The Alien’s Daughter | JC Morrows, Macy Morrows

 

  


Today I am reviewing The Alien’s Daughter, the 1st chapter book in the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series, by JC Morrows and Macy Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

As if being a teenager isn’t hard enough. . .

Can you imagine how it feels to wake up one day and find out that you are not who you thought you were?

If you’re anything like me, you know it’s hard enough trying to fit in—in high school—without having to deal with the knowledge that your dad is an alien part of the time. I don’t even get how you can be an alien part of the time. . .

Not to mention all of the crazy new alien gifts you really wish you could return.

Oh well, at least I have an explanation for the blue hair.

So, not only do I get to deal with school bullies this fall, who I’m apparently not allowed to use my new abilities on, I have to keep anyone from finding out my secret. . . and keep my grades up.

Could life get any crazier!

Book one of the Tales of a Teenage Alien Human Hybrid series.

 

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Zoe is a really cool character… with blue hair — and a few new strange powers that have just shown up!

And she has two dads!

Well… not really. But her dad has two very different personalities, so much so that she calls one of them Nice Dad and the other one Not-so-nice Dad.  Personally, I wish Not-so-nice Dad would take a hike!  Unfortunately, if he does, Nice Dad won’t stay around, either. Even if she wants him to…

How does Zoe learn to control her powers? What happens with her dad? Read the story and find out, like I did… and once you do, you’ll want to know more (like I do) and you’ll be anticipating the return of Zoe (and her dads) in The Hybrid Challenge.

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!

Escape After E.L.E. | JC Morrows

  


Today I am featuring Escape After E.L.E., the second novel in The Frozen World series, by JC Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

A FROZEN WORLD. . . A LOST LOVE. . . A DIMINISHING HOPE. . . 

FORTY-FIVE YEARS  AFTER A ROGUE MOON SMASHED INTO OUR WORLD. . .

THIRTY YEARS AFTER HUMANITY EMERGED FROM THE CAVES WHERE THEY TOOK REFUGE. . .

A GROUP OF TEENS DISCOVER THERE IS MORE TO THE STORY. . .

Everything Jude has been taught, tells him that Eve was lost to him when he watched the gates close between them. But he refuses to give up on her–because, if there is anything he knows about the girl he reluctantly fell in love with, it is that she would find a way to survive.

But would she be able to survive long enough. . .

When their search efforts are blocked–even after the relentless storms subside–they begin to realize there is something much more sinister happening in the caves than any of them imagined.

When more friends start disappearing, will they be able to figure out why–in time–or will everyone end up suffering the same fate as Eve. . .

Lost forever to those left behind in the caves. . .

 

Life After E.L.E. by JC Morrows . . . Will Jude find her?  Don’t miss this action-packed story!  – Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Oh my goodness!  After Eve didn’t make it back in time. . . and the big gates shut. . . I knew Jude would find a way to go after her. . . and either save her — or find her body and bring it back to her family. The characters were awesome, the action was superb, the emotions ran high, and the hero was determined to never give up until he found his true love!

If you read — and enjoyed — the first book as much as I did, you, too, were waiting on pins and needles for the sequel. And the moment I had it in my hands, I didn’t put it down until the very end.

If you enjoyed reading (or watching) The Hunger Games or Divergent, you will LOVE reading THE FROZEN WORLD series!

Happy Reading!

 

Blessings!

Life After E.L.E. | JC Morrows

  



Today I am reviewing Life After E.L.E., the first novel in The Frozen World series, by the amazing JC Morrows.

Here is a brief synopsis:

Extinction Level Event (E.L.E.): An event where all species on the planet can become extinct.

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

Rule#1: Be inside the gates before sunset.

Eve was born inside the caves. She was taught that rule – and many others – before she could walk. It should be the easiest thing in the world for her to remember.

But life is not always simple.

Life does not always go as planned . . .

When a rogue moon was discovered on a collision course with the Earth, we thought we had a solid plan.

We were wrong. And we were lied to.

Now Eve is in a race against time, discovery and danger around every corner – to find a truth that has been hidden for more than ten years.

A truth her father died to protect her from.

 

Life After E.L.E. by JC Morrows . . . Will Eve survive?  Don’t miss this action-packed story!  – Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:
Life After E.L.E. is an amazing story! After watching Divergent, Hunger Games, and 2012… I can’t wait to see this series on the big screen!

A rogue moon hits the earth, causing an ice age . . . Morrows does a superb job of creating life in the caves for those who survived. It is especially interesting to read about the many rules they live by. I haven’t decided which would be worse – being hunted by a saber-toothed tiger or locked out of the city by the evil chancellor! I think I’d take my chances with the tiger.

I was delighted to see the progression of Eve’s first love. While it didn’t go nearly as far as the scenes in the above-mentioned series, there are a couple of kisses, but that’s what happens in real life. Morrows gives the characters a true-to-life relationship, howbeit with an unexpected ending.

I cannot stress enough how frustrating it will be to wait a whole year for book two! I can’t wait to read the next part of this exciting saga.

Happy Reading!

COMING SOON… JC Morrows

I have some exciting news to share!

 

First, I have the distinct pleasure of sharing some exciting information about the first book in JC’s upcoming urban fantasy series…

Book 1 of the Andarii Chronicles

TAKEN

   

From the back cover:

 

This is not a story you want to miss; this book, or any book of this series. It’s a story that spans galaxies, involves multiple peoples, and it will reveal a destiny that no one saw coming.

No prophecy brought her here. No ancient oracle foretold her coming. No ancient tablet spoke about the role she is destined to fill. But life and fate brought her where she needs to be to save more than one planet.

 

While we wait for more information, please add this book to your GOODREADS shelf!

 

 

 

And JC has graciously agreed to share with you some hints about other projects, upcoming series, and works-in-process. . .

 

Also slated to release in 2018 is a story about an alien and the one she is connected to. You may have seen updates during November. JC did not win NaNoWriMo this year, but she did get a good start on LINKED – book 1 of the NEW Across the Void series.

She is also busily working on a time travel story, a dragon series and she is co-authoring a story with her daughter Macy.

Exciting things coming.

 

Thank You!
Blessings!

A Broken Kingdom | JC Morrows

  



The sequel we’ve all been waiting for…
Today I am reviewing A Broken Kingdom, the 5th–and FINAL–novel in the Order of the MoonStone series, by the awesome JC Morrows.

 

Here is a brief synopsis:

A Reluctant Assassin…
Made A Treacherous Decision…
Which led to A Desperate Escape.

Now A Tragic Consequence…
Leads to A Broken Kingdom.

When she fell in love with her target, Kayden realized she could not fulfill her mission.

And, no one could have predicted that her decision to share the truth with Prince Dvarius would lead them to the alter — much less to tragedy…

 

A Broken Kingdom by JC Morrows… will Kayden rule as Queen?
Don’t miss this action-packed sequel!
 – Tweet this!

 

MY THOUGHTS:

Wow! I was NOT expecting so much! So many twists and turns! So many surprises!!!

It really is the perfect sequel to the series! If you’ve been reading the Order of the MoonStone stories, I’m sure you’ll agree with me.

JC Morrows is an amazing author/storyteller. I don’t normally like cliff-hangers. Most likely, not many readers do. But once I had read A Reluctant Assassin, I was hooked. I had to keep reading each sequel–and each sequel ended abruptly, making me squirm until the next story was available.

The last story ended on another cliff-hanger! A heart-wrenching ending. This story begins with Kayden… lost, alone, struggling to live up to Dvarius’ expectations. But the love of her life is gone.

And that’s all I’ll say.

Honestly, I can’t say much about this story without giving away something. It seemed like each chapter brought new surprises! Unexpected twists and turns around each corner!

So while I can say the characters are appealing, colorful, and inventive… with grab-your-attention-and-won’t-let-go action from the beginning to the end, I can’t say much else, except…

READ. THE. BOOKS.

All of them.

Do yourself a favor and get the whole series–five novels and five short stories–and read them in order. It doesn’t matter if you choose paperback or digital copies, just read them.

And hey, while you’re at it, if you enjoy them, please take a minute and write a review on Amazon. A sentence or two will do–even a few thoughtful words is enough. It’s a wonderful way to let the author know you like her books–and it’s a great way to let other readers know that these are books worth reading.

Until next time…

Happy Reading!

 

God Bless You!
