Can you tell me a bit about the last scary movie you watched? (Were you alone? What snacks you had? What movie you watched? Did it scare you, etc.)

Title: The Seven Year King (The Faerie Ring #3)
Author: Kiki Hamilton
Publisher: Fair Wind Books, 320 Pages (May 17th, 2013)
Add to: Goodreads
Order Online here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository, Amazon UK

Synopsis: It is the seventh year—the time when the UnSeelie Court must pay a tithe to Seelie royalty to remain a separate entity. Sacrificed at midnight on Samhain, the UnSeelies call their offering the Seven Year King. This time, Donegal plans to sacrifice someone Tiki loves. To make matters worse, Fiona disappears, Johnny lies near death, and the threat of the liche comes closer. Tiki's only hope is that she and Rieker can find an ancient faerie treasure and outsmart the Winter King before the turning of the seasons. In this third book of The Faerie Ring series, Tiki is pulled between two worlds—and unable to find peace in either.

A deadly sacrifice, a heartbreaking choice, an uncertain future…

Tiki's journey begins with THE FAERIE RING…

London 1871

Tiki has been making a home for herself and her family of orphans in a deserted hideaway adjoining Charing Cross Station in central London. Their only means of survival is by picking pockets. One December night, Tiki steals a ring and sets off a chain of events that could lead to all-out war with the Fey. For the ring is a reservoir that holds a truce between the English royals and the world of the Fey. But there are many who want the ring, including those who would do anything to break the truce…

A delicious blend of urban fantasy and heart-stopping suspense, the story of THE FAERIE RING takes you from the gritty slums of London to the glittering ballrooms of the Royal Palace to the menacing Otherworld - in a thrilling series where nothing is what it seems...

Hi Kiki! It's great having you here today and thanks for helping us celebrate Halloween with this awesome author blog tour!

Would you ever want to spend the night in a haunted location? If so, why?

Given that I’ve seen shadows moving from the corners of my eyes since I was quite small and the fact that I now know faeries are real and potentially deadly, I’m not sure a few old ghosts would bother me.

About the Author: 

Kiki Hamilton is the author of THE FAERIE RING fantasy series and the YA contemporary novel, THE LAST DANCE. She believes in magic and the idea of hidden worlds co-existing with our own. Kiki lives near Seattle, though she dreams of living in London one day. Visit her website at: www.kikihamilton.com

Title: Daughter of Chaos
Author: Jen McConnel
Publisher: Month9Books (March 2014)
Add to: Goodreads
Order Jen's Books online here: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, The Book Depository, Amazon UK

Synopsis: Witches must choose the path they will follow, and Darlena Agara is no exception. She’s been putting it off long enough, and in her case, ignoring it has not made it go away. In a moment of frustration, Darlena chooses to follow Red Magic, figuring she had outsmarted the powers that be, since there’s no such thing as Red Magic. But alas, Darlena’s wrong (again) and she becomes a newly declared Red Witch.

Her friends are shocked and her parents horrified by the choice Darlena has made. As a Red Witch, she now governs one third of the world’s chaos. She is the walking personification of pandemonium, turmoil, and bedlam, just as the patrons of Red Magic would have it to be.

But Darlena believes there must be more to Red Magic than chaos and destruction, and she sets out on a journey to achieve balance. Only doing so puts her at odds with the dark goddess Hecate, who simply will not allow Darlena to quit. She encourages Darlena to embrace who and what she is and to leave good magic to the good witches. If only Darlena could, life would be simple, and she would not be the Daughter of Chaos.

DAUGHTER OF CHAOS is the first in a YA paranormal trilogy.

Hi Jen! Thanks for rounding out the Crossroads blog tour for me this year! It's been another fantastic year and I'm excited to have hosted you. Thanks for chatting with your characters for me!

Would you ever want to spend the night in a haunted location? If so, why?

Darlena (from DAUGHTER OF CHAOS): Maybe. I mean, I don’t know. I don’t think a ghost would hurt me...and if they tried, I could always use magic, right? Being scared is for Nons!

3 or more of your characters – please discuss various candies and why they love it. (Kind of like arguing what candy is the best?)

DARLENA: Pass me that bowl.
ROCHELLE: Here. Not as good a haul as last year.
JUSTIN: I can’t believe you girls still go trick-or-treating.
ROCHELLE: *Glares at him*
DARLENA: It’s fun. Besides, it’s a way to get free candy.
JUSTIN: *reaches into the bowl* I guess. At least you have some Tootsie Rolls.
ROCHELLE: *snorts* That’s, like, the lamest candy ever.
JUSTIN: Then you won’t mind if I take them all.
DARLENA: Just make sure you leave the peanut butter cups!
ROCHELE: What, are you five?
DARLENA: I like them. So?
ROCHELE: You’re pathetic.
DARLENA: Well, you went trick-or-treating, too.  Don’t you want any of the candy?
ROCHELLE: Of course.  That black licorice is mine.
ROCHELE: You just don’t understand.

When I review I rate from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest rating. I review based on many different things from the writing, to the story - to the characters and how I can relate to them or how they are developed. I also review based on if an author has worked their magic and was able to draw me into a story so deeply that I don't want to put the book down.

5 Stars - I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!
4 Stars - I Really liked/Loved it.
3 Stars - I liked it/Was pretty good.

1 Star - It just wasn't for me.
