Illumine by Alivia Anders

For the past five months Essallie Hanley has been trying to forget about the frightening murder of her boyfriend. Haunted by vivid nightmares and hallucinations of the event she does anything she can to pretend she's like every other normal girl in High School.

Only Essallie is far from normal. Able to conjure blue fire and a shimmering silhouette of wings from her body, she seeks the only known solace left to her name; her first home in Belfast, Maine.

But she soon realizes that her return home is only the beginning of a long and twisted road taking her as far from her humanity as possible, with Kayden, the demon originally summoned to slaughter her, leading the way. Unable to touch her but oddly curious, he joins Essallie in her search to find out just what she is. But neither of them were prepared for the secrets they've begun to unravel, secrets that will change Essallie and everyone around her forever.


Alivia Anders was thirteen when she fell headfirst into the world of internet fanfic and RPG-forum board sites that showed her the 'back door' into the world of writing. Four years and many hours spent glued to a computer screen later she found her true calling in writing.

Alivia currently lives with her family in her hometown of Coopersburg, PA. She frequently admits that if she wasn't so intolerant to dairy she'd live at her local ice cream shop called The Inside Scoop.


Vote For A SHARD OF ICE Cover!

Not too long ago, I asked on my Facebook what you guys wanted to see more, the cover to the final Illumine novel, or the covers I wanted to put to vote for A Shard of Ice, the debut to my new upcoming series, the Black Symphony Saga. By just a teeny-tiny inch, you voted to see the Shard of Ice covers. I'm guessing it probably has to do with all those itty-bitty teasers I keep sharing without giving you any real information as to what this series is about. 

Well, no more fretting. Once this gorgeous cover contest comes to an end, I'll be announcing the winning cover, the blurb, AND a chance for a signed ARC. Oh yeah, baby, I'm going all out on this one. 
So here's how this works- out of the three below, vote for your TWO favorite. That's is, piece of cake. When you're done, feel free to share the vote to your friends! Or leave a comment on which one was truly your favorite of the three. ;)

Voting closes on February 28th, and the winning cover will be announced around mid-March. Now go, vote! 


EDIT: The lovely model in ALL of these covers is Maria Amanda. If you're free for a minute, please check out her Facebook here or her Deviantart here. <3
