AlienatedALIENATED by Melissa Landers

Interplanetary relations have never been more exciting! The first in a funny, romantic YA sci-fi series.

Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for.

Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore.

Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him.

But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.

Why Why YA/NA?

I never made a conscious decision to write YA (or adult romance, for that matter, which I also publish under a pen name). I simply wrote the story of my heart and then figured out who the target audience was.

 

Do you have a favorite YA/NA series?

I’ll have to go with Harry Potter. It’s a hands-down YA favorite, even though it started as a MG.

 

What is your favorite thing to do outside writing?

I love reading, movies, hiking and going on quiet walks. Can you tell I’m an introvert? 🙂

 

Name something you cannot stand.

Am I allowed to say assholes? (If not, just ignore this answer.) Because I really can’t stand people who are mean simply because they think it’s amusing.

 

iPad or Surface?

Since I don’t know what Surface is, I’ll have to go with iPad.

 

Netflix, Amazon or Hulu?

Netflix! I love binge-watching my favorite shows, and I’m hooked on “Orange is the New Black.”

 

Favorite TV Show?

It’s a tie between “The Walking Dead” and “The Big Bang Theory,” two vastly different programs

 

Favorite Dessert?

Oh, this is easy. Chocolate lava cake with a scoop of vanilla ice cream melting all over the plate. Mmm!

 

What is the first thing on your bucket list?

I’d love to visit Tahiti and stay in one of those little huts built on stilts right over the water. Sadly, I’m going to have to sell a lot more books before I can afford that trip.

 

Please tell us about your latest or upcoming release.

ALIENATED just launched this winter, and the sequel INVADED releases February 3, 2015. This series is light, romantic sci-fi that follows the adventures of valedictorian Cara Sweeney and her smoking-hot alien exchange student, Aelyx.

 FIRST FROST by Jennifer Estep

#0.5 Prequel E-Story

Genre: 

Type: 

Release Date: July 2011

I am Gwen Frost, and I have a Gypsy gift.  It’s called psychometry — that’s a fancy way of saying that I see images in my head and get flashes of other people’s memories off almost everything I touch, even guys.

My gift makes me kind of nosy. Okay, okay, maybe a lot nosy — to the point of obsession sometimes. I want to know everything about everyone around me. But even I don’t want to know the secret that a girl in my class is hiding or the terrible loss that will send me to a new school — Mythos Academy, where the teachers aren’t preparing us for the SATs, but to battle Reapers of Chaos.  Now I have no friends and no idea how my gift fits in with all these warrior whiz kids.  The only thing I do know is that my life is never, ever going to be the same …

Note: This e-story takes place before the events in Touch of Frost. It is available throughAmazonBarnes & Noble, iTunesKobo, and other online booksellers as a 99-cent download, not as a free story here on the website. You don’t have to read it to start or enjoy the series, but if you want to see exactly how Gwen winds up at Mythos Academy, you might enjoy it.

TOUCH OF FROST by Jennifer Estep

Book #1

Genre: 

Type: 

Release Date: August 2011

 

My name is Gwen Frost, and I go to Mythos Academy — a school of myths, magic and warrior whiz kids, where even the lowliest geek knows how to chop off somebody’s head with a sword and Logan Quinn, the hottest Spartan guy in school, also happens to be the deadliest.

But lately, things have been weird, even for Mythos. First, mean girl Jasmine Ashton was murdered in the Library of Antiquities. Then, someone stole the Bowl of Tears, a magical artifact that can be used to bring about the second Chaos War. You know, death, destruction and lots of other bad, bad things. Freaky stuff like this goes on all the time at Mythos, but I’m determined to find out who killed Jasmine and why — especially since I should have been the one who died …

KISS OF FROST by Jennifer Estep

Book #2

Genre: 

Type: 

Release Date: December 2011

 

Logan Quinn was trying to kill me. My Spartan classmate relentlessly pursued me, swinging his sword at me over and over again, the shining silver blade inching closer to my throat every time. A smile tugged up his lips, and his ice-blue eyes practically glowed with the thrill of battle …

I’m Gwen Frost, a second-year warrior-in-training at Mythos Academy, and I have no idea how I’m going to survive the rest of the semester. One day, I’m getting schooled in swordplay by the guy who broke my heart — the drop-dead gorgeous Logan who slays me every time. Then, an invisible archer in the Library of Antiquities decides to use me for target practice. And now, I find out that someone at the academy is really a Reaper bad guy who wants me dead. I’m afraid if I don’t learn how to live by the sword — with Logan’s help — I just might die by the sword …

DARK FROST by Jennifer Estep

Book #3

Genre: 

Type: 

Release Date: June 2012

 

I’ve seen so many freaky things since I started attending Mythos Academy last fall.  I know I’m supposed to be a fearless warrior, but most of the time, I feel like I’m just waiting for the next Bad, Bad Thing to happen. Like someone trying to kill me — again.

Everyone at Mythos Academy knows me as Gwen Frost, the Gypsy girl who uses her psychometry magic to find lost objects — and who just may be dating Logan Quinn, the hottest guy in school.  But I’m also the girl the Reapers of Chaos want dead in the worst way.  The Reapers are the baddest of the bad, the people who murdered my mom.  So why do they have it in for me?  It turns out my mom hid a powerful artifact called the Helheim Dagger before she died. Now, the Reapers will do anything to get it back. They think I know where the dagger is hidden, but this is one thing I can’t use my magic to find. All I do know is that the Reapers are coming for me — and I’m in for the fight of my life.

CRIMSON FROST by Jennifer Estep

Book #4

Genre: 

Type: 

Release Date: January 2014

 

For a moment, a face flashed before my eyes — the most hideous face I’d ever seen.  No matter how hard I tried to forget what had happened, I saw him everywhere I went. It was Loki — the evil god that I’d helped set free against my will.

I should have known that my first official date with Logan Quinn was destined to end in disaster. If we’d gotten into a swordfight, or been ambushed by Reapers, I’d have been more prepared. But getting arrested mid-sip at the local coffee hangout? I didn’t see that one coming.  I’ve been accused of purposely helping the Reapers free Loki from his prison — and the person leading the charge against me is Linus Quinn, Logan’s dad. The worst part is that pretty much everyone at Mythos Academy thinks I’m guilty. If I’m going to get out of this mess alive, I’ll have to do it myself …

SPARTAN FROST by Jennifer Estep

#4.5 E-Novella

Genre: 

Type: 

Release Date: July 2013

 

I’m Logan Quinn, the deadliest Spartan warrior at Mythos Academy. At least I was—until the day I almost killed Gwen Frost.

Professor Metis and Nickamedes say that I’m fine, that Loki and the Reapers don’t have a hold on me anymore, but I can’t risk it. I can’t risk hurting Gwen again. So I’m leaving Mythos and going somewhere far, far away.

I know Gwen wonders what’s happening to me, whether I’m safe.  I can’t tell her, but this is my story …

Note: This e-novella is around 14,000 words and takes place after the events of Crimson Frost but before those of Midnight Frost. It is told from Logan Quinn’s point of view. Even though Gwen is on the cover, this is a Logan story — not a Gwen story. Also, this does contain some spoilers for Crimson Frost. The e-novella is available for $1.99 as an e-book.

Book #5

Genre: 

Type: 

Release Date: August 2013

 

Here we go again …

Just when it seems life at Mythos Academy can’t get any more dangerous, the Reapers of Chaos manage to prove me wrong. It was just a typical night at the Library of Antiquities — until a Reaper tried to poison me. The good news is I’m still alive and kicking. The bad news is the Reaper poisoned someone else instead.

As Nike’s Champion, everyone expects me to lead the charge against the Reapers, even though I’m still hurting over what happened with Spartan warrior Logan Quinn. I’ve got to get my hands on the antidote fast — otherwise, an innocent person will die. But the only known cure is hidden in some creepy ruins — and the Reapers are sure to be waiting for me there …

I’ve battled the Reapers of Chaos before–and survived. But this time I have a Bad, Bad Feeling it’s going to be a fight to the death … most likely mine.

Yeah, I’ve got my psychometry magic, my talking sword, Vic–and even the most dangerous Spartan on campus at my side, in Logan freaking Quinn, but I’m no match for Loki, the evil Norse god of chaos. I may be Nike’s Champion, but at heart, I’m still just Gwen Frost, that weird Gypsy girl everyone at school loves to gossip about.

Then someone I love is put in more danger than ever before, and something inside me snaps. This time, Loki and his Reapers are going down for good … or I am.

WonderlandInterviewsWhy YA/NA?

JE: My YA books are similar to my adult fantasy books in that they contain a little bit of everything – magic, action, danger, adventure, strong heroines, romance. But I like writing YA books because they let me tell more of a coming-of-age story, about a heroine who is still figuring out her magic, who she is, and what she wants her place in the world to be.

 

When did you fall in love with writing?

JE: My mom used to take me to the library every Saturday as a kid, so that’s how I fell in love with books and reading in the first place. So I think that wanting to write my own stories grew out of all that.

 

Do you have a favorite YA/NA series?

JE: One of my favorite books is Beauty by Robin McKinley, which is a lovely retelling of the Beauty and the Beast fairy tale.

 

What is your favorite Apocalypse trope?

JE: I think that weather-based apocalypse stories are interesting.

 

What is your favorite thing to do outside writing?

JE: I love to read, watch movies/TV shows, and hang out with my family and friends.

 

Name something you cannot stand.

JE: Rude people

 

Name something you cannot live without.

JE: Books, of course. 🙂

 

If you were a comic book character who would you be and why?

JE: Good question! I will say Black Widow, just because I have enjoyed her character so much in all the Marvel superhero movies.

 

iPad or Surface?

JE: Neither, although I do have a tablet for reading e-books.

 

Netflix, Amazon or Hulu?

JE: Amazon

 

Favorite TV Show?

JE: Arrow

 

Favorite Dessert?

JE: Strawberry cheesecake ice cream is one of my favorite desserts.

 

What is the first thing on your bucket list?

JE: I’d like to travel to Alaska, Hawaii, and several other places.

 

Please tell us about your latest or upcoming release.

JE: My latest YA release is Killer Frost, the sixth and final book in my Mythos Academy young adult urban fantasy series.

The books focus on Gwen Frost, a 17-year-old Gypsy girl who has the gift of psychometry, or the ability to know an object’s history just by touching it. After a serious freak-out with her magic, Gwen is shipped off to Mythos Academy, a school for the descendants of ancient warriors like Spartans, Valkyries, Amazons, and more.

In Killer Frost, Gwen and her friends have to figure out a way to finally defeat Loki and his Reapers of Chaos.

 

Will you be attending any conferences?

JE: I’ll be attending the Authors After Dark conference in August in Charlotte. Next year, I plan to attend the RT Booklovers Convention in Dallas.

 

Where can y0ur fans find you online?

JE: If folks want more info on my books, they can check out my website at www.jenniferestep.com or follow me on Facebook, Goodreads, and Twitter.

 

Happy reading, everyone!

DARK LEGACY
 
Mala LaCroix has spent her whole life trying to escape her destiny. As the last in a long line of "witch women," she rejects the notion of spirits and hoodoo and instead does her best to blend in. But when she finds a dead body floating in the bayou behind her house, Mala taps into powers she never knew she had. She's haunted by visions of the dead girl, demanding justice and vengeance.
 
DEADLY SECRETS
 
Landry Prince has always had a crush on Mala, but when Mala discovers his sister, murdered and marked in some sort of Satanic ritual, he wonders if all the rumors about the LaCroix family are true. Yet after Mala uses her connection to the spirit world to identify his sister's killer, he starts to form his own bond to her . . . a very physical one. As they move closer to each other and closer to the truth, Mala and Landry must risk everything—their families, their love, and even their lives.

This book was a definite page turner, it was a fast paced murder mystery and I couldn’t wait to read what was going to happen next.  Mala LaCroix has spent her life trying to escape from her mom’s shadow.  Her mom tells her she is the last in a long line of hoodo women.  Mala has a hard time believing it. Mala tries her best to blend in but all that changes when she finds a dead body floating in the bayou behind her house.  She’s haunted by visions of the dead girl, demanding justice and vengeance. Mala is forced to tap into powers she never knew she had.

 

Then their is Landry Prince who has always had a crush on Mala.  She has no idea he does until they try to solve his sister’s murder. When Mala discovers his sister, murdered and marked in some sort of Satanic ritual he wonders if she could have done it.  All the rumors about the LaCroix family put her in danger but as they try to find out why Laney is haunting them he starts to form his own bond to her a very physical one. As they move closer to each other and closer to the truth, Mala and Landry must risk everything-their families, their love, and even their lives.  I loved Mala so much. She had so much more strength than she thought she did. And I found myself cheering her on when she was trying to get a point across.  At first I had a love/hate relationship with Landry until his true colors began to shine. I think he is a wonderful person even though he is a little rough around the edges. This book left on a cliff hanger and I would read the sequel.

In this inventive romantic thriller, Del has the power to navigate between alternate realities—and the power to save multiple worlds.Delancey knows for sure that there is more than one universe. Many more. Because every time someone makes a choice, a new, parallel world is spun off the existing one. Eating breakfast or skipping it, turning left instead of right, sneaking out instead of staying in bed—all of these choices create alternate universes in which echo selves take the roads not traveled. Del knows all of this because she’s a Walker, someone who can navigate between the worlds, and whose job is to keep the dimensions in harmony. But Del’s decisions have consequences too. Even though she’s forbidden from Walking after a training session goes horribly wrong, she secretly starts to investigate other dissonant worlds. She’s particularly intrigued by the echo versions of Simon Lane, a guy who won’t give her the time of day in the main world, but whose alternate selves are uniquely interested. But falling for Simon draws Del closer to a truth that the Council of Walkers is trying to hide—a secret that threatens the fate of the entire multiverse.
Synopsis: For Delancey Sullivan, alternate universes aren’t just a theory: they’re a way of life. Every time someone makes a choice—to eat breakfast or skip it, to sneak out or stay in bed—parallel realities are created, and echo versions of ourselves take the roads not traveled in the Key World. As a Walker, Del navigates between the Echoes, keeping the dimensions in harmony. But when her own choices go horribly wrong, she must decide between her heart and her duty—and live with the consequences.

I don’t even know where to start. This book was amazing! Del is a walker and a walkers job is to keep the key world safe. Del makes a mistake in one of the echoes and she is put on suspension. When Del realizes with the help of her friend Elliot that the mistake she made shouldn’t have happened she’s on a mission to find out what happened and how to fix it. The characters in this book are great. Del is a headstrong main character and will do things that are reckless if she thinks its going to benefit the people she loves. And Del’s love interest Simon was an interesting character. We don’t really get to know Simon at first but only his echoes Del sees in different dimensions. The romance between the two was sweet, I think they were a great couple. I really liked the secondary characters in this book and how they were treated. Elliot, Del’s friend, was such a sweet guy who was always their for his best friend. Addison, Del’s sister, came across as a perfectionist type snob at first, but we see deeper into her character as the book progresses and she proved to be a Walker who would do anything to ensure the safety of the Key World. I loved the relationship between Del and her grandpa Monty, who has a secret of his own. This book was a page turner, I was hooked. I’m ready for the sequel!

The moment seventeen-year-old Samantha Thompson crawls out of her grave, her second chance at life begins. She died of cancer with her long-time boyfriend, Ethan, by her side -- a completely unfair shot at life. But Ethan found a way to bring her back, like he promised he would. Only Sam came back wrong. She's now a monster that drains others' lives to survive. And after she kills, she's tortured by visions -- glimpses into her victims would have- been futures had she not killed them. Barely able to live with herself and trying to make things right, Sam ends up a pawn in a vicious game of payback within the local coven of witches. But when the game reveals what Ethan had to do to save Sam, she must make a choice that will change all their lives forever.

The Monster Within is about a girl named Samantha who comes back to life four days after she died from cancer. Her boyfriend is the one who brought her back, but whenever she asks how he did it he refuses to tell her. Samantha and Ethan move to a small town because they can’t go back home. The first night at there new place is when Sam realizes something isn’t right with her. To stay alive Sam has to suck the life out of other people. The book started out good, I was interested in finding out what Sam would do now that she has to drain the life out of people to stay alive as well as how Ethan brought her back. I did not like Sam at all. She made decisions that weren’t smart, and I can’t even keep track of how many lies she told. And it just bothered me that Ethan just wouldn’t tell her what he did to bring her back until the very end. I did like the fact that when she did kill someone she would get to see their futures and what their lives would have been like if she didn’t kill them. I found myself putting this book down a few times. I’m not sure if I would read the sequel.

If high school is all about social status, Indigo Blackwood has it made. Sure, her quirky mom owns an occult shop, and a nerd just won’t stop trying to be her friend, but Indie is a popular cheerleader with a football-star boyfriend and a social circle powerful enough to ruin everyone at school. Who wouldn’t want to be her?
 
Then a guy dies right before her eyes. And the dusty old family Bible her mom is freakishly possessive of is stolen. But it’s when a frustratingly sexy stranger named Bishop enters Indie’s world that she learns her destiny involves a lot more than pom-poms and parties. If she doesn’t get the Bible back, every witch on the planet will die. And that’s seriously bad news for Indie, because according to Bishop, she’s a witch too.
Suddenly forced into a centuries-old war between witches and sorcerers, Indie’s about to uncover the many dark truths about her life—and a future unlike any she ever imagined on top of the cheer pyramid.

 

Hexed is about a girl named Indie who finds out she’s a witch, and has to learn fast. Indie has to get the Bible back before every witch on the planet dies. When I got this book I was so excited, because I haven’t read a book that involves witches since I read L.J Smith’s The Night World. I kind of feel let down because I thought more would happen in Hexed, but I guess I’ll just have to wait for the sequel to be released. I wasn’t a fan of most of the characters except for Paige, Indie’s neighbor and Jezebel, Bishop’s ex-girlfriend. I felt like Paige was the only one using common sense, and Jezebel just seemed like a strong female character in general. The reason I didn’t like Indie was because she was shallow, self-centered, and I just couldn’t relate to her. I felt like she should have done more in the book but she didn’t. And Indie’s “Love Interest” just treated everything like a game and it got annoying. Overall, I found this book to be a let down. I would read the sequel just to finish this series and because this book left off on a cliff hanger.

Gwen and all her friends will stop at nothing to help Gwen clear her name. Even though Logan’s dad is the one leading the charge against Gwen, Logan still stays by Gwen. Of course I have nothing but good things to say about this book. But the ending is pretty sad in my opinion and when you find out who one of Loki’s reaper helpers is you’ll be shocked because I was. The sequel to this book is Midnight Frost. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Urban Fantasies, and Romance.
