My Own Crystal Ball: Virtual Launch Party for Jessica Therrien's Uprising

Today is the Virtual Launch party for Jessica Therrien's newest book, Uprising

In addition to sharing information about her new release, participants could write a post about their favorite supernatural power.

My thoughts...

All supernatural powers have their own draw. After all, who wouldn't want to be invisible or fly or heal quickly or run fast? So many choices. 

Thanks to my upcoming cross-country move, there is only one supernatural power I would wish for right now... the ability to see into the future. I just want to know my kids will be okay and everything will work out. A crystal ball, if you will.

But, I'd want the extra power of controlling what I see and how far into the future I had to go. I don't want to know the date of my death (or anyone else's)... just what I want to know. How's that for a request!

What supernatural power would you wish for?


Before I share more about Uprising, I wanted to mention my 5-star review for Oppression. Check it out. I'm so excited to read book two!

And now the details about Uprising...

Title: Uprising (Children of the Gods #2)
Publisher: ZOVA Books
Release Date: May 28, 2013
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Pages: 384


Jessica Therrien follows up her bestselling novel OPPRESSION with UPRISING, the second book in the Children of the Gods series.

OPPRESSION, translated and sold around the world, was one of the best selling YA novels of 2012. UPRISING continues the story of Elyse, William and the Descendants.

Elyse has been in hiding for most of her life. Only now she’s hiding with William, and she knows who she’s hiding from. The Council wants a child Elyse and William have yet to conceive, a child who will be the next oracle, and who will provide the final piece to a plan Christoph has been organizing for years. Charged with leading the rebellion against Christoph and his Council, Elyse feels well out of her depth. But she has good friends and strong allies who are willing to fight with her to the end, regardless of how far they have to go, and how many lives will be lost in the process. They have one goal: to live freely and openly with the rest of humanity, out from under The Council’s oppressive rule. The stakes could not be higher for Elyse and the Descendants longing for freedom. They'll have to learn to fight if they want to stand up against The Council, and to find allies in a world ruled by their enemies. The hardest part of waging a war is knowing who to trust. Elyse knows their uprising will change the world. She doesn’t realize it will change her, too.

Looks like an interesting series! Since you loved the first so much, I may actually pick it up because I assume it's well edited. :) WRITE ON!
