BLOGOVERSARY: Melissa Wright with the Descendants Series


Welcome to another feature for my Blogoversary! 

If you've missed any of the other Blogoversary posts, you can find the schedule with links to each one here.

Today I'm welcoming Melissa Wright to my blog! She wrote one of my favorite series from last year, the Descendants series (see my reviews of Bound by Prophecy and Shifting Fate). She also is giving away an amazing prize pack as part of the giveaway!! I'm already jealous of the winner! ;) Melissa is sharing her playlist for the series with us below, but here's some book info before we get to that:

Bound by Prophecy
(Descendants #1)
by Melissa Wright
NA/YA Paranormal/Urban Fantasy
April 2013 by Createspace


Summary

Twenty-two-year-old Aern is done watching his brother destroy the only thing that matters. He never wanted to take Morgan’s place among council, never wanted to rule their hidden world. But when the key to the prophecy is found, a young girl named Brianna whom Morgan will destroy, Aern knows he has to take action.

What he really wants, is for things to go back to normal. But now he’s kidnapped a girl, and his brother’s men are after him. His only hope is to join with the Division, but they have plans of their own, and it’s the last thing Aern is willing to do.

Emily just wants her sister back. She doesn't care about the prophecy, or realize what’s at stake. But when she goes after Aern, the truth of the matter uncoils, and Brianna isn't the only one who’s in danger.

Suddenly, they’re at the center of a secret war, and unless they can work together, they’ll both have a sacrifice too big to make.

  

Shifting Fate (Descendants Series, #2)Shifting Fate
(Descendants #2)
by Melissa Wright
NA/YA Paranormal/Urban Fantasy
November 2013

Summary

According to prophecy, Brianna Drake was born to save the world. The trouble is, she doesn't have the slightest idea how. Her visions should have given her the answer, but they’re beginning to shift, making the danger too unpredictable, even for a prophet.

If she can just help her sister restore their hidden powers, she might be able to stop what’s coming. But an old enemy returns, and he’s got plans for Brianna and her visions.

What neither of them knows is that fate has given a stranger one chance to find her. He was trained to protect the chosen—but if he fails, the future will crumble.

Shifting Fate is the second book in the Descendants Series (following Bound by Prophecy) and focuses on Brianna and Logan. There is a teaser posted here and the first chapter posted here, but beware, it's full of spoilers from the first book.
