Praise for After the Fall

"Empire 1: After the Fall by Cat Marsters is an intense and absorbing story that draws the reader in on page one of the prologue. Ms. Marsters cleverly combines her futuristic setting with vampire and shapeshifter themes for a high action-adventure that slows down only long enough to blend in several highly arousing sex scenes."

-- Merrylee, Fallen Angel Reviews

"Cat Marsters has a magnificent voice. She tells a story in beautiful flowing language, with humor and pathos, adventure and love..."

Gold Star Award! -- Marcy Arbitman, Just Erotic Romance Reviews

"As Nalina and Carver run from an exceedingly despicable villain, we find ourselves holding our breath and hoping that they can make it through what seem to be impossible odds. This blend of action, emotion, sex, and just a dash of humor make Empire 1: After the Fall a very entertaining read."

-- B.D. Whitney, Book Wenches

Praise for Burning Desires

"Empire: Burning Desires by Cat Marsters is the second book in her action-packed, emotion-filled series that successfully holds the reader's attention from beginning to end. To my mind, there's nothing better than a book that runs you through a gamut of emotions, and this one certainly does that."

Five Angels! -- Merrylee, Fallen Angel Reviews

"I recommend that you make sure that your air conditioner is set on high, and that you have a big glass of ice water on hand when you read this."

-- Holly, Whipped Cream Reviews

"Empire: Burning Desires was an amazing story. The ending was true poetic justice, and very satisfying."

-- Beth Foster, PNR Reviews

"Ms. Marsters writes some very steamy, hot sex scenes with Libby and Swann and she doesn't stop there."

-- Julianne, Two Lips Reviews

Praise for City of Lust

"If you haven't read this series yet, you should. It's absolutely riveting!"

-- Merrylee, Fallen Angel Reviews

"These characters are brilliantly drawn, and emotionally charged, and I love the way Ms. Marsters keeps you guessing all the way to the end."

-- Holly, Whipped Cream Reviews

Praise for Dawn Rising

The necklace of rubies lay heavy against my collarbone, its probes already digging into my flesh. I stared at my reflection in the black window, the stones seeming to leech all the blood from my skin until I stood stark and white, angry and afraid.

At my feet lay the Emperor's dead concubine, her blood staining my hand. In the doorway were three dead Imperial soldiers.

And behind me stood John Carver, his sword still dripping.

"Well," he said, "now you've done it."

"They can't transmit from here," I said, my heart thumping. A piece of plastic slithered loose from the cracked monitor on the wall and pattered on the floor. "The EMP --"

The house shook with the force of another mortar blast, cracking the window in half. The electromagnetic pulse had killed anything with an electric circuit within a few miles, but the necklace hadn't been within that radius at the time. As soon as it went near a functioning transmitter, the Empire would know.

"Aye, well, then you can stay here out of the Emperor's grasp, and die, or you can flee, and live."

The rubies glowed in the dim light of the broken screens. I looked like a corpse standing in the wreck of my house, blue light flickering over white skin and darkening the blood on my clothes.

"He'll find me, Carver. As soon as the necklace starts transmitting, he'll find me." I glanced down at the dead woman, claw marks livid against her skin.

"You could have stopped her before she locked it around your neck," Carver said, tensing as the building shook again. He grabbed a fold of the concubine's clothing and wiped off his sword.

But I stared back at my own dark eyes, feeling tears gather. To my right was a scorched spot on the wall that I couldn't even explain to Carver. Not yet. "No. The necklace knew me, Carver. He sent it for me."

The house shook, and dust fell from the ceiling. Cracks shimmered into life on the walls, and Carver grabbed my arm and yanked me away from the window before it split open and shattered inward, toward me.

"The necklace couldn't know you," he said, dragging me toward the door. "It's never sampled your DNA before."

But I was shaking my head, tears dripping down my face as we sidestepped the rubble and ventured for the stairs. Carver didn't turn to look at me until we'd reached the bottom, and then I saw the realization come into his eyes.

"You've worn it before," he said.

The walls shook and danced, and shards of stone clattering against my back.

"I didn't realize," I whispered. "I said I'd be his if I wasn't married." And the Emperor had laughed. "Carver, I was nineteen. I thought he was joking."

Carver shook his head, eyes narrowed in disgust. The metal of his arm glinted in the moonlight. The scar across his eye twisted his face into something horrible. Carver the mercenary, Carver the taker of unwilling women, Carver the killer.

"You stupid girl," he said, but as the house shuddered and groaned, he wrapped an arm around me and sheltered me from the rubble. "Let's go."
