BITTERSWEET by Tyffani Clark Kemp

From Girls Heart Books an introduction to Bittersweet, Book One in the Kaveesh Series by Tyffani Clark Kemp.  For Mature YA's, a multi genre, dystopian sci-fi.  The book is due to release on October 15th...follow links for more information.

Title- Bittersweet
Series- The Kaveesh #1
By Tyffani Clark Kemp
Publication Date- October 15th

She'd reconciled her life without him. His return would be Bittersweet.

Welcome to Mother Cora’s, where the offspring of the Kaveesh learn to coexist with humans.
One hundred and twenty years ago, the Kaveesh came to Earth to save the dying planet from a disease that gorged itself on anything in its wake. Buildings crumbled to dust. Soil and plant life were consumed. Two-thirds of the Earth’s population perished.
The only thing the Kaveesh asked in return was to help save their dying race. Breeding programs began and the half-breeds were born.
Lirabel is a half-breed and an overachiever. Despite a few setbacks, she’s scheduled to graduate early from Mother Cora’s and become the Half-breed Ambassador to the Humans.

Enter Jonas. They were best friends until he broke her heart and disappeared five years ago. Now, he’s back, but Lirabel couldn’t care less. There are more important things to worry about…
Like finishing her last year of school and becoming ambassador. Or the half-bred students losing control of their Kaveesh strengths who are being sent into quarantine. Or how the breeding programs are still up and running.

And somehow, Jonas’ bittersweet return is connected to it all.


About the Author-
Tyffani Clark Kemp might be the quietest person in the room, but that just means she’s probably the biggest freak too. She is a multi-genre author with a gift for the written word and a desire to help all Indies reach their full potential. In 2012, she and her best friend Kimberly Fudge started SideStreet Cookie Publishing for authors who want to remain independent, but don’t have the time or the knowledge to do it all themselves. From the age of eleven she dedicated her life to writing and making sure she was good at her craft. Now, she passes that knowledge on to others. Her friends would describe her as determined and giving. She may be quiet, but she always has a story to tell.

GENRE:  Middle grade fanstasy

Miranda is plagued by vivid dreams of a another world. A world of castles, forests, Ice Caves, and dragons. She goes to a bookstore to see why she is having these visions, and learns she is a Dream Walker. Miranda heeds the call of need, and travels to Mystica. For years, the wizards have been trapped in stone. Now, one curious boy has released Midnight. Midnight gathers an army, and prepares for war. Miranda needs to find the white wizard Lightning and free from his stone prison. Can Miranda free Lighting and save Mystica?


The spell book was worn and torn at places. It was musty and full of mildew. Yet, Midnight could make out one spell. This spell was all he needed. The spell trapped people’s souls in stones. 

Midnight traveled to Mystica looking for the ingredients for his spell. It made him giddy and somewhat impatient to have the spell he needed. Being impatient, he decided to travel in smoke form. It made for far faster journeying. A trail of  black smoke zipped through the air of Mystica. 

His first landing was a waterfall on the west side of the Dwarf  Mountains. Materializing into his wizard form, he landed softly on the crevice of the mountain. His smoke form would not help him here, so he was forced to travel the rest of the way on foot. Precariously, he made his way across the slippery rocks to the back of the waterfall. Blue water splashed his robe, face, and hands. The sound almost deafened him, and drowned out everything else. Levitating himself to the other side, he only managed to hit his head on the cliff. As he rubbed his head, he landed with a splash in the cool water. He swam, paddling madly with his arms to fight the currents to the cave at the end of the waterfall.  Climbing out of the water, he reached the sandy terrain of the ledge. He shook the water off his robe, and gathered five stones. One stone for each of the wizards he wanted to entrap. The stones were clear, almost opaque. They fit in the palm of his hand, and were smooth and round. Polished by the water. 

Triumph filled him! Mystica would be his! A laugh, maniac in nature, escaped his lungs. Morphing into cloud form, he continued on to the next ingredient. He needed fire flowers next. Fire flowers were flowers with orange petals and a red center. They had double petals that resembled the two suns on Mystica.   They grew on the heart of an island in the middle of Lily Lake. Lily Lake breamed with seaweed, algae, and green moss. It was more of a swamp than a lake. Fish swam beneath the green slime, often biting each other. The island itself had sharp green thorny plants all around the perimeter. In the very center, was a clearing with the fire flowers. Midnight came down from his smoke form on the island, snatching his robe on the thorny plants.  Blood trickled down his arm from the thorns. He barely noticed. The blood dripped down into the water, making the fish hungry. Grabbing his cape from its entanglement, he strode purposely forward. Ripping the fire flowers from their beds, he added them to his potion bag. Fish from the water jumped from the lake and started attaching him. Swarms of fish with sharp fang like teeth came toward him. They bit into his skin leaving red marks and spilling more blood. The blood called more and more fish from the water. Surrounded by attacking fish, Midnight said a spell:
Clouds of dark
Clouds of black
Take these fish back!

GENRE: Fantasy/YA
After losing everything, all seventeen-year-old Thea wanted was to be a normal teenager. Instead, she was attacked by a mysterious creature she thought only existed in fairy tales. Now thrown into the unknown realm of Faey, Thea is forced to determine the difference between reality and fantasy, in a world ruled by a dark elite and a society wracked by intolerance and prejudice. With the support of her new friends and a mysterious dark haired, blue-eyed guardian watching her every move, Thea will discover that when it comes to Faey, nothing is what it seems. Will her courage and desire to save this new world from darkness be enough? Or will Thea be the next victim to fall to the dark whispers of fate..

I awoke to an incessant bleeping and hushed whispers of ‘So 
young’ and ‘Such a shame’ and it was at that point I knew both 
of my parents were dead. Upon opening my eyes, a numb feeling 
began to take over as I realised I was in the local hospital with 
doctors giving me sympathetic looks and calling me sweetie 
whilst a nurse asked me who they should contact. That was an 
easy answer: no one. My parents had both been only children 
and their parents, my grandparents, had died when they were 

There was no one else.

A couple of hours later Eli turned up with his family. Who’s 
Eli? Explaining him isn’t exactly one of the easiest things to 
do, as our relationship was complicated to say the least. 
Foremost, he’s my best friend, even with his over-protective 
nature, which I think stems from his need to look out for me, 
kind of like how I imagined a brother would for a sister. This 
would make sense as I’ve always been really close to his family, 
who seem to have been in my life for forever. Yes, it was helped 
by the fact they lived in the same neighbourhood as us and that 
he went to the same high school as me; but more than that Eli 
seems to have been there at all my major life events. From losing 
my first tooth, to falling off my bike and then taking me for walks 
in the forest when I needed the company, he’s always been there, 
someone I could rely on.  And again on this eventful day, he 
turned up knowing exactly what I needed: for someone not to say 
anything, but instead just to sit with me. He completely ignored 
his mother’s sobs as he only had eyes for me, walking quickly 
over to my bed and wrapping his arms around me. He pulled me 
onto his lap and once again I seemed to fit perfectly as he 
cocooned me, wrapping his arms around my back, his warmth 
spreading through me like a drug. We were both seniors but he 
looked older, probably due to the growth spurt he had had over 
the summer. At six foot one he was a whole seven inches taller 
than me and had these tanned muscular arms that were freakishly 
strong, probably due to his part-time job as a labourer on the local 
farm. His dark blond hair spent most of the time being brushed 
back from his forehead, as it always fell into his eyes, but it 
always really suited him that way. One of the things I loved most 
about him were his eyes, which sparkled different shades of 
emerald green and I swear just looking at them let me know how 
he was feeling. On that day they had been a dull green.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I live in Surrey, England, a short walk from the beautiful Windsor Park, with my husband Richard and our two gorgeous children Noah and Olivia. For me, writing is nothing short of an addiction and I often find myself sneaking out to my writing shed for just a few minutes, which can often turn into hours of pure, unadulterated bliss catching up with my characters and continuing their story. In-between writing, I teach in a primary school where there’s never a dull moment! I will also often be found Kindle in hand, reading a wide variety of genres but with YA fantasy and paranormal romance at the forefront of my reading list. Although I’m currently writing the second book in the Driel trilogy, other characters involving all things fantasy, paranormal and YA romance are jockeying for position, wanting me to write their story next, so watch this space! It is such a privilege to share my stories with you the reader. Thank you enough for taking the time to find out more about me.

When a wall of their cave hideout crumbles, three boys discover a skeleton, clutching a treasure map. They set off to trace the story of an old murder, but stumble into a modern crime, and confront ancient Chinese dragons.



Sam inched forward and aimed the flashlight inside. “Uh oh.” 

“What?” Joey gasped.

“It’s a ... well, kind of a ... skeleton.”

“Awww,” Roger screamed, ran, tripped, and sprawled on his stomach.

“It can’t hurt you, Roger,” Sam said. “Come on. 

Take a look.” One thing about being in a family of paleontologists, you got used to bones.

Roger quick-shook his head. “No. No. No.” 

Joey took three slow steps and stood next to Sam. “Sweet. A dead guy. Man, let’s get out of here.” 

“Hold this.” Sam handed Joey the flashlight. “Keep the light on him, okay?” 

The skeleton was partly covered by a tattered shirt and pants. Bony fingers clutched a wooden box with a piece of thin metal about two inches long on its top. 

Reaching inside, Sam tried to pry the box from the skeleton’s grasp, but the finger bones fell through the rib cage and clattered to the bottom of the chest. The box lodged between the ribs. 
The light jiggled in Joey’s hand. “Come on Sam, enough already.” 

Sam picked up the thin metal piece from the top of the box, and held it under the light. One end of it was bent at a right angle. A faded red tassel looped through the other end. 

“Here, take this.” Sam handed Joey the strange object, then reached inside the chest and gripped the box. He lifted it slow and easy. It could be a trap. It could be dangerous. His hands twitched and the edge of the box caught on a rod that held the chest lid open. He barely snatched the box free before the lid crashed down. 

What sounded like an angry dragon exploded around the cave. 

The walls trembled, and the floor heaved under foot.
