Zoku's Hope
by Chelsea O'Neal
Tour Organizer: N K Author Services

Daniah is different, she always has been and now her dreams and visions of the future are increasing, she knows her life is changing. She just doesn't know by how much...
Jaiden is different, but he knows why and he knows his responsibilities. He must find the saviour of his race, the angel human half-breeds who are fighting a war for humanity's souls. If he can't convince Daniah she is more than just a little different - she is the princess of their people - they are all going to die.
Unfortunately Daniah doesn't have many reasons to trust Jaiden, especially when he is caught in a web of his own lies.
In a world where half-breed angels walk among us, fighting an evil for our souls, Daniah must find the strength to become the princess we all need.
Chelsea O'Neal has a unique voice in storytelling, threading the characters lives together intricately to give us a complex web of good versus evil in a world descending into chaos...

After Jaiden found Daniah in Juniper, they returned to Garnet City. Daniah is destined to become Queen of Zoku, a race of angel half-breeds who protect the humans from a soul-stealing evil. Now, Daniah is learning of her abilities and responsibilities as queen. Just as things seem to be going smoothly, a group of Zoku show up to help, led by an angel, Shelly.
Mallory has been on her own for most of her life, trying to protect and save those around her.  She is Toyek, and she's been hiding in plain sight while fighting for her life. She is intent on finding her friend’s daughter, whatever it takes, when an innocent trip to the supermarket takes an interesting turn.
Orion has been hired to find a female and, as a Tracker, finding people is his specialty. He discovers much more than he was looking for when he runs into the beautiful Mallory. While pursuing both his target and the resistant Mallory, he finds himself fighting to defend Princess Daniah and the Zoku.
Can Orion and Mallory work together to help Daniah be the hope the Zoku so desperately need? Or will a few surprises and a tragedy be all it takes to break the united front of the Zoku fighting against the evil Meikal?

Chelsea O’Neal lives in her fantasy world where people can fly, vampires could be real, money is never an issue, and the romantic meeting of your true love is a normal happening.  When not relaxing in Chelsea-ville, she enjoys talking with animals that talk back and taking long walks with her Prince Charming…
Actually Chelsea lives in the United States in Nebraska, where she was born and raised, with her black lab Daisey, who hasn’t spoken actual words, but she is pretty sure Daisey understands her. She is yet to meet her Prince Charming, though she is quite sure he is out there. Chelsea enjoys working in a library as well as a cosmetologist. She is an avid reader and writing has always been her passion. Zoku’s Hope is her second novel, and she is working on her next book now.

My Reviews

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting ReadJuly 13, 2014
This review is from: Juniper's Princess (Angel Crest Series Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
This was an interesting story. It's quite different than other Paranormal type reads. I liked the Angel aspect of it. It was a little odd though. I felt like things were described too much, almost in a repetitive way. We're told multiple times what Maki is and it was redundant. I think if this book were trimmed up, it would flow smoother.

This is a long read and it's sure to give you hours of reading fun. I really think a little polishing and it would be phenomenal.

My rating- out of 1-5:
Cover: 2- It blends too much and doesn't stand out. It's almost washed out.
Editing: 4- Content editing would make it run smoother
Plot: 5 - refreshing, inventive
Ending: 3 - drags on a little too much. I felt it could have been wrapped up a little better
All in all, 3.5 stars, and certainly an interesting read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Much betterJuly 13, 2014
This review is from: Zoku's Hope: Angel Crest Series Book 2 (Kindle Edition)
I actually enjoyed this a lot more than the first book. It flowed better, the story was a little more condensed and didn't feel dragged down. I think the ending was perfect.
"You can't take all our hope, we are numerous and we will endure!" This line certainly sums up the whole book well.
If you can get through the first book, this one is certainly an improvement.

My rating- out of 1-5:
Cover: 5 - it bright and stands out
Editing: 4 - some errors, nothing major
Plot: 4 - refreshing
Ending: 4 - well done
