Series Discovery: Addison Fox - Sons Of The Zodiac

There are some days when I think I have it all thought out, wake-up - which is always good to do if you want to start the day - get some breakfast, do the household chores, walk the dogs and for today it was writing a review of a novel I really needed to do, since it already had been a week ago since I read it *gasp*  For some weird reason I choke up if I need to write a  review of a book read longer then a week ago. Of course when I hooked myself up to my virtual life (<- does this make me a nerd?) this morning I got sidetracked. First by e-mail, then by twitter, and then I made the mistake to look up some info on amazon and after that all hope was lost. I got really sidetracked from my schedule as the 'Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed' feature lured me with shiny new covers and book info. This is how I found the following debut author and her new hawt, hawt series. From amazon I started to google her name; Addison Fox, and found her kewl website that made my addiction purr like the zodiac sign I am, which is Leo. And, since the first story is of the Zodiac sign Leo and my name is Leontine I think I can read the clues and pre-ordered this book faster then hubby could say; "Don't ya have enough on the shelves?" I hope you all get intrigued as much as I was with reading the following information:

Book 1: The Sons of the Zodiac
Paperback: 384 pages
Publisher: Signet; Original edition (March 2, 2010)

Millennia ago, the Goddess of Justice created a race of fierce Warriors, each imbued with a special power of the Zodiac, charged with protecting humanity from the darkest of evils.

Charming, proud, and impulsive, Leo Warrior Brody Talbot is fighting what may be his final battle. Enyo, the Goddess of War, plans to fulfill an ancient prophecy to destroy humanity by harnessing the dark power of the Summoning Stones of Egypt and there's only one person who knows enough about the stones to help Brody diminish their strength.

Since her father’s murder, museum curator Ava Harrison has continued his research of Egypt’s ancient treasures. She’s just landed the exhibit of a century, displaying the Summoning Stones at New York’s Natural History Museum. Used to working alone, Ava is suspicious of the arrogant archeologist who’s been brought in to ensure the stones safekeeping–but his presence ignites an unexpected blaze of attraction.

Never in all his centuries has Brody met a woman who enthralls him like Ava. But, bound to protect her, he struggles to deny his passion as they are drawn into a dark and dangerous final reckoning between good and evil.

(I'm sorry girls I just had to throw in some eyecandy. Who wouldn't with the prospect of these warriors?)

The warriors known so far:
Leo: Brody Talbot
Scorpio: Kane Montegue
Taurus: Quinn Tanner

The Muse of THE SONS OF THE ZODIAC SINGS is Addison Fox:

Addison Fox can’t remember a time when words weren’t a part of her life. An avid reader, her love of the written word started at the tender age of 1 with The Owl and the Pussycat by Edward Lear (a poem she could recite by heart to any family member who would listen). Dr. Seuss, C.S. Lewis, Judy Blume and a host of others quickly followed until she discovered THE CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR by Jean M. Auel while writing a paper at the library in the 7th grade. Although not a classic romance, Ayla and Jondalar’s love story moved her firmly to the romance section of the bookstore and she hasn’t looked back!

Her debut novel, WARRIOR ASCENDED will be published by NAL in March 2010. WARRIOR ASCENDED launches her series, The Sons of the Zodiac, about an immortal band of Warriors, granted the powers of their astrological signs and charged with protecting humanity. The series blends sizzling paranormal romance with the myths of the ancients. Addison lives in Dallas, Texas.

  1. oh, I am loving the sound of this!!!

    Thanks for the heads up :)

  2. Looking good, hon! I know how it is to get sidetracked like that, and I love it :)
    You get choked up only after one week already... I still have to write a review for a book I read in 2009 *gasp* I'm a little behind, sigh.
    Didn't mind the man candy at all, sweetie! You know me, there's never enough of that ;)

    BTW why don't you have a little twitter button at the end of your posts to make it easy to twitter about it?

  3. Curator? Ancient Egypt? Treasure? I am so sold-this looks like a great find. I love that feature of Amazon-I've found some great books I wouldn't have even known about through them.

  4. @Sassy-Brit - you're welcome, I always love to share :)

    @Janna - Thanks for making me aware of such a button, I've added one knwo ;) And yeah, if I stall my reviewing I probably could still review the book but it would be with blood, sweat and tears. I'm looking green at your ability to review books from that long ago, Marissa can do that too, has the memoty of an elephant *grin*

    @Buckeye Girl Reads - Me too and those words are among the things that had me hitting the pre-order button ;)

  5. It works better for me, because I can look at a book with a more objective view when it's been a while. You know, it's not under my skin anymore...
    Got your email about the button code! It's looking good on your blog :)

  6. that's me picking my jaw up from the floor with your eyecandy. Thanks I needed that.

  7. Hon your now officially on my black list... my bankaccount does not like you, me wants this one!

  8. @Janna - For me its the other way around, I need to have a book under my skin to relay all my thoughts LOL

    @Smokinghotbooks - You're welcome, I've got more where that came from *grin*

    @Marissa - Hhhmmmm I remember a certain woman pimping out The Rose Of Shanhasson to me, her name starts with an M and it ends on arissa *wicked laughter*

  9. #Looking very innocent here#... Who did you say, never heard of her...

  10. This looks very interesting (including the cover). Guys from the zodiac, that's a new spin on the paranormal.
