Waiting on Wednesday: The Disasters

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine in which we share a book that we are eagerly anticipating!

This week’s pre-publication “can’t-wait-to-read” selection is:

 

The Disasters by M.K. England

The Disasters

 

 

From Goodreads:

Hotshot pilot Nax Hall has a history of making poor life choices. So it’s not exactly a surprise when he’s kicked out of the elite Ellis Station Academy in less than twenty-four hours.

But Nax’s one-way trip back to Earth is cut short when a terrorist group attacks the Academy. Nax and three other washouts escape—barely—but they’re also the sole witnesses to the biggest crime in the history of space colonization. And the perfect scapegoats.

On the run and framed for atrocities they didn’t commit, Nax and his fellow failures execute a dangerous heist to spread the truth about what happened at the Academy.

They may not be “Academy material,” and they may not get along, but they’re the only ones left to step up and fight.

 

This sounds like a good time all around. Sign me up!

 Just Pretending by Leah & Kate RooperJust Pretending (The Chicago Falcons #3) by Leah and Kate Rooper
Publication Date:  November 5, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled Teen Crush

It’s not easy being royal. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline wears her crown proudly, but between her duties and her overprotective big brother, the idea of romance is just a dream. But a chance encounter in Chicago changes all that….

Sure, seventeen-year-old Tyler Evans loves playing hockey, but he’s more concerned about providing for his dad and little sister. Then he meets Eva–and falls head-over-heels in love—and he has two more problems. One, she’s his best friend’s little sister. Two, she wears a crown.

But then Eva accidentally mistakes Tyler for a visiting prince, and for the first time, Tyler doesn’t feel like a nobody. He knows he has to tell her the truth…but not yet.

His plan? To keep up the royal charade as long as it takes to convince Eva he’s the guy for her. Even if he’s lying to everyone…including himself.

Disclaimer: May cause disillusionment. Those girls looking to find their Prince Charming might consider scouting out hockey rinks.

GUEST POST/DELETED SCENE

We’re including a deleted scene that occurs during one of the most intense moments of the book! This is the original scene when Tyler Evans’ charade of posing as Prince Tiberius is discovered. We loved this scene when we wrote it, and thought it was totally hilarious and fitting for Tyler’s best friend, Prince Daniel, who is super dramatic and hot-headed. Ultimately, we decided to re-write this scene to be less comedic and more serious so it would fit the tone of the book better. We still have a soft spot for this crazy, slapstick reveal 🙂

I push Tiberius’s long mop of hair out of my eyes and blink rapidly. I stare into the gaping faces of the banquet. Somehow in our tussle, we’d burst through the double doors back into the banquet hall. I can only imagine what we look like. I touch my lip, feel blood there. I want to look away but I can’t. All the eyes of the dinner party are on me…and the two princes in a heap beside me. Madison is front and centre, for once as stunned and silent as everyone else. The Queen Dowager looks like she might faint.

“What is going on?” Evangeline cuts through the fray, her voice sailing through the air like the toast of a glass. She looks so worried, and my heart aches. I did this to her.

“Tiberius,” she says and starts forward. “You’re hurt.”

Daniel leaps to his feet and blocks her path. “Don’t, Eva,” he says. “Don’t waste one more breath on that guy.”

“W-What?” Eva says, looking past Daniel at me.

“I caught him in the hallway,” Daniel says, not caring about the dignitaries and officials watching, “making out with some girl.”

Eva takes a small breath, her throat bobbing ever so slightly. Her eyes go blank and glossy. “T-Tiberius…is this true?”

Daniel steps toward her. “Don’t worry, Evans and I handled it. He’ll rue the day he messed with Daniel Sacachelli’s little sister.” He reaches for her, but she steps out of his grasp. She’s still looking behind him, her eyes trained on me.

“You…you made me believe that I was special,” she whispers. “That I was finally heard.” She steps around her brother.

“Eva, don’t,” Daniel says, trying to grab her arm again.

“Daniel!” she says, her voice escalating. He backs away from her.

Her steps are firm and deliberate as she walks toward me, still tangled up with the real Tiberius. I can’t look at her anymore. My body feels like an engine that’s run out of gas. There’s no more running, no more stories. There’s no Madison or Millie to dig me out of this one.

It’s time to face what I’ve done.

“Stand up,” she orders. A queen’s voice.

Tiberius and I both shuffle to our feet, eyes downcast.

“Evans, you can come—” Daniel says, but Eva holds up a single finger. He silences.

Then she strikes me across the face with the palm of her hand.

“Eva!” Daniel roars. “What are you doing?”

Eva’s whole body is shaking. Her teeth are gritted together and tendrils of hair have fallen loose around her face. “Was it all a lie?” she chokes.

“No,” I say. Because it wasn’t.

Daniel rushes over and throws an arm over my shoulder. “What the hell, Eva? Don’t take this out on Evans!”

My whole body shuts down. All I can do is bow my head. My cheek stings.

“Evans?” Eva says, blinking wildly. “You said you caught Tiberius with another…”

“Yeah,” Daniel says, releasing me and grabbing the scruff of Prince Tiberius’s collar. He gives a little peep. “Prince Tiberius? Your true love?”

“N-No…” Eva says, shaking her head and gesturing to me. “This is Prince Tiberius.”

But then the real Tiberius throws his head back and brays with laughter. “There is only ONE Prince Tiberius,” he says, his accent thick on every word. “And that is mou.”

“What the hell is going on here?” Daniel says, eyes flying between Eva and me. “Tyler…”

“Tyler,” Eva says, as if the word were toxic on her tongue. “Ty…”

Suddenly, Madison is beside Eva, gently touching her arm. “Eva, maybe we should let the boys get cleaned up…everyone’s watching.”

Eva doesn’t even acknowledge her. “Who,” she says, her voice cutting like a blade, “is Prince Tiberius?”

The real Prince Tiberius sweeps into a bow. “At your service, Your Highness.”

Eva grabs my chin and forces me to stare at her. “Then who are you?”

My words are more breath than voice. “Tyler Evans,” I say. “I’m…” I’m what? A hockey player? Daniel’s friend? A liar? All true, but they all feel so empty. “I’m nobody.”

“All this time,” she says, “you were lying to me?” Her hand falls from my face.

I stare at her pleadingly. “I only did it because…I wanted to be with you. I did it because…” I shake my head, feel my eyes start to sting. “Because I love you.”

“How can you possibly love me,” she breathes, “when everything about you is a lie?”

“Eva—” I reach for her hand.

“Don’t touch me!” she yells, her voice echoing through the ballroom.

“Someone tell me what the hell is going on,” Daniel says. His body tenses like a bow string. “Or I’m going to start making my own conclusions, and that’s not a good idea for anybody.”

“No,” Madison mumbles quietly, “it’s really not.”

“It’s my fault,” I choke out. “When I picked Eva up from the airport, I had lost Tiberius…so…so I pretended to be him.”

Slowly, Daniel looks between Eva and I. “You…you pretended to be Tiberius. Which means…” His gaze settles on me. “You’re the Tiberius that Eva is in love with.”

There are a hundred pairs of eyes on me, but there’s only one I care about. Eva looks at me as if I’m a stranger. As if we hadn’t laughed together, spilled our secrets to one another, felt the touch of each other’s body. And the look she’s giving me right now is worse than the absent glare from when I tried to talk to her with my hockey gear on.

“Please,” I gasp. “Let me explain.”

Daniel paces back and forth, before stopping at the nearest wall. He slams his fist against it, rattling the decorative swords on their wooden mount. Then he stills, and says in a dark voice, “Oh, Evans. The time for explaining is past.”

In a single instant, Daniel moves, snatching the swords down from the wall and brandishing one as if he were some medieval knight. A gasp goes up from the audience.

“What are you doing?” I cry.

Daniel slides one of the swords across the floor. It lands right at my feet. “Pick it up,” he says. “I want to fight you like a man.”

“Those are antiques!” the Queen Dowager cries.

“Shush!” Madison says. “This is getting good.”

I stare down at the polished sword by my feet. “Daniel, come on. Just listen to me—”

“No, you listen,” Daniel snarls. “Listen to the sound my sword makes as I sheath it in your flesh!” With an animalistic roar, Daniel rushes at me, sword above his head.

Instinct takes over, and I grab the sword at my feet. Just in time, I bring it up to clang with Daniel’s.

There are screams and shouts from the onlookers, but Daniel doesn’t care. He grunts and swings his sword again. I barely have a chance to block it. “D-Dan, stop!”

“You betrayed me!” he roars, going for my flank. I counter, the sing of metal sounding through the banquet hall. “You betrayed my sister!”

All my years of playing video games rush back to me, as I counter Daniel’s flurry of attack. Is Daniel really attacking me with a sword? This cannot be happening! With a roar of my own, I strike back, slashing at Daniel’s left arm. He doesn’t get his sword up in time, and it slices through his black coat.

He looks down at the tear, then back up at me. With newfound rage, Daniel surges forward. Clang, clang, clang, our swords smash against one another. I’m being pushed back, closer to the wall. The sword is heavy and my muscles scream as I block Daniel’s assault again and again. But I’m too slow, and I see Daniel’s sword arc up and then swing down—

“ENOUGH!”

A giant black mace swings through the air, blocking Daniel’s sword from shaving off one of my blond curls. I turn and stare at its wielder.

Evangeline.

She holds the big mace tightly, her body hunched over, breathing ragged. The suit of arms near us rattles, empty-handed, from where Eva must have grabbed the mace.

“Enough,” she says again. “Get out. All of you.”

No one moves. She arcs the mace up in the air and slams it down onto the floor. “GET OUT!”

Slowly, everyone starts murmuring and shuffling toward the door. Eva drops the mace and turns away, her head in her hands.

“Eva—” I say.

“Don’t.” Her body stiffens. “I believed you. Every word.” She looks back, just the peek of her face over her shoulder. “You could have believed in me too.”

I fall to the ground, head in my arms. I hear Daniel’s sword clang to the ground, then his heavy footsteps as he walks away. The bustle of the crowd dies down as everyone leaves, and then the lights go out, only the candles on the walls still burning.

I sit alone in the dark. The candles flicker on.

WarOfStorms-final-500x750War of Storms (The Ryogan Chronicles #3)

by Erica Cameron
Publication Date:  November 5, 2018
Publisher:  Entangled Teen

The immortal mages have risen, and they’re out for blood.

Khya arrived at the Ryogan coast too late to stop the invasion. Now, cities are falling before the unrelenting march of an enemy army, and Khya’s squad is desperately trying to stay ahead of them. Warning the Ryogans, though, means leaving her brother imprisoned even longer. Time is running out for everyone.

How can her squad of ten stand against an army of ten thousand?

Calling in help from every ally she’s made in Ryogo, Khya tries to build a plan that won’t require sacrificing her friends or her brother. It’s a tough balance to find, especially when the leadership role she thought she wanted sits heavy on her shoulders, and her relationship with Tessen is beginning to crack under the strain.

The end is coming, and there’s no way to know who’ll be left standing when it hits.

Road to Publication

Not all roads are straight, and this is especially true of the paths between a novice writer and a published author. My own path definitely wasn’t without circles and curves.

Although I did major in creative writing while I was at Florida State University, that wasn’t what sparked the determination to write a novel and send it out into the world. That came, in a roundabout way, from Twilight. After my sister handed me a copy of the book, I discovered fanfiction online for the first time. And I started writing it. Every writer needs a way to prove to themselves they’re capable of not only getting an idea for a book but taking that all the way through to completion. Fanfiction was that for me.

Reassured of my own capability, I began to search for my own ideas to work on. The first book I wrote earned some interest from agents, but no one picked it up for representation. It took time, years, honestly, and two more books. Only after finishing the draft that would become my debut novel Sing Sweet Nightingale did things change. I won an award for unpublished writers from a chapter of Romance Writers of America, and then I went to Book Expo America (BEA) with a friend of mine, Lani Woodland, whose first book had been published the year before.

That’s where things got interesting.

During BEA, there are often parties in the evening hosted by various publishers, authors, and/or bloggers, and Lani had been invited to one such event. It was on a rooftop in Tribeca. Lani wasn’t familiar with Manhattan or comfortable navigating the subways on her own, so I brought her to the party….and then I sort of never left, deciding to quietly gatecrash instead. I couldn’t help it. Sunset over the river from a building on the water isn’t something to pass up when presented with the chance. I met dozens of wonderful people that night, but it was a conversation Lani pushed me into that had a lasting impact on my publishing career—she introduced me to the two women who would become my first editors. A couple months after that party, I’d sold my debut novel.

But I didn’t have an agent. My first agent came from a conference referral, someone I connected with at a Society for Children’s Book Writer’s and Illustrators event in Florida. It felt like a great match, so I signed with her and continued working on my debut.

I sold three more books, expanding the series my debut began, and kept writing. My agent took two very different projects on submission, searching for another editor who might love my work. Nothing sold. My second novel kept getting pushed back and delayed. The two projects on submission still didn’t sell. Deadly Sweet Lies, book two of The Dream War Saga, finally released. Soon after, my publisher told me the third book might not ever be released. It seemed that the “career” I’d been so excited to get started was already over just two years in.

Then, in 2015, I attended RT Convention in Dallas. I’d been lucky enough to get placed on a panel with some amazing authors of adult titles, and I had connected with a lot of the young adult authors who would be attending as well. We hung out, talked books—both our own and everyone else’s—and generally had a blast. What I didn’t expect (because I really was mostly convinced my days in publishing were coming to a close) was for two of those conversations I had during the convention to result in book deals. It was amazing. Somehow, both my Assassins duology and The Ryogan Chronicles trilogy sold by the end of that summer—Assassins to Riptide and Ryogan Chronicles to Entangled Teen.

My agent and I split a month after the convention ended.

Since 2015, I’ve published seven novels (including War of Storms), signed with a new agent, sold a science fiction trilogy to Entangled Teen, and gone back out on submission for the first time in years. Ups, downs, sideways spins, and unexpected loops—publishing has them all. While some trajectories are both straightforward and steady, it’s not guaranteed. If you get into publishing, no matter if you’re on the creative or the business side of the industry, the only promise is it’ll be one hell of an interesting ride.

Review: A Very Large Expanse Of The Sea

A Very Large Expanse of Sea

 

 

This may be a short review as I do not share the same thoughts on this book as many other readers do. I did not connect to it nor was I blown away by it. Maybe I’m just not the right reader for Mafi books.

I know this is an important book and I am not disputing that at all. I know that my thoughts and reactions to the book differ greatly from other readers. I liked the MC enough and I get why she was defensive and angry all of the time, but those two things made it hard for me to want to like her. She was constantly lashing out at people before getting to know their true intentions. I have been guilty of that myself and have worked hard to not do that, but sometimes old habits die hard.

Perhaps one of the big reasons I did not enjoy this story as much was because of the forced romance. I did not find that believable at all. Every time she talked about having almost instalove feelings for the boy, I found myself rolling my eyes. It felt awkward, forced, and out of place in this story. I don’t believe it was necessary in this story.

The other thing that I had a hard time with was the writing style. Mafi’s delivery felt broken, choppy, and jagged. Chapters could be one page or less and that was frustrating for me. It felt like complete thoughts or events or even points could not be properly expressed in the very short amount of page space they were given. I felt that way about her other books so maybe that is just me as a reader. It also felt super rushed, as if everything was wrapped up in a pretty bow in the last few pages. I am not ever a fan of books ending that way. Don’t take the entire book laying out the story and then BAM end it in two pages.

I know this is an important story and it will resonate with a lot of readers, sadly it was just not for me. I could not connect to any part of this. I know it will still be a beloved story for many people.

ARC Review: The Chaos of Now

The Chaos of Now

 

**I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for my honest opinion. My thoughts are my own.**

 

 

I have been struggling with my review for this book. I wanted to like it so much but it never clicked with me. A book about coding and hacking should be right up my alley but this story failed to prove to me it was about coding and hacking. What I read was a mash-up of several different stories… bullying, suicide, coming of age and broken families. It was almost like this story didn’t know what it wanted to be when it grew up.

I won’t do a short recap because as I stated above, this was a confusing story to read. I really expected the main focus of the story to be coding and hacking but it wasn’t. It seemed to center more around bullying and suicide – both very serious and relevant topics. However, I do not believe they were handled well in this story. I feel strongly that the message the author was trying to get across about these two topics was lost in the mess that was just too many topics crammed into one story.

The MC was a very unlikable character. I could not find one redeeming quality about him. He claimed to be this self-learned master coder/hacker but he walked around most of the story talking about how sexually frustrated he was, how much he hated his new step-mom, how upset he was at his dad, and how he was basically full of teenage angst. Pick ONE topic and stick with it. All of these elements combined made for a poorly developed story that caused me to never connect with any character or the story.

As mentioned, I felt the topics of bullying and suicide were almost skirted over. There were times the characters talked about their classmate’s suicide as a selfish act. I’m sorry, what? How about the author use this platform as a way to really talk about the subjects and make a statement. Instead, it felt like it was thrown into the story as an afterthought and a way to move the story along. I was appalled by this.

I’m sure there is an audience for this story, one that will really enjoy it, but sadly it was not me. I’m not upset that I read it but I am disappointed by what I read.

 Return to the series BuzzFeed compared to Ready Player One in the second book in a new fast-paced trilogy from New York Times bestselling authors Jason Segel and Kirsten Miller that’s perfect for fans of HBO’s Westworld

Simon would have done anything to save his best friend after a mysterious accident almost killed her–including follow her into a virtual world. And what he and Kat discovered there was more terrifying than they could have ever imagined. Unwitting hospital patients are being forced to test a device that lets VR be experienced with all five senses. The technology is so advanced that it’s deadly.

Now the world’s biggest tech corporation is hunting Simon and Kat while war rages in Otherworld, the virtual world it created. Determined to destroy the Company, Simon and Kat must join forces with a hacker, a gangster, and a digital entity. But as they battle to save two worlds, they uncover an all-new threat to our world: the Company’s latest creation, an augmented-reality game called OtherEarth. Not only does OtherEarth kill, it has the power to erase the line between what’s real and what’s fantasy.

Review

While I loved the first book, this one suffered from Middle Book Syndrome. It did a good job of recapping what happened but most of the book was spent with the characters within the game of OtherWorld itself. Many chapters were spent describing new simulated characters, new Children, new worlds within the game. I felt there was just too much time spent describing things that did not matter to the overall story. Hence the reason I said this was a true Second Book.

Regardless, this was such a fast paced read that it was over before I knew it. The story took twists and turns I was not prepared for. It certainly set up for the next book, which I hope promises to be big.  If you are interested in a gripping read that has echos of Ready Player One and Warcross, you need to check out this book.
