I’m so excited to be a part of this blog tour! Make sure you check out my review
of Sprite (Annabelle’s Story Part One).
About The Series
Annabelle Walsh thought she had it all. She was the star of her swim team, had a loving family, a great boyfriend, and to top it off, she’d be starting at UCLA in the fall. One day, she’d be referred to as Dr. Annabelle Walsh.
She was living every girl’s dream – until her life was turned upside down. All starting with finding out that she’s not just a human, but also a water spirit. Half-human, half-sprite to be exact. Although not just any sprite, Annabelle is prophesied to be the only one who can save both the sprites and mankind.
With a mix of current events, anecdotes from Greek mythology, tidbits of folklore, and Leigh’s own imagination, we join Annabelle in her journey to restore order beneath the sea. Each step of the way her mind, body, and soul are pushed to the limit begging the question, how much can one half-human, half-sprite take?
|“Michael brings to life a mystical world below the surface of the sea and with fluid incorporation of timeless Greek mythology.“
Excerpt from Annabelle’s Story
It was odd; people have always said that your life flashed before your eyes when you die. But mine didn’t. All I thought about was a story I’d heard as a lifeguard — from a guy who drowned and was brought back to life through CPR.
He said after a few minutes he gradually sunk. It was because little by little all the air had left his lungs. He felt his lungs aching to be replenished, making his heart quicken.
Then the only thing left for him to do was inhale. He had no choice, his body instinctively breathed. It didn’t matter that he was under water. But after he did, the water burned his throat as it went down, it filled his lungs, and then he died.
Right on cue, my body forced me to inhale.
|“Sprite was different from anything I have read before. My attention was captured from the first page, and I knew I was going to enjoy Annabelle’s character.“
