Who is Seraphina? Unremebered by Jessica Brody Blog Tour!
Who is Seraphina?
That… is one of the biggest questions of Unremembered by Jessica Brody. And, I’m excited helping you to figure this out – because believe me.. you do not have the slightest idea who Seraphina is- The answer might shock you!
I am super duper exciting kicking the Unremembered Blog Tour off today and I’m even more excited having Jessica Brody today on the Blog. And.. thanks to the awesome people at MacKids – I have a Giveaway at the end of the post!
Hi all! I’m so thrilled to be launching the epic UNREMEMBERED blog tour on Bewitched Bookworms! Hoorah!
When Danny asked me if I would write a post introducing the main character of my story, I was excited but also a bit stumped. How do you effectively introduce a character when the entire book is all about solving the mystery of who that character is? I feared I might never be able to do her introduction justice without completely spoiling everything! Especially since, as the author (yep, that’s me), I know exactly who she is, but as the reader, you’re not really meant to know much about her at all when you start reading. Mostly because she knows nothing about herself! (An inevitable side effect of having a first person narrator with amnesia.)
And that’s when I got the idea to introduce her through someone else’s perspective. A limited point of view from within the world of the story, as opposed to my omniscient point of view from outside of it. So I came up with something that I hope you all enjoy (as I definitely enjoyed writing it!)
So….when we first meet the character in UNREMEMBERED she’s being pulled from the wreckage of a devastating plane crash in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. Because she has no memories of who she is and the police can’t match her fingerprints or DNA to any databases, her identity is a mystery and she becomes a celebrity overnight. Every news outlet in the country is covering the story, including the renowned Los Angeles Daily Tribune.
This is what they reported…
OoOoo!!! And? Ready to meet Seraphina? Oh and the mysterious boy…
I even have a clue for you who she is… and during the next days you will find new clues at every Tour Stop. Don’t miss your chance to find out more about Unremembered, Seraphina and .. the boy!
The only thing worse than forgetting her past… is remembering it.
When Freedom Airlines flight 121 went down over the Pacific Ocean, no one ever expected to find survivors. Which is why the sixteen-year-old girl discovered floating among the wreckage—alive—is making headlines across the globe.
Even more strange is that her body is miraculously unharmed and she has no memories of boarding the plane. She has no memories of her life before the crash. She has no memories period. No one knows how she survived. No one knows why she wasn’t on the passenger manifest. And no one can explain why her DNA and fingerprints can’t be found in a single database in the world.
Crippled by a world she doesn’t know, plagued by abilities she doesn’t understand, and haunted by a looming threat she can’t remember, Seraphina struggles to piece together her forgotten past and discover who she really is. But with every clue only comes more questions. And she’s running out of time to answer them.
Her only hope is a strangely alluring boy who claims to know her from before the crash. Who claims they were in love. But can she really trust him? And will he be able to protect her from the people who have been making her forget?
From popular young adult author, Jessica Brody comes a mesmerizing and suspenseful new series, set in a world where science knows no boundaries, memories are manipulated, and true love can never be forgotten.
Unremembered by Jessica Brody has so much heart and is at the same time exciting, mysterious and thrilling. It’s the perfect combination that will appeal to many different readers all at once! Love a touching story with twists and turns? Then, you must read Unremembered!
So I hope you are now as excited as I am about Unremembered!
And don’t forget to enter the Giveaway which is sponsored by MacKidsBook( because they rock!!)
Much Love and …Who is Seraphina?
OoOO I have something super exciting for you!! Please welcome CC Hunter today at the Bewitched Bookworms for aÂ fabulousÂ guest postÂ and an Giveaway of Taken At Dusk the third book in the amazing Shadow Falls Â series!
Those who follow my reviews during the last few years, I am a huge fan of this series. Born At Midnight is the first book, followed by Awake At Dawn and I loved both books so much! Â I also had the pleasure to interview both boys on the blog: Lucas the mysterious werewolf and Derek the sweet Half-Fairy!
I am more than excited to host this post from CC Hunter today and for the opportunity to give away a copy to you guys!
1. The only thing worse than trying to help a woman with amnesia remember her name and life is trying to help a dead woman with amnesia remember hers.
2. Be careful what you wish forâyou might just get it … and the reality will probably not be anything like the fantasy.
3. The person you think is your enemy could just turn into a friend who’ll do anything to save you.
4. The scariest thing in the world isn’t ghosts or rogue vampires bent on murderâit’s falling in love.
5. Explaining why you have a skunk curled up in your arms to your mom and your old best friend is as easy as eating a brownie while brushing your teeth.
6. We all make mistakes, which is why it’s so important to practice forgiveness.
7. The only thing worse than a pissed-off shape-shifter is a pissed-off shape-shifter in love.
8. Sometimes the earth really does have to open up and swallow you whole before you can accept the truth that’s right in front of you.
9. Vampires have no sense of humor … especially when they get turned into a kangaroo.
10. Free will gives us choices, but even making the right choices can’t change destiny â¦and learning to accept that can be the most painful lesson of all.
11. People arenât always who they say they are, even if you really want them to be.
12. Sometimes when you try to save someone, they end up saving you instead.
13. Never get between a dragon and a warlock on the war path.
Love this post! It makes me wish to read the book again right now! If you want to know what those teasers are all about, come back tomorrow for my Review !!

Happy Friday! Today I have the pleasure to host Author Tiffany Allee. She just published on January 24th her first novella Banshee Charmer and today she stops by the Bookworms to talk about Novels, Novella’s and short stories. In celebration of the release of Banshee Charmer we are giving away one copy!
But for now, please meet and welcome Tiffany Allee:Â
Novellas are a bit of an oddball length when it comes to fiction. Generally ranging from 20-40k words, they’re too long to be considered a short story, and too short to be considered a novel (excepting certain genres). So why read them? Why do I bother writing them?
I absolutely love novellas for a couple of reasons. First, they give me a quick story for those times in my life where I just want to read something entertaining in one or two sittings. I get in these moods when my life is particularly stressful or hectic, and when I’m just not in the right frame of mind for a story that will take me a while to get through.
Second, I love them for trying new authors. I love discovering new writers, but even if an author is fantastic and well-loved, his or her style may not appeal to me for whatever reason. By purchasing and reading a novella to take the writer for a test drive, so to speak, I have a smaller commitment with regards to time. And I’ve generally paid a lower price.
Banshee Charmer does trend on the longer side of the novella range, but it still offers that small taste of my style. And for a couple of hours, I hope that it takes readers for a fun ride in my little world. Here’s a small excerpt from Banshee Charmer. A little nibble, if you will.
Excerpt of Banshee Charmer:Â
[box type=”shadow”]I pulled my 9mm from its shoulder holster and crept into my living room. Light glowed from the dining room. Pretty certain I hadnât left a light on, I eased forward. I took a deep breath and held the air in my lungs, in case whatever waited for me couldnât be hurt with bullets.
I swung my gun up then rounded the corner into my dining room. A manâor something that looked like one anywayâsat at the oak table. He was reading a book. A cup of coffee rested on a coaster in front of him and heâd propped sock-covered feet on my table. Settled in, right at home.
I gaped, unsure of what to say. My face grew hot when I saw the cover of the book in his hand. A beautiful woman held in the arms of a tall, too-handsome hero with abs of steel graced the cover of the romance novel. I barely resisted the urge to shoot him. Who says I donât have fan-freaking-tastic self-control?
âWho are you?â I finally spluttered out.
He set the book down and smiled at me. It was one heck of a smile on one heck of a face. A strong jaw covered in five oâclock shadow, dark eyes, and a head of messy black hair set on a very fit, long body.
âAh, Kiera McLoughlin, I presume?â I thought I detected a slight Irish lilt to his voice, but if he had an accent, it was subtle. He took his feet off the table, moving slowly.
âPresume away. Who are you and what are you doing in my house?â
His smiled turned into a full-on flirtatious grin. âWhy donât you put your gun away so we can talk? About your interesting taste in books, perhaps.â
I glared at him, face burning. Handsome or not, I was in charge in my own house. âNo way, cupcake. Tell me who you are and I might consider putting my gun away.â
He sighed, his chest pressing against his tight T-shirt. I glared harder.
âAll right. My name is Aidan Byrne. Iâm here to talk to you about the murders youâre investigating.â[/box]
January 24th 2012 by Entangled Publishing
Length: 159 pages
When sheâs sent to a crime scene and finds her second dead woman in as many weeks, half-banshee detective Kiera âMacâ McLoughlin is convinced a serial killer is on the loose. Incubi are extinct, her boss insists. But what else can kill a woman in the throes of pleasure? When her partner is murdered after using witchcraft to locate the killer and Mac is thrown off the case, her frustration turns to desperation.
Certain the killer is an incubus, Mac works behind her departmentâs back to chase down slim, sometimes perilous leads. While the killer eludes her, she does discover handsome Aidan Byrne, an investigative counterpart from the enigmatic Otherworlder Enforcement Agency. Mac typically runs her investigations fast and hard, but with Aidan at her side, sheâs running this one âhotâ as well. But Aidan knows more than heâs letting onâsomething that could shatter their blazing romance and add Mac to the killerâs growing body countâ¦
Tiffany Allee currently lives in Phoenix, AZ, by way of Chicago and Denver, and is happily married to a secret romantic. She spends her days working in Corporate America while daydreaming about sexy heroes, ass-kicking heroines, and interesting ways to kill people (for her books, of course). Her nights are reserved for writing and bothering her husband and cats (according to them). Her passions include reading, chocolate, travel, wine, and family.
And now, we have a giveaway for you! Thanks to Entangled Publishing we are giving away 1 eBook of Banshee Charmer and you only have to leave a comment and answer Tiffany’s question:Â
Do you enjoy your fiction in various lengths?
Much love and Happy Friday,
