Today we are excited to participate in the blog tour for Melted Tears. Melted Tears, a young adult science fiction romance, is the second book in the Outlier Chronicles. It will be released on September 9, 2013 by Inkspell Publishing.
About the Book
Two lovers face off against a government determined to keep them apart. It’s only brave if it’s hard.
After a decade of being alone in the wilderness, Cressenda is still adjusting to life with the man of her dreams. When Beckett hatches a plan to break her parents out of The Affinity prison work camps, Cressenda must make the biggest sacrifice of her life; trading her freedom for her parents’. Cressenda’s fortitude is tested at every turn, from surviving the conditions of West Fallen work camp to believing in Beckett’s dedication to their plan and their love, even when it looks like all hope is lost. With the help of a unlikely ally, Cressenda learns to stop fighting against her fears and embrace the power of fighting for her dreams.
Will trusting Beckett to take down The Affinity be the ultimate show of faith or a fatal mistake?
This book may be short, but it does not disappoint! I wish I had read the first book, Frozen Heart, mainly because of how many great reviews it has. I do plan to go back and get it, because of how much I enjoyed this one.
Even though this book is short, it packs a punch. This ‘dystopian’ world was completely different than any other book I’ve read in the genre: a remote wilderness full of snow. Brilliant! Other than that, the rest of the world was set up like so many dystopian worlds: The Affinity rules over the people. Cressenda and her love, Beckett, take on the Affinity to save her parents from work/prison camps. To save them, the two become prisoners. So, the years she spent on her own, of course were washed away to get back her parents.
The characters were complex and the writing was superb. I was so wrapped up in the world, I just didn’t want it to end. The vivid imagery brought the book to life and that wasn’t always ideal (especially when describing death and sick people). Annabelle is an excellent writer and I cannot wait to see more from her.
I don’t want to give away too much more of the book, but I will say that I recommend it to anyone who loves sci-fi, dystopian, or romance. Be sure to start with Frozen Hearts so you get the whole story!
About the Author
Annabelle is a Science Fiction and Urban Fantasy Romance author, that is, when she’s not checking homework or begrudgingly cooking dinner. Wife, mother, and creator of alternate worlds, Annabelle has a penchant for that which is outside the norm.
Her Sociology degree has given her the ability to construct worlds that exist only in her head and translate them passionately to the page. The time spent studying individuals, interpersonal relationships, and particularly, women, within the constraints of our society led to Annabelle’s unabashed ability to talk about sex as it fits into our modern lives.
She’s also the author/personality of The Bombshell Mommy at Vitacost.com, where she expounds her knowledge of being a vixen clad in sweatpants.
A serial book monogamist, Annabelle is deeply devoted to the literary love of her life until the next amazing book falls into her clutches and she obsesses anew.
