Blog Tour: Of Gaea by Victoria Escobar


Her choice will change the world.

She hated the wheelchair. Hated the way it made her feel less than what she was. Most of all she hated not being able to do all the things she used to. Ari had been a track and field star, an archery champion and an Eskrima pro. Now she was confined to a wheelchair slowly dying inside from its restraints.

Medical science wasn’t working. The tests, the drugs, the therapies were all useless and a waste of time. She was tired of wasting her time; she was tired of failure. It was time to look away from the obvious and try something unconventional.

Nothing was ever free and that included miracles. Abruptly, Ari finds herself tangled in a web of lies, questioning everything she’s ever known as truth. Never had she believed she’d be thrown headfirst into a world of good and evil, magic and Gods.

Trapped in the middle of a war she had never known existed both parties demanded her allegiance. Ari was a catalyst that could change all the rules of the Earth. But when the time comes to make a choice will she be strong enough to know right from wrong?


 “I would bring down the sky, if it meant I was able to stay with you always.” He turned his head and kissed her open palm. “Here is the deepest secret nobody knows; here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide; and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart I carry your heart; I carry it in my heart.

Ari couldn’t prevent the swell of emotion that rushed through her. She couldn’t even tell what emotions were spinning in disbelief and joy. Poetry. Sasha had just quoted poetry to her.

“Sasha… I…” Forming words through her dazed mind and swelling heart was not possible.

His forehead dropped to hers. “I am empty without you. I’ve loved you since we were four and you declared homicide against a pink bicycle. I’ve loved you since you knocked me on my ass and declared yourself champion of my backyard. I’ve loved you forever, even knowing I cannot keep you. Please don’t send me away. Ask me anything else Ari, and I will give it,but don’t ask me to leave your side. Please…”

About the author:

Once upon a time, long, long ago, Victoria was born in sunny Florida, except it wasn’t sunny; it was the middle of the night. Midnight actually, well, two minutes past, but she tried really hard for midnight.

​Victoria has been to twenty one schools in her lifetime. With all the continual switching around, she’s relied on her imagination for friends and books for close companions. In high school she remained apart from the whole and spent most of her time in the library either reading or writing.

​Currently, Victoria has set down roots in New York with her family. She still reads and writes every day. She finished her debut novel Of Gaea in the winter of 2012 and is working on the sequel and many other projects.
