Lake of Sins

by L. S. O’Dea

 

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

 

GENRE:  YA, paranormal, dystopian, sci-fi/fantasy

 

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

 

BLURB:

 

In a world where class distinction means the difference between imprisonment and freedom and even life and death, being chosen to stay in the encampment and breed is the only way to guarantee survival for a teenage Producer.

 

Every year after harvest, the finest examples of teenage Producers are assigned mates; the rest are loaded onto carts and hauled away, never to be seen or heard from again. Trinity, a sixteen-year-old Producer, knows that she has no chance of being chosen to stay. She isn’t even full-blooded Producer. Her father is a House Servant and she’s spent her entire life hiding her differences, especially her claws and fangs.

 

She has one week to sneak into the forest and discover what happens to those who are taken. Her plan is simple, but she doesn’t count on being hunted and captured by predators long believed to be extinct. Can she elude her captors to uncover the fate of her kind and return to camp before her escape is discovered?

excerpt

 

“Something’s following us,” he whispered as he unsheathed his knife.

 

The quiet rustle of vegetation behind them signaled that night was not the only thing approaching.  He pointed to a large tree.  She scurried up it and stopped on a limb high off the ground.  He signaled for her to wait and then walked several yards farther before climbing another tree.  He crouched on a low branch, knife in hand.

 

The woods were gray, the shadows growing wider as time passed.  She waited, scanning the forest below, her heart pounding in her ears.  What was hunting them, besides Guards?  She pulled her knife out of the sheath and adjusted her position.  Gaar always said that predators had to have patience, so the smart prey would too.  She was still working on that.  She shifted around again for a different angle.  So far, she hadn’t seen anything dangerous in the forest, but she had traveled mostly with Mirra.  She tried to relax her breathing, but it was coming in short pants.  She had to calm down.  Fear could be smelled.  Fear attracted predators.

 

There was a soft whisper in the vegetation and a pair of glowing red eyes appeared in the brush.  A few feet away were two more eyes and then another set.  There were at least ten pairs, shining in the darkness.

Lake of Sins-Escape
Trinity is sure to be a “harvest lister” this year in L.S. O’Dea’s “Lake of Sins- Escape”. Before she is put on the list and taken to places unknown she wants to search for those that have been taken before. Following an incident with some bullying peers, she escapes her camp and goes in search of where the harvest listers are taken. While on her search she encounters numerous creatures and beings that have only been whispered about.. Trinity is such a kind hearted soul that these creatures can do nothing but agree to help her. What she finds is unbelievably disturbing. I was very quickly drawn into this story and hooked to follow along. O’Dea has a very creative mind to come up with these creatures and what they are fighting against. Besides the very gruesome endings of the harvest listers there was not anything that turned me away from this story and that was just disturbing not due to poor writing. I rate this book 5 fangs and look forward to the next in the series.
***Reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock***
“Lake of Sins Secrets in Blood” by LS O’Dea immediately takes up where “Lake of Sins-Escape” ends and in my opinion is not a stand alone book. Now that Trinity knows what happens to “harvest listers” and she has said her goodbyes to her mother, she has come to terms with living with Gaar and Mirra in the forest and to assist them with freeing the other trackers and handlers. This story introduces several heroic and disturbing characters to our storyline. This book continues with the most disturbing human actions and bands a group of misfits together to fight against them. Although this book I did feel was pretty graphic and disgusting I couldn’t put it down. I rate this story a 5 fangs and hope there are more.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

 

  1. S. O’Dea grew up the youngest of seven. She always wanted to do what her older siblings were doing, especially reading stories.

 

Ill at a young age, she immersed herself in books. Her life changed when she read a short story written by her older brother and realized that normal (somewhat anyway, since her brother was a bit weird in her opinion) people created these amazing stories. From that day forward, she wanted to write.

 

However, as with all good stories, obstacles rose in her path (mostly self-created obstacles) and it took her many years to put finger to keyboard and type her first book.

  1. Thanks for hosting my books and thanks for the review.

  2. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

    • Hi Mai,

      Hmmm. One entire meal? I would definitely pick one of those 5 or 9 course meals 🙂

      This is tough because if you think of it, like one meal is a salad then can the items on the salad vary (like taco salad, cobb salad, Asian salad, etc) or does it have to be the exact same meal?

      If the food has to be the exact same then I’d probably pick a sandwich. A chicken (gardein chicken) with lettuce, tomato, avocado, onion and mustard and mayo. I’m into that sandwich right now (of course, I’d get sick of it really soon).

  3. Great excerpt, thank you for the giveaway!

  4. Sounds like a great book, I enjoyed the excerpt, thanks for sharing it and the review!
