Blurb:
Sixteen-year-old Trinity was born during a solar eclipse and left at the doorsteps of a convent along with a torn piece of papyrus covered with ancient symbols. Raised by nuns in the English countryside, she leads a quiet life until she’s whisked away to the Island of Cats and a grandmother she never knew.
But before they can get to know each other, her grandmother dies. All that Trinity has left is a mysterious eye-shaped ring. And a thousand grieving cats. As Trinity tries to solve the enigma of the torn papyrus, she discovers a world of bloody sacrifices and evil curses, and a prophecy that points to her and her new feline abilities.
Unwilling to believe that any of the Egyptian gods could still be alive, Trinity turns to eighteen-year-old Seth and is instantly pulled into a vortex of sensations that forces her to confront her true self—and a horrifying destiny.

A certified bookworm, Zoe Kalo has always been obsessed with books and reading. Reading led to writing—compulsively.

A daughter of adventurous expats, she’s had the good fortune of living on 3 continents, learning 4 languages, and experiencing a multicultural life. Currently, she’s working on a Master’s degree in Comparative Literature, which she balances between writing, taking care of her clowder of cats, and searching for the perfect bottle of pinot noir.

~Book Blitz~ In Time For You by Chris Karlson


Back cover blurb for In Time For YouWhile horseback riding in the English countryside, sisters, Electra and Emily Crippen find themselves trapped in a tear in time. Thrown back to 1357 England and caught by a local noble, they are in a place that is home but as frightening and unfamiliar as an alien world would be. With no idea how the tear in time came about, the one thing they do know is: they must stay together and stay near to where the event took place in hopes of discovering the way back to their modern life. That certain need to stay together is the first certainty taken from them when one sister is forced to remain in England and one is sent miles away to Wales by royal order.There is one other hope for help the sisters don’t know exists. It’s Electra’s lover, Roger Marchand. A time traveler himself, he never told her of his past. When he realizes what has happened to the sisters, he enlists the help of a scientist friend to help him open the suspected passageway through time. Any effort to save Electra and Emily will likely cost him his life. This was the time Roger came from, a time when his country, France, was at war with England. If he is discovered on English soil while searching for the sisters, he will either be killed or taken prisoner of war. Any risk is worth saving the life of the woman he loves.

While she ate, the button on Electra's sleeve fell out of the frog loop. She didn't hook the button again, reaching for her wine instead. The sleeve pulled back from her wrist to expose her watch, which she hadn't thought to remove."What is that?" Simon asked and pointed to her Seiko."A watch." What a bizarre question. There wasn't a corner of the planet that people didn't recognize a wristwatch.A frown slowly formed and he stretched across Emily and took hold of Electra's hand to tug it toward him for a better look. He turned her hand over and in a matter of seconds had the clasp undone.He brought the candle in front of his trencher closer and held the watch under it. "What do the numbers mean?""It's a clock, a miniature timepiece you wear on your wrist."From his expression, the explanation puzzled him. "Do they not have candle clocks in this Greenland you claim you're from?"How to explain the abundance of various clocks to a man who apparently has no context for the anything beyond a candle clock or similar ancient means of telling time?"Are you saying you've never seen a clock?" Emily asked."One like this? No, I have not."Emily bent her head nearer Electra and whispered, "Are you thinking what I am?""Sadly, yes."Simon ran his finger over the watch face. "These small digits, what is their meaning?""It's the date and year: 5.14.15."He shook his head. "What year is 15?""2015, of course.""You are mad. It's the year of our Lord, 1357.""What year were you born?""1327, why?"Electra didn't care for the speed which Simon answered. She held onto the small hope this was some odd reality show and that he'd stumble or hesitate before coming up with a year. "No reason, I was just curious." She turned to Richard who'd been chatting with the serving girl. She tapped his arm. Getting his attention she asked, "Richard, what year is this?"He tipped his head like a dog hearing a strange noise. She assumed he too thought her mad for asking. "1357. Do you measure your years differently in your native country?""Yes, it's a different time there." A different world. She looked over at Emily, who'd been listening. The color had drained from her face.For both their sakes, Electra fought to keep from falling apart in front of the whole room. She failed and began to tremble uncontrollably. She balled her hands into fists and turned from Simon to Richard. "I need to go outside. I feel sick.""I'd like to go too," Emily told Simon.
"I'll go as well." He smiled. "Just to make certain nothing untoward befalls you."

Chapter One – Ilyan


Fifth Hop

For a moment, my heart stopped, scared the délka vedení královsk had been lost, but the long length of ribbon was still wrapped around my wrist, kept safe in the only way I knew how in these situations.
“You said that last week, Risha,” I growled as I destroyed another man, the older gentleman crumpling to the ground like improperly made origami.
“This time, I mean it.”
I clenched my teeth at her determination, jaw tightening as my shoulders did, my temper continuing to rise. I was becoming dangerous.
Another man collapsed at my hand, my magic scurrying in a mad attempt to keep us ahead of the fray, only to freeze as the entirety of the narrow street lit up in a bright yellow blaze. Heat moved over us as the luminescence shone over every lifeless body, every smear of blood, revealing the destruction that Prague had become in ribbons of light that made the dilapidated city all the more frightening.
The light washed over us, waves of iron following behind wrapping around me with the force of a weapon. A weapon that if I didn’t fight would destroy us all, friend and foe.
Grimacing in effort, I broke free of the attack, glittering trails of crimson streaking away from me and toward every one of my people. My scream of exertion ricocheted through the light as my magic broke through the attack, ripping the bands from their bodies, releasing them from the deathly bind.
Heaving, I fell to the ground alongside Edmund’s men. My body weak from the assertion, while Edmund’s deformed army lay, gasping dying breaths, their own attack taking their lives in a slow painful end.
I would rejoice in the luck of such a ploy, but I wasn’t a fool.
I could already hear the wings.
The light would bring more Vilỳs to us, and with no quick escape route, our only chance was to go up right as Vilỳs were coming down. My heart pounded violently as I jumped up, muscles shaking with exertion that I had to ignore.

Thanks for stopping by and be sure to visit Jazzy Reviews tomorrow for the next excerpt in the first chapter in Dawn of Ash and if you didn't get a chance to read the previous expert be sure to head over to Cameo Renae!!
