The Devil's Metal Blog Tour *Review & Giveaways

Book Blurb:

It’s the summer of 1974 and 21-year old Dawn Emerson has only three things she wants to do: compete one last time in the Ellensburg Rodeo, win back her ex-boyfriend Ryan, and become the best damn music journalist at Central Washington University. But all her plans are left in the dust when she’s contacted by Creem magazine to go on the road with one of her favorite groups, the up-and-coming metal band, Hybrid.

At first the assignment reads like a dream come true. Not only will Dawn land some much-needed credibility as a female music journalist, but she'll finally get to experience life from the other side of the stage, and maybe crack the drunken, enigmatic code that is guitarist Sage Knightly. Instead, Dawn finds herself on an aging tour bus filled with ego-maniacs, band politics and a whole lot of sex, drugs and rock n’ roll. When monsters start showing up in dressing rooms and some of Sage’s groupies become increasingly strange and dangerous, Dawn discovers the band is not only going places – they’re going straight to Hell.

And Dawn has a backstage pass.

One wild ass ride! Great story with heat, action, drugs and ROCK N ROLL! This is such an amazingly well written story, from the get go you are in. There is a perfect balance between the band, the actual characters themselves, the backstage antics, and the expertly woven plot. Want to get an inside view of life on the road with a band in the 70's well look no further... Karina puts you smack in the middle of all the shiz!

Dawn : She is stumbling and trying to get her foot in the door with the music industry as a music journalist. While her ex-boyfriend is still on her mind and she is fixing to retire from the rodeo... she gets the opportunity she's been waiting for. This girl was just FanFreakintastic! I adored her from the start. She is a straight up fan. She has backbone when she needs it and other times she just a shy girl. I love how real she was written in this book.

The Band: Ah-Maz-ing! These guys and gal were all out Rock Stars! 

Sage : oh HOT DAUM! I was drawn into him just as Dawn was... Everything she felt and thought about him became what a part of what I thought of him. He is a leader, a Giant freakin star and not at all what you would expect. Just Better!

I love how none of the relationships that Karina writes are just *swoon* fall into you kinda deals.. although I really enjoy those as well... Her's are special. The characters have flaws, real ones and the the building of the relationship is natural and well executed. The Characters have depth and are built up right in the story, it's amazing to read!

Groupies.. must be mentioned b/c hell what is a Rock n Roll band with out some Far Out groupies?? Well these are way freakin wicked! There is something way the hell off about certain ones in this book... and it will creep you out! Karina is amazing with the creep factor she puts just enough in to make you wanna sleep with the lights on and check under your damn bed!
