Description:



Release Date: August 31st, 2015
When Kat was forced to leave the only home she had ever known due to her brother's secrets, she wasn't prepared for what was waiting for her in Tennessee or the choices it would force her to make.
Kat instantly knew she didn't like Blake Reagan. He was cocky, stubborn, and infuriating. What Kat didn't understand was why she couldn't stop thinking about him or the way he made her feel.
The last thing Blake expected was for Kat Archer to storm into his world and turn it upside down. He thought he had her pegged from the beginning, but she destroyed everything he thought he knew. Blake was willing to fight to push his way into Kat's heart, but she put up a wall at every turn as she clung to her past.
If she stayed, she'd risk the only family she had left. If she left, she'd lose Blake and every piece of her heart that he'd managed to steal.

The Warriors of the Rainbow Prophecy



The Warriors of the Rainbow



One day... there would come a time, when the earth being ravaged and polluted, the forests being destroyed, the birds would fall from the air, the waters would be blackened, the fish being poisoned in the streams, and the trees would no longer be, mankind as we would know it would all but cease to exist

 
This is how the ‘Rainbow prophecy’ begins, as retold by a woman of the Cree Indian nation of America over a century ago.

The Cree are one of the largest groups of the First Nations Native Americans in North America. There are over 135 bands of Cree living in Canada, with a total population of approximately 200,000 today.

The Rainbow prophecy, as it has come to be known, refers to the keepers of the legends, rituals, and other myths that will be needed when the time comes to restore the health on Earth. It is believed that these legendary beings will return on a day of awakening, when all people will unite and create a new world of justice, peace and freedom, and they will be named the ‘Warriors of the Rainbow’. They will reteach the values and the knowledge that has been lost in time, demonstrating how to have wisdom and extra-perception, and how unity, harmony and love is the only way forward.

The rainbow reference relates to the different colours of the original people:


At the beginning of this cycle of time, long ago, the Great Spirit came down and He made an appearance and He gathered the peoples of this earth together, they say on an island which is now beneath the water, and He said to the human beings, "I'm going to send you to four directions and over time I'm going to change you to four colours, but I'm going to give you some teachings and you will call these the Original Teachings and when you come back together with each other you will share these so that you can live and have peace on earth, and a great civilization will come about.
Prophecy as told by Lee Brown of the Salish Tribe at the 1986 Continental Indigenous Council, Alaska.

A particularly interesting part of the prophecy relates to the choosing of leaders. According to the story, a leader will not be the one that talks the loudest, boasts of successes, or has the support of the elite. Leaders will be those whose actions speak the loudest, the ones that have demonstrated wisdom and courage and have proven that they work for the benefit of all. Isn’t this how things should be?

The Rainbow has always held special significance among the different Native American Indian Nations. It is connected to the Spirit (Supreme God/Creator) in all things. Apart from the Cree prophecy there are many prophecies and stories from the Hopi, the Zuni and the Cherokee related to the rainbow warriors.


There will come a day when people of all races, colors, and creeds will put aside their differences. They will come together in love, joining hands in unification, to heal the Earth and all Her children. They will move over the Earth like a great Whirling Rainbow, bringing peace, understanding and healing everywhere they go. Many creatures thought to be extinct or mythical will resurface at this time; the great trees that perished will return almost overnight. All living things will flourish, drawing sustenance from the breast of our Mother, the Earth.


The great spiritual Teachers who walked the Earth and taught the basics of the truths of the Whirling Rainbow Prophecy will return and walk amongst us once more, sharing their power and understanding with all. We will learn how to see and hear in a sacred manner. Men and women will be equals in the way Creator intended them to be; all children will be safe anywhere they want to go. Elders will be respected and valued for their contributions to life. Their wisdom will be sought out. The whole Human race will be called The People and there will be no more war, sickness or hunger forever.
Navajo-Hopi Prophecy of the Whirling Rainbow
rainbowmanpetro

In the time of the Seventh Fire, a New People would emerge. They would retrace their steps to find the wisdom that was left by the side of the trail long ago. Their steps would take them to the elders, who they would ask to guide them on their journey. If the New People remain strong in their quest, the sacred drum will again sound its voice. There will be an awakening of the people, and the sacred fire will again be lit. At this time, the light-skinned race will be given a choice between two roads. One road is the road of greed and technology without wisdom or respect for life. This road represents a rush to destruction. The other road is spirituality, a slower path that includes respect for all living things. If we choose the spiritual path, we can light yet another fire, an Eight Fire, and begin an extended period of Peace and healthy growth.
Grandfather William Commanda, Circle of All Nations Prophecy of the Seven Fires of the Anishnabe, From Ancient Wampum Belt

While Wikipedia would have people believe that the legend originates in a 1962 book titled ‘Warriors of the Rainbow’ by William Willoya and Vinson Brown, the reality is that the prophecy is ancient, passed down as oral history over many generations. Brown, himself, admitted that his research came from the Hopi prophecies, and the book has been criticised as an attempt to evangelize with the Native American community by relating the prophecy of the Rainbow Warriors to the Second Coming of Christ.

References to a new Era, a Golden Age characterised by harmony, stability and prosperity, do not just belong to the Native Americans, but can be found in myths and legends from all over the world. It is known as Chryson Genos in Greek mythology, the Kali yuga in Vedic and Hindu culture, and gullaldr in Norse mythology. One aspect that is common among many legends of the Golden era is the return of beings or gods that will aid in the restoration of the Earth.

In classical Greek mythology the Golden Age was presided over by the leading Titan Cronus. In some version of the myth Astraea, also ruled. She lived with men until the end of the Silver Age, but in the Bronze Age, when men became violent and greedy, fled to the stars, where she appears as the constellation Virgo, holding the scales of Justice, or Libra.

Whether these prophecies are true or not, much of what is spoken about – the era of greed and violence – is a reality throughout much of the world today. Corruption, greed, poverty, consumerism, power to the few, and injustice are predominant characteristics of our civilization accompanied by a great technological advancement that has become a weapon for mass destruction and a tool for supressing resistance. Whether beings from the past will interfere or not, one thing is for sure, life cannot continue in this way forever.

Guest post

In preparation for this blog blitz, I asked the person organizing it, Giselle from Xpresso Book Tours, what exactly I should write about in my guest posts. She suggested many things, but one was my favorite male characters in YA. I’m not entirely sure why they had to be male? Maybe it’s that whole book boyfriend craze? I don’t know. So I started thinking. She actually said they could be in any fiction, if I wanted, but I quickly realized I absolutely had to limit it to YA. There’s just too many. And as I made the list, I realized something else. Many of the characters I listed actually came from my favorite books. Not every book on this list is my favorite, and many of my favorites did not make this list. But many did. Another thing I realized was this: If I had had to name my favorite female characters too, many of them come from the exact same books, and to be honest, I will probably point those out too as I proceed. Because, really, I think characters are important no matter their gender, and I’m not one of those book boyfriend people. (I know, I know! How dare I? It’s really just because my husband is as amazing, if not more so, than any of the men on this list, I promise. He is like the ultimate book boyfriend.) Anyways, let’s move on to the list, shall we?

In no particular order (really, just the ones that popped into my head):

1) Justin – The Voice by Jennifer Anne Davis. The Voice is actually in my top 10 (probably even my top 5) books. I absolutely love this book and adore the author. But that’s not the point of this post, is it? Justin is an amazing character. He is strong and caring. He cares so much for the MC but most of the time, he can’t even show her or tell her. He works so hard to protect her and she doesn’t even know it at first. He is the ultimate gentlemen and I just love him so much. Audrey from the book is an amazing female character too, if you’re curious. She goes through hell and manages to not only survive, but become a much stronger person because of that. And that is something to be admired.

2) Darmik and Savenek – The True Reign Series – Jennifer Anne Davis. I know there are two people on this line, but I wanted to keep the book together. Darmik is a fighter, the commander of the king’s army, so he’s definitely tough and strong, which is in and of itself a good thing. But he also completely turns his life around for one girl. And when I say completely turns his life around, I mean, he could be murdered by his own family for his actions. But he doesn’t care, because he’s more interested in doing the right thing and protecting this girl. And Savenek, well, he’s just sarcastic and snarky and that’s just so fun. No, he really is great for other reasons. But those are the main two.

3) Cinder/Brian and Rob – Cinder and Ella by Kelly Oram. To give you a little background info, this a contemporary Cinderella story, but it’s woven in such a way that is actually quite subtle and brilliant. Brian is our handsome prince, known to Ellamara, our Cinderella, as Cinder. He is a cocky and conceited playboy. But he’s also an incredible friend who cares very deeply for Ella. Not only would he walk over hot coals for her, he’d crawl over them. He is an amazing character in his depth. He’s snarky, he’s arrogant, he’s irritating. But he’s also clever, caring, and kind. Rob is a supporting character, but he is just so sweet to Ella too, a perfect gentlemen, that it’s nearly impossible not to like him. He’s just too good of a guy. P.S. Ellamara is brilliant and I highly recommend this book, just as I do pretty much every book on this list. Scratch that. Every book.

4) Grayson – The Avery Shaw Experiment by Kelly Oram. This guy is kinda like Brian, except where Brian is famous and rich, Grayson is merely handsome and popular. But the same rules apply. He’s pretty cocky and full-of-himself, but he goes out of his way to help Avery. He does things he’d rather not do, like join the science club, to try to comfort her after his jerk of a brother breaks her heart. He deprives himself of what he wants because it’s best for Avery. He steps out of his comfort zone to help her. And that is very gallant, and the perfect way to steal my heart. I’m starting to notice another pattern. I think I love guys that are devoted to their women. I think that’s the main requirement. Interesting.

5) Tristan – Archers of Avalon Series by Chelsea Fine. Let me start this one by saying, it has been a while since I’ve read this series, so I’m a little fuzzy on all the details, but I still love Tristan enough that I remembered him. Tristan is a tortured soul. Literally, I think. I’m trying really hard to explain my love without spoiling the plot of all these books, so forgive me if I mess up and do so, or if I’m super vague. Tristan loses his girl over and over again. She keeps dying. And when she’s alive, he can’t be with her, or he accelerates her death. But being away from her literally causes him pain. To keep her alive, though, he stays away from her, taking the pain, so that she might have a chance at life. He not only sacrifices his desires and accepts horrible pain, but he also does everything he can to protect her and stop her curse of dying all the time. And no matter what she does in any of these lives, he still loves her as much as he did the first time he fell in love with her. He comes across as a jerk at first, but really, he just loves her so much that he makes her hate him to save her. Which is tragic and beautiful. Tristan is a hunter, an old soul, and a bit of bad@$ for lack of a better term. He’s morbid in a funny sort of way, and stronger than most. He’s just a very well written character, I think.

6) Maxon – The Selection Series by Kiera Cass. I’m not going to talk much about Maxon, I don’t think, since I know how popular of a series this is. Maxon is self-deprecating, intelligent, and really cares. He has a hidden strength and humility that most people don’t see and despite his horrible father and job demands, he really does care about people. And he loves America enough to give her the world. (I love America and her stubbornness by the way)

7) Kile, Henri, Erik – The Heir by Kiera Cass. Technically, this is in the selection series, but different main characters, so I separated them. It’s hard to choose a favorite character from this book, but these are my top 3. I don’t even know what to say about Kile. I just love him. He’s willing to do whatever Eadlyn needs. He wants to talk and comfort her and know her better, but she just wants to make out, and he accepts that, because it’s what she needs from him. Henri is just… How could you not love Henri? I mean, really? He’s just too adorable. And Erik is a good man. He truly cares for Henri, when most would just see him as a job. And he truly cares for Eadlyn too. He takes care of her more than most of the other guys, even though he doesn’t have too. Also, Eadlyn is an amazing character. I know a lot of people for some reason don’t like her. Maybe because she’s too different from America? But I actually think she’s great. She’s realistic. And even though a lot of people think she’s too mean or callous, I don’t. She has to be, a lot of the time, to protect herself. Even in the book, she’s let her guard down before and gotten hurt. So she’s a lot more cautious. She wears a mask. And I think that makes sense. (Sorry. I know that’s off-topic).

8) Akinli – The Siren by Kiera Cass. Akinli is just a good-natured, friendly, goofy guy who falls in love with a silent girl. He is just a true, good guy, and I love him for it.

And because I just can’t help myself, here are two from adult fiction. These are two of my favorite books, so you’ll just have to bear with me.

9) Samuel – Running Barefoot by Amy Harmon. Samuel is a Navajo who begrudgingly befriends a young girl who teaches him more about life than he could ever imagine. She turns his life around and helps him become the man he wants to be. He becomes a marine and returns years later to find that the young girl he’s befriended has become a grown woman who has lost her fianc√© and her light. She’s lost, and he decides to show her the way. He’s a strong character that hates to fail or show weakness, but does so for Josie. He’s a man that is stubborn enough to push Josie into remembering who she used to be, even though she doesn’t want to. He forces her to move on and to start living her life again. His growth in the book is extraordinary and is astounding to watch.

10) Taylor – The Rescue by Nicholas Sparks. I don’t know exactly what to say about Taylor. I love this book and I love him, but it’s been years since I’ve read The Rescue. Taylor is one of those rare men who becomes a father to a child that does not belong to him. To make him even greater, the child is autistic. Not a lot of people bother with autistic children, but this man not only bothers with him, he treats him like a son. And that means something to me. He’s a good man that has to face his self-destructive behavior in order to be with the woman he loves and her son. I like Taylor for other reasons too, but mainly just for the way he treats the little boy.

Excerpt


The commons was designed as a place for officers and elites to enjoy simple recreation and eat without cause for ridiculous ceremonies, such as saluting and acknowledging every single rank beneath them. It was also open all hours of the day to accommodate the various schedules, whereas the mess hall operated during normal meal times only. As I entered, I found it packed with all ranks, eyes glued to the TV lowered from the ceiling in the center of the room. The volume was so high it echoed through the halls. Eventhe shower room on the basement level picked up a low murmured hum just above the buzz of lights when I went to clean up after another workout.

It appeared the news stations had somehow caught wind of the mysterious happenings there. Strange lights, voices, people in dark vehicles coming and going at all hours of the day and night. That wasn’t news to me, and I didn’t want anything else to do with the place. Rarely did the media tell the truth on what really happens. It was better I ignored the report altogether.

I squeezed and pushed my way to the fridge to pull out a pimento sandwich and bottle of water then managed to wiggle my way to the cabinet on the far end for a small bag of chips. Deciding it would be better to eat in my room, I made my way to the door. Right as I reached it, I realized the room fell silent. Looking up, I met the eyes of every soul in the crowded room. They seemed to wait for my reaction.

Then my eyes lifted to the TV, narrowing in on a set of orbs that were like empty black pits with a sprinkling of brown. The single dimple on his cheek remained put as he flashed his arrogant smile to all the cameras surrounding him. My lungs constricted, expelling what seemed like the last of the air left in the room. A black rim dotted my vision and a strange swishing in my ears overwhelmed every other sound. Something crashed to the floor with a loud clatter that echoed too much. My vision faded, and my legs gave out from under me.
