Nocturnal/Nightmare by Chelsea Cameron Noctalis Blog Tour Reviews/Scavenger Hunt

Nocturnal Synopsis:
Seventeen-year-old Ava-Claire Sullivan isn't one for doing the expected. Especially when she finds out her mother's cancer is terminal. After a crying session in the local cemetery where she's attacked by one strange guy and saved by another, she doesn't call the cops. Because those guys definitely weren't your average hooligans.

And the one who sort-of saved her? Well, he's odd. He doesn't seem to breathe or smile or have anything better to do than wait in the cemetery for Ava to come back. Which she does. Call it morbid curiosity. Even after he warns her that he's dangerous, she can't stop wanting to see him, talk to him, be with him.

There's something about Peter that provides a much-needed escape from her mother's diagnosis and her tenuous relationship with her father. Even her best friends Jamie and Texas don't know what it's like to face death. But Peter does. He already has. He also made a promise a long time ago that could destroy both of them.

When everything in your life is falling apart, what are you willing to give up to hold onto the one thing that could last forever?

Nocturnal Review:
All I have to say is talk about throwing all the curve ball out there right at the beginning! I think the start of this book was the most emotionally intense scene that I have read as a first chapter. Holy moly! The first lines grabbed me and had me locked on for the duration. There is no turning back once you read that first paragraph! You just can't! It's impossible! Now...onto the story itself... I really loved the story line, the writing style of the author, and the descriptions that she gave throughout the book. The choice of characters was interesting and had me wondering what was going to be introduced in Book 2 once I was nearing the end. If you're looking for a fast paced, interesting read, THIS is the series for you!
Nightmare (The Noctalis Chronicles, #2)Nightmare Synopsis:
Ava-Claire Sullivan still doesn't follow the rules. She shouldn't have let Peter Claim her, turning her into his own personal blood bank. She shouldn't have told Tex Peter was immortal because now her best friend won't shut up about hooking up with Peter's equally immortal brother, Viktor. And she shouldn't have fallen in love with Peter.

Too late.

Sometimes, love kills. One promise Peter made nearly a hundred years ago could do it. A kiss, a touch could be the end of him. So all she has to do is not let him fall in love with her. Easier said than done.

But Ava's going to find a way for him to be free, even if it kills her. Or makes her immortal. There's no way she's losing Peter in addition to her mother. No freaking way.

What would you do when the one you love would die if they loved you back?

Nightmare Review:
I was lucky enough to be able to read this book and the first in the series back to back. After the ending in Nocturnal, I don't think I could have waited for Nightmare to come out. The author is most definitely the "Cliffhanger Queen" during this series! Book 1 had me chomping at the bit waiting for the few hours until I could read Book 2 and now it has me waiting for Book 3! There is so much action in this series that I can hardly contain my excitement as I'm writing this. I'm so in love with this series that I'm finding it really hard not to give spoilers for this review! So I guess all I will say is that if you don't even attempt to pick up Nocturnal, you are just downright crazy! You won't be able to resist me on this one ;)
