"Renegade" Blurb:
The conclusion to the Heven and Hell series.

I’ve been beautiful. I’ve been ugly. I’ve died. I’ve been brought back. I’ve had abilities awakened within me. My strength has been tested. My beliefs have been tested. 
Yet I stand.
What’s next when you’ve pretty much experienced it all?
The end.
Sam and I are picking up the pieces. We’re trying to come to terms with all we’ve lost. And as much as I would like to hide my head, ignore the reality I live every day, there is no forgetting. 
Riley is in hell—I’m still not sure of his agenda. My mother’s past haunts me. And Kimber… Kimber is being herself. Cole sneaks glances at Gemma and she returns them when she thinks I don’t see. 
But I do. 
When Beelzebub escapes he brings his war to places I never thought he would. Earth. Maine. Home. Now everyone and everything is at risk. This has become bigger than my circle of friends. This has become bigger than me. I have to finish this. I have to find a way to stop him, to finish this war.
I just pray we will all be left standing in the end.

Renegade Excerpt
*Chapter One*
It begins like usual, the slightest disturbance to my sleep, making me toss and turn until I’m in that place between rest and wakefulness—not fully coherent, but enough so I could have groggy thoughts. 
There is pain, not the kind of pain that would make you squirm, just enough to make you feel uncomfortable. It kind of squirms around in my limbs, like adrenaline, but not as insistent, making my body twitch.
My eyes pop open, and I shoot up off the couch, not bothering to grab a T-shirt or the shorts that lay nearby. I won’t need them. I move silently like a cat—like a hound—to the door and slide the lock over and let myself out. It’s cold out. The air doesn’t shock me back into myself. I don’t even shiver. 
Then I’m racing through the yard, over the grass, and past the barn. I hear the horses in their stalls, alerted at my presence, but I ignore them and keep running. My bones come unhinged and realign. My spine stretches, begins to reshape, and my body hunches. Black, thick fur sprouts, replacing the smooth skin of my human arm and then finally the switch in my brain flips.
I am no longer human.
I am hellhound. 
But I’m still me. 
Only this me can give in to the frustration and sadness that seems to well up inside my human skin until I’m so full and there’s nowhere else for it to go. And so it sloshes there. It soaks in until I feel like I’ll drown. 
I hate it. 
That’s when the hound takes over. I can’t really deny it. It’s like a summons, a calling, a command. Usually I can tell it no, or push back, but when you’re full of sloshing emotion there’s nowhere to push it back to.
So I give in.
I run. 
I lose all thought.
It’s just me, the night, and nothing else. It’s a kind of freedom I’ve never felt before.
And then I wake up. 

Author Bio:
Cambria Hebert is the author of the young adult paranormal Heven and Hell series and the Death Escorts series. She loves a caramel latte, hates math and is afraid of chickens (yes, chickens). She went to college for a bachelor’s degree, couldn’t pick a major and ended up with a degree in cosmetology. So rest assured her characters will always have good hair. She currently lives in North Carolina with her husband and children (both human and furry) where she is plotting her next book. You can find out more about Cambria and her work by visiting

Topic: Favorite Books and their Authors:

"Hi! Thank you for having me here today to talk books! I love books, but I highly doubt you would ever hear an author say otherwise. (If you do you should run! Run fast! Lol)
So for today’s post I was asked about my favorite books. I think choosing my absolute favorite books is hard because there are SO many good reads out there. I think bookworms everywhere would agree that every book has something special about it. 
So instead of telling you my most favorite read of all I thought I would share ten of the books I have read and really loved. (in no specific order).
Maybe some of your favorites are on here too! 

#1.  Hopeless by Colleen Hoover
#2.  Intertwined series by Gena Showalter (its her YA series)
#3.  Need series by Carrie Jones
#4.  Unearthly series by Cynthia Hand
#5.  Twilight series by Stephanie Myer 
#6.  Obsidian by Jennifer Armentrout
#7.  Angel Fall by Susan Ee
#8.  Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
#9.  Nightshade series by Andrea Cremer
#10.  Dirty Blood series by Heather Hildenbrand

So those are some of my top favorites! How about you? What books do you love most?"

*Great choice in books Cambria! Actually, every single book you just listed are on my favorite list too! And, I know exactly what you mean when you say it's pretty much impossible to narrow down a list of favorite books. I actually can never do it. Someone asks what my favorite book is, I look at them like they're crazy. I couldn't even do a top ten. I wouldn't be able to put them in a specific order either! Thank you so much for listing your faves though, I hope my readers might find a new book to read, or perhaps they just found out you have some of the same favorites as them!!*
