FLUX, by Ellie Carstens, is out today ~ Happy Book Birthday to Ellie, REUTS publication, and FLUX!
“The last thing sixteen-year-old Alaina Oftedahl-Miller expected was to watch her mom brutally destroy their life.
But, in the wake of tragedy, strength forms. Shipped off to live with her birth father, Alaina finds herself dealing with more than just being the new Canadian girl in a Norwegian school. Juggling the formation of a relationship with the man who abandoned her as a child, and a budding attraction to Kaius Vargøy–the mysterious, beautiful classmate who’s been assigned as her personal translator–Alaina can’t shake the feeling that every move she makes is being watched. Judged.
She soon learns there’s far more to this sleepy Norwegian town than she ever imagined. Kaius and his friends aren’t exactly what they seem, and the repercussions of that could send her traveling through the most unexpected experience of her life. Murder and relocation is one thing, but add in supernatural occurrences and Vikings, and even she may not have the strength to survive.”
Sounds awesome, right? I’ve been following the release of this one for awhile. When the puzzle pieces of the cover came out, I scoured twitter to find them all. Guys, have you seen this cover?
That’s some serious cover eye-candy. The cover evokes a new world, almost intergalactic in a sense, and there seems to be something magical about it. I can’t wait to find out why. I mean, seriously, Vikings? That’s bad ass.
And now, here’s a gem for you guys: we get to meet the star of the book, Alaina!
So that’s it for me. I’m going to be not-so-patiently waiting for my copy to arrive. Sure enough, I’ll have a review to follow. Let me know what you guys think of this book, which you can purchase from REUTS Publication. Don’t forget to wish Ellie and REUTS a happy book birthday on FLUX!
For as long as she can recall, Ellie Carstens has been a huge fan of reading. The genre and content are not important as long as the story holds her captive. She believes that life is too short to be taken seriously all the time and to lose one’s self in a good book is an escape worth taking. Now, she writes science fiction, fantasy, romance, and beyond, creating stories that will hopefully bring that same passion for reading to others.
Flux is her debut title and the first in a Young Adult sci-fi/romance trilogy.
