Blurb: 

War is coming between humans and Arvies, leaving me trapped between two enemies. This time, I don’t think I’ll survive.

The government will stop at nothing to get me back in their clutches. They want what’s inside me—a power I call Venge—and will use my greatest weakness to bring me to my knees. 


The Arvies know of my gift, and use my telepathy and their numbers, in an effort to take me out. 


My name is Abigail Park, and I promise retribution against those who’ve wronged me, even if it’s the last thing I do.

An ancient Hopi myth says people arrived on tiny silver pods that fell
from the sky.
But the truth is far more terrifying.
Two-hundred fifty-eight teens are sent from a dying Earth to a
terraformed Mars as part of the Emergence Program, mankind’s last hope before
solar flares finish off their planet and species. Among the brave pioneers are
sixteen-year-old Joey Westen and her twin brother, Jesse.
After only minutes in space, something triggers a total ship lock down.
With the help of their roommates, the Matsuda twins (notorious hackers
and shady secret-keepers), Joey and Jesse stumble onto an extremist plot to
sabotage the Emergence Program.
But Joey and Jesse didn’t travel to the deepest pits of space and leave
their mother behind to be picked off in a high-tech tin can. They’ll lie, hack,
and even kill to survive the voyage and make it to Mars.


Excerpt:
Beads of sweat formed between Winslow’s palm and the device, but he held
tight. All his screens, which provided invaluable data, sat as black as the
infinite cosmos before him. Flying blind, in ancient throughways created by …
only God knows who—it unsettled and disturbed the mind. 
 
However, the bowed
windshield provided him a spectacular view without the instrument panel aglow.
Leaning over, he searched for the orange glimmer of Earth, but after
ninety minutes in hyper drive, the scorched planet was far from view. The
bright streaks of distant stars overshadowed any hope of glimpsing home.
 
“Do you really think that woman can stop the … ” Natalia glanced around
then leaned in to whisper, “attack.”
 
“We’ve made it farther than all the other expeditions. That gives me
hope,” he replied softly.
 
“We had a great run though, didn’t we?” Natalia smirked as she tucked a
stray hair behind her ear. 
“Remember that time—”
 
“This sounds an awful lot like a goodbye speech, Kozlov.”
 
“Ooh, Kozlov,” Natalia drawled. “You haven’t called me by my last name
since I was a cadet. Geez, you must be serious.”
 
“We have to have faith.” Winslow looked to the men and women stationed at
the far end of the control room, then to the shining rod in his grasp. “The
human race can’t end with us; we’ve come too far. We have to persevere.”
 
“You know. After you told me about the other ships, I almost resigned
from this voyage.” Natalia turned her chair from the control panel, facing him.
“Do you know why I didn’t?”
 
Winslow clicked his chair around, staring at Natalia. A pink tinge
flushed her cheeks, her nails drumming out a steady beat on the armrest. She
looked so anxious. Risky test flights, solar flares, bombs, nothing shook her
nerve so far. Yet right now, her lips trembled.
 
“I’m in love with you, Gerald. If we’re gonna die in thirty minutes, I
thought you should at least know that.” Her eyes darted away, and she repositioned
her seat.
 
His jaw dropped open. He tried to speak, but his words bunched in his
throat. Natalia stole a glance and a hard thump rattled his chest. He never
noticed that sparkle in her blue eyes, which gleamed against her olive skin,
until now.
 
A wisp of brown hair fell from behind her ear, and his heart skipped
faster. He looked to his watch, his hold on the jammer tightening. Only twenty
minutes left. What-ifs and could-bes didn’t much matter anymore, these were
most likely his final moments.

 

 
He unfastened his safety belt, scooting to the edge of his seat. A smile
threatened to invade his lips, but he held a straight face. The shuffle of
crewmembers faded as he pulled the lever beneath Natalia’s seat, spinning her
chair to gaze upon her face. An unexpected flutter ran through his stomach with
her stare, her smirk. It drew him in, brought him to one knee. Their lips found
each other, and he kissed her, softly, under the glow of starlight.

A Boy Called Bat

For Bixby Alexander Tam (nicknamed Bat), life tends to be full of surprises—some of them good, some not so good. Today, though, is a good-surprise day. Bat’s mom, a veterinarian, has brought home a baby skunk, which she needs to take care of until she can hand him over to a wild-animal shelter.

But the minute Bat meets the kit, he knows they belong together. And he’s got one month to show his mom that a baby skunk might just make a pretty terrific pet.

Jan’s Review

I read this with my 12 year old son and he thoroughly enjoyed the story as he saw some traits of himself in Bixby.  My son also loves animals and he is very curious if their gonna be more story from this author about the adventures of Bat and Thor.  He thought that it was very unique that the author included a real live expert on skunks in her story and not some fictional person.  He like that their was also cute drawings included in the book and that the chapters he felt were just the right length for this kind of story.  We appreciate being able to review and share this book with the world.

Arc Review The Last Magician by Lisa Maxwell

30312855

Stop the Magician.
Steal the book.
Save the future.

In modern day New York, magic is all but extinct. The remaining few who have an affinity for magic—the Mageus—live in the shadows, hiding who they are. Any Mageus who enters Manhattan becomes trapped by the Brink, a dark energy barrier that confines them to the island. Crossing it means losing their power—and often their lives.

Esta is a talented thief, and she’s been raised to steal magical artifacts from the sinister Order that created the Brink. With her innate ability to manipulate time, Esta can pilfer from the past, collecting these artifacts before the Order even realizes she’s there. And all of Esta’s training has been for one final job: traveling back to 1902 to steal an ancient book containing the secrets of the Order—and the Brink—before the Magician can destroy it and doom the Mageus to a hopeless future.

But Old New York is a dangerous world ruled by ruthless gangs and secret societies, a world where the very air crackles with magic. Nothing is as it seems, including the Magician himself. And for Esta to save her future, she may have to betray everyone in the past.

Jan’s Review

I got a copy of this wonderful book through Around The World arc tours   This book sits at just over 500 pages which gives the author plenty of room to set the stage for the events that are waiting to unfold in the pages of this book.  The start of the book we jump around between the past and the present in order to lay the ground work for how the two will combine in the later parts of the book.

The story centers around the determined talented thief Esta who has the unique aspect to be able to steal anything in what appears to be the blink of the eye.  I really loved how the author enveloped us in the magical aspects of this world steeped in magic.  This is the second book i read from this author the other was Hooked.  She is very good at describing the scence and when a death occurs your heart is ripped out just like it should be.  This story had me wrapped up in it and did not want to it to end.

I like how though their no mention of a sequel on goodreads yet you know their has to be more story to tell and i am very much looking forward to what is going to happen.

All her life Fern has been told she is
blind to reality—but what if she is the only one who can truly see?
Fern Johnson is crazy. At least, that’s
what the doctors have claimed since her childhood. Now nineteen, and one step
away from a psych ward, Fern struggles to survive in bustling Los Angeles.
Desperate to appear “normal,” she represses the young man flickering at the
edge of her awareness—a blond warrior only she can see.
Tristan was Fern’s childhood imaginary
hero, saving her from monsters under her bed and outside her walls. As she grew
up and his secret world continued to bleed into hers, however, it only caused
catastrophe. But, when the city is rocked by the unexplainable, Fern is forced
to consider the possibility that this young man isn’t a hallucination after
all—and that the creature who decimated his world may be coming for hers.
Exclusive Excerpt!
CHAPTER ONE
Present Time
On television, they never tell you how
cold it is.
 
They might show you the dimly lit room
or the hard, uninviting chairs—stark reminders that you have no power here.
They may depict the lonesome table separating you from the elderly agent with
the stone-grey eyes. But those cop shows never depict what a chilly affair an
FBI interrogation truly is. If their aim is to make this process as
intimidating as possible—it’s working.
 
I wrap my hands around bare shoulders,
fingertips far colder than the skin exposed by my red tank top. Brilliant move,
Fern. Wear a scarf, but forget your jacket. Stifling a shudder, I try to meet
the sharp gaze of Agent Barstow standing rigidly across from me.
 
“I don’t know where you’re from, miss
Johnson—but in LA, state-of-the-art buildings don’t just crumble.” His voice is
gravelly, matching the jagged lines of his dark skin and weathered face. 
“Federal buildings, no less. There one minute and the next…destroyed.”
 
His tone chills me even more, and I tug
nervously on my scarf. His arms slowly unwind from his chest as he takes a
deliberate two steps toward me. “We’ve had everyone on the disaster—CIA, local
police, firemen…heck, we even called NASA. No one can find a plausible reason
why a skyscraper, in excellent repair, would collapse like that. No one, that
is, except you.”
 
I fight the urge to bolt for the door as
he leans down, palms flat on the table, so close I can make out the creases on
his dark suit. “You warned us of an attack in that area two weeks ago. How did
you know?”
 
I suck in a deep breath as his voice
lowers, dark fists tightening on the edge of the table. “Are you involved with
a terrorist organization?”
 
I almost laugh at his words, at how they
couldn’t be farther from the truth. I’m here to save LA, not destroy it. To
save everyone. And I don’t have much time—none of us do. If I can’t gain this
man’s trust, a shattered building is nothing compared to what will come next.
 
“No, sir.” I shove my shaking hands
beneath my legs as I glimpse a pair of lucid blue eyes over the agent’s
shoulder. They shouldn’t be there—and I know not to stare. But those eyes that
only I can see are the reason I warned the FBI in the first place. Their owner
the reason I’m even sitting in this room.
 
Licking my lips, I keep my attention on
Barstow. I’ve wanted this for years. Someone to listen. Really listen. And it’s
the FBI, no less. Be careful here.
 
When I open my mouth, the words are calm
and steady. I hope they’re convincing—they have to be convincing. “I knew about
the incident, Agent Barstow, because my friend warned me.” Throat suddenly dry,
I look away. “My imaginary friend.

Rose Petal Graves

by Olivia Wildenstein

Genre: Paranormal/Faeries

Release Date: March 29th 2017

Summary:

ANCIENT SECRETS CANNOT REMAIN BURIED FOREVER.


Founded two centuries ago by a powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly.


Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.


As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, new people began arriving in Rowan, unnervingly handsome and odd people. I begged them to leave, but they stayed, because their enemies—my ancestors—were beginning to awaken.

bout the Author

Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.

When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).

Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community.
