Nia Shay Take Over Post... sort of.

Today we had planned another author Take Over post by the awesome paranormal author Nia Shay, however due to personal reasons Nia hasn't been able to complete her post (we're hoping to still get it and post it at a later date for you all) so instead I'm going to show you all her beautiful books.

Dark Angel's Ward (Angel Warden Series #1)Dark Angel's Ward by Nia Shay

Book Synopsis:

Two years ago, Jandra Maxwell walked away from the secret Fairlight Society and started a new life in a quiet Texas town. When her former Ward, the dark angel Zeph, seeks her out and begs for her help, Jandra faces an impossible choice. She knows he can only offer her heartache, but she can’t turn her back on the only man she’s ever loved.
Zeph teeters on the brink of madness, pummeled by emotions his angelic blood once rendered him incapable of feeling. Driven to protect Jandra from a threat he can only glimpse in nightmares, he refuses to leave her side. As they explore the mystery of his recurring dreams, they discover the Fairlight Society has been keeping a terrible secret – one they’ll kill to protect.
Fighting for her life isn’t so easy when Jandra’s also fighting her heart. Her her inexorable attraction to Zeph may save them...or may damn them both

Shona's rating: 5 of 5 stars (from October 2012)

I'm actually struggling with what to say here.
Its taken me a few days to finish reading this, but that has more to do with my family life rather than the readability of the book.

Nia Shay is a new to me author, this is the first time i have read anything she has written and now that i have i can honestly say i will be reading more of her work. In fact the next book i read will be her Ugly Like Me.

From the moment I started reading I was hooked. Jade and Zeph's relationship was awesome, I loved that she beat the crap out of him when he first showed up even though it was painfully clear that she still loved him, and their back story was revealed gradually rather than being dumped on you all in one hit which would have been too much to deal with.
I really liked Brax and I really hope he shows up in later books, even if I'm not sure whether he his a 'good guy' or 'bad guy'.

As paranormal romances featuring Dark Angels/Fallen Angels go this is rather superb and is a definite must read.

Ugly Like Me (Angel Warden Series, Book 1.5)Ugly Like Me

Book Synopsis:

Another great read from Nia Shay.

This short story takes place shortly after the events of the first book and ties up the loose ends with Bellyryphan from the first book.

Again told from Jandra's POV and we get a glimpse of how she is dealing with her recent discoveries, as well as the effects of her recent interaction with Ryphan.

I'm definitely hooked on this series and I desperately need the next instalment ASAP. Please and Thank you.

About this author
Nia Shay is a reclusive weirdo who lives in a tiny concrete box in the middle of the Arizona desert. (No, seriously.)

In between dealing with mild OCD and an epic caffeine addiction, she finds time to mold the voices in her head into cohesive sarcastic remarks, and sometimes even a story or two. She has been penning such tales, almost all of them with a decidedly paranormal flavor, since the second grade.

Now that paranormal fiction is the "in thing," Nia has decided to overcome her extreme distaste for trends and jump on the ol' bandwagon. Join her on her harrowing journey through the twisted corridors of her own mind. That is… if you dare.
