What if your name was your destiny? And what if that name foretold a tragic end?It is 1898 in the Azores, nine forgotten islands of magic, mystery and mythology. Since birth, Azorean Eva Maré has been fated to take on the name and tragic life of Arethusa, a Greek nymph who is turned to water after the river god Alpheus falls in love with her.But when she accepts her new name she learns at once that the river god she is to give herself to is none other than Diogo, the son of a rich ship owner, and his obsession for Eva is frightening.When Eva is rescued by Tristan, an Azorean orphan, she finds herself drawn to him despite the overwhelming obstacles between them. But Tristan has a destiny of his own, one that leads him toward another girl, another life, and another tragic end.Will Eva reach Tristan before he loses his life to a cruel twist of fate? Will Tristan save Eva from a fate worse than death at the hand of Diogo? Destined to be with Diogo yet hoping against hope that she will win Tristan's love, Eva must somehow choose between them, or fate will choose for her.Artemis Rising was a 10-year labor of love inspired by a magical stay on Terceira Island in the Portuguese Azores Islands. My unfailing love for these islands and the Azorean people was the catalyst that brought this complex story of fate and belief to life.An E-book Category Finalist in the 2012 Next Generation Indie Book Awards, this YA Historical Fantasy novel is for readers who loved Chelsea Fine's Archers of Avalon series, Megg Jensen's Anathema, and Addison Moore's Celestra series."Left me breathless and spellbound. I wanted to live inside its pages." --Karen Hooper, Author of Tangled Tides* Includes a bonus excerpt from Desolate by awesome YA author Ali Cross!

3.0 Review: Artemis Rising
This book was sort of good, sort of bad. Sort of all sorts of weird and all over the place. I didn't dislike it. But I certainly didn't love it. It was an easy read and went quickly, but it was strange. Not like bizarre, but just the combination of the myths being used and how they didn't even have ...

I loved this book. It was well paced and I could see the characters in my mind. Another great book that should be made into a movie!
