About the Book:
Title: BLASTAWAY
Author: Melissa Landers
Pub. Date: July 9,2019
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Formats: Hardcover, eBook, audiobook
Pages: 304
Kyler Centaurus isn't your typical runaway. All he wanted was a
quick trip to the legendary Fasti Sun Festival. Who wouldn't want to see new
stars being born? Um, try Kyler's entire family. They couldn't care less about
mind-blowing wonders of science.
When an accidental launch sequence ends with Kyler hurtling
through space on the family cruiser, the thrill of freedom is cut short by two
space pirates determined to steal his ship. Not happening!
Luckily, Kyler bumps into Fig, a savvy young Wanderer who makes a
living by blowing up asteroids. She could really use a ride to Earth and Kyler
could really use a hand with the pirates.
But when Kyler learns the truth about Fig's mission, the two must
put aside their differences long enough to stop the threat of astronomical
proportions racing towards Earth.
======================================================
Exclusive Excerpt!

At some point, I must have fallen asleep.
I say that for two reasons. First, my chin was wet with drool, and
I hardly ever slobber on myself when I’m awake. And second, I was no longer on
Earth.
I sat bolt upright and stared out the window as distant stars
whizzed past in a blur. There were no planets in sight, and judging by the
swirling purple nebula ahead of me, this wasn’t the way to Nana’s house. I
checked the navigation screen and felt my mouth drop open. The flashing beacon
that represented my ship was halfway between Earth and Fasti.
(So you see, it is totally possible to steal a spaceship on
accident.)
I guess my hand hit the EXECUTE button when I fell asleep. And
because it would take just as long for me to turn around and go home as it
would to finish my journey, it made sense to keep going, right? Either way, my
parents would ground me into the afterlife, so I might as well earn the
sentence, right?
Right.
An electric thrill rushed through my veins when I thought about
the possibilities that lay ahead of me. Anything could happen on this trip.
Literally anything. I could discover a brand-new element. Or meet a secret race
of aliens. Or invent a new energy source. Or eat so much chocolate that I
puked. Either way, I had complete freedom to make this journey into whatever I
wanted, and once I realized that, there was no freaking way I could turn back.
It was like the universe had dropped a gift in my lap, a gift I had no
intention of returning.    
I wiped the drool off my chin and smiled.
“Hold onto your stars, Fasti. Here I come.”

Excerpt
ZEPHYR

Ezekiel motioned towards a gateway adorned with the skulls of giants. A shiver ran down Zephyr's spine. She curled her wings around herself for protection. Looking at the bones feels like a hex, she thought absently.

Embedded in the eye sockets of two of the three skulls were runes. She walked up to the gateway, doing her best not to gag at the stench of decay. Squatting to inspect the ground, Zephyr reasoned one of the runes was missing. There were only three realms, after all, Nightshade, Fae, and Human. The magic radiating from the runes matched that of the gateway. Zephyr glanced at the hilt of the ascended's broadsword. On the hilt, a gem reflected what little light there was inside of the cave.

There's no doubt it's the rune he seeks. That's the only way he could've pierced The Veil. So why is he asking me if I stole it? It doesn't make any sense!

Lost in her thoughts, Zephyr didn't notice Ezekiel approaching until it was too late.

"So?" Ezekiel boomed impatiently, mere inches away. She squawked in terror and leaped to her feet. Spinning around, Zephyr gulped as the guardian sheathed his sword and stepped forward in one fluid motion. Before she could step back, he lifted her chin upward, the palm of his hand resting on her throat. It's calloused... I always expected the highborn to be smooth all over.

"S-so. I don't know. I didn't borrow a rune. I borrowed—"

"Stole." He cut her off.

"Borrowed a key!" She snapped. Zephyr realized her mistake when a smug grin crept across Ezekiel's handsome face.

"Hmp. For a demon, you are a fool." His gleaming rows of perfectly straight teeth were begging to be knocked out. Zephyr believed he was her guardian angel. Now, she knew he was worse than an ogre!

Ezekiel bent forward, and his breath ghosted against Zephyr's skin. Something ethereal and sweet replaced the familiar smell of decay. With a curious expression, Ezekiel cupped her wounded cheek, thumb resting on her chapped lips. He murmured something too low to hear, but it sounded like an incantation to Zephyr's untrained ears. She shut her eyes tight with a grimace. She didn't want to see whatever he was summoning to obliterate her. To Zephyr's astonishment, her cuts and bruises began evaporating, leaving behind a faint translucent aura.

"You...healed me?" She asked dumbfounded.

He shrugged, "Naturally. I am ascended, not your neighborhood troll. Besides, you possess the key. Where is the grimoire of Alabaza the Brave?"

Daisies and Devotion Spotlight


Title: Daisies and Devotion
Author: 

Description:
Timothy Mayfield is ready to marry for love, but, since his personal finances are thinner than he’d like, he knows he’ll also need to find a wife with wealth. After receiving an unexpected inheritance, Timothy’s circumstances change, and he is free to pursue his “perfect woman”—one with blonde hair, blue eyes, a light laugh, arched eyebrows, elegant fingers, and a dazzling smile, among nearly twenty other characteristics. 

Maryann Morrington doesn’t match anything on Timothy’s list—except for wealth. An heiress in her own right, she is tired of men pursuing her only for her money. But at nearly twenty-two years old, and not a particularly stunning beauty, she can’t be as picky as her friend Timothy is.

The two friends end up playing matchmaker for each other. Timothy will find a decent gentleman for Maryann, and Maryann will prove to Timothy that his “perfect woman” doesn’t exist.

Until Miss Shaw comes to London.

Now, with Timothy’s heart captivated by the blonde, blue-eyed beauty, Maryann must decide if she should risk her heart and reveal her true feelings for her friend, or if she should settle for someone else. It’s an up-and-down game of “he loves me, he loves me not” with both hearts and friendship on the line.
