From Origins by Mary Ting COVER REVEAL!!!





Skylar, Mason, and the other descendants embark a deadly quest to the underworld to confront the evil Hades, who has been plotting to kill off the descendants of all the gods.

On this journey, they soon discover that the ancient gods are not dead as once believed but are held captive in a secret location. In order to save the world from destruction at the hands of Hephaestus, the descendants must set out on a crusade to rescue the gods.

In the process, Skylar learns more about her bloodline and her powers, but there is also a heavy price to pay. The darkest forces known to man are about to return to reclaim their stolen kingdom. 



TEASER

Seeing nothing but darkness through door one heightened my awareness, and the mist that slowly crept out like thin layer of clouds, spreading and covering our feet, brought another level of fright. The ground started to shake, then a sound like thunder boomed, getting louder…louder…until it sounded more like a stampede.

My imagination got the best of me as I envision buffaloes charging for us. Roaring sounds burst in the air when a dozen of the Cerberuses tried to charge through at once. I would have preferred the buffaloes, but instead, we got Hades’s guard dogs.

Their glowing red eyes were what I saw first, then their vampire like teeth, and last three heads to a body. With serpent’s heads on the tips of their tales and lion like claws, they looked like they could rip us to shreds as they dashed for us as if we were a gourmet meal.

“Cerberus. I should have guessed.” Zara quaked, standing next to Tara. Extending both of their arms up, they were creating a shied. Blazing light engulfed us.

“You should have guessed sooner, but I don’t think it would have mattered.” Nick’s eyes glowed, ready to fight. “Here puppy, puppy. Let’s play.”

Review: One of the Guys by Lisa Aldin

One of the Guys by Lisa Aldin
Published Date: February 10, 2015
Publisher: Spencer Hill Press
Genre: YA

The Story: Tomboy to the core, Toni Valentine understands guys. She'll take horror movies, monster hunts and burping contests over manicures. So Toni is horrified when she's sent to the Winston Academy for Girls, where she has to wear a skirt and learn to be a "lady" while the guys move on without her. Then Toni meets Emma Elizabeth, a girl at school with boy troubles, and she volunteers one of her friends as a pretend date. Word spreads of Toni’s connections with boys, and she discovers that her new wealthy female classmates will pay big money for fake dates. Looking for a way to connect her old best friends with her new life at school, Toni and Emma start up Toni Valentine’s Rent-A-Gent Service.  But the business meets a scandal when Toni falls for one of her friends--the same guy who happens to be the most sought-after date. With everything she's built on the line, Toni has to decide if she wants to save the business and her old life, or let go of being one of the guys for a chance at love.

My Review:  This book was a great break from all the sci-fi books I've been reading lately!  I liked that it totally reminded me of when I was growing up.  I was a tomboy myself, always easier to get along with guys than it was the girls.  Which is also what Toni feels.  It was so funny to read her reaction to being sent to an all girls school!  I don't think I could even imagine that!

This book is such an easy read, it's not overly stuffed with words and the whole storyline flows very well!



About the Author:
Lisa Aldin graduated from Purdue University with a B.A. in English Literature. She now lives in Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband and daughter. ONE OF THE GUYS is her debut novel.

Excerpt:

One month later, I’m sitting in a brightly lit classroom at the Winston Academy for Girls. My dad used to joke that the day I wore a skirt would be the day the zombie apocalypse rolled into town. Two hours in and I have yet to see a zombie, but I do feel like the living dead. Someone bathed in raspberry perfume this morning, causing a war to rage inside my nostrils. I might fall to the floor and convulse, the smell’s that thick.

Maybe it’s not the perfume. Maybe I’m allergic to all this estrogen.

“You okay?” the girl next to me whispers.

I respond by covering my mouth and sneezing so hard that a giant wad of snot lands in the palm of my hand. Carefully, I move my hand under the desk and smile.

“Fine,” I reply. “Just tired.”

The girl chews on a strand of her honey-colored hair as she attempts to write down every word of the lecture. A leather day planner rests at the edge of her desk, a name embroidered in pink curly letters at the bottom: Emma Elizabeth Swanson.

I’m definitely not in public school anymore.

Our Business Mathematics teacher pity-smiles at me from behind her glasses and dives into a discussion about supply and demand. I continue to wonder what I should do with the snot on my palm. If I were sitting beside one of the guys at Burlington High, like I should be this year, the snot wouldn’t be an issue. I would wipe it on Cowboy, the least likely of the group to retaliate, and laugh.

But what would a “lady” do?

Here at Winston, boys feel as mythical and mysterious as unicorns. There’s no sign of them anywhere. No obnoxious belches. No stupid high- fives. No talk of monster hunting. It’s unsettling, like I’m walking among a race of polite aliens wearing plaid jumpers and lip gloss.

How am I supposed to survive a year on another planet?

 A plan born of desperation…

Once the toast of society, Grace Cabot and her sisters now await the shame of losing high status and fine luxuries upon the death of the Earl of Beckington. The dire circumstances are inevitable unless, of course, Grace's wicked plot to seduce a wealthy viscount into marriage goes off without a single hitch. But once a stolen embrace with the wrong man leads her to be discovered in the arms of Jeffrey, the Earl of Merryton, her plan takes a most unexpected—and scorching—twist.

Governed by routine and ruled by duty, Jeffrey had no desire for a wife before he succumbed to Grace's temptation. Though his golden-haired, in-name-only bride is the definition of disorder, he can't resist wanting her in every way. But once her secrets meet his, society might consider their lives to be ruined beyond repair…while Jeffrey might just see it as a new beginning.

Books Complete Me’s interview Questions for Julia London

1.     If you could spend Valentine's Day with any book character, who would it be and why?

My first instinct was Mr. Darcy until I remembered that he would probably be disdainful of my very pedestrian life.  So I think I’d rather share the day with George Easton from The Trouble with Honor.  I like a guy who pulls himself up by his bootstraps.  And he would be able to take as good as he gave, so I think it would be a fun sexy day.

2. What was the best Valentine's Day you've had?

When I was much younger, a special guy took me to New York City for a Valentine’s Day weekend.  I think it was one of the first times I’d ever been to New York and I had a blast.  There was dinner and a play and then drinks…and, well, you can guess the rest.  I’ve had many Valentine Days since then, and I’ve enjoyed most of them, but that one stands out.

3. All expenses paid, where would you want to spend Valentine's Day, and why?

The location doesn’t matter to me as much as the company.  With the right man, I’d be perfectly happy at home on Valentine’s Day.  I like to imagine Valentine’s Day in some remote location where there is no one else around but me and him.  Except for the guy who must be nearby to bring the champagne and chocolate.  But then that guy should quietly disappear and let us enjoy the champagne and chocolate.  Maybe a private island.  Yeah, that’s it—a private island J

4. What's the best romantic movie to watch with a special someone?

Sleepless in Seattle!  They don’t make them like that anymore. 

5. What's the best romantic movie to watch by yourself?


Back to Mr. Darcy.  I absolutely adore Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth.  But that is one of those movies I could not bear to watch with some man sitting next to me and asking, “What’d he say?” and “Why is he dressed like that?” and “Oh my God, that’s how they danced?”  Yeah, no—that would ruin one of the most romantic movies for me, so I would watch that one by myself.  Or with other women who get it.
