Lissa Dragomir is a Moroi princes – a mortal vampire with a rare gift for harnessing the earth's magic. She must be protected at all times from Strigoi: the fiercest vampires – the ones who never die. The powerful blend of human and vampire blood that flows through Rose Hathaway, Lissa's best friend, makes her a Dhampir. Rose is dedicated to a dangerous life of protecting Lissa from the Strigoi, who are hell-bent on making Lissa one of them.

After two years of freedom, Rose and Lissa are caught and dragged back to St. Vladimir's Academy, a school for vampire royalty and their guardians-to-be, hidden deep in the forests of Montana. But inside the iron gates, life is even more fraught with danger... And the Strigoi are always close by.

Rose and Lissa must navigate their dangerous world, confront the temptations of forbidden love, and never once let their guard down, lest the evil undead make Lissa one of them forever.

On The Grill: Perry the Prickler

I have a thing for Perry, the sassy Prickler that is verging on a cult following. Perry lives within Fire Country, a blazing world created by author David Estes. Considering he's stuck firmly in the ground, he was incredibly hard to pin down. Desperate fans are wandering Fire Country just for a glimpse of his prickles. Luckily, I was able to track down his assistant, David Estes and arranged an interview with the smart mouthed Prickler himself. Check out the Fire Country book birthday and giveaway HERE.

Hi online human blog people! sways in the wind For those of you who don’t know me, I’m everyone’s favorite character from David Estes’s book, Fire Country. I’m a cactus, or a prickler as the local tribes people call me, as well as an amateur stand-up comedian. (Don’t pretend like you didn’t laugh at at least one thing I said in Fire Country.) I want to thank Kelly the Diva Booknerd for having me on her awesome blog (whatever a blog is).

Author on the Grill: The all 'round awesome, Michael Adams

Check out my review of The Last Girl and The Last Shot.

It's no secret that I love me some post apocalyptic dystopian, mix in an Australian author that I believe is the next John Marsden, and you've got a brilliantly creepy, edgy and incredibly written series that will blow the socks clean off your feet. Finally we have a young female heroine who isn't a love struck idiot, a villain that has the potential to rip your heart out and a population of catatonic citizens that are one step away from death. It's explosive, so when I heard that author Michael Adams was available to interview, I jumped at the chance to put him on the grill.

After facing the heartbreaking truth in Shadow Valley, Danby is determined to have her revenge on Jack.

With Jack dead, her little brother Evan and hundreds of other Minions will be free of his control. With Jack dead, she and her friend Nathan will be able to revive thousands more from the millions of catatonic Goners. But what if she's wrong - about everything?

After Danby confronts Jack on a dying stretch of highway, all of her beliefs are turned inside out. Not only are his feelings for her real, he's working against the clock to save lives and rebuild society. To Danby's horror, it's Nathan who appears to threaten the new order.

With her emotions raging and blood on her hands, Danby has to take a side in a deadly battle that'll decide the future of the world. And as allies become enemies and foes turn into friends, she'll have to embrace methods so dark that the price of survival may be her very soul.
Danby remains in Shadow Valley, preparing for the fight of her life. It's now been seven long days since the world ended with the phenomenon known The Snap, where your inner most thoughts are being broadcast into the minds of all those around you. Danby now realises that Jack isn't the savior he pretends to be. He's amassing an army of Minions, awakening their minds, but controlling their bodies and only those diagnosed with Situs Inversus are immune. But it isn't as simple as killing Jack, or Danby may risk the lives of everyone under Jack's control, including Danby's brother Evan. With Nathan missing and wounded, it's Danby's responsibility to end Jack's reign... But what if she's wrong?

The only option Danby has, is to use Jack's genuine feelings towards her to earn his trust. She needs to appear to be working with Jack, not against him. But Jack pleads his innocence, having nothing to do with the trail of deceased victims on the return journey from Shadow Valley, and claims while Danby was gone, he's been reviving survivors and putting them to use. Jack wants to build a safe society and has set up a camp of refugees, all but twelve controlled by Jack. There are twelve other Specials like Danby who are working for Jack, unaware that he controls the majority of the camp inhabitants. It seems the only way to tell who isn't under Jack's control is to see who's armed. Those in control of themselves aren't offered firearms, Jack clearly not trusting those not under his mind control. But perhaps what Jack is trying to accomplish isn't as sinister as Danby believes, and she finds herself falling for the boy who has the compacity to change the world.

But Danby refuses to let her guard down, and when it seems a showdown between two foes is on the horizon, she realises she's been used as a pawn. She and Evan are on the run for their lives, with an army and arsenal gunning her down. The Specials are now a wanted race, their differences are enough to warrant their executions. It's now kill or be killed, but can Danby move from average teen to cold blooded murderer?

Kelly's Thoughts

The Last Shot was phenomenal, and most of you would know that I rarely find myself giddy over a book, or a series for that matter. This is the immaculate example of brilliant Australian post apocalyptic, which leads me to draw the comparison with John Marsden's Tomorrow series. But unlike John Marsden, Michael Adams has built on the success of The Last Girl and has produced a brilliant second installment. Danby is the reluctant hero, she isn't a fighter, and up until a week ago, she was simply another teen living with her father, flighty stepmother and half brother Evan. It's incredible what can change in only seven days.

Jack is the ultimate anti villain. He's seemingly warm and sensitive, but simmering just under the surface, he's ruthless and cold. He's the sexy, deranged godly figure that holds humanity in his hands. His influential power drives him to the point of being a madman. Although Jack has the potential to destroy, his feelings for Danby seem genuine. I found myself completely invested in Jack's character, so much more so than Nathan. I can understand how Danby is feeling so torn, I switch between loving his character and loathing him.

The Last Girl was incredible, but this one will blow your socks clean off your feet. Most readers will draw the same comparison to the John Marsden series, but realistically, the two couldn't be more different. The Last Girl series is far superior, and the author has created the ultimate Australian post apocalyptic that will appeal to a far greater audience than simple young adult fans. It's authors such as Michael Adams that have bred new life into Aussie young adult, fresh storylines, brilliantly crafted characters and an epic cliffhanger that completely wiped the smile off my face. This man can write a heart stopping ending like nobody's business.

Well played Mr Adams. Well played.

Alyssa Gardner hears the whispers of bugs and flowers, precisely the affliction that landed her mother in a mental hospital years before. This family curse stretches back to her ancestor Alice Liddell, the real-life inspiration for Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa might be crazy, but she manages to keep it together.

When her mother’s mental health takes a turn for the worse, Alyssa learns that what she thought was fiction is based in terrifying reality. The real Wonderland is a place far darker and more twisted than Lewis Carroll ever let on. There, Alyssa must pass a series of tests, including draining an ocean of Alice’s tears, waking the slumbering tea party, and subduing a vicious bandersnatch, to fix Alice’s mistakes and save her family.

She must also decide whom to trust: Jeb, her gorgeous best friend and secret crush, or the sexy but suspicious Morpheus, her guide through Wonderland, who may have dark motives of his own.
Alyssa Gardner is related to Alice Liddell, the girl who inspired the classic, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, penned by Lewis Carroll, not that she could ever forget who she is. At school, her peers tease her relentlessly, but if only they knew. Alyssa can hear the sounds of nature, literally. The whispers of the bees, the flower petals chattering and knows it's only a matter of time before she joins her mother in the asylum, being heavily sedated and only eating from a teacup. No one knows what happened to Alyssa's mother, especially not neighbour Jeb. Jeb and Alyssa were once best friends, until he decided to start spending time with his new girlfriend, and it still pains Alyssa to come to terms with Jeb not being hers. Not that she's could ever tell him, especially now that she's losing her mind. But is she?

All signs point to the children's fairytale being real, but before her mother loses what little of her sanity that remains, Alyssa makes the conscious decision to explore a world she's tried so hard to avoid. But why does it seem strangely familiar? Finding the rabbit hole is no mean feat, but she never expected Jeb to tag along for the ride. Now both are stuck in Wonderland, a fantasy world in which was greatly exaggerated by Lewis Carol. A rabbit that is a pint sized skeleton, man eating flowers, overly affectionate sprites and Morpheus, her guide to Wonderland.

Morpheus, half boy, half moth and magnificent. He's graceful, seductive and promises a series of tests throughout the dark fantasy world is the key to breaking the family curse, with the Liddell family being freed from the magic that will ultimately drive them to insanity. Morpheus is a key to Alyssa's past, the two having formed an attachment well before Jeb was a part of her life. She can't help but be torn between the two boys, Morpheus who promises passion and adoration if she chooses to stay in Wonderland, and Jeb, the boy that now holds her heart and promises to keep her safe. But Alyssa doesn't have time for distractions, if she's to save her mother, and herself, she'll need to make it through Wonderland alive.

Kelly's Thoughts

Splintered was incredible! The world A. G Howard created was magnificent, rich and deliciously dark. I was completely immersed from cover to cover, drawn into a world that was luscious, magical and impeccably written. I really enjoyed Alyssa's character, she's realistic and faces issues that teens can relate to, apart from the talking flowers and bugs of course. She's in love with a boy who's already in a relationship and has never found the courage to tell him how she feels. The only grounding influence in Alyssa's life is her father, who is still morning the loss of his wife to insanity.

The writing was immaculate, it flowed beautifully and painted a very vivid image of Wonderland. But where the Lewis Carroll's original was a classic fairytale, Splintered is dark, sexy and eerie. I absolutely loved it. I'm not generally a fan of young adult Fantasy as a whole, but this one is spectacular. Even with a love triangle, it wasn't the typical cliched read. My only regret is that I didn't pick this one up sooner.

And I'm team Morpheus all the way.

Check out my review for Afterworld
Dom is the youngest person ever to arrive in the Necropolis, the 'waiting place' between death and what comes after. And it isn't long before he catches the attention of Satarial, a cruel Nephilim from the beginning of time, who has grim plans to use Dom as entertainment in his vicious gladiatorial games. When Dom's still-living sister, Kaide, appears in the Necropolis too, Satarial has the leverage he needs, and the stage is set for the biggest shake-up the afterlife has seen in centuries.

Dom's only option is to compete in the Trials and attempt to win the chance to enter the Maze. In his favour he has an enigmatic young Guide, Eva, and a Guardian, Eduardo, who may not be what he seems. But will they be enough?

So quirky, like a John Green novel, but with the ending that we're all praying for. Big fan of her work, so when I seen these two, had to snap them up.

Dom is the youngest person ever to arrive in the Necropolis, the 'waiting place' between death and what comes after. And it isn't long before he catches the attention of Satarial, a cruel Nephilim from the beginning of time, who has grim plans to use Dom as entertainment in his vicious gladiatorial games. When Dom's still-living sister, Kaide, appears in the Necropolis too, Satarial has the leverage he needs, and the stage is set for the biggest shake-up the afterlife has seen in centuries.

Dom's only option is to compete in the Trials and attempt to win the chance to enter the Maze. In his favour he has an enigmatic young Guide, Eva, and a Guardian, Eduardo, who may not be what he seems. But will they be enough?
Dominic has just returned to India, where his adoptive parents now call home, along with older sister Kaide. Kaide loves the wild streets of India, where Dom just wants to retreat within himself. His father has finally opened the clinic to treat the destitute community, a cause his mother decided wasn't worth her effort, now spending her days socializing with wealthy gossips, cold and never seemingly happy.But in an instant, the Mather's family is torn apart and Dom finds himself in the Necropolis, a place where the dead find themselves in limbo, before they pass onto the next journey of their lives.

Not knowing what became of sister Kaide, Dom meets Ava, who's role is to guide him through the afterworld, and along with drunk guardian Dom is the youngest person to have ever entered the gates, and at only fifteen, he's an instant sensation. At first glance, Necropolis seems to be pure and serene, but the inhabitants live in fear of the Nephilim, a group of half human, half angel beings that are in control, including their leader Satarial.

In the afterworld, currency is measured in minutes. Remedial positions attract a measly three minutes per day in wages, and the most you accumulate and keep at any one time is seven days, just enough time to attempt the maze. The maze is the ultimate goal, your destiny in how your heart will be judged whether you are able to move on from the city. But when Dom attracts the attention of Satarial, he may have a chance at winning the minutes he needs to compete. The Nephilim rule with an iron fist, and encourage competitors to compete in the Arena, a gladiator style battle which allows citizens the opportunity to complete the maze. Dominic has no choice when Satarial brings an assurance over from the living world, and reluctantly agrees to the tyrants terms.

But the battle of the Arena is the least of Dom's worries as he is plunged into a world of hieroglyphs to learn, training techniques to survive and an afterworld that is on the verge of a revolution, inspired by the youngest boy to ever reach the city.

Kelly's Thoughts

Afterworld was slow to start, but provided a rich history and backstory into Dominic's life before he had crossed over. Dominic is from a blended family, his adoptive parents are white, his adoptive sister is Asian and Dominic himself is African American. Dom and Kaide have an easy rapport, teasing one another about their heritage. But where Kaide is happy go lucky, Dom is a deep thinker, emotional and mature beyond his fifteen years. An old soul in the body of a teenage boy. My favourite character was the drunken guardian Eduardo, who himself is hiding a secret. He begun as arrogant, and his less than impressive attitude was exactly what the slow, bland city of Necropolis needed. Satarial is a mild villain, making Afterworld perfect for the younger teen audience, especially teen boys. The Arena and deathly maze will enthrall them.

I loved how Lynnette Lounsbury created a mix of real mythology and make believe, it was enchanting. The Awe, the God representation, felt like a subtle creation to include all religions, making it a suitable read regardless of your own personal beliefs. Unlike so many young adult novels that include mythology, there aren't any long and boring speeches, thank goodness. I applause authors that can create a fantasy world, without turning it into a boring history lesson.

The real action begins when Dominic begins preparing for the arena. From there, it turns into an action adventure, even the sassy Ava gets riled up, especially at Dominic, who begins seeing Ava as more than his personal guide to Necropolis. Teens and even teen boys will really enjoy this one, especially those that enjoy a little Hunger Games style action and adventure.

Danika and her crew of escaped refugees are seeking the safety of the Magnetic Valley, and trying to evade Sharr Morrigan, the king's most lethal hunter. But the borderlands they must cross to reach the Valley are smugglers' territory: lawless, wild and steeped in ancient magic. When one of the crew is badly wounded, Danika turns to the smugglers for help, and accepts a bargain that might prove deadly.

It is Lukas, however, who hides the most dangerous secret. What has he seen through the eagle's eyes? The answer can be found in an alchemy charm and a smuggler's tale, and will lead Danika and her friends to an electrifying, unputdownable showdown.
They've destroyed the King's airbase and now the hunters are hot on their trail, as they continue to search for the Magnetic Valley. With only the smugglers song to guide them, the refugee crew is in the midst of the ultimate game of cat and mouse, with the newly ostracized Sharr Morrigan leading the charge. Danika is struggling to control her newly developed proclivity of night, desperately afraid of herself to the shadows. The terrain is unforgiving as the group descend into knife, the rocky barriers proving too much for their stolen Foxaries and now the group must complete their journey on foot, keeping to the undergrowth and rocky outcrops to disguise their steps.

Using his proclivity, Lukas can see what the journey holds beyond Taladia, much to the distrust of his crew. Danika clings to the moment she and Lukas shared while waiting for their execution, and refuses to believe he has betrayed them. So when Lukas sneaks off into the night, Danika is close behind. But little does she know that she's now responsible for Teddy, Maisy and Clementin's demise. She's desperate to find her crew when she stumbles across Silver, an aging Smuggler who reluctantly agrees to join the search, but for a price. Silver holds a secret of her own, she's more than just another illegal merchant, but will she betray the group before they reach freedom?

The King is amassing an army. Since the explosion depleted the King's first plan of action, he is now recruiting those of earth and water proclivities and congregating within reach of the Magnetic Valley. The crew is in a shambles, either barely clinging to life, missing and now they're being followed to the Valley, by someone who just may want to see their demise as well. Their only option is to forge forward, but even with the aide of an alchemy charm and sheer determination, will it be enough?

Kelly's  Thoughts

The Chasing the Valley series has skyrocketed to one my favourite series. Book one was among my top five reads of last year, and Borderlands blows it out of the water. It's the ultimate blend of an oppressive rule, a post apocalyptic landscape, adventure, survival and a touch of romance, beautifully woven into a heart stopping storyline. The crew is still clinging to the Magnetic Valley being their savior, with Danika having nothing to return to. The alchemy bombs destroyed her home, killing her family in the process. Danika is struggling with her feelings towards Lukas, the crew don't trust the son of the King himself and perhaps with good reason. But more than a few twists arise along the way, and one you won't see coming. I loved the element of surprise, it's unpredictable and will keep you guessing to the very end.

It was once only Australian young adult contemporary novels that were receiving accolades, but the magical mix of fantasy and dystopian being released by Australian authors is incredible, and Skye Melki Wegner is leading the charge. The release of Skyfire, the final in this incredible trilogy, can't come soon enough.

Bravo Skye, Bravo.
