Today, we’re hosting a stop for THE EXEMEUS by sister-writer team Folami and Abeni Morris. This tour is sponsored by CBB Book Promotions.
Before I tell you about the amazing giveaway, I want you to hear all about this book:
Her short life was devoted to love and to hate.
Love of the man who stole her heart, hate for the man who stole the world.
Murdered by the government she swore to destroy, she’s been given another
chance to make it right. But to save the planet, she needs the help of the most
powerful mystic the world has ever seen—unfortunately he hasn’t been born yet.
In a world where fear is the only currency, Dephon has committed the ultimate
crime: inspiring hope.
His only goal is to make it safely through ninth grade, but on a
post-apocalyptic Earth run by the Treptonian government, it isn’t that simple.
Heir to a legendary power, Dephon Johnson is the only threat to the
government’s rule. And on Trepton, all threats must be eliminated. When hundreds
of assassins are dispatched to neutralize him, Dephon is forced to fight back.
His only chance of survival is to enlist the aid of the greatest warrior the
world has ever known. The only problem is, she’s been dead for 13 years.
I really wasn’t sure what to expect when I started reading this book. I kind of imagined it to be a cute, middle-grade adventure about a boy who realizes he has powers and must then run off to save the world. I completely underestimated this story! THE EXEMEUS is an action-packed, fast-paced novel with brave characters and a twist at the end that kept me reading until the very last page.
Another reviewer on Goodreads mentioned that she couldn’t tell where one author’s voice ended and the other’s began, and I wholeheartedly agree. These authors do an excellent job of blending their story together seamlessly, and I can’t wait to read more. These fun, sassy characters and exciting plot will demand your attention and keep you reading at all hours of the day and night.
Now, here’s more about the sister authors behind the book:
Folami and Abeni Morris are a sister-sister writing team. Together they wrote (and rewrote) The Exemeus, somehow managing to accomplish it without murdering one another. Despite their facial similarities, tendency to finish each other’s thoughts and stick up for each other constantly, no, they’re not twins and thus deserve their own individual bio.
Folami grew up in the tiny city of San Mateo Ca, where nothing ever happens and no one ever leaves. She went to Xavier University for undergraduate, getting her B.A in physics and her B.S in Biology. After graduation she returned to California, to live in an even smaller city, where even less happens, Antioch Ca. During this time she escaped the monotony by hanging out with her imaginary friends Hyalee and Dephon, and by writing the Exemeus. She finally escaped to Queens NY and now realizes that quiet and tiny aren’t so bad.
As luck (and logic) would have it, Abeni grew up in the same tiny little town as her sister, then she too escaped to the tinier town of Antioch. She has yet to leave. She received her bachelor’s degree in early childhood development from Cal State East Bay. She is the mom of two amazing kids, who swear that they deserve a percentage of the book proceeds and a ton of the credit. At least she raised dreamers.
