About the Author

This is a story about a girl, named Mia. She grew up in suburb of medium sized city. There were cold winters, and hot sticky summers. Mia�s favorite seasons were spring and fall. She enjoyed the mild seasons, but also loved the vibrant colors each possessed.
Mia loved music. She didn�t just love it, she sat on the floor in front of her Casio stereo for hours at a time, recording songs off the radio. Then she would cue them up and make sure she only got the music as she recorded them on a second tape, without the DJ�s voices on them, just the music. Then she would listen to those songs absorbing the words as she sat in her room and wrote her poetry.

She wrote her first Poem when she was thirteen. It was called Sands of Time. When she was sixteen and again when she was eighteen she won two state competitions for her poetry. Her Poetry was stories of roses, starry nights, love, loss, and the scars left behind. She found recourse in those private moments filling notebooks of her writings. As she grew so did her inspirations, and when ever it hit her the rest of the world melted away until her verses were written, alive in the world.

Even today as Mia writes mostly YA fiction, poetry still holds a special place in her heart. Her love for all things words propels her forward in her pursuit of the next great story. Her Debut Novel The Ocean will be released this spring.

Warning: This book series is EPIC! My Cover Thoughts: I love this cover! It reminds me of the Raven Mockers. My Thoughts/Review: Ellie has a wonderful imagination. She dreams of her guardian angel that will one day come and rescue her. Then she wakes up to reality and realises he was only in her dreams. Ellie is your average teen going to school and trying to hold on to the one person she has left in her life, her brother. Her brother has applied for legal guardianship of her and has just heard the final decision from the courts that he can indeed be her legal guardian. They decide to rent an apartment in a shady part of town because that is all they can afford for now. Her brother tells her to enjoy her junior year because next year she will be considered an adult. She laughs at him and tells him she will but first things first she needs to find a job. As she explores her new neighbourhood she finds a job at a book store. The job is perfect for her and she is excited because she can help her brother out. After her first night out working on the way home she senses she is in danger and feels someone watching her. She is attacked and saved by a boy and his dog. She thanks him and invites him over for something to drink and he says okay. As the days go by she sees this guy and his dog more and more. They strike up a friendship and maybe something more but Ellie can't get past her dream man. See she sees the man of her dreams every night but she can't see him when she is up. Ellie starts to wonder if something sinister is going on and how it is going to affect her and her brother. She will do everything in her power to protect him because he is all she has left. Ellie will have to make some hard decisions and she will learn that there is someone out there that wants her. She is not sure if this person wants to hurt her but she will need to trust her instincts. Will she find someone she can trust? Will she ever wake up from her dreams of her guardian angel rescuing her or is she destined for a life of dreams? Mia has once again captured my heart and soul with these characters and the struggles they face and the triumphs they will have. It is a story that will capture your mind, body and soul! Watch out J.K. Rowling her comes Mia Castile! Memorable Quotes: EPILOGUE: I was running, and though it was dark, I knew where I was going. I was going to him. He was forbidden to me. He wasn't mine, yet I couldn't stay away from him. My hand glided along the stone wall. It was old and dusted onto my fingertips. I stayed close to it. The wind blew the soft fabric of my clothing around me. Ribbons held my hair in place in an up-do that I could never have fixed on my own. My slaves fixed me, knowing that I was breaking the rules-we were breaking the rules-they still remained faithful to me. We would be together. I opened the large, thick, heavy temple door that creaked around the hinges. I breathed heavily as I walked to the altar. The priest stood behind it, reading from his great book. "I'm here, I'm here," I said in a hushed exclamation. "So am I." There he was. He reached for my hand and pulled me close to him. We embraced. I clung to him as he to me. "Are you sure this is your desire? It's never been done before; you'll go against all that is right," the priest asked in a low whisper. But he couldn't change our minds, no more than we could. I loved this man, and he loved me. "Yes," my love answered. "Then so be it." I woke up

book review by Brandi, i got this book for review from the Author, Ellie Solomon has always been sort of a loner. Between her brother (who is the only family she has left) and a few friends (that are more his friends than hers) she lives a boring life. The one person she confides in is her Guardian Angel who visits her dreams. He is her best friend, too bad he's not real. When strange wolves with red eyes begin chasing her one evening, a mysterious boy and his dog saves her, catapulting her into the secret of her parents fate and who she really is. Together, with her new friends she embarks on a journey that leads her to the destiny of her Generation. this book was very good, i really liked this book alot, i am so glad that i was able to review such a amazing book, i highly recommend this book especially to anyone who likes to read ya paranormal romance books, i liked the characters alot, this is a book you can hardly put down long enough to go to sleep, and when you wake up you want to pick this book back up and start reading where you left off at, i really liked and enjoyed this book alot, this book is a must read, the cover of this book is so pretty i like it alot, i am so glad the book is as good as the cover of it is, the storyline is very good, there was never a dull moment in this book, i give this book 5 stars, this book is a must buy for sure, i am looking forward to the next book in this series, i hope there is a 3rd 4th 5th etc book in this series.

Mia Castile’s story is the start of a whole new paradigm in the worlds of fantasy and paranormal. ‘Generations’ is an exciting new concept to me, angel-like creatures that are human, yet have heavenly powers. Being human, they have free will, and are apt to make mistakes like the rest of us. They band together every generation to try to defeat the Noctem, while at the same time trying to avoid being swayed to the dark side themselves. I am a big admirer of Mia Castile’s work, but I am an even bigger admirer of creating something beyond the norm. In this world of info overload, coming up with a radically new concept is hard! Finding a book that will make you say ‘wow’ as you read it is even harder. I highly recommend this book for anyone that likes YA Paranormal or Fantasy. For that matter…I would recommend this book to anyone! 5 Stars! J.T. Lewis
