Angry at the human race and its methodical destruction of her resources, Mother Earth recruits souls who have just left their bodies to serve Her, and turns them against humanity. A powerful, rising force proceeds to carry out Mother Nature’s plan to systematically destroy towns, cities, states… and eventually, the world. Amidst the chaos, a forbidden relationship between a human girl, Violette, and Onyx, a lead Gemini, begins. They will both find themselves in the middle of a revolutionary war that will either save, or destroy our world.
Mother Nature is pissed at the way humans have been treating her and she wants her revenge. I was immediately drawn into this very unique supernatural story. This was a truly different book from what I’ve read before and the pace was quick, but not so that you get lost. The Gemini are supposed to kill off the humans for what they have done to the earth, but when Onyx meets Violette everything changes for him. This book had everything, adventure, suspense, romance and supernatural beings. There are characters to love and characters to hate. I stayed up late quite a few nights because I couldn’t bear to stop reading until I knew what happened next. The ending is intriguing and I cant’t wait to see what comes next in this series. I give Gemini Rising a 5/5!
About the Author
I was born in Chesapeake, Virginia on April 19th, 1979. I was raised within the American Indian religion and was taught great respect for the earth and all its living beings. Powwows, sweat lodges, vision quests, you name it, I’ve done it. I was the weird kid who would confront kids on the playground in elementary school when they squished a bug. I would very sincerely tell them what they were doing was morally wrong and then I would pray for the bug to come back as a butterfly in its next life. I grew up in the Bible belt.
I grew up admiring my father, Barry Weinstock, as an author. He took me around the country to different places so he could research and write his Wilderness Survival books. One of his greatest works, “The Path of Power,” was written with a great medicine man, Sunbear. When I was twelve I started hand writing novels. My first one was two thousand pages. My dad always encouraged me and would rave about my writing. He gave me the confidence I needed to keep writing and follow my dream. My daughter, who is twelve, is currently working on her first novel. I hope to continue the legacy.
