Skin Deep (DarkWorld, #1), Lost Soul (DarkWorld, #2), and Last Chance (DarkWorld, #3) by T.G. Ayer reviews and giveaway ~Kami

Skin Deep (DarkWorld, #1)Skin Deep by T.G. Ayer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Kailin “Kai” Odel is an Alpha Panther shapeshifter and Wraith Hunter. During a battle with a Wraith, Kailin stumbles on a mysterious murder of another Walker. The reader is then introduced to such entities as “the paranormal information network”, “the non-Human community”, “Death-talker” and “the New Army of Wrythiin." . The writing and pacing of the story are good though at times riddled with cliches. The characters are interesting and sympathetic. Things start getting really interesting, exciting and action packed by chapter 14. Some of the magical aspects of the story, I found a little too much to swallow. There was just too much going on that the story became very scattered. But all in all an enjoyable read. 4 stars.

Lost Soul (DarkWorld #2)



In this second book of the series, Kai is seriously injured and sick from Wraith poison. Logan uses his fire magic to ease her pain but it can't cure her. Kai goes off to save her sister Greer. This book is full of action and adventure. It is fast paced and well written. Kailin is the Niamh, a hunter, foretold to help defeat the army of Wrythiin. Plus, Kai has to figure out how to rescue her mother and her friend Anjelo. There was just so much going on in this book and it was really exciting. I look forward to the next book. 4 stars.

Last Chance (DarkWorld #3)


I thought this was a trilogy and this was the last book but I was wrong. Books 4, 5 and 6 are set to be released in 2015. Kailin is off to rescue her mother and her friend Anjelo after the death of her sister. This book is full of action and Wraith battles. There is so much going on in this series: demons, death talkers and shape shifters like lynx and panthers. The writing is good and this is an extremely fast paced story. It is quite the roller coaster ride. 4 stars.


The 3rd installment in the DarkWorld: SkinWalker series. 

With the loss of her sister still weighing down both her conscience and her heart, Kailin Odel must take on the next part of her mission - find her mother and Anjelo and bring them back from Wrythiin. 

Kailin uses her mother's portal key and enters the Wraith world intent on saving the ones she loves, but from the moment she arrives her mission is fraught with peril. 

Arriving in Wrythiin, Kai steps right into the middle of a Wraith rebellion. And only to find that though Anjelo is safe, her mother is held captive by a subversive faction of Wraiths once led by the Wraithlord that Kai had killed. 

From Wraiths to Shapeshifters, rebel causes to fraying family ties, to inexplicable new powers, Kai must fight her darkest demons while entering the blackest pits of Wrythiin to save her mother.

Excerpt 1
When I get back, I’m going to make sure you know exactly how you make me feel.”
And how exactly do I make you feel?” I whispered, our mouths inches from each other.
Oh, you’ll have to wait until I return. But if you want an idea, its something along the lines that even when you’re weak and broken, you still manage to get my blood burning.”
Mmm. Is that a good thing?”
Definitely a good thing.”
I should get weak and broken more often, then.”
He grabbed my ass and squeezed, simultaneously pressing me against his body, his arousal firm against my hip. “Don’t you get any ideas. I quite like my women in one piece, thank you.”
More clattering from the kitchen made me grin. Logan released my butt and kissed me firmly on the neck before hurrying to the door.
His woman indeed.
Excerpt 2
"Saving from need,” he whispered, his voice hoarse. “You see, need is all-consuming, and she has to be saved or else it will mean the death of her." The other strap of my tee slid off my shoulder, the fabric skimming sensitive skin, heightening the ripples of desire that engulfed me.
Excerpt 3
The strap of my racer back tee slipped off my shoulder, and he kissed my collarbone, sinking his teeth into the sensitive skin, sending shivers of desire along my body, all the way to the pit of my stomach.
I cleared my throat and tilted my head down to look at him. "Just what is it you think you are doing?" Although I tried to be cool, even bossy, my voice came out husky and filled with desire.
"What does it look like?" he asked as he raised his head to look at me, his black eyes filled with fire. My collarbone felt bereft of his warmth, and the look in his eyes destroyed any facade of resistance I might have raised.
"What it looks like is breaking and entering," I said, my breath coming in short, sharp bursts.
Excerpt 4
You nervous?” I asked Lily.
She snorted. “I am a dimension-jumping virgin, you know.”
I laughed softly as I slid my hand into my jacket pocket and withdrew the portal key. It gleamed in the light, the solid weight giving me a strange comfort. A ripple of unease volleyed through me as I recalled the blood promise the high priestess had drawn from me. Sometime soon, that would come back to bite me in the ass. But right now, I refused to think about it.
Now I concentrated on Wrythiin.
Excerpt 5
Lily hit the ground with a thud and a small, “Oomph.”
I sat up and rubbed the bump at the back of my head. The silence was thick, as solid as the darkness around us. I sensed Lily shift beside me. "You okay?" I whispered.
After a moment silence, as if Lily were giving the question serious thought, she whispered, "Yeah. Wow. That was some ride. Now I know what babies feel like, being shoved through a tiny hole just to see life."
I snorted. Trust Lily to do something as ridiculous as compare traveling through dimensions to the act of birth.

I have been a writer from the time I was old enough to recognize that reading was a doorway into my imagination. Poetry was my first foray into the art of the written word. Books were my best friends, my escape, my haven. I am essentially a recluse but this part of my personality is impossible to practice given I have two teenage daughters, who are actually my friends, my tea-makers, my confidantes... I am blessed with a husband who has left me for golf. It's a fair trade as I have left him for writing. We are both passionate supporters of each others loves - it works wonderfully...

My heart is currently broken in two. One half resides in South Africa where my old roots still remain, and my heart still longs for the endless beaches and the smell of moist soil after a summer downpour. My love for Ma Afrika will never fade. The other half of me has been transplanted to the Land of the Long White Cloud. The land of the Taniwha, beautiful Maraes, and volcanoes. The land of green, pure beauty that truly inspires. And because I am so torn between these two lands - I shall forever remain cross-eyed.
