2013 Summer Author Blitz Tour – Guest Post with Samira Bellissimo

SummerAPBsmallbutton

 Today I’m so happy to be part of the Summer Author Blitz, hosted by Belle Whittington & Tabatha Perry !  I’m happy to host Samira Bellisimo, author of the book Beyond the Darkness. She did a guest post for my blog!

Beyond-the-Darkness-14486136-7Queen Evita and King Ceron Vioras have been brutally murdered. Their four children, believed to also be dead, have escaped. After ten years, they return to their kingdom to find a world that is corrupt, centered around their father’s death, and run by the man who killed him. Their people have been led astray for far too long. It is time for the Vioras to lead them out of the darkness, and reveal what lies beyond it.

 From the author:

My favorite element of Beyond the Darkness is my favorite element of life: the collaboration of beautiful and unique characters.  Here are my characters’ stories:

 Ceron Vioras:

When I was alive, I was a king.  I put my people’s interests before my own.  I loved my family.  I still do.  After my beautiful wife and I were murdered, we watched over our children to keep them out of harm’s way.  Now, our children are grown.  I have allowed them to enter harm’s way just enough to be returned to our kingdom and to learn their roles in this world.  Now that my children are in our kingdom once again, I trust they will lead our people.  I will guide them along the way, counseling and advising them through dreams.  They have much to teach through both actions and words.  I trust my people will learn from them.

 Evita Vioras:

I love my children with all my heart.  As I watch them grow up by husband’s side, I know they have made us very proud and will continue to do so.  No matter what happens in life, they always dance.

 Adam Vioras:

I am the oldest child and the only son of Ceron and Evita Vioras.  When I love someone, I love them with all my heart.  I suppose that’s why I’m a wolf; I am loyal to my pack.

When I was thirteen years old, my life changed forever.  My mother called me to her.  She led me out of the house to make sure my sisters would not hear our conversation.  Her eyes were full of tears.  She told me one of our subjects planned to murder us.  She told me she and my father were the ones this man was really after.  She told me their murders were unavoidable at this point; that if Cherape didn’t kill them, his followers would; that if they left Cherape would find them; that if Cherape found them with my sisters and me, none of us would be spared.  She told me her and my father’s only concern now was keeping my sisters and me safe.  She told me to leave with my sisters that night, lead them to a remote place in the mountains where no one could find us, and to never return home.

I wanted to find a way to save my sisters and my parents.  Logically, I knew I couldn’t, but in my heart, I have never accepted that what I did was my only option.  My siblings, my parents, and I all gathered together.  My parents told us how deeply they loved us, and that my sisters and I needed to leave for a trip but they would join us as soon as they could.  After a tearful goodbye, I took the supplies my father had packed for us, and I left with my sisters, knowing my parents would be dead by morning, and telling my sisters that everything was fine.  All was going according to plan, but the oldest of my little sisters seemed to know something was wrong.  We were already deep into the forest.  We were already out of sight.  We needed to keep going.  Then, a mare’s whinny echoed through the forest.  Victoria knew it was mom’s.  She ran back through the forest, toward our home.  I morphed into my wolf form and ran after her, but I did not catch up to her in time.  I seized her as she reached the forest’s edge.  I threw my hand over her mouth before she could scream.  We were both horrified by what we saw.  Our home was on fire.  Our parents were being stabbed to death.  As hard as she fought to run to our parents, I pulled Victoria back into the woods.  I tried to explain to her that our parents could not be saved, and that trying to save them would get us all killed.  I told her our two younger sisters, Cassie and Aiyanna could not know what we witnessed, not until they were old enough to handle it.  She reluctantly understood.  We returned to our sisters and continued our journey to our new home.  Confiding in one another is how Victoria and I survived that tragedy.  Because of this, we are very close.

After ten years of going undiscovered in the mountains, I thought I had fulfilled my promise to my parents.  I thought my sisters were safe, but we have been found.  Cherape’s men discovered our sanctuary.  After a fierce battle, they captured and imprisoned us.  My sisters and I worked together to escape our imprisonment.  Once we escaped, we saw how are people are living now.  We knew we could not return to the mountains.  Our people need us now more than ever.  Now, we live among our people.  Some of our people recognize us, but most of them do not.  We have made new friends who have generously opened their homes to us, Jason Conner, Vitalia Sonomi, and her 5-year-old son, Nicholas.  Vitalia and Nicky recognized us immediately.  Jason believes we are human refugees.  Victoria and I have been staying with Vitalia and Nicky.  Cassie and Aiyanna have been staying with Jason.

Ah, Jason.  I fell in love with him the moment I met him.  As stressful as this whole situation is —knowing my family is under constant threat yet again; knowing my people do not recognize me and seem to despise me for some strange reason— Jason makes everything better.  I feel an immense joy around him that I haven’t felt since mom and dad died.  He makes me feel alive, but he hides me.  He never wants me to hold his hand when people are watching.  He doesn’t even let me call him “Babe” in public.  I don’t understand the condemning looks we get when I break these rules.  Most of all, I don’t understand why Jason doesn’t see in him what I do: a kind, loving soul.  He doesn’t seem to like who he is, and it breaks my heart.  All I want is for the people I love to be safe and happy.  I get frustrated because this is not so, but my sister keeps my hopes up.  I want peace to come at no price.  Victoria reminds me that peace will come with change, and change will come with revolution.

 Victoria Vioras:9707_502834059761312_28693814_n

I am the eldest daughter of King Ceron and Queen Evita Vioras.  As all members of the royal family are, I am a shape-shifter.  I morph back and forth between my golden eagle form and my human form.  I am the only living healer in my family.  This trait of mine allows me to feel the physical and emotional pain of anyone I touch, and heal their physical wounds instantly.  While this allows me to understand my friends, my enemy, and my people, the limitations of this gift frustrate me.  I am able to instantly heal the physical wounds of those I love and those I do not know, but emotional wounds, I cannot heal, at least not instantly.

There is a great deal of pain around me.  My people seem to have forgotten who they are.  They seem to have forgotten who my family is.  They seem to have forgotten the values we stand for and how deeply we love them all.  I try to tell them, but they do not recognize me.  If they listen to their heart, their heart will tell them who I am.  But they are listening to someone else now: Cherape.

In dreams, when I speak to my father of my frustrations, he tells me to keep my faith in our people.  He assures me they will learn.  I believe this, and so I continue to teach my people.

 Cassie Vioras:

Cherape has a special talent for triggering my mountain-lion-temper.  He has turned our people against us.  I thought it was bad enough that he brutally murdered both my parents, but now he’s telling our people what we want from them.  He tells our people we want them to turn against each other.  Those of our people who don’t recognize us turn against us.  After a day of being yelled at, insulted, and spit on, I was literally thrown out of a shop all because my dress was a little low-cut.  The people here don’t know I’m royalty.  Just because I’m loose, they think they can treat me like dirt.  They think they can treat my brother like dirt too, and don’t get me started on that.  I can understand people attacking me ‘cause I say what I think and what I think isn’t always nice.  But my brother; my brother’s a nice, caring, wonderful person.  He’s only been with one guy who he’s been in love with from the start, which is how people say I should be living, but look how much good being dedicated to one guy has done for my brother.  I’ve slept with quite a few men, but I wasn’t using any of them.  Each of these guys just seems to think that my family’s abandoned them and that we don’t love them, and I want them to know that we do love them but I’m not so good with words…  I actually fell for one them, Matthew.  Ironically, he’s one of Cherape’s guards, but he can’t stand Cherape any more than I can.  Since I’ve started dating Matthew, I’ve been faithful to him.  I don’t get to see him very often, but when I do he makes me feel happy in a way I’ve never been happy before.  He’s as sick of the pain and suffering in this place as I am.  We’re going to take this kingdom by storm.

 Aiyanna Vioras:

I am the youngest daughter of Ceron and Evita Vioras.  I was very young when they were murdered.  My siblings remember the event more vividly than I do.  I remember that I loved my parents.  I still do and always will.  I remember they taught us be respectful and to live in peace and joy.

My siblings and I have returned to our kingdom.  We returned in an unpleasant way, but now that we are here, we are making the best of it.  Our kingdom has flaws now.  Our people lash out at times, but I know they are just scared, and in time they will find love to be more fulfilling than fear.  Many of them appear to despise me for some reason.  One woman told me the color of my skin makes me an untrustworthy person.  You see, my form other than my human form is that of an artic fox.  As an artic fox, in both my human and animal forms, I am light in the winter and autumn, and I am dark in the summer and spring.  As strange as my people behave at times, I see the beauty in each of them.  I have grown particularly fond of the young son of a dear friend of mine, Nicky.  I do what I can to keep a smile on that precious young face.  The children of my kingdom know I am royalty.  I feel they are too.  The spark of light that shines through me, shines through them brighter than any adult I have ever met.  With time and patience, I know this light will shine through all my people.

Thank you Samira!

O seara frumoasa!

Cele treisprezece motive – Jay Asher

Cele-13-motive1Oare sunt singura pe care nu a impresionat-o aceasta carte?

M-am apucat duminica de ea si am terminat-o in aproximativ 2 ore si jumatate, dar m-a lasat rece. Cu toate ca abordeaza un subiect sensibil, si anume moartea, sinuciderea, cartea asta efectiv nu m-a intristat. Mai mult m-a enervat si frustrat.  Poate aveam eu asteptari prea mari de la ea: cred ca trei sferturi (sau aproape toate) dintre recenziile citite sunt pozitive sau o ridica in slavi. Sa fim seriosi.

Autoarea zici ca avea 14 ani cand a scris-o. Pe langa limbajul absolut pueril, motivele sinuciderii sunt si mai absurde. Sa va fac un mic rezumat al cartii: Hannah – o adolescenta tipica, a decis ca viata ei nu mai este importanta si nu mai merita traita. A ales astfel sa se sinucida cu un pumn de pastile si sa lase in urma un set de 13 casete cu motivele sale stupide,  care aveau sa circule pe la cei 13 „inculpati”. Da, fiecare caseta ii este adresa cate unui prieten mai mult sau mai putin apropiat, care au determinat-o prin faptele lor sa ia aceasta decizie.

Printre motivele enumerate de Hannah se afla si urmatoarele:

– in timpul unui ore, a fost facuta o lista cu Bunaciunile/Nebunaciunile din clasa respectiva de elevi. Ea a fost trecuta pe aceasta lista cu „cel mai bun fund din clasa a IX-a” (nu este exprimarea mea, ci a autorului). Ca urmarea a acestei liste ea a fost apucata de fund intr-un magazin de unul dintre colegi. Iar vinovatul este cel care a intocmit lista. Na motiv!!

– Mai punem unul si mai stupid: s-a sarutat prima oara cu baiatul pe care il placea, iar apoi au urmat zvonuri in liceu ca acesta i-ar fi pipait si sanii /:)

– SAU: aproape in fiecare noapte era urmarita si fotografiata in dormitor  de catre colegul care se ocupa cu pozele 13rwpentru anuarul clasei. Asta m-a amuzat cel mai tare cred :))

Intr-un final Hannah a inceput sa nu mai suporte toate aceste zvonuri si farse, si s-a gandit ca ar fi mai bine sa isi ia zilele in loc sa lupte sau sa ignore asa-zisele rautati. Problema este ca au existat persoane care au incercat sa o ajute sau sa se apropie de ea, dar bineinteles ca Hannah nu accepta nimic. Unde e logica?? Zici ca nimeni nu te accepta si are ceva cu tine, iar cand cineva e dispus sa iti fie alaturi, tu il respingi. 😐

NU AJUNGI sa iti pui capat zilelor din cauza unor  motive banale. Trebuie sa ai o problema mintala grava, sau sa suferi de depresie puternica si accentuata pentru a ajunge sa te sinucizi cu una cu doua. Ori, Hannah nu avea nici unele dintre aceste probleme. Cum poate aceasta autoare sa scrie o carte  in care o adolescenta ajunge sa se sinucida nu din cauza unui motiv, si din cauza a 13 MOTIVE. Serios????!!!!! Asta ar insemna ca daca cineva ne vorbeste urat sau ne ia peste picior, nu mai merita sa traim. Ar trebui sa ne inregistram, sau eventual sa scriem cateva scrisori, sa ii acuzam pe toti cei ce ne inconjoara, si sa punem punct la orice.

Poate sunt eu prea insensibila. Dar uite ca am trecut si eu de adolescenta si nu am fost nevoita sa ma sinucid. Sunt de parere ca aceasta carte promoveaza valori nocive, care afecteaza (din cate observ) o treime din cititori.

Daca mai continui sa scriu aceasta recenzie ma apuca dracii si mai tare :)) Voi incheia aici si sper ca nu am suparat pe nimeni :-s

Ii voi da nota 2/5 cu indulgenta!

Elixirul Vietii – Kenneth Oppel

elixirul-vietii.3dElixirul vietii este acel gen de carte care te surprinde placut si iti intrece toate asteptarile. Crezand ca este o carte usurica, fara prea multe complicatii sau emotii, am luat-o la plaja pentru a ma mai destinde si a alunga plictiseala. Ce am gasit insa in ea m-a entuziasmat asa tare incat nu am plecat de pe plaja pana nu am terminat-o.

Elixirul Vietii este primul volum din seria Ucenicia lui Viktor Frankestein, al 2-lea volum, si ultimul cred, fiind lansat in 2012 in America (Such Wicked Intent). Nu stiu daca va fi sau nu publicat si la noi; cert este ca mi-l voi descarca pe kindle si va voi apuca de el cat mai curand. Sper sa nu mai scoata si un al 3-lea volum – m-ar termina asteptarea.

Povestea PARE initial simpla: avem familia Frankenstein – foarte prospera si bogata, locuind intr-un „castel” plin de mister. Avem cadrul ideal: undeva in apropiere de Geneva. Si protagonistii: 2 frati gemeni: Viktor si Konrad Frankestein si verisoara acestora  – Elizabeth. Explorand castelul si pasajele secrete, acestia descopera o biblioteca „intunecata” in care zaceau carti vechi de mii de ani, scrise in limbi necunosctute lor si cu desene ciudate. Intr-un final, cei trei copii au descifrat ca aceste carti apartin de domeniul alchimiei, vrajitoriei si altor arii interzise. Odata cu descoperirea acestei biblioteci si imbolnavirea subita a lui Konrad, Viktor si Elizabeth vor incepe lupta (pe viata si pe moarte) pentru salvarea lui  Konrad. Si de aici porneste aventura si totul o ia razna.

Actiunea este prezentata din punctul de vedere a lui Viktor. A fost foarte palpitant sa iau parte la gandurile acestuia, la batalia ce se duce in interiorul sau: Viktor este atras de alchimie si stiinta, cu toate ca este interzisa. Intr-un fel, isi doreste sa-si asculte tatal si sa se supuna regulilor acestuia, insa tentatia pentru experimente si crearea Elixirului Vietii este mult mai mare. Autorul a creat o carte unde primeaza legaturile de familie si sascrificiul, dar unde, cele mai intunecate ganduri pot duce la degradarea acestora.

Are cateva scene care m-au infiorat, iar sfarsitul este foarte tulburator, frustrant si imprevizibil. Autorul te lasa sa crezi un anumit lucru pana la ultima pagina. Cand ti-ai pus gandurile in ordine, si astepti sa citeti si ultimele randuri pentru a inchide cartea, totul se schimba la 360 de grade. Asta a fost reactia mea cand am citit finalul:

images

L-am iubit si l-am urat pe Viktor in acelasi timp, l-am indragit pe Konrad chiar daca a fost destul de moale in anumite situatii si nu a dat totul pentru a-si atinge telul. Un personaj misterios si dubios a fost tatal celor doi copii. Acesta ascude multe secrete pe care abia astept sa le descopar in volumul 2.

In concluzie, cartea asta are din toate cate putin: suspans, mister, scene horror, o mica poveste de dragoste, dialoguri amuzante, personaje foarte bine construite cu personalitati distincte si puternice. O recomand calduros!

Festinul Ciorilor – George R.R. Martin

375551Am reusit IN SFARSIT sa termin acest volum. M-am chinuit foarte mult la el. Parca nu aveam energia necesara sa il dau gata.

Munca lui George Martin  pentru crearea acestei parti a fost colosala. A avut atat de multe personaje si povesti de imbinat, incat s-a hotarat sa imparta actiunea in doua parti. Prin urmare, acest volum se concentreaza pe evenimentele din Debarcaderul Regelui si imprejurimi, axandu-se pe personaje ca Cersei, Jaime, Brienne, Sansa, Arya; evolutia celorlalti  protagonisti si aventurile de la Zid si Dincolo de el sau din Orasele Libere fiind expuse in Dansul Dragonilor. Astfel, actiunile celor doua volume se petrec in acelasi timp, ajungand la un moment dat sa se impleteasca.

Dupa anihilarea unui personaj cu o influenta remarcabila asupra celorlati (nu vreau sa dau spoiler, nu stiu daca a terminat toata lumea Iuresul Sabiilor), prima jumatate mi s-a parut un pic plictisitoare, parca a lungit-o prea mult focalizandu-se pe acest incident. Inteleg ca avea o importanta semnificativa dar a fost preeaaaa mult. A doua jumatate insa a fost mai interesanta. Am avut parte de episoade enevante si frustrante, comploturi si conspiratii.

M-a surprins faptul ca Martin a fost mai pasnic  si nu s-a mai razbunat asa brutal pe personaje decapintandu-le sau ucigandu-le prin cele mai sadice metode. Cred ca era si cazul dupa crimele perverse si atroce din Iuresul Sabiilor. Dar, din cate am citit in Dansul Dragonilor, omul asta efectiv NU SE POATE ABTINE. Tare imi e ca pana la sfarsitul volumului urmator vor fi nimicite toate personajele :))

a9fede2a76908c5042357a7b8b81b623Sa revin acum la Festinul Ciorilor. Cersei Lannister, dupa intamplarile marcate la care a luat parte, este determinata sa guverneze Debarcaderul Regelui ca Regina Regenta si sa ii nimiceasca pe toti cei care ii stau in cale. Planurile sale vor fi date peste cap insa ce cei din „clanul” Tyrell. Stannis Baratheon isi continua ascensiunea si comploteaza impotriva Lannisterilor. Abia astept sa citesc mai multe in Dansul Dragonilor. Mi-a lipsit mult Jon Snow, care de asemenea avanseaza in „rang”. A inceput sa imi placa mai mult de Brienne, insa capitolele ei erau un pic plictisitoare. Abia spre sfarsit au inceput sa devina mai interesante si chiar le-am citit cu sufletul la gura. Am indragit devotamentul de care da dovada si sacrificiile pe care le face: prima oara fata de Renly, iar mai apoi fata de Catelyn. Jaime, oh da, Jaime. Il inteleg din ce in ce mai bine, iar pasajele dedicate lui devin tot mai emotionante si  tulburatoare. Damn you Jaime. Parca imi e mila de el si de mana lui lipsa. Capitolele dedicatei Aryei le-am iubit cel mai mult. Imi place asa de mult de ea incat as lua-o acasa :))) In aceste capitole si-a dovedit ageritatea, inteligenta si capacitatile de adaptare. In continuare isi repeta lista cu cei pe care isi doreste sa-i ucida pentru a face dreptate, si sunt convinsa ca pana la final isi va indeplini telul.   Mi-a lipsit foarte Tyron. Ohh…dar in Dansul Dragonilor voi avea din plin parte de el. Unii fani pot fi dezamagiti ca nu apare nici Daenerys si ai sai dragoni, dar intr-un fel toate actiunea a fost mult mai bine organizata in aceasta modalitate: impartind personajele in doua carti diferite.

Sunt de parere ca George R.R. Martin, alaturi de Tolkien si J.K.Rowling au facut (si fac in continuare) o treaba excelenta in categoria fantasy-ului. Opera lui George este atat de bine scrisa incat ii gasesti cu greu puncte slabe. Are o actiune foarte complexa si foarte bine pusa la punct, cu multe detalii si elemente istorice, personaje superb construite, ce evolueaza pe parcursul actiunii, si bineinteles este presarata cu elemente fantastice si mistere. Din punctul meu de vedere are toate elementele pe care le-ai dori intr-o carte: actiune, violenta, episoade emotionante, fraze amuzante si situatii frustrante. Are toate componentele necesare pentru a te face sa pierzi nopti citind-o. As putea face o pledoarie in acest sens :)) Dragilor, va sfatuiesc  SA CITITI saga Cantec de Gheata si Foc. NU veti regreta orele scurse in fata ei. Va provoc (bineinteles pe cei care nu v-ati apucat inca de ea)!!!!!351c467242ed8a9a0fb8158e211f3ca0

Nota: 5/5

PS: Mai am un pic si termin setul de semne de carte cu HARRY POTTER si voi da startul unui concurs. Ma voi chinui apoi sa fac si un set cu Game of Thrones (voi avea muuult de munca la ele). Urmeaza in curand si recenziile celorlalte carti citite in maraton!
