She is different, unique, and one of a kind. Even in this weird new world. In a world ravaged by an inter-species war and almost devoid of Witches, she has to hide, keeping her heritage a secret. Only two people knew the truth about her: her father and her mentor; her savior, Seth. A highly trained assassin, she kills with impunity if the target deserves such a sentence. Unfortunately, far too many do. The lawlessness that stretches from coast to coast allowing unspeakable acts to go unpunished.
Vampires, Werewolves, Demons, and a host of other species now run free upon the earth and some of them were downright evil. She tasks herself with dealing with wrongdoers whenever she can. She is strong, fearless and powerful. An anomaly, probably the only Witch/Wolf hybrid left alive. She shields herself from detection. If anyone knew she has Witch DNA they would all come after her and she couldn’t take such a horde on and live.
Her assignments as the ‘go to’ assassin for The Council give her plenty of opportunity to wreak justice upon those who deal in death and destruction. Her targets mostly found dead with black lips and tongue; a result of her spells and not just the poison everyone thinks. So, when the new Head of the Council, Basilius, a Demon, tasks her with taking out the most powerful Vampire alive she can’t refuse. Can she?
The Black Rose will strike again for the good of humanity. It’s what she believes she’s been born to do and she will tackle this as she does all of her missions; with deadly intent. There’d be no difference this time. Would there? Or is the dangerous Vampire, Cassius Allarde, not all that he seems?

Come follow Rose’s journey as she fights to find out the truth. About the Demon, the Vampire and the Witch hunt that destroyed most of her kind. Book 1 in A K Michaels new series, The Black Rose Chronicles. If you like your dystopian books with the added bonus of supernatural beings in abundance then this book is for you.

Hearing a laugh from her left, her head spun in that direction, a large bear of a man sauntering out. A dirty, unkempt beard covering his face, so all she saw clearly were his eyes. Eyes that were not in the least friendly, and held the red tinge of a hungry Vampire. She sighed before addressing the obvious leader. “I know you’re not on your own so why not call out your little friends and we can get this party started?”
“Party? Hey, guys, we’ve got a livewire here.” The man guffawed, bending over for a moment as laughter erupted. “So you want to party with us, little lady?”
She shook her head sadly as two other men appeared, staring at her with lust and hunger on their faces. “You misunderstood my definition of party, big guy. Let me explain. This can go one of two ways. You and your men,” her arm arced around to take in the other two standing in the shadows, “can leave me in peace and let me pass. Or, and looking at you I’m guessing this is the way it’ll play out. I kill you all. Simple.”
The main man stood straighter, showing off his bulk as he stepped closer. “You’re goin’ to kill us? All three of us? You’re aware that we’re Vampires, aren’t you? But just what the fuck are you? I can’t quite make up my mind.”
“Yes, yes, and none of your damn business.” She snapped out, waiting to see who’d make the first move. The large one, the leader, flicked a finger at one of the others still in the shadows.
Her eyes flitted towards him, her arm moving with lightning speed and retrieving her katana. Brandishing the long blade in front of her as the smaller Vampire sped towards her. She tracked his movements, knowing a nano-second in advance his intentions. She stood calmly, waiting until he was within reach, then weaved her sword in an impossibly fast arc towards him.
The razor sharp blade relieved the Vamp of his head, quickly, cleanly, and with ease. His body collapsed to the ground with a soft thud, his dark blood seeping into the hard-packed earth beneath him. She didn’t give his body a second glance as she took up a defensive stance, her knees bending and her sword now before her, held in both hands as she smirked at the leader.
“What the fuck?” He cursed, motioning again at the other Vampire to attack.
This one was faster but she was ready, her blade slashing through the air to slice across his thigh as she spun around to miss his grasping fingers. The sword passed all the way through, causing him to fall onto his other knee. Her blade glinted in the moonlight as she quickly slashed down fiercely, decapitating him in an instant. Pulling her blade free before she eyed the larger man, seeing his fury seething inside.
“What are you?” he ground out between clenched teeth.
“Again, none of your business.” She grinned at him, her eyes flashing with anger. “You’ve missed the most important question. Not what I am, but who I am.”
He didn’t respond other than to roar as he flashed towards her. She stepped forward, away from the two dead bodies and waited. As he drew nearer she dashed to the side impossibly fast, twirling her blade above her head as she went. A hiss of anger from the Vampire as she sliced downwards and into the back of his knee.
She gave him credit. He didn’t slow down, only cursing loudly as he whirled around to come after her again. Once more she danced out of his reach, her blade inflicting even more damage as he tried to get his hands on her. Not happening.
“I’ll fucking rip you apart and drink you dry!” His rage clear in the roar as he stumbled up onto his feet.
“Nope.” She shook her head.
This time she wove out of his grasp, bringing her blade backwards, the tip of her blade sinking in and piercing his lower back, severing the spine and causing his large body to collapse. Not a death blow. He was a Vampire and if left alone the wound would heal, but she wasn’t leaving him alive to hunt her down. Stepping over to him she flicked her hair over her shoulder as he stared at her.
“Who are you?” he finally asked.
Staring down at him totally emotionless she answered. “If you’d asked that first then maybe, just maybe, you and your men might’ve survived this little dance. Me? I’m The Black Rose.” She winked at him before raising her blade to end him. Seeing the recognition in his eyes a second before she tore his head from his body. “Another one bites the dust.” She sang as she wiped her blade on his clothes before returning it to its sheath.

mouse_zpsa97eb0d4OMG IF YOU THOUGHT J K ROWLING WAS                                         GOOD THEN YOU HAVE TO READ THIS AMAZING SERIES!!

I received an ARC of each of these books of the SPEARWOOD ACADEMY, from the amazing -talented and magical Author A. S. Orn-in exchange for an honest opinion. This is Mismousey’s very honest opinion of each of these books.

I was very honored to have been asked to read and review this exciting series. Ms. Orn has a very creative imagination -one that she has taken her pen to paper . In the process of doing so- she has created the next best series to Harry Potter!. And I have read them all. Ms. Orn writing style is like that of J. K. Rowling – she can draw a young person into the story and hold their attention all through the book. Once you start reading you find yourself in the world of magic -dragons-humans( or you think they are)-outcast along with a whole lot more. This is my first time reading anything that this fantastic author has written. My goodness the way in which I devoured these books- I have to say. I can hardly wait for more books from Ms. Orn.

In Spearwood Academy Book 1- we are introduced to a young teenager who is having bad growing pains. Her and her father live on an Apple Orchard farm.  Avalon and her father work on this farm together with some hired hands. Now her birthday is coming up -once a year she gets to have a cake with thick rich chocolate frosting. YUMMY ( can the mouse have some please? who else would like a slice?)  she her father doesn’t believe in sweets being in the house except for once a year on her special day.

Avalon as she has been told by her father was abandoned by her parents. And he found her. Since he has no family – Ed decided to raise her as his own. But there is one little difference with Avalon. She changes at night. Yup that’s right. As she has grown her form that she changes into gets larger and larger. So now at night , Avi ( as she likes to be called) gets locked in the barn at night. Soon she will even out grow it. This special girl changes into a Dragon with GOLD SCALES!

What Avi doesn’t realize is that for the past few years she has been receiving packages from the Academy ( yup there’s that owl from Hogwarts dropping in). On her birthday your father -Ed has a surprise for her. She will be leaving for Spearwood Academy. They have been after him for the past few years. Now he is gonna send her to it. He thinks that this is the best thing for her. As she is going through a lot of pain when she changes. They are suppose to help with that and to teach her what she needs to know about herself , along with where she came from.

Now the fun begins- Spearwood is a school made of all BOYS! They have never seen a girl before. Let alone one that when she changes it hurts. They welcome her- give her tour of the school.

But things are not as they seem. Something is amiss. They say that the governors get rid of the weak and those that are born of outcast.

Spearwood Bk 1 has a lot twist and turns in it. So many that you are kept on the edge of your seat reading it. Now to find out what happens to Avalon you are gonna have to read this amazing book. AND IT’S FREE RIGHT NOW!! Try BOOK 1 and you are hooked! Then GO AND GET THE REST OF SPEARWOOD ACADEMY TO FIND OUT WHAT HAPPENS TO AVALON & HER FRIENDS DURING HER TIME THERE.


About the Author

A.S. Oren

I never really know how I should write these things. Do I go the professional, but boring route and talk about myself in the third person (which feels unnatural), or do I do first person, like a dating site? Sadly, second person doesn’t work here, that would be cool.

Something like:
You are looking at the profile of GoodReads author A.S. Oren. You know she is a cat person, and owns three of the little fuzzy things.

I digress. I live in Colorado, born and raised here all my life. Like you read above, I have three cats and want a big dog (perhaps an Alaskan Malamute).

I love writing, it’s one of the few things I get joy out of and know I’m good at. I’ve been doing it off and on since I could draw and think I was writing words with backwards sevens and squiggle lines.

I currently work as a graphic artist and editor.

Feel free to friend me or message. I like getting to know other people who like reading and writing, too.
