Genre: YA Paranormal/Fantasy
Release Date: February 8, 2012
I’m dying, I thought. This was unexpected and not at all how I envisioned my death. I was supposed to die gardening in a flowerbed as a hundred-year-old woman, not as a seventeen-year-old trapped in a lake beneath inches of ice.
Llona Reese is used to living on the run. After a Vyken killed her parents, she knew they would eventually come for her too. She can’t take any chances. But when she starts to make friends for the first time in her life, she gets careless and lets her guard down. Big mistake. As an Aura, Llona can manipulate light and harness its energy. But if she wants to survive, Llona will have to defy the Auran Council and learn to use her power as a weapon against the Vyken whose sole desire is to take her light. Now she’s caught in something bigger than she can understand, with a power she can’t wield, and no one she can trust, except, just maybe, a mysterious stranger.
eBooks vs. Regular Books
I am still in the book camp, although I'm quickly warming to the eBookers who exist all around me. They look so cool and sophisticated with their eReaders and touching the screen like they're Tom Cruise in Minority Report. Who knows what they're reading on that gadget? It is a mystery, thereby making them a mystery.
I'm not as cool. I carry regular books around, their covers a glaring button on my chest, exposing pieces of myself to the world. My likes, my desires, and even my fears. You can tell a lot about a person by the books they read.
But eBook readers...who are they? Their anonymity draws me in. There are some books I'd like to keep hidden (tee hee hee). But I'm frightened by the whole mechanics of it all. What if I "plug" in and I'm sucked into some other dimension where my mind becomes trapped by three-horned aliens, and they send one of their protozoan soldiers to take over my body?
So I'd like to know, for those of you who are eBook readers, what made you convert? And for those who aren't, why are you still old school?
