#99cents #Sale Blitz: Uprising by Allana Kephart & Melissa Simmons


Uprising
The Dolan Prophecies Series Book #1
By- Allana Kephart & Melissa Simmons



Publication Date- April 18th, 2014
Genre- New Adult Dystopian 

The year 2102--the world as it was no longer exists. Ravaged by nuclear war and polluted almost to the point of no return, Earth was dying. When the faeries came and brought their healing magic, humanity was grateful at first. Centuries of damage repaired in just five years, and during the course of that rehabilitation, they invaded. Quietly overthrown, the human race is now enslaved. The majority doesn’t even realize they have no free will. Branded, herded and kept only to further the agendas of the Fae Courts, humanity could be facing extinction.  

But a resistance is coming…  

Fianna Dolan has spent her entire young life preparing herself for an uprising against the Fae. One scorching summer night Fi's parents leave and never return. Thrust into a position of power she never expected, Fi struggles with her new position and the responsibility it entails. When a secretive fae man known only as Flint breaches the city’s defenses claiming he can help, Fi begins to doubt everything she's ever considered truth. As betrayals and deception come to light, will Fi want the answers she’s been seeking, or will trusting Flint lead to her destruction?

   






EXCERPT


He sighs and ruffles my hair. “Get some sleep, Mother Theresa. It’s the middle of the night.”
  I giggle and swat his hand away as he stands up. “You, too, Hellboy. You look half-dead, yourself.”
  “Hellboy?” He gives me a look an older brother would shoot his snarky younger sister. “Honestly, Princess.”
  “Would you prefer Sparky?” I offer. “Flamethrower? Ooh, maybe Twinkly Bottom. Marshmallow Roaster. Flick McAlister.”
  “Oh good God.” He sighs and shakes his head. “Hellboy is fine, Your Highness.”
  I beam at him and he makes a half-amused, half-disbelieving snort. “Goodnight, Lumi.”
  “Night!” I call back, and he disappears from vision toward the library. I roll onto my back and snicker to myself for a few minutes before cracking my book open again and resting it over my face. I fall asleep to the smell of old book, and I believe it’s the calmest I’ve been in centuries.
