Plot wise, nothing really new or interesting to tell. Ivar Devorast had a dream to build a canal linking two great bodies of water, an endeavor that many wanted to succeed and many other wanted to fail, so the poor man was driven off the project and it was given into the hands of an incompitent beaurocrat as these things are want to go.

And as we have seen in Whisper of Waves, this sort of thing would not normally bother the otherwise stoic and self confidant man, he’s content to build and move on, letting others take credit for his work.  But something is different with this canal, and right now I’m not sure that that might be.  Maybe Scream of Stone will have the answers for me.

But for now, I need a break from the darkness, so trashy romance it is! Up From the Grave by Jeanine Frost coming up.

10357792There’s always one more grave to dig.

Lately, life has been unnaturally calm for vampires Cat Crawfield and her husband Bones. They should have known better than to relax their guard, because a shocking revelation sends them back into action to stop an all-out war…

A rogue CIA agent is involved in horrifying secret activities that threaten to raise tensions between humans and the undead to dangerous heights. Now Cat and Bones are in a race against time to save their friends from a fate worse than death…because the more secrets they unravel, the deadlier the consequences. And if they fail, their lives—and those of everyone they hold dear— will be hovering on the edge of the grave.
