THE CRUELTY BY S. BERGSTROM 

29102898

When her diplomat father is kidnapped and the U.S. Government is unable to help, 17 year-old Gwendolyn Bloom sets off across the sordid underbelly of Europe to rescue him. Following the only lead she has—the name of a Palestinian informer living in France—she plunges into a brutal world of arms smuggling and human trafficking. As she journeys from the slums of Paris, to the nightclubs of Berlin, to the heart of the most feared crime family in Prague, Gwendolyn discovers that to survive in this new world she must become every bit as cruel as the men she’s hunting.

Ashley’s Adventures on the Internet | #12 “Rated R”

 

BOOK GOOGLING-2

I take search terms people use that-2

 

*disclaimer: I have not altered these phrases. They are exactly as they appear on my stats page. These are search terms of real people*


Todays Ashley’s Adventures on the Internet took a turn for the strange. Now I am not one to judge others, but I am curious what exactly these people were looking for and how it came to my blog. I guess we will never know. 

real young teen taboo daughter sex forbidden uncensored

I was a little stumped on how even to respond to this. My first thought was call the police and check my local sex offenders list. Then I jumped to hysterical laughter because they must have been looking for something completely different then my blog and I just wish I could have seen their reaction when this is what they found. My advice to this person is read what you are clicking on and best of luck to you on your R rated adventures on the internet.  P.S.A: The internet is a dark and scary place and so very easily it can become confusing. Watch your privacy settings😉

how will i get emoji lovestruck

Well my first question to you would be WHY? How does one go about getting emoji lovestruck. Does someone hit you over the head with the big plush yellow smily with hearts for eyes? Also why would you google search such a question. Life is hard sometimes I know, but I think with some conductive reasoning one could solve the problems of getting emojis on their phone/electronic devices.

2016 hole.com down

Well this lead you somewhere you probably were not looking for and for that I am sorry, but I am not sorry that your search makes no sense at all. People need to learn how to use google/yahoo searches. It really isn’t rocket science. I really hope this was an innocent search as well and not the same person from the first search:)

Life altering reality, hidden in plain sight.
Ralph has a problem. The Grand Council of Atlantis, the council who rules the twelve hominid tribes, has chosen his apprentice for him. This unusual move has one obstacle. She doesn’t know what it means to be Atlantean.

Cerita Guzman is the oldest child in a struggling, single parent home. She doesn’t have time for world shattering reality to interfere with life. She has work, school, siblings, her mom, the house and now, of all things, Atlantis wants her time too. How is that even possible?

James has lived among the homo-sapiens, on the surface, for most of his life. He’s training though, to serve his people in Atlantis. His heart is torn when his master knight requests him to bring in the young woman selected by the Grand Council to train with him. She’s in a lot of his classes. She’s beautiful. She’s human.

 

When Atlantis calls, he listens.

As Cerita resists the call to serve Atlantis, James must find a way to help her accept the truth about the world around her, about herself. He does. He forces her to activate her internal nanites. She’s forced to accept whole new hominid species exist. If that’s not enough, she’s also forced to accept she’s one of them, when her nanites come to life, and she opens a wormhole into space.

Join Cerita, James, and Ralph on the first adventure into the world of Atlantis. Knight’s of the Immortals is a Young Adult Scifi – Adventure that’s loved by readers of all ages. Knight’s Apprentice is free. Download it so you can start reading it today.
