Cover Reveal: Lucifer by Annabell Cadiz

Synopsis: Have you ever wondered what could be hiding in the shadows?

Well, for eighteen-year-old Zahara Faraday, she doesn’t have to wonder. You see she
comes from a lineage of Light Witches, those who have chosen to help protect and
serve between the supernatural world and the human world. The only problem is
Zahara, like her father Solomon, is as human as a human being can be whereas her
mother, Mia, and her Aunt Catalina, were born as Light Witches. As a family they hunt
down rogue supernaturals—creatures who harm humans or who have committed an
act against their kingdom.

Zahara’s hunting skills are usually kept dormant since her parents would prefer she
live life as a normal human girl without knowledge of the supernatural world. She
plans on doing just that—except when she finds a couple being attacked by fairies,
she has no choice but to step in. Before she can return to pretending to be blissfully
ignorant, Zahara encounters a problem she isn’t the least equip to handle: Bryan
Hamilton, the good looking new co-worker she has to help train. In a heartbeat, her
best friend, Becca King, has set her up on a double date with herself and her new crush,
Rekesh Saint-Louis, who happens to be the most powerful leader of the biggest Imago
Coven in South Florida –supernatural creatures with the ability to control water . . .
and suck out human souls.

Zahara has no time to focus on how she’s going to explain her double date with her
best friend and the enemy they have a tentative truce with to her parents because soon
one of the members of Mia and Catalina’s coven is found murdered with a strange
tattoo of a snake with wings carved into his arm.

Zahara is then thrown into a whirlwind battle with an angel determined to have
revenge against God, an Imago coven she doesn’t think they should trust, and slew of
dream-eating fairies and powerful Nephilims, hybrid children of angels and humans,
more than happy to rip her to shreds.

Normal just got a deadlier definition.

“Care to dance?” Bryan asked, already leading Zahara to the dance floor.

She pulled him back and shook her head. “I’m the worst dancer! My feet, hips, and body
don’t know how to coordinate well together, so I wind up looking like an ostrich trying
to bust a move.”

Bryan laughed and pulled her onto the dance floor. “Whether you look like an ostrich or
a ballerina dancer, you’re still the best lookin’ one here.”

He spun her around and placed his hands on her hips, attempting slowly to move her
in the same rhythm as his own. At first Zahara’s body moved stiffly, even under Bryan’s
warm and smooth hands, which were sending shivers creeping up her spine and around
her midsection; she couldn’t stop looking around the club. Stuck in between a group of
scantily clad teenage girls who kept dropping to their knees and bouncing back up, a
giggling mass of hysteria, and a Spanish couple pressed so tightly together their dancing
came off as borderline sex, Zahara felt like an alien. Even the hyena-sounding girls–who
Zahara was pretty sure, were all buzzed and quickly heading to being drunk—moved
with more skill than she possessed.

But Bryan pressed her closer against him and placed her arms to circle his neck from
behind. He moved a little faster and Zahara fell into step, laying her head against his
shoulder and closing her eyes to drown out the crowd. She focused on the hard muscles
of Bryan’s chest, his heated breath against her hair, and his fingers gripping her waist.
She absently wondered if it was wrong that an angel was dancing inside of a club full
of youth, and if this was as weird and exhilarating for him as it was for her. Bryan spun
her around to face him and kissed her. He wasn’t as gentle as he usually was, digging his
hand into her hair and nibbling on her bottom lip. Zahara whimpered and moved her
fingers underneath his shirt, digging her fingers into his back.

Bryan pulled back and laid his forehead against Zahara’s, his breath ragged and intense
enough to set her on fire. “You’re making this difficult.”

“Making what difficult?” Zahara huffed.

“Leaving you.” Bryan closed his eyes and kissed her again.

Fun Quotes

“Enough with the games, I know what you are, Nephilim and if you make one move, I
promise I will crave you open.” ~Zahara

“You caught me, I was definitely dreaming of you. If I remember correctly, you were
frolicking on a beach, wearing a pretty skimpy red bikini and some kind of flower in
your hair. Gotta say that was the best dream I’ve ever had.” ~Bryan

“Time is endless for a being such as I. Power is the only master I trust.” ~Lucifer

“All those night long phone calls! All those secret visits to my house! All those secret
walks! And you’re fond of me! You think I’m being over dramatic! How about I break
your face open for over dramatics!” ~Becca

“Solomon, you will remember that although I agreed to ally myself and my coven with
yours, that does not mean you have any semblance of authority over me. We have a
truce, and I conduct my own actions as I see fit, whether that involves Becca or not.’

‘And you remember I will take your coven down the moment you step over the line,”
Solomon hissed.” ~Solomon and Rekesh

  1. Heyaz Cricket! Thank you so much for participating in the reveal and helping to spread the word! Also, I just wanted to let you know that the link to TeamNerd Reviews has changed to:


  2. This book sounds wonderful and hilarious. I could imagine myself as Zahara. Minding my own business pretending there is no supernatural realm, and then BAM! I'd be smack in the middle of it. I'll be checking this book out for sure. I love the cover too!

    1. Awe, yay! I'm so glad you can imagine yourself as Zahara already =D She definitely has mouth and temper on her *hehe* Her best friend Becca is just as bad as her. Those two are ridiculous together ;) And thank you for the cover love! There's going to be a blog tour for the book in FEB if you're interested in signing up. Just send me an email to cadizwriting (at) gmail (dot) com. ~Annabell

  3. This book sounds great. I think my sister would really love it. It would definitely be a hard thing to adjust to go from just being a normal teen to finding out there are supernatural beings, and that you are one yourself.

  4. @Page Turner: Awe! That's so great! I love that you can already imagine yourself as Zahara =D She's definitely got a mouth on her but Becca (Zahara's best friend) has even sarcastic mouth so I'm sure you will enjoy her humor a great deal. And thank you for the cover love! I'm pretty in love with it myself *hehe* There will be a blog tour going on for the book in FEB if you're interested in signing up, just email me at cadizwriting (at) gmail (dot) com.

    @June M: Thank you so much! Zahara isn't a supernatural being, her family just deals within the supernatural world. Where her mother and her aunt are Light Witches, she's as human as her father which makes for some painful battle scenes ;) I hope you and your sister enjoy the read when the book comes out!
