The Bliss Quote Hop

The Bliss Quote Hop!!!

To be released on March 18, 2013

Like his fallen brother Lucifer, Hadrian has been ordered by his fellow angels into a reflective state know as the Bliss.

Having also grown enamored by the same darkness that inhabits human souls, he feels that Lucifer's banishment was too severe.

Forever influenced by that horrific event, Hadrian vows revenge and ventures to Earth to follow him, unwittingly starting an eternal competition for the control of human and angelic souls alike.

In this Angel Star novella, THE BLISS will show how the battle between dark and light truly began.


It is almost time for a decision to be made, and it is with deep regret that I fear that my brother will
be the one who will not choose wisely. He must choose wisely.

Monday Review: Open Heart by Emlyn Chand


Simmi Shergill's life is a mess. Her powers of psychic feeling are on the fritz, and Grandon Township's sudden population boom has brought quite a few unsavory characters to town. She also looks like an over-blown balloon in her size 14 pants, but not even starving herself seems to be helping.

At least she has Alex, the boyfriend who loves her so much he'd do anything for her. Last summer, he even risked his life to protect her from the mysterious boy everyone was convinced wanted to kill her.

Just one problem: she's not so sure she feels the same way. Is Alex really the man of her dreams? Why can't she stop fixating on her would-be killer, Dax? Part of her wants to run screaming in the other direction whenever Dax is around, while the other part longs to run into his embrace, no matter whom she'd hurt or what she'd risk.

Simmi's loyalty is on the line. Whom will she choose—the blind seer who loves her, or the charming telekinetic with "bad idea" written all over him? Emotions run high in the tension-packed book two of the Farsighted series.

Let me tell you, that this was a very complicated book for me to rate, first I loooved the book, the stories are so real, the characters deal with so many issues that any teenager deals with, and me as a mother was scare about thinking that sooner than I think my kids will be dealing with this kind of stuff.

This is the sequel of Farsighted, awesome is that, in the first book we get into this world through Alex's pov, now we do it through Simi's view, and first you will find Simmi very likeble, but with every page, arggg I wanted to kill her, so insecure and immadure, not seeing what the right decisions were, but then I realize that she is a teenager!! you know and sometimes teenagers are so mean and crazy and confused, and I was amaze by the way Emlyn Chand is able to integrate so very real issues of teenagers life to a magical and mystical world.

If you liked Farsighted you must definitely read this book, also I can't wait for the next books in this series.

Review: Farsighted by Emlyn Chand

Alex Kosmitoras's life has never been easy. The only other student who will talk to him is the school bully, his parents are dead broke and insanely overprotective, and... oh yeah, he's blind.
Just when he thinks he'll never have a shot at a normal life, an enticing new girl comes to their small Midwest town all the way from India. Simmi is smart, nice, and actually wants to be friends with Alex. Plus she smells like an Almond Joy bar. Sophomore year might not be so bad after all.

Alex is in store for another new arrival—an unexpected and often embarrassing ability to "see" the future. Try as he may, Alex is unable to ignore his visions, especially when they suggest Simmi is in mortal danger.

With the help of the mysterious psychic next door and friends who come bearing gifts of their own, Alex embarks on his journey to change the future.
So, when I start reading this book, it was actually refreshing, reading a book from a teenager boy point of view, was awesome, different, exciting, and as I just say it was refreshing. Alex is a pretty much normal boy, what I loved about him and all the characters in this book is that they are pretty real, they are not perfect, better of all they are not saints, they, as almost all teenagers, are selfish, selfconcern, insecure and immature. That's why sometimes I just wanted to close the book and stop reading it, but the story in itself was so alluring I just couldn't stop.
Emlyn Chand is an awesome writer, she use reality, she use fantasy and pulls them together, and she gets great results. I really enjoy this book, because it makes you see reality through the "eyes" of a blind kid, and how this fact doesn't affect the common issues of a teenager, he falls in love, he is jelous, he has fears and over all he has amazing friends. I strongly recommend you to get into the Farsighted world, it is magic, and enchanting. You will totally love some characters, and totally hate another, but you will enjoy it a lot.
Four Crazy Book Cats for Farsighted.
