The sleepy town of White Halls harbors a dangerous secret.

Sure, their twenty-year-old son, Xander, still lives at home, but he's going to college and dating the leader of the schools top sorority. It's all very... normal. However, when a man is miraculously saved from being hit by a bus, Xander's life turns in to the living embodiment of the tornadoes he can suddenly create with a flick of his wrist. Whether he wants this gift or not, Xander must learn to use his new 'super power' quickly if he wants to survive. For his kind is a dying race, and when this sleepy town has a sudden influx of new, blonde, fire wielders, no one is safe, especially Xander. It doesn't help that one of these blondes happens to be the most beautiful girl he has ever seen. Xander can't deny the instant connection he feels to her so, when she tries to kill him, it certainly makes things complicated.

Excerpt from Wind Warrior:


Xander stood in the center of the field. From the periphery, standing well away near the tree line that lined the edge of the field, Sean watched Xander stretch his arms out wide. Xander closed his eyes and tilted his head backward.

“Are you ready for this?” Xander called. “Whatever this is, sure, I’m ready.” Xander heard the musical whisper of the wind as it called to him. Like a snake through the safari, the wind slithered between the tall grasses, causing them to sway and dance in rhythm. The wind kicked up around him, pulling at his clothes and hair. As the wind increased, it buffeted him from side to side, nearly causing him to lose his balance.

The sensation was like magic to Xander. The energy of the wind caressed his skinlike an old lover. It enveloped him where he stood and seemed to pour through his open mouth, filling him with its energy. When he was satisfied with the demonstration, he exhaled, forcing the soothing winds from his lungs.

As quickly as the wind began, it died away, leaving Xander standing alone again in the middle of the field. He lowered his arms and turned excitedly toward Sean.

“Did you see it?” “See what?” Xander gestured behind him, and then turned in a tight circle. “The wind.” 
“The wind,” Sean replied flatly. 
“Did you see the wind blowing through the field? That was me.” 
“You made a breeze? That’s what you’re telling me? That’s what was so important? Xander, I love you like a brother, but I break wind all the time without having to drag you out to a field to see me do it.”

Xander frowned at his friend’s disbelief. “Fine. I was going for a small demonstration but if you want big, we’ll do big.”

Xander returned to the center of the field and held his arms outstretched again. He closed his eyes but quickly opened one to peer at his friend. Sean leaned against the trunk of one of the trees, his arms crossed defensively in front of him. “You’re going to want to back up for this one.”

Sean turned around and looked behind him. “I’m already at the trees. I can’t go much further back.”

“Get... I don’t know. Get behind a tree.” 

“You want me to hide behind a tree while you break wind again?” 

“Will you just do it?” Xander said, exasperated. 

Tossing his hands in the air, Sean walked around to the backside of the tree he had been leaning against. “Is this good enough?” 

“Thank you.” Xander assumed his position in the field once again, lifting his arms straight out from his side. “Come on, wind... spirit,” he whispered quietly enough that Sean wouldn’t hear him. “Let’s give him something memorable.”

Instead of slithering through the grass like it did last time, the wind pounced on Xander like a lion. It roared into the field and crashed into Xander. He staggered as the wind took up a dance around him. He quickly opened his eyes as a wall of wind formed around him, swirling like the birth of a tornado. The grass around him stood strangely still but the wind filled the rest of the field. Every exhaled breath came out of Xander’s mouth in a puff of smoke as the temperature plummeted around him.

As the wind swirled faster and faster, he saw cans and bottles emerging from the grass. Like puppets being controlled by a skillful marionette, the debris danced in the wind. It got caught up in the swirling madness and became part of the ever-expanding swirl of air.
Xander’s ears popped as the air pressure increased. He tried to call out for Sean, or even laugh at the excitement of the moment, but the maddening wind stole away his words as soon as they left his mouth. Instead, he tilted his head back and laughed silently into the swirling maelstrom.

The increased air pressure drew the heavier objects out of the tall weeds. A rusted hubcap emerged, followed by a dilapidated car radiator. They joined the rest of the debris in its swirl, spinning in increasingly fast circles as the whipping wind reached near gale- force strength.
The hubcap flew dangerously close to him as it spun past. It was gone from his peripheral vision as quickly as it had appeared. When it reappeared, it was quite a bit further away, nearly to the distant trees. Like a projectile shot out of a cannon, the hubcap slammed into one of the trees, embedding itself deeply into the coarse wood.

Startled, Xander broke his concentration. For a moment, the cans and bottles slowed their spin before hanging in the air. They collapsed onto the ground as the last of the magic dissipated from the air.

“Sean?” Xander called out, suddenly worried for his friend. If the hubcap had enough force to bury itself into the thick wood, he was worried about what any of the other smaller items would have done to his friend. “Sean!” 

“That was so freaking cool,” Sean yelled, emerging from behind one of the trees. “That was so freaking cool!” 

Xander sighed happily at the sight of his heavyset friend. “See, I told you hiding behind the tree was a good idea.” 

“That was so freaking cool!” Sean yelled again as he bounded through the thick grass. He crashed into Xander, enveloping him in a bear hug. “How did you do that?”

TOP TEN little known facts about Jon Messenger:

10) I started writing my first novel in college.  It was a great storyline and a horrible execution.  I go back and read it every now and again to remind myself why I need to practice writing every day.  It was still a better love story than Twilight.

9) Speaking of college, I was a horrible college student.  It took me five years to get a four-year degree and my Army ROTC instructors informed me that I’d never last past my initial four-year commitment.  I’ve now been in the Army for 11 years and have been selected twice for prestigious Company Command positions.

8) The first time I had to run two miles for the Army physical fitness test, I failed.  I had 16 minutes to run the distance and it took me 21.  11 years later, I run Tough Mudders and marathons for fun.  I don’t know where I went so wrong in my life.

7) Despite playing soccer my entire life, I was always short and fat.  My freshman year of high school, I was 5’2” and weighed 210 lbs.  My sophomore year I hit a growth spurt and grew to 6’0”, which made 210 lbs not quite so round.

6) I naturally understate every problem I encounter.  My freshman year of college, I was driving on some backcountry roads on my way to visit my high school sweetheart.  I was driving too fast and lost control, careening into the woods.  After walking away from a horrific accident, I called my girlfriend and told her simply, “Can we reschedule?  I’m going to be a little late.”

5) Despite being an extrovert and having a degree in Public Relations, I actually greatly dislike people in large groups.  Or small groups.  Or people.

4) I should have been a pirate.  I had a lazy eye growing up and had to wear an eye patch for a year to correct the problem.  It was the easiest Halloween costume I’ve ever put together.

3) My father worked for the American Embassy system and I didn’t come to the US until middle school.  We moved from Tokyo, Japan to Smiths Gtove, KY.  I didn’t understand Southern slang and was pretty sure “over yonder” was actually a town, since everything I asked for was “over yonder”.

2) I have an eight-inch scar on my leg from where I was stabbed by a ninja.  I can’t actually confirm it was a ninja, but I was living in Japan at the time and if I could prove it, he wouldn’t have been a very good ninja.

1) I’m a Japanese pop star.  As a child, I stared in an English instruction video for Japanese student where I sang songs on stage.  Coincidentally, copies of that video have all been destroyed to protect the innocent.

EXCERPT

I dislike having to murder someone. Kidnapping is worse. At least when I setup a kill, I know what's coming. No connections, no honesty, no surprises. Everything I say and do are just steps to luring in my victim. Once the victim falls right into the trap, the next move is swift: crushed windpipe, fatal concussion, or a good ol' fashioned headshot.

            Kidnapping, on the other hand, is a little trickier. First, the victim has an opportunity to respond. I don't like this. Sometimes they cry. Sometimes they manage to alert the authorities. And sometimes they escape, usually by inflicting bodily harm on me.

            Dead people don't retaliate. Kidnapped ones, well, they're a little more . . . lively.

            The second major difference between killing and kidnapping is my conscience. I get in and out with a kill. We have no chance to bond.

            Abductees require a little more one-on-one. As much as I try to keep the switch turned off, I can't help but listen to their pleas and demands. And I usually realize I'm a jerk.

            That's exactly where I find myself one late afternoon in June. I prefer doing this at night, but moreover, I would prefer not doing this at all.

            Instead, I have a belligerent nine year old girl sitting in the passenger seat of my Honda Accord, shackles on her wrists and ankles and a small stuffed bunny on her lap. She's eying me in a way that makes me self-conscious. Like I'm the bad guy.

            Probably because I am the bad guy.

CONCEALED IN THE SHADOWS SERIES

BY: GABRIELLE ARROWSMITH


Concealed In The Shadows by Gabrielle Arrowsmith
(YA Dystopian- Available Now) 
Get it today on Amazon!

Sydney Harter has long awaited September 12th, 2033—her eighteenth birthday. She can finally apply for guardianship of her sister, who is her only family and entire world. She hopes they will be lawfully reunited, but is prepared to defy authority and risk everything to escape the captivity of Miles County so that they can be together.

Escaping will be difficult and dangerous. Citizens are bound to their county by sophisticated chip implants that deliver shocks to those who dare to cross the electric barrier. Sydney is very clever, but her trickery is limited against the all-seeing eyes of technology. Even if they were to survive the escape, disappearing into the forgotten forests and towns of the past seems an impossible task.

What Sydney doesn't know is that she is the particular interest of two opposing forces. With deceit, fear, and warfare surrounding her—can she trust the party that aims to help with her fight against the other? Can she open her heart to receive and return unexpected love? When her sister’s life becomes jeopardized, Sydney will have to weigh a new love against the only enduring love she has known. The cost could be deadly…

How will she choose?




RELEASED FROM THE DARKNESS 
by Gabrielle Arrowsmith

Two young seeksmen are dead, and Sydney blames herself. The only way to get her sister back from the county’s clutches, while also preventing more death, was to offer her own life in exchange for Evvie’s freedom.



She expected a dreadful end, but nothing like the prison in which she wakes. Agonizing county life is redefined in Neo-Necropolis, new city of the dead, which lies beneath the earth. Worse than being allegedly deceased, is the false identity Sydney is forced to assume where Evvie, Sheridan’s captain, and Crewe never existed. 



Sydney alone knows the magnitude of the county’s evildoings inside, outside, and now below. At only eighteen, the responsibility to defend freedom falls solely on her tried and tested shoulders—a burden that requires desperate action when a catastrophic revelation upends the world as she knew it. 



The people Sydney cares for are more vulnerable than ever. Though she’s buried underground and monitored by county agents, she must escape this new captivity. Maybe it’s time to fight fire with fire. Sydney has proven her courage in facing their weapons, but can she trigger her own? 


Excerpt from Concealed in the Shadows:

Suddenly, the little girl isn’t so brave. Tears overtake her small face as she buries herself in her grandmother’s lap. “You’re not going to let them take you away, are you, Grandma? You can’t leave us!” The desperate pleas of the helpless child prove to be too much for her grandmother. The tears escape her too, but she fights to hold in the anger and the revulsion in order to be strong for the sake of the child.

“I wish I could stay forever, sweetheart. I wish I could see you and your sister grow into the strong, beautiful women that I know you will become. I wish I could see your mother get healthy again.” The tears try to choke off her words, but she forces them out. “But, you see, last night was my last Friday night sleepover with you and your sister, and sweetheart,” she places her hand on the shoulder of the little girl and smiles, “it was one of the best days of my life. I get to leave this world with warm memories of baking cookies and painting flowers with my two favorite people in the world.”

“I don’t want you to go!” the child protests as her heart boils and her face floods. She pulls her grandma’s arms around her and buries her head into her chest as she begs, “Just tell them you don’t feel sick. Tell them you want to stay a little longer.” She closes her eyes tightly and wishes that it were a nightmare. But already the little girl knows better than hoping for happiness in her life. She knows there are no exceptions to the unchallengeable laws.

“I know, sweetheart, I know.” The woman strokes and kisses the distraught and fragile girl’s hair as the child clings to her tightly. A few more tears slide from her weary eyes before she finds the strength to make a final request of her beloved grandchild.

“Sydney?” She looks down to where I’m still clinging to her, not ready to come away and meet the eyes I love so much as she tells me that this is the last time I will see her. “Sydney,” she tries again, this time gently pulling my chin from her chest. “I need you to do me one last favor, okay?” My grandma can see that I can’t handle this. How can she ask me, a mere child, to let go of the one I love most, the unyielding presence in my life? Her next words seem sharper than the rest in the memory, and I never let them go.

“Sydney Harter, I know it will be hard, but you have no choice other than to be the bravest girl there ever was. You have to be brave so that you and Evvie can grow up strong. Grandpa and I, your dad, and Grandma and Grandpa Harter, want to look down on you and smile because of how proud you’ve made us.” She waits. My wails have subsided to sobs, but the pain hasn’t lessened any. “You want to make all of us proud, right honey?”

“Yes,” I reply shakily. It took so much to utter that single word because with it came the acknowledgement that I had only begun learning hardship.

“Good, sweetheart. Good girl,” she soothes. “What I need you to do is try your very hardest to take care of your sister. Be good all the time and try to help your mom when she seems sick.” Grandma’s eyes enlarge and she squeezes my hand more tightly. “Never ever tell anyone about your mom’s sickness, even if it seems like they are trying to help. Can you be a big girl and do those things for me, sweetheart?” I nod that I can, although I don’t believe it, and empty my heart in her lap for the last time.

House Of Ivy and Sorrow By Natalie Whipple eArc Review!



18117964Buy The Book Now at The Book Depository, Free Delivery World Wide   Goodreads_icon_32x32

Title : House Of Ivy and Sorrow
Author : Natalie Whipple
Pages : 352
Published : April 15th 2014 by Harper Teen
Source : Edelweiss

Josephine Hemlock has spent the last 10 years hiding from the Curse that killed her mother. But when a mysterious man arrives at her ivy-covered, magic-fortified home, it’s clear her mother’s killer has finally come to destroy the rest of the Hemlock bloodline. Before Jo can even think about fighting back, she must figure out who she’s fighting in the first place. The more truth Jo uncovers, the deeper she falls into witchcraft darker than she ever imagined. Trapped and running out of time, she begins to wonder if the very Curse that killed her mother is the only way to save everyone she loves.

My Thoughts : 

Jos mum was killed by the curse that is following her family and she now lives with her Grandmother. She has a secret she is keeping from her friends, she is a witch and comes from a long line of strong witches. Jo is just trying to be normal and have a normal life but the day a stranger comes to her door her life changes forever! 

Can I just say that this was amazing and leave it at that!! Didn't think so ;) This really really took me by surprise. With the title and cover being so intriguing I added it to my wishlist. Then when I saw it on Edelweiss I downloaded it and couldn't wait to start it. I didn't read any reviews before starting it so went in with no expectations. Well I'm glad to say that this hooked me from the very first sentence. 

Lets start with Jo. She is hiding a part of her life from her friends and wants nothing better than a normal life. She has a huge crush on Winn and just wants to date him without her nan cursing him any time he does something. She had to watch her mother be consumed by the very curse that is threatening her. Her friends are in danger and then when she seems to have a stalker that's carrying very dark magic she has to make a choice that will change her life and that of her friends forever. I immediately liked Jo. She has a lot on her plate but is still a strong, capable, normal teenager. 

Then we have Jos Nan. She is the witch that people rumour about. She is the head of the Hemlocks and a really strong witch. Since her daughter died of the Curse she has been doing everything she can to keep Jo safe. She keeps the wards around their small town strong and still manages to give Jos boyfriend spots if he does something she doesn't like!! Again, I really liked Jos nan. She gives off the grumpy witch, don't mess with me vibe but she will and does do everything to keep Jo alive. 

I loved the witchy world that Natalie Whipple created. There is no good or bad magic, just witches that let the magic consume them! The magic does everything to try to turn you bad but you have to control it. Every witch can only have female descendants. There are no male witches, or are there?? You will have to read the book to find out ;) 

Overall House Of Ivy and Sorrow is a fantastic addition to the witch genre. Its intriguing, unique and mysterious. It will suck you and not let you go even if you want to. The romance was sweet without being overkill and you will find it hard to not love all the characters. The book is steeped in loyalty, family and rich with the witch history. I loved finding out more about the Hemlock line. 

I absolutely loved the world the author created, it was magical and totally consumed me and I hope we will see more of these characters. Id highly recommend this to everyone.

Excerpt from Project ELE:


When five o'clock rolls around I gladly hand my tablet over to Alec to download my delivery signatures. We are the last two in the office so I sit on top of his desk next to him as he finishes the last of his work. I watch him typing furiously on the keyboard. I don't pay attention to the words being entered on the screen, instead I take the time to study him in a way that you can't do when someone's looking at you. Well, at least not without totally creeping him out.

His hair is so dark that it nearly looks black on most days. Today, when I look at it just the right way I can see the deep brown and chestnut colors that stand out underneath the light. I also notice that his eyebrows furrow in and his eyes squint ever so slightly when he's concentrating. It's endearing.

I inch myself closer so I can see more of his eyes. The deep emerald green that he once had is now completely replaced with the most unique shade of navy blue that I've ever seen. It starts out dark, almost black around the outer part of his eye and then fades into a lighter, yet still navy shade of blue as it leads into his pupils. Both of his eyes are completely changed and I wonder why only one of mine has changed.

Alec turns and catches me staring. He doesn't say anything though. He shuts the computer off and stands up from his chair. He leans in to where I'm sitting on his desk and studies me.

"What are you doing?" I know I'm blushing and it's possible that I should feel self-conscious, but nothing about Alec's stare makes me feel unsure of myself. If anything the look that he's giving me makes me feel beautiful and more confident.

"I figured if you got to study me for an uninterrupted five minutes then I should get to do the same to you." He smiles.

"Oh, you saw that?" I push some of my hair behind my ear.

He nods his head but continues to appraise me.

My body feels warm and flush and the butterflies are dancing around again in my stomach. The silence is killing me so I decide to break it. "So, what exactly are you studying?"


"Hmm, an exquisite specimen really." He says in his best official scientific voice.

I crack a smile at his corniness.

"Yes, her teeth are perfectly white. Her unruly waves have a color that is quite unique, it reminds me of a mix between caramel and toasted coconut."

I giggle. "I'm sure it doesn't taste as good as either of those."

He pushes his hand through my hair and continues. "Her eyes are almond shaped and one is the most beautiful brown I've ever seen."

I put my hand up to my left eye knowing that it must look horrible and freakish.

He pulls my hand away and sets it gently on my lap. He pushes my bangs aside and says, "And the other one is the most amazing mixture of colors that she seems to think is odd but I think it's stunning." He kisses me on my cheek then finishes. "I will conclude my findings with one final appraising statement. Willow Mosby, you are the most breathtakingly beautiful creature that I've ever set eyes on."

Rebecca Gober and Courtney Nuckels Talk Super Powers!

In our ELE Series many of the characters start developing super powers after a major apocalyptic event. These powers range from hearing thoughts, ability to compel someone, super strength, ability to walk through objects, ability to go invisible, and more! We've often been asked in interviews, which super power would we like to have if we could have any of them. Here's a list of the super powers we'd love to have:

1.      The ability to type 300 words per minute. Can you imagine how quickly we could write a book if this were possible?
2.      Well, if we were going to gain the above ability, we'd need to be able to think up 300 words a minute to make the typing speed worthwhile. So lets add, super speed creative brainpower. (Yes, we made that up. Can you imagine that super hero? They could take on every Pinterest craft project on their board while writing a book and simultaneously whipping up brand new inventions that could very well change the world as we know it.)  Craftzilla!
3.      The ability to have ten arms when we need them. Make that, ten go-go-gadget-arms that reach as far as we need them to. (Note that we would not like to have the ten arms all of the time. That would be awkward when going out in public and frankly, it would just make other women jealous, lol!) Anyway, ten arms would give us the ability to cook dinner for our husbands, help our kids with school work, give the dog a bath, write a book, work on Clean Teen Publishing stuff and beat each other's highest scores on Bejeweled all at once! Coupled with the speed brainpower, we will be unstoppable!
4.      The ability to devour 10,000 calories without it affecting our health or our figure. That's 20 chocolate truffles, 2 Red Bulls, a bag of Cheetos, a Texas sized steak (that's right y'all), a double stuffed fully loaded baked potato and a couple of pints of Haagen Dazs.
5.      Oh and the ability to bring World Peace. (That was our pageant girl answer.)


If you could have any super power, what power would you have?
