Teaser Tuesday | The Species WithinThe Species Within by Kimberley Clark

WARNING: This book is intended for people aged 18+

Kira, a huntress plagued by dreams of fire and pain has worked tirelessly to rid her city of the scourge that has nearly destroyed it…nostvores, mythlend creatures with dark and vast appetites for blood and sex. She does this not only because they had killed so many people in her life, but also because she has an edge that no other human had…she has their abilities. The problem was, these abilities were killing her and she feared time was no longer on her side.

So the moment she found out that Darius, a nostvore leader was threatening to awaken an indestructible species to help him enslave all humans and mythlends, and that she may be the key to his plan, she knew her only choice was to risk her life with the little time that she had left and join her enemy to find out why, and to make sure his plan failed.

If that wasn’t dangerous enough, the more time she spends with the Vanatre nostvore Emmerich, and the mooran Kuron, who she brings with her for protection, the less she wants to kill them. Instead, she feels an unexplainable attraction towards them both, and she fears surrendering to such desire with either is a deadly game to play, for she would not only be risking her life, but quite possibly her heart.

I’m just getting into The Species Within and it’s slow going. I think that’s partly because I have a lot else going on and partly because it’s an unfamiliar world, so there’s a lot of world building to learn. There’s aspects I’m enjoying so far, so I definitely see potential. Here’s where I’m at right now!

My Teaser

Through the ages, whenever there was a massive battle to be had between humans, those in the mythlend world who could look like humans would choose a side and join in the battle. And it wasn’t only nostvores and lycrouds that joined the fray, but other species such as shifters, gargens, and azemans, among other species. This made the battles that much more interesting.The Species Within by Kimberley Clark, eBook, 23/488

About Kimberley Clark

Kimberley lives by the idea that everyone should have a bucket list of things they want to accomplish in life, but not only to have a list, but attempt to mark off as many items as possible. One goal that was high on hers was writing a novel and having it published. This idea of writing a novel wasn’t new to her, but an inevitability, as her love of reading books and watching movies inspired her to create her own stories. When the day came that she finally did start to write, she realized that this was going to be something that she wanted to do more than once, emphasized by the fact that her first novel was to be book 1 of a trilogy, and that there are many more stories waiting inside her head ready to be created. Her hope is that not only for people to enjoy hers books, but that people are inspired by them as others have inspired her.
Kimberley was born in Sydney, Australia, and currently resides in the Gold Coast hinterland.

      I’m STILL working on this one. I like it and don’t like it, if that makes any sense. There’s nothing specifically wrong with it, but I just am not dying to find out what will happen. This review is going to be a pain to write lol
