The Last Legacy release is creeping up on us! I can't wait until I can share the book with you readers. It's so exciting! I love this book so damn much. For today's teaser, I'm giving you the first page out of the book. Plus, you get a peek at the chapter headings which were made for just my book by an amazing artist. They're creepy, and sketchy, and all around AWESOME. Enjoy!
I hated taking the bus. Creepy men sat next to me on a daily basis, trying to get me to get off on their stop. As if I had been born yesterday. My headphones were the first wall of deterrent I used against them. If they got through that wall, I’d change seats, then get off early and walk the rest of the way. I plugged the buds into my iPhone, noting that my service blinked off. I clicked around trying to restore the bars, but to no avail. It wasn’t like I had anyone to text or Facebook chat anyway. I tried to keep to myself.
The day had begun shitty, so I guessed it made sense that it would continue on that track. Mr. Heimenstein started my day off with his usual repetitive nagging, only today it was turned up to the max. Half the day he treated me more like a personal slave than his administrative assistant. And the other half I hid in the bathroom playing Candy Crush while nursing a Mountain Dew.
“Go get me a coffee, Miss Greyson.” “More sugar, Miss Greyson.” “Miss Greyson, please put a smile on.” I wanted to slug the balding jerk in the face and quit my job. Unfortunately, that wasn’t an option.
The job was all I had, and if I was truthful with myself, I was under-qualified to begin with. At twenty-four I only had a GED and two years at the local community college under my belt. Even that had been a feat to accomplish and bled my finances dry.
“Hey, miss.” Some guy tapped my shoulder from behind. I turned and pulled out one of my headphones. “You hearin’ what they been saying on the news?”
“No.” I wasn’t much of a news watcher. My early life had been crappy enough that I didn’t want to subject myself to more tragedy. Plus, I didn’t pay for the big name channels like CNN or MTV. I lived off my ten dollar a month Netflix subscription.
“We’re going to war.” The man’s brown eyes grew wide, like that was an exciting concept. His mouth formed an ‘O’ and I noticed a few teeth missing on the bottom.
“With who?” I asked back.
“Dunno. I guess California was attacked with a monster bomb, and now they think it could come for us.”
“Here? In Connecticut?” I hardly believed that.
“Sure. Why not?”
“Are you sure you weren’t just watching a movie?” I had to admit, from the way the guy’s eyes bugged out, he could’ve been crazy. I knew tensions had been high with some of the Middle Eastern countries lately—I didn’t completely remove myself from society--but I didn’t think we’d jump into a war on our own turf. Although, again, I didn’t watch the news.
“No movie, miss. Swear it. I was listenin’ on the radio.”

What Readers Have to Say...
"An absolutely heart wrenching read that shows us that at times no matter how much we hope, darkness will find its way to win. "
-Blogger's From Down Under for A Reliant Love
"So this book is the ultimate love story. I like how two ordinary people who is so different and still so alike in so many ways can overcome everything together."
-Angelica Berglund for For The Love of Hockey
"I never thought I would read a "zombie book", much less love one. The Last Legacy really surprised me. Even with the whole people-eating-people thing, it was a fantastic book"
-Melannie S for The Last Legacy
"I could not wait to start book two. If this book was as good as book one, then I knew I wouldn't be disappointed. It wasn't as good as book one...it was better. "
-Keely Retchloff for Finding Sam
"The powers, the love, the excitement, the drama kept me so enthralled. If you are looking for a GREAT series about true love and mythology, look no further... I wish I could rate 10 stars! Definitely recommend this whole series to all my book loving friends!"
-The Book Blog for A Curse Books Trilogy
"For the Love of Ash" by Taylor Lavati was a rare 5-star read for me. I honestly find many typical romances rather dull and predictable. This was not the case at all here; there was nothing average about the romance, overall storyline, and the long list of supporting characters."
-Summer's Book Blog for For The Love of Ash
"Wingless isn't what I would normally pick up and read, but thought I'd try it out and I am so glad I did. The characters and "worlds" she creates are done so well that you can actually picture them and feel like you are there right along with the characters."
