LUIS POV
I came to Nevada’s Memorial Day Cookout because what else was I going to do? Am I bored? Na, Nevada has way too many interesting people in her family for that; particularly that weirdo cousin of hers- Peanut, I think she said her name was. I don’t know why that child gives me the heebie-jeebies; but gotta admit she rattles me; and I don’t like being rattled or stirred.


I sat over near the fence next to the house with a couple of friendly labs. Maybe they were only being friendly to me, cuz they loved the occasional treat of meat I was passing them through the fence.

Jeda and Rain had made off to watch the fireworks alone, but I accidentally walked upon them over by the garden and from the looks of things, they were actually creating a few fireworks themselves. Moui and Nevada, well it was seriously getting hard to tell if they were faking it. I mean they weren’t doing that lovey-dovey thing that Jeda and Rain were engaging in; but they had a different kind of playfulness going on; it was almost like they were flirting with each other. He joked and teased her and she ran around chasing after him. In my opinion, Moui was enjoying this fake boyfriend job a little too much for my comfort; but hey that’s between him and Zai. So I found myself left out of our clique and sitting on the grass near the trees in her backyard, making friends with her neighbor’s two pooches.

I’m sitting there a little bored, but at least there’s food and the occasional chat with some of Nevada’s relatives or neighbors. Yea I know I could have gone home; but hey even at home with the exception of the wait staff I would have been alone with my mom M.I.A (Missing in Action) and my dad being overseas during this time of the year.

So I’m sitting there minding my business, IPod engaged with my ear buds in, and then I see that super strange cousin of Nevada. WT*? The girl is majorly WeIrD. I turn around because you know I try to avoid weird chicks and strange s*&t. From my perspective, she’s got a little of both going on with her. So I’m talking to Fifo and Fefo. Well I don’t know if that’s their name; but for now it’ll have to do.

“Ah,” I hear a scream. I turn around and yup that weirdo somehow between five feet from the trees and the fence she manages to trip over what; grass… and fall. I roll my eyes and go back to my music and my new pals.

“Ah,”

D**n I hear another scream. “F%**k,” I swear under my breath as I get up and go see what’s with this child.

“Need some help?” I ask a little irritated with myself for actually getting involved; for caring. That’s not me. I don’t give a f%**k. So why am I standing over this strange child offering my services?

“Yea, do you think you can find it?”

“Find…” My words trail off as I look down. Holy mother-of-Saint-Mary… That’s when I actually look at this child for the first time. How the h*ll did I miss that? WT*? Looking down at her I see her left foot is missing.
“I fell and it snapped off.”
S**&t I get this eerie feeling from her again. For the life of me I swear I feel really, nervous and uneasy about this situation and this child. I swear I want to bolt for a door, only there is no door, just a fence. I feel trapped. Nervously I swallow as I put my hands in my pockets.

“It’s okay, you don’t have to be nervous. It happens from time to time.” Then she laughs. Yea she’s weird alright, because when she laughed, I felt a strange stirring in my spirit. And I don’t like strange stirrings in my spirit. That means I’m feeling something. I don’t like feeling something; and I don’t want to feel something especially for this child.

From the obvious, she’s not even my type; not even in the ballpark with those thick rings of magnifying glasses that she calls glasses. I mean for real, this is the 21st century; here’s a clue: contact lens. Secondly she seems a little heavy; maybe I guess some guys would call her ‘thick’ but to me thick equals fat; and I like my chicks a little on the light side. Yea I’m sure she might look like Nevada but Nevada’s not my type either so who cares. Anyway the most important factor that makes her a BIG FAT ZERO in my book; she looks like a seriously boring bookworm who I’m sure that even SuperMan with the combined strengths of the Fabulous Four, couldn’t get her to open up her legs. And I like my girls like peanut butter- smooth, rich and easy to spread.

Don’t ask me why, but for some reason I see BIG RED FLAGS and WARNING LIGHTS FLASHING –bling-bling or beep- beep; every time I look at this child. I had purposefully kept my distance from her because I couldn’t understand why when I looked at her I kept getting this strange stirring inside of me. It felt like something moving in me.

“Are you going to stand there and stare all night?” I heard her voice asking.

“I’m sorry,” I apologized and then wanted to kick myself. Why am I apologizing to her? Did I make her lose her stupid leg?

“Ah over there,” I say as I spy it laying about four feet away from her in a small fountain of water. Seriously I wanna ask what did you do? How did your leg get so far away from you? But the more questions you ask, the more you get involved in other people’s problems. So I didn’t ask.

“Well are you going to go and get it for me? Or do you want to see me crawl? Or maybe hopping is your thing?” I hear her asking.

“Hey, why are you snapping off at me? I didn’t make you lose your stupid leg.” I push back because now she’s irritating me and I haven’t done anything to her.

“Never mind,” She says as she rise up on her hands and begins pulling herself towards the fountain where her prosthetic is. I close my eyes, and I swear I’m now talking to myself. I’m saying,

“Walk away man. Luis, just walk away now. Pick up your stupid feet and run-man-run. Run as fast as you can before it’s too late, you’ve still got time. Walk away Luis. Ready, set, GOoooo. Okay. 1-2-3… GOooo.”

So why aren’t my feet obeying? I stand there momentarily just staring at her crawling body, and that stirring that I’ve been feeling every time my eyes would happen upon her; that stirring has now left my spirit and I swear so help me God it has taken up new residence in my heart. As much as I don’t want to admit it, this strange weirdo child has somehow worked herself into my heart. I close my eyes and look heavenward asking God, ‘say it ain’t so… Just say it ain’t so.’ Hearing nothing, I exhale and then I allow my long strides to catch up to her; surpassing her and reaching the fountain first; retrieving her leg.

Everything appears to be perfect but she sees telltale signs that things may be too good to be true.

Her new family, the Morgans, are obsessed with water but forbid her to go near it. Water is everywhere she looks, surrounding her. Lake Superior is her new backyard and aquariums make up the inside walls of her new house. Oddly enough they seem to be having fish everyday for lunch.

The Sons of Thor, a group of five young men who, have sworn to protect humankind with their lightning bolts. They have an understanding with the Morgans, that they will leave them alone as long as they leave humans alone.

Now that the Morgans have taken a human into their home to raise as their daughter, the agreement is broken.

Eric, one of the Sons of Thor, has fallen in love with Cassandra. He wants to take her away from them but they have the law on their side and he can't admit who they are without admitting who he is.

The two groups will have to set their differences aside and work together to protect Cassandra from her father, who is at large and wants his daughter back.

Cassandra just wants a chance to be a normal child. She doesn't want to jeopardize the love of her family for a mere guy.

Daughter of the Oceans is told in first person from both Cassandra's and Eric's prospective.

My Trilogy is coming to a close this year... I have nearly finished the last book, before it goes through vigorous editing!

Therefore, the first book, Hybrid (The Evolution Trilogy), is now only EUR 1.14

Please, have a read... it has obtained 20 5 STAR reviews via the UK & US sites.

The most recent review in the US blew me away!

Thanks for having a look,
Vanessa Wester
British Author

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent first book, you'll be hooked May 19, 2013 By Gary Henson

Wester has a great first book in 'Hybrid'. If this is her first, we all have a lot to look forward to in the coming years as she brings out more of this series and hopefully other stories.

The opening is set at a University in England. Wester immediately drew me into the worlds of the two main characters, Steven and Caitlin, as well as some very well established secondary characters. I was invested in her creations right away.

Then Vanessa throws me a unique twist I was totally unprepared for, even though I had an inkling of what was eventually going to happen. It's not a simple 'young vampires in love' story by any means. There is a lot more to the core story and how it drives her characters forward. I was actually disappointed when it ended; I wanted more. And from the epilogue, I believe the next book will be even better!

As a further note, I read both 'Hunger Games' and 'Twilight' at the insistence of my family (all female). 'Hybrid' was much more engaging and believable than either of those books. I found 'Twilight' very shallow and simple. 'Hunger Games' is better but still just 'Gladiators' for kids. 'Hybrid' is a step above both these books and I would not be surprised to see it on film some time soon.

'Hybrid' is an engaging, fun, twisting, page turner that bodes well for Ms. Wester's writing career. I'm ready to grab books two!

Roger Weston meint:
The Recruiter
"This was a thriller from start to finish...Main character was a hero."

The Assassin's Wife
"Written to keep you on edge...Hard to put down. Makes you feel like you are with the people in the story!"

The Golden Catch
"Roger Weston uses the opening paragraph, even the first sentence, to grab your attention and hold on to you...Frank Murdoch is the assassin with a conscience and a heart."

Fatal Return
"Not only did I learn a little history but the book was a good mystery with enough characters to make it hard to put down."
