Review from Amazon: It’s a zombie story without a zombie in sight.  It’s set three hundred  years in the future or maybe it’s right now.  Damned if I know.  What I  do know is this is one hell of a cool ride.  It starts pretty quickly  and never loses momentum.  The two main characters are easy to root for  and the main villain is very easy to hate.  There are no shades of gray  (fifty or otherwise) in this world Cronan has created.  You’re on one  side or the other and the line between the two is very clearly  dilineated.  There’s a very Alan Moore-esque feel to this and it kept me turning the pages.  This deserves your time.

An amazon uk Top 10 Bestseller in 2012

Prince Dashan has been used to getting things his own way, with servants
to cater to his every whim. As the crown prince, it is essential that he
is protected and he is followed everywhere by his bodyguard, Ryland.
Dashan can’t even head to a tavern with his friends without Ryland somehow
turning up and spoiling his fun.

Dashan disguises himself as a peasant one night and sneaks off to the
brothel that he’s heard rumours about – a brothel that caters for men who
like men. The prince finds it difficult to admit to himself what his true
desires are – he yearns to submit his will to someone else. And Ryland is
just the man to show him what that truly means.

What they’re saying about it:

“This story is well written, with strong characters. This is especially
important in such a short story…I got a good feel for both of the
characters and became sympathetic to their plight.” – Rainbow Book
Reviews.

“Her characters are so intense and real that the second you finish the
story, you’re in utter shock and denial that the characters are not
actually standing in front of you, her writing style is absolutely lovely
for she has a way of making words flow along the pages, and she knows how
to entice the readers from the very beginning (of course having a half
naked man on the cover does help).” – Reader review by Reina Lorraine.

Rock Your Destiny!
^
Gina Santiago is a thirteen-year-old “Nuyorican” with rock star dreams, so when she’s accepted into the prestigious New York Academy of Arts and Talents for art instead of music, she’s crushed.
&
To make matters worse, the student body at the Upper East Side school is divided into “schollies” (students on scholarship, like her) and “dollies” (rich kids with “dollars”).
*
But Gina discovers that there is one thing that brings schollies and dollies-and dancers, singers, actors, artists, and musicians-together: music! Maybe she can make her dreams come true after all….
^
What they’re saying about it:
*
“Track one of the Arts Angels, Drawn to you, is a incredibly exciting, well put together story about a passion for music. I love the way the story leads the reader through all the feelings Gina is feeling. For example, the band moments make me happy, but when scenes with her mother come on I’m sitting with my nose against the paper of the book. This book is a fantastic, exciting and beautiful. It’s fantastic to see how the band grows, how relationships between characters are made and especially how some problems solve, but other mysteries appear again. Still stuck in the story, I really can’t wait for Track 2. What’s going to happen between Gina and Willow, and what about the two bands? Loved every bit of it. I really can’t think of anything negative to comment on. It was a wonderful story! Really well done!”

What they’re saying:

“Daisy Madigan’s Paradise has to be the most potent novella I’ve ever read”

tortThe Torturer’s Daughter by Zoe Cannon
Genre: Young Adult, Dystopian
Price: $2.99
Where to Get It:
Amazon   Barnes & Noble    Smashwords     Kobo

*

When her best friend Heather calls in the middle of the night, Becca assumes it’s the usual drama. Wrong. Heather’s parents have been arrested as dissidents – and Becca’s mother, the dystopian regime’s most infamous torturer, has already executed them for their crimes against the state.

To stop Heather from getting herself killed trying to prove her parents’ innocence, Becca hunts for proof of their guilt. She doesn’t expect to find evidence that leaves her questioning everything she thought she knew about the dissidents… and about her mother.

When she risks her life to save a dissident, she learns her mother isn’t the only one with secrets – and the plot she uncovers will threaten the lives of the people she loves most. For Becca, it’s no longer just a choice between risking execution and ignoring the regime’s crimes; she has to decide whose life to save and whose to sacrifice.

It’s easy to be a hero when you can save the world, but what about when all you can do is choose how you live in it? THE TORTURER’S DAUGHTER is a story about ordinary teenage life amidst the realities of living under an oppressive regime… and the extraordinary courage it takes to do what’s right in a world gone wrong.

 

What they’re saying about it:

“Cannon is a top-notch writer. Her dystopian world is horrifyingly real, and the plot is fast-paced and keeps the reader guessing.”

“This is a ‘coming of age’ tale with a vengeance. Beautifully told, it explores the gamut of emotions Becca experiences as she starts to catch horrifying glimpses behind the masks of her world and the people she loves.”

“Cannon masterfully wraps up the intrigue in the psychological ups and downs of the protagonist, Becca. While there is action that keeps this plot taut, there is also a lot of interior back and forth Becca goes through as she tries to figure out what her options are in a world where nothing makes sense. Even the antagonists (and I won’t say who they are) are sympathetic and well thought-out. At the end of this book, you’ll find yourself asking if the bad guys really were bad guys. A great statement on society wrapped up as a thrilling YA read.”
