Book Description:

He’s been locked away his entire life.

He dreams of freedom.

The only way he can accomplish his goals is by breaking free of the chains tying him to a dark past and gloomy existence. But there’s one catch. He’s not human.

And he’s never set foot outside his jail.

Devoted to saving his peers as well as his own life, he sets out to find the one person that can help him achieve his objectives. He knows where she will be and what she will look like, but what he doesn’t anticipate is the fact he finds himself caring for the girl whose life he’s put at risk, more and more each day.

He has no name.

He has only known hatred and violence before her.

However, she will teach him to have faith in humanity, even if she can’t trust him.

Together they will embark on a journey to bring down a corrupt system responsible for the loss of many innocent lives. But when he finds his feelings compromised, can he still move on knowing that doing so will put an end to the life she once knew? How far is he willing to go to be free?

Excerpt 1:

The guards run from room to room in an attempt to place the breach in security. They use their radios to contact every floor and ask where the break has occurred. They receive a reply within moments, confirming nothing is amiss. They will not find a breach because there is none. It was set off as a means of distraction. Samuel approaches and lands a hand on my right shoulder. He calls to me, but I ignore him. He pulls on my shoulder. I resist.

Now, Tiger!

I open my eyes, turn slightly to my right, and slam my elbow into his face. Samuel falls on his knees, clutching his bleeding nose. I bolt. Using what little strength my body has managed to retain, I run toward the glass window at the end of the hall. The pain is all but forgotten as adrenaline kicks in.

Bullets whizz past me, hitting the walls, light fixtures, doors, and the tiled floor. Most fly over my head. One grazes my left arm, but I use the momentum I’ve gained to propel my body onward.

Gerard yells to the men to stop me, but it’s too late. I pick up speed, pushing my injured body beyond its current capabilities. My target is in sight. I lock my keen eyesight on the window, and crash into it a few heartbeats later. The glass panel breaks apart instantly. I freefall for about a second before maneuvering my body so I’ll land on my feet. Shards of glass accompany me on my way down.

About the Author:

Kristy Centeno is the author of the Secrets of the Moon saga and Keeper Witches series.

She has always had a passion for books and after years of being an avid reader, she decided to transform her desire to write into a reality and thus, her first novel was born. When she’s not busy taking care of her five children or holding down the fort, she finds time to sit and do what she loves the most: writing.

Where are you from?
I was born in Puerto Rico, but have spent the majority of my life in the USA.
Tell us your latest news?
My latest work will be released on March 19th. Deliverance is about a couple struggling to survive amidst a world where humans and the creatures of the night come together in ways unimaginable to both.
When and why did you begin writing?
I have been creating my own stories since I learned how to put pencil to paper, but began to professionally write five years ago. It's been a learning experience since the beginning but I love it.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
When my first project was published.
What inspired you to write your first book?
My love for books and what I can create when I set my mind to it. I love crafting my own works of fiction, creating characters that are unique in their own way.
How did you come up with the title?
I wanted the title to define the actual book. To tell a story in itself. Being that the male lead in the book is seeking to free himself of a lifelong enslavement, I thought Deliverance suited the book very well.
Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Appearances can be deceiving.
How much of the book is realistic?
It's fiction so not much of it is realistic except for the locations where the main characters travel to, which are actual places.
Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Not with this book. Sometimes I incorporate some traits of close family and friends to a certain character, but this time was different.
What books have most influenced your life most?
Every great book I have ever read influenced my life one way or another. They inspired me to continue writing.
What book are you reading now?
I just finished Masquerade by Hannah Fielding.
Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Because of my busy schedule I have not had a lot of time to read lately, but I'm always open to suggestions.
What are your current projects?
Midnight, book 2 of the Forgotten Divinity series, is due to be released in December and I'm working on book 3 right now. I'm also developing the plot for book 6 of the Secrets of the Moon saga.
What would you like my readers to know?
That I'm grateful to anyone who takes the time to read this interview and I'm happy to be a guest on this blog. Have a fantastic day. Happy reading to all.
