Blue Diamond

"Blue Diamond" by Dawn Umrie

| Website | Facebook | GoodReads | Pinterest | Merissa He is captivating.  A walking contradiction with dark ink hidden beneath an expensive three piece suit. A man who visits my dreams, a frustrating reminder that he is unattainable. He has a girlfriend. He walked into my life for a reason, a forbidden indulgence, maybe.  The universe is surely not that cruel. Seth She is breathtaking. A woman who intrigues my mind and body. Thoughts of her breathe life into my days, and exhale fantasies at night. She makes me want things I've never had, but always desired. She's more than just a blip on my radar. I don’t hold back. If I want something, it’s mine.

THE MOONBEAM RIDER

"THE MOONBEAM RIDER" by Carlton Holder

| Website | Occupation began when the first mothership appeared in the sky. Now they are taking over, one continent at a time. Collaborators, human traitors, are plentiful. Welcome to the resistance.  Noa Ash, a lonely teenage girl making entries into her personal journal, takes us on an astounding adventure. After she is orphaned during an alien attack, Noa is sent to live with a stern grandmother she has never known on Shadow - a once sunny beach that was warped into a hellish place of fog and darkness by a meteorite shower. There Noa finds an old surfboard and begins riding the beach’s cruel waves. As she learns to surf, Noa goes through a transformation of body and soul that turns her from a helpless nobody into a true heroine.  But fate has an even stranger destiny in mind for Noa when she discovers an underwater cavern where an archaic robot lay rusting. Only the robot is not a robot. It is a vessel. To resurrect it - the only weapon on Earth Noa believes can stop the alien occupation - she will have to transfer her life force - her soul - into the battered metal hull to pilot it. Aiding Noa in her mission is a strange boy from another time. A boy who Noa finds herself inexplicably drawn to.  "THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK" meets "WAR OF THE WORLDS."
