ARC Tours: Oppression by Jessica Therrien + The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson

Hi everyone! So today, I'm posting something new. Something I've never tried on my own, really. I'm one of the administrators of Pinoy Book Tours, a blog tour site dedicated to Filipino YA book bloggers. However, my partner and I decided to close Pinoy Book Tours due to problems. But this doesn't mean that we'll stop organizing tours.

I have two ARCs to tour:

Oppression by Jessica Therrien
Publication Date: February 28, 2012
Published by: ZOVA Books

Elyse knows what it means to keep a secret. She's been keeping secrets her whole life. Two, actually. First, that she ages five times slower than the average person, so that while she looks eighteen years old, she's closer to eighty. Second, that her blood has a mysterious power to heal. For Elyse, these things don't make her special. They make life dangerous. After the death of her parents, she's been careful to keep her secret as closely guarded as possible. Now, only one other person in the world knows about her age and ability. Or so she thinks. Elyse is not the only one keeping secrets. There are others like her all over the world, descendants of the very people the Greeks considered gods. She is one of them, and they have been waiting for her for a long time. Among so many of her kind, she should not be very remarkable--except for the prophecy. Some believe she will put an end to traditions, safeguarded by violence, which have oppressed her people for centuries. Others are determined to keep her from doing just that. But for Elyse, the game is just beginning--and she's not entirely willing to play by their rules.

The Lost Code by Kevin Emerson
Publication Date: May 22, 2012
Published by: Harper Collins


The ozone is ravaged, ocean levels have risen, and the sun is a daily enemy. But global climate change is not something new in the Earth’s history.

No one will know this better than less-than-ordinary Owen Parker, who is about to discover that he is the descendant of a highly advanced ancient race—a race that took their technology too far and almost destroyed the Earth in the process.

Now it is Owen’s turn to make right in his world what went wrong thousands of years ago. If Owen can unlock the lost code in his very genes, he may rediscover the forgotten knowledge of his ancestry…and that less-than-ordinary can evolve into extraordinary.

Thank you to Molly & ZOVA Books and Kevin for the copies! :)
