Mirror X by Karri Thompson Blog Tour - Excerpt + Giveaway




Mirror X (The Van Winkle Chronicles #1) by Karri Thompson
Published: 23rd June 2014 by Entangled Teen

I was born more than a thousand years ago.

Put into a cryogenic tube at age seventeen, forgotten during a holocaust that decimated the world, I've finally been awakened to a more serene and peaceful future.

But things at the hospital are new and strange. And it’s starting to scare me.

Everyone is young. Everyone is banded and tracked. And everyone is keeping secrets. 

The cute geneticist Michael Bennett might be the only good thing in this crazy new world where “life is precious” but no one seems free to live it. The problem is, I don’t think he’s being totally honest with me, either.

When I’m told only I can save the human race from extinction, it’s clear my freeze didn’t avoid a dreadful fate. It only delayed the horror…

Excerpt

“No one’s watching us, Cassie. I made this room temporarily free. I meant what I said.” Michael lowered his voice and met my eyes with a gaze so intense I drew away from him and turned toward the window. When he set his hand on my shoulder, I jerked away.

“You know how I feel about you. For the sake of the program and for the sake of my own heart, I’ve tried to push those feelings away, but it’s been impossible,” he said, replacing his hands as I crossed my arms.

His grip on my shoulders tightened as he searched my eyes for emotions that matched his own, but before I could severe our gaze, his lips were against mine, hot and hard as his palms slid to my upper arms. My raw anger was eclipsed by my need for comfort and love, my lips parted, and my arms fell loosely to my sides, accepting his kiss.

When his hands shifted to my back, drawing me closer, his kisses filled of desperation. I told myself to stop and push away, but with my next breath, the woodsy smell of his cologne lulled my rage.

You can’t do this Cassie. Stop! Remember what he did. He’s one of them.

“No,” I shouted, pushing away. “Things are different now. I don’t want to be with you.”
