FORSAKEN by Kristen Day: A Daughters of the Sea Novel

Good morning, love doves! Happy Monday to you!

I'm very happy to present to you today a book that I think will be enjoyed by many of my readers!

Just take a look at the blurb!
Title: Forsaken A Daughters Of The Sea Novel
Author: Kristen Day
Publisher: Self Published
Pages: 268

Official Blurb:
Once you’ve been touched by darkness, it never leaves you…

Abandoned by her parents as an infant; seventeen year old Hannah spent her childhood wading through countless foster families until being adopted by the Whitmans three years ago. Unfortunately, Atlanta’s high society wasn’t quite ready for Hannah…or the strange events that plague her.

Chilling visions of murder, unexplained hallucinations, and a dark, mysterious guy who haunts her nightmares all culminate to set in motion a journey of self-discovery that will challenge everything she’s ever believed; not to mention her sanity.

Sent to live at The House of Lorelei on Bald Head Island, NC for ‘kids like her’, Hannah quickly realizes things are not what they seem. Her fellow ‘disturbed’ teens are actually the descendents of mythical Sea Gods and Goddesses. And so is she.

But when Finn, the ghost from her dreams, appears in the flesh; her nightmares become reality and her dark visions begin coming true. Inexplicably drawn to him, she can’t deny the dangerous hold he has on her heart. The deadly secrets he harbors will ultimately test her courage and push the boundaries of her love.

She must decide if she is ready to embrace the ancient legend she is prophesized to be a part of. The fate of all the descendents will forever depend upon it.

* About Kristen Day *

Kristen Day is a southern belle at heart with a crazy streak that desperately tries to escape at every opportunity.  She loves all things nostalgic, rustic, and quirky.  She’s been told she sees the world through rose-colored glasses, but she prefers to think of them as kaleidoscope glasses - swirling and morphing reality into something she can digest (who hasn't pretended those pasty lima beans were really kiwi strawberry jelly beans?). 
She is the author of the DAUGHTERS OF THE SEA trilogy, which includes FORSAKEN, AWAKEN (Oct 2012), and CHOSEN (Winter 2012).  She loves all books, but really enjoys writing young adult, paranormal romances.  She’s loved to write for as long as she can remember.  Her first published work was her poem RED in second grade (you guessed it - it was a poem about the color red - life altering, right?) that won her 5 gold stars and a spot in her elementary school's poetry book. That's when her addiction to the written word officially began.  She was the only kid in fifth grade that actually enjoyed diagramming sentences. Go ahead and laugh - its okay.
When she’s not writing she’s making jewelry, painting, feeding her addiction to sweet tea, watching the Discovery Channel, or going on random adventures in the mountains of North Carolina with her amazing husband. She was born in Boone, NC and graduated from Appalachian State University with a degree in Marketing in 2001.

Still No Internet. Disliking Internet Companies.

Still no Internet, guys.

I'm about to go bonkers. I've been using my phone internet to hop on every now and then for e-mails, but I only have a 2g data plan. Seems like a lot until you start using your phone to do online class assignments and download necessary internet-class videos.  Aaaaaaaaaargh!

Regardless of internet connection at my home I've decided to make it a point to start blogging again despite any issues this Sunday. I will travel across town to Starbucks, I'll raid my parents house for internet usage. Whatever needs to be done. I've been itching to get back to it and I've read a lot of really great books that I can't wait to introduce to you guys!

We'll get it worked out. Hopefully you'll be seeing me post before Sunday, but if not then you can expect me to start then at least.

I hope everyone is taking good good care and reading lots and tons.

Until Next Blog (hopefully soonish rather than laterish)

Read On!
