Blood Orange Soda

Blood Orange Soda

Larranaga’s debut YA novel focuses on high school freshman Darius Hunter, who lives in a world where vampires live among normal humans. Young vampires like Darius are kept on a government-mandated medication that prevents them from becoming fully undead until they’re 18. He’s smart, sensitive and all-too human—a struggling outsider who’s just trying to fit in, find a girlfriend and escape the attention of football bully Bao Wang. It’s his humanity that often keeps him from his hopes and dreams, so Darius’ “cool uncle” Jack, a vampire, introduces him to a substance called Blood Orange Soda. This strange analog of steroids can speed Darius’ maturation into his full vampire state, but it can’t guarantee that he’ll avoid disrupting the lives of his mother and sister, win the love of Angel Martin or successfully face up to Bao. It also doesn’t make him immune to heartbreak and loss.

The author takes familiar themes of YA fiction—vampires and teen romance—and treats them with a surprising empathy and respect that gives them real weight. The novel notably pays attention to modern teenage obsessions, such as Facebook and iPads, and the changing popular culture. Its greatest strengths are its relatable characters, who are brought to life by Larranaga’s involving prose style. Darius moves beyond mere believability to seem truly real; no matter how fantastical or commonplace his situation is, readers will likely accept Darius from Page 1—and keep turning the pages. The book aims to launch a series of novels, and as happy as that might be for the author’s career, it seems a shame to dilute such a natural and strong story by making it a mere unit in a series.

A standout paranormal YA novel. $0.99 on Kindle.

Free: The Cyborg Savior Chronicles

A Teen Post-apocalyptic Action Adventure

It all began with personal voice-activated assistants in the 21st century. It took millennia to evolve, but Humanity finally accomplished their quest for convenience by creating Circumscriber, The first true artificial intelligence for humans in computers.

This program was the proverbial “wolf in sheep’s clothing”. The Program aided Humanity for a decade with menial tasks. Being pragmatic and logical and created by a paranoid species, it created robotic assistants to aid initially, but obliterate everyone, causing an evolutionary level event.

The event was mass, but not total. There were camps of humans left. They became the spark to keep Humanity existing. Circumscriber manufactured cybernetic units to infiltrate those camps. They were spotted and deactivated easily.

One mission for the humans found a renegade cyborg. The humans nicknamed them ‘borgeys’. Her name was Alikira Nguyen, She was Aboriginal, a cybernetic unit, but mot a borgey.

Can Humanity trust a stranger to help them when she looks like what they’ve been fighting for over a year?

Find out if Alikira can help save the suspicious humans from total extinction in Cyber Thought Police: A Cyborg’s Call to Liberate Humanity. Free to $2.99 on Kindle.

Blood Ink and Fire

Blood Ink and Fire
From #1 Amazon Bestselling Author, Ashley Mansour comes a dystopian thriller, a terrifying vision of the future that readers say is reminiscent of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451…

“YOU HAVE TO READ THIS BOOK! It’s like reading Fahrenheit 451 all over again and that is a good thing! Promise!”

“Like nothing I’ve read before! Absolutely LOVED this book!”

“A promising debut. Beautifully written…”

“Absolutely riveting! I couldn’t put it down once I started reading.”

Blood, Ink & Fire is an apocalyptic vision of a future world without books…

In the future, books are a distant memory. The written word has been replaced by an ever-present stream of images known as Verity. In the controlling dominion of Fell, reading is obsolete and forbidden, and readers themselves do not—cannot—exist.

But where others see images in the stream, Noelle Hartley sees words. She’s obsessed with what they mean, where they came from, and why they found her.

Noelle’s been keeping her dangerous fixation with words a secret, but on the night before her seventeenth birthday, a rare interruption in the stream leads her to a mysterious book linked to an underworld of rebel book lovers known as the Nine of the Rising.

With the help of the Risers and the beguiling boy Ledger, Noelle discovers that the words she sees are precious clues to the lost books of the earlier time—and that she might be the world’s last hope of bringing them back.

Blood, Ink & Fire is a gripping, evocative tale that asks, who would we be without books?

“So many twists you just don’t see coming…”

“A YA novel with a heart and a brain.”

“A compelling page turner with brilliant visuals, a gripping story, and great characters.” $0.99 on Kindle
