Review: Metamorphosis by Devon Ashley


Metamorphosis by Devon Ashley
Published Date: November 2011
Publisher: CreateSpace
Genre: YA

The Story: Change is not always a good thing... Some survived the battle – but not without a price. As one heart starts up again, another dies down. The pure vampires learn their immortality isn't as strong as they'd thought – the status of their hearts determines their vulnerability. And when the truth gets out, a betrayal by one of their own will cost more lives.

My Review: OMG!! Can I even say that? Metamorphosis is the second book in the immortals series, and is better than the first! There is so much action going on, and so many twists and turns. At one point, I really couldn't believe what was happening to Abby. We get to read more about Abby's dad and the relationship she had/has with him. And Emily, oh my goodness, I can't believe the changes she is going through. It's crazy, with Noel and Abby trying to help her. Not to mention the higher up vamps who are more than displeased with the whole situation. Do you want to know what happens?? Well, you are going to have to read the book to find out!!

Author Interview: Jus Accardo

We are so thrilled to have debut author Jus Accardo here with us today. Her novel, Touch, came out just a few weeks ago and is getting great reviews everywhere you look. We were lucky enough to get an interview with Jus and hope you enjoy it, but first a little about this awesome book:

Touch by Jus Accardo
Release Date: October 9, 2011
Genre: YA Paranormal

About the book: When a strange boy tumbles down a river embankment and lands at her feet, seventeen-year-old adrenaline junkie Deznee Cross snatches the opportunity to piss off her father by bringing the mysterious hottie with ice blue eyes home.

Except there’s something off with Kale. He wears her shoes in the shower, is overly fascinated with things like DVDs and vases, and acts like she’ll turn to dust if he touches her. It’s not until Dez’s father shows up, wielding a gun and knowing more about Kale than he should, that Dez realizes there’s more to this boy—and her father’s “law firm”—than she realized.

Kale has been a prisoner of Denazen Corporation—an organization devoted to collecting “special” kids known as Sixes and using them as weapons—his entire life. And, oh yeah, his touch? It kills. The two team up with a group of rogue Sixes hellbent on taking down Denazen before they’re caught and her father discovers the biggest secret of all. A secret Dez has spent her life keeping safe.

A secret Kale will kill to protect.

***Interview***

BCM: is your first novel to be published. What has your writing journey been like?

JA: The best word I can think of is surreal. Before I wrote TOUCH, I queried a book for almost a year with no interest at all. I mean, like, I got no requests. While I was waiting to hear back from the last few queries, I
debated going back and rewriting large portions of the ms, but then I got the idea for TOUCH. I started writing on June 1st and couldn't walk away until it was finished.

This is where the surreal comes in. I finished the draft, revised, and started querying by the middle of July. By the end of July, I already had 4 requests. 4! In a few weeks. I really can't say what I was expecting--but it wasn't what I got. After months and months of no thank you's, here I was getting a ton of yes, please's! It was amazing. By the end of September, I had 5 agent offers for representation. Every step along the way has been full of amazing surprises.

BCM: Your characters have unique but very cool names. How did you decide on them?

JA: Well, I apparently have a thing for names that start with D, K, and M. Sometimes S, too. I can look back to pretty much everything I've written and there's a ton of Ds, Ss, Ms, and Ks. As for the names themselves, I
had a friend named Kale and I've always loved the name. It's different and I love different.

BCM: All is not as it appears when it comes to Deznee. It's easy for readers to expect one thing from her at first, but soon we learn she's more than meets the eye. How did her character grow as you wrote Touch? Was she always as multi-layered as she is now?

JA: Dez was always a complicated character--not because I planned her that way--but because its the way she came out. She had a mind and personality all her own right from the start. It was like I'd known her for years. At first it looks like she's just a brat out for nothing more than to piss off her Dad, but as we get further along, we find out she's really just desperate for a reaction--any reaction--from him. At her core, she really
just wants to be loved. She was always multi-layered, but we really deepened things in editing. With the help of my awesome editor, Liz, Dez ended up perfect!

BCM: If you had to choose one album to listen to over and over as you wrote, what album would that be and why?

JA: Ooo this is a tough one. I don't know that I could pick just one album. Music is a huge deal to me. I have detailed playlists for each book, and for each individual character as well. My lists cover everything from
Beethoven to the Murder Dolls. Really, it totally depends on what I'm writing. Everything has it's own mood and voice.

BCM: What were some of your favorite books growing up and how did they  influence you to be the writer you are today?

JA: My first real fantasy book was The Heavenly Horse from the Outermost West by Mary Stanton. I still think about those characters and the amazing world Stanton created. I was also a big S.E. Hinton reader. Her characters were real. They were flawed--and that's my favorite kind of character.

BCM: Describe Touch in 5 words or less.

JA: An unforgettable rush of adrenalin

Thank you so much for joining us today, Jus!

Metamorphosis by Devon Ashley - Character Interview

I just had to interview you Abby!! Maybe it's because I like girls who kick butt.

BCM: How scared were you when you had to face Metamorphosis?

Abby: Honestly, until I began to see the changes physically, I didn’t even believe it was truly happening to me. But I ain’t gonna lie. Out of all the horrors I’ve faced in my lifetime, this metamorphosis truly scared me at times, cause I just didn’t know why it was happening or what would happen to me when it was over.

BCM: Will we ever know what your father did to your mom, besides kill her?

Abby: Touchy subject for me. Noel probably knows more about that than I do and it wouldn’t surprise me if he’s kept a few details from me. But seeing as how my father and I are both immortal, I guarantee you that nightmare of a man will linger and rear its ugly head once more. I’m not lucky enough to lose him for eternity.

BCM: What do you make of the powers that Emily has?

Abby: WTH, right? Noel and I honestly didn’t know what to expect since Emily was accidently infected with my blood. Lord Gaius, the head of vampire organization, would tell you that Emily’s newfound powers are exactly why we only use the baseline blood to make new members. She’s already accessed my wind manipulation power. Who knows what she’ll be capable of in a few years, or if she’ll develop more powers. (I have a feeling our recruiter Nicodemus will be incredibly ticked off at me for this. He’s been trying to revoke my membership since I became a pure vampire. And by revoking my vampirism, I don’t mean simply stripping my title…)

BCM: Why did you go back to the Order? To help them?

Abby: ROFL!!! To help THEM? Heck no! I’ll admit that The Order’s organization has a purpose in this world and now that Eraticus isn’t killing off the hunters, hopefully they’ll be able to fulfill that purpose. I went back because I knew I was ordained to fight Morphus, and I knew that if he decided to come looking for me, headquarters of the Order was gonna be the first place he looked. As much as I hated the Order for what they did to me, I would never allow that demon the chance to wipe out what hunters were left in this world. (The leaders of that organization…well, that’s another matter.)

BCM: What is your hope for the future? (I know, that's broad!)

Abby: That’s incredibly broad for an immortal. For the time being, I’d just like a few years of peace and quiet before it all goes to hell again.

Thanks Abby for taking the time to let me interview you!


Don’t forget to stop by the Crazy Dream Blog for a chance to win a copy of Metamorphosis signed with a personalized doodle-graph. Giveaway ends November 30th.



Toodles!

Review: Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey

Shattered Souls by Mary Lindsey
Release Date: December 8, 2011
Publisher: Philomel/Penguin
Genre: YA Paranormal

The Story: Lenzi hears voices and has visions - gravestones, floods, a boy with steel gray eyes. Her boyfriend, Zak, can't help, and everything keeps getting louder and more intense. Then Lenzi meets Alden, the boy from her dreams, who reveals that she's a reincarnated Speaker - someone who can talk to and help lost souls - and that he has been her Protector for centuries.

Now Lenzi must choose between her life with Zak and the life she is destined to lead with Alden. But time is running out: a malevolent spirit is out to destroy Lenzi, and he will kill her if she doesn't make a decision soon.

My Review: Lenzi’s father is dead because he heard voices and now that Lenzi has turned seventeen, she’s hearing them too. Her life flashes before her eyes: the hospitals, the medications, her mother’s sad face. She’s sure this is the course of her life until she visits her father’s grave and meets Alden. Alden is handsome and when he touches Lenzi, everything feels right in the world. The only problem is that Lenzi has a boyfriend and Alden seems to be just as much out of touch with reality as Lenzi is.

Before long, Lenzi has little choice but to believe Alden that she really is a Speaker and he’s her Protector. As a Speaker, Lenzi has the ability to help lost souls move on to Heaven or Hell. She’s apparently been doing this for centuries but has no memory of it or of her longtime Protector, Alden.

Her boyfriend, Zak, is the sexy musician type that keeps things interesting, but not necessarily always in the good way. Despite his downfalls, he’s extremely supportive of Lenzi and will do anything to help her overcome the voices in her head. It’s obvious that he truly cares for her, which makes it hard to dislike him at times when you know you should.

And if it isn’t enough that Lenzi has to choose between her loyal boyfriend to her centuries long Protector, Lenzi also finds out that she’s been the target of an extremely strong malevolent spirit and he’ll stop at nothing to finally destroy her.

Shattered Souls is an original and remarkable debut that had me on the edge of my seat for much of the book. Lenzi is a strong female lead that I instantly connected with and wanted to see succeed. I fell in love with Alden immediately. He’s handsome, devoted, confident and never puts his own needs before Lenzi’s. What else do we need in a man? And then there’s Zak. He may not be perfect but his character is built strong enough throughout the book that he’s impossible to forget and perhaps, you’ll fall in love with him a little bit too. He’s not perfect, but they can’t all be, can they?

I thoroughly enjoyed Shattered Souls and am keeping all my extremities crossed that we’ll get a second book to follow-up with.  It’s exceptionally well written, fantastically disturbing and head over heels romantic. I simply cannot wait to read more by this extremely talented author!

Geek Girl by Cindy Bennett

Geek Girl by Cindy Bennett
Publication Date: December 8 2011

From Author Cindy Bennett:
Think I could turn that boy bad?” My two best friends—my only two friends, really—follow my gaze and laugh.
 
  “Trevor Hoffman?” Beth scoffs. “No way, Jen.”
 
  “Why him?” Beth asks. “Why not any of the other nerds sitting there with him?”
 
  “Because,” I say slowly, “he isn’t your typical run-of-the-mill geek. Trevor Hoffman is different. He would be a little more difficult to take down—more of a challenge, you know?”  Jen’s teenage life of rebelling and sneaking out is growing stale. In  an effort to combat her boredom, Jen makes a bet to turn Trevor, a nice  geek,  into a “bad boy.” Unexpectedly, she is pulled into Trevor’s world of sci-fi movies, charity work, and even--ugh!--bowling. Jen discovers  that  hanging out with Trevor isn't so bad after all. But when Trevor finds out about the wager, all bets are off.

My Review: YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK. I could honestly stop there and not say anymore. Cindy Bennett is BRILLIANT in capturing the emotion and the life of being a teenager in high school. What she put into this book could just about be related to by any person that has ever been in high school and felt like they did not belong.

I can honestly say if I had the chance to redo high school, I totally would not. High School is one of the toughest "rites of passage" in my opinion. Are you a jock, a geek, in the band, a cheerleader, a misfit, not afraid to talk to anyone, afraid to talk to everyone or just biding your time until the next bell rings? Yes, you are in high school if you answered "yes" to any of those. High school is TOUGH! So when you do find your place in high school, how far will you go to stay in that "label" and try to bring others over to your "side"? Jen wanted to find out!

Jen made a bet with her friends that she could transform geek/nerd Trevor into someone she would be proud to be seen with. Her rebelling and partying lifestyle has gotten boring so she is ready for a new challenge. 

Jen does not realize that Trevor has a great family, great friends and great tastes. Is Jen really hanging out with her family bowling and enjoying it? What happens when Jen's life is turned upside down when Trevor finds out about the bet? 

I started reading this book while sitting in the middle of a corn field. My kids were taking their first combine ride and I waited patiently for them to be done. I spread out my blanket on the cut cornstalks and opened up my book. I got to read for about an hour that seemed like 10 minutes. We finished our running that day and did our normal Saturday errands. After supper, I could not wait to dive back into Geek Girl. I ended up staying up until 300am Sunday morning. I could not put the book down and did not want to! I laughed, cried, held my breathe and wished and hoped. What an amazing story. I love the message this books sends out to everyone! I will not tell you that message. You will know what I mean when you read the book! Seriously...you have to read this book!! I could not loan this book out fast enough after I read it. 

December 8th 2011 Geek Girl comes out in paperback. Get your copy ASAP!!

Review: The Pledge by Kimberly Derting

The Pledge by Kimberly Derting
Release Date: November 15, 2011
Publisher: Simon & Schuster
Genre: YA

About: In the violent country of Ludania, the classes are strictly divided by the language they speak. The smallest transgression, like looking a member of a higher class in the eye while they are speaking their native tongue, results in immediate execution. Seventeen-year-old Charlaina has always been able to understand the languages of all classes, and she's spent her life trying to hide her secret. The only place she can really be free is the drug-fueled underground clubs where people go to shake off the oppressive rules of the world they live in. It's there that she meets a beautiful and mysterious boy named Max who speaks a language she's never heard before . . . and her secret is almost exposed.

Charlie is intensely attracted to Max, even though she can't be sure where his real loyalties lie. As the emergency drills give way to real crisis and the violence escalates, it becomes clear that Charlie is the key to something much bigger: her country's only chance for freedom from the terrible power of a deadly regime.

My Review: I'm not entirely sure where I should begin this review. What if I just said, "This book is amazing in every single way. Go buy it now." Would that convince you? Because seriously, it is. It's amazing. Once I started reading The Pledge, I couldn't put it down. I was walking around my house with my Nook attached to my face and staying up well past my bedtime to find out what twists and turns Kimberly Derting had for us next.

Charlaina (Charlie) has a very dangerous secret. In her world, no one should know a language but their own. And any acknowledgment of another's language is a guaranteed death sentence. The problem is, Charlie can understand all of the languages being spoken around her and one little slip could destroy her family. No one knows her secret, not even her best friend.

In Ludania, the Queen rules everything. She's all knowing and all powerful. No one would dare to overthrow her. It's been tried in the past and the results were devastating to everyone. Charlaina knows this, but very quickly she learns that there are a lot of secrets being kept around her. Even those she is the closest to, those she's known her whole life have their own dangerous secrets. And when those secrets begin to unravel, everything Charlie has ever known will be put to the test.

The secondary characters didn't feel secondary at all. They each had such a pivotal part of the storyline that their existence was absolutely necessary to create such a vivid, intense world. Through the underground world of clubs, Charlie meets some very interesting people. Max is one of them, and well, he's mysterious in all the right ways. You never really know who he truly is, or if he can be trusted. You really want to trust him, but should you? To find out if Charlie does, you'll have to read the book for yourself. You won't be disappointed.  

The Pledge is an incredibly written thrill ride from the very first page. It's non-stop action and suspense and I could not get enough of Charlie's world. The story comes to life in your hands, the characters are sincere and each twist leaves you begging for another. It's an absolutely brilliant novel and I am already counting down the days for book two. 

So back to my original statement: This book is amazing in every single way. Go buy it now!

About: Calder White lives in the cold, clear waters of Lake Superior, the only brother in a family of murderous mermaids. To survive, Calder and his sisters prey on humans, killing them to absorb their energy. But this summer the underwater clan targets Jason Hancock out of pure revenge. They blame Hancock for their mother's death and have been waiting a long time for him to return to his family's homestead on the lake. Hancock has a fear of water, so to lure him in, Calder sets out to seduce Hancock's daughter, Lily. Easy enough—especially as Calder has lots of practice using his irresistable good looks and charm on ususpecting girls. Only this time Calder screws everything up: he falls for Lily—just as Lily starts to suspect that there's more to the monsters-in-the-lake legends than she ever imagined. And just as his sisters are losing patience with him.

Waiting on Wednesday - Everneath by Brodi Ashton

Okay, so I know it's Friday and this is a "Waiting on Wednesday" post, but I lost power for several days due to a crazy OCTOBER snow storm and as soon as I got power back, I've been knee deep in preparations for Best I've Read 2011. So can you forgive me for this two day off post? :-) 

Welcome to Waiting on Wednesday! Waiting on Wednesday a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine and spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating. This week I am anxiously awaiting:

Everneath by Brodi Ashton
Release Date: January 24, 2012
Genre: YA
Pre-Order: Amazon / Barnes & Noble

About: Last spring, Nikki Beckett vanished, sucked into an underworld known as the Everneath, where immortals Feed on the emotions of despairing humans. Now she's returned- to her old life, her family, her friends- before being banished back to the underworld... this time forever.

She has six months before the Everneath comes to claim her, six months for good-byes she can't find the words for, six months to find redemption, if it exists.

Nikki longs to spend these months reconnecting with her boyfriend, Jack, the one person she loves more than anything. But there's a problem: Cole, the smoldering immortal who first enticed her to the Everneath, has followed Nikki to the mortal world. And he'll do whatever it takes to bring her back- this time as his queen.

As Nikki's time grows short and her relationships begin slipping from her grasp, she's forced to make the hardest decision of her life: find a way to cheat fate and remain on the Surface with Jack or return to the Everneath and become Cole's...
