Coming Soon: CAUGHT IN THE RIPPLES by S. McPherson {Giveaway/GuestPost}

Caught in the Ripples (The Water Rushes #2)
Genre: YA Fantasy
Release Date: July 31st 2016

When the Exlathars escaped the battle that night, their silhouetted figures merged with the sky, their wings swatted at stars and the Coltis people were too busy celebrating their victory to realise that there wasn’t one.

Now the Exlathars are back. And they bring with them remnants of everybody’s past.

Back in England, Dezaray discovers just how deep Coldivor’s connection to Earth really goes. But she cannot change their past and she cannot see how to alter their future. So it seems the ripples that shake the surface are only a glimpse of what’s brewing beneath.

'Caught in the Ripples' delves deeper into the Water Rushes saga, answers questions the first book raised and plunges you into an ocean of intrigue and magic. 

They thought the Elenfar was the end…turns out it was only the beginning.

I’ve always envied the reader that could devour a book in a day or two. To me, it seems like some sort of super power. A power, I haven’t yet mastered. I’m the slower reader who savours her books and generally reads one every fortnight. I am working to improve on that but in the meantime, here is a little look at the books I have read this year:
1.      Red Queen: I’m sure most of you know the delicious tale of Mare Barrow, a red blooded girl with supernatural gifts to rival the silver blooded. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and spent days and hours tracking down the sequel.

2.      Glass Sword: The much anticipated sequel to Red Queen. This one gave me a deeper look at the world of silvers and reds and had an ending that once again has me itching for the next.

3.      Throne of Glass: Another popular YA, fantasy about the brilliant assassin, Celaena Sardothien who uncovers a delicious secret about the world she lives in. I really enjoyed this book as well.

4.      Crown of Midnight: The sequel to Throne of Glass which sent so many butterflies trilling through me and I completely shipped Chaol and Celaena.

5.      Heir of Fire: The third book in the Throne of Glass series. This one didn’t excite me as much as the earlier two and seemed a bit dragged out. It certainly seemed like a setup for exciting things to come though and I’m still intrigued.

6.      Six of Crows: This one was brilliant. The story of six crooks who embark on one of their biggest crimes yet: a prison break. What I loved about this book was how fully rounded the crew were and how they were so much more than just criminals.

7.      City of Glass: I probably don’t need to say more. The fourth book in the incredible Mortal Instruments series. These books I am intentionally savouring because they are simply too delicious. Although now Cassandra Clare has released Lady Midnight etc. I am quite keen to finish the rest.

8.      Cinder: Such an interesting take on a retelling of Cinderella. One word: Cyborg. I really liked this book and I just recently purchased part two: Scarlet

9.      The Tales of Beedle the Bard: A bunch of brilliant fairy-tales for those of the Harry Potter, wizarding world. *sigh*

10.  I am currently reading The Young Elites: the story of a sickness that gave those it plagued, supernatural abilities. I am not too far in to it but I am thoroughly enjoying it so far.

Have you read any of these books? What are your thoughts? And what books are you currently reading? I would love some suggestions. YA, fantasy is my favourite but I’m up for anything.

When 17-year-old, Dezaray Storm drunkenly stumbles across a portal one night, her downtrodden life begins to change, mainly because she starts living someone else's life.

Accidently trading places with the most powerful sorceress of the realm Coldivor, Dezaray finds herself assuming the identity of her magical lookalike, having to convince everyone in the realm that she's the real deal.

Aside from a few minor hiccups along the way, like the fact that she is not magical nor does she know even the simplest cards trick; Dezaray soon finds herself settling in. Particularly in the arms of Milo; a blue-eyed jokester with the ability to teleport.

However, it doesn't take long for Dezaray to realise that life on the other side is far from glitz and glamour and that creatures unimaginable are hunting her. A war is brewing between the seven empires of Coldivor and those that long to take over. Dezaray's enchanted double is their only hope; their secret weapon, set to be unleashed on her eighteenth birthday when she is gifted the powers of her forefathers.

But for the enchantress to return, Dezaray has to leave, and the thought of going back to Islon fills Dezaray with dread, for more reasons than one. Torn between a reality she can't stand and a fantasy she can't keep, Dezaray is struggling to see how any choice she makes will lead to a happy ending.
