Alexa's Adytum by Jessica Cage Blog Tour


The queen is trapped inside her own mind, her Serve has been captured by Darkness, and the Navare are launching an attack in just a matter of days.
Lamar and Layal must lead the vampire masses in a battle against evil. It won't be an easy task. The Navare are nasty beasts, vampires given in to the call of Darkness. They have strength in numbers, a leader who is spiritually connected to their once queen Alecia, and a ton of twisted demons on their side.
For the vampires, its either find a way to wake Alexa or stand and fight. Which path should they choose when either may lead to their demise?

Review:  ~by April

     This is a wonderful Paranormal Vampire book.  Do yourself a favor and read ‘Revitalized’ (book 1), and ‘Guidance of Rasmiyah’ (book 2) first.  It is well worth it.  These books flow together wonderfully and I was thrilled to read them.  This book switches between POVs, which was nice to get a fuller look into all that was happening.  This is loaded down with tons of action, some love and sprinkled throughout with drama.  It will keep you involved. By the way, I LOVE MIRRORS!
     When Vampire Queen Alexa has saved Layla, Jasmine, and the crew, she becomes trapped.  Losing her Serve, Lacal, to the Navare has all shut her down completely.  Since she is ‘away’ everything runs into chaos.  Now it is up to those she has saved to either stand and fight the evil or find a way to bring her back.
     The Vampires are in for one helluva fight with the Navare.  The evil Navare have tons of demons and the strength of so many on their side.
     Can Lamar and Layal save their Queen?  Can her Serve be saved?  Will they have to stand and try to battle all the evil without Alexa?  You will have to read this to find out.
     I loved how strong I realized Alexa was.  She was capable of more than I first gave her credit for.  My favorite character had to be Jasmine however.  When Nana deposited her with Alexa and Jasmine was telling her what was going on….. hehehehe.
     I am giving this book FOUR strong stars.  I did enjoy it.  Please tell me it is not over?  I feel like there should/could be more.  Thank you.
Layal: “What is up with you High Arcs and the ‘A’ names? You’d think you would have run out by now.”
Jemal: “Your eyes.  It may help you to get your facts straight Ganger.  Jocelyn never looked at me like that!”
Jemal: “So she isn’t lost, she’s just on a mental vacation?”

“Where is Lacal?” Alexa asked, but her question wasn’t answered by a verbal response from Rasmiyah. Instead, her world, the one she had created to protect herself, provided the answer.
A mixture of hot and cold air moved violently past them. About two feet in front of her it formed what first looked like a patch of fog but then cleared to reveal a screen, like looking into a crystal ball. She saw Lacal, a frozen image taken from her own memory. Now she remembered leaving him behind and remembered the choice that she was forced to make. It was the choice he wanted her to make, but it made it no easier for her to do. She had left him behind in the Navare’s lair in order to save the others. She had turned her back on him, and let him down.
“How could I do that to him?” Alexa sobbed and shook her head.
“You didn’t do anything.” The ground beneath them began to shake, there wasn’t much time before Rasmiyah would be pushed out. It had taken her much more energy than she thought it would just to get in. Alexa’s barrier was a strong one. So strong that Rasmiyah could only be there because Alexa had invited her inside. After Jazz’s visit shook Alexa up, her delicately created environment was on overload trying to keep everyone and everything out.
“Yes, I did do something, I left him there. I just left him there by himself! How could I do that to him? He would have never left me behind!” Alexa stepped away from Rasmiyah and wrapped her arms around herself. She wanted more than anything for it to be Lacal holding her instead.
“You had to get the others out. He knew that what you were doing was for the best.” Rasmiyah placed her hand gently one Alexa’s shoulder.
“Still, I have to get him back. I cannot just leave him there! I cannot believe I left him there this long.” Alexa shook her head and trembled beneath Rasmiyah’s hand.
“So, what is stopping you from getting him back Alexa?” Rasmiyah calmly challenged her.
“I am trapped here!” Alexa screamed and the ground began to rumble and a crack extended into the sea. The waves crashed against the shore and filled the voids that were created with warm salty water.
“You are not trapped Alexa, you have chosen not to leave.” Rasmiyah still managed to sound relaxed.
“I want to leave. Isn’t that choosing? Isn’t wanting to leave enough?” The sky became crowded with dark clouds; loud thunder shook the world as they crashed against each other.
“Well, if it is, maybe you don’t really want it, because you are still here. Wanting something, and choosing something is not the same thing Alexa.” Rasmiyah spoke softly, her voice carrying over to Alexa on a breeze even though the sound of the thunder tried to drown her out.
“I don’t understand what you mean.” Alexa had begun to cry, tears drenched her face. This was not the first time Rasmiyah had said those words to her. It frustrated her because after all she had been through; she was no closer to understanding the meaning behind the words.

“I know child, and you won’t be able to leave here until you do.”

About Jessica Cage:
I am a young mother who at one point gave up on my dream to be a writer because everyone told me there was nothing in it for me. After having my son, I questioned, how can I inspire him to follow his dreams, reach for the stars, if I do not do it myself. Yes I have made some mistakes, slip ups and all, (some very embarrassing), but instead of tucking my tail between my legs and running away to hide, I stepped back a bit, cleaned up my act and now I am hitting the pavement hard. I am inviting all who are interested to come along with me on my journey as I seek to grow and improve as a woman, a mother, and a writer.
