Title: Devotion (Soul Savers #3)
Author: Kristie Cook
Released: 31st January 2012
Published by: Ang'dora Productions, LLC        
Edition: E-ARC

Blurb:
With powerful abilities gained from the Ang’dora and Tristan back by her side, Alexis thinks she’s ready for the next challenge— protecting her son from what appears to be the inevitable. But she has so much to learn about her powers, her new world and the people in it. Nothing is what it seems to be on the surface, including the Amadis.

Power-hungry politicians comprise the council and make impossible demands. A traitor lurks among them all, inciting trouble that could destroy the Amadis and, ultimately, humanity. The Daemoni wreak havoc in the human world, with the ultimatum that they’ll continue attacking innocents until Alexis and Tristan are expelled from the Amadis’ protection. The couple’s own society begins to shut them out. But that’s not all.

Someone’s keeping a secret. A big one. Faith and hope in Alexis and Tristan will be restored if she can uncover the truth in time.

But the search for answers leads only to the discovery of more betrayals by those closest to Alexis. Her devotion is put to the test—devotion to her husband, to her family, to her people and to her beliefs—leaving her to question whom she’s fighting for and why she should even bother. But if she won’t fight . . . who will?



My review !!!!! Definably the best in the series so far !!!!

An excellent continuous on from book 2.. Twists and turns , a whirlwind of betrayl,action,love, devotion, mystery and lots of gob smacking excitement, you may even shed a tear or two so have the tissues handy.

Book three is the best by far, I know your thinking normally they go down hill after a few books but to no avail this did not !! It was amazing and filled to the brim with everything one could want and more !

Kristie Has woven her magic in this story, pulling the reader into evey page,with great descriptions that will fasinate you and glide us along right till the very end. !! Your reader will be in a frenzy, and I can guarantee you will have this finished in record breaking time !!

Devotion will capture and pique your attention with the wonderful writing, well detailed and intriguing storyline and descriptions that Im you can easily envisage and feel. The reader is not only taken on a an adventure but also has travelled the path with a love story to boot. Chapters that run smoothly, characters you will certainly interact with, and smooth flowing dialogue and storyline that makes it a wonderful read..

Its Filled with action packed scenes that will not only drag you into every page but have you left thinking about it way after this story had ended... Characters you can relate to, and a love story and , devotion that will have you tangled in its web. Yes you will be glued to this story way past the last page has been read.

Book three is even better then the first two books, you ask how is this so ! and I can tell you it is.. Moments where you will be sniffing, grabbing that tissue and other moments where you friskly reading to find out more !!

Miss World Blog Tour - Giveaway & Character Interview.




Welcome to Miss World Blog Tour !! Today I have Kim here for a character Interview ... But first a little about Miss World.



About the Book:


It's 1993. Kim Ho wishes she were Courtney Love, instead of the chubby 16-year-old who clashes with her traditional Chinese parents. Her very own Kurt Cobain arrives in the form of Kevin, a 26-year-old failed musician. But Kevin uses Kim's rock-star dreams to exploit her, and those dreams die along with the real Kurt Cobain.Too scared to tell anyone, Kim conjures up a cross-dressing imaginary friend and dates Walter Riordan, the cute boy from special-ed. Walter helps her recover, but after a joke snowballs into a plot to murder Kevin, Kim's forced to choose between revenge or her sanity. This is a truly daring and original coming-of-age novel about one girl's quest to reclaim her power from those who've stolen it.
Welcome Kim - Lets  here a little about yourself.




 
1) How old are you and where do you live ?



I just turned 18 (Leo), and live in the dorms at UC Irvine. 



2) You are Chinese what do you think about your Chinese parents stressing upon your traditions ?



It’s great to learn about traditions, but they keep forgetting that we’re no longer in China.  It sucks to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave when they put too many restrictions on you.  How can you feel free when you’ve got a 9 pm curfew and your parents never knock before coming into your room?  Besides, they make it seem like the only traditions that matter are outstanding academic achievement and blind obedience.  How boring is that?



3) What is your favourite band?



The Gun Club.



4) Describe yourself in five words,



A beautiful yet volatile soul. 




5) Explain to me what you hope to achieve in life your goals?

I want a happy, exciting life with someone I love.  One where I’m free to be myself and not have to worry about getting judged. I am way more than that fat, ugly girl who was raped the day Kurt was found dead, and it’s always this constant fucking battle to move beyond that. Maybe I’ll sing and play again in the future, I don’t know. If I ever play out, it will be in small, dark club.  Dreams like that doesn’t die so easily, you know?  They just evolve. Careerwise, I want to work at a big, fancy library.   Live in a house with shelves of books and records, and a closet full of cool clothes.   Oh, and cats.  I want cats. 


6) You favourite subject at school.

Composition.

7) Walter is your first love, what do you see in your future ...

Our future’s not looking too pretty. 

8) Whats you fav colour and why

My favorite color is blood red because it’s full of violence and love and life. 

9) Your parents are very strict, do you think this is because of your traditional custom ?

Yes. They meant well and wanted the best for me, but their way of doing it was too extreme.  At the same time, they were so predictable that I began to discover how I could beat their system.   But I can’t complain.  My mom thinks I wouldn’t have gotten into college if she didn’t push me, but I was the one who did all the work.  You can say that I won in the end, because I no longer live at home and they’re helping me out with school. 

10) Describe to me your ideal best friend ** even if he is imaginary or she

We can talk about anything in the world, tell sick jokes, and make fun of other people together.  And even if their farts don’t smell like angel food cake and butter cream frosting, we’re still comfortable enough to burp and fart in front of each other. 

The five qualities you hope to find in a relationship.

Love, safety, understanding, fun times, tons of hot sex. 

11) Murder was an option to take back what was taken from you, what made you think this ?

Well, the loser asshole murdered me, in a way.  I wanted him to know exactly what it feels like to have his power taken away, too.  It’s very Old Testament of me. After what he did, I had no obligation to treat him like a human being.
But since he’s such a loser asshole, he’s not worth going to jail for.  That’s the one thing that stopped me from going through with it.  I prefer college to jail, anyway, and don’t really think I’m into other girls. 


12) Kurt cobain - describe to me in five words why he rocked your world

My divine blue-eyed daydream.

13) How do you envisage your perfect family

Me, my man, a couple cats. 

Ok some quick fun questions.
Fav takeout – Mexican.
Song – “Low” by Cracker
Actor – Nicolas Cage.

Movie – Wild at Heart.
Date night -  Mexican food, a rock show and hanging out until sunrise.
