Audio Book Lovin' Presents: Dannika Dark's The Mageri Series and The Seven Series

Oh how do I love both these series, let me count the ways... Okay, I can't! There are way too many reasons why both The Mageri Series and The Seven Series are two series that I highly recommend and LOVE! Dannika has created a world with unique characters and abilities. While both series are PNR, they each are a blend of genre. The Mageri Series blends genre with Urban Fantasy and Contemporary. I've said it several times, The Seven Series, reads like a Contemporary, with PNR elements. I had the opportunity to read SEVEN YEARS before the BETA readers and at first I thought I was reading a contemporary.... and then BAM, shifters. However, not in the traditional sense. Again, Dannika has put a spin on what we know of the PNR World. So if you've never read a PNR before or you may not be that into it.... I would recommend you give both series a try! As for the audio books, Nicole has brought another dimension to the story! I could go on and on, but I'll let you learn more about the each of the series by scrolling down and listening to the samples below! There's a surprise as well! And don't forget to enter the giveaway!!! 


THE MAGERI SERIES


Sterling

Zoë Merrick lived an ordinary life until the night she was brutally attacked. She narrowly escapes death, rescued by Adam Razor, an ex-soldier who offers her friendship and a place to stay. But something else is different. Zoë is unable to control an unexplainable energy coursing through her body.

Justus De Gradi is a man who can teach her that control. She meets him by chance - a man who's handsome, arrogant, and not entirely human. He reveals that she's a Mage - an immortal made of light, not magic. Zoë must now make a choice: Rebuild her life in the human world with the man who saved her, or live with Justus and learn how to use her extraordinary gifts. Justus has sworn an oath to protect her life, but can he guard her from the one man who has a right to claim it?

Zoë learns the price of freedom...and the value of loyalty.

About the Author


This is the segment where you learn a little more about who I am, so here's what I can tell you:  I drink copious amounts of vitamin water placed precariously close to my laptop while writing. These are two healthy habits I have no intention of breaking. I'm a transplant living in the south, but I was born in the 70's to a military dad who moved us around the world.

When I'm not writing (which is all the time), I'm hunting down Indie music, watching movies, reading, eating Tex-Mex, discovering new ways to humiliate myself bowling, and burning up my laptop battery on the Internet. I have a relaxed, easy-going personality and don't like drama. I live with a cat who thinks she is a dog, or a goat (she eats plastic, so I'm not sure which).

Throughout my life, I've had insomnia. Counting sheep never worked and eventually I would imagine those sheep were the sole source of food after an apocalyptic battle where only thousands survived. I made up stories in a futile attempt to bore myself to sleep. The problem was, I got so wrapped up in my "head stories" that I would continue them through the following nights, changing it up each time to make it more exciting. Eventually, I started writing my ideas down - creating short stories, and then I discovered my love for poetry.

It's almost embarrassing how many spiral notebooks and stacks of paper I have of poetry and lyrics.

Another passion: digital art. I design all my book covers, marketing, and series art. I'm a very visual person and pursued photography as an avid hobby for many years.

I am not a YA author (I feel like I have to state this only because I've had a few people ask), but I think it's wonderful there are so many books available to teens in Urban Fantasy and Paranormal.

I am finally doing what I have always wanted to do: giving my characters a pulse through writing full time. I focus on adult urban fantasy romance, but I don't like labels and I enjoy blending genres to break out of the confines of predictability.

But it's what I love to do.

  2. I found Sterling by pure accident, which I now call pure luck. It was in a list of $0.99 book suggestions on Amazon at a time I needed something to read but was burning through books so fast I was really having to watch my book budget. I probably shouldn't admit this, but at the time I chose it solely based on the fact that the cover art spoke to me. Once I started reading I was hooked, and Dannika has quickly become my favorite author. Bonus points... she is very interactive with her fans. She keeps the energy high between books with contests and general fun, making sure you are left salivating for the next read.

    If you are on the fence at all about starting either of her series, just take the leap. You will not regret it!
