Gabriel and The Swallows (The Volatile Duology, #1)

Title: Gabriel and the Swallows

Author: Esther Dalseno
Release Date: March 2016
Genre:YA
Publisher: OfTomes Publishing
Series: The Volatile Duology #1
Format: Ebook & paperback
ISBN: 9781523388295
Synopsis:
A lonely farm boy.
A girl with swallow’s wings.
An ancient city buried in a volcano.
A mystery as old as blood and bone.
There is more to Gabriel than the life he’s ashamed of — the song of peasant winemakers, bullied relentlessly on account of his disabled mother. For Gabriel has a secret: the elaborate dream world he descends into at night — a grandiose, vivid existence — is becoming more real than his waking life.
Everything changes for Gabriel when he rescues a wounded creature — a miraculous girl with swallow’s wings — from the voracious pursuit of Alfio Gallo, a dangerous old enemy. Aided by the beautiful and mysterious Orlando Khan, Gabriel is conflicted by unanswered questions: who is the Dark One that dwells in the medieval tunnels beneath their city? Is he just a figment of Gabriel’s powerful imagination? And is the foundling really who she says she is?
Wrestling with manhood whilst beckoned by ancient rites and foreign lands, Gabriel is about to make a deadly decision that changes the course of life as he knows it…as long as he can decide which reality he’s in.

Title: Drown
Author: Esther Dalseno
Pub date: October 31, 2015
Format: Paperback & ebook
Synopsis:  

Seven emotionless princesses.
Three ghostly sirens.
A beautiful, malicious witch haunted by memories.
A handsome, self-mutilating prince.

Belonging to a race that is mostly animal with little humanity, a world obsessed with beauty where morality holds no sway, a little mermaid escapes to the ocean’s surface. Discovering music, a magnificent palace of glass and limestone, and a troubled human prince, she is driven by love to consult the elusive sea-witch who secretly dominates the entire species of merfolk. Upon paying an enormous price for her humanity, the little mermaid begins a new life, uncovering secrets of sexuality and the Immortal Soul. As a deadly virus threatens to contaminate the bloodstreams of the whole merfolk race, the little mermaid must choose between the lives of her people, the man she loves, or herself.

 

I loved Drown, so I hope (I know) that I will LOVE Gabriel and the Swallows! and can we just take a minute to appreciate the cover? It is so pretty!
I seriously love it so much!
