Time for Death by Christie Silvers

Time for Death Blog Tour
and Giveaway...

Liz Baker, a 32 year old small town bar owner, thought it would be a normal evening of sex in a cemetery with her longtime beau, until she spotted someone in the distance, and all normality in her world ceased to exist.

After several murders in her small town of Tremmel Crossing, Georgia, Liz comes to the realization that the murderer is coming after her, and he's more dangerous than any human could possibly be.

With the help of her dead mother, bar bouncer, and cemetery lover, Liz learns that the murdering vampire was sent by her biological father to claim her as his own. Only then does she discover her real parentage and underlying special powers.

However, the vampire sent to claim her has powers of his own, most importantly the power to control her mind, emotions and desires. She wants him, needs him, her entire body aches for him, but she soon finds out that she must fight back to save the lives of her friends and loved ones. Only death will release her from Marcus's powerful hold, but who will die first? 

Kathryn's Review
Time for Death is a fast paced, action packed, sexy, fun read...
You are introduced to Liz Baker, bar owner in a small town in Georgia, that is care-free and lives life to the fullest... Yet, one night, while having some hot "fun" with her best friend with benefits... Her world is turned upside down and everything changes for her...
Things that she held as truths were dispelled and with this new information she has to decide what she was exactly going to do with her life...
With a jump in to the supernatural world, Liz leads us on a journey that is a joy to read and get lost in... Although, I do have to say... That after we were led up to that pinnacle moment at the end, I felt a little let down with how it ended... I know, I know, it leads us in to the next book... But there was something particular I was looking for, and it just wasn't there... Hopefully book two will enlighten me...
Great read... Pick it up and see for yourself!

Shelley's Review
Time for death has a rather unique storyline. Sure it's a vampire tale, but it's not like anything I've read before. It's very much a psychological thriller with a lot of spice.
Liz is a fun, easy going, snarky and smart heroine. I love her sass and her sailor mouth. She just doesn't mince words with anyone. She's straight up cool and well liked.
She faces the unknown head on and no holds barred with the help of her best friend/lover, Rick (love him!) and her bar's straight forward and powerful bouncer Chad.
Everything changes for the crew after a little romp in the local cemetery and Liz quickly discovers nothing is what it seemed. Her whole world is about to change...and not for the better.
This is a fun, fairly fast paced read with plenty of action, affection and wise cracking among the friends. I won't tell you anything about our vampire, other than that he's scary, erotic and not what you'd expect. He has his eyes set on Liz and has the power to get her by whatever means necessary. Circumstances require a desperate rescue and we follow Liz through the wilderness of Georgia as she races against time to save someone she loves and with any luck, defeat her mysterious and ruthless foe.
TFD had me laughing, on the verge of tears and...I'll admit it...a little freaked out at times. 
While I hoped to hear more from a certain character at the story's end, Christie makes it evident things will carry on in to the second book, but twists the events in such a way that has you ready to find out what's next for Liz. I enjoyed the colorful way Christie portrays Liz and I'm curious to see where she takes us in the sequel. I have a few questions that really really need to be answered...are you listening, Christie? I. Need. To. Know. Don't leave a girl hanging...4 flames for creepiness, unexpected turns and eager anticipation for the next installment.

I thought life would get back to normal after I offed Marcus. I wanted adventure, but not the kind that could kill me with the glimmer of an idea. Yeah, he was a god in bed, but what fun would that have been if I never felt my own feelings and thoughts again? 
Now I'm surrounded by more monsters. I somehow knew there couldn't be just vampires in the world, but a girl can hope, can't she? Oh well, that's not how it works in the real world.
Adele's estate is gorgeous, much bigger than I'm accustomed to, and it turns out to be an excellent headquarters once Cole McIntosh--Wendigo Extraordinaire--shows up and demands my services. Hell, I don't even know how to use the powers I supposedly have and this bastard wants me to reverse a gypsy curse. It's not my problem he's a dumb ass and got himself split in two. I happen to like his better half anyway. He makes a great sandwich! 
Now Rick's pissed at me, Chad's looking as smoking hot as ever, and I have a handful of staff, friends, and my new high-class lawyer helping out...but will I be ready when Cole comes knocking at the front gate?

 Saddled with the knowledge that she's not only a half-vampire, but also expected to be some kind of supernatural warrior to battle evil, Liz Baker--34 year old small town bar owner--would rather life went back to normal, choosing to ignore her destiny instead.

She survived murdering a vampire lover, being possessed by a spirit of her ancestor in order to destroy a wendigo, and even finding out that her ghostly mother is in love with the attorney in charge of her newly acquired fortune. But will she survive finding out that she has eleven half-vampire brothers and sisters?

Even with Chad at her back, and an ex-military werewolf pilot giving them defensive pointers, Liz simply wants to go back to normal. What ever normal is now. How will she ever find normal again though, what with a demon haunting her waking hours and a vampire trying to pull her into his paranormal army of offspring?
