The conclusion to the Outbreak duology!
We thought that the worst was over.
We had never been more wrong.
Every single person has secrets.
Some are just far more deadly than others.
There is more to the Outbreak than the others know.
And I will see to it that the truth is told.
After twenty-something years living as a weapon for Bilson Corporations, I decided that I wanted something else for my life – something more.
I wanted more. But at what cost?
ARABELLA is a standalone New Adult novella. It is complete at approximately 17,000 words.
Autumn Stone has spent her entire life in Lunica City, a home for those with the gift of magic. It was a place of freedom, a place of happiness, a place that she considered to be a part of her. Until a stranger destroyed that illusion with one single action.
He holds the key to who she really is.
But he also holds the ability to destroy her.
All they wanted was to regain control of their lives.
But they failed to realize what they’d lose in the process.
In this third and final novel in the Emile Reed Chronicles, secrets will be revealed, lives will be lost and choices will be made.
Every ending gives way to a new beginning.
She was everything he had aspired to create within a Program.
Emile was his prized possession, and he wasn’t going to let her go. Not without a fight, and certainly not without causalities.
She was everything to him.
And I was his ticket to getting her back.

I won an e-book copy of “Gravity” from the author off of LibraryThing in exchange for a review.
“Gravity” is a nice surprise. I wasn’t sure what to expect going in really. I wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did though.
Ariel’s best friend, Jenna, is a missing person. It’s rumored that she ran away, something that Ariel refuses to believe. Jenna’s parents and the cops are questioning Ariel as though she had something to do with Jenna’s disappearance. Ariel finds herself pulling away from people as she tries to handle the fact that Jenna is gone. After visiting the local orphanage, having envisioned Jenna running there in her dream, weird things begin happening to Ariel.
With school starting back up, Ariel is forced to face the students at school. No one wants to talk to her, though, and she finds herself closed off from everyone until she meets Theo and Henry.
Abigail Boyd did a wonderful job of creating characters that are realistic. They are flawed, they are impulsive, they are vulnerable. Ariel, Henry, and Theo are believable teenagers. The story itself was well thought out. There were some small issues with the writing, but definitely not enough to hinder the story.
Thankfully, “Gravity” is the first of a series because I still have a ton of questions after that ending. What happened with Henry? Where did they find Jenna? And how? What did the Principal have to do with any of it? I can’t wait for the second book!

I won this in a member giveaway on LibraryThing for review. "Psychomancer" isn't a bad book what-so-ever, but it just isn't for me. Since I wasn't able to finish it, I will not be posting a full review.
