The Forgotten (Zola Flash #2) by T. Marie Alexander Genre: YA Sci-Fi Release Date: June 7th 2016 Summary from Goodreads:
ZOLA HAS LOST SO MUCH.
Her sense of self.
BUT SHE HAS ALSO GAINED.
And Pin, the Payohlini she loves above all else.
With Renz gone and no one to command the Payohlini army, Zola assumed everything would go back to normal. Well, as normal as life could be for someone like her. The war should be over and her planet and people should be safe. Having accomplished what she set out to do—getting revenge for her family’s murder, she even dares to dream of days spent as a normal girl, of dates with Pin without them looking over their shoulders for flying swords. No more hiding, but living the kind of life she always thought she’d have.
With new responsibilities come new problems, though—as well as a Flash from her past that she didn’t see coming.
One that threatens to change everything.
Zola thought she had nothing else to lose. Unfortunately, she’s about to get a galactic awakening.
No one ever said being a princess would be easy.
Hours later, after I
have taken a nap, I awaken to see Pin is no longer in my bed. Removing myself
from the chair, I stretch, popping my bones. I don’t see how Pin was capable of
sleeping in this chair for a week. My rear seriously hurts.
After making my way
to his room, I find him sitting in a chair reading, a gloomy look upon his
face. As I sit down beside him, he closes the book and looks at me, the gloom
turning to disappointment.
I place my hand on
his knee in a soothing gesture. That small touch sends a shudder down my spine,
and I want to kiss him. Now is not the time, though. “How are you feeling?”
“How do you think I
feel?” he replies in a flat tone.
“It wasn’t your
“This is the second
time I’ve let harm come to you. I’m the one who is supposed to protect you. Not
the other way around. You shouldn’t have had to agree to help them to get me
Oh, gods. “You heard all that?”
unconscious, just weak from whatever that was he shot me with. But now that
we’re on the topic, who was the girl in the photos, if not you?”
I wish I knew how he
can be so impassive. “That’s not important.”
“Zola. Talk. She’s
why you’ve been having night terrors?”
“We should be
focusing on you.”
Pin stands, knocking
my hand away from his knee. Towering over me, he says, “This is exactly why I
didn’t want to start this kind of relationship with you. You defy me at every
turn now. It was easier when you were afraid of my actions.”
I still am. That
doesn’t change how I feel about him, though. “I don’t know who she is.” I stand
from the carpeted floor. “I only know what she said, and that she looks exactly
like me, but with short hair.”
“You’ve talked to
her, and you didn’t think to mention that?”
“Yes . . . no . . .
sorta. It’s complicated. She called me ‘sister’ before she pulled a weapon on
me. I didn’t get a chance to respond.”
Pin studies me for a
moment, frustration flawing his handsome face. Oh, how I would like to kiss
that frustration away. His anger is reasonable, even if I wish otherwise,
because he's right. That is something I should have told him, but I didn’t want
him acting like this.
Shaking his head in
a way that screams of his disappointment, he departs the room without a
backward glance. I assumed we’d get past this—him trying to protect me at every
turn, especially after what happened on Payohlini. I’m pretty sure me killing
his brother shows I’m can handle myself. Though, in his eyes, I guess not.
Hi! I’m La’Teaikia, and I write YA Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Romance. I’ve been an avid reader since ninth grade when I first discovered Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight. I know, I know. Most people think sparkly vampires are just wrong. I am NOT one of those people.
Even though I’ve only been reading for a short time, unlike most authors, I’ve been writing since I was seven. And before you ask, that was fifteen years ago.
To me, everything have to be perfect, which is why it has taken me so long to publish my debut novel, Zola Flash. I tend to plan out and list everything. My husband think it’s excessive.
So with that being said, here are a few things you should know about me, other than what I’ve already said.
I live in the lonely state of Arkansas. I plan to move as soon as I complete my graduate degree, preferably someplace where Taylor Swift tours.
If you didn’t get the hint from my first point, I’m a HUGE Taylor Swift fan.
When I’m not reading or writing, I’m designing clothes and handbags and watching Doctor Who.
I’m a kid at heart. I love Barbie Movies. I love watching Disney Channel. However, them thinking that every movie they come out with needs to be a musical is a bit much.
Chocolate is my life. I’ll eat anything with chocolate . . . well, maybe not anything.
