Today I have the pleasure and honour of being among the rare few who get to share an exclusive teaser from Amanda Bonilla’s upcoming book, Crave the Darkness! I’ve been a fan of hers since her debut book, Shaedes of Gray, came out in December 2011 so I’m super psyched to be able to spread the Shaede Assassin love and to hopefully entice other readers to get caught up in the series before March 5 when her third novel comes out.
Amanda Bonilla is a pro at her craft and her incredible writing really shines through in her books; the pacing is fluid, the world-building vast and her characters are larger-than-life. I adored the way that she introduces her heroine Darian to readers! Shaedes of Gray starts off with our gal thinking that she’s the only supernatural on the planet but after years of flying solo she finally learns the truth. Bonilla gradually reveals the secrets of her shaede universe to both her character and her audience and the experience is beyond memorable.
Blood Before Sunrise is complex, fast-paced and the ending is simply heartbreaking. This book showcases Darian at her weakest but as you probably know, adversity breeds strength and the result is outstanding character growth. Ooh, and did I mention that there’s a plethora of yummy men to choose from? 😉
With a new novella AND book on the way now’s the perfect time to jump on the Amanda Bonilla fan-wagon if you’re not already on it! And trust me on this, you WANT to be on it!

Nothing comes easy for Darian. Her heightened powers make her indispensable to the Shaede Nation, but dangerous missions have driven her lover, Tyler, to his breaking point. Darian must salvage their bond, but a new assignment to protect Anya—a fellow Shaede and the first of their kind to become pregnant in centuries—stands in their way.
It doesn’t help that the two Shaedes are longtime rivals and share nothing besides mutual hatred. But when it becomes clear that someone—or something—is bent on destroying the expectant mother and her unborn child, Darian must put her feelings aside and track down Anya’s would-be assassin.
As she probes into Anya’s past, Darian digs up long-buried secrets—and a connection between Tyler and the mission that could destroy everything between them

She’s a part-time pet wrangler, a full-time sun worshipper, and only goes out into the cold when coerced. She loves the outdoors, black clothes, pink appliances and thinks junk food should be a recognized food group. In the summer, she can be found sitting by the lake, enjoying the view from her dock.
