Welcome to my blog spot- grab a cup of coffee and a good book ;-)
Check out my fun interview with fellow indie author, Laura Mae. We discuss my books, movies and what it's like being authors!
What a great read!
This is a well-written dystopian YA novel that draws the reader in from the first page.
It follows a young girl, Ravyn, in her quest to seek refuge from an evil man, General Wolfe, and his army of soldiers who are aimed at bringing her back to the compound she’s escaped from.
There’s action from the very beginning and it spins into a heart-pounding ride as Ravyn is hunted in the Old Sequoia Valley by more than just these brain-washed barbarians. She crosses paths with a Warrior, Commander Thorne, from a tribe called Peton, and he’s quickly taken with the fascinating Ravyn- for there’s more to this girl than meets the eye.
Thorne, in turn, has an interesting past of his own and the two of them soon join forces against the menacing hunters. From there, it’s a race against evil as they fight to escape the clutches of both the minions of General Wolfe AND the vicious creatures of the valley.
This book had it all- intrigue, suspense, action and romance. It was captivating, exciting and had me up long past my bedtime to see what was going to happen next.
I’m eager to see what happens in the next book of the series!

As a fan of science-fiction and the love of being immersed in new worlds, I can truly say that reading this debut novel of Danielle’s was truly a pleasure.
The book centers around Aliya Rathburn who is literally thrown into a nightmare as she awakens from a horrifying car accident to find that she is on an entirely different planet- Callais.
Not only is she faced with this dilemma, (insert panic and fear) she is informed that she was at the very door of death and was “modified” in order to save her life (there’s a whole Frankenstein meets Nebula feel going on here).
As if that weren’t enough to handle… yeah, she’s not allowed to go back home to Earth (aka Terra). Her only option is to join the Protective Forces and become a soldier, which she’s not sure she even wants nor knows how to be, and they all think she’s a “freak”.
After a few months of hiding her unique abilities out of fear and shame (after all she’s not sure what they plan to do with her in the first place), she is chosen by handsome and reserved Captain Caspian (don’t you just love how his name rolls off your tongue?) for the Nova squad.
She’s hesitant and unsure at first why Caspian has chosen her for the squad but soon comes to see that there’s more to Caspian than meets the eye… as well as some chemistry between the two of them ;-) She starts to feel a sense of belonging and acceptance as Nova becomes her family (especially seeing as she’s never allowed to see her own ever again.)
A scouting mission goes horrible awry on Planet Charra and she must make the quick decision to save her crew, and her captain, but also gives away her “bad-a$$” moves in the process. She comes face to face with a new and frightening enemy, the Kretch, who supposedly were killed out a century ago. This newfound knowledge takes them to yet another new and exotic planet, Vanthurium, where they must protect the Lord and Lady there. The battle scenes are so vivid and thrilling as Aliya must once again help protect her crew and save the day.
This book was very well written. Each character and place was very descriptive. It was high-paced, exciting, and heart-pounding as Danielle took the reader on a journey to new worlds with a dynamic and lovable crew that would make the Guardians of the Galaxy proud. I’m eager to see what adventures lay in store for Nova next :-)
