About the Book:

Every gift has consequences . . .

From USA Today bestselling author Tawdra Kandle comes the first book in an intriguing series filled with magic and suspense. Readers of the Twilight books and the Black Mage series will fall in love with the secrets of this small town and its mystical inhabitants . . .

Tasmyn Vaughn didn't expect much when her dad's job moved them to a small town in Florida; it was just another new school. But King is a town founded by magic and steeped in mystery, and soon Tasmyn's ability to hear others' thoughts is the least of her worries. 

There's Ms. Lacusta, the science teacher who just might be teaching more than chemistry, and then there's Nell Massler, the ultimate mean girl whose extracurricular activities include blood rituals. And she wants Tasmyn's blood next.

Entangled in a web of first love, quirky and secretive townsfolk, magic and blood spells, she discovers the town's secrets aren't just bizarre, they're deadly. 

Save Tomorrow is a series of paranormal romances that begins in the small town of King, Florida, winds through the Serendipity and Recipe for Death books, and finally culminates in Age of Aquarius, the inevitable showdown that ties all the characters together in a fight to stop the ultimate evil.

My Review:

I'm a little late posting this review, but back in October as I was getting ready for Halloween, I was ready to read about witches and all that occult stuff!  I really like Tawdra Kandle's writing, so when I saw that I had missed this King series, I was ready to dig in!  Tawdra creates memorable characters with multi-faceted personalities.

The whole occult thing was not overwhelming to the story.  I mean that in a very good way.  There was sweet romance between Tasmyn and Michael that gave me tingles and warmed my heart.

Tasmyn is a 17-year-old high school junior who has moved more times than she can count, making it very difficult to make friends.  Add in the fact that she has the ability to read minds, a secret that her parents have warned her must remain secret, and Tasmyn had one more reason why it was difficult to make friends.  Then along comes Michael, a high school senior, who instantly falls in love with Tasmyn and opens her world to more happiness than Tasmyn had ever experienced.  Yes, sweet, sweet romance!

Although Tasmyn tries her best to block out hearing other peoples thoughts, she is shocked to accidently hear something about a blood sacrifice from someone in her new chemistry class.  A girl named Nell in that class brings the term "mean girl" to a whole new height!  There is something very strange about the old family residents of this town.

The storyline was great in this book and the characters were remarkable.  Quite frankly, if I were a teenager I would be swooning over Michael.  The story dragged just a bit with some excessive dialogue and teenage stuff (after all, this is YA so that's to be expected), but it all came together to be the start of an interesting series.

Oh!  Let me add one more thing.  Right now the Kindle version of this Book #1 is free on Amazon.  So if this series sounds interesting to you, grab your copy now while it's still free.

About the Author:


Tawdra Kandle writes romance, in just about all its forms. She loves unlikely pairings, strong women, sexy guys, hot love scenes and just enough conflict to make it interesting. Her books include young adult and new adult paranormal romance, new adult and adult contemporary romance and adult paramystery romance. She lives in central Florida with a husband, kids, sweet pup and too many cats. And yeah, she rocks purple hair.
