Now you have no excuses! I really encourage you to read Lucid. Devon and his friends went through a crazy adventure that's worth a read! And once you're finished, be sure to review the book. Reviews are how authors sleep well at night!

For those of you who are reading Lucid, great! I apologize for the cliff-hangers at the end of most chapters, and I hope you didn't lose too much sleep! I won't give away any spoilers, but I do want to encourage you to continue reading after Lucid's story ends.

 At the end of your book, you will get to read a sample of Valerie Noble's wonderful debut novel, The Energy Crusades. I'll go ahead and give you a little more info as a teaser here.

The Book

The Energy Crusades is a post-apocalyptic teen novel. It's definitely well along the same lines as The Hunger Games and the Divergent series but with a crucial part of our society, energy, involved. There's tons of action, suspense, and thrills with the wonderful hint of romance thrown in there to make this a wonderful and compelling read. Don't believe me? Go ahead and read this little blurb:

Everyone knows Kaia, star Athlete for The Reformation Republic-- the girl with the purple eyes. But Kaia's never been less sure of herself as she leaves for University to train for her Energy Crusade. Selected for an elite team with a high energy payout, Kaia should be proud and hopeful-- especially because the captain of her team is Ajax, her dearest childhood friend. But Ajax wants nothing to do with her, and her training exercises raise questions that Kaia's not sure she wants to answer. Why has The Resistance singled her out? Why does she have all these weird abilities that make her feel more alien than human? And why on earth can't she shake her feelings for Ajax, even when he's bent on making things difficult for her?

Ajax shouldn't blame Kaia for the fact that he's stuck at University when his peers are already off on their Crusade, but he can't help it. Between the bitterness of being left behind and the responsibility to lead this new team of Crusaders, Ajax feels frustrated and overburdened. It doesn't help to see Kaia's hurt face when he denies the unique bond they share. How can he allow her to get close to him when he's marked as an Unviable? It's in everyone's best interest that he keeps his distance.

When the training takes an unexpected turn and the Resistance attempts to kidnap Kaia in The Ruined City, Kaia and Ajax realize that they need each other more than they ever expected-- to decipher the conflicting messages of the Reformation and the Resistance, to determine where their loyalties lie, and ultimately to stay alive amidst an epic struggle that will challenge every truth they've ever known.


I told you! But if you still don't believe me, finish Lucid and enjoy the sample of Noble's wonderful tale. You'll be buying hers next, I'm sure of it!
