Blog Tour: EJ Wesley's Winter Thrills and Chills Tour & Giveaway

I'm hosting a stop on  E.J. Wesley's Winter Thrills and Chills Tour for his Moonsongs Series.  This tour is running January 6-17 and consists of reviews, interviews, top tens, guest posts and of course, giveaways!  Be sure to check out the tour page for the full list of stops.

EJ Wesley's Winter Thrills and Chills Tour
I took part in a blog tour for the first two books in the series, so was more than happy to take part in this tour for books 3 & 4! EJ Wesley is a talented author, who has come us with a great character!

 ~Book 3 - Dark Prelude~ 

Dark Prelude by EJ Wesley
Jenny Moonsong recently inherited the title of "monster hunter" and an ancient tribal journal/how-to manual passed down by her Apache ancestors. Unfortunately, a lot of on-the-job training is required to be a monster hunter, and unlike her computer repair business, this gig could literally kill her.

Dark Prelude finds the feisty protagonist, Jenny, searching for her best friend Marshal's missing father in the midst of a freak, West Texas winter storm. To survive the frigid night, she'll have to deal with a hated town rival, face a monstrous creature no Moonsong hunter has ever encountered before, and undo a mysterious curse. Can she keep everyone alive? If not, who will pay the ultimate price?


~Book 4: Dragon's Game~

Dragon's Game by EJ Wesley
Jenny Moonsong recently inherited the title of "monster hunter" and an ancient tribal journal/how-to manual passed down by her Apache ancestors. She has already faced a werewolf, witches, and a troll. But nothing could prepare her for her latest confrontation...

Dragon's Game, Moonsongs Book 4, finds Jenny out of her rural West Texas element, searching for an evil witch in an urban Houston nightclub. After attempting to help a handsome and mysterious stranger out of a jam, she finds herself on the run from a ruthless gang who are even more dangerous than they initially appear.

Forced into a twisted game of life and death, Jenny must navigate the complexity of a budding relationship, and somehow survive a night filled with unexpected horror and paranormal mystery.

Dragon's Game is approximately 14,000 words or 45 pages of humor, horror and paranormal mystery. It is the fourth volume of the Moonsongs Books, an ongoing series of New Adult, urban fantasy novelettes by author E.J. Wesley.

 ~My Thoughts~ 

I really enjoyed catching up with Jenny and her friend Marshal! She's still new at monster hunting and they are still trying to decipher the mysterious journal left to her by Jenny's grandfather. 

When Marshal's father disappears in book 3, Jenny fears the worst. She's afraid that there might be a monster on the loose and that her BFF's father may be one of its victims. When a despised bully heads out with a posse to track down the "animal" after the official search party is called off, Jenny tags along to try to rescue dad. Things do not end well...

Book #4 picks up soon after #3, with Jenny trying to track down an evil witch in Houston. She not only finds trouble, but jumps in with both feet! The girl really should learn to look before she leaps. On the plus side, she meets a hot, new guy. On the negative side, she might not survive the experience!

Really like Jenny, as she's not your typical heroine. She's not really sure what she's doing, she makes mistakes, and she gets hurt. I've always gotten annoyed with heroines who learn that they have powers one day and are uber-ninjas the next! I mean, really? 

Also really like that she's a tall, skinny girl with a purple faux-hawk and a tattoo. Not your typical main character. And her BFF Marshal is proudly gay, another unusual character that we don't see enough of in urban fantasy. Love these two!

This is a fun series if you're looking for original characters and an interesting storyline. I recommend reading them in order, but they're all quick reads so it shouldn't take long to catch up.

~About the Author~

EJ Wesley
Growing up in small-town Oklahoma, there were limits on the amount and types of entertainment at my disposal. Perhaps that’s why I set my imagination free. After collecting degrees in psychology and counseling, life brought me to Missouri, Texas, and Northern California - where I currently read, write, and live. I fill my spare time playing video games, watching movies, planning for the zombie apocalypse, reading graphic novels, and playing with my dogs.

My passion for New Adult literature led me to producing the weekly New Adult Lit Chat on Twitter, and contributing to the NA Alley Blog. I’m also the author of the Moonsongs Books, a series of New Adult, speculative-rural fantasy novelettes.
