Too provocative to be labeled a young adult paranormal romance novel, Arianna Rose (Part 1) is the pulse-pounding beginning of a series that follows an eighteen-year-old girl, Arianna Rose, who is unlike other girls her age. She always knew she was different. But shortly after moving to a new town and starting a new school, she realizes her differences are far greater than she originally imagined. Suddenly empowered with seemingly supernatural abilities, Arianna struggles to discover the meaning behind their abrupt appearance.
In this spellbinding first installment of the Arianna Rose series, Arianna must come to terms with what she is, and how to protect herself from forces that want to destroy her.
Mesmerizing and enthralling, Arianna Rose will leave you on the edge of your seat, eagerly awaiting Part 2.

Meet the Author

Jennifer and Christopher Martucci hoped that their life plan had changed radically in early 2010. To date, the jury is still out. But late one night, in January of 2010, the stay-at-home mom of three girls under the age of six had just picked up the last doll from the playroom floor and placed it in a bin when her husband startled her by declaring, “We should write a book, together!” Wearied from a day of shuttling the children to and from school, preschool and Daisy Scouts, laundry, cooking and cleaning, Jennifer simply stared blankly at her husband of fifteen years. After all, the idea of writing a book had been an individual dream each of them had possessed for much of their young adult lives. Both had written separately in their teens and early twenties, but without much success. They would write a dozen chapters here and there only to find that either the plot would fall apart, or characters would lose their zest, or the story would just fall flat. Christopher had always preferred penning science-fiction stories filled with monsters and diabolical villains, while Jennifer had favored venting personal experiences or writing about romance. Inevitably though, frustration and day-to-day life had placed writing on the back burner and for several years, each had pursued alternate (paying) careers. But the dream had never died. And Christopher suggested that their dream ought to be removed from the back burner for further examination. When he proposed that they author a book together on that cold January night, Jennifer was hesitant to reject the idea outright. His proposal sparked a discussion, and the discussion lasted deep into the night. By morning, the idea for the Dark Creations series was born. The Dark Creations series, as well as the Arianna Rose series, are works that were written while Jennifer and Christopher continued about with their daily activities and raised their young children. They changed diapers, potty trained and went to story time at the local library between chapter outlines and served as room parents while fleshing out each section. Life simply continued. And in some ways, their everyday lives were reflected in the characters of each series. As the story line continues to evolve, so too does the Martucci collaboration. Lunches are still packed, noses are still wiped and time remains a rare and precious commodity in their household, but it is the sound of happy chaos that is the true background music of their writing. They hope that their work, though penned for a young adult audience, will be appreciated by the young of every age, and that all enjoy reading it as much as they enjoyed writing it.

With a modern twist on the traditional witch books available, an exciting plot line and edgy characters, Arianna Rose is a great read! I am looking forward to Part 2!!

I really enjoyed this book! the only thing that really kinda threw me off is some of the grammer mistakes and some missing words. I am def getting the rest of the series because I have to know what happens next! this is also a any age book for kids that are around 12 or older because some of the cuss words that are in here but its nothing that is really to much

Not really my style. The whole religious aspect of the story was annoying to me; too cultish. The writing was pretty good, only a few mistakes.

Would God really call someone to kill? Jesus said himself that we should not kill... There is some language and gore and most characters smoke. It is okay, but not right for everybody :~} 125 pages

This was a really a good book just as I started reading I found myself at the end. So totally not a happy camper leaving me on a cliff like that. lol Can't wait to start on the next one....

This book was well written and is a great read. The only problem is.....wheres the rest of the book? I understand the need to save some for the second book but this one seems more like a sample or teaser with a cliffhanger. Overall I really like the story and would like to read the second one which in my opinion will be the finish to this one, not a sequel. The characters are great and I read thisbone fairly quick since I kept wanting to see whats next.

The book is good!! Just didn't agree on the whole thing about killing for God!! Especially from a man who claims to be religious!! I'm trying to figure out what she is.

Super short and nothing happens. Don't waste your time.  The writing style is OK, but the entire book is ~125 pages and only covers about 3 days in the life of the main character. We learn that she has a terrible mother and the book hints at her having magic. Right when something is finally about to happen, the book ends....I have no problem with cliff hangers, but usually books have something happen prior to ending suddenly.
