BLOG TOUR, INTERVIEW, & REVIEW: PENUMBRA BY LOGAN PATRICKS


In one night, I lost everything: my hopes and dreams, my best friend, and Shadow’s heart. He told me he loved me, but it was just a lie. The Midnight Society has fallen, reduced to ashes by a monster--a person whom we all once trusted. The betrayal has shattered our lives forever and Shadow, Lord of the Midnight Society, finds himself at a crossroad. One road leads him further down the path of vengeance, filled with unending violence and dead bodies. The other road leads to me. However, our path to happiness is paved with broken glass and razorblades, and at some point, one of us is going to fall.

REVIEW:

Logan Patricks picks up almost exactly where we ended in Semblance...in the immediate aftermath of the murder of almost all of the Midnight Society. Things are tense: Shadow's not handling it well and shutting everyone (including Aria) out, Aria and Lincoln are feeling enormous guilt over the murders of friends, and Calisto is still out there, apparently walking free while they are all in hiding.

This novel is filled with action (haha and not just the sexy stuff, although that's there too), we get a little more back story on the Midnight Society, and several new characters are introduced. I have a sneaking suspicion that these characters will become important in the third installment of this series...if the ending is any clue to the intrigue going on.

Do we get more of Shadow + Aria? Of course. They're not exactly as chummy as they were in Semblance...and it's definitely complicated...and that's all I'll say.

What about Lincoln? Poor Lincoln. <---you'll see ...you'll get an eye-full, too. 

Calisto? Sinister. Wily. Awful.

Assassins? Of course!

..and much, much more. The humor is still there, traveling to different places, and music also tends to tinge almost every chapter; all things we enjoyed so much in the first book.

Will you want to perhaps fuss at Logan Patricks for some of the ways he tortures his characters (and so..basically, us)? Ummm yeah. And once again he leaves us with a very interesting ending. LOGAN YOU ARE KILLING US!!! 

Happy reading, y'all. Can't wait to hear what you think about it!

A BRIEF INTERVIEW WITH LOGAN PATRICKS:

For those who don't follow you on twitter/fb/ or you blog, could you please tell us/them 
your plans for this series?

At the moment I have the series planned for 4 books, though who knows?
 I might pull a George RR Martin  and expand it if I find I have too much story to tell.
 Right now I'm plotting out book 3, and let me tell you,  poop is seriously going to hit the fan.

Is there any scene in either of the books that you'd like to inhabit..to physically be there to see 
the action or be a part of the action?

Actually, a lot of the scenes I write in books are drawn from my own personal experiences 
(aside from all the crazy action, violence and twisted mindf*cks). All the parts of the books
 I'd want to experience, I've done it already =D.

Does you ever consult your wife on scenes that you're writing? Or book covers?
Or images that you use on FB?

Nope, I always leave everything as a big surprise in the end. Usually when I'm working, 
I've super secretive, and it's not until something's completely finished that I show it off.

What's surprised you (or has anything surprised you) about the response to Semblance?  

How amazing all my readers are! My community of readers are such a supportive one, even going 
so far as to create a fanpage dedicated to the Midnight Society series (Thanks ladies!).
 I couldn't ask for better readers.

Do the characters and scenes come to you in images, music, lines of text or are you a planner..
and you plan everything out? All of the above? None of the above?

I have plan, and half write scenes spontaneously. Usually I have 3 chapters planned out at a given time 
along with how I want the book to end. The dialogue, action, descriptions are all written spontaneously.

Has your writing process changed at all from Semblance to Penumbra..has it come as easily as the first one?

My writing process remains the same, but my editing process has drastically changed. 
Whereas I used to print out the entire manuscript and edit it with a red pen, and then retype it all over again, 
now I just do all my editing in my word document. Saves me a lot of time!

Is there a question you've always wanted to be asked...and if so, what is it and what's your answer?

-Would you like 1 billion dollars, no strings attached?
- Why yes, I would.

Any questions for your readers?

What are you wearing right now?

Finish this thought...when you hit "publish" you feel....
Like thrusting my hips with the energy of a Tazmanian Devil.

...and finally, can you share one new thing with your readers that they wouldn't
already know from reading your blog or any of your social media?

Hmmm...the name of the third book in the Midnight Society series begins with the
letter "R".


Welcome to the world of the Midnight Society


Logan Patricks Bio 

Logan discovered both love and heartbreak at the tender age of seven, when the pretty little blue-eyed girl next door stole his Kit-Kat bar and shared it with the bad boy from across the street. Devastated, Logan found solace by escaping into imaginary worlds he forged with words, creating kingdoms where the chivalrous knight always got the princess. Twenty three years later Logan spends his days in a suit and tie, working for the government on matters of network security. However his thoughts never strayed too far from the incendiary nature of love — the passionate fire that’s both scintillating and dangerous. Obsessed with exploring the steamy and mysterious side of human nature, Logan continues to create worlds filled with thrills, mystery, and of course, sex.
