Holy cow, your covers are just AWSEOME! Congratulations! Whenever I pub one, I like to say – Another one bites the dust!

Way to go!

Melissa says March 22, 2012

It is available now on Amazon…I just bought it. So I am off to start reading!! Thank you for writing such amazing stories.

The VomBaurs says March 22, 2012

What the heck! I can't find it on amazon! I've been updating for hours with NO success! Help!

Adam and Amanda Daniels says March 22, 2012

Suzanne Hand says March 22, 2012

The link worked beautifully thank you!

Danielle says March 22, 2012

I can't find it for my nook. Is it out yet on Barnes & Noble?.

AddisonMoore says March 22, 2012

Danielle – I'm so sorry, they're still processing. I have no idea why it takes that long but for sure its a lesson learned for me. I'll have to load an entire day before for Nook in the future. Maybe Amazon as well. But since you've so patiently waited I would love to send you a signed postcard of BURN. If you would like it, feel free to email me an address where you would like it sent.

Addison thank you so much for being an awesome author. I really love escaping into your books. Can't wait to read Expel. I sent an email with my address. Thanks.

Mrsnglriousbstrd says March 22, 2012

OMG! I'm soo excited! I feel like its been too long! I need to catch up with Skyla! :0) So do we have to wait till tomorrow to get it on the nook? I've been checking back on barnes and noble like a fiend! Cant wait!!

John says March 22, 2012

I tried your link, after having no luck on amazon, and I was able to find it, but after downloading I have yet to recieve it, and can no longer locate it on amazon…. Amazons really dropped the ball on this one…btw, im not usually into this sort of read, but you hooked me with book one and I havent been able to stop since… Hopefully amazon can get this fixed asap becaise I cant wait to read Expel.

You truely are an amazing author
One of a kind!

AddisonMoore says March 22, 2012

Hi John! I'm so sorry about that! Here's a link I found that can lead you to a phone number (Actually they call you). They're very good about customer support in this manner; https://www.amazon.com/gp/help/contact-us/general-questions.html?ie=UTF8&browse_node_id=508510

Thank you so much for your kind words about my series! I'm thrilled you're enjoying the books. I really would love it if you would let me know how things resolved themselves. I would appreciate it. I hope it's already been delivered to your Kindle!

    John says March 23, 2012

    Your very welcome, and thank you, its all been figured out and is sitting on my kindle waiting for me to read.

AddisonMoore says March 22, 2012

Loree Huebner – Thank you Loree! I love your support. Miss you!

AddisonMoore says March 22, 2012

Mrsnglriousbstrd – It's up on Nook! I'm just about to put up a link. Happy reading!! Sorry Nook took so long to load!

Cia says March 23, 2012

Woo hoo!!! I've been hooked into the series since you sent me the free kindle book and I read it. So glad I signed up to twitter otherwise I probably wouldnt have put it next to read b4 the last installment of blue bloods & passion by lauren kate πŸ˜€


Heather says March 23, 2012

Addison….what. was. THAT. That ending..grrrrrr…I am so…I have no words. You hate us don't you? That's what it is.

Amber J. says March 23, 2012

it took me like 15 minutes just to get over the end of Chapter 1 (didn't expect that scene until the very end of the series); this is gonna be one looong emotional ride lol =(

…and congrats on writing 6 (well, 7) amazing books in just 1 year =)

AddisonMoore says March 23, 2012

Lucia! Oh, I'm SOO glad you're enjoying the series! Are you caught up? If so, you are fast!!! If you're still reading, enjoy!

AddisonMoore says March 23, 2012

Heather, there are so many necessary evils in life. I happen to be the dispenser of a few of those. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says March 23, 2012

John, I'm so relieved!!! Today was a crazy day with EXPEL and typically the book jumps in and out of their system for the first few hours it's aggregating. I really hope you'll enjoy EXPEL! Let me know!

AddisonMoore says March 23, 2012

Amber J. – Although it thrills me to rattle you and catch you off guard (like a lot;) I promise there is a purpose. Happy reading, girl! I'm hoping for a full report!

Melissa says March 23, 2012

OMG!! What amazing emotional roller coaster ride this book was. From crying to laughing and completely SHOCKED!! What an ending…I am in love with your books. Thank you so much! I wait with much anticipation for the next book, especially after that ending..WOW!

AddisonMoore says March 23, 2012

Melissa!!! I'm so happy you enjoyed the ride. I can't even tell you how happy your comment made me. Thank you! Tuesday Teasers start, Tuesday. πŸ˜‰

Sam_Piano says March 23, 2012

There are no words…i was left speechless and in denial. Tried for a full 30 seconds to get my nook to flip to a new page after the last words, I didn't want it to end. Mainly I waned to find out the details of "a well placed boyfriend".
I don't know who I'm rooting for any more. Marshall loves her and just wants it in return, Logan BELIEVES they will be together and Gage, oh Gage i was rooting for him and then a seed of doubt was planted….i can go on forever with discussing this book. Needless to say, cant wait for book 7!! AWESOME JOB!!

kwee says March 24, 2012

I made a review about expel on my blog if you are interested in checking it out! πŸ™‚ http://avidreaders4.blogspot.com/

AddisonMoore says March 24, 2012

Sam_Piano – Hi Sam! Thank you so much for reading. I'm sorry you were frustrated! Even though the series is starting to round out there is still so much more to Skyla's story. I really hope you'll join me for Tuesday Teasers over at FB (there's a link here on the page). I'll be giving tidbits from Celestra 7 and I'd love for you to join me! BTW, I think you summed up the guys in the love triangle nicely!

AddisonMoore says March 24, 2012

kwee – Yay! I'm headed over to check it out!

Treniece says March 24, 2012

I finished Expel last night. It was another book I could not put down until I reached the end! Fantastic twists and turns. Lots of great action. I thought it was perfect. I love it when a book blindsides me and still makes perfect sense. Thanks for a truly great read!

Liz Persons says March 24, 2012

Expel is absolutely freakin amazing! I had to put it down to take some notes for my US history class and we r reading about WW2. I flip to the next page and what am i reading about- the marshall plan. I found it to be a rather funny coincidence, and it really made me want to go back to the book! Thank you so much for writing these books. They are some of my favorites and the way you write your characters, their relationships, and each event is genius and compelling!

Fuzzyslippers says March 24, 2012

I just finished! That ending was……I'm speechless! I think I had a hunch about Gage, but I was like no it couldn't be and brushed it off. HAHA! I don't know who I want her to end up with now it's such a roller coaster in my head! But seriously what an amazing book! I can't wait for the next one! Thank you so much for keeping me entertained with this series! I never want it to end!

rhonda01 says March 24, 2012

When's book 7 coming out!!! I'm in suspense over here!!! And heartbroken over Gage πŸ™ didn't suspect him at all!
How long do we have to wait!!!!

Amber J. says March 25, 2012

At the risk of beating a dead horse, I was wondering if you could clarify the connection between Logan and Barron. Because I just read a sentence in Chapter 6 (yes, I'm the slowest reader ever lol) that confuses the heck out of me. I thought Logan was the son of Barron's oldest brother, so that would make him Logan's uncle, but now…

AddisonMoore says March 25, 2012

Treniece – I'm so glad you enjoyed the book! And I'm equally as happy it made sense! Thank you so much for reading. It was a long concerted effort but I'm glad in the end it's being enjoyed by nice people like you. Join me Tuesday on FB for teasers of Book 7!

AddisonMoore says March 25, 2012

Liz Persons – You made me laugh so hard! I love that Marshall is everywhere. Why doesn't that surprise me??? Too funny!! Glad you enjoyed the book! FB tuesday teasers are on if you're interested!

AddisonMoore says March 25, 2012

Fuzzyslippers – Aw, thank you. And Skyla's heart is just as torn! And I can't wait to give you the next one as well. SO glad you enjoyed the read. Tuesday teasers are on again if you're interested. Hope to see you there!

AddisonMoore says March 25, 2012

rhonda01 – Thank you for reading!! SO sorry you're heartbroken. There are few smashed hearts over on Paragon as well. Book 7 is looking like early summer. I'll know more in two weeks. FB tuesday for teasers! Join me! Have a great weekend. πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says March 25, 2012

Amber J. – Hi Amber. Yes, Barron is Logan's uncle slash brother. That word in chapter 6 was purposeful. I hope you solve the mystery soon! Happy reading, girl!

alirae says March 25, 2012

Omg I am like 95% finished with EXPEL and I really dont want it to end ….please tell me that their is going to be a 7th book….soonish?!??? Btw I am obsessed with all the books and have read them about 3 times!!!! <3

Geri says March 25, 2012

Addison…you did it again!!! I loved Expel…Still say best birthday present ever! Now #7 I hope I can wait that long…told you I was "older"!!
All I can say is I want more Moore!!!
I can't remember if I read it or heard it somewhere, but when you thank the Universe (God) it should always be followed with a tiny voiced "More, please."
big hug

AddisonMoore says March 25, 2012

alirae – First I am SOO humbled that you would reread them Thank you from the bottom of my heart for that, and yes, there is a 7! I'm knee deep in seven and so excited to get out the next leg in Skyla's story. Thank you so much for reading and I really hope you'll enjoy the last part of EXPEL! πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says March 25, 2012

Geri – Did it launch on your birthday? Happy belated birthday Geri!!! And I love your maxim for thanking and asking for more. It never hurts to be thankful and ask for more seems like the next natural step. As for this Moore, the books are coming. πŸ˜‰ I'm already deep in 7 and loving every problematic minute. Thank you so much for reading. Really, I can't thank you enough. Have a great rest of the weekend!

Liz says March 25, 2012

I loved, loved Expel, so many twists and turns and OMG the ending..I was rooting for Skyla and "the one her heart trusts" from day one !!! I love how they always find a way to one another! I cannot wait for book 7!!! Summer can't come any faster! Thank you Addison!!! I'm also excited for the TV series!

AddisonMoore says March 26, 2012

Liz -YAY! I really love hearing that you enjoyed the book! I'm pretty excited about the TV series as well. I'm hoping I'll have news to share soon!! If you're interested, teasers will be on FB on Tuesday! Hope to see U there!

Amy says March 26, 2012

So, I bought Expel the day it was available on my Nook (3/23), finished the first couple of pages and then decided to go back and re-read the series from the beginning before plowing into Expel. I have read each book in literally a day each (I am now almost finished with Wicked), and this time around I am being sucked into an emotional roller coaster more than I was the first time I read the books, which was just a few months ago when I discovered them on my Nook. I think the first time around I was so wound up waiting to see what would happen that I didn't get the full impact of emotions from the story. This time around? Shut the front door!! I am an emotional wreck and keep thinking about the book even when I am not reading it. I am so glad there will be a seventh book, and I really hope the story continues after that (and I haven't even started on 6!). This is the first time I have ever re-read a series, and I will probably re-read it again before book 7 comes out. Thank you so much for an amazing series that has captivated me!

Tara Reed Photography says March 26, 2012

Just a few chapters in and wow can I just say I LOOOOOOVVVEEE Gage!! I have never been so into a series like I am with Celestra. Skyla is a character I can relate to or should I say could considering I am 26..haha! I really hope that this hits tv or film sometime soon! I will check back in once I complete the book. I am taking my time with this one!

Danetra says March 27, 2012

Hey Addison – another great book! I have to say I was ready for the ending as I have been rooting for Marshall preferably or Logan. I would have been okay with clearing Gage out in the beginning only cause I am eager to get Skyla moving on and didn't think she could unless he was out of the picture. I know I am disappointing all the Gage fans with my comments. But to me he just seemed to be too good to be true and seemed like there was more depth to Marshall and Logan but guess the ending adds more depth to Gage's character. I am really really eager for Skyla to come into her own – really gain some confidence in her abilities, stop getting herself into so much trouble, start kick some butt and winning some of the war if not all. Look forward to book 7 and will check out the teasers.

AddisonMoore says March 27, 2012

Amy – I am SO honored that you would reread my series. I can't tell you how much that really means. Just to know that you enjoy it enough to read through it again is amazing. Thank you so much for reading my books and for putting a big 'ole smile on my face!

AddisonMoore says March 27, 2012

Tara Reed Photography – Oh, Tara! I hope you come back after you finish, lol! BTW, I have teasers up for Book 7 on FB and they do include Gage.

AddisonMoore says March 27, 2012

Danetra – I love and appreciate all of you opinions! I really enjoy hearing people's perspectives on the books, especially people rooting for different Characters. I, too, would like to see Skyla kick some butt and come into her own!! It's time.

Julie says March 27, 2012

Oh my god. Expel is amazing!!!! I just finished the book, and I literally balled my eyes out! The ending was such a turn of events! I have always been on Team Gage, but since the end of Expel, I'm doing a double-take of the whole situation. Gage's love for Skyla always seemed genuine and truthful, like it was always meant to be, but now Chloe decides to blurt out that he was practically playing a game with Skyla's heart, that he was just a chess piece in Chloe's game of destruction. I still can't believe that Gage would be capable of hurting a fly, let alone lie about loving Skyla, then breaking her heart, but then again Chloe could be up to one of her evil schemes to ruin Skyla's life and has talked Gage into helping her because she has dirt on him? I guess we won't find out until the next book. Also, Expel introduces a side of Marshall that we have never really witnessed before. He really lets his love for Skyla show, lets her know that he's still in the game and that he's not going anywhere. Anyways, onto Logan. Oh god, Logan. In all his Adonis glory. I have always had very strong emotions for him, and so has Skyla. I'm still not sure if he's worthy of my trust, or Skyla's for that fact, ever since he pledged his allegiance to the Countenance, but he seems to genuinely care about and love Skyla. Every time he is mentioned I feel a pang of heat in my stomach… something that notifies me that he is still very much orchestrated into Skyla's love life. Need I say anything about Chloe? Other than she's a backstabbing bitch, (Excuse my french lol) which of course all of you already know. This book was thoroughly explained and well thought out,and I can't wait for the 7th book! This is one series that I don't care if there are 20 books, it's such an amazing series!! I don't mean to go on for so long but I feel too strongly about this book… there is not enough space to write all the thoughts flying around in my head. Addison, you did a magnificent job on this book and I can't wait until your next piece comes out!(: (P.S, My favorite part was when Gage gave Skyla the ring that expressed his love for her!(: It was soo beautiful<33)

AddisonMoore says March 28, 2012

Julie – I love that you shared such an impassioned synopsis of your thoughts! Yes, with Gage things were seemingly unexpected. That whole storyline is explored in book 7.

Marshall did finally come to show his love for Skyla more openly. I think that revelation he received gave him the ray of hope he needed.

And Logan continues to show his sacrificial love for her as well.

As for Chloe, well, she's a handful of trouble. She doesn't fear anyone, not even me, and I could kill her in one brief sentence. πŸ˜‰

Thank you so much for reading my crazy books. The people of Paragon appreciate it as well. πŸ˜‰

I have teasers for Book 7 on my FB page is you're interested! The link is here on the lower left.

Thank you again!

Allisa K says March 28, 2012

OMG!!! This book was amazing! I finished it in just a few short days!! When does book 7 come out? πŸ™‚ no pressure πŸ™‚ thank you for sharing such a great story with us!! You are a very talented writer and I love your characters

AddisonMoore says March 28, 2012

Allisa K. – Yay! I'm super happy that you enjoyed the ride! Book 7 is still in the first draft phase. I'll know more in about two weeks as far as a release goes. I'm hoping early summer. Thank you so much for reading and it you're interested, there are teasers for book 7 on FB. The link is on the left hand side of the page. Hope to see you there!

ruchi says March 28, 2012

beautiful book Addison! i am secretly rooting for Logan to be the one that Skyla chooses, they seem to be soooo made for each other! eagerly awaiting book 7, hope it comes out sooner than later.

jcalla says March 28, 2012

Hi Addison! First, I want to say thank you for all of your hard work! I love reading your books. It is very clear that you have so many devoted fans, including myself. With that said, I am half way through Expel (yes, I read slow!) and I am getting so frustrated. I can't possibly imagine how you are going to wrap this up, 3 love interests?!? It's driving me crazy, how can her love be special and sacred when she is in love with both Gage and Logan, not to mention her affection for Marshall. You've got to help me stick this out, it will make sense in the end, right??

AddisonMoore says March 29, 2012

ruchi – Thank you for reading! Logan is rooting for Logan, too. πŸ˜‰ Both he and Skyla go through a lot in the next book. Thank you for reading!!

AddisonMoore says March 29, 2012

jcalla – Yes it will make sense at the end of the series. Skyla has genuine feelings for Gage and for Logan. She thinks highly of Marshall but he does not have her heart the way the other two do at least not yet, anyway (I don't want to say either way). I don't want to spoil EXPEL, so happy reading!

Danetra says March 30, 2012

So I really enjoy reading other people's thoughts and takes on the characters in the books. I always felt that Marshall loved Skyla and that it showed in the things he did for her but that he didn't just give her everything and sometimes let her learn the hard way. Also I liked Gage at first but ever since he didn't want Skyla to read Chloe's diary I started to worry about him. Then when Chloe returned and how he acted with her and let's her get away with so much while still remaining friends with her – I just trust him with Skyla. And though it might have seemed that Logan was being bad, I always trusted him and what he was doing was always to protect and help Skyla. Not just that but that he was loyal and always trying to protect Celestras. I still think he is. Then I started thinking Addison knows what happens to all of them and who Skyla ends up with and that just doesn't seem fair. I want to know too. Anyways I thought you might get a kick out of that last part and decided to share it with you. I am jealous of your knowledge about my favorite characters. Really looking forward to the next book. Hope writing/revisions (where ever you are at this stage) are going well.

AddisonMoore says March 30, 2012

Hi Danetra! I always love hearing from you! I had to give a sad laugh when I read that last part about me knowing. I guess in this case I do have the 'gift' of knowing. πŸ˜‰ I keep envisioning a year from now when I have all of the series done and there won't be anymore waits between books for readers. I'll sleep better knowing I haven't left someone hanging for months at a time wondering which way the next book will go. It's going to be a wonderful feeling once they're all out. And when they are, you, too will know the fate of each and every one of them. πŸ™‚

Amy says March 30, 2012

No. Freaking. Way. I feel like my heart was ripped out and stomped on and a bucket of rocks just dumped in my stomach! I so did not see that ending coming. I tried to stretch out reading the book as long as I could but finally gave up on the second day and finished it. Big mistake as I finished it at midnight and couldn't sleep after that for at least a couple of hours. I really, really, really had to fight the urge to go back through the other books (which I just re-read over the past week) to see what I missed along the way. Other readers seemed to have had a hunch about HIM (ahem), but the brilliance that is me did not! I almost woke up my sleeping husband with my very outward reaction! How can a book make me this upset/sad/depressed/emotional?!? Lol. As for the length of the book, I would be thrilled if the rest of the books were just as long or longer, so write away Addison! Thanks again for the series. I look forward to being a long-time, faithful reader.

AddisonMoore says March 31, 2012

Amy – Love the emotion in your comment. I felt horrible the way you expressed your heartbreak, shock, and lack of sleep–yikes!

I am glad you found the length was OK because there is a slight chance the next and the one after might be large, too. I'm planning for two more books, a third only if size is an issue. So there is an end!

I do have a blast writing them and I am super thrilled that you would read them. From the bottom of my heart thank you!

SaraKate says March 31, 2012

I have loved the previous books! I read the first few on my Sony Reader, then couldn't find Vex as an ePUB so I had to get it on my iPad. I hate reading on my iPad but it was worth it to get to read Vex. Now it looks like Expel is only available on Nook and Kindle? Please tell me there is a way to get it for my Sony or my iPad!

AddisonMoore says April 1, 2012

SaraKate – Hello! If you have the Kindle for ipad app (its free) you can download EXPEL right way. As for any other format it won't be available for anything outside of Kindle or Nook for another two weeks. I'm having my file converted for Smashwords. Let me know if you're able to get it for ipad! Happy reading!

SaraKate says April 1, 2012

That worked Addison! Thanks! Can't wait to get reading!

Amy says April 1, 2012

Hi again, just so that you know, all of those emotions I felt after reading Expel were in a good way if that makes any sense! Don't feel horrible about how it affected me, because i sure don't. πŸ™‚ There have not been many books that I have read (and I read A LOT) where I became so emotionally invested in the characters and story. A book making me emotional is a good thing so, again, thank you!!

One more quick thing, I think it is awesome how you reply to each and every person individually here, and I know others would agree! Cake pops to you, Addison!

AddisonMoore says April 1, 2012

SaraKate – Yay! I'm so glad. Happy reading~!!!

AddisonMoore says April 1, 2012

Amy – I'm glad to hear that. And I love responding to you guys. I figure if you're willing to take time out of you day to write I'll gladly do so to respond. Thank you SO much for reading, Amy!! Enjoy the last few drops of the weekend!

ARPM says April 4, 2012

OMG! Expel…there are no words. I could not keep this book down. Please, please, please, do let us wait too long for the next one. You are a talented author and enjoyed every minute of this book (as well as all the rest).

AddisonMoore says April 4, 2012

ARPM – Wow, thank you. I'm really excited that you enjoyed it! I'm writing book 7 right now and I hope you'll enjoy that one as well. Can't wait to share it with you. The teasers for Book 7 are up on FB if you're interested. There's a link here on the left. Have a great day and thank you so much for reading my books!

ARPM says April 5, 2012

No. Thank you for having a wonderful imagination/talent and writing these books. You are truly awesome.

Amber J. says April 5, 2012

I'm not quite done with EXPEL yet (I can already tell I'm going to need some help figuring out what happened lol), but for now I just have one completely random question: Is Chloe black or latina or some other ethnicity? I hadn't thought about it much before, but she's described as "brown-skinned" and "cinnamon-skinned" in this book and I got a little excited, because we are underrepresented in YA. It's cool if she's not, but I was just wondering.
*off to finish EXPEL*

AddisonMoore says April 6, 2012

Amber J.! I'm glad you're still reading EXPEL!! I'd love to know your thoughts when you're finished so please come back either here or on FB.

As for Chloe I was trying to think of an actress or model who I could give you an example of but I couldn't think of anyone current. To me Chloe is nothing short of an ultimate beauty. The kind of girl that every guy wants and that nobody can ignore. I guess if I had to pick someone to describe her it would be a young Cindy Crawford with very rich tan skin. That's close to how I see her. Hope that helps!

Cambria says April 7, 2012

Just finished Expel!
(now I can finally finish that stack of homework I've been putting off haha)and I looovvveed it!
Gage is my favorite. Is it weird that I love him even more after that ending? =) I still want him to end up with Skyla though so I'm hoping that didn't completely take him out of the equation.
I'm so glad I found these books I cant believe I'm still this hooked after the 6th one, I don't think Ill ever get burnt out on this series =) by the way I wouldn't mind if the next book is as long as Expel. πŸ˜‰

AddisonMoore says April 8, 2012

Cambria! Thank you so much for reading EXPEL! I'm completely endeared to the fact you've fallen more in love with Gage after that ending. I love your devotion to him! I'm so glad you're still enjoying the ride. I hope book 7 replicates the magic for you. I can't wait to share the rest of Skyla's journey.

Oh, and, book 7 is ever expanding day by day. It wouldn't surprise me if it were close to at least VEX in size when I'm through.

Be sure to check out the teasers on my FB page if you like! The teasers are for book 7 and my new series the Countenance. Enjoy~!

Julie says April 11, 2012

Holy shoot, these covers are AMAZING!!

AddisonMoore says April 12, 2012

Julie – Thank you!!! My husband is the cover artist. He does it mostly by himself but I'm thankful he listens to my input once in a while. πŸ˜‰

LaughingSun says April 14, 2012

oh my gosh… what an AWESOME series! Expel is so wonderful… I laughed out loud and my kids asked why… I hid in my room when I cried and I held my breath at the end. I can NOT wait for the next book in the series, I'm a HUGE fan!!! thank you so much!

Amber J. says April 15, 2012

I finally finished EXPEL, and it definitely has the beautifully descriptive writing and creative metaphors that I've come to expect from such a talented author. I love how the island itself felt like another character. I even liked Skyla again in this book lol–I feel like she's really starting to grow and mature πŸ™‚

Unfortunately, this was my least favorite book in the series, because I was very confused and felt so lost while reading πŸ™
It just seemed like events that happened in previous books were contradicted in EXPEL, which made it difficult to follow the story.

For example, when Logan's powers were restored toward the end, I realized he had been able to "dream drive" the whole time (because that's how he set up their escape into the future with past-Skyla at the end of VEX). But, he shouldn't have been able to do that because Skyla had had his powers revoked. (Since Logan, Chloe, and Skyla [oh, and Marshall lol] were the only ones that dream drove in this series I assume it's a Celestra power, right?)

Also, I had asked at the end of VEX why Gage didn't use his powers to avoid the accident, and in EXPEL we find out about Chloe's binding spirit. But then I remembered, in ETHEREAL, Gage was able to teleport into Ezrina's lair and levitate Drake and Brielle out of there even though there was a binding spirit around that.

There are several other plot points that tripped me up, but I don't want to be a Debbie Downer lol. If it's ok to as them, let me know (it's also cool if you want me to just shut up and stop asking questions lol). None of the comments here or on FB seem to raise these issues, so maybe it's just me :/

LaughingSun – Thank you! I love that you felt such a range of emotion throughout the book. I get the same way when I write and I'm always thrilled when it translates to readers that way. I'm really glad that it did for you. Teasers for book 7 are up on FB. I'm almost done with the first draft. I cannot wait to share 7 with you!! Thank you so much for reading. πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says April 15, 2012

Amber J. – Thank you for the kind words about my writing! As for some of the issues you had, In ETHEREAL the binding spirit was specific to Skyla, as for dreaming, Chloe has done this and Logan has done this several times but it is not a Celestra trait. Some skills can be learned and are easier for some than others, (stated in ETHEREAL).

Skyla only had Logan's 'Celestra' powers revoked in VEX chapter 54 last line , β€œI want you to revoke his Celestra powers.” Logan then turns to his non Celestra resources which include dreaming.

Skyla, too picks up a new skill in book 7 and, no, it has nothing to do with dreams. πŸ˜‰

Sadie Shepard says April 15, 2012

I think all your books are amazing. Please keep them coming. They are really creative, fun to read, and hard to put down.

AddisonMoore says April 15, 2012

Sadie Shepard – I can't thank you enough for your kind comment~!!! And I can't wait to share the last leg of SKyla's adventure with you. You're welcome to join me on FB for teasers of book 7 if you'd like. The link is here on the left hand side of the blog. Thank you so much for reading and for stopping in with your very sweet words!

Amber J. says April 15, 2012

Thanks so much for clearing that up. It may not seem like it, but I really do try to find the answers in the books before I ask questions lol. I will try to do a more thorough search before I ask questions in the future.

I want to be able to be honest about my reaction to the books, but more than anything, I appreciate that they are well-written, and they always make me have visceral responses–like I literally laugh (or scream lol) out loud, and the dialogue is always witty, and the characters are awesome.

This is the first time I've liked a franchise that is longer than a trilogy, so being invested in a series with 8 installments kind of feels like strapping yourself into a roller coaster and trusting the author to operate the ride lol.

Sometimes I forget my own #1 Celestra series rule: Addison Moore knows exactly what she's doing (and nothing in Paragon is ever as it seems)…sorry for another long post

LaughingSun says April 15, 2012

I just wanted to add… I love that you respond personally to each comment. As a reader, it makes me feel included and even more a part of life on the little island of Paragon πŸ™‚

AddisonMoore says April 15, 2012

Amber J.- No problem! I'm glad I could help. πŸ™‚ Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

AddisonMoore says April 15, 2012

LaughingSun – I have to say that I'm constantly blown away that you guys would take the time out of your day to comment, the least I can do is return the favor. I am so thankful for nice readers like you! And I'm so happy you feel included and a part of Paragon. I really do venture into Skyla's world for you guys. πŸ™‚

Laura Tijerina says April 16, 2012

OMG! I can't believe the ending! I can't wait for the next! I'm so stunned…

Tori says April 17, 2012

I am on the third book and I can't put it down!!! When will the movies be filmed? πŸ˜‰ I'd happily be an extra lol I love ALL the characters!

AddisonMoore says April 17, 2012

Laura Tijerina – I can't wait to get it to you! Book 7 is still in the process of being penned but I'm still hopeful for a summer release. Teasers are up on FB if you're interested!! Link is on the left here somewhere. Thank you for reading~!

AddisonMoore says April 17, 2012

Tori – Yay! I hope you continue to love them as you make your way through the series. Let me know what you think of them as you go. I'm thrilled to have you along for the ride!! Happy reading~!

AddisonMoore says April 17, 2012

Tori – Oops forgot to add, I have no clue about the filming, lol! As soon as I hear I'll post news!!! I'm hoping to hear something very soon. πŸ™‚

Magikal says April 19, 2012

Just finished book 1-4. I just love them. Cant wait to get the last two. hope they do make a series as would totally watch.

AddisonMoore says April 21, 2012

Magikal – Thank you so very much for reading! If you're continuing in the series I really hope you enjoy VEX and EXPEL. I'm working on book 7 right now and book 8 will conclude the series. I'll be following Skyla in other novel but through a different series. Thank you so much again for reading~!

MPP7707 says April 24, 2012

I LOVE this series, you are a phenomenal writer, each book draws me further into your written world! Please hurry with book 7, I will be waiting on pins and needles!!!

AddisonMoore says April 24, 2012

MPP7707 – Thank you for the CELESTRA love!!!! And thank you so much for the kind words about my writing. I'm very happy to hear that each book pulls you in just a little bit more. After the last book in the series, Book 8, there will be another book on Skyla's life and I hope you'll join me for that series as well. Book 8 wraps everything up for CELESTRA including love. πŸ˜‰

timeforfun says April 30, 2012

Addison, you are awesome! I devoured all 6 of your books and anxiously await the 7th. I wish I knew what well-placed boyfriend means. I can't decide which of the 3 men in Skyla's life I want her to end up with. I love all 3. I am a grandmother (who never grows old) and I am totally into this series!!! Keep up the good work and hurry with #7. lol

AddisonMoore says May 1, 2012

timeforfun – BIG thank you~! I'm so happy that you're enjoying the books! The well-placed boyfriend is a reference from Chloe's diary. It was a mystery for some time who this person could be. And I'm thrilled you like all three men because you will be very easy to please in the end. πŸ˜‰ Thank you so much for reading!!

kelly jenkins says May 12, 2012

What a great idea to start another series with skyla! I hate getting so attached to characters and then reading the last book! Its like your leaving their lives and you still so desperately want to bad a part of it still! Keep them coming forever! Any idea on a release date for book 7? I read the first six in three days! I read at work at dinner in bed in church!!! I couldn't stop!! I don't want to wait for 7 Lol. I want it now! You are amazing!

AddisonMoore says May 12, 2012

kelly jenkins – Thanks Kelly! I have that same feeling and it's nice to know some of my readers do, too! I'll outline everything after book 8 (the last Celestra book) so you'll know what to expect. Thank you very much for reading~!

Loree Huebner says July 27, 2012
