“I knew I was a little different from most demons but nothing says freak of nature like a one-eyed gypsy saying I had a rainbow glow. It just didn't sound complimentary.”
Mary Abshire, Claiming the Evil Dead

“I want to pick up a few other items at the house,” Jules said as Katie stepped around the car. “I still have my roller skates and yours in my closet.”

Katie opened the door and paused, staring at Jules.

“What?” Jules asked.

“Are you serious? Our lives are in danger and you want to get our roller skates?”
Mary Abshire, Immortal Revenge

“Emotions are destructive, Ms. Dillinger. One of two things will happen to you. You will either be hurt and wish you were dead, or you will end up dead.”

Katie stopped in front of the next cooler and checked inside. “I’m human. What am I supposed to do? Just…be?”

“Welcome to the world.”
Mary Abshire, Immortal Revenge

Topics Mentioning This Author

“You forget, darling.
I am the local psychopath.”
Kelley Armstrong, Bitten

“Are you the welcoming committee? Or has Jeremy finally chained you up to the front gate where you belong?"
"I missed you too.”
Kelley Armstrong, Bitten

“I was very strict on that point. No devouring classmates." Jeremy rolled his eyes. "Other parents warn their kids not to talk to strangers. I had to warn mine not to eat them.”
Kelley Armstrong, Stolen

“Another werewolf thing. Like most animals, we spent a large part of our lives engaged in the three Fs of basic survival. Feeding, fighting and... reproduction.”
Kelley Armstrong, Stolen

“Next Clay gave the house rules for living with theSorrentinos , which sounded a lot like the Ten
Commandments. Thou shall not lie, steal anything, kill anyone, disrespect your hosts or covet
any of Nick's girlfriends. And if you break the rules, you'll get your ass kicked and handed to you
in pieces—a part I suspect God left out.”
Kelley Armstrong, Frostbitten

message 8: by Mary

Mary Abshire Thanks Tammy for accepting me!
I recently got hooked on goodreads and shelfari. Both are good sites for me to keep organized with my books. I have so many, too many, waiting TBR. But it's all good and fun :)


Olivia Cunning Hi, Mary. It's nice to meet you.

Thess Looking forward to reading your book and thank you for the request that made me find it ;)


message 13: by Mary

Mary Abshire LOL Thess. I saw you love vampires AND you are reading a kim harrison book. One friend request coming right up :o)
Are you enjoying her books?


message 14: by Thess

Thess I am, even more with this second one and I'm quite happy there are atl 6 more to go at this point :) Yup, I'm a complete (and very proud) vamp-junkie, which means I also just bought your book off bookstrand.com. It just needs loading into my iPad and I'm all set ;)


message 15: by Mary

Mary Abshire WOW, talk about fast! I hope you like it!! Will you let me know?
I love Kim's writing/her style. There's one of her books that made me cry. I'm not going to say why because I don't want to spoil anything. But when you get there, you'll have to tell me. I think you will know what I'm referring too. Maybe I'm a bit of freak, but sometimes books have that emotional punch that get to me.


message 16: by Thess

Thess Ofc I will:) yeah, same here, books have a slight tendency to suck me in to the point where I forget about real life and everything feels personal in a way. I can think of several scenario's in this series than would make me cry my eyes out, one worse than the other, and when i get there, I'll tell you for sure:)


message 17: by Mary

Mary Abshire who is your favorite character so far? Mine was kisten.


Aura**bitten by books** thanks for d add XD


message 19: by Mary

Mary Abshire Zosia and Aura, thanks for accepting. Happy reading! Lots of new books coming out. My TBR pile is outrageous and never ending. But that's a good thing, right?

Hey Brandi! Thanks for accepting me. Saw you like Kelley Armstrong. I love her books!


Brandi ;) Mary wrote: Hey Brandi! Thanks for accepting me. Saw you like Kelley Armstrong. I love her books!"

I've only read her YA novels so far and I LOVED them. I want to start the adult novels this year, I know I'm going to be hooked!


message 23: by Mary

Mary Abshire Brandi ;) wrote: I've only read her YA novels so far and I LOVED them. I want to start the adult novels this yea..."

Her YA is a bit different from the adult. But if you like PR, then you should like her adult series. I like her style and voice. Clay and Jeremy are my fave characters in the Otherworld series. Bitten was difficult for me to get into at first. I actually read Stolen first, then went back and read Bitten. Odd, I know, but it worked and hooked me. Hope you enjoy them!!
