I recently met this author and agreed to feature her book on my blog. I have sat down and watched the trailers and read through the descriptions, and this is one that I absolutely cannot wait to read. Who is with me? Ethos is currently available through Amazon, and you can find it by clicking the book cover above. The audiobook is currently in production, as well as a special print edition with full color illustrations. I cannot wait! Ethos currently has over 40 reviews on Amazon.com, all placing it with a 5 star rating so far. This book has just come out at the end of March, and great things are to be expected from this up and coming author. Without further adieu, let me dive right in and introduce you to the book and Desiree Finkbeiner!

Excerpt From Ethos: Morning Star by Desiree Finkbeiner
I half expected to see a dignified woman in white, like the one I had seen on the screen at the scan center but what I saw when the blindfold came off was so breath taking that I couldn’t utter a sound. Kalen hadn’t prepared me for the beauty that stood before me. A massive, purple dragonfly queen with crystalline wings of swirling color and large golden-green eyes like gemstones cut into rare jewels. Her body was long and slender; ten or fifteen feet long with smooth legs of black slicked by an iridescent purple sheen over the top. She watched me intently, waiting to judge my reaction. My eyes widened with amazement and my mouth dropped open into a gigantic smile, as big as a child receiving a long awaited surprise.
