BLITZ: The Last Rising by Rachel Firasek (With Giveaway & Interview)

After paying two millennia’s penance to Osiris, world‐weary Phoenix
Ice has had enough. Saving souls without any hope for her own
redemption isn’t how she imagined spending eternity.
Fed up, she decides her next death will be her last. But when she
sacrifices her own life for a sexy Texan in a catastrophic plane crash,
she has no idea the consequences will be so great…or that she’ll
end up back in his life for her next assignment.
Now that Turner Alcott has survived the worst, finding a wife and
mother for his son matters more than ever before. When the mysterious
Ice comes into his life, Turner knows she’s the one—but
love is the last thing Ice wants. If he wants to win her heart, Turner
must teach Ice how to forgive herself, and prove that love is the
ultimate sacrifice.

AUTHOR BIO:
Rachel Firasek grew up in the south and despite the gentle pace, she harassed life at full steam. Her curiosity about mythology, human nature, and the chemical imbalance we call love led her to writing. Her stories began with macabre war poems and shifted to enchanted fairy tales, before she settled on a blending of the two.
Today you’ll find her tucked on a small parcel of land, surrounded by bleating sheep
and barking dogs, with her husband and children. She entertains them all with her
wacky sense of humor or animated reenactments of bad 80’s dance moves. She’s intrigued by anything unexplained and seeks the answers to this crazy thing we call life.

Q: Can you tell readers a little bit about yourself and what inspired to write in this particular genre?
I’m a thirty-ish Texas native who corals two teens and husband that puts all of my heroes to shame. I have sprawling spread of Mesquite trees and sheep in a hidden country community of Central Texas. I’ve always been an avid horror fan and was always drawn to cartoons with super heroes. Why wouldn’t I writer in Paranormal Romance?
Q: What is the most interesting thing you have physically done for book related research purposes?
I hate research, so the better question would be what is the most interesting thing I’ve done to avoid it? (
Q; Do you have any weird writing quirks or rituals?
I can’t write if I have email in my inbox. Yes, my name is Rachel, and I’m an email addict
Q: Do you write in different genres?
I’ll write in any genre that a story wants to be told. Currently I’m published in both paranormal romance and erotic romance.
Q: When did you consider yourself a writer?
At about the age of 12. When I started writing papers for my friends for money. Shhh… I didn’t just say that. ( I’ve learned my lesson though and now I understand that ghostwriting for term papers isn’t quite the same.
Q: What are your guilty pleasures in life?
I like an Italian Margarita on occasion and cheesecake. Those are my two faves. I’ll seriously hide to eat that second helping of NY Cheesecake.
Q: Other than writing, what are some of your interests, hobbies or passions in life?
Hmmm… I like to fish, read, play ball with my kids out back. I also enjoy playing card and board games, but only if my hubby will let me torment them while we play. If I have to be good, it’s a no-go. :)
Q: What was the last amazing book you read?
The Relunctant Dom. It had me cry like 9 times. So unbelievably sad. I want to write emotion that good.
Q: Where is your favorite place to read? Do you have a cozy corner or special reading spot?
I read in my bathtub. It makes reading on my e-reader a little dangerous, but it’s the only place I can go without a hubs or kids bothering me.
Q: What can readers expect next from you?
I’m brainstorming a very secretive YA for the first of next year. We’ll see.
Q: Where can readers find you on the web?

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
