People believe the world will go out with a bang. People expect it to be crushed under ever-rising waves, to burn in an inferno of all-encompassing flame, to be torn asunder by the same forces that created it. 

No one ever thought it would be as gentle as a door sliding open. No one suspected the beginning of the end would go unnoticed.

Yesterday, Lee led a normal life. Today he is alone, lost and unable to remember anything but the pain.

Henry remembers too much. He holds recollections of what was, what should have been, what will remain forever lost.

They both want to save the world.

Together, they might destroy it.

It’s ironic, how worried I am about falling to my death when it’ll find me one way or the other.


It’s also disturbing, this second-guessing that comes with cold, intangible fingers sliding down my spine and a taste of fear. I made my choice and I will go through with it.


I keep climbing, and the white-knuckled hold I have on the railing is the only show of weakness I allow myself. It takes us a few minutes to reach the relative safety of the concrete rooftop, and I put them to good use, schooling my features and body language to resemble a blank slate: an emotionless mask just like Edmund’s.


I certainly hope my efforts are successful enough to hide my astonishment when I see the crowd waiting for us.


Well. Go figure. Five years of preparation and Edmund didn’t think to mention the audience once in all that time. He told me this wouldn’t be a private affair and that six of his brethren would perform the ritual with him, but the couple dozen people milling about and having no apparent role whatsoever are a surprise. A rather unpleasant one, if I’m honest. They look like sharks, sleek and elegant in their suits. Their polite smiles will turn razor sharp the moment they catch a whiff of weakness. If I were any other person, I would take them for lawyers, CEOs or some other species of corporate predator, but I’m unfortunate enough to know better.


Sometimes I swear the only value of truth is to make a task more difficult. A meeting of high-ranking executives who hold age, experience and planning over my head I can handle. A gathering of curious, somewhat amused demons gets under my skin.

Love Lines by Diana Nixon BLOG TOUR



Love Lines BLOG TOUR 




The traces of supernatural powers have always been crossing the world of human beings. Many people know about the existence of healers, mind readers, oneiromancers and wizards. But for centuries their lives have been kept secret and no one has ever heard about Dever, a kingdom of mysteries and magic.

Neither has Eileen Clark, whose life has never been different from the one other teenagers have
.
Everything changes the day Eileen receives an invitation to join the ranks of Dever’s students.

Nothing will ever be the same again…

New life, new friends, new enemies…

 And love so powerful that no magic will be able to destroy…





Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
-          So I was born in Minsk, Belarus. I am a lawyer by occupation and a writer by heart. I have a Master of Law degree, but since the day I finished writing my debut fantasy novel, named Love Lines, I couldn’t imagine my life without creating new stories. That’s why today I’m a full-time writer:) As any other author, I’m a coffee addict and a hopeless dreamer. I’m also a hopeless optimist, so things are rarely bad for me:) 

Tell us a few words about Love Lines.
-          As I have already said, it’s a fantasy story; a mixture of magic, mystery and love. It has everything a YA bookaholic needs: intriguing plot, unpredictable twists, cliff-hanging end. I tried to add some unique notes to the things that we can find in any other paranormal story: magic, elements, curses, spells, etc. In Love Lines, you will see a completely new approach to all of the above. It will take you to the world of Dever – a university for people with different supernatural powers.  You will dive into a wonderful adventure, where nothing is what it seems. You will see love so beautiful and touching that won’t leave anyone indifferent. Give Love Lines a try, and you won’t be disappointed! :)

What project are you working on now?
-          A few days ago, I finished writing another NA romance, named Love Undone.  The date of its release is not set yet, but it will be published by Nevermore Press, so stay tuned and don’t miss the news! For now, I can share the synopsis and book trailer that you can find following the link  below: http://diananixon.blogspot.com/2014/03/love-undone-synopsis-book-trailer.html

Can you tell us about your upcoming book?
-          Love Undone is a story that shows how easy losing love is, and how hard it is to bring things back to normal. It will make you cry, laugh and swoon.  I truly hope you will enjoy this love adventure, full of touching moments, strong, funny and charming characters:)

What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
-          Love Undone is written from two POVs, Kassie’s and Daniel’s. I really enjoyed working on Dan’s chapters, as he’s a tough act to follow and a real expert in pissing everyone off:) He has a good sense of humor and he never misses his chances to tease Kassie. I call them an explosive combination of temper and passion:)

What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?
-          One day, after I published Love Lines novel, I was looking for the readers to review the book. One of them said it was very rude to ask people to read my story. But I didn’t MAKE anyone read it I only asked if they wanted to. That’s why her response made me so angry, that even now I remember it as one of the worst moment in my writing  career:) But there were so many great compliments about my books. I keep receiving feedbacks every day, and people keep saying how much they love what I do. I guess this is the best thing that any author would like to hear:)

Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?
-          Don’t let anyone make you doubt your talents. There will be many people willing to criticize your books, but there will also be those who will fall in love with your writing:) So don’t be afraid of anything, go ahead, and spread the news about your stories all over the world! :) 

Is there anything that you would like to say to your readers and fans?
-          I truly appreciate everything that you do and say to make me want write more. You are my inspiration, so I promise to create more great stories for you to enjoy:)

Have you ever gone out in public with your shirt on backwards, or your slippers on, and when realizing it, just said screw it?
-          Ahaha, yes. It happened once when I was in London. I went for a walk with my friend, and about 10 minutes after we left our apartment, she laughed and pointed to my blue slippers saying, “You know, they match your shirt perfectly!”  We both laughed, but it was too late to go back home, so I hoped people wouldn’t notice them:) Thank God, it was late outside and streets were almost empty:)

Do you prefer fuzzy or tub socks?
-          Fuzzy!
Are you a person who makes their bed in the morning, or do you not see much point?
-          I’m a person who likes when the house is clean:) So I never leave my bed undone.
Be honest, how often do you wash your hair?
-          Every other day:)
Do you get road rage? What pisses you off the most about other drivers?
-          No to the first question:) But I hate it when other drivers are showing off.
Do you go out of your way to kill bugs? Are there any that make you screech and hide?
-          I don’t like them and I’m afraid of almost every that I see round:)
Coffee or Tea?
-          COFFEE!!!
What is your biggest phobia?
-          Water. I’m not a great swimmer:)
What’s your biggest pet peeve when it comes to social media? (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
-          Facebook :) The thing knows how to distract me when I should be writing:)

Gabby is an angel of God who shows him that life is always full of surprises, adventures and a lot more meaning than we can easily fathom. She shows Bo how to help others, be open to love again and find the hidden strength that lies within all of us. It is a story with heart and hope that will take you on an adventure of faith with one amazing angel.


Gabby, Angel of God will take you on one heck of a ride!



4 Stars
****

Gabby, Angel of God has an overall decent plot. I enjoyed the journey I went on with Bo and Gabby. The author did a great job at pulling the reader in and taking them on one heck of a ride. The main character Bo, becomes a widower with two children and doesn't seem to know how to move on from the death of his wife. Gabby, an angel appears to him to teach him how to live again.

There were some aspects I didn't particularly care about through the story. At times it seemed hard to believe, such as an angel of God cussing or threatening demons or mortals. Once I read this, it was a bit harder for me to continue. Some of the ways Gabby portrayed herself, was hard for me to read.

There were parts of the story where I was really drawn in but at times I found the story dragging. I loved the references to God within the book. Books based upon faith are winners to me, however if you're not drawn into these types of books, I would pass.

CHAPTER ONE (first half)

The night was cool and thick as it sheathed me in total darkness. The satin shorts and camisole that I’d gone to bed in were now damp from the moisture hanging heavily in the air. Holding my hands in front of my body, I blindly wandered around in blackness as I tried to find some kind of clue that would give me a better picture. My bare feet told me that I was standing on soft ground, the tall grass tickling my calves as I moved. It was possible that I was in a large pasture, though the clean, crisp scent of the air let me know that no large animals were near.


Thunder cracked in the distance and the ominous, coal-black clouds had even chased the moon and stars into hiding, not even the faintest glow giving away their location. It took a moment, but my mind was finally beginning to recognize this place. This was a dream world, one that I’d seen before. With every passing night, with every passing dream, I was able to travel further and further into this illusion as I tried to discover its meaning. I’d had recurring dreams before, but there was something different, disturbing about this one that seemed to speak to me. There was something that I was supposed to learn here and I needed to find it.


The wind began to pick up and I looked to the north, the same direction that I looked to every night. Lightning cascaded across the sky, illuminating the massive, empty pasture in which I stood. The momentary flash brought something to my attention that I’d never seen in the dream before. Two figures stood off in the distance, several yards between them, facing off. Even with great distance between us, I could feel the tension rolling off of them. That must be the dark, heavy feeling in the air that I’d felt: anger, hatred.


Thunder rolled again as the lightning danced across the sky. Using the display to light my path, I ran toward the figures ahead of me. As I approached, a bolt of raw, electric energy reached down from the sky and ignited the immediate area in flames. The swift turn of events stopped me short, nearly throwing me to the ground. The flames spread into a perfect circle as it surrounded both figures, blocking any further approach by me. Sharp chills cut through me from head to toe as I realized that one of them was fully controlling the blaze.


Now that I was closer, I could tell that the figures were women. One woman, maybe an inch or two over five feet tall, stood around fifty feet away, and to my right. Her long, jet-black hair reached just below her hips and whipped around in the increasing wind. As I studied her, I began to see a deep-red, transparent cloud, like an aura surrounding her. She was strong, very strong, and I could feel her overwhelming power from here.


Looking to my left, her opponent was roughly the same height; only her hair was frosty white and hung to her knees. This woman was much different. She was surrounded by an aura cloud as well, though hers was dark blue. Something about her called to me and it took everything I had not to trudge barefooted through the flames to reach her.


Rain began to fall and quickly soaked everything around us, though it was still unable to extinguish the fire. Movement brought me to attention as the white haired woman lifted her arms. The earth began to quake beneath me as it broke free all around her. She looked like a dancer as she maneuvered her body, forcing the element into submission under her power. The packed earth sailed through the air towards the dark haired woman, but she was quick to react.


In a flash, she completely disappeared from my sight, managing to dodge the attack. My eyes moved quickly as I focused to find her. My body locked up as my vision was suddenly clouded with the mysterious dark haired woman as she appeared before me, seemingly out of nowhere. Her dark, emerald green eyes and dilated coal-black pupils stared into mine, glinting in the firelight. Her raven hair seemed alive as it brushed my skin and sent tingles running through my body. Her flawless, olive-toned skin nearly glowed as she stood there, concern in her expression.


“Kailah.” As her soft, sweet voice spoke my name, I inhaled sharply. Though her mouth barely moved as she spoke my name, her perfect, white teeth showed just enough for me to make out four tiny, yet still elongated, razor sharp fangs. My heart fluttered rapidly as I wondered if this woman was the creature that she appeared to be, and if so, how did she know me and what did she want with me?


“Y-yes?” I stammered.


“This is not a dream, Kailah. It’s a warning.” She leaned in closer. “Run,” she whispered.


“Wait, what?” I asked, chills once again stabbing me like thousands of needles running from the roots of my hair to the bare, wet soles of my feet.


Run!”


As soon as I turned to run, the dark thunder cracked overhead and the lightning began touching the ground all around me, trying to hold me where I stood. I heard a loud growl sound out from behind me, but decided not to look back. The earth began to shake again and my bare feet slid on the wet grass, the soft ground cushioning me as I fell hard on my right hip.


“Hello Kailah.” The new voice sent a shiver down my spine as I looked into the icy blue eyes of the white-haired woman.


Though her hair would have suggested otherwise, she looked no older than me: around twenty. Her skin was also olive toned and absolutely flawless, just like the other woman. Though, normally, one would look to the light as salvation and the darkness as hell, I didn’t think that was the case in this situation. Her crystalline blue eyes had death in them and I found myself backing away from her, toward the raven-haired beauty.


She laughed and the sound enveloped me like frigid water. “Kailah, you would choose the Vampire over your own grandmother?”


Before I could digest the words that she had unleashed on me, her attention shifted and the blue aura cloud surrounding her exploded into a barrier. Instinctively, my eyes closed and I threw my hand out as a large throwing knife bounced off the cloudy shield and headed for me.


“It is you!” she said with wonder.


My eyes snapped open and surrounding my hand was the same blue energy that surrounded the white-haired woman, only mine had a throwing knife buried in it. I couldn’t stop the scream that bubbled up out of my throat as the energy dissipated and the knife fell in my lap. What the hell was going on?


Her attention shifted again and with soft, graceful movements, a lightning bolt responded as it split from the sky and reached for her outstretched hand. She caught the energy easily before throwing it at her opponent. Another loud growl sounded out only a moment before something slammed hard into the barrier. That something, I realized, was the woman she had referred to as the Vampire.


Dark red energy swelled around the supposed Vampire as she pushed against the barrier of the opposing woman. “Kailah! She can find you in your dreams! Go, now!” As soon as the order left the raven-haired beauty’s lips, energy exploded from her body as the white-haired woman was thrown several feet away. “This dream is a figment of your own mind but, make no mistake, this is a premonition. You are the key to ending this war and if she finds you, it will doom all humans to a fate worse than death. Leave this realm now and prepare your mind. Your life is about to change.”
