Celestra Series Book 1


Ethereal 

Skyla Messenger is a dead girl walking.

When her newly remarried mother moves the family to Paragon Island, to a house that is rumored to be haunted, Skyla finds refuge in Logan Oliver, a boy who shares her unique ability to read minds.

 Skyla discovers Logan holds the answers to the questions she’s been looking for, but Logan’s reluctance to give her the knowledge she desires leaves her believing Logan has a few secrets of his own.

Skyla’s bloodlines may just be connected to the most powerful angelic beings that roam the earth, and the more she knows, the more danger she seems to be in.

Suddenly an entire faction of earthbound angels wants her dead, at least she still has Logan, or does she?

Just finished your book... all in one sitting :) I really enjoyed it and look forward to book 2. Keep up the good work!

Addison Moore said...

Awesome Jenny! I'm thrilled you enjoyed it!

KajalK said...

BURN WAS AWESOME!!!! But, jeez, it's such a cliff hanger! And I'm like reeling right now!!!!!!!

Unknown said...

I have read all 3 books (When I should be doing finals), I am a bit older than your target audience. But I am totally hooked on them! Can't wait for Book 4. When are you thinking about releasing it? I am really rooting for Gage now! Can't wait to see if you decide to end it with Book 4 or just keep the series going! Great Job!

Addison Moore said...

Unknown - Thank you for reading! I am only partially sorry to have distracted you from finals. ;) I hope you knock those out of the park. =) Book 4 will most likely launch sometime in September. I have about 6 books planned in the series, or more if need be to tell the entire story. I hope you have a wonderful day! Good luck with those finals!

Kayla said...

I just read all 3 books in 2 days. I really have enjoyed them, it seems like everything is mimicking twilight lately so it was such a relief to read your books and experience something new. I can't wait for book 4!!

Addison Moore said...

Kayla - Thank you so much! I'm so thrilled to see you enjoyed them! I love hearing from readers, please feel free to stop by anytime. =) I'm trekking along in book 4 and hope to have the first draft done today!! Have a great day Kayla and thanks for reading!!!

hannah3930 said...

I absoloutely love your books! finshed them in a day stayed up very late! i am so excited for your 4th? any idea/season when it will be done? im so excited, but i love logan and skyla together :(

Addison Moore said...

hannah3930 - Holy smokes! One day!! You're a super reader and I am honored that you chose to read my books. =) Book 4 is all done. It's in the revisions phase, so I'm guessing around September. And I love that you like Logan and Skyla. Gage seems to be getting the lions share of attention, but clearly Skyla has mixed feelings. I really hope you'll enjoy book 4!!! =)

Tiffers08 said...

I just finished all three books in a 24 hour span and I am dying for the next!!!

Addison Moore said...

Tiffers08 - That blows me away! You are a super fast reader! Book 4 is on its way, I promise! =) I'm all done with it and just tinkering around with edits. I hope you like the next one as much as the last three. Thank you SO much for reading my books! Have a great rest of the weekend!

Tori.B said...

Loved this books. Every time she and Marshall are together, get goose bumps and I wish she would just go with him...though Gage is my runner up...Logan...I hate him at this point. I kind of hope she just drops everything with him (especially after the twist at the end of the third book). I am really looking forward to the fourth book! I can't wait. =]

P.S. Marshall is my favorite character if you couldn't tell. I love love love him! ^^

Addison Moore said...

Tori.B - Hi Tori! I'm glad you're enjoying the books! I really like Marshall, too. I have the most fun writing his scenes. I can't wait to share book 4 with you! Thank you so much for reading and have a good one!

emily w. said...

I stumbled upon Ethereal a few weeks ago, and somehow became completely addicted ;)

September can't come soon enough for book 4! And I'm glad to know there will be more after!!! Except, I'll have to somehow read book 4 reeeeally slowly, so waiting for the next isn't too painful.

(Also love that you are often fueled by Dr. Pepper)

Addison Moore said...

emily w. - I'm SO glad you're enjoying the series! I'm polishing book 4 and it shouldn't be too much longer. I hope you'll enjoy that one as well. And lol about my Dr. P addiction. Sometimes I'm convinced it's the only thing keeping me awake. ;)

whoamiandwhy said...

im 23 yrs old and i am ridiculously addicted to ur books i read all three in one day...i cannot wait until book 4 comes out! u are an awesome writer i get sucked into them immediately!

Addison Moore said...

whoamiandwhy - Thank you! You just totally made my day! I love hearing from readers, so please, don't be a stranger and stop by often! Book 4 is all done and getting its polish on. ;) Also, book 5 is outlined and begging to be unleashed onto my hard drive. Take care and have a great day!

Pal6mom said...

Ok, I just finished reading book 3 of the series. And Im already dying to read the next one! My kindle is probably on overload from all the time I've spent with it over the past two days reading books 1,2,and 3. I cant stop reading! I love every piece of it! Book 4 cant come soon enough!

Addison Moore said...

Pal6mom - I'm so glad you enjoyed them! Sorry for the overload on your Kindle. ;) Book 4 is all done and I'm carefully revising it right now. September is looking real good for its debut. And it warmed my heart that you loved every piece of it. Thank you so much for making me smile! =)

SFortuneTeller said...

OOmg i love your books. I cant stop reading them and im on vacation. Im so lost in my words i cant explain how good your books are. Ps i have a dr pepper addiction too! :) when will the next come out.? Love from chicago!

Addison Moore said...

SFortuneTeller - Thank you! I'm so honored to be a part of your vacation! =) Book 4 comes out sometime in September probably the middle. I'll give a heads up on my blog when it gets close. The reason I can't give a hard date is because Amazon and B&N upload at different times so its sort of unpredictable.

Thank you SOOOO much for reading!!! Stop by anytime! =)

SFortuneTeller said...

Im so thrilled you posted back! I just finished burn and i loved it sooo much! So many series go downhill after the 2:d book but this hasnt. Im sending an email to my whole 8th grade class about your amazing books. Its the first time in a while ive found a challenging yet amazing book to read. :)

Addison Moore said...

SFortune Teller - Wow thanks! I really appreciate the word of mouth! I'm super glad you enjoyed BURN. I hope you find the next one just as enticing. =) Have a great rest of the day!

SFortuneTeller said...

Would you mind following me on my blog? It's a tumblr called dancing skyscrapers. You can just google it. I'm not on a computer right now but I'll follow you when I can! Thanks again! You're an amazing writer!

Addison Moore said...

SFortuneTeller - I would if I could, but I'm not on that network. I'm sorry. But please stop by often!!!! =)

sephora0102 said...

What a cliffhanger!! I cant wait till the 4th book comes along. I have already read the first three in less then a week between two jobs and school. haha One of the few books I actually stay up late reading or while blow drying my hair. Keep up the amazing work! :)

Addison Moore said...

Sephora0102- thank you SO much for reading my books! And the fact you're so busy makes it all that more special. I hope you'll enjoy book 4. It picks up right where Burn left off. Have a good one! Stop by again!

Erin said...

Love your books, I swear I'm checking almost everyday for updates on book fours release. I've been reading other series while waiting for book four and I get so confused when I pick it up and start reading about characters that aren't skyla and the gang! I forget what I'm reading!It in no way compares to the celestra series. Any ideas on the book four title yet? Really hoping for a labor day weekend release:) ill keep checking in, keep up the amazing writing!

Addison Moore said...

Hi Erin! First, thank you for reading my books! I'm feeling pretty bad I haven't updated my blog, but the good news is I've finished book 4 and I'm sending it to my editor today. I'm not sure I can pull off a Labor Day release, but I'm betting it won't be too far after. Thank you again for reading and I'm so humbled by your kind words! Have a good one and please stop in again!!! :)

Mandy said...

I'm totally hooked, I started Book 1 on Monday and am already finished Book 3, I'm soo excited for Book 4!!!!!

Addison Moore said...

Mandy - Wow, thank you! You're fast! I'm super excited to get book 4 to you real soon!! I hope you'll enjoy it as much as the others. :) I think it will only be a couple more weeks!

jcalla said...

Thank you so much for writing such an entertaining, interesting, and fun story. I am a 30 year old veterinarian who recently began reading for pleasure and am so glad I did. After reading all three books on vacation last week I am hooked. I was thrilled to read that the story will continue through a few more books and can't wait for book 4. I truly appreciate the escape from reality, thanks again.

MBowers said...

Love the books. I read only part of the first one before I immediately told a friend that she had to read them so I could talk to her about it, and she loves it too. I am so looking forward to the fourth book.

Brandy Johnson said...

Wow..thats the only verbal explanation for this series. You made feel the dew drops of the frigid air in Washington, fall for Logan no Gage no Logan :), and befriend a whole crew of twisted characters. Thank you for the escape to Paragon that i never wanted to come back from. My bags sit waiting our next trip. Brandy

MJB said...

Hi When is the 4th book coming out...I'm dying to read it!!!

Addison Moore said...

(My apologies to all! I'm late in checking this thread!)

jcalla - I'm so glad you enjoyed the books on vacation! THank you so much for taking the time to read my stories. I hope you'll enjoy the books to come in the series as well!

MBowers- Thank you for reading and I can't thank you enough for spreading the word! I SO appreciate that. I hope you'll enjoy WICKED, coming soon!!!

Brandy Johnson- Your comment was so descriptive! I loved that! I hope you're ready to go back to Paragon because WICKED is being launch in about a week!

MJB - Hi! I'm thinking about launching WICKED book 4 in about a week. I'll post to the blog as soon as I hit publish. I'm really excited to let it go and I hope you'll enjoy it as much as the other books in the series!

AngelaB said...

I love this series, but I read so many books, that I can not remember who Pierce is! I am reading Wicked right now....

TK Knox said...

Okay I am a bit confused.....are you a self-publisher or are you represented??? I'm an aspiring author and would like to see how you are doing it all, and what you think of your way of publishing. I also just picked up "Etheral" via whispernet and I'm anxious to start it...but first I need to finish the three other books I already have going... :/ I am a bookoholic. lol

Addison Moore said...

AngelaB - Ack! Sorry. He's Holden's brother. The one with the fangs. ;)

Addison Moore said...

Hi TK Knox! I self-publish all my books, all by myself. I happen to have representation, but when I started the beginning of the Celestra series my agent was not involved. I think as far as writing goes, you could try it either way with rep or without. Personally, I think it's great to have a foot in both worlds. I think this is the new reality for writers. Good luck to you! And feel free to ask whatever you wish. My email is on the left sidebar under contacts. Happy writing!

Mandy said...

I just finished book 4, I got so into it I read it in 2 days and now I can't wait for the next one!! :)

Addison Moore said...

Hi Mandy! I'm so glad you enjoyed WICKED! If you're interested you an join me on Tuesdays over at FB where I'll be giving a little tease of my next book in the series, VEX. There's a link to my FB on the left side bar of the blog. I hope you enjoy the teasers! =) Have a great rest of the weekend.

Sabrina said...

I am so addicted to your books Addison, I started reading Ethereal at the end of last week and couldn't stop reading!! I am completely and totally hooked and cannot wait for Vex to come out!

Addison Moore said...

Hi Sabrina! I'm so glad you're enjoying the books! VEX is coming along nicely and is still slotted for release sometime in November. In the meantime if you're interested you can check out my facebook page where I'm leaving teasers of VEX every Tuesday until the book comes out. And if you already have, I hope you're enjoying those, too! Stop by anytime! =)

Shanda said...

I found your books by accident while trying to find something on kindle to download. What a stroke of luck that was. I was able to read your books from the beginning and am working on book 5 now. I haven't gotten so caught up in a series for a couple of years. I have a hard time getting anything else done though because I keep thinking about what might happen next. You are an amazing writer and I can't wait to see what you come out with in the future. I have recommended your books to all my friends. Thank you so much for creating the world of Paragon for all of us to enjoy.

Jodi Glasser said...

Very much enjoying your series. I happened upon it by recommendation from Amazon when I downloaded the last book from another series I was reading on my Kindle. I'm so happy I tried it out because now I'm hooked. ") Once I completed Ethereal I went ahead and purchased the rest of them all at once. I am now on Chapter 2 of Book 4 and can't wait to read 5 and 6. I will also be anxiously awaiting the release of book 7. Thank you for such a great series.

~Jodi

Addison Moore said...

Shanda! Ack! I lost this thread somehow. Sorry my response is sooo late! I hope you enjoyed VEX and EXPEL since then as well! HUGE thank you for the shout outs to all of your friends! I cannot tell you enough how thankful I am for that. I'm thrilled you're enjoying the series. :)

Addison Moore said...

Jodi Glasser - Hi Jodi! I'm so glad you found the books! I hope you're enjoying WICKED. Hopefully by the time you finish EXPEL I'll have TOXIC up for you. Please stop in often! Nice to hear from you! :)
