K.C. Neal Pyxis Series

SO LAST SUMMER I READ PYXIS FROM K.C. AND MY WORLD WAS TURNED UPSIDE DOWN! I COULD NOT GET ENOUGH AND I WANTED NO NEEDED MORE AND A YEAR LATER ALIGHT IS COMING OUT ON JULY 27, 2012 SO HERE IS MY REVIEW FOR PYXIS AND THE BLURB AND COVER FOR ALIGHT. ENJOY AND SEE YOU IN JULY FOR THE GIVEAWAY.

Pyxis: The Discovery (Pyxis #1)
Corinne lives an average teenage life working at her dad’s cafe, hanging out with her best friend, and trying to forget a falling-out with her almost-boyfriend Mason. Things take a strange turn when she uses her late grandmother’s food dyes for a bake sale, and her customers suddenly find her irresistibly alluring. Then she discovers she and Mason are haunted by the same dreams of a dark force that consumes everything in its path. 

Pursued by shadowy figures and a crazy woman with secrets from the past, Corinne must find out who her grandmother really was. In her quest to unravel her family’s history, she learns she is destined to protect this world--and the dark world of her dreams. She races to find the answers she seeks before her nightmares break free.

MY REVIEW
Warning: This book is FANTASTIC!
My Rating: 10 of 10

My Cover Thoughts: I absolutely love this cover. The cover designer did a great job! The girl on the cover is kneeling on the ground holding o bottle full of something. This cover draws you in and as you read you will see the significance of the cover. 

My Thoughts/Review: come on a ride of a lifetime with Mason and Corinne! Corinne has had some rough things happen to her and she is still reeling from the death of her grandmother when she has to come to term with her best friend Mason who has left for Africa and is coming back and wants to talk to her.

What is a girl to do when weird things start to happen and she has dreams of things that she does not understand? What will Corinne do about these dreams? What will she do about Mason? Is she in danger?

Take this journey with Mason and Corinne and see what happens when you dare to believe in the unknown. See what happens when you dare to love and trust at the same time. What will they discover about themselves as well as their family? 

K.C. has weaved a world that will draw you in and keep you at the edge of your seat wanting to read more and more till you find out what happens next. Take this adventure with Corinne and Mason and I promise you you will not be disappointed.

Memorable Quotes: Page 83 “Mason?” I said, panic thick in my voice.
“It’s okay. I’m outside, just come and let me in.”
I flew to the basement door, unlocked it, and fell into Mason’s arms. The cold night air curled around us, and I felt goose bumps spread up my bare arms. He nudged the door shut with his foot and reached back to lock it before half-carrying me back to my room.

“The fog, it was in here,” I said, my mouth dry and gritty. I shivered violently, and he pulled up my comforter and wrapped it around me.

“It‟s gone now. Look.” I squinted across my room and realized he was right. I took a few shaky breaths and couldn’t detect the foul stench. He scooted back so he was supported by my pillows and pulled me against him. I shivered less and less as Mason’s body heat warmed me. I focused on taking slow, even breaths.

Advice: This is a must read series! First book was EPIC! 

I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO JULY 27, 2012 FOR BOOK TWO IN THE SERIES CALLED 
Alight: The Peril (Pyxis #2)
When Corinne learns who the second Guardian is, she must find a way to make peace with the last person in the world she wants to deal with. As she struggles, her nemesis unleashes an otherworldly evil, and a mysterious illness strikes Corinne’s friends. Faltering under the weight of her destiny, Corinne escapes to the dream world. There, she meets Zane, an Australian guy with a hot accent and a revelation that binds them together and alters the path of Corinne’s life. She throws herself into fighting for everything she loves, but just as she’s certain she will prevail, she’s robbed of what she needs most.
