Cover Reveal- BLASTAWAY by Melissa Landers With An Excerpt



Today Melissa Landers and Rockstar Book Tours are revealing the cover and an exclusive content for BLASTAWAY, her new Middle Grade Sci-Fi which releases Summer 2019! Check out the awesome cover and the excerpt!

On to the reveal! 



Title: BLASTAWAY
Author: Melissa Landers
Pub. Date: Summer 2019
Publisher: Disney-Hyperion
Formats: Hardcover, eBook
Pages: ?

Pitched as "Home Alone in space," a young science prodigy who runs away in his family spaceship must team up with a plucky mutant to save the Earth from destruction.

Scheduled for publication Summer 2019.


Exclusive Excerpt!

At some point, I must have fallen asleep.

I say that for two reasons. First, my chin was wet with drool, and I hardly ever slobber on myself when I’m awake. And second, I was no longer on Earth.

I sat bolt upright and stared out the window as distant stars whizzed past in a blur. There were no planets in sight, and judging by the swirling purple nebula ahead of me, this wasn’t the way to Nana’s house. I checked the navigation screen and felt my mouth drop open. The flashing beacon that represented my ship was halfway between Earth and Fasti.

(So you see, it is totally possible to steal a spaceship on accident.)

I guess my hand hit the EXECUTE button when I fell asleep. And because it would take just as long for me to turn around and go home as it would to finish my journey, it made sense to keep going, right? Either way, my parents would ground me into the afterlife, so I might as well earn the sentence, right?

Right.

An electric thrill rushed through my veins when I thought about the possibilities that lay ahead of me. Anything could happen on this trip. Literally anything. I could discover a brand-new element. Or meet a secret race of aliens. Or invent a new energy source. Or eat so much chocolate that I puked. Either way, I had complete freedom to make this journey into whatever I wanted, and once I realized that, there was no freaking way I could turn back. It was like the universe had dropped a gift in my lap, a gift I had no intention of returning.    

I wiped the drool off my chin and smiled.

“Hold onto your stars, Fasti. Here I come.”

Four cords of power. Three trials. Two soul-crushing secrets.  For Lera, training has never been so hard. With the males’ power roaring in her veins and River’s cold demand that she master the magic before the third trial, something has to give. Worse still, River is keeping something from her. Something about his past and Lunos’s future. For River and Coal, the past must stay buried. Though one male’s nightmare sits on a throne and the other’s hides in his soul, they are equally unprepared for Lera’s startling determination to undress the truth. But when Mors’s Emperor Jawrar makes a play for Lunos, neither Lera’s fledgling magic nor the males’ old wounds can remain untouched—not if their world is to survive. TRIAL OF THREE is a full-length reverse-harem fantasy novel, third in the Amazon bestselling, KU-All Star POWER OF FIVE series.

Three trials stand between Lera and exile. Unless the training kills her first.
Quint magic has never chosen a human before, and the Elders Council is convinced Lera is a mistake. 
When the quint refuses to be cleaved apart, the enraged elders give them a choice: exile from Lunos or demotion to the lowest of trainees. Subject again to the humiliations and deadly trials they endured centuries ago, the males now face a new challenge—training Lera to survive. 
River, Shade, Coal, and Tye will do whatever it takes to keep Lera safe. But Lera will do whatever she must to keep them together—even if it means putting herself in mortal danger.

Four elite fae warriors. One mortal female. A magical bond they can’t allow—or resist. 
Orphaned and sold to a harsh master, Lera’s life is about mucking stalls, avoiding her master’s advances, and steering clear of the mystical forest separating the mortal and fae worlds. Only fools venture into the immortal realms, and only dark rumors come out... Until four powerful fae warriors appear at Lera’s barn. 
River, Coal, Tye, and Shade have waited a decade for their new fifth to be chosen, the wounds from their quint brother’s loss still raw. But the magic has played a cruel trick, bonding the four immortal warriors to... a female. A mortal female. 
Distractingly beautiful and dangerously frail, Lera can only be one thing—a mistake. Yet as the males bring Lera back to the fae lands to sever the bond, they discover that she holds more power over their souls than is safe for anyone... especially for Lera herself. 
Power of Five is a full-length reverse-harem fantasy novel. 

Excerpt:
I wrap my hands around my shoulders, snuggling into Tye’s pine-and-citrus scent. “I don’t know why it feels so different from Shade,” I confess before catching myself. Between coupling with Shade and now with Coal, I’m not sure where I stand with Tye.

“Of course it feels different.” Tye snorts. “You’d likely feel uncomfortable walking into the supper hall naked, though that little seems a problem at other times, aye?”

My cheeks flush and Tye chuckles softly, running a knuckle down my cheek in a way that sends a blaze of heat down to my toes. Maybe he does want me. Between all the teasing and lack of follow-up, the confusion is starting to eat at me. Ask. I should just ask. I make my voice light despite my suddenly pounding heart. “If you are maneuvering to drag me into a bedchamber for the sake of testing Autumn’s theory, you should just confess now.”

The male stiffens, the sudden hurt flashing in his face almost too quick to catch. “I never confess to anything, lass,” he says with a wink. “It’s safer for me that way.”

I catch Tye’s arm before he can pull away, the humor leaving my voice. “What did I say?”

“Nothing.”

“Tye.” I pause, an unwelcome feeling now burning in the pit of my stomach. “Do you . . . do you not want me that way?” I ask quietly.

He pulls his arm back, his hands going into his pockets. His usually sparkling green eyes are opaque, the angles of his beautiful face carefully expressionless. “If by that way you mean as a curiosity or a training aid or a bloody toy, then no, lass. I don’t.”

My breath catches. I open my mouth to protest, but Tye shakes his head. For a split second I see a whole new male behind the forever-amused mask, a whole life and past that I know nothing about. For a split second, Tye seems all of his five centuries old.

Leaning forward, he brushes a soft kiss over my lips. “We’ll know when it’s time, lass,” he whispers into my ear. “And it isn’t just yet.” The mask of mischief is back on his face before I can respond, and he pokes my newly healed ribs. “Let’s get back to the suite. Autumn was cleaning when I left, and if there is a greater sign of trouble than that, I’ve yet to learn it.”

One woman, three men and their desire to reclaim their kingdom.

Annabelle is so close and yet still so far from defeating King Robert. The closer she gets to finding the key to overthrowing him, the more complications seem to rise up.

As Annabelle considers what kind of Queen she is going to be, she also has to consider that her feelings for Rhyion are growing. But she’s already in a relationship with the two other members of her guard, Angelo and Lio, is it greedy of her to want Rhyion too?

Annabelle has always been happy with her quiet, normal life. Like most people in Elderan, extreme poverty is all Annabelle has ever known. After humans seized power from the witches 100 years ago, Elderan collapsed along with the witches’ reign but Annabelle has everything she needs in her boyfriend and parents.
 Until one day she doesn’t. When Annabelle’s parents are mysteriously murdered, she finds herself barely able to keep it together and it only gets worse when a wolf shifter named Angelo arrives and explains to her that shes not nearly as normal as she once thought.
 Annabelle is a witch, the last of her kind, and it’s her destiny to help return Elderan to its former glory. But how can she focus on saving her entire country when she’s coming apart at the seams? How can she trust Angelo and his pack mates, Lio and Rhyion? and how can she keep herself from falling in love with them?



Now on to the excerpt!

“Who are you?” I asked first.
“My name’s Angelo,” he told me. “I’m a wolf shifter, as you can well see.”
“Yeah, shockingly, I got that part.” I rolled my eyes. “Real question is, why the hell were you here tonight? Why did you save me? How did you even know to save me? And who was that guy?”
God, the questions were just flying out.
He sighed. “I saved you because saving you is my one and only objective. It has been for several years now.”
I scoffed. “Your objective?”
“Yes, I’ve been tasked with protecting you. It’s the most important task I’ve taken on in my short life. For years, I have been watching you. I’ve been nearby, ready to spring into action if ever necessary.”
My eyes widened. “For years? You’ve just been stalking me?”
“I wouldn’t use those words, but yes. I have had to keep a close eye on you to keep you safe.”
“But I've never seen you before today,” I told him in disbelief.
“I am good at what I do. It would have only made my job harder if you knew you were being watched. So I never presented myself to you. I was purposefully under the radar.”
“If you’re purposefully under the radar, why did I see you today? And when you say tasked with this by who? Who wants to protect me? And why?” I was starting to lose my grip on reality. Nothing he was saying was making sense. I was still quietly hoping that I’d wake up from this weird dream any moment now.
“I showed myself to you today on purpose as well. Today, I needed you to know who I was. I needed you to trust me. It had been long prophesized that today there would be an attack on your life, and it was my job to prevent that. I wasn’t sure you’d trust a complete stranger; the fact that I was recognizable helped to keep you protected.”
This was so much information.
“But what the hell do you mean? Prophesized by who? And that still doesn’t explain who sent you to protect me and who wants me dead!”

He thought about this. “Okay, there is a lot to explain and I am not being very thorough, so let me try to say this in a more complete way. Annabelle, you are a very important woman. The fate of your life determines the fate of Elderan. There is no one person that has tasked me with keeping you safe. I guess you could say it is destiny that has tasked me with it. We have used all the magic that we can attain to see both the past and what little we can of the future. Elderan is falling to pieces and if we’re not careful, it will end up in ruins forever. That is why I am protecting you. That is why you are here.”

About Anna:
Anna Hill spends most of her time writing at home where she lives with her boyfriend and cat. She finds immense joy in spinning together dramatic tales of paranormal love. Her stories are full of mystery, action, romance, and strong female characters as well as the men who love them."
