Review: Crystal Fire (The Hunted #2) by Jordan Dane

Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.

A storm is brewing on the streets of LA, one that has intensified since a tragic and deadly confrontation claimed an innocent life.

While Gabriel Stewart trains his army of teen psychics to stop Alexander Reese--the obsessed leader of the Believers--the fanatical church becomes more bent on the annihilation of all Indigo and Crystal children. They're silencing the voices of the telepathic hive, one soul at a time, with frightening experiments cruelly executed on vulnerable minds.

When the Believers torture a mysterious homeless boy, Oliver Blue, they brainwash him into betraying his own. The boy becomes a deadly pawn to take Gabriel down. As the fires of chaos burn around him, Gabe is running out of time. He'll need to confront his past--and the man who made him--before the hope of peace for the future is silenced forever.

Book two of The Hunted picks up after the disastrous firefight in the abandoned tunnels.  The indigo kids have taken refuge with Gabe's family and are training to protect themselves.  But there is a new kid with some really strange new powers to contend with.  No one is quite sure who he is or what he can do right now.

This new kid is Oliver Blue and the Believers have him.  They have a handful of others as well that will also play an important role in this story.  While I didn't get into this storyline as well as the first book in a general sense, there were some very big scenes that I really loved.  Many of these revolved around Oliver and how he learns to control his abilities and use them.

The ending of the story was one of the best I'd read in a long time.  There was a lot of happiness, but the story was left slightly unresolved.  This is definitely not a cliffhanger, but I wonder if at some point there will be a spin-off series or third book.

The Artisans
They say death can be beautiful. But after the death of her mother, seventeen-year-old RAVEN WEATHERSBY gives up her dream of becoming a fashion designer, barely surviving life in the South Carolina lowlands.
To make ends meet, Raven works after school as a seamstress creating stunning works of fashion that often rival the great names of the day.
Instead of making things easier on the high school senior, her stepdad's drinking leads to a run in with the highly reclusive heir to the Maddox family fortune, Gideon Maddox.
But Raven's stepdad's drying out and in no condition to attend the meeting with Maddox. So Raven volunteers to take his place and offers to repay the debt in order to keep the only father she's ever known out of jail, or worse.
Gideon Maddox agrees, outlining an outrageous demand: Raven must live in his home for a year while she designs for Maddox Industries' clothing line, signing over her creative rights.
Her handsome young captor is arrogant and infuriating to the nth degree, and Raven can't imagine working for him, let alone sharing the same space for more than five minutes.
But nothing is ever as it seems. Is Gideon Maddox the monster the world believes him to be? And can he stand to let the young seamstress see him as he really is?
The Artisans is a delectably rich, layered and dark YA Southern Gothic inspired by Jeanne Marie Leprince de Beaumont's classic Beauty and the Beast.
"The Artisans has all the elements I love - spooky intrigue, strong friendships, and a romantic tension to be savored." ~ Wendy Higgins, New York Times bestselling author of the Sweet Evil trilogy.

Born in Ohio, I lived next to my grandfather’s horse farm until the fourth grade. Summers were about riding, fishing and make-believe, while winter brought sledding and ice-skating on frozen ponds. Most of life was magical, but not all.
I struggled with multiple learning disabilities, did not excel in school. I spent much of my time looking out windows and daydreaming. In the fourth grade (with the help of one very nice teacher) I fought dyslexia for my right to read, like a prince fights a dragon in order to free the princess locked in a tower, and I won.
Afterwards, I read like a fiend. I invented stories where I could be the princess… or a gifted heroine from another world who kicked bad guy butt to win the heart of a charismatic hero. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that? Later, I moved to Florida where I continued to fantasize about superpowers and monsters, fabricating stories (my mother called it lying) and sharing them with my friends.
Then I thought I’d write one down…
Hooked, I’ve been writing ever since. I write historical, contemporary, urban fantasy, adventure, and young adult romances. I love strong heroines, sweeping tales of mystery and epic adventure… which must include a really hot guy. My writing is proof you can work hard to overcome any obstacle. Don’t give up. I say, if you write, write on!

What kind of power is lurking inside him? After a year of training to become a dragonrider, Jaevid Broadfeather has been sent home to rest during a three-month interlude. But when he returns to find the king drake has chosen Beckah Derrick as his new rider, Jaevid realizes something big is about to happen. Every fiber of his being is pushed to the breaking point as Jaevid battles through his avian year, preparing for the final graduation test of the battle scenario. But there is more standing in his way than a few pushups and fancy sword moves. Jaevid must face a new fear as he is tormented by a gruesome nightmare of a mysterious gray elf warrior murdering the royal family of Maldobar. It seems obvious to him that this is some kind of message about how the war started long ago—until Felix assures him the king is very much alive. With his strange powers growing stronger by the day, and that violent dream replaying in his mind every night, Jaevid no longer wonders if he will pass his avian year or not—he wonders if he will even survive it. The truth will soon be set loose.

Fledgling (Dragonrider Chronicles #1): Review

Avian is just about a perfect sequel to Fledgling.  It's a DragonRiders of Pern for aimed at Young Adults.  Jaevid is center stage again as he is set to start his second year of training - his Avian year.  This year starts with some pretty amazing changes for him.  He discovers some Gray Elf heritage the hard and painful way as his body finally develops.  He also discovers some hidden gifts that are pretty scary to be honest.  His gifts manifest in different ways and grow throughout the story.  They play a very key role in his future and the future of the kingdom.

His friends and enemies are back, and we get to see his crush from home, Beckah, a little bit as well.  This crush was the one thing that didn't sit quite right with me.  It seemed to be a bit overdone and the fallout was a little awkward.  It ended too many times when it could have been done with simply without the added drama.  There is a new romance for Jaevid that is developing, a very good one, but with a girl that is pretty much off limits to him.  I'll be very interested to see where this goes.  She is about as non-traditional as he is and they are a good fit.

The land is seeing lots of unsettling changes as animals seem to be going crazy - attacking for no reason and causing a boat load of problems.  Even Jaevid can't get through to them with his special animal speaking skills - their free will seems to be gone.  No one knows what is causing this, but the dragons are particularly upset about it.

Jaevid's second year of training is a tough one.  He is forced to make some incredibly difficult decisions and take part in some horrific training.  He knows that he will have a major part to play in the upcoming events and in the war against the Gray Elves, but he's not sure what that part will be yet.  This was a very exciting book two that kept me turning the pages as fast as I could to see what would happen next.  I loved seeing his old friends and trainers and meeting a few new ones.  I can't wait to see what book three will have in store.

Review: Deviation by Christine Manzari

Title: Deviation (The Sophisticates #1)
Author: Christine Manzari
Source: Xpresso Book Tours
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopia
Release Date: August 9, 2013
Reviewed by: Jasmyn

Being a Sophisticate of the Program seems like it’d be a pretty sweet deal: a little genetic alteration and anyone can be smarter, faster, and stronger. It’s a dream come true. All you have to give up is your freedom. 

Cleo is a Sophisticate and she has a bright future in the Program. But she has a secret. When she gets upset, bad things happen. Explosive things. Things she can’t control. 

When her secret is discovered, she’s sent to the Academy to train in the military branch of the Program. She’s destined to be a human weapon in the war that’s been going on since Wormwood occurred nearly 30 years ago. She soon learns that although her ability is unique, there are others like her — other Sophisticates with lethal skills and odd code names like Archerfish and Mimic Octopus.

Immersed in a dangerous game of supernatural powers and dubious motives, Cleo doesn’t know who to trust. Ozzy, the annoyingly attractive cadet who has perfect aim in weapons class and deviant lips behind closed doors, begs her not to use her powers. He’s the golden boy of the Program, but can she trust him? Or will she find herself a target, caught in his crosshairs?

After an awful terrorist attack, the government responds by hand picking couples to have genetically engineered children.  These children become property of the Program and are super intelligent and gifted physically.  A small sample of these children have discovered extra abilities - ones they can't understand and don't know where they came from.  Cleo is one of these children.

Deviation was quite an adventure.  We start out somewhat in the dark - just as Cleo is - and discover some pretty incredible things.  There are also some pretty incredible people - one of which is names Ozzy.  He seems to be everything she hates about the Program, but she can't seem to stay away from him either.  He's too perfect and she can't get him off her mind.  He ends up being right in the middle of all the drama going on around her, so she can't trust him.

All of the characters in this book were amazing.  They were easy to identify with and fun to read about.  I even loved the ones I hated, which is hard to do.  I really wanted to be the one code names Mimic Octopus - such a cool person.  The relationships between these people also develop and go in so unexpected ways.

There was only one scene near the end at the roller skating rink that I got really confused and had to read several times before I understood what was going on.  It was a chaotic scene to begin with, but some of the cues to what the character was seeing weren't quite enough for me to get it right away.

They had exactly nineteen minutes to decide what to do next.
They had nineteen minutes until a geomagnetic wave washed over the Earth, frying every electrical device created by humans, blacking out entire continents, and every satellite in their sky.
Nineteen minutes to say goodbye to the world they knew, forever, and to prepare for a new Earth, a new Sun.

Generations after solar storms destroyed nearly all human technology on Earth, humans reverted to a middle ages-like existence, books are burned as heresy, and all knowledge of the remaining technology is kept hidden by a privileged few called the Reticents.
Alana, a disfigured slave girl, and Recks, a traveling minstrel and sometimes-thief, join forces to bring knowledge and books back to the human race. But when Alana is chosen against her will to be the Vessel, the living repository for all human knowledge, she must find the strength to be what the world needs even if it's the last thing she wants.

Lisa T. Cresswell
Lisa, like most writers, began scribbling silly notes, stories, and poems at a very young age. Born in North Carolina, the South proved fertile ground to her imagination with its beautiful white sand beaches and red earth. In fifth grade, she wrote, directed and starred in a play "The Queen of the Nile" at school, despite the fact that she is decidedly un-Egyptian looking. Perhaps that's why she went on to become a real life archaeologist?
Unexpectedly transplanted to Idaho as a teenager, Lisa learned to love the desert and the wide open skies out West. This is where her interest in cultures, both ancient and living, really took root, and she became a Great Basin archaeologist. However, the itch to write never did leave for long. Her first books became the middle grade fantasy trilogy, The Storyteller Series. Her first traditionally published work, Hush Puppy, is now available from Featherweight Press.
Lisa still lives in Idaho with her family and a menagerie of furry critters that includes way too many llamas!

Because of what you are, the Believers will hunt you down.

Voices told Lucas Darby to run. Voices no one else can hear. He’s warned his sister not to look for him, but Rayne refuses to let her troubled brother vanish on the streets of LA. In her desperate search, she meets Gabriel Stewart, a runaway with mysterious powers and far too many secrets. Rayne can’t explain her crazy need to trust the strange yet compelling boy—to touch him—to protect him even though he scares her.

A fanatical church secretly hunts psychic kids—gifted “Indigo” teens feared to be the next evolution of mankind—for reasons only “the Believers” know. Now Rayne’s only hope is Gabe, who is haunted by an awakening power—a force darker than either of them imagine—that could doom them all.

This book reminds me a bit of several TV shows - especially The Tomorrow People.  A new breed of human has evolved with special powers.  In Indigo Awakening, the powers are different for everyone - and the "normal" people that know about them are quite scared.  A group knows as the Believers is determined to get rid of them all - they don't care that most of them are just kids.

Enter Lucas and Rayne Darby.  Lucas is an indigo kid and Rayne is his normal sister who doesn't have a clue what is going on at the beginning.  She only knows Lucas is in trouble.  I didn't quite connect to either character - there was too much jumping around to really get attached.  We also meet Gabe - he's something else completely different.  I feel closer to him than most of the other characters by the end - and I really loved his "dog".

This story is full of build up as the Believers hunt for Lucas and try following Rayne and Gabe to find him.  Lots and lots of build up to a knock down fight that just didn't quite live up to my expectations.  It was good - things went bad, things went right, the story move don.  I didn't expect such a major show down so early in the series and since it was seemed so big, I wonder where the author is going to take us next.  I'll find out soon.  Crystal Fire is in my bag and ready to go.

About the Author
I've always been a writer. I grew up duct taping my novels together, started writing complete manuscripts in high school and studied creative writing at Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduating, I decided it was finally time to actually give my dream career a chance. So, of course, I started writing a young adult paranormal romance series -- and no, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon. I've been a true paranormal supporter for my entire life! I blame my obsession almost completely on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my all-time favorite television show. And, before you ask: Yes, I own every season... even the post WB ones! I especially challenge anyone to watch the first three seasons and not fall in love with Angel, securing a lifelong love of vampires! Other culprits of my paranormal obsession are some of my favorite authors: JK Rowling, Raymond Feist, Meg Cabot, Richelle Mead, Lynne Ewing and Tamora Pierce.

When Elizabeth Ashton

Veils, Oregon, she is smitten by its quaint mystery; but the surrounding forest
holds an enchantment she didn’t think existed, and worse, a most terrifying
monster. The town claims it vicious and evil, but Elizabeth suspects something

teeth, the monster’s eyes speak to her: wolf-like and ringed with gold, yet
holding an awareness that can only be human. That’s when Elizabeth knows she is
the only one who can see the struggling soul trapped inside, the soul to which
she is moved.

Secretly, Elizabeth befriends the beast at night, discovering there’s more to
his story and that the rising of the sun transforms him into a human more
complex than his beastly self. Elizabeth eventually learns that his curse is
unlike any other and that a single murderous act is all that stands between him
and his freedom. Though love is not enough to break his curse, it may be the
only means by which the unimaginable can be done: sacrifice a beauty for the

About the Author
Though Jennie Davenport was raised throughout the Midwest, she now lives
in the little desert mining town of Bagdad, Arizona, where six guys beg for her
constant attention: a husband, three young, blond sons, a German shepherd with
a name much mightier than his disposition (Zeus), and a black cat named Mouse.
When she isn’t trying to run her home with as little casualties as possible,
Jennie loves snuggling with her family, laughing with her friends, delving into
brilliant entertainment of any vein, and playing outside. Despite the way being
a writer is in her blood, and the wheels of her writerly mind are constantly
turning, Jennie likes to think that in another life, she would have been a
Broadway star. Or an American Idol finalist.

Jennie lives for the fall, and not just because of her adoration for the
NFL (Go Broncos!). In her perfect world, she would have the springs, summers,
and falls of Colorado, and the winters of Arizona—someplace where the climate
and weather would allow her to go on a trail run all year round. But even
though she prefers the pines and mountains, she is a devoted fan of all nature,
from sandy beaches to woodsy cabins, and all are her greatest inspiration. She
believes nature is one of the best healing remedies, with a magic all its own.

Jennie’s passion for writing is the way she survives, and is as vital to
her sanity as oxygen, caffeine, food, and music. Even before she began writing
it, well-told, original, and character-driven romance was always her weak spot.
Add the paranormal or magical realism element and she may never make it back to
