The Anastasia Series Book Tour & Giveaway

Destria Waves
Anastasia Series Book 1
by Lily Raine
Genre: YA Paranormal Fantasy
Anastasia has always been different, and not just because she knows over fifteen languages and prefers to be alone. After she was attacked while visiting family in Russia over seven years ago, Ana has been able to heal rapidly amongst other things. Unable to accept her own immortality, despite increasing proof, she goes away to Joya Del Mar Arts Academy with her two cousins, Jo and Mason. Instead of worrying about recitals and dance steps, Ana discovers a secret world of demons, mermaids and angels. Their only connection however, seems to be an increasing need to find her so that the demons can force Ana to bring back their master.
After transforming a bear into a human boy, Ana can no longer hide her abilities and struggles with the idea that she is not human, although she does not know what she is. When a mysterious man in a mask continues to stalk Ana with the intention of getting her to eat a blue flower, Ana gets the sinking suspicion that the man in the mask is the same young man who destroyed her life seven years prior. When Ana discovers a secret lair hidden beneath the waves where the demons are regrouping, Ana realizes she has a terrible choice to make. Sacrifice her life and the life of the mermaids who fuel the underwater power source, or escape and allow the demons free reign to destroy the human world. But if Ana chooses to accept her immortality, then the life of her cousins and boyfriend, Daniel, will forever be compromised.
The Demon King’s Assassin
Anastasia Series Book 2
After destroying the Demon King’s lair, Anastasia Sokolov believes her and her cousin’s lives are finally safe. Unfortunately, when a King who practices necromancy is determined, more than mermaids are needed to destroy the demon clan.
Anastasia’s cousin Jo, has warned her to keep away from their new accountant, dashing and handsome, Arkin. Arkin is infatuated with Anastasia, but it isn’t until he asks for her help she comes to realize why. In a desperate attempt to become immortal, Arkin had joined the demonic, Destria Organization. But when a deadly assassin learns of his plans to escape, Arkin turns to the only one who can save him.
With the King’s ability to change bodies each time he dies, there is no way of telling friends from enemies apart. As the assassin threatens to destroy any hope of peace, Anastasia learns just how inhuman her friends and boyfriend really are.
A dagger from the other world, creatures who are neither human nor animal, and a web comic detailing future events are all Anastasia can rely on. And when the assassin’s interests turn to her beloved cousin, Mason, where is the line between who should live and who should die?

“Destria Waves”
Excerpt
Slowly, he perched the violin on his shoulder and raised his bow. There was a wave of whispers going around the room, but that all stopped when he began to play. The piece was slow,
but didn’t lack depth. I found my head swimming with emotion as the music took over my mind.
I lost sight of his fingers moving and the crescendo of sounds buckled down over my ears until every note reverberated twice fold.
Then I smelled the flowers. Why now? Mason was still on stage, his arm perfectly bent, his dark Japanese hair framed around his face. But the pale haired woman with the beautiful
wings stood beside him, her lithe fingers inches from his strands of hair. Holding my breath, I
tried to move forward to push her away from him, but she only chuckled.
In my head, her words were like air. “I would not harm your shikisha. You would not manage without.”
Then there was applause so loud my ears were deaf to everything else. I closed my eyes
and when I looked up, she was gone. Finding my feeling in my hands, I clapped until my skin felt raw.
There were many more auditions before mine. Dance solos that were both lively and
solemn, violin, flute, and piano pieces. And drama monologues of all kinds. After four hours, it
was my turn, and with weary legs from sitting for so long, I trudged up the stairs.
It was courteous to stay after you’d auditioned, so there were still a lot of students
remaining in the hot auditorium. I could only hope they would turn the air on for the actual
concert.
Behind the stage was a darkened narrow space with stairs leading down to where I
assumed the dressing rooms were. The layout seemed common enough for a large stage.
In a daze, I brushed against a guy standing near the curtain. I muttered an apology, but I
could feel his eyes on me as I made my way to the end of the line.
My hand was warm where I’d grazed his arm, but when I tried to look at him, I saw he
was already on stage. He was tall, so I could see he had light brown hair tinged with golden
streaks. He kept his back to me as he crossed over to the piano and clumsily sat down. He looked
more nervous than Nora had.
I’d always thought Mason was the best teenage musician I’d ever heard. But the sounds
that came from the brunette’s fingers drove me into a whole new state of appreciation.
If they did a duet, they would be able to bring people to tears.

Eric starts digging, and using his paranormal mind-reading skills, he soon discovers that Wilson Kingman, the presidential candidate behind the burglary, has some supernatural skills of his own. With one sweep of his mesmerizing gaze, he’s able to secure the fanatical devotion of the thousands who attend his rallies–including the very people investigating him.

The asylum’s director has some personality issues of his own and is doing more than just treating patients. Now that Eric is one of them, his mind may be headed for a fate worse than death.

Yesterday’s Thief
Eric Beckman Mysteries Book 1
Private detective Eric Beckman can read minds.
Although he reads only the conscious thoughts of the people he interviews, it usually gives him enough of an edge to overcome his inexperience as a PI. But mind reading is hell on relationships. Trusting comes hard when you know what people are really thinking.
The case of his life lands in his lap when a beautiful woman materializes during a televised baseball game. She floats in midair, then drops to the ground, comatose.
Beckman is at her bedside when she wakes up. From the moment she opens her eyes, she has him under her spell. He vows to figure out where—or when—she came from, even if it kills him.
The stakes increase when she disappears without a trace. Worse, she holds the key to a worldwide energy catastrophe. If Beckman can’t find her and unlock her secrets, economies will collapse, and the world will spiral down into chaos.

Al Macy writes because he has stories to tell. In school he was the class clown and always the first volunteer for show and tell. His teachers would say “Al has a lot of imagination.” Then they’d roll their eyes.
But he put his storytelling on the back burner until he retired and wrote a blog about his efforts to improve his piano sight-reading. That’s when his love of storytelling burbled up to the surface, along with quirky words like “burble.”
He had even more fun writing his second book, Drive, Ride, Repeat, but was bummed by non-fiction’s need to stick to “the truth” (yucko). From then on it was fiction all the way, with a good dose of his science background burbling to the surface.
Macy’s top priority is compelling storylines with satisfying plot twists, but he never neglects character development. No, wait … his top priority is quirkiness, then compelling storylines, then character development. No, wait …

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Donna Grant has been praised for her “totally addictive” and “unique and sensual” stories. Her latest acclaimed series, Dark Kings, features a thrilling combination of dragons, Fae, and immortal Highlanders who are dark, dangerous, and irresistible. She lives with her two children and an assortment of animals in Texas.

They had taken out many Coven witches. But not enough. Not nearly enough.
The Coven sought out witches, giving them the option to join their ranks or die. Helena had
chosen death when the Hunter appeared in the Witch’s Grove and freed her.
Many, many other witches had also preferred death over joining the Coven. But the vast
majority joined the Coven because they didn’t want to die.
While Helena wanted to fight the Coven, she knew she couldn’t do it by herself. And no witch
would join her, for they mistrusted as deeply as she did, fearing that it was a ploy by the Coven
to get them out of hiding.
That left Helena only two options. Continue on her own.
Or find the Hunters.
She dropped her forehead to her knees. Her eyes closed as she let her memories take her back
to happier times. Of a time when life had been simpler, a time when she hadn’t feared anything
or anyone.
The jingle of a bridle snapped her head up. She blinked, only vaguely realizing that while she
had been deep in her memories, she had fallen asleep. She had no idea how long she slept. It
was still light out, but the heavy clouds and thick trees made it difficult to tell where the sun
was in the sky.
She leaned back against the trunk of the tree and listened for another sound. For endless
moments, there was nothing. Just the silence of a winter wood. She was beginning to think
she’d imagined the jangle when she heard a horse blow out a breath.
Cautiously, Helena peered around the tree and saw two men setting up camp about a hundred
yards from her. She sighed in frustration and turned away. Now, she’d have to hear them
talking all night.
She closed her eyes again and tried to sleep, but despite her eyes hurting from lack of rest, she
couldn’t. It wasn’t long before the crackle of a fire reached her. Helena was able to ignore the
thought of the warmth right until she smelled something cooking.
Her mouth watered, and her stomach grumbled just thinking about food. The last thing she had
eaten was a piece of stale bread she’d stolen the night before. The fact that she could solve her
problems with magic but didn’t dare for fear of alerting the Coven made it even more difficult
to bear.
The hours stretched by as the sun set and darkness fell over the land like a thick blanket. And
the snow continued to fall. The men laughed and talked and ate as if they didn’t have a care in
the world.

Helena dozed, but every little sound the men made woke her. She was attempting to find a
more comfortable position when a woman’s voice reached her. She stilled, trying to hear the
conversation.
When she couldn’t stand it any longer, Helena leaned around the tree to take a look. Her blood
went cold when she saw the yellow-orange magic moving from the witch’s palm towards the
men.
One lay unmoving, but the other was handing over all his possessions while gazing at the witch
as if she were an angel come down from Heaven.
There was no way Helena could sit there and allow the witch to get away with such behavior. It
didn’t matter if the woman was part of the Coven or not. Just because she had magic did not
mean she could use it in such a fashion.
Helena rose and walked around the tree. As she did, she felt the rush of her magic run through
her body. Her strides were long, her gaze locked on the witch.
As soon as Helena was close enough, she let the purple coils of her magic fly from one palm.
Before they could strike, the witch leaned out of the way. The woman forgot the men as she
shifted her attention to Helena.
“Do you have any idea who I am?” the witch demanded.
Helena lowered the hood of her cloak. “Not a whit.”
“I’m part of the Coven. You will bow before me. Now.”
There was a smile on Helena’s face as she said, “Make me.”
The witch peeled back her lips. The yellow-orange magic flew straight at Helena. With a wave of
her hand, Helena blocked one blast, but the other slashed her across her upper left arm.
Helena ignored the pain as she lunged over one of the men and sent more coils of power
toward the witch. And, once more, they were evaded.
When Helena was struck once again with the magic, she clenched her teeth and focused
everything she had on the witch. This time, when her blast went for the woman, it sank into the
witch’s skin. She began to thrash and scream as she was burned from the inside out.
The witch turned to ash before she hit the ground. Helena then faced the men to find both of
them watching her with fear in their eyes. She grabbed what remained of their meal and
stalked off.
