Sliding Beneath the Surface Blog Tour / Chapter & Review

Sliding Beneath The Surface
The St. Augustine Trilogy
Book 1


I shut Lobo’s door behind me without putting on my jacket and took a big breath of cold air. Standing there for a second, I felt like I had been running hard. God, my heart pounded so hard I thought it might split wide open, and that stupid headache throbbed even more. I hated leaving Carla like I did, but the time to get out of there had come.

Being away from Lobo was such a relief. With my eyes closed, I took another deep breath and let it out slowly. All that had gone on that afternoon rushed through my mind like a flooding river. Instantly, those panicky urges to turn around and run away while walking towards Lobo’s place with Carla popped up in my head. I opened my eyes again only to see that everything had gotten a lot darker than it was seconds before. A massive fog bank had somehow moved in over Matanzas Bay and already covered most of Lobo’s dock. As I watched, the rest of the dock disappeared into all that gray stuff as if it had never been there. Rapidly, a smaller wave of fog rolled over the tip of the peninsula and headed right for me at a speed fog should never move. It all happened so fast, I had no time to think or act. Long fingers of mist reached for the porch, and before I knew it, a cold wetness surrounded me.

“What the hell?” I whispered to myself. Talk about freaky. Yeah, it scared me—so much that I even turned around to go back into the house. Believe it or not, right then, facing old Lobo seemed better than dealing with that awful, weird fog. When I turned around though, I couldn’t find the house. All I could see was fog in every direction. Even so, I knew the front door had to be there directly in front of me, right? I mean I hadn’t moved more than a couple of feet away from it, so I stretched my arms out and slowly stepped forward.
After walking maybe five or six steps, I still hadn’t found the door or any part of the house. I know what you’re thinking. You’re sure I must have been hallucinating all of that or something. I don’t blame you. To be perfectly honest, I thought the same thing at first, but that cold, wet fog was very, very real.

“Carla!” I shouted, but my voice sounded muffled. “Lobo?” I yelled. At any second, I expected one of them to open the door and answer me. No such luck. I kept shouting anyway.

When I finally gave up yelling my lungs out, the absolute silence startled me. Like a thick blanket of insulation, the fog no longer allowed any sound in from the outside world—no birds chirping, no noises from boats out on the bay or traffic in the neighborhood. Nothing but total silence. I swear, it was so quiet I actually heard my heart beating. As I listened though, I noticed a darkness creeping into the fog. I’m telling you, it just got darker and darker as I stood there frozen in fear, with my head still aching. In less than a minute, I was in total blackness with only the feel of cold, wet fog all over me. Strangely enough, I also smelled something like pine needles. Pine trees. Pine needles. Something like that.

I didn’t know what to do. Lobo’s words about spirits and danger still swirled through my weary brain, reviving the memory of that deep blackness I had seen at the bottom of his carved ivory ball. For a moment, I wondered if I was dreaming somehow, but the feel of that cold fog all over my body told a different story. I turned around several times, hoping to see or hear something, anything. When that got me nowhere, the panic really started to build. Even in the cold, I could feel sweat trickling down my back and under my arms. I had never felt so alone.

“Wait. Wait a minute,” I said out loud, closing my eyes even though there was nothing to see. “Take it easy and think.” After sucking in a couple of deep breaths of cold air, I put on my jacket. Funny how that helped. Doing that one little thing for myself also calmed me down a little. Even my headache eased up a bit.

No matter what, I said to myself, you still have to be on Lobo’s porch. All you have to do is get down on your hands and knees and feel your way across the wood floor until you find the door. Why didn’t you think of that before, idiot?

To be Continued...

My Review

Sliding Beneath the Surface was amazing! It actually incorporated history into a great plot and made you want to learn more about what happened at St. Augustine’s. He makes a 15 year old boy, Jeff, goes through more then any other boy should. But luckily for Jeff he has a great friend Carla them together makes a pair for this paranormal ride that they each go on. I found myself laughing at so many parts at this book. Carla is also Jeff’s crush so it only makes this book more interesting!

With this being this author’s debut book I am amazed that he did so well! I will be reading more of this author’s work. I will be anxiously awaiting the next book in this series. And I will be buying more of this author’s books.

Hive (Species Intervention #6609 Book Four

 December 15, 2012

Putting them under her protection and that of the Hive, she meets Tobi, the elderly matriarch of the small herd who will sacrifice herself to save a human and in return is rewarded with the ultimate gift the Womb can bestow.

Horror visits the struggling survivors as they learn the Earth will not support habitation for at least another one hundred years. But the biggest shock comes from the Womb as it extracts a huge penalty from the hapless people, tolling the demise of the human race.

My Opinion:

This series was a little weird I have to admit,but I love this series! Netty goes through alot in every single series. There was a part of the book that I was completely shocked by and did not see it coming at all! I loved the relationship and the love between Echo and Barney. It was heartbreaking when Barney was left alone to face the bombs, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time during that part wondering if Barney was going to make it out alive or die in the bombings. This series shows the dark side and unhaman us humans can be.  Especially the way animals are treated it was unbelievable. There was also bad language and some of the scenes in this series I do not recommend you let anyone under the age of 16 years old to read it.  Scotty's life changes probably as much as Netty's and Abby's. This series made me cry, it made me laugh, it made me angry. This series is a must read and I anxiously await to read The One!

The Illumine Series( book 1 and 2) by Alivia Anders

The Illumine Series (book 1 and 2)
by Alivia Anders

 October 5, 2012

Books Description (taken from amazon):

Book One: Illumine

The electrifying beginning to The Illumine Series!

Every action comes with a price.
Let the flames begin.

For the past five months Essallie Hanley has been trying to forget about the frightening murder of her boyfriend. Haunted by vivid nightmares and hallucinations of the event she does anything she can to pretend she's like every other normal girl in High School. 

Only Essallie is far from normal. Able to conjure blue fire and a shimmering silhouette of wings from her body, she seeks the only known solace left to her name; her first home in Belfast, Maine. 

But she soon realizes that her return home is only the beginning of a long and twisted road taking her as far from her humanity as possible, with Kayden, the demon originally summoned to slaughter her, leading the way. Unable to touch her but oddly curious, he joins Essallie in her search to find out just what she is. But neither of them were prepared for the secrets they've begun to unravel, secrets that will change Essallie and everyone around her forever. 

Book Two: Obumbrate

Some secrets are dangerous to keep.
Some secrets are too dangerous to tell.

Essallie Hanley just wishes her life could go back to normal. But what's normal when you carry the burden of knowing you're a half-angel created for war, that the only person who can help you is a demon still waiting to kill you, and that your only chance for salvation rested in a boy who died in front of you? 

If Essallie had turned her back on everything she'd learned, she could have made the most of her fractured life. That is, until Kayden told her that she's a ticking time-bomb; that at any given moment her blood could betray her, her veins burning her alive from the inside out until nothing but ash remains. 

Desperate to find answers, and possibly find her only chance for survival, Essallie heads back for New York City, back to the place where it all began. With every answer comes a price, and with every price the risks and rewards become greater. But when Essallie soon finds herself the target of an unknown hunter determined to have her, all appears to be at wits' end. Until Ari, a man claiming to be Nephilim, steps in. Charming, gentle, and boldly brave, he seems to be exactly what Essallie needs.

Could Ari be the missing piece of her puzzle, or is he the promise of her demise?

I was given these books by the author for my honest review! 

My Opinion:

This series is going on my top ten list that is my favorite of all time! It took my breath away sometimes and I am anxiously awaiting for book 3, I might have to stay on the edge of my seat waiting on it! Essallie had my full attention the entire time of book one. Alivia Anders is a very talented author, she made the characters seem so real and all of them had so much emotion and was describe beautifully. This review will be one of those where I only talk about the writing skills, and how the plot and everything else was because if I keep typing about these books I will give away to much that's how amazing this story was. Aliva had an amazing idea about this plot and she executed it perfectly! Read the books you won't be disappointed! As for me I will be waiting by my kindle for the day book 3 comes out.
