From Gods Blog Tour & Review

Title: From Gods
Author: Mary Ting
Genre: Young Adult
Tour Host:
Lady Amber's Tours

Did you just see a flash of lightning across the sky on a clear sunny day? It’s not from Mother Nature. It is most likely from Mason Grand, swoon-worthy demigod, one of Zeus’s descendants.

Skylar Rome is supposed to be having the best summer ever before she heads off to college.  Little did she know, her whole life was about to change while visiting her cousin. Nearly drowning at the beach due to unknown forces, one of the Grand brothers she’d just met, Mason, saves her life. Cool, collected, mysterious, and dangerously good-looking, Skylar is drawn to him from the start. Though she knows he is the type of guy good girls stayed away from, it seems he is always saving her life, and the attraction was inevitable.

Upon meeting the brothers, strange things begin to happen. When she accidentally kills one of the brothers, it throws her life into turmoil, as they search to find the answers. Implausibly, she gets caught up in a world of the descendants of ancient gods, all who have super powers. Not only is her discovery difficult to accept, evil beings are after her. Running out of time and running for her life, she must unravel a mystery. What do they want from her? Forced into a battle set into motion long before she was born, will she find the answers, or will she die trying?

My Review: Mary Ting is one author who never ceases to amaze me with her writing. I first fell in love with her Crossroads Series and now From Gods! This book had me captured from the moment my nook came alive I couldn't put it down I was so captivated by this story. It had every element I could have ever asked for in one book and so very much more. The characters in From Gods will have you electrified to there personalities they just seem to walk right off of the pages and reveal their hearts, minds, bodies, and souls to you never asking for anything in return other than to read their story and so I did. From Gods will have you laughing one minute and wanting to hurt someone or something the next. I won't go any further into detail for fear I will give the story away however, I will share with you to be careful picking up this book as you may be "shocked" by what you find but by all means pick it up  you won't be sorry even if it does "zap" you.

Unexpectedly, she felt arms cuddling her, carrying her out the door. Immediately, she knew it was him. Being in Mason’s arms made her speechless, and she didn't want to move a muscle. He laid her down on a wooden bench and bent down on his knee.
Skylar held her eyes closed, but opened them slowly when he brushed the strands of her hair away from her face. Afterward, surprisingly, when his hand slid down tenderly to her cheek, she felt a slight tingling sensation around the area that he touched. Whatever it was that she felt definitely came from him. It was like something between a mild shock and heat, but it wasn't painful; in fact, it felt pleasurable and soothing, and she didn't understand how he was doing it.
Peering up, she caught his eyes as they held hers, through space, through time, through her soul. Sparks flew and some kind of connection Skylar didn't understand erupted through her. Though she didn't want this feeling, she had no other choice, for her heart longed to know him even more.
Mason blinked his eyes, looking frazzled and concerned. “Are you okay?” His tone was softer than usual.
Anchoring her trembling hands on the bench, she raised herself up and rested her back against the wall.

Author Bio:

It was a way to grieve the death of her beloved grandmother, and inspired by a dream she once had as a young girl. When she started reading new adult novels, she fell in love with the genre. It was the reason she had to write one-Something Great. Why the pen name, M Clarke? She tours with Magic Johnson Foundation to promote literacy and her children's chapter book-No Bullies Allowed.
