Today’s spotlight is on Anyta Sunday’s Young Adult Paranormal Romance series, Guardians of the Angels. The first two books are available, and you can read on to learn more about and read an excerpt from each book. In addition, the author explains to readers her writing process, which I always find fascinating since every writer has an individual method for crafting a story.

It could be worse for Sylva Lark. She could be dead. A coma was nothing to that. Or her family moving across country for the treatment, leaving her with a big blue mark on her back.
She can handle it.
Except the mark glows and tingles, especially whenever transition helper Atticus Plot (Attic) is close by. She suspects he’s hiding something, and when she stumbles across a torn body bearing the same spiral marking as her own, that suspicion is confirmed.
After a few shaves with death, the truth finally comes out and the battles begin.
But not all her fights are external; her biggest one is the decision she has to make between doing the right thing for the world and giving up her beloved family for good.
I had the opportunity to read Veined over a year ago, and I really enjoyed the fantastical Guardian world the author has created. The plot kept me engaged from beginning to end, and I especially liked the character personalities of Sylvia and Atticus. Their relationship blossoms as Sylvia becomes immersed a a new, unfamiliar world she never knew existed. My favorite part of the book is the ending, which was both surprising and angsty. Now that the second book, Lethed, has been published, I’m looking forward to picking up the story to find out what’s next for our heroine. After seeing the book cover for Lethed, I have a feeling Sylvia will have a harrowing journey ahead. (Source: purchased)
