I’m so excited to be a part of this blog tour!!! Jessica’s writing is great, (read the excerpt below to sample some of amazingness of it). I love the whole concept of her book, which is something like I have never read.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
D005 has been a part of a secret government program known as the Delta Project her entire life. She has been genetically modified to be stronger, faster, smarter and to heal faster. Trained in hand-to-hand combat, weaponry and battle tactics, she has been worked to physical and mental exhaustion every day of her life. Raised without love or care of any kind, she has no idea what it means to be happy – to be free. And now she has run away. But then she wakes up on the rocky shore of the Missouri River with no memory of how she got there, or why there are bullet wounds, scratches and bruises riddling her body. Her entire past has become a blank sheet except for a recurring nightmare of her running through the woods with dogs chasing her and voices shouting at her that she can never hide. As she struggles to understand the kind of life she has never had, emotions she has never felt before, and the mystery of her past, she is helped by Brianna Hartman and Reid Phelps – the two teenagers who discover her. When she goes to live with Brianna at the Hartman Ranch, she must also learn to deal with Bri’s brother, the gruff Cormac Hartman, who is running from his own past. He seems to hate her from the word go, but when she discovers his crude attitude is just his way of dealing with the hurt he is feeling, she decides to make it her mission to draw him back into life. Then a mysterious stranger comes to the ranch and her new world comes crashing down around her as her past comes back to haunt her.
Dogs were barking ferociously. They were getting closer. It was dark. There were tress all around her. She was running. She kept looking over her shoulder. The dogs’ barking suddenly sounded closer. She had to get away. She had to hide. She ran franticly. The air was heavy with fear. She ran and ran. Never tiring. Never running out of breath. But the overwhelming fear stayed with her. Hide. It told her. Get away. Then the dogs were there in front of her. Trapping her. Inching closer and closer as she tired to back away but couldn’t. no matter where she turned there were there. Snarling at her. Snapping their sharp pointy teeth at her. Lunging at her.
Someone was yelling “Shoot her! We need her body! Shoot her now before she goes over!” then she was falling. Tumbling. There was pain. An unbelievable amount of pain. The darkness enveloped her.
About the Author:
Jessica Jaster lives in Iowa with her husband and her (currently) one year old and two year old. She has always had an over-active imagination and has been making stories up in her head for herself for as long as she can remember and finally decided to start writing them down (when she is not busy chasing the two little ones around anyway) and sharing them with anyone interested. Most ideas she has so far for her novels are for young adults, some fantasy, some science fiction and some normal contemporary story-lines.
