Book Blast & Giveaway: The Convergence (Converters #1) by Tenille Berezay

The Convergence (Converters #1) by Tenille Berezay.
Audience/Genre: Young Adult, Paranormal.
Publication: March 12th 2016 by Line by Line.
Seventeen-year-old DESIREE MORGAN buries her extraordinary ability to access her full physical and mental potential in an ordinary life. Planning to find liberation from her secret by traveling, she gives horseback riding lessons to earn money. When BLAKE THOMAS, the new guy—with passable looks and ample money—becomes her student, her secret is at risk.

While struggling against Blake’s easy charm and efficient scrutiny, Desiree learns she was adopted. She starts a search for her real father in the hope he can explain her abilities. During this time Blake becomes a surprising source of support, but his interest in Desiree isn’t merely romantic. A flash flood forces Blake to admit his secret to Desiree and explain hers: They are both converters—able to transform their emotions into energy.

Blake is also a member of a formidable, covert society of converters. As his attachment to Desiree outgrows his loyalty to the group, Blake realizes to protect her freedom and familial relationships he must disappear. Heartbroken, Desiree launches herself into the search for her father. Her investigation leads her to the covert society. And Blake. There she’s given a choice; be analyzed in the hopes of joining the group and finding her father or be stripped of her memories of Blake and conversion. Desperate, Desiree submits to the brutal psychological and physical testing.

While undergoing the testing, Desiree makes enemies. Powerful enemies. Inexplicably determined to see Desiree fail, they attempt to tear apart her physical strength, mental courage, and relationship with Blake. Desiree and Blake consider running, but with the safety of her family threatened, Desiree stays. Directly before Desiree’s judgment, she learns a leader in the group is performing forbidden experimentations on converters, stripping away not only memories but sanity. To catch the perpetrators Desiree agrees to become bait by failing. During her trial, Desiree learns the painful truth; her father died during a failed experiment. In an emotional tirade, Desiree reveals her hatred for the group and gains denial. Avoiding those bent on protecting her, Desiree is taken and forced to undergo an excruciatingly painful procedure—the same one that killed her father.

Before Desiree loses her mind, Blake intervenes and escapes with her. Once safe, Desiree convinces Blake to return and salvage the proof of the secret atrocities. While Blake is gone, the safehouse is discovered and Desiree barely escapes by setting off a chain of explosives. Hidden and reeling from the blast, Desiree watches as Blake and the other leaders arrive and apprehend the rogues. With bittersweet insight, Desiree realizes that only with Blake can the society realize its full potential. Sacrificing her happiness, she vanishes to spend the rest of her life on the run with the Convergence’s secrets.

Praise for Book

“If you like the action of Divergent, romance of Twilight, and super human powers like X-men, you’ll absolutely love this book.”

“I have read a lot of young adult science fiction/romance and this is right up there with the best of them.”

“I was captured from the beginning by Desiree’s story, but even more so by the handsome and charming Blake.”

Following the rescue came the terror. Terror for what I’d done, what I could do. The realization that my abilities extended beyond what I had ever, ever anticipated. I’d been pushing myself, not attempting the impossible. Emotions from that night teem inside of me; so much rage from my date, fright for the injured people, and ultimately dismay for myself. For what I am.
After fruitless searching, I thought I accepted it. Gave up on ever understanding. But I didn’t.
I stare down at my empty yet terrifyingly powerful hands. Clenching them into fists, I spin and sprint away. Again I internalize the useless emotions, the lingering doubt.
Hope. This hope I’ve been given is a dangerous thing.
