What does it mean? Are we all going to die? IS THIS BAD? SHOULD WE HIDE?

Relax. I know harpies aren’t the cutest or cuddliest of creatures, but do not hide.

Instead get your reading peepers ready, folks. A new book is headed your way. But it’s a sequel, so let me introduce you to the first. The Harpy by Julie Hutchings…

Blurb: Charity Blake survived a nightmare. Now she is the monster others dream about.

By day, punk-rock runaway Charity Blake struggles through a stream of dead-end jobs and the haunting memories of her past. But at night she is the Harpy, sprouting wings with black feathers, and claws made for tearing the flesh of her prey. 

Having survived a lifetime of abuse and torment from a sadistic man who broke her spirit, Charity’s physical manifestation of her grief and anger allows her to hunt down those like her abuser. Only this time, Charity isn’t a helpless little girl praying for things to end. Now she is the monster, and hell hath no fury like a harpy scorned.

Power always comes at a price though, and Charity’s inner predator craves to take over. Torn between a life with no feeling other than the sweet satisfaction at ripping evil apart or suffering through her days to stay with the two people she cares for most, Charity must choose between her human existence or the wild and feral freedom of a flying avenger.

Go find it on Amazon!

Want to know what I thought about The Harpy, go read my little review on The Midnight Society blog…Great Horror Book Alert: The Harpy. I loved this book. I loved the story. I loved the characters. Not a sweet touching little tale, this book grabs you by the throat and holds tight. So many images and feelings remain in my dark heart from The Harpy, and I shall treasure them.

You’ll want to read it because book two is about to hit the world on January 14th.


Blurb: Charity Blake became a nightmare. But there are far more dangerous monsters out there than her.

Train-wreck antihero Charity Blake thrives at being a winged avenger, but exacting vengeance takes as much from her as it gives. To retain the humanity she’s fought tooth and claw to keep, she tries to walk away from her monstrous side for good.

With no sense of purpose and a lifetime of failures haunting her, Charity struggles not to fall back into old, murderous habits. Until she meets a little girl who is more broken than herself. Rose presents a new direction for Charity. One where they can combine their carnal abilities to rewrite a horrendous history of wrongs that have impacted so many like themselves.

While Charity revels in the idea of following a new path, Rose drowns in her own power as she tries to piece together parts of her life her mind has buried deep. As Rose unearths hidden truths about her past, her catastrophic abilities spiral out of control, threatening everyone’s future. Overcome with debilitating grief and a world-altering rage, Rose becomes a danger beyond anyone’s control. A colossal threat that Charity must stop.

Pre-order now on Amazon! Release day is January 14th! SO SOON!

When I learned that Julie was writing a sequel, I nearly died of joy. I can’t wait to head off into the messy world of emotions with Charity. I can’t wait to meet Rose! And I hope Keegan is still around…my little spot of sunshine.

Julie herself is a spot of sunshine. Go find her on Twitter @HutchingsJulie. And head on over to her blog.
