THE ALMOST GIRL
About Amalie Howard:
AMALIE HOWARD grew up on a small Caribbean island where she spent most of her childhood with her nose buried in a book or being a tomboy running around barefoot, shimmying up mango trees and dreaming of adventure. 25 countries, surfing with sharks and several tattoos later, she has traded in bungee jumping in China for writing the adventures she imagines instead. She isn’t entirely convinced which takes more guts.
She is the award-winning author of several young adult novels critically acclaimed by Kirkus, Publishers Weekly, VOYA, and Booklist, including Waterfell, The Almost Girl, and Alpha Goddess, a Spring 2014 Kid’s INDIE NEXT title. Her debut novel, Bloodspell, was a #1 Amazon bestseller, and the sequel, Bloodcraft, was a national silver IPPY medalist. She is also the co-author of the adult historical romance series, THE LORDS OF ESSEX. As an author of color and a proud supporter of diversity in fiction, her articles on multicultural fiction have appeared in The Portland Book Review and on the popular Diversity in YA blog. She currently resides in Colorado with her husband and three children.

As the last two people disappear behind Caden and his two Faction guards in a blue haze, I take a breath and hit the coordinates on the keypad.
Era’s eyes meet mine. Even in a wheelchair she still looks fierce. “Remember your promise.”
I’m not sure whether she means my promise to not get in the way or my promise to defend Neospes with my life. Maybe they’re one and the same. “I remember.”
I hit ENTER.
The wind sucks at my gut, pulling me in toward my belly-button as if every part of my body is dissolving and coalescing into that one point. I keep my eyes open for as long as possible, watching time elongate on all sides before the wormhole breaks me into a million pieces. The nanobes harden around my cells, making them impervious to the gravitational changes in pressure. For a second, I feel invincible.
At the midpoint of the transition, all is silent, like being in the center of a storm before things start picking up. I’m snapped back together again, disparate cells rushing together toward the whole. As I exit the jump, everything explodes into motion at once.
Voices are coming at me from every direction—screaming and yelling. My ninjatas are out of their harness and in my hands before I can blink. The hot glint of metal reflects o the bodies surrounding us, the sour scent of rotting flesh filling the air. Reptiles—hundreds of them.
My review for
The fallen prince
4 out of 5 stars
This book is # 2 in a series of the Riven Chronicles. However you don’t have to read the very first one before this one. I’am currently now reading the first one The Almost Girl.
I really enjoyed this book. We meet Riven a female that has nanoplasm for blood, a machine and human.
She is in the hunt for her father, the one who made her this way. Riven is out for revenge for all that he has done.
But when the king of the other world needs her help and the fate of Neospes rest in her coming back and working with her father to help those people.
She has to put aside her revenge to help the king who she is in love with.
Caden the young king, is torn by his duty to help his people and doing what he wants by being with Riven.
Their world is being taking over by reptiles and half bred animals made through creations. Riven and Caden and some friends head to another place to make alliances to save his people and world. However it means he will not be able to be with Riven.
But however there are secrets and a spie within their group who want the other world to end. Can Riven trust anyone? Will she figure out what’s really going on before to late? Will she let her feelings for Caden cloud her judgement on the mission that has to be done?
