~The Edge of Darkness by Melissa Andrea Blog Tour~
I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.
I am the author of Flutter, The Discover Series! Reading has always been a passion for me, and writing as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. The only thing I do better than writing you ask? Making beautiful girls. My daughter’s will always be my greatest accomplishment.
I was born in Denver, Colorado–but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by.
4 things you should know about me: I’m very girly, but I can get down and dirty with the best of them. I adore the color pink and things that sparkle (including vampires), I am a firm believer that chocolate cures ALL and I like even numbers (hence 4 things about me, not 5) Okay, maybe I cheated a little with my list, shhhh.
The Edge of Darkness Blurb
After a tragic accident, Araya Noelle is left with a constant reminder that nothing is forever.
She is forced to give up her chance to be the youngest dancer accepted into Julliard & taking over their high society school by a graceful storm of determination is no longer an option. Instead of dwelling over her loss, she accepts the new future she’s been dealt. In a world as black as hers, there's no room for bitterness, no time for regret. Sheltered from the outside world, Araya has become suffocated by a life she has no control over. Until Ryland Dare comes crashing into her life. You don’t know true darkness until you've felt light…
Like a firecracker, showering her with colorful sparks of freedom, Ryland quickly sweeps Araya away from her grey existence. For the first time since the accident, living in darkness is no longer something Araya wants to do willingly. Unleashed by the shadows of her reminder, being with Ryland, Araya touches light. Together they will learn what it’s like to feel alive for the first time.
At the edge of darkness, a ray of light, will dare them both to HOPE.
DARE them to LOVE
DARE them to LIVE
Thanks goodness there will be a book 2 because right now I want to cry and scream that I need more! The Edge of Darkness is not your happy ever after kind of story. There are many ups and downs that leave you speechless. An a few twists I swear you won’t see coming.
Araya lives in a dark world with her aunt and uncle, who are nothing short of cruel. Just surviving is all Araya is trying to do until Ryland walks in to her life. He brings light to her darken world and makes her believe she can live again.
Ryland is just trying to survive in his parents’ home until he can escape into the real world. However, he won’t leave without his baby sister, Careless. Ryland won’t feed her to the sharks and let her turn out like their parents. For now all Ryland wants is no strings attached relationships until he meets Araya.
Careless is has closed off herself to everyone. She won’t give them the chance to hurt her. A new friendship maybe just what makes Careless come out of her shell. But it may also prove to be all of their undoing.
