Tour & Giveaway: Operation Tenley (The Fair City Files #1) by Jennifer Gooch Hummer



Follow the Whole Tour HERE


Operation Tenley (The Fair City Files #1) by Jennifer Gooch Hummer.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal.
Publication: September 13th 2016 by Month9Books.
Meet Tenley Tylwyth, an Elemental Teen born with the power to produce weather. Cool? Not really. Elementals who can create weather make Mother Nature angry. It’s time she got rid of them. Only one thing is standing in her way—Fair Ones. These ancestors of fairies keep kids like Tenley safe, but when rookie Fair One, Pennie, fails to do so, she’s forced to travel to Earth—a place where no Fair One wants to go. Now, Pennie has forty-eight hours to convince Tenley to give up her power. It won’t be so easy. Tenley’s got a way with wind. And after falling deep into Mother Nature’s gardens, where trees grow upside down and insects attack on command, a little wind might be just what Tenley needs to survive. Even if it kills her.


Tenley blew a quick breath. A gust of air swirled around Pennie’s hands. “Tenley! Stop!” Pennie pulled her hands back.
“It’s just wind. What are you so afraid of?” Tenley put the screen in place again.
“It’s not just wind. This is exactly why I’m here. You need to stop doing this.”
Tenley grabbed her phone. “Okay, look. I’m sorry that for some reason I can make the wind blow. It’s weird, I know. But it’s also awesome. I’m not hurting anybody. I’m just drying my nails and stuff. So I don’t know why you have to go and get all freaked out about it.”
“Because.” Pennie lowered her voice. “Every time you create wind, you’re putting yourself in danger.” She tapped on her temple, careful not to smudge her nails. The hologram form appeared in front of her. “You need to sign this.”

Blitz & Giveaway: The Surrendered by Case Maynard



The Surrendered by Case Maynard.
Audience/Genre: Dystopian, Young Adult.
Publication: September 20th 2016 by Blaze Publishing.
After a financial collapse devastates the United States, the new government imposes a tax on the nation’s most valuable resource—the children.

Surrendered at age ten—after her parents could no longer afford her exorbitant fees—Vee Delancourt has spent six hard years at the Mills, alongside her twin, Oliver. With just a year to freedom, they do what they can to stay off the Master’s radar. But when Vee discovers unspeakable things happening to the younger girls in service, she has no choice but to take a stand—a decision that lands her on the run and outside the fence for the first time since the System robbed her of her liberty.

Vee knows the Master will stop at nothing to prove he holds ultimate authority over the Surrendered. But when he makes a threat that goes beyond what even she considers possible, she accepts the aid of an unlikely group of allies. Problem is, with opposing factions gunning for the one thing that might save them all, Vee must find a way to turn oppression and desperation into hope and determination—or risk failing all the children and the brother she left behind.


What if the Master takes out his anger over our escape on Cason?
I freeze. The Master witnessed firsthand how much I care for Cason, and it’s not outside the realm of possibility that he may use him to punish me for running. Just like they used Oliver.
I look over to see Ramsey sitting quietly with her back against the stone wall. She’s retreated within herself again, her eyes glazed and unfocused on the dirt floor at her feet. The doubts bombard me. If I attempt to save myself, I put Cason at risk. If I don’t, I put Ramsey at risk. It’s almost too much to expect me to choose between two lives. One thing’s for sure. Someone has to die.
Through our rebellions and shows of defiance, we’ve weakened the power that the System holds over the community. Beginning with Ramsey’s killing of the Overseer, my escape and then Oliver’s, and with word spreading quickly of John William’s rerouting of the Drudgers back to their families and to underground locations, we have no doubt made people question: If just a few teenagers and a Farm owner could cause such trouble, what might happen if a more organized effort occurred?
In order to set things back to the way they were, to take back their position at the top of the food chain, the System needs a body to show what will happen to those who revolt. I know they won’t stop until they have one to give.
My whole life I’ve had to fight for myself. I’ve fought hunger and hatred and terror and despair. I’ve fought for any freedoms I could get and for any joy I could garner. I’ve fought for my own sanity. But most of all, I’ve fought to hold onto hope. Because somewhere deep inside me I know that without hope, there’s nothing. Ramsey’s right. I use my anger as a mechanism to keep me fighting. It’s what has always made me strong. But now . . . I literally feel the fight leave me. I know that I’ve reached the end of my battle.
If they want a body, they’ll get one. But it won’t be Ramsey’s. And it sure as hell won’t be Cason’s.
“Ramsey, snap out of it.”

Blast & GIveaway: Recreated (Reawakened #2) by Colleen Houck



Recreated (Reawakened #2) by Colleen Houck.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Fantasy.
Publication: August 2nd 2016 by Delacorte Press.
From Colleen Houck, New York Times bestselling author of The Tiger’s Curse, comes Recreated, the second book in the epic Egyptian-inspired Reawakened series, in which a seventeen-year-old must literally go to hell to save the love of her life.

Lily Young thought traveling across the globe with a reawakened sun prince was a grand adventure. Now she’s about to embark on the journey of a lifetime.

When Amon and Lily part tragically, he transports himself to the Netherworld—what mortals call hell. Tormented by the loss of his one true love, he’d rather suffer in agony during Lily’s mortal years than fulfill his duty to protect humanity.

Heartbroken, Lily seeks refuge on her grandmother’s farm. Yet she can feel Amon’s pain, and she has been having dreams—dreams of Amon continually suffering.

For before he departed, Amon gave Lily something very special, an item that connects them even though they are worlds apart. Now Lily must use this object to free him, and to free their realms from darkness and utter chaos. She will do whatever it takes.
