Trust by Nanette O'Neal - Book Tour + Giveaway




Forbidden … and yet. The black
vial calls to you.



“Mark my word,” Dr. du Monique said, “One third
of your team will fall to Midnight—and this black vial will be the cause of
it.”




Robyn, Kit, and Cam are called to be on the
Elite Skyborn Warrior Team, but the Legend’s prophecy points a guilty
finger—three of the nine are destined to turn on the prince. They swear none of
them would ever fall, but the vial has a secret, mesmerizing appeal.


While learning to control their powers, their
younger siblings, Shirley, Grace, and McCoy, are taught to spy on suspected
magic-users and turn them in to the police. When the older kids discover a plot
to kill Mr. Fischer, they must use advanced skills they’ve secretly
cultivated—skills that could push them over the edge into Midnight.

Will they be the ones to fall to the dark side, or will their younger siblings
have them arrested before their mission is complete?

A Doorway Back To Forever: TRUST, is the perfect sequel to BELIEVE. It takes
two families on an adventure to Midnight and back that challenges their ability
to trust who they are, why they are here, and what they’ve been chosen to do.
Do you have the courage to join them?



“Nanette O’Neal spins another great tale of faith, this time asking who can
resist temptation—would you pass the test?”
Kary Oberbrunner, author of ELIXIR
Project.

Top Ten List
TRUST Top Ten Interesting Facts about the series
1.     The first and last communication of one of the characters is done in palindromes: “Live on time. Emit no evil,” and, “Live not on evil.” Can you guess who said it?

2.     As many of you know, I’m a huge Trekkie! There are three references to Star Trek in BELIEVE, and four new references in TRUST. Any guesses from those who read BELIEVE or an advanced copy of TRUST?

3.      The lyrics to the Song of the Orb give a hint to the titles for the entire seven-book series. (Listen, now, to the song of the orb. Believe it whispers wisdom. Trust your heart to follow its path. Defending the royal kingdom. Honor the gift that was given to you. Remember your promise there. Restore the truth to its glorious end. Becoming a royal heir.) Any guesses as to the name of the next book?

4.     The poetic nature of the Legend was inspired by chiasms of ancient scripture found in the book of Isaiah in the Old Testament and other early texts, where the first line mirrors the last and each subsequent line is a reflection around the center. Each book includes a piece of the Legend. In TRUST, the first line of the poem is, “One in three masters the power.” The last line is, “Power shatters one in three.”

5.     The three teachers, Coach Horace White, Miss Dianna Mazy, and Dr. Claude du Monique, were inspired by three of my own teachers while growing up—even the hygienically-challenged science teacher!

6.     Coach Horace White got his name from two of my favorite New York Yankees baseball players when I was a kid—Roy White and Horace Clark. I couldn’t name him “Roy Clark,” because of the country music singer, so I named him Horace White!

7.     The Eeberheem children were inspired loosely by my nieces and nephews when they were young.

8.     The names Barsoum (for King Barsoum) and Eeberheem are from my Egyptian family line—my grandfather was Barsoum Ibrahim and my father’s middle name was Barsoum. Eeberheem is loosely based on Ibrahim.

9.     The grandmother figure named Omi is based on my family line from Germany. We called my grandmother Omi (the affectionate name for Oma.) Her knitting behavior is based on my own mother, who still to this day knits everything is sight!

10.                        The character of Mr. Fischer is based on my next door neighbor in my former neighborhood. His dogs, Heidi, Nikki, and Freddie, are my three favorite dogs in real life!
