

Just when Janie thinks she's learned everything there is to know about Kai's mysterious past, there's a newcomer to Baltimore. Someone who will do anything to make sure Janie loses Kai forever.

Darkness returns in Nov, 2012...
