I'm very excited today to turn the blog over to author Jena Leigh and Kenzie, one of the characters from her young adult science fiction novel Revival. Jena has also very generously offered up a copy of Revival to one lucky winner, so be sure and check the bottom of the post for all the details. Welcome to Supernatural Snark Jena and Kenzie!
Hi! I’m Kenzie O’Connell. I’m a Leo. I like coffee, computers, long walks on the beach and, well, more coffee.
…Aaaannd Jena’s giving me the stink eye.
Right. Sorry, Jena.
Can you blame a girl for trying? I spend most of my days under the obnoxious and ever-vigilant eyes of three brothers and our guardian, John Grayson. That much testosterone (and potential for public embarrassment) doesn’t exactly do wonders for a gal’s social life.
But, apparently, that’s not what I’m supposed to be talking to you about. Apparently, I’m here to tell you all about Jena’s new novel, Revival, where I appear in the starring role.
…Wow. Careful, Jena. Your face might stick that way.
Okay, so I’m not exactly the star of the show. That honor actually goes to my dear friend, Alex.
She’s flippin’ adorable, you guys. No, really. You’ll like her. Personally, I love her. But that’s probably because she’s the first girl in ages who not only tolerates my brothers—she also knows our secret… And we know hers.
Y’see, my family’s a little… different.
Oh, who am I kidding? We’re not even human. Not technically. My family and I—we’re Variants. Every one of us has a special ability that we’re forced to hide from the world, per the Agency’s rules. If we draw too much attention to ourselves, we’ll have them to answer to. And let’s just say that shadowy government organizations don’t take too kindly to show-offs.
And Alex? Well, she’s got even more to worry about.
Her powers are unlike anything I’ve ever seen—and I’m not just talking about the effect she has on my idiot brothers. Her abilities put her on a whole new level of freaktastic. And if she can’t get them under control, we could all be in trouble.
…Is that good, Jena? Can I have my coffee back now?
What do you mean you “sort of drank it”?
Oh. Oh, it’s so on.
Come back here, author-lady, before I go all Variant on your novel-writing self! I mean it, Jena! You owe me a coffee!
Don’t hold it against her, y’all. It was some awesome coffee… And she needs the caffeine right now more than I do. After all, she’s got all of those wonderful, Kenzie-filled scenes in Revival’s sequel to finish writing.
Hmm… Maybe I should put on another pot of coffee.
Thanks for stopping by you two! More information on Jena and Revival can be found here:

If you’re looking for proof, just ask sixteen-year-old Alexandra Parker. After catching her boyfriend in the arms of the prettiest girl in school, she made the journey from social elite to social pariah in a haze of electricity and exploding electronics. But finding herself at the bottom of Bay View High’s social hierarchy was nothing compared to the shock of discovering who—and what—she really is.
After being zapped out of a burning bookstore by the mysterious Declan—a hero nearly as handsome as he is infuriating—Alex finds herself under the protection of the powerful Grayson family. It’s through them that she learns the truth: that the world she’s always known is nothing like it appears to be... and that she has far more in common with them than she might want to believe.
Now, on the run from a fire-wielding hit man and a secretive government organization, Alex must navigate a strange and treacherous new world filled with superhuman mutants known as Variants. As she begins to unravel the many secrets of her family’s past, she uncovers the real reason for her parents’ death twelve years earlier—and finds out that the threat to her family, and to everyone she cares about, is still dangerously real.
