Author Review: A.J. Tupps

Over the last year my reviews drifted away from Young Adult and more toward romance and mainstream fiction. I'm excited to present to you for the next few months a couple of new YA author's I've been introduced to.
A.J. Tupps work, by way of The World Of Ink Network., Is the story of a 16 year old girl named Selena.

Tupps explains her book "Shadow Tears" as a group of stories she told her children while they helped her husband through a health crisis and recovery. It was a dream she'd chased for years and thanks to the love and support of her family...she made it come true.
Tupps uses elements of fantasy, history and fiction to create three separate worlds in which her lead character resides. Elements of telekinesis, telepathy, and weather manipulation bring an exciting world to life for her characters to explore. As Selena learns of her past, her powers, and the many people who fill her usually loving but limited family, she grows more powerful, uses her deep love of her family and friends to direct her efforts and discovers her purpose in a complex and dangerous world of guardians, shape shifters, and visionaries. I like historical based stories and the elements of history mixed with fantasy in this story were a surprise as I read. "Shadow Tears" is an interesting and complex story with vibrant characters, exciting scenes and deep emotional journies.
