While at Once Upon A Book Author Signing 2017 I was walking (against my family's wishes, Stacey’s wishes) looking for books while on maternity leave. I was 39 weeks and 1 day pregnant, and was told not to go into labor before August 14th, thankfully that did not happen. I came across Kyleigh Castronaro table and loved the cover of her books she had displayed. She was telling me about the Twisted Fairy Tales series and how they're your favorite fairy tale retellings with supernatural elements like vampires, witches and werewolves. I had to grab a copy and I was surely glad that I had!
Quill, her chosen name, is the main character of this book. There was a hostile takeover, only the ones that were deemed pure enough were allowed to live in the city, the others that were able to escape, and became the “desecrated”. Quill was now considered to be a desecrated because she escaped the city. She could no longer live under her father’s influence, only thing she regretted was she was not able to take her sister with her. Once on the outside you can become someone new and that's why she chose the name Quill.
I have said in the past that I do not like love triangles, the start to this story was heading in the direction of love triangles; and in one instant that was cut out and it was like yes to all that is holy thank you for not making me have to sit through a love triangle and listening to people whine, “do I want to be with this guy or this guy.” Thank you for taking that off the table. Enough of that rant and actually get to the good part!
Quill goes into the city to find their truck that had been hijacked, there were people with the truck and she uncovered that there was a lot more going on then what she initially knew. She was followed by a man, he tried attacking her, he was caught off guard that she fought back, and mentally fought back. Yes he is a vampire and you learn this later in the book. You learn that he is a beast and she is beauty! ( see where this is going)
I don't want to give to much away, I recommend reading this book. Kyleigh’s telling is captivating draws you in. She weaves the story where it is easy to follow and keeps you turning pages until you realize that you have reached the end of the book.
Check out Kyliegh Castronaro's other books with the links following. I know I cannot wait until I can get my hands on her other books! While you are reading this book on these brisk mornings what better to be paired with this then that of a Spinach and Feta Quiche. Head on over to the Tasty Morsels page to print the recipe and try it out for yourself!
I get so excited every time my aunt (Stacey Rourke) has a new book that comes out. I was excited to see that she teamed up with Tish Thawer. They both are amazing authors who both bring a lot of talent to this book. They work amazing as a team. Their writing styles flow together very well.
TS901 is a story about the government tainting the water with the TS901 chemical (fluoride and vitamins) it was supposed to sustain the health of the human race. However when the government released the chemical into the water supply it caused a genetic mutation in some and nothing in others.
The main character, Thia Kelly, is now in hiding along with the rest of the inflicted outcasts also known as the maly’s. She is looked up to because she works well with the non inflicted humans and the inflicted, she tries keeping the peace between the two worlds. There has been a lot of high tension between the two worlds.
Evan Daniels is the son of one of the leading Generals, he has been inflicted with the TS901. Thia and Evan had a love that was blossoming, but the government had other ideas with Evan and made him Patient #1. Evan turns himself in. He wants to help the Maly’s and thinks that by turning himself over, he will help the government to find a cure. Little does he know what he really is getting himself into.
Thia going about her business after not seeing Evan in a while has learned that they put a bounty out for him. She knows that there is no way that he is as dangerous as what the government says. She doesn't believe the story that is on the news about Evan. Thia knows that she needs to save him. So she gets together a plan and sets off to save her boyfriend. This is where Gigi and other characters are introduced and Gigi is awesome love her character and love her mutation. Maybe a side story can be written about her and how she came to be. Hint hint Stacey and Tish.
Thia looks normal on the outside, and this is why she in fact can get along with all the inflicted and the non inflicted. Every turning of the page you hope that she reveals what her mutation is. When she finally uses her mutation you are stunned and can’t believe that she was ever willing to hide the mutation that she has and how she was able to do so. I will not give away exactly what she is you will have to read the story for yourself.
I recommend this book to all. Its fast paced action packed and of course witty humor is thrown in, which makes for a great read. With this book I am going to pass along the drink recipe for Mutation that goes great with this book and was created by Stacey. I mean perfect friday night mix, good books and a good drink.
