I have had the privilege to read some really amazing books in the past couple of months. Discovering authors that I've never heard of before, brand new series. It's been an exciting experience. Courtney Cole is the author of Every Last Kiss (The Bloodstone Saga #1). You can find my review here. While this series is considered YA, I found it refreshing and not at all too immature to keep my interest. I've found that I tend to walk a fine line when it comes to my YA reads but this was a nice balance and an intriguing storyline.
Product discription via amazon.com...
What would you do if you held fate in your hands?
Macy Lockhart is a normal girl with an abnormal bird-shaped birthmark on her wrist. She doesn’t even think twice about the odd marking until strange things begin happening to her and an anonymous gift is left on her doorstep… a beautiful, blood-red pendant. A bloodstone.
It isn’t long before she is surrounded by craziness… ancient high priests, visions and memories that she can’t explain. And that’s just the beginning.
She quickly comes to the realization that the bloodstone wasn’t just given to her… it was returned to her. It has been hers all along, for thousands of years. She has lived hundreds of lives and all of them have been important.
But before she can even come to terms with that craziness, she is forced to return to one of them that was particularly tragic….a previous doomed life where she lived as Cleopatra’s handmaiden, Charmian.
Fate, the very thing that she is born to protect, is being threatened in a way that would destroy history as we know it. The fate of the world literally sits on her shoulders. But of course, just handling that small issue would be too easy.
Unless she interferes with destiny, her soul-mate will die. Can she really stand aside and allow the love of her life to die all over again?
You can purchase Every Last Kiss via amazon.com for only .99. What's even better, the second enstallment to the Bloodstone Saga, Fated, is also now available via amazon.com.
