Well,hello! I'm happy to be part of this tour,now the second stop, where we have an awesome interview with Nichole Giles, the author of "Descendant". Hope you enjoy it!


You can see my review HERE







Nichole Giles was born in Nevada, and moved with her parents to a number of cities in and around the West. Writing is her passion, but she also loves to spend time with her husband and four children, travel to tropical and exotic destinations, drive in the rain with the convertible top down, and play music at full volume so she can sing along.









Hi Nichole! I'm happy to host you and your book on my blog.


1. What pushed you to write?
I am a sucker for a good story. I've always been a reader, and I read a few books that involved characters who were authors, and it sparked something in me. At one point, I wondered if I could do something like that too. I signed up for an online class, and then went to a writer's conference, and it snowballed from there.





2. What is the most difficult moment in writing a book?
Oh man, that's a tough one. I think beginnings are hard, because it's hard to know if you're starting in the right place until you actually get to the end. And I also think the middle is hard, because you have to keep people interested while you connect the middle and the end. It's a toss up which one is harder.



3. Do you find yourself in one of the characters?
I think there's a little of every author in each of their main characters, and since we use things we learn from real life to make the characters more real and more believable, I guess that does transfer a little bit sometimes.

4. What things inspire you when you're writing?
I love to drive in my car with the top down, listening to music. The tone of the music is totally dependent on my mood, but can be very influential about what I write later that day.

5. Some writers that you appreciate?
I am a fan of so many authors. I appreciate Elana Johnson, and Leigh Bardugo, George R.R. Martin, Maggie Stiefvater, Ally Condie, and a whole lot of other authors whose names I should mention, but that list would seriously take an entire post.

6. What book would you suggest without thinking too much?
Have you read Possession and Surrender by Elana Johnson? If so, then I definitely recommend Abandon, which is the third in the series. Also I recommend Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo.



7. What do you prefer: reading or writing?
Depends on the day. Reading is almost always easier, and I can do it to escape and relax. But I very much enjoy writing. I do it because I love it.

Thanks for the interview! I enjoyed it.

Seventeen-year-old Abigail Johnson is Gifted.

Blessed-or cursed-with Sight and Healing, Abby lives an unsettled life, moving from place to place and staying one step ahead of the darkness that hunts her. When she arrives in Jackson, Wyoming, she is desperate to maintain the illusion of normalcy, but she is plagued with visions of past lives mixed with frightening glimpses of her future. Then she meets Kye, a mysterious boy who seems so achingly familiar that Abby is drawn to him like he's a missing piece of her own soul.

Before Abby can discover the reason for her feelings toward Kye, the darkness catches up to her and she is forced to flee again. But this time she's not just running. She is fighting back with Kye at her side, and it's not only Abby's life at stake. (Goodreads)

Praise for DESCENDANT:
"A hot new spin on paranormal,
 Descendant is
refreshingly imaginative and powerful. I can't decide which was best -- piecing
together Abby's sinister past or keeping up with her heartbreaking future. If
you like your YA laced with melt-my-heart romance and a good helping of
heart-pounding suspense, you'll love this book!" -- Michelle Davidson
Argyle, author of
 The Breakaway





"Nichole
Giles has crafted a story that breathes from the pages. Her characters are
authentic, the action intense, with powerful emotions that will keep
 Descendant on your mind long after the book ends. Open your eyes
to another facet of our world in Descendant and you'll be sucked into an
adventure with Abby and Kye, that will explore the power of gifts, courage, and
love. With top-notch writing, Giles has crafted a story that breathes from the
pages." --Rachelle J. Christensen, award-winning author of
 Wrong
Number
 and Caller ID





"Nichole
Giles brings a fresh new voice and flawless writing technique to the world of
Young Adult fiction. I was swept away to another place and never wanted to come
back." --Tristi Pinkston, author of
 Turning Pages and the Secret Sisters mystery series





"This
debut novel delivers in all the right ways, with heart-pounding action and a
delicious romance that sweeps centuries. I loved it!" --Elana Johnson,
author of
 Possession and Surrender







"I love you too. Whatever happens, I'll love you till the day I die."
He swears, his arm thightening around me. "This is impossible. I can't love you the way I do, but I can't help it. You can't be with me here, but you are."


Shock steals my breath when I look up and meet the clear blue of the most perfect eyes I've ever seen. The eyes I love. "You're alive."



First of all I want to say that the book was wonderful. When I started I thought it will be a boring story, but after that,getting deeper the book started to catch me little by little. Abby looked like an innocent girl at the beginning of the book, but it really surprised me how she was able to manage some sticky situations. Her relationship with Kye was a little bit odd for me and I didn't like the fact that they fell in love with each other so quickly. The book became really interesting when new kind of paranormal things appear such as spirits, demons and dragons. I totally love dragons and that was a blowing thing for me that boosted me to read the book.


That's one of the parts I like it the most. From a simple death in a normal world everything changed. Probably I would have likes the balance between light and dark to be more equal cause Abby left me the impression that she was fading slowly into the darkness. However, having Kye next to her helped her a lot and they got out from the most awful situations. The end was as expected somehow I still loved it. A lot of emotions were sent to me and that's why Descendant is a good book.


My rating:








Nichole Giles was
born in Nevada, and moved with her parents to a number of cities in and around
the West. Writing is her passion, but she also loves to spend time with
her husband and four children, travel to tropical and exotic destinations,
drive in the rain with the convertible top down, and play music at full volume
