#Spotlight & #Giveaway :: Harmony Run Series by Sarah Elle Emm

Rare glimpses of birds are the only reminder of the freedoms Rain Hawkins once had. Now segregated into a mixed-race zone within the United Zones of the Authority, under tyrannical rule of President Nicks, Rain is forced to endure the bleak conditions set upon her. The possibility of a way out arises when Rain discovers an organized resistance called The Freedom Front, and learns that she, along with many other multi-racial people, has special abilities. Determined to overcome her situation, Rain sets out on a mission with the resistance that will fill her life with wonder, romance, and the undying hope for a better world.

Prismatic Book Trailer

Still enslaved in a mixed-race zone within the United Zones of the Authority, Rain Hawkins is part of a secret resistance preparing to take on the tyrannical President Nicks before plans to kill the mixed zones across UZTA are executed. When unsettling dreams and a mysterious voice begin to haunt the dark nights, Rain fears someone more powerful than she has discovered the resistance and their secret abilities. With a known Authority spy on her heels, and her boyfriend, Jabari, suddenly acting strange, Rain doesn’t know who to trust and if the voices calling to her are friend or foe. As conditions across all of the zones get worse and the stakes rise, Rain embarks on a quest for answers that will put the people she cares about most in more danger or take them one step closer to the truth and their eventual freedom.

Facts about Opalescent

Opalescent is the sequel to Prismatic and is part of the Harmony Run Series, a four-part young-adult fantasy series published by Winter Goose Publishing.
The star of the series, seventeen year old Rain, is still trying to keep her boyfriend, Jabari, a secret from her mom.
In addition to the teenagers in The Freedom Front, (the secret resistance trying to organize against the tyrannical ruler,) there are plenty of NEW characters in book two!  I can't wait for readers to meet some of them...especially Bhavna...and Aleela...and...Oh, wait a second!  I can't reveal everything here!
Opalescent is a bit 'heavier' than Prismatic...Hhmm, I think I will leave it at that. ;-)
Since, I don't want to spoil the story for any potential readers, I think I'll just stop sharing fun facts.  I can say that during the writing of Opalescent, I relied on my chocolate and coffee addictions to help me stay on task late at night!

  2. Hi! First of all, thank you, Debdatta, for this lovely feature!

    To answer the question...

    I grew up traveling to St. Croix every year for a few weeks. Later, I moved there with my husband for one year. We had a restaurant in Christiansted. After that, we lived in St. Thomas for another year, where we ran The Old Stone Farmhouse restaurant in Mahogany Run. We left St. Thomas in 2010. Beautiful islands. We also visited St. John often. :-)
