TaintedTainted by D. Hart St. Martin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Reading this book has been one of this years highlights for me....I've had a pretty crappy year. :-P I don't have much time to myself, as most don't, but I looked forward to those little moment when I could just sit and read this beautiful story. ...Like when I'm warming my car. Should have just taken a few minutes, I'll sit and read a hour and a half later...I'm pretty sure my car is all sorts of warmed up and I'm still reading, wasting gas, but it's so worth it. LOL

Tainted is the second book in the Lisen of Solsta series, and by reading them in order you'll get all the amazing benefits of knowing each and every character that much better and appreciating their growth and all the subtle nuance. HOWEVER, Tainted is also a great stand alone novel. It has an easy flow and beautiful imagery. You'll find yourself sucked into the world Hart builds and expands around you. Her imagination is astonishing. For just one example: In this series the people of this world have pouches, like kangaroos. In the first book I thought that was an interesting change, but now in the second book it seems so fantastic a thing. I wish I had one! Could you imagine as a parent (male or female, since in this series both have pouches and can hold their child) touching, caressing, holding the miniature hand of your developing baby while their still growing inside you!? Like I said, Amaz-balls!

Definitely buy this book! You will not regret it.

It may very well be every author's dream to one day have their babies made into moving pictures.  I know it's mine.  I made some promises too.  Like, I promised my brother, Max, that if my books ever got a movie deal, part of the deal would be that his band would get to have songs on the soundtrack.

Max is the fellow, middle right.  That's my big brother. ^_^ I'm very proud of all of my siblings, ranging in age from 15 - 34, 6 brothers and 2 sisters. Sadly we are scattered in the wind.

Anywho, I also have some cross-my-fingers, dream team for casting as well:

 Well...a girl can dream, can't she?

And here are some places in the Paranormal Washington series:
