“Rite of the Storm”
Book discussion, reception and signing with author Jessica Carlos
“Kidnapped from a parking lot one night and whisked away from her Texas hometown, Holly Harper must survive a group of hunters out for blood, psychos in suits, and her conscience, the one thing that keeps her teetering on the line between everything she is and everything she could be. Battling the forces of evil for the sake of survival, Holly doesn’t bother wondering why the universe seems to be conspiring against her. All she can wonder is...what took so long?
Holly blames the black cloud. She really does.
Her mother’s family has dealt with that twisted sort of luck for as long as anyone can remember. Now it’s her turn to face it, and her only options are to survive or die trying. But if there’s any mistake the pawns of Satan can’t afford to make, it’s underestimating a Harper, even the smallest, least experienced Harper.
So, watch out world ‘cause Holly Harper’s come alive.”
Jessica Carlos was born in Brownsville, Texas to Hispanic parents. Raised alongside her two older brothers in Olmito, Texas, Jessica developed a passion for reading and writing at a young age. She was published in the Anthology of Poetry by Young Americans (2003 Edition) at the age of 8. At age 17, she graduated from the Math and Science Academy in Brownsville with her high school diploma and Associate of General Education. Two years later, she received her Bachelor of Arts in English and, at age 22, earned her Master of Arts in English in an effort to polish her writing skills by studying literature, composition, and rhetoric. She is currently sitting back, slurping hot chocolate, and working her way through her next couple of novels—that is, when she’s not throwing knives, shooting arrows, or training with her tactical blade.
This event is free and open to the public.
