Hullabaloos and Book Release Celebrations!

The excitement of this week really knows no bounds. I means, first it was my cover reveal. Then the surprise online party. And now...
Now I get to wish a VERY LOUD and VERY PUBLIC

HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY for one my very best friends, ALI CROSS and DESTINED.

This books is simply amazing. Here is the Goodreads Blurb:
Choosing is a bad idea, because Desi always makes the wrong one, and sometimes there are no do-overs. Certainly not this time, when all has been lost and Desi can’t even save herself, let alone her friends. For Desi, the hardest thing is letting someone help her, to accept their sacrifice on her behalf. But that’s exactly what she’ll have to do in order to save the worlds from Helena’s destruction.
The goddess of Helheimer, long imprisoned by Desi’s father, Loki, is free at last, and she’s bent on reclaiming what once was hers. The nine worlds will be drawn into war, over Hell, over Earth, with innocent humans meaningless collateral. While Michael and the Gardians of Asgard, along with the golden-armored Valkyrie lead the battle for freedom, it’s Desi who holds the destiny of all the worlds in her hands.
Can she set aside her doubts, once and for all, and claim the gifts that are hers to bear? Can she accept the sacrifice that is made for her and Become all that she was created to be?
Her final choice will define not only her future, but the fate of humankind, forever more.

I was fortunate enough to read an early version of the book and WOW oh WOW. This is the epic end to one of my favorite series. The characters come full circle, there is epic action and strong emotions - everything I want in a great journey. Here is exactly what I said about the book:

In Destined, Ali Cross brings a satisfying end to a series that chronicles the journey through darkness everyone must take in order to not only find themselves, but to find the depth of light that lies within. This story has everything I could want with amazing characters, a strong story-line, and writing that is nothing short of brilliant. An amazing finish to a must-read series about love, redemption and the power of choice.

To celebrate the release and the completion of the series, as well as continue the Holiday Hullabaloo fun, I am giving away a complete AUTOGRAPHED set of her Books in print, Just complete the rafflecopter form for your chance to win.
