Hi my hot cut girly geeks and boy geeks of course.
Welcome to this amazing book release day blitz. Evanescent by Carlyle Labuschagne, the second book in the broken novel series. And I can tell you that if it’s as good as the first book it is definitely a must read.
The first book in the series, the broken destiny, I gave a 5 star rating. I read it in just one day, too good to put down and ever since I’ve been waiting for the second book to come out. (I still owe you guys a review for this one) And the wait is over! Finally and hooray! And not only that, I’ve been in contact with the author and she is just so lovely and very nice.

Ava knows much more, and feels much more than she is allowed to. When she starts questioning her origins and the destruction of Earth, things go horribly wrong for her. She is saved by a Minoan boy from an attempted kidnapping on her life – the perpetrators are evil Zulus and their dark ancient magic. Humans and Minoans are forbidden to interact with each other, and as she is taken back to their village she finds out why – they know of her, her kind and her destiny to save a dying race. Ava must rid them from the Council’s ruling and free the galaxy of The Shadow. Her destiny is to rise above the fall, because within her soul is the key to an archaic weapon that has been missing in the mix of a genetic code since the time of the ancients. As the prophecy unfolds she learns of her bloodline – a bloodline that makes her less human than she could ever have imagined. She alone has the power to destroy or save, but the mind-shift is a horrible thing. Ava will become what she hates to save the ones she loves. Beaten, poisoned, possessed and betrayed by her own emotions, she has no choice but to rise above it all… for that is her Destiny.

And as a treat for you guys, the prologue:
All my life, I had searched for something, something I thought I ought to be. I felt like I was living someone else’s life, waiting for the awakening of my own. I felt like an empty shell burning for life. That was, until the day I lay dying in the prince’s chambers. I could no longer feel the pain from the tear in my gut. The only sensation left was a hollowed-out feeling that I had made a huge mistake in assuming that taking my own life, would have stopped the ancestors’ spirit from raging out. I had given up. I didn’t want to see myself killing the ones I loved. I was the Chosen one, but I threw it all away for what I thought would save a life. Could you end a life to save a life? I did, and I have regretted it ever since. I realized then that things like me are not meant to exist. What had been missing my whole life? It was I. To find myself, I had to lose myself in the worst possible way. The consequences of my actions became the legend of The Broken.
I hope you enjoyed this post, and I can’t remind you enough to go get your copy of Evanescence, by Carlyle Labuschagne!
Love, your own hot cute girly geek, Mendy.
