New Release: Raging by Holly Kelly

Clean Teen Publishing is excited to announce the release of Raging, the long-awaited conclusion to Holly Kelly's Rising Series.

For two thousand years, a betrayer has occupied the throne on Olympus. Hungry for power, he has wreaked havoc among the gods, as well as the humans on earth. But a spark of hope ignites in the form of four young women—ones who are destined to free the true king and save the human world. Two have been found, and the others must be located before it’s too late.
Drakōn would love nothing more than to turn his back on the whole thing. It’s not that he doesn’t care about humans, but he has his own world to worry about. But then, he is given an impossible task—one he finds himself unable to refuse. He is charged with protecting a woman, but not just any woman—Tana, goddess of wind and fire.
Tana is more than he bargains for. Sentenced to an eternity of imprisonment for burning hundreds to death in a fiery inferno, she has powerful enemies. Drakōn finds himself facing off with those adversaries even as he questions why he doesn’t simply destroy her himself. But Tana is one of four destined to save the world. That is, if she doesn’t destroy it first. And Drakōn? He may just lose his most guarded possession. His heart.


Heat radiated from Tana. She could feel it surfacing—burning from within. When she rose to her feet, the shower of stones ceased. Through a reflective puddle of water, she could see the glow of fire dancing over her skin.
Anger flowed through her as she glared at her attackers. Her hair whipped around her face as the wind picked up. The terror-stricken faces of those surrounding her gave her a certain satisfaction. Without remorse, she let the flames swell.
Let them burn.
After all, they had tried to kill her first. It was time to see how they liked it.
Clarity struck for a moment when the frightened eyes of a small child peeked around the skirt of his mother.
What am I doing?
Closing her eyes, Tana attempted to calm the flames that delighted in seeking out tinder and flesh to burn. Her hands clenched into fists, shaking with effort. But the fire would not be calmed. It was too late.
Run,” she whispered, her breathing ragged. She raised her eyes to the crowd and shouted, “Run!”

Rising (The Rising Series Book 1) 

In a war between the humans and the inhabitants of the sea--humans will lose. Xanthus Dimitriou--the most lethal Dagonian to rise from the ocean--is on a mission to save mankind from annihilation. But first there's one small thing he needs to do... kill a beautiful young woman in a wheelchair.

Killing her doesn't start out as part of his plan. He entrenches himself deep in the human world. Aligning with his enemies, he prepares to send them to Triton to face their punishment. Then Sara Taylor rolls onto the scene. Xanthus knows at once she's a criminal. And her crime? Being born. She's a human/Dagonian half-breed, an abomination. Killing her should be an easy job. All he has to do is break into her apartment, slit her throat, and feed her body to the sharks. Simple, right? Wrong. If only she weren't so beautiful, so innocent, so sweet...

Saving the world may have to wait. It appears Xanthus has a woman to save. But protecting her may cost him his own life.

Descending (The Rising Series Book 2) 

When Xanthus cashes in a long-standing favor, Kyros is faced with doing two things he thought he'd never do—protect a mermaid and live on land. Dagonians loathe mermaids and Sara, Xanthus's wife, is no exception. Also, a Dagonian standing on human legs? As if being around the vile creatures responsible for polluting his home and killing his sister wasn't horrible enough, Kyros has to deal with Sara's troublesome human friend, Gretchen. 

Kyros can't help but resent Gretchen. Not only is she human and unforgettably gorgeous, but she leaves him swimming in confusion and feeling things he shouldn't be feeling—least of all for a land-walker! When Gretchen is nearly killed by an assassin's bullet, Kyros's mission changes. He's forced to become her protector. Forced is a gross exaggeration, though. The more time Kyros spends with Gretchen, the more he finds himself falling for this spunky, witty human. When it becomes apparent that something dark and evil will stop at nothing to see Gretchen dead, Kyros expends his resources to find out who that being is. Unfortunately, the answer causes more problems than it solves. When a rogue mermaid wants you dead, you’re safe from no one… not even the ones you love.

Avenging (The Rising Series Book 3)

Two thousand years ago, King Triton witnessed the slaughter and total annihilation of his merchildren. He vowed then and there to never again father a child. Powerful and eternally youthful, Triton was no stranger to seduction. But his resolve was unwavering—until he met Nicole. Unable to resist the human woman, he found himself swept up in her arms. When he finally came to his senses, he abandoned her to return to his refuge in the sea. 

Twenty years later, he comes face to face with his daughter. Triton is both thrilled and frightened to learn he's a father. Meeting the child he never knew fills a void in his life. But at the same time, he once again finds his heart at risk. Even more terrifying, he's forced to admit he's still in love with Nicole. Gathering his courage, he leaves the sea to seek her out. But the pain he caused is not easily forgotten. And mending broken hearts should be the least of his worries. The elements are in commotion, threatening the utter destruction of mankind. And much to the sea god's surprise, the human woman he loves may be the key to saving them all.

Review: Hanging Pawns (Fate Book 2) by Emersyn Vallis

Hanging Pawns by Emersyn Vallis

We all have choices in life… paths to take… roads to follow…. 
It’s on those journeys that fate finds us and takes us where we need to be… Without a second glance we can be taken away from things we know… "people we love" and given a new life... 
One that can change us… save us… 
What would you do if fate dropped you at a crossroads? Would you go back? Or would you run like hell the other way? 

My Review

In book one, we are told the story of Sidney & Simon. In this book we learn the story of Mea & Josh.

Mea comes from money. She has a family but I wouldn't describe them as loving. Her mother is as cold & calculated as they come. Her father just seems to exist. It's a really sad home life.

Mea decides to do what's best for her. So she leaves one night and starts a new life. She meets Josh and he introduces her to Morgan & Molly, who in turn introduce her to the triplets-Simon, Dean & Chase.

It's a fun read with some romance. I really love Morgan & Molly and the spunkiness they bring out in Mea. Definitely my favorite in the series so far!
