Because I'm SUPER LUCKY, I got the chance to read David R. Bennett's Pre-Teen/YA/Science Fiction novel, The Crimson Clan before its release! Woop, woop!

This novel follows Destiny Phoenix, a young sixteen-year-old girl who woke up pumped to get her driver's license and gets an entirely different life instead.

Destiny is strong and repeatedly challenged in this ACTION-PACKED adventure, where danger springs up at every turn. She finds herself, and forms powerful bonds with very special friends. These people are the ones in whom she will have to rely on if she is to survive.

This book is appropriate for ten-year olds on up. If you are looking for a book with adventure, lots of fighting and loads of danger, I recommend you pick it up and find out for yourself if Destiny is strong enough....

I give The Crimson Clan **** 4.5 out of 5 Stars!

Excerpt from The Crimson Clan:

"I hope it won't take too long to find, Sandra," Destiny says.

"That depends on the power of Sandy's cell, Des." Chris mutters. "Try calling her."

I do as my hunky boyfriend suggests. I dial Sandra's phone on my brother's cell.

"Hello?" I hear from the other side of the phone with some panting in between the words. Quickly, she seems to stop. "Destiny?"

"Yeah, Sandra," I say. I can hear her gasping for breath. "Where are you?"

"What the hell is going on?" She screams into the phone frantically.

"We're on the way to pick you up."

"Can you kinda hurry," Sandra asks me. “I’ve got these weird pasty freaks on my tail. For what?  I don't know."

"Pasty freaks?" I say aloud. That's when I hear Brandon mutter some curse word and floor the gas pedal.

"Where are you at?"

"Near the Dillard's entrance by Four Oaks Drive."

"Okay, Sandra. Stay calm. We'll be there in five. Meet us at the west entrance of Dillard's."

"All right. Hurry." I hear the panic in Sandra's voice.

"Stay calm and peruse the store not to give any suspicions to the workers."

"K. See ya soon."

"Certainly." I say hanging up the phone.

"Destiny, what's going on?" Chris asks me as I can see the worry in his face. "Are the same ones after Sandy that invaded my home?"

"The exact same creatures. They want us. You, me, Brandon, and Sandra. They don't know about Little Michelle here. Let's keep it that way."


"We're the chosen slayers to bring balance back to this world," Brandon states. "I was sent to a boarding school for my protection when I was nine just after the birth of Destiny."

"That sucks, bro." Chris says as we reach the Mall.

It did not take us long to figure out where Sandra was. People were rushing out the doors of Dillard's in fear. Obviously, these pasty creatures were in the store and have yet to find Sandra.

However, we spot Sandra easily. She managed to mix in with the crowd that rushed out of the store. We screech to a halt. Brandon pops open the back door for Sandra to jump in.

"Sandy, get in," Brandon says to his sister.

"Your car?"

"Forget it. We can come back for it."

The dark haired brown-eyed best friend of mine, who stands at five-foot- four, an inch shorter than me, hurriedly, gets into the Tahoe. Sandra, quickly, jumps in and shuts the door.

"Chris, Miki, what's going on?" She says trying to catch her breath.

The white pasty creatures see us peel out around the Mall ring road as we make our escape after helping Sandra out.

"Hang on!" Brandon screams as one of the wraiths jumps out in front of our car. We run over it leaving a partially body badly squished all over the road.

"I've only heard if these guys before," Brandon tells us. "I don't know how to defeat them."

"Oh, great, we're screwed," Chris mutters.

He, then, gets slapped on the shoulder as their little sister sits zoned out holding her legs. Michelle is totally out of it. This is out of her level of comprehension. Or so I thought.

"Don't worry, I know to defeat these wraiths." I calmly, and confidently,  say. Where did that come from?

David R. Bennett has the next book in the series coming up quick! Stay connected or get connected with David by following his book tour and/or via his network. He is a really great guy and it has been my pleasure to work with him :D

When a stranger arrives in the night and throws her identity into question, Piper is forced to uncover secrets of her true origin. The treacherous demons from a past she never knew she had, are coming for her.  Only the Gypsies know how to deal with the monsters of myth, but can she trust them?
Nicholas proves less than truthful from the get-go but who else can she hold onto amongst a sea of mystic if not hostile strangers? He is dangerous, captivating, and the only one who she knows will stand toe to toe with the creatures of the dark that seek her. But what will it cost and is it a price she can afford to pay?
In search for the truth, Piper will find more than her identity. She will discover her destiny, what she is made of, and the family that determines her fate.
