Meet author Yvette M Calleiro.
Yvette M. Calleiro is a heavily addicted reader of both young adult and adult novels. She spends most of her free time psuedo-living in paranormal worlds with her fictional friends (and boyfriends). She’s also been known to run on the elliptical machine at her gym for hours while reading anything from paranormal to fantasy to suspenseful thrillers. When she’s living amongst real people, Yvette M. Calleiro is a high school Reading teacher. She’s been sharing her love of literature with her students for over seventeen years. Besides writing about the various characters that whisper (and sometimes scream) in her head, she enjoys traveling, watching movies, spending quality time with family and friends, and enjoying the beauty of the ocean. Yvette lives in Miami, Florida, with her beautiful son who allows her to enjoy children’s literature all over again. She also shares her space with an assortment of crazy saltwater animals in her 300-gallon tank.
How do you choose when both options have dire consequences?
Sofia is a 17 year old who is quite content with her life. She has a caring boyfriend who also just happens to be her best friend since birth. She has a loving mother. She is successfully completing her last year of high school and enjoys her part-time job. She can’t imagine wanting more from her life…until Ar’ch (pronounced Ar-rick) enters her dreams, sparking a burning flame inside of her that she can’t seem to extinguish nor does she want to.
Ar’ch is a Diasodz (Die-ah-sodz), a species created by the Goddess back when God created humans. Diasodz were made to heal and protect humans, but when the Diasodz turned their backs on helping humans and left Earth to live in their own world, the Goddess abandoned them. Since then, their powers and their very lives have been fading. A prophecy foretold that a young girl born on Earth would be the Diasodz’s savior. Ar’ch and his brother, Angel, travel to Earth to retrieve her and bring her back to their world before her death day in order to save their kind. Ar’ch knows the drill: find the target, capture her, and safely bring her home. But what happens when the target captures his dormant heart?
Choices create action. Actions have consequences. When faced with the truth, what choice will Sofia make? Will she be able to accept the consequences that follow?
MY REVIEW: 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 Pure Gold!
I love finding a new genre (For myself) to read. The wonderful cover captured my attention, and I’m delighted that I explored further.
This is no ordinary story. Author Yvette M Calleiro has woven intricate threads into the weave of this book. Sofia has lived her entire life anticipating normalcy, a safe and rather dull life, devoid of massive ups and devastating lows. She believed herself to be content.
When Ai’ch erupts into her safe, clean, clear world, she is afraid of the chemistry he ignites. Her conflict is beautifully handled by this author, there are no clichéd characterizations happening here.
This author doesn’t treat the market she writes for as naive, rather, she allows for the fact that the young adults of 2016 are evolving constantly, and she acknowledges for and encourages that. This book delves into the conflicted emotions and choices that young people must deal with, but done in such a way that consequences follow every choice they make. The primary characters are clearly delineated emotionally, with enough being left to the readers own interpretation to further enhance the reading experience.
The peoples described as the Diasodz are clearly visual with tempting lures to drive the reader further into the story.
Author Yvette M Calliero has a fast-paced style, and a deft touch. I believe that not only the YA market, but many adults would benefit from reading her work. I am looking forward with high anticipation to reading book 2.
