As an avid reader of books, there’s one question that I get asked all of the time…”What book/series would you recommend?” I’m sure many of you get asked that same question all of the time too. Well, my answer every time is Relentless by Karen Lynch!!!!! READ IT NOW AND DEVOUR THE SERIES!! Lucky for you if you haven’t started this series, the whole series is out. You won’t have to suffer the agony of waiting for the next book to come out. There are many things I don’t do very often when it comes to books…I love books but I don’t usually “fangirl”, I don’t often reread a series because…come on there are so many books waiting to be read, and I pretty much never listen to audio books. The Relentless Series makes me do all of those things!! I’ve reread the series several times and listened to all the audiobooks (which are AMAZING), and I totally geek out/fangirl over this series. So, this post is all about celebrating the completion of the series and it’s release on audible!! Keep reading for info on all the books, a giveaway, and info on Warrior, a companion novel told from Nikolas’ point of view that’s coming out in the Fall of 2016..YAY!!
Official Blurb for Relentless (Relentless #1):
Sara Grey’s world shattered ten years ago when her father was brutally murdered. Now at seventeen, she is still haunted by memories of that day and driven by the need to understand why it happened. She lives a life full of secrets and her family and friends have no idea of the supernatural world she is immersed in or of Sara’s own very powerful gift.
In her quest for answers about her father’s death, Sara takes risks that expose her and her friends to danger and puts herself into the sights of a sadistic vampire. On the same fateful night she meets Nikolas, a warrior who turns Sara’s world upside down and is determined to protect her even if it’s the last thing she wants.
Sara’s life starts to spin out of control as she is hunted by an obsessed vampire, learns that her friends have secrets of their own and reels from the truth about her own ancestry. Sara has always been fiercely independent but in order to survive now she must open herself to others, to reveal her deepest secrets. And she must learn to trust the one person capable of breaking down the walls around her.
My walls fell. I was vaguely aware of something cold and slimy burrowing inside me like a parasite. The Mori shrieked in agony. Choking, dying, the Mori was dying. I’d always hated the dark thing that had been a part of me my whole life. I should be happy now that the beast would be no more. Instead, sadness bloomed in my chest and tears of grief welled in my eyes.
Coldness reached down, inching toward the center of my being. It came up against my last defense, the gate that held back the wellspring of my power. “Let meee innn,” it commanded as icy fingers pulled at the barrier in vain. I did as it asked, and I felt its triumph as it punched through and touched the essence of me.
Someone began to scream.
I was on fire. No, I was the fire. Roaring, raging, I was an angry volcano spewing molten rock up from deep within the earth. The lava scorched everything in its path with a cleansing fire that burned away the coldness and filth and bore down on the ugly thing pulsing in my mind. I felt a flash of terror that was not my own, and then the pressure in my head was gone.
My eyes opened to see the witch—I knew what he was now—stagger and fall to his knees. His eyes no longer glowed white, and his face had paled to a dark gray. “What… are you?” he choked, his black eyes full of shock and fear.

Excerpt from Refuge (Relentless #2):
“You were amazing tonight.”
“Really?” I searched his face for some sign he was patronizing me, but I saw only pride.
“The whole time I was out there, all I could think about was getting to you. And then I find you standing in the middle of it all, surrounded by bodies. I heard what you did. Don’t ever tell me again that you’re not a warrior.”
“I did have a lot of help,” I said, flushed with pleasure at his praise. It was the first time he had acknowledged my ability to take care of myself, and I was going to remember this moment for a long time.

Excerpt from Rogue (Relentless #3):
He spoke gruffly in my ear. “I did not chase you halfway across the country to let you leave me again. You are one of the strongest, most stubborn people I’ve ever met, and you are going to beat this. Do you hear me?” I didn’t reply and he asked more forcefully, “Do you hear me, Sara?”
“Yes,” I said through chattering teeth. I summoned the last of my strength, determined to never leave him again.

Karen Lynch grew up in Newfoundland, Canada, a place rich in colorful people and folklore to which she attributes her love of the supernatural and her vivid imagination. She moved to Charlotte, North Carolina years ago and was immediately charmed by the southern people, but she says she will always be a Newfie.
Though she loves supernatural fiction, she has a soft spot for Charlotte Brontë and Jane Austin. She is a fan of classic rock, country, and classical music, but her favorite music is the sound of a good thunderstorm or a howling blizzard. Two of her favorite pastimes are baking artisan breads for her friends and spending quality time with her two German Shepherds.
