Erased by Jennifer Rush, Blog Tour; Guest Post & Giveaway



Welcome to the ERASED blog tour, Part II. I'm thrilled to be kicking off this week long tour for Jennifer Rush's second book in the Altered series. Today's post is about Trev. First, here's a little bit about the book:


They thought they had escaped. They were wrong.

After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is trying to make sense of the memories resurfacing from her old life. At the same time, she's learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back.
Then a figure from Anna's childhood reappears. Is it a Branch setup, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Uncertain of where her loyalties lie, Anna must fight to learn the truth -- before she is betrayed again. Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased?
Jennifer Rush delivers a thrilling sequel to Altered in a novel packed with mysteries, lies, and surprises that are sure to keep readers guessing until the last page is turned.

ERASED is the second book in the Altered series from author Jennifer Rush. It's published by Little Brown and hits stores TODAY! You can purchase it at Amazon | Barnes & Noble, and your favorite book store. Add it to Goodreads.

Thoughts from Jennifer Rush about Trev:

At the end of Altered, Trev breaks away from the group and I knew going into Erased that he wouldn't appear as much on the page as he did in Altered. Because of that, I wanted to keep him fresh in the reader's minds---since he's a dear character to me, and dear to Anna as well. It made sense to me that his first reappearance in Erased would be through Anna's sketches. Drawing is an important part of her life, and because of the nature of the world she lives in---the Branch, and their ability to wipe memories---sketches are a tangible way for Anna to record her memories. They're something not even the Branch can take away (provided she hid them well, that is!). And I think another important part of this scene is the fact that Anna feels Trev's absence more than the boys, and she's not sure how to cope with it. Her stumbling on the sketch was a way to make it more poignant, because while he isn't there in person, he's still there, and she's reminded of how dear he was to her by the image of him on paper, drafted in her own hand. Plain and simple, she misses Trev, despite everything.

  16. I have read Altered and it was incredible. My favorite character is Anna. No Sam. I changed my mind it's Nick and Cas. I like Trev too even though he's a *spoiler alert* traitor. As you can tell I really care and love all the characters. I really can't choose. But I do want to own these amazing books. I will read them again and again. Thanks!
