Book Description

***WARNING***
THIS BOOK IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. Before you purchase this book, please be aware that Arianna Rose contains mature subject matter, violence, and material with religious reference that could be considered controversial.
Moving from place to place is nothing new to Arianna Rose. Always finding herself on the wrong side of the tracks wherever she goes, she’s used to being an outcast, used to not fitting in. But nothing prepares her for what happens when she and her mother move to Herald Falls. Changes occur. Violence erupts. Arianna learns she’s not an ordinary teenage girl. She’s different… and deadly.
Suddenly empowered with abilities she cannot harness, Arianna struggles to discover the meaning behind their abrupt appearance.
And she’s not alone.
Someone else seeks to understand her powers, and to destroy her.
In this spellbinding first installment of the Arianna Rose series, Arianna must come to terms with what she is, and how to protect herself from forces that hunt her. Mesmerizing and enthralling, Arianna Rose will leave you on the edge of your seat, eagerly awaiting Part 2.
“Loved, loved, loved the story line.....romance, mystery, suspense = a fabulous page turner that you won't be able to put down!! I can't wait to begin part 2.”

2.0 out of 5 stars Review of Arianna Rose-Part1 July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I downloaded this book for free from the Kindle site. I would give this book a solid 2.5 rating. Would I recommend you to downloaded it? A hesitant Yes if it is free and you have time to kill. If it requires your money, then I don't recommend you part with your money. As with many YA books, the authors have gone towards multiple books for one story rather than just a good ol' fashioned book. I could almost overlook this if there was some sort of mild conclusion to the book or some minor closure in this Part One. Rather we are left with absolutely no closure on any level. It seemed more of a prologue or a preview perhaps than a book.

It is a story of a female teenager coming of age and into powers. What powers? Witch powers that seem to include fire and telekinesis. Arianna is being raised by a smoking, drinking, loose, nomadic, no-rules mother named Cathy Rose. Arianna has moved from town to town with her inebriated Mom never putting down roots. As with all wayward written youths she smokes, curses, wears black, rides a dirtbike and plays a banjo. Okay, she doesn't play a banjo but wouldn't that be something? The duo lands in a new town as their story begins. The new kid at school is not a new role for Arianna. She finds a clique and life moves forward except for a random man watching her ride her bike from the roadside.

Meanwhile some maniac with evil intentions is in pursuit of Sola. Who's Sola? Spoiler alert..Sola is Arianna. This warped maniac and his minions are attempting to rid the world of witches. It would seem that Sola is the head prophet for the witches.

One night on the town with friends, Arianna is confronted by a dangerous element and her 'witch'y side comes out in defense and random roadside man appears. And that's where the book stops. Abruptly.

1.0 out of 5 stars Thoroughly disappointed! February 1, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Do not bother downloading this book. It does not end. It is teaser with less than 10 chapters of a book. You will have to then purchase part 2 -whatever) to finish it. Waste of a read. I am not going to spend over 10 dollars to buy different parts of the ebook when I can get a full novel with less that that. It's a rip off!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!!! February 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thought this book was awesome. I loved the characters and cannot wait to read the next parts! For a short book it was well developed and didn't seem slow moving at all. The parts that were fast were so well written and the tone in which they were written were so good that I actually felt like I was there feeling them. Awesome.

3.0 out of 5 stars Highly adult themes for a YA novel. February 27, 2013
By mgraves
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have trouble rating this book. While it is well written with an original concept, I found the subject matter to be a bit disconcerting for a book hailed as YA. I find that the age of the characters combined with the language, underage drinking, smoking, and other various themes would have been more appropriately set in an adult novel. I am no prude by any means, but as a mom, I would not want my young adult daughter to read this. I think it sends a message that several adult behaviors are okay for high schoolers that are by no means emotionally equipped to deal with the ramifications of their actions.

With that said, had this story been about a girl out of high school, an adult, or even a young 20 something would have been a far more convincing situation. The characters were all likeable. The story has an easy unfettered flow. But the highly adult content threw me off.

Not bad for such a short piece of the story. There were few grammar errors, but found the story quite interesting.

1.0 out of 5 stars not a full book October 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I write reviews for BOOKS, not a couple of teaser chapters.

The mother, although EXTREMELY similar to my own, was far too stupid to be believable. Made it too obvious that she was just a writer's ploy for a teenage girl to have total freedom.

So, finish this book and republish.

4.0 out of 5 stars It packs one heck a ending to part 1. February 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am what you would call a mature reader, or an older citizen. I really like to indulge in fantasies. Most of these paranormal or fantasy stories are for teens. But, they read like they are for pre-teens. Really not for adult readers or young adults..
But this one was pretty good. It is about Arianna Rose moving with her mom for the 3rd time since starting in high school. Her mom has problems with alcohol and men. They live now in a run down trailer owned by her uncle, he said they could stay their temporarily.
Arianna likes school and it is no big deal starting anew, she has the procedure down pat. At school she meets Luke and his sister Stephanie, Luke and her seem to hit it off. With Stephanie you never knew.
Several things happen that Arianna is astounded by, and she is the only one that could have been the cause of it.
Like moving the chair out from her nemiesis at the new school, and after totaling her motorcycle and discovering that although her clothing was torn to shreds she and no physical signs of injuries.
There is also a bad guy, a self appointed preacher with a calling (so he claims) to rid earth of all evil. He seems to be forcusing on witches.
The end of part one has one punch after another that leave Arianna Rose totally dumb founded at what she can do.

I have got to order part 2. I felt betrayed that part one ended so quickly.

More About the Author

About the Authors

Jennifer and Christopher Martucci hoped that their life plan had changed radically in early 2010. To date, the jury is still out. But late one night, in January of 2010, the stay-at-home mom of three girls under the age of six had just picked up the last doll from the playroom floor and placed it in a bin when her husband startled her by declaring, "We should write a book, together!" Wearied from a day of shuttling the children to and from school, preschool and Daisy Scouts, laundry, cooking and cleaning, Jennifer simply stared blankly at her husband of fifteen years. After all, the idea of writing a book had been an individual dream each of them had possessed for much of their young adult lives. Both had written separately in their teens and early twenties, but without much success. They would write a dozen chapters here and there only to find that either the plot would fall apart, or characters would lose their zest, or the story would just fall flat. Christopher had always preferred penning science-fiction stories filled with monsters and diabolical villains, while Jennifer had favored venting personal experiences or writing about romance. Inevitably though, frustration and day-to-day life had placed writing on the back burner and for several years, each had pursued alternate (paying) careers. But the dream had never died. And Christopher suggested that their dream ought to be removed from the back burner for further examination. When he proposed that they author a book together on that cold January night, Jennifer was hesitant to reject the idea outright. His proposal sparked a discussion, and the discussion lasted deep into the night. By morning, the idea for the Dark Creations series was born.
The Dark Creations series, as well as the Arianna Rose series, are works that were written while Jennifer and Christopher continued about with their daily activities and raised their young children. They changed diapers, potty trained and went to story time at the local library between chapter outlines and served as room parents while fleshing out each section. Life simply continued. And in some ways, their everyday lives were reflected in the characters of each series.
As the story line continues to evolve, so too does the Martucci collaboration. Lunches are still packed, noses are still wiped and time remains a rare and precious commodity in their household, but it is the sound of happy chaos that is the true background music of their writing. They hope that their work, though penned for a young adult audience, will be appreciated by the young of every age, and that all enjoy reading it as much as they enjoyed writing it.
