Book Spotlight: Creche by Karin Cox

Folks I’m excited today. Beyond excited. Earlier this year I read Cruxim by Karin Cox. Loved it. Cruxim ended with a cliffhanger and I’ve been dying to know what happens next. Well the sequel is out now! Woooohoooo!

The cover is stunning:

Creche Know Thyself

The blurb:

Still grieving the loss of Joslyn and the Sphinx Sabine, and craving revenge upon Beltran, his Vampire nemesis, Amedeo the Cruxim is destined to learn more about his past in the sequel to Karin Cox’s critically acclaimed gothic paranormal romance Cruxim.

When he meets a female of his own kind, Skylar, who takes him to the hidden stronghold of Silvenhall Creche to learn Cruxim lore, the secrets revealed in the holy book of the Cruximus, and the lies told to him by his own kind, force Ame to question who he is really is, where his loyalties lie, and whether there is anything he desires more than vengeance.

  1. Yayyy!!! I have been waiting for this sequel too. This is getting really difficult though. When faced with so many good books to read, how does one choose where to start? LOL

    Oh my goodness that cover is stunning!!!! I love it.

  3. Having succumbed to Twilight this year (courtesy of a free load of books) I suspect I would probably enjoy this, so will see if our library has these books. Probably not.

      Not sure your library will, but occasionally she has sales and freebies on Amazon. Will try to keep you informed. I succumbed to Twilight a few years ago as well.
