Review: The Onyx Bridge by Sofia Malamas

Hey guys!!! So I received The Onyx Bridge by Sofia Malamas for review and I absolutely loved it!!! But before I start to ramble on about how awesome it is you probably want to know what it's about :)
It is not a peaceful time in the Four Kingdoms. War is imminent, but all fear the coming of the human child, whose arrival, it is foretold, will aid in the resurrection of the terrible Dark Lord Coriol, a being with the power to destroy them all.Nothing extraordinary has ever happened to Evelyn Leighton. That is, until the day she turns seventeen and is transported through a Monet painting into a fantastical world where humans are thought to be extinct.To stop an ancient prophecy from coming true and save the world she has learned to call home, Evelyn must set out on a quest to find a legendary weapon: The Sign of the Four. Reluctantly, she accepts the aid of Jerris, an enigmatic, irresistibly attractive male descendant of the Water Kingdom with sapphire eyes as dark as his past.With her life on the line, Evelyn finds herself battling more than vicious trolls and mythical lion warriors. She must also battle her own heart—a battle she cannot afford to lose.

So when I first read the synopsis I immediately thought about Avatar The Last Airbender but this book is definitely not anything like it, it's much better!! Of course knowing me my favorite part of the book was

This is a poem I wrote called "Life". Hope you enjoy!

Lying on my bed.
Thoughts flowing through my head.

Staring at the ceiling.
Looking at the peelings.

What do I want to do in life?
Should I be a writer or at stay at home wife?

An Excerpt From My Work in Progress (WIP)

Here is an excerpt from my WIP called The Disapperance. I would love to hear what you all think about it.

“If I didn’t know any better I’d think you two were going to prom,” Emily said as she walked toward us.  
     “I think I’ll take that as a compliment,” he said as he leaned down to kiss me.  
As our lips met the world began to disappear around us leaving only me and him.

Review: Kevin's Point of View by Del Shannon

Kevin Tobin is a relatively ordinary 12-year-old dealing with the aftermath of his father's death in a mountain biking accident near their home in Boulder, Colorado. To escape from his emotional turmoil, Kevin has developed his imagination into a dangerous foil and a powerful ally. While he antagonizes his sister through his superhero antics on an average Wednesday morning, his ability to escape inside a character's head become critical to his survival after his life is once-again turned upside down a year after his father's death. A mysterious package arrives in the mail, Kevin and his best friend are hunted down by a ruthless villain set upon world domination, and after enlisting Kevin's teenage sister and her pizza-delivery boyfriend in a battle for control over time itself, the secret of Kevin's whole existence is revealed to him by a source we never expected. Del Shannon's imaginative story, appreciation for the powers of family and the desire of young boys to both escape reality and prove themselves within it, and fast-paced, adventure-filled storytelling style make this a book with wide appeal for readers of all ages.
