New Additions To The TBR Pile In February

Even though February wasn't a productive month reading wise, I did manage to acquire some interesting titles...

The Survivor by Sean Slater

Description: Columbine. Dunblane. Virginia Tech. Winnenden. But Saint Patrick's High?

In his first hour back from a six-month leave of absence, Detective Jacob Striker's day quickly turns into a nightmare. He is barely on scene five minutes at his daughter's high school when he encounters an Active Shooter situation. Three men wearing hockey masks - Black, White, and Red - have stormed the school with firearms and are killing indiscriminately.

Striker takes immediate action. Within minutes, two of the gunmen are dead and Striker is close to ending the violence.

But the last gunman, Red Mask, does something unexpected. He runs up to his fallen comrade, racks the shotgun, and unloads five rounds into the man, obliterating his face and hands. Before Striker can react, Red Mask flees - and escapes.

Against the clock, Striker investigates the killings for which there is no known motive and no known suspect. Soon his investigation takes him to darker places, and he realizes that everything at Saint Patrick's High is not as it appears. The closer he gets to the truth, the more dangerous his world becomes. Until Striker himself is in the line of fire.

And the violence follows him home.

Tainted by Julie Kenner

Description: Lily Carlyle has never been a good girl. She's lied, cheated, and stolen, but she did it all to protect her younger sister. To keep food on the table after their mother died. She made a promise, after all. A promise to take care of her sister. To keep the family together. And that's a promise she's determined to keep.


When her sister is brutally attacked, a vengeful Lily resolves to exact her own justice from the monster responsible. She succeeds --- at the cost of her own life. As she lies dying, she is given a second chance: Though what she has done is evil, she can earn her way into paradise by fighting for the forces of good.


...and wakes up in the body of Alice Purdue --- a Boston barmaid who has more than a little familiarity with the battle raging between the light and the darkness. Each side is mustering its forces for all-out-war --- and Lily is going to become an assassin for the light.

It's a job she believes she can really get into --- but she doesn't realize that she may not be able to get out...

Torn by Julie Kenner

Description: Lily Carlyle had always lived on the edge. But after she died while avenging her younger sister, she came back to life as someone else --- and was recruited as an assassin for the light.


Lily is in trouble of the deepest kind. Having been tricked the forces of evil, she killed what she believed were "demons" at will. Now she knows better, and with a little help from half angel, half demon Deacon Camphire, she must try to take down the bad guys from within as a double agent.

Far easier said than done. The dark ones neither trust nor need Lily anymore. So to prove her loyalty, she'll have to lie, betray, and maybe even continue to kill the innocent. She thinks she can do all that --- but when she's asked to work with the one demon she most despises, she may be willing to lose her soul to end his existence...
