Overview

A YA Urban Fantasy adventure filled with paranormal secrets, and betrayal.

Connor recently discovers she has the gift of invisibility among other gifts but what she doesn't realize is that her life is about to change for the worse. She is 15, sarcastically funny, at least she thinks so, and doesn't always like to face reality. Soon she meets five other teenagers who have abilities similar to hers but not everyone is so eager to find answers as to why they are different.

Sensing their lives are in danger, she is determined to figure out the truth by any means necessary, forcing her to grow up fast. Connor is slapped with the cold, hard, fact that the people she thought she knew are not who they appear to be and all human beings are not just that, human.

Through all of this, Connor and Tony, one other with abilities, start to develop feelings for each other causing jealousy in more ways than one. Then there is Ronin, he is young, smart, and breathtaking. He is set on taking his revenge out on Connor but she has no idea why.

Meet the Author

I may be a nurse by profession but an author by heart. I have been writing stories for many years, both in my head and on paper because I’ve always had a love for books ever since spending Saturdays at the library as a young child. Within a book the mind can travel to worlds of the imagination and the beyond. I finally took the plunge and published my first novel last year, a young adult urban fantasy titled “Connor” and an adult horror short story titled “Madame Lilly, Voodoo Priestess”. Both are the first editions of many to come as I stay locked up in my office in Colorado spinning more tales.

    This book was referred to me by a friend and I'm so glad it was.

    This book was referred to me by a friend and I'm so glad it was. It may be considered a young adult book but as
     an older adult I found it funny, intriguing, and there were even times I found myself holding my breath in
    anticipation. I felt like a kid all over again with all the adventures and drama. I liked the characters and scene
    descriptions, it allowed me to envision what was happening at that time. Well done on this one and I cannot
     wait for book 2 to come out!

    A YA MUST Read!

    Two pages in and I’m laughing at the dialogue and attitude of Connor, a teen with attitude, no real fashion sense and that feeling like she just doesn’t fit in. Sounds kind of normal, awkward and I’m completely connected to Connor, who wants to just disappear after a particularly bad incident at school. The difference is that she DID disappear! Connor by Dormaine G. is refreshing, fast, fun, and full of the adventures of a group of young people with “special abilities.” What makes Connor stand out from the many amazing books for YA paranormal lovers? Dormaine G. goes beyond giving her characters life, she gives them personality and that special “teen-ness” that only the young can pull off!

    Connor learns she is adopted, she is special and she is not alone. She also is part of a team special teens who each have a set of “powers” that work best with teamwork. Connor truly “blossoms” in her role, finally feeling she belongs, but, thankfully, that attitude and her mental /verbal snark is alive and well. Unfortunately, she is also in danger, there are those who wish to see the end of her existence and are pulling out all the stops in order to get to Connor and her new friends and protectors. Is there a traitor in the ranks? Who is after Connor and why? Will knowing her true history help to defeat their enemies? Even Connor’s heart may not be safe when she meets Tony, another gifted teen who alternately makes her crazy, and makes her pulse race.

    Author Dormaine G. writes with wit, a wonderfully twisted plot and a pace that moves with speed and intensity. You will feel the cold, strain through the darkness and fall into the adventure these kids are living. A wonderful debut! This is another of those hidden gems in YA fantasy reading!

    I don’t think I can begin to say how much I love Connor! This was such a fun, fun read that I’m pretty sure I’ll reread it in the future.

    I think what I love the most about this book was Connor’s sense of humor! I kept on grinning, laughing out loud while reading this book. And also that it was equal parts funny and dramatic and action-packed.

    I love Connor’s family, too! Especially her mom (ah, what I would give to have some of that good cooking mama style). Some characters surprised me (Scott and Willow).

    [I think my most favorite part of the book is the one where Selene and Connor were talking about Destiny. For some reason this part made me sad. At the end of the book, why did I have a feeling that Selene knew about Connor’s Destiny? Hm, maybe it was just me. It was sad but I kind of agree with Selene’s stand on Destiny. (hide spoiler)]

    Eagerly waiting for the next installment! -Josephine Litonjua

    (Disclaimer) I was sent this free ebook in exchange for an honest review. 

    First of all I am a sucker for anything paranormal. Then when you throw in a bit of romance and that Love/Hate relationship with it (sighs)....you have me all the way. I have a soft spot for the hurt/bad guys. The plot was really thought out and the characters were beautifully written. 




    It starts out when Conner first discover her abilities(super powers). She then meets Antony aka Tony and group of friends who share the same type of abilities. Once they go searching for their answers as to who and what they are the action begins. It was non stop and I felt that it ended on a great note. It was sort of a cliffhanger but not to bad. 




    Obviously questions were raised towards the end but what I loved was that Ms. Dormaine didn't full on give the answers that were raised while reading. It was just enough to kind of get you thinking and making sure you keep watch for the second book. 




     Overall this was a great book. I cannot wait to read the next one and I would recommend this book in a heartbeat!

    Connor will be a Hit! a Must Read for all. 
    Being a teen is not the easy time these days, but if you read Connor, you will definitely channel yourself right into the main character. It
    was refreshing to read this book. The Author clearly in some special ways, relates to the characters in the book. She writes where as
     the reader, you want to know what will happen next. It was an easy read, that you will read fast because you want to know what will
     happen next. In the world of Twilight and the Hunger games book series, Connor is refreshing outlook to the book world. I can't wait to
     see what happens in the next book. I hope that it becomes a book series. I really enjoy it!  By Inez S. Cofield

     I must first say I am not a sci fi fan. I love how you don't have to be one to love this book. I was drawn in by the characters and their
    lives and before I knew it I was hooked! A good story, a good plot...that's what I love and this supplied me with more than enough.
    I'm curious to know what is going to happen next and hope another book is in the works. Sabrina RP

    Connor is Dormaine G's debut novel, and I must say that I am pleased with this author's work. She did an awesome job in opening up her main character to readers. The author takes a seemingly regular teenager and makes the possibilities endless for her. As Connor comes into her own and discovers some fascinating "things" about herself and deals with regular issues that we've faced as teenagers ourselves, I could actually imagine myself as her. And it's an exciting journey to see how a regular teenager acquires powers, maneuvers through. Moreover the supporting characters make the journey that much more intriguing. I like how the author took her time in allowing the plot to unfold, even setting up the story for the next book.
    I also loved the concept and execution. The character of Connor is well-developed and practically jumps right off of the pages. She is likable, strong and highly relatable. Clearly, Dormaine G is in her element as she knows how to capture readers with skill, adding humor to this YA/Paranormal read. I hope that this is the first of many books in this series because there is so much possibility with Connor's story.

    This is a high 3 star rating (don't you wish they'd at least let you put in a half star mark as well sometimes!) for a good paranormal YA romp with wise-cracking, head-banging Connor, who discovers she has superpowers and, more disturbingly, that she isn't who she thinks she is, or rather her family aren't her family.

    This is a pacey, punchy story with plenty of action, laced through with teen wit and awkwardness that rings true for any fifteen year old (or is she?) girl growing up fast and furious who finds out that when she sometimes feels as though she's disappeared off everyone's radar she literally HAS! Luckily she's not the only one and soon fellow invisible schoolmate Tony introduces her to several other teens who also have more extraordinary gifts which at least prepares Connor for finding a few more of her own.

    The writing is action-packed and witty, which mostly makes up for some stylistic glitches and continuity gaffes that can jar at times but are easily forgiven as the characterisation is always believable and engaging to match the speed of the main storyline . YA is not my favourite genre, but this got my thumbs up because I love homo superior storylines and possibly alien conspiracies in store because I've no doubt Connor is going to be back again for at least one more outing, as her future rolls out and her past unravels some more.
