Author: KaSonndra Leigh

Author of the Lost Immortals Saga and the Seraphine Trilogy, I'm also a mother, blogger, reader, gardener, home renovator, and a slayer of Egyptian mummies in Tomb Raider. I believe in karma, coffee, and seriously wish that the producers of Xena would bring my favorite show ever back.

I was born in the race-car city of Charlotte, NC, and now live in the City of Alchemy and Medicine, NC, when I'm not hanging out in Bardonia (Lost Immortals). Most of my characters are based on people that I've met throughout my travels and adventures. People tend to stop and start conversations with me as if I've known them my entire life. Does this freak me out? Not really. My mom says that one day I'll get kidnapped by one of them. I told her that if it weren't for these lovely people then I wouldn't be able to create the stories that I do.

I have many favorite authors but there are some who truly rock my socks: Octavia Butler, Anne Rice, Kami Garcia, J.K. Rowling, Dean Koontz (on his good-book days), Stephen King (same as DK) Ann Radcliffe, Mary Shelley, Elizabeth Kostova, and so many more...

Some other common tidbits...hmm. I've watched the movie Under the Tuscan Sun almost 200 times. Seriously, the way I see it is if I keep watching it enough, then suddenly the house that Diane Lane lives in will magically appear in my backyard. I know. I have a huge imagination!

Review: The Crescendo by KaSonndra Leigh

Check out my review of The Prelude (A Musical Interlude #1) Check out my review of An Aria in Venice (A Musical Interlude #1.5) “We’ve now survived our Crescendo.” The Prelude was one of my favorite reads of 2013 and I adored An Aria in Venice. I wanted to see what becomes of Alek and Erin. The plot of The Crescendo was much faster-paced than that of The Prelude. This installment to the series had three times more action. In this novel, Alek is dealing with a constant threat against Erin with his father and his old gang lords returning to Milan. This, of course, complicated things in a somewhat violent way. On top of that, Nikolai disappeared to work for a notoriously known bad guy and Erin’s ex-boyfriend, the one that had made her swear off men altogether, has returned. Add all of this up and you have a plot that barely even allows you a chance to breathe. Erin was tough in this novel. She had to be. She was basically being preyed upon by someone who has a reputation for being deadly. However, she was also insecure in this novel. It was understandable, the reasons she was, but it was sad to see such a strong character having to go through the doubts that she did. She was supportive of Alek and just wanted him to let […]

Blog Tour Review: An Aria in Venice by KaSonndra Leigh

Check out my review of The Prelude (A Musical Interlude #1) “‘After all the crazy shit you just heard, you’re still willing to take a chance on me?’ he asks, closing the distance between us. ‘Everybody deserves to have someone who believes in them,’ I answer, keeping my gaze locked inside his.” “Life doesn’t always wind up fixing itself and leaving a happy ending that comes complete with a boat made out of gold waiting to carry its passengers off into the sunset.” I loved The Prelude and couldn’t wait to read Adriana’s story! This novel follows Adriana, Alek’s sister, as she fights her long-standing affection of Nikolai and her growing feelings for Luca. I really enjoyed the plot and pacing of this novel. It focused on the romance, primarily, but it also had some other elements thrown in that made it all them ore interesting. This novel runs parallel to The Prelude, so we also see some of Alek as her is pursuing Erin. This novel kept me enraptured for the whole book. It was a really interesting read. Adriana was the female protagonist in this novel. I liked her. She was a very different character than Erin, the lead in The Prelude. I loved that Leigh was able to make two completely different characters that I loved equally in their own ways. Adriana was kind, slightly rebellious, adventurous, […]

Review: The Prelude by KaSonndra Leigh

Favorite Quote(s): “At the end of my song, the Maestro strolls toward me and holds a bouquet of yellow roses up to my face. The scent is as airy and fresh as the color on the flowers. A small box sits on top. ‘For the star of my show and my life,’ he says in a deeply accented way that drives me insane. He wears his hair slicked back and the tapered design of the tuxedo shows off his well-toned frame. He’s totally stunning today.” “‘Bring my son back to me, Erin. I have faith in your love for him. Thousands of miles couldn’t separate you. Or time, or even my schemes. What’s all this but just a tiny hitch in the grand scheme of things that has been set up for the two of you?’” Favorite Character: Alek. He had an accent, was hot, and was completely swoon worthy! First Line: “If I draw this guy’s face wrong one more time, I swear I’m just going to throw the damn pad out the window.” My Musings: The thing I love about self published works is that you get to discover absolutely amazing novels that aren’t very well known, and then get to share them with the world. The Prelude by KaSonndra Leigh was a diamond amongst self published novels. I am so glad that I was given the opportunity to […]
