Blog Tour: Gemini Rising by Jessica O'Gorek


YA Paranormal Romance/Sci-Fi
Date Published: 4/13/2013

Angry at the human race and its methodical destruction of her resources, Mother Earth recruits souls who have just left their bodies to serve Her, and turns them against humanity. A powerful, rising force proceeds to carry out Mother Nature’s plan to systematically destroy towns, cities, states… and eventually, the world. Amidst the chaos, a forbidden relationship between a human girl, Violette, and Onyx, a lead Gemini, begins. They will both find themselves in the middle of a revolutionary war that will either save, or destroy our world.

My Review:
This novel was not at all what I was expecting. The theme of the story takes Fantasy/Sci-Fi to a whole new level by adding in real life what-if questions to the equation. 

The characters in the story are intriguing and seem like real people. I liked that we saw Onyx's flaws and how he grew. That too me is always huge in characters, their evolution if you will.

I think that the plot flowed smoothly for the most part. There were a few instances that I was left wanting a bit more to connect me with the story and its characters, but I think overall it was a good execution and good start to this series, I look forward to seeing it evolve as a series. 



I was born in Chesapeake, Virginia on April 19th, 1979. I was raised within the American Indian religion and was taught great respect for the earth and all its living beings. Powwows, sweat lodges, vision quests, you name it, I’ve done it. I was the weird kid who would confront kids on the playground in elementary school when they squished a bug. I would very sincerely tell them what they were doing was morally wrong and then I would pray for the bug to come back as a butterfly in its next life.


​I grew up admiring my father, Barry Weinstock, as an author. He took me around the country to different places so he could research and write his Wilderness Survival books. One of his greatest works, “The Path of Power,” was written with a great medicine man, Sunbear. When I was twelve I started

hand writing novels. My first one was two thousand pages. My dad always encouraged me and would rave about my writing. He gave me the confidence I needed to keep writing and follow my dream. My daughter, who is twelve, is currently working on her first novel. I hope to continue the legacy.
