    First, I want to say this was one of the most interesting books

    First, I want to say this was one of the most interesting books I’ve read in a while. It has so much as part of its tale. And really, what if as a scientist, you discovered you could transport yourself to a parallel demension. ooooh, it’s like fringe. With really HAWT werewolves :) And a tale of different species working together. Ya know, the crazy vampers always want something LOL!

    Dr. Susan Barlow starts out as a physicist that built a machine, literally over the span of her life, that can transport her into a more primitive version of Earth. Man, was she in for some serious trouble when she learned it worked. HEHEHE and there’s no humans :) yeah, I had a big smile on this one, because I would LOVE to go here. :) She is literally tossed around for a bit, then rescued, the kidnapped, then kissed. I mean, it’s crazy how much fun this story was. 

    And of course, there’s some great side characters. I am going to keep some of those characters to myself, but I will say, there’s a very cool princess werewolf, and her body guard that I hated, and then really liked. A vamper who I wanted to like, but he just kept making terrible choices with good intentions. UGH. I really tried :) And of course that Alpha werewolf that will make everyone’s blood boil when he walks by :) He’s so worried about helping his people, and using the Doc to do it, that he forgets a few things…. like a hot woman :) LOL 

    I really enjoyed this one. It’s fun, has a plethora of mysteries, and a wonderful world created for the supernatural. I really am hoping that this author will continue somehow with this series or maybe some add on. SOMETHING… Dear nice Ms Nicholas, if you read this, PLEASE write some more of this world with these wonderful characters :) Everyone else, you should check it out NOW! I would love for you guys to like it as much as I did :) Plus, there’s an excellent plot twist you won’t see coming. :) HEH, I didn’t, but it works out in a way that is lovely and has made me want more! 5 FANTASTIC PAWS!!

    Alti-verse, Werewolves, Vampires, Oh My!

    I have fallen in love with Annie Nicholas!
    The heroine introduced was not afraid to stand up for herself when she encounters new creatures/people in completely foreign territory - like a whole different Earth.
    The hints that compared this new world to ours and showed where things took a left turn were great - after all this is an Alti-verse.
    Loved all the characters and want more - I want the next book now.

    Richly Complex and Nuanced!

    Richly complex and nuanced, Scent of Salvation by Annie Nicholas, Book One of the Chronicles of Eorthe, is an intricate story of alternate dimensions and paranormal creatures that will appeal to lovers of fantasy and paranormal romances alike.

    Dr. Susan Barlow creates a machine that transports people to alternate Earth dimensions. When told that her machine would be used by the military, Susan sabotages it and accidently sends herself to an alternate dimension. Unaware of the dangers that await her in this new world, Susan is unprepared for a world filled with shifters and vampires. Susan first comes in contact with the alpha male of the Apisi Pack; Sorin is in his feral, shifted form and speaks English. Appropriately, Susan freaks out and runs, discovering there are far more dangerous beings in this new world. Susan is intelligent and quick-witted character who always keeps her head in the game as she figures out to survive, which I absolutely adored. Susan’s gut tells her that she can trust Sorin. A stoic character, Sorin is difficult to decipher because he is not always forthcoming with his feelings. Even though Susan, as a human, doesn’t fit in with the Apisi Pack, she has no problems using playful banter, keeping Sorin on his toes and providing many laugh-out-loud moments. Although Sorin is not used to that kind of banter, he realizes that he likes it coming from Susan. Through these conversations and time spent with Susan, Sorin reveals the playful and romantic side of his personality, which endeared his character to me.

    Nicholas does a masterful job of establishing secondary characters who propel the plot forward. Kele and Peder have the potential to be a couple in a future story. Also, the author’s develops characters who you will love to hate—Kele’s parents and the vampire Benic—adding depth to the story and the multi-layered plot.

    Tying up major plot points while leaving just enough unanswered questions, Scent of Salvation is the perfect balance of romance, action, and vivid world building, ensuring the reader will be fully immersed in the story and come away wanting more.

    I received an eBook copy from the publisher for purpose of an honest review for The Jeep Diva. I was not compensated for this review, and all conclusions are my own responsibility.

    Fantastic!!! Absolutely brilliant. This is one of the best books

    Fantastic!!! Absolutely brilliant. This is one of the best books I have read in a long time. The love scenes were SMOKIN', and the story kept developing more twists that kept me turning the pages. Annie was without a doubt "in the zone" when she wrote this book. The love between the hero and heroine was so real and intense...I would have kept reading this story even if it was a zillion pages long. The text throughout was so witty and sharp. I was not bored once with tis one!

    I can't wait to read more in this series!!!
