Book Blitz : The Watcher by Lisa Voisin

The Watcher
Release Date:

Summary from
ago, he fell from heaven for her.

Can he face her without falling again?

Fascinated with ancient civilizations, seventeen-year-old Mia Crawford dreams
of becoming an archaeologist. She also dreams of wings—soft and silent like
snow—and somebody trying to steal them.

When a horrible creature appears out of thin air and attacks her, she knows
Michael Fontaine is involved, though he claims to know nothing about it.
Secretive and aloof, Michael evokes feelings in Mia that she doesn’t
understand. Images of another time and place haunt her. She recognizes them—but
not from any textbook.

In search of the truth, Mia discovers a past life of forbidden love, jealousy
and revenge that tore an angel from Heaven and sent her to an early grave. Now
that her soul has returned, does she have a chance at loving that angel again?
Or will an age-old nemesis destroy them both?

Ancient history is only the beginning.

Book Blitz/Giveaway : Daughter of Isis by Kelsey Ketch

Daughter of Isis (Descendants of Isis, #1)
Release Date: 10/26/13
Cover Designed by: Steven Novak

Summary from Goodreads:
“Her mouth parted slightly, waiting for Seth to breathe life into her own body, just like in the story. She wanted him to awaken her senses.”

Their worlds collide in California’s high desert.

The last thing Natara “Natti” Stone wants to do is to start anew at Setemple High School. She wished she had never left London. Yet the brutal murder of her maternal grandmother has made her life very complicated. The only clue related to her murder is an ancient, encrypted necklace Natti discovered after her grandmother’s death. And if trying to adjust to American life is not enough, Natti is being stalked by a mysterious, charming high school senior, Seth O’Keefe, who is annoyingly persistent in his attempts at seduction.

Seth O’Keefe is secretly a member of the Sons of Set, an order that worships the Egyptian god of chaos. Seth’s blessing from Set, his “charm,” never failed, except with one person: Natti Stone. Her ability to elude him infatuates and infuriates him, and he becomes obsessed with the chase. But the closer he gets to her, the more his emotions take a dangerous turn, and he risks breaking one of the most valued covenants of his order. The punishment for which is a fate worse than death.

The adventure this unlikely couple becomes engulfed in could cost them their lives and their souls.

Daughter of Isis Excerpt

“She has always protected our family,” Zofia told her. “And we have always been careful to protect her in return.”

Protected, Natti snorted and picked the box up gently and tilted it upright so she could look at the relief. Then why was her grandmother dead? Murdered in her own home?

She brushed her fingers over the mother-of-pearl feathers of Isis’s wings. Patterns of stars, ankhs, and eyes graced the borders, the mother-of-pearl incasing them in fine lines of shimmering white. Straightening her position on the floor, she leaned her back against the bed frame and studied the figures and images.

As she tipped the box just a bit more, something shifted and clinked against the wood inside. Natti froze. She glanced at her cat, who had stuck her nose over the rim of her fort; her eyes like saucers. Returning her attention back to the cedar box, Natti opened the lid. The maroon, velvet lining greeted her, but nothing more. Natti cocked her head and closed the box again as she thought. She examined the exterior, giving it a small shake. A metallic object scraped and rattled against the wood. A thought hit her, and she looked back inside, this time comparing the interior depth to the height of the exterior.

“Oh shit!” Natti rechecked to make sure her eyes hadn’t failed her. “No, bloody way!”

Book Blitz : Submerged by Nicole Sobon

Submerged (Outbreak #1)
Release Date:

Summary from
After a
mysterious virus makes its way into the United States, the government demands
that states seal themselves off from one another and do their best to protect
their surviving residents. When the state of Florida is bordered off from the
surrounding states, Taylen Fincher, a seventeen-year-old girl with a yearning
for her former life finds herself wondering how much of what they’ve been told
is true.

When Troum took control of the state, he told the residents that the other
states had fallen to the virus and that he wouldn’t allow the same thing to
happen to them. But Taylen doesn’t believe it. She insists that there is still
life outside of the state, and she is going to do whatever it takes to prove
it… but her actions will cost her more than she ever expected.

Troum kidnaps Taylen’s sister, Penelope, in hopes of coaxing her into behaving
– into being a submissive resident, much like the others. But Taylen isn’t one
to give in that easily.

Eager to rescue her sister, Taylen will set out on an adventure that’ll force
her to open her heart to the unexpected and to uncover secrets that will change

Excerpt #1:
Tears began to pool at the corners of my eyes. It took everything I had to retain my composure. I wasn’t going to break down. I couldn’t. I dropped my gaze to the floor, refusing to acknowledge Troum.
But he wasn’t having it. “What’s the matter, dear? Are you ashamed of your actions?”
Was I ashamed of my actions? Yes. In the beginning, I never thought things would end up like this. All I wanted was to remember what life was like before – to try to reclaim part of what had been taken from me. I never meant for anyone to get hurt, especially not Penelope.
The problem was that I underestimated Troum early on.
He put on a friendly front to the Sectors, doing everything that he could to force their loyalty, but underneath all of that, there was a man desperate for control – more control than he already had. And we were a state full of people in need of stability.
It was a match made in Hell.
He became our stability, and we became his own personal army.

SUBMERGED is the first book in a YA dystopian duology.
