FS VBT Fear Justice by C.C. Bolick



Fear Justice
by C.C. Bolick

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE: YA Urban Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Seventeen-year-old Rena Mason counts the days until she can leave for college. Every night her father drinks himself to sleep, leaving her to care for her younger brother. When her father is kidnapped by terrorists, her dreams of freedom become a nightmare.


Stunned that her father has a history with these terrorists, Rena knows she must run or be their next victim. She learns the tough guy at school has a reason to look after her - he's working for a government agency with the same goal as the terrorists: find a woman who disappeared eighteen years ago. Time is running out since only this woman's special gift can save the world from a looming nuclear attack.


Rena can't trust anyone, especially not the stone-cold agent she's falling for. Can they save the world before Rena's feelings trap her in an agent's fight for justice?


Fear Justice contains elements of fantasy, sci-fi, and paranormal, with a clean romance. It's the first book in an exciting new series called The Fear Chronicles.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Excerpt Two:

Rena,” Dad said. “Are you okay?”

I turned to where he stood, a few feet from the camper’s door. “It’s nothing. Thought I heard a noise in the woods.”

He walked to the edge of trees and peered into the darkness beyond. In his right hand, he held a bottle of water. His left hand, bent and scarred making his fingers barely able to move, hung at his side. “There’s nothing here but a squirrel. Surely you’re not afraid of a squirrel.”

I’m not afraid of anything,” I said.

Dad smiled and walked toward the water’s edge. “I believe you on that one.”

I moved to stand by his side. “Did you fix the pool?”

Good as new or until someone else loses a retainer and stops it up. Are you thinking of going swimming?”

Not tonight.”

What are you thinking of, Rena?”

Where did Coach Andrews find you?”

Sleeping off a hangover in the back room of a bar down on Railroad Street. Jacob told me you were worried, and with good reason. I promise not to let that happen again.”

I thought something might have happened to you. I should have called you when—”

Dad put an arm around my shoulders. “No, I should have called. I let my demons take over and I wasn’t here to look after you and Alfie.”

We were fine.”

Because of you. I never imagined you growing up without your mother. I always knew the day would come when you realized what I really am inside. Your brother still has a way to go.” He looked down at me. “Thank you for not making him hate me yet.”

No one hates you, Dad. We just want you to be here. Really here, with us all the time, not out drinking.”

I deserved that.” Pulling away, Dad moved closer to the water. “You’re strong, Rena, like your mother. And smart. Thank goodness you didn’t turn out like me.”

I’ve been applying for scholarships. My counselor thinks I’ve got a good shot at getting money for school. I’ve kept a 4.0 in every class and I want to get into a school that teaches aerospace engineering.”

You want to be an engineer?” His eyes stayed on the water. “That would make your mother proud.”

What about you?”

Everything you do makes me proud.”

I want out of this town,” I said, barely above a whisper. “I don’t want to live like this.”

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

C.C. Bolick grew up in south Alabama, where she’s happy to still reside. She’s an engineer by day and a writer by night—too bad she could never do one without the other.

Camping, fishing… she loves the outdoors and the warm Alabama weather. For years she thought up stories to write and finally started putting them on paper back in 2006. If you hear her talking with no one to answer, don’t think she’s crazy. Since talking through her stories works best, a library is her worst place to write… even though it’s her favorite!

C.C. loves to mix sci-fi and paranormal—throw in a little romance and adventure and you’ve got her kind of story. She’s written nine books including the Leftover Girl series, The Agency series, and The Fear Chronicles.

The Book is on sale for $0.99 during the tour.

DV
Berkom is the USA Today bestselling author of two action-packed
thriller series featuring strong female leads (Leine Basso and Kate
Jones). Her love of creating resilient, kick-ass women characters
stems from a lifelong addiction to reading spy novels, mysteries, and
thrillers, and longing to find the female equivalent within those
pages.


Raised
in the Midwest, she earned a BA in political science and promptly
moved to Mexico to live on a sailboat. Several years and many
adventures later, she wrote her first novel and was hooked. The Kate
Jones adventure thriller, Bad Spirits, was first published in 2010 as
an online serial, and was immediately popular with Kindle and Nook
fans. Dead of Winter, Death Rites, and Touring for Death soon
followed before she began the far grittier Leine Basso thriller
series in early 2012 with Serial Date.

DV
currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her husband, Mark, and
several imaginary characters who like to tell her what to do.

Amazon Review - “Another knock out”
Goodreads Review - “Fabolous read..”
Goodreads Review - “Her passion for writing shines through with her words.”


Augustana Prescott is used to following the crowd. Having lost herself somewhere along the way, a newly graduated Stana decides to leave her lacklustre life in Los Angeles and flee to London. Hoping to discover who she truly is away from all the noise, Stana gets more than she bargained for when she meets the Ronan siblings, Alistair and Emilia. 

As she and Emilia grow closer, Stana comes to realise that blood doesn't always make family, and sometimes it's the family you choose, and not the family you're born in to, that matters the most. Stana's connection to Alistair, the manager and singer at her local bar, Saint Street, reignites a flame in herself that she thought was dimmed forever, and she quickly finds her footing in London. The sparks between the handsome Brit and the American girl are clear from the start, but that doesn't mean the path to happily ever after will be easy.

As Stana navigates the trials and tribulations of new love and a makeshift family, her perseverance is tested as strong forces back in LA try to pull her home. When it all becomes too much, Stana will have to decide how much she is willing to risk to keep the life and love she not only wants, but desperately needs.











Scarlett Hopper was born in Sydney, Australia and moved to Los Angeles when she was 10 years old. Her passion for writing came about at a young age when her sister would read her the works of Virginia Woolf and Sylvia Plath. Three years ago, Scarlett re-located back to Sydney where she studies creative writing and communications. When she isn't writing or reading, she spends her time traveling and searching for the best record stores, while eating at 24 hour diners. After her graduation, Scarlett hopes to move back to the US and begin a new adventure in Seattle.
