Pulling a Book From the Pile: Dweller on the Threshold

Yesterday, Meghan announced 2014's 52-Book Challenge (as well as another new challenge). If you haven't seen the post, go check it out. I'll wait.

Of course, I answered the call and I am continuing my personal challenge to make sure that at least 12 of the books read come from those I already have waiting for me.

I don't have the exact number of books that are on my Kindle and bookshelves, quietly biding their time, hoping I will choose them next. That way lies madness and self-recrimination. I might just have a little 1-click addiction. We all have our vices.

January's book is Rinda Elliot's DWELLER ON THE THRESHOLD.

Blurb: "Beri O’Dell is investigating paranormal creatures because she wants to know what she is. Taller and stronger than most men, she astral projects and can peel through dimensional layers to see the creatures and spirits beyond.

She once helped her foster sister, Detective Elsa Remington, track down killers in Jacksonville, Florida, but stopped when a nasty fire elemental turned her strength against her. Now, she finds herself pulled back when something steals Elsa’s soul and puts her into a coma.

With little time to spare, Beri searches for the reason behind her sister’s coma. She has help in her spirit guides Fred and Phro, but others come along for the ride, including a pyro-nervous witch, and an androgynous necromancer.

The last thing Beri needs is to fall in love with a mysterious stranger. But the handsome Minoan warrior Nikolos knows what creature she’s after because he’s battled it before.

It’s bad.

Really, really bad.

He calls it the Dweller on the Threshold.


Contains a worried heroine with no time, a witch with fire problems, a pissed-off necromancer, a trapped goddess, and a damned sexy, but scary, warrior. Throw in bloody battles, mass-murderer history lessons and a bit of sexy time and you get the start of Beri’s new life."

An Urban Fantasy with romance and some paranormal action. You know that is my weakness!

I first started following Rinda Elliott after I discovered the Deadline Dames (thanks to Lilith Saintcrow and Devon Monk). I found a few authors from that site, like Jenna Black and Karen Mahoney, as well as a some good posts on a writer's life.

I bought this book awhile ago, but life got in the way. Now the second book is out and I don't want to get too far behind.
