{Blog Tour: Review + Giveaway} Descend - By Skye Malone


Author: Skye Malone  
Release Date: 8/4/2014 
Purchase Info: Amazon ~ B&N  
Chloe always dreamed of visiting the ocean, and now the ocean is the only place she has left to go. Trapped in the form of a mermaid and on the run from the Sylphaen, her best chance for safety lies in traveling with Zeke to his underwater home and staying under his protection there.

Leaving isn't easy, however. Her best friend doesn't know where she's gone, and her family doesn't either. She's been forced to abandon Noah, the boy she's liked for years and who she's just discovered likes her too. She only hopes Zeke's people will help her so she can return soon.

But when conspiracies follow her and people start to die, safety becomes harder to find than ever. The Sylphaen are coming. They're more powerful than she could have imagined.

And they're not through with Chloe yet.
If the picture above doesn't say it all, allow me to elaborate!
Chloe+Noah+Zeke+Bad Guys+Shirtless Mermen+Danger+Love= UH-MAZE-ING!
Leaving off immediately where Awaken did, Descend took no time in creating fabulous story lines. Chloe is trying to accept her fate, which also means she could die because of what her parents were. Within the history of this Mermaid type race no one has ever survived with her condition. So not only is trying to avoid a super crazy cult, staying alive has just become her biggest obstacle.
 I would love nothing more than to write this super detailed, spoiler filled review...but at the same time I want to shake my compute like an etch-a-sketch because there is SO much I can't tell you. If you read this first book then you know how delicious Noah is, and also how important he is to Chloe. They not only share secrets, but feel like they don't have to hide who they are with each other. Yes in this book Zeke plays a major roll in Chloe's development as a character, but I will always and forever be #TeamNoah!
One of the things that I truly enjoyed about Skye's writing style is the detail, not only with the appearance of the characters, but how she truly thought out all the little details. For instance, in the beginning a group of characters are camping underwater and every single thing just
felt true. From the camouflage bubble, to the "fire", to the reasoning behind it all.
Skye has such grace & natural talent when it comes to writing, this series will be one that I will follow and fight for until it comes to an end.


Author Bio
Skye Malone is a fantasy and paranormal romance author, which means she spends most of her time not-quite-convinced that the things she imagines couldn't actually exist.
Born and raised in central Illinois, she hopes someday to travel the world – though in the meantime she’ll take any story that whisks her off to a place where the fantastic lives inside the everyday. She loves strong and passionate characters, complex villains, and satisfying endings that stay with you long after the book is done. An inveterate writer, she can’t go a day without getting her hands on a keyboard, and can usually be found typing away while she listens to all the adventures unfolding in her head.
Skye also writes YA urban fantasy as Megan Joel Peterson and is the author of The Children and the Blood trilogy.
