The End of the World BOOK BLAST!

At the Other End:
When myth becomes reality, reality becomes a nightmare.

Like any other teenager in America, Ashley just wants a normal life. But growing up in an orphanage for the insane is anything but normal. After endless therapy and increasing medication, her nightmares have only gotten worse.

Probably because they’re not nightmares.

When Ashley’s mysteriously abducted, she finds a reality even less normal than the orphanage. And she discovers something else—she’s no ordinary orphan. Faced with enemies thought to only exist in fairy tales, Ashley discovers she possesses a powerful Maya bloodline. She’s the daughter of an ancient Maya Guardian, whose duty is to protect the Stone of Muuk’ich, an enchanted relic blessed by the gods. But first she must get it back from Sarian, a power-hungry demigod who slaughtered the last guardian—Ashley’s mother. Without the stone, all will be lost.

When she meets Arwan, a hot Belizean time bender, his delicious olive skin and dark eyes make her feel a little less alone. But his gentle whispers and reassuring touch might not be all they seem. How can she balance love and duty when it’s up to her to prevent the rising of the underworld? Especially when the guy she loves might be its crown prince…

Author Bio:
A long time enthusiast of things that go bump in the night, Theresa started her writing career as a journalism intern—possibly the least creative writing field out there. After her first semester at a local newspaper, she washed her hands of press releases and features articles to delve into the whimsical world of young adult paranormal romance.

Since then, Theresa has gotten married, had three terrific kids, moved to central Ohio, and was repeatedly guilt tripped into adopting a menagerie of animals that are now members of the family. But don’t be fooled by her domesticated appearance. Her greatest love is travel. Having stepped foot on the soil of over a dozen countries, traveled to sixteen U.S. states—including an extended seven-year stay in Kodiak, Alaska—she is anything but settled down. But wherever life brings her, she will continue to weave tales of adventure and love with the hope her stories will bring joy and inspiration to her readers.

Girl in Heaven:

My little piece of Heaven topic, YA Books on Mythology.

Mythology is a big part of YA today. Is it real? Or is it another form of reality? Some of the most popular YA books are based on some form of mythology. Think vampires, greek gods & goddesses, dragons, warewolves, the fey and everything inbetween. Some forms of mythology start to get a bit old, this is mainly because of the hype that surrounds the most popular types of mytholiogical creatures. Although the mythology bit is common among many YA books, most of the stories try and develop the common traits of a particular mytholigical creature, making it unique in their own way, so we, as readers can pick up a book and not feel like we're falling into the same hole.

What kind of creatures are to come in the new year? Any old creatures seeing the light of day? So, what is a book on mytholigy that you have read that has leaped the bounds of common mythology? What books won't you touch now because of the 'creature overuse'? Let me know in the COMMENTS!
