Wednesday Spotlight – J.T. Geissinger

Today’s author spotlight post was suggested by Monika, who recommended author J.T. Geissinger and her Night Prowler Series. It is a set of six books, with the last one being published in 2014, so you won’t be having any unresolved cliffhangers and endless waits for the next book, which is always a bonus.

Let’s go back to the beginning and check out the very first book, Shadow’s Edge. It is free if you subscribe to Kindle Unlimited, or on for just $3.99 on Amazon.com if you don’t. To check out an excerpt, click HERE.

shadow's edgeSynopsis…

Leander McLoughlin is leader of the Ikati, an ancient tribe of beautiful, savage shape-shifters who live hidden in the forests of England. Their survival is rooted in secrecy, a secrecy threatened by the very existence of one raised outside the tribe. Charged with capturing her before she can expose their secret, Leander tracks the unsuspecting outsider to Southern California. The great warrior is prepared for a fight — but not for the effect the courageous young beauty has on his heart.

Jenna Moore spent her childhood in hiding, on the run from an unseen enemy. Now her mother is dead and her father has vanished without a trace, leaving Jenna alone to contend with sudden strange, superhuman abilities. When handsome, enigmatic Leander McLoughlin appears, promising answers to all of her questions, she knows she shouldn’t trust him. But their connection is as undeniable as the dangerous destiny drawing her home…

    Hi! I read the blurb of the book and although at first look it seemed interesting, there are 2 things that are bugging me:

    1. The ‘forests of England’ – I could have suspended my disbelief for the forests of Amazon or those of North America, but seriously, the forests of England just seem ridiculous. I looked on the Internet and they represent about 13% of the territory (in the past, apparently, they represented less than 5%, so where did this mythical tribe live?).

    2. The blurb has some elements which I found in another blurb, specifically that of Shana Abe’s first book of the Drakon Series – The Smoke Thief (not only that but it seems even the shapeshifters have similar ‘gifts’ – Drakons can turn into smoke/ The H turns into vapor)

    I suppose I’m nitpicking a bit.

      I kind of got a Drakon vibe, too, but I guess anything about dragons and England is going to put me there. I was really hit or miss on the Drakon books – I mean I would love one, not like the next one, then love the next one again. It was weird. I did much prefer the YA Lora Jones spin off, though. Now the waiting game continues for the third book.

      OK, so now I have to say something in J. T.’s defense. I’ve actually been to Sherwood Forest on a school trip (a very long time ago), and I remember being disappointed as it looked so different than I imagined it from Robin Hood. I think “The forests of England” is more a blurb problem, because, if I remember correctly, they don’t live in the forests, but they have a large estate with some wooded acreage around it. I don’t know the Drakon Series, so I can’t really say anything about that, but the Night Prowlers are not really primarily about dragons (though one or two do make an appearance). As to the vapor trick, I always thought that was a Carpathian thing, and everybody else copied it from Feehan. Anyway, I believe this was J. T. debut novel and as such it wasn’t perfect, I would probably rate it around 4 stars, but I found the characters engaging enough that I picked up the next book in the series and from there it just got better…
      If you want to read something else (another genre), J. T. also has a great Rock series (Bad Habit), absolutely loved the second book, and she writes Contemporary Romance/Romantic Suspense (Wicked series)…
