- Blog Tour: Sovereign Hope by Frankie Rose
- Cover Reveal: Revenge in Rio by Samantha Darling
Everyone has a soul
Some are just worth more than others
Farley Hope was seventeen when her mother disappeared. In the last six months not much has changed, except that her eighteenth birthday came and went and still no sign of Moira. Her life is just as complicated as it always was. Since her father died in a car crash before she was even born, she’s officially parentless, and to top it all off she’s still suffering from the hallucinations. Mind-splitting, vivid hallucinations- the kind prone to induce night terrors and leave you whimpering under your covers like a baby.
The last thing on her mind is boys. Farley is on break from St. Judes’ when she meets Daniel. It’s not some casual run in at a party, or even a blind date with friends, though. Daniel is the guy following her in his 1970′s Dodge Charger; the guy standing at her window in the LA lunch hour traffic, trying to persuade her to leave everything behind and follow him. And he's hot as all hell.
The moment Farley lays eyes on Daniel, everything changes. He is cold and withdrawn, but there are cracks in his harsh veneer- cracks that betray the secrets he is trying so hard to hide. Farley is drawn into a world that will shake apart everything she thought she ever knew. There are truths out there that she must learn: that a person’s soul is their only real currency, and there are people who would do anything to take hers; that loving someone can hurt so much more than hating them; but, most importantly, when your future is predestined, there is little you can do to change it.
Farley Hope is prophesied.
Her coming has been awaited for hundreds of years.
She is destined to end the tyranny of the Soul Reavers.
To do so she must die.
What a great YA book this series is!! It is very appropriate for young readers, but has a tremendous story for us older readers that enjoy this genre as well! Sovereign Hope is full of twists and turns that kept me guessing what in the world would happen to Farley and her friends at all times. I never knew the outcome... and I love that aspect of this book!
Farley thought her mother was missing, the police had no clues to go on so she had no idea what happened to her mom. It was becoming more like the girl who cried wolf with her reporting to the cops. She was frustrated, alone, and worried sick. Not to mention that her paranoia has sky rocketed with her fear for her mother. She is constantly looking over her shoulder and imagining things that no one else can see... or at least that is what the doctors have said.
Little does Farley know, that she is special. She was born to an alien race of beings that she has never heard of, and doesn't quite believe. She is on her way home one day and feels that she is being followed. To her rescue comes a cute, green eyed boy (Daniel) that can do things humans shouldn't be able to do. Farley feels like she is losing her mind and her heart with just one glance his way.
Farley is about to go on an adventure of her lifetime... the question is will she make it out alive??? Daniel will get even more secretive, her friends will be endangered, and Farley will have to dig deep for courage, strength, and hope. I give Sovereign Hope 4 stars on the knock my socks off scale! I cannot wait for the next book in this series to see where Farley's adventure takes her!
About the Author:
As a child, I was always accused of being bookish because I wore glasses- big, horrible, ugly ones with too-thick lenses. Those kids, the super smart ones who always know which tender insecurities to poke at in order to provoke life-long complexes, used to accuse me of reading too many books and that my eyes were going to rot out of my head (their words, not mine!)
The truth of the matter was a little more embarrassing: I used to sit too close to the T.V. That was the reason why I had to wear glasses, but kids don’t really care about small, insignificant details like the truth, and so I was labelled a nerd. The label kinda stuck, and after some sage advice from my awesome nana (nana, you rock!) I decided that if I was going to be abused for my supposed literary obsession, I might as well develop one.
I guess that’s how I got into books and reading at an early age. Since then, I’ve been ripping through books like they’re going out of fashion, which, thankfully, they’re not. Good thing, too, because I’m a writer now, and books are my business!
Thank you to everyone who has supported and encouraged me on my journey- look for your names in the acknowledgements!

Reading and writing go hand in hand and from the day I could read, I enjoyed writing. To put pen to paper and conjure up weird and wonderful little stories was what I thrived on! English was my favourite class at school right throughout to secondary - and I will always be thankful for the teachers who gave me the opportunities to develop and be creative! If I remember rightly, one of my first stories was called 'The Turkey Who Could Talk'...but I'll tell you more about that some other day :-)
