About the Books

b2ap3_thumbnail_9781939106407.jpgREBEL WING (REBEL WING #1)

The Dominion of Atalanta is at war. But for eighteen-year-old Aris, the fighting is nothing more than a distant nightmare, something she watches on news vids from the safety of her idyllic seaside town. Then her boyfriend, Calix, is drafted into the Military, and the nightmare becomes a dangerous reality.
 
Left behind, Aris has nothing to fill her days. Even flying her wingjet--the thing she loves most, aside from Calix--feels meaningless without him by her side. So when she's recruited to be a pilot for an elite search-and-rescue unit, she leaps at the chance, hoping she'll be stationed near Calix. But there's a catch: She must disguise herself as a man named Aristos. There are no women in the Atalantan Military, and there never will be.
 
Aris gives up everything to find Calix: her home. Her family. Even her identity. But as the war 
rages on, Aris discovers she's fighting for much more than her relationship. With each injured person she rescues and each violent battle she survives, Aris is becoming a true soldier--and the best flyer in the Atalantan Military. She's determined to save her Dominion . . . or die trying.

b2ap3_thumbnail_RW2-Stormfall.jpgSTORM FALL (REBEL WING #2)

In the action-packed sequel to Rebel Wing, Aris battles for life and love . . . and not everyone will survive. Aris Haan gave up everything to join the Atalantan Military: her family, her boyfriend, even her identity. In the end, though, it didn’t matter that she was a war hero. When the all-male Military discovered that she was actually a woman, she was sent home and erased from history. 
 
Now she has a chance to go back to the battlefield—as herself. But as hard as it was to be a soldier in disguise, it’s even more difficult now. The men in her unit undermine her at every turn. The Safaran army has spies everywhere, perhaps even on Aris’s stationpoint. And she’s falling for her mysterious superior officer, Milek. But their relationship is forbidden, just stolen moments between training sessions and missions. There’s no room for love in war. 
 
Then Aris discovers that Safara’s leaders have set their sights on her, Atalanta’s hero. And she must find them before they find her . . .

The end is near . . . 
 
When Aris Haan brought down Safara’s biggest war criminal, she’d thought it was a turning point in the war. Victory was on the horizon, as was a peaceful future with her Promised, Milek. 
 
But a deadly new threat has emerged: a Safaran bomb that could wipe out all of Atalanta in one catastrophic blast. Aris is tasked with finding the weapon before it is completed, a mission made more difficult when she starts to suspect that there is a Safaran spy in her unit. Friendships are tested, loyalties are strained, and suddenly Aris no longer knows whom she can trust. 
 
In the epic conclusion to the Rebel Wing series, Atalanta’s fate rests on Aris’s shoulders. Can she find the bomb before it destroys everything—and everyone—she loves?

Are you ready to start reading?!

Hours passed. Aris had no concept of whether it was day or night. The light here never changed. At one point, a soldier slid trays into each of the cells containing a shallow dish of brown slop and a hard chunk of bread. 
 
“Where is Milek?” Aris asked. 
 
The man ignored her.
 
Aris pushed the tray away, not trusting the food. She resumed pacing. She couldn’t just wait for them to come and kill her too. She had to do something. Even if all she could do was die, she had to at least die fighting. But what could she fight with? She had nothing but her uniform. Her solagun and utility knife had been confiscated. Her sythin, the thin cylinder that could knock a grown man unconscious, had been taken too. Her belt. Her boots. Everything but her jacket, her socks, her pants and shirt. Her underthings. She had nothing but—
 
Aris took a deep breath, suddenly aware of the band encircling her chest.
 
She scrambled into the toilet alcove. Hurriedly, she pulled her arms through her sleeves, so they were naked against her stomach. With shaking fingers, she detached her bandeau. She shoved her arms back through her sleeves and inspected the piece of clothing in the sickly glow of the lights. The fabric was elastic, not good for much, but two sturdy underwires were sown in. Using her teeth, she ripped the seams and removed the wires. Each curved in a half moon with pointed ends. They were flexible, which wouldn’t help, but with enough force . . . 
 
She ripped the bandeau again, and wrapped an end of each wire in a scrap of fabric before concealing the makeshift weapons in her clenched hands.
 
The door scraped open again, and another soldier walked in. There was no sign of Milek.
 
Her heart shivered into ice. He’s okay, he’s okay, he’s okay
 
But she knew he wasn’t. He couldn’t be, or they would have brought him back.

I aspire to be like the badass and strong female characters in books, TV and film. I adore their bravery. Most female characters that I have read or watched of are strong and independent. I think my greatest strength is my love for reading and writing/blogging

Nancy Drew is my all time favorite lady from literature. She is clever and has a strong core sense of what is moral. She is also independent. I relate to her in that way.

I would want to be Celeana Sardothien from the Throne of Glass series, or Laura Jean from the To All The Boys I've Loved Before duology. Celeana is an independent assassin, who is strong both physically and mentally. Laura Jean is a girl with a strong family bond. Her two sisters and she are very close, and constantly speak through video calls when the oldest one leaves for university. I admire how close her entire family is, and how they supported each other when their mom/wife died. I guess my greatest strength would be my passion for reading, and my unhealthy obsession with baking. You can win anyone over with a good cookie or cupcake, and have them at your beck-and-call for the promise of another!

I would like to be Lara Jean from To All the Boys I've Loved Before, or Deuce from the Enclave series...They are both so true to themselves, and they learn to understand themselves emotionally. I think my greatest strength is honesty, but I would like to use it well and for the good of others.

If I could choose a protagonist to take inspiration from it would be Katniss Everdeen. Katniss has a strength of soul and a profound devotion to her family and friends that I would like to partake with.

I believe her biggest strength is the force of her will,while my biggest strength is my love of life. I don't lack in kindness either,so I believe we could both share. Katniss would bend but didn't break. I plan to have her strong will someday,and I hope that we will always share a love for life in general.

“At some point, you have to stop running and turn around and face whoever wants you dead.The hard thing is finding the courage to do it.”

I would love to be more like Lena from the Delirium series. She is very passionate, just like I am, and she does not realize her own strength until she has to test it. I think one of my strengths is my compassion for others, I can empathize which gives me a sense of justice.

I aspire to be brave, inteligent, passionate like Lena from Delirium or Annabeth from PJO and HOO series, like Hermione, America and many others. I guess their greatest streinght of all is that they are all themselves, they don't pretend to be someone they are not just to satisfy people around them. My greatest streinght, huh? Maybe the fact that I'm really passionate about things I love and the fact that I would do anything for people I care about no matter how hard it would be.
