DARK REVELATION by S.E. Myers is a captivating book with a knock-out storyline.
"Ryleigh Simmons just turned seventeen.
After the death of her parents, Ryleigh is introduced to her beautiful Aunt Vera and thrust into a family she never knew existed.
Discovering she is a descendant of the Fae, she must embark on a journey to escape the clutches of her tyrannical Uncle Finar. Finar wants nothing more than to consume Ryleigh and those like her to become the most powerful Fae in existence.
Ryleigh is the only one who can stop him."
I am an author. It's what I do. It's what I want to do. It's not the only thing that I do, but, it's what I want to be when I grow up.
Stephanie was born in San Antonio, Texas and spent most of her youth in Germany. She joined the military and traveled the world...somewhat. She lived in Japan, spent time in India, and currently resides in Sacramento, California.
She is surrounded by her close friends, family, and animals. She lives with her oldest daughter (Illeana), youngest daughter (Kathryn), Punky & Snoopy (their Chorky's), and their cat (Miss Kitty). She misses her son, Gavin, terribly. He currently lives in Georgia.
Stephanie has written for many years. She started writing songs at the age of ten. Her writing progressed into short stories, poetry, screenplays, and more recently, her novel Dark Revelation.
While Dark Revelation is of the YA genre, her other WIP's (Works in Progress) are more adult in nature - and no - not that kind of adult.
Stick around, read her blog, follow her on twitter and most of all -- read her books!
She is currently working on the second book in the Dark Revelation series.
This book had me hooked in the first chapter, wondering just what was so special about Ryleigh. As it turned out there was no way on earth I could have guessed how complicated things were for her. As her story unfolds, surprising twists and turns take the reader through a maze of exciting discoveries about the secret world of Ryleigh's family. Both the good side and the bad side of the family. The details of Ryleigh's powers and how she learns to control them were vividly described. Plenty of suspense and some very original characters make this a fun book to read. I was especially taken with the author's take on the Fae , family histories, and magical energies of these characters. It's vastly different, and I think more compelling, than much of the paranormal thrillers I have read before. I look forward to the next book in this series. I was thoroughly entertained by this one. The story is fast paced, original and suspenseful. I don't often read this genre, but after reading this I may sample more.
