Sleeping Gods by Kristin R. Campbell (Lunangelique #2)
Alexis must pick up the broken pieces of her heart and pull herself together because she has a mission: To awaken the sleeping gods. When she is at the point of giving up, wearing her pretend smiles and feels like there is nothing left of herself, her friend becomes her savior. Patryck helps put Alexis back together again and in return Alexis sees him as something more than a friend…
Together with her brother, Alex, her father, Edmund, and a team of angels they make their way to Mount Latmos, to awaken the gods. But obstacles are in their way, one of them being Cole, the traitor, the one who shattered Alexis’ heart.
New friends and family she never thought she would meet will come to aid Alexis.
… And a love will blossom that will redefine the saying, “Love you forever.”
The Question was asked "How do you keep your writing different? Here is what Kristen had to say.
I try to focus more on the dialogue telling the story. I like descriptions; however, sometimes I think authors take it too far and don’t leave much to the imagination. Another thing I notice young adult authors do that I felt I should be different with was all the chastity. Chastity is a great virtue and something that should not be taken lightly. I understand why so many authors want to drill that into their young readers, but in the real world teenagers have sex. That’s the reality. What I think is important is that IF they decide that’s the avenue they want to take, THEN they need to do it safely.

“I’m going to be normal for once. Going to have a frickin’ latte in frickin’ Italy because that’s what normal people do here.” Normal. I’ve convinced myself that I am just a girl, on vacation, before college. There is me, my brother and my adopted parents. I need to call them by the way.
I walk up to the counter and order a drink. “Ciao. Vorreiun caffèlatte, per favore.”
“Quattro euros,” the cashier demands. I hand him the money and go to sit down by the window and watch the people walk by. When my drink is called I recieve it and then go back to people watching. I free my mind, only concentrating on the world passing by.
This feels good. This feels normal. I’m a girl, in Italy, enjoying a summer vacation. As was planned. A whole year has almost gone by since the craziness that is my life became my life. And to think, last summer I spent all my time trying to find out information on who my parents are and now this summer I know who they are and I’m still trying to find one of them.
Stop thinking about it!
