Product description


"...a fascinating story that is well written, has entertaining dialogue, a fair amount of humor, and lots of tension. The ending caught me off guard with a huge twist. I can't wait to read the sequel." ~ Big Al's Books & Pals "So engrossing you forget to do necessary things like eat or go to the bathroom. I loved it that much!" ~ The Tome Gnome "The characters were just as alluring and mysterious as the plot. I couldn't get enough of them. Sol was the best!" ~ Bookworm Coalition

About the Author

Karissa Laurel always dabbled in writing, but she also wanted to be a chef when she grew up. So she did. After years of working nights, weekends, and holidays, she burnt out and said, “Now what do I do?” She tried a bunch of other things, the most steady of those being a paralegal for state government, but nothing makes her as happy as writing. She has published several short stories and reads “slush” for a couple of short-story markets. Karissa lives in North Carolina with her kid, her husband, the occasional in-law, and a very hairy husky. She loves to read and has a sweet tooth for speculative fiction. Sometimes her husband convinces her to put down the books and take the motorcycles out for a spin. When it snows, you’ll find her on the slopes. Karissa also paints and draws and harbors a grand delusion that she might finish a graphic novel someday.

“One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star.” - Friedrich Nietzsche

“I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge. That myth is more potent than history. That dreams are more powerful than facts. That hope always triumphs over experience. That laughter is the only cure for grief. And I believe that love is stronger than death.” - Robert Fulghum

This dream was worse, So. Much. Worse. Than all the others. Horrifying, bloody, savage. And the worst part?

It was true.

Solina’s brother is dead, torn apart by a wolf-like creature. A monster who talks. Who thinks, and plans, and has yet another goal.
Kill Solina. Eat her alive.

A baker by trade, an introvert by nature, Solina Mundy is pulled to Alaska where her beloved twin met his end. Ostensively, to gather her brothers things and close down his apartment. Realistically? To find out what really happened to her brother. Everyone is hiding things. Everyone apparently knows things she doesn’t. And they have no intention of telling her anything – or of helping her in any way. Go Home, Little Girl. Nobody wants you here.

Like. Hell. Solina is afraid, sure. She is, by nature, passive. A homebody who spends her time working in her parent’s bakery, kowtowing to their every wish. She has always left her twin, Mani, to be the adventurous one, the one who allowed her to live vicariously through his actions. But now, Mani is dead, and Solina is meeting obstacles every way she turns. Mani’s boss, Thorin, is a cold, unwielding jerk, belittling and demeaning in word and action. Val, on the other hand, is a Player, in all forms of the word. He was Mani’s best friend, and helped Solina though the first few months after Mani’s death.

Fantastic !! Excuse the pun but talk about the saying "a wolf in sheeps clothing" here I thought this was going to be a book,all about a naive woman, who dared to venture from her home for once in her life, to look into the death of of her twin. And yes I was right !!! But wow !! I did not expect this. Karissa Laurel, transported me around the world with just enough description that I could imagine myself there. The story was told in the voice and thoughts mainly in the words of the main character Solina, which I prefer to third person storytelling. This way it made it feel more real. I was carried along on her emotional journey, experiencing situations, that sometimes caused a giggle, but mainly the frustration of the meek and timid woman, not being taken seriously, and everyone waiting and warning her to go back home to her mundane and safe life. Then "pow" I'm in the middle of reading this great mythology story, the other strong characters who I thought I knew, turned into so much more, and certainly not in the conventional mythological way, then the story flew off with all this danger, romance, cloak and dagger confusion, humour, perplexity and enough testosterone flying about to power up the grid. Solina didn't know what had hit her. I don't like leaving spoilers, as I believe each individual could take different things away from each novel written. To me this story was a dramatic and action filled. Karrisa Laurel did something different with the characters, plot and story and I would recommend to any Fantasy and Mythology fans to discover the intricacies of this book. I can't wait to read the next book.

Midnight Burning, Karissa Laurel
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, Sci-fi and fantasy
Well, wow! What a fabulous story. I was blown away by this book. I wasn’t sure what to expect, hadn’t heard of the author, couldn’t find out much about her, but the book is already out so I reads the sample and....was hooked on the story. I was in a bit of a reading slump having somehow picked some books that were just meh....for me anyway, reading is always a personal journey. then I picked up this and another great fantasy read, Amy Lane’s Vulnerable and it brought me back to just why I love to read.
It starts off fairly innocuously, with Solina going to Alaska, to see what she can find out about her twin brother's murder.No-one knows who, how or why he was killed and there doesn’t seem to be much investigation going on. . She’s been having nightmares about him being killed by a slavering, vicious wolf. She’s had prophetic dreams and visions at times before, and she can’t leave the chance to find some justice for her brother. It takes her into a world of danger though, involving Mani’s employer and his friends, and bringing into play what seems like a ridiculous theory about Norse Gods and Ragnarok, but which seems to become more and more relevant.
There’s a number of major characters. Solina of course, Mani’s girlfriend Skyla, his employer Thorin, and his best friend Val. All play a much deeper part than it seems. Skyla is determined to find out who killed Mani, Thorin wants Solina to leave everything and go home, he’s kind of an overbearing jerk to begin, and then there’s Val...he’s like an eternal playboy and wants in Solina’s pants. She describes him as Patron Saint of the Perpetual Erection – I just loved that phrase and it was so apt...
