Quick Note & Review from Jenn
I first discovered Belle Malory years ago while reading her romance, Wanderlove. It is still one of my top five favorite Indie novels. Belle has a true gift for capturing your heart with her characters and their stories. She is a truly gifted writer and I hope you will give her Twelfth Keeper Series a try. I can promise any fans of YA Sci-Fi/Fantasy, you are missing out if you haven't read Belle's works. Here is my review for Book 1 in the Twefth Keeper Series:
Belle Mallory has a talent for taking us on fantastical journeys, whether it be into the mysterious lives of gypsies or the near future. I loved this story for its heroine in all her sweetness and faults. It was refreshing to read a story where the lead isn't already a sassy confident hero. And even more rewarding when she comes into her own in the end. The mythology of earth keepers throughout the ages is original and intriguing. Looking forward to learning more in the sequel. Great cast of characters, especially swoon worthy and aptly named Phoenix. A must read for any science fiction or fantasy fan.
Maybe their souls really were here together. Somehow, some way—but that couldn’t be possible. She shook herself, trying to shake away the feeling. Believing this was all real would only drive her further down the road to insanity. She was already having trouble getting a grip on reality as it was. She needed to stay grounded. Rational. Outside of here, she had a life to live. Believing in the reality of this Phoenix would make her want to give all that up.
“What are you thinking about?” Phoenix joined her by the edge of the pool and looked up at the skylights.
Telling him the truth would only ruin the moment. “I’m thinking about how we should spend our time here.”
Whatever time they had, she didn’t want to waste it. Without hesitation, she dived into the water. She preferred swimming in the ocean. Water without limits. This water was cool, clear, tasted like chlorine, but everything about it still held a sense of magic. Kennedy floated at the deep end for a while before coming up.
When she did, Phoenix knelt by the edge, minus his shirt.
She smiled playfully. “Are you getting in?”
There was no point in being shy. In this place, could openly show her affection. In this place…she was free.
“I was considering it.” He grinned.
The water slowly rose toward him, Kennedy pushing it with her mind. Phoenix saw it coming, and shook his head. “No way. You’re not playing fair.”
“Then jump in already. Don’t make me drown you, Jorgensen.”
His skin brightened, little flickering flames bursting from his palms and the soles of his feet. “It’s okay if you do,” he said, standing up. “I’d rather drown inside this infinite night than to ever see the light of day again.” With that said, he dived into the water.
She felt him pull her under by her feet. Air bubbles escaped when she tried to laugh. But down here, she didn’t need air. The water protected her completely.
She reached for Phoenix, found his lips, and gave him her oxygen.
She thought about what he said, about drowning inside this dream, and wondered if it were even possible. If she could find a way to sleep forever, would it really be the worst way to go? He said it was his perfect moment. She supposed it was hers, too. To freeze it for all eternity…well…that would be okay with her.
