Hell's Captive by Beth Ann Masarik

Beth Ann Masarik brings us closer to the story of Damien and Selene in this newest short story! In a world where the Greek gods are still alive and well a love story that begins with death and hate is starting to unfold before us. In this short story Elise Stevenson is conducting an interview with Damien, the Prince of Darkness. Damien, a demon, vampire, rocking hot man who is battling between the forces of darkness and light that seem to live inside of his soul is trying to get his story out about what really happened with the moon goddess Selene and his part of the events that unfolded. The short story leaves us feeling sorry for this creature who was born in the dark and yet hungers for light and love. And now that Selene is a mortal will their love ever be able to bloom? Or will she never be able to forgive him for what he has taken from her? It just makes me so excited to read The World Among Us:The Prince of Darkness, which will hopefully be released within a few months!

I definitely recommend this short story. It's only a dollar on smashwords, amazon and barnes and noble for the e copy. It's not very long but you get a great sense of who the characters are and some background history on the world before delving into the bigger book. This short story is a great example of the type of emotion this brilliant young author can portray!

Hell Bound By Beth Ann Masarik

Hell Bound is the next short story in the series The World Among Us by Beth Ann Masarik. This up and coming author is has shown us her skill with the fact that in a few short pages she has clearly created well rounded characters that the reader know have depth. The main character is easy to relate too, a hard working woman who is just trying to get a story done in an impossible situation. Though I have to say I think she's braver then me because I don't think I could shit talk a goddess. The story is just an over all great blend of action, emotion and adventure! I really so hope that you all enjoy it as much as I did. 

This short story also features Elise Stevenson as the main heroine. A woman who works hard at her job and genuinely cares about getting the truth out to people. After working a long day her boss calls her into his office. After luring her in with praise he tells about her next interview, with the feared Hades himself in Hell. All poor Elise wants is a good night's sleep but unfortunately that's the one thing not on the table! The poor woman is whisked into an adventure walking through the dark halls of hell before encountering demons, a goddess named DuVessa and eventually Hades himself. 

So today we have something extra and awesome! With this review the author is running a give a way to help promote her series! I wish you all the best you can win everything from author signed swag to free copies of the book!
