Dazzle Blog Tour: Movie Cast List & Giveaway

Today author Amber Garza stops by the blog with a movie cast list, if her book Dazzle was made into a movie! What do you think of the actors, Amber has picked for Dazzle?

For Delaney, I would cast Brittany Norris, my cover model because to me she is Delaney.
I’m Delaney Scott. I was born in the Town of Edenly and I’ve lived here my whole life. My best friend Micah lives next door. I didn’t realize until I was eight years old that Micah and I share more than the same neigborhood. We’re both Ekloge Warriors. We have special powers that one day we will use to save our people. There are others – eight more to be exact – but we’ve never met them. I think the happiest day of Micah’s life was the day his gift manifested.
It was my worst. I never asked for this life. I just want to be a normal sixteen year old. I want to go to parties, hang with friends, maybe even have a boyfriend. Speaking of which, there is boy I’m interested in. His name is Sam Peterson. He’s kind of rough around the edges and I’ve been warned to stay away from him. He’s not one of us. He doesn’t have our markings. But I can’t help it. I like him.
And I think he likes me too….
For Sam, Jeremy Sumpter
I’m Sam Peterson. I live in the Town of Edenly but not by choice. I’d give anything to get out of this boring town. It’s not like I fit in here. I’m not one of them – those followers of Zerach. And they know it too. You see, we wear our alliances on our skin, and my arms are bare. That’s fine by me. I have no desire to be like everyone else. I’ve got something in the works that’s even better. But I can’t tell anyone. It’s a matter of life or death. That may sound cliche, but it’s the truth. The guys I’m working with would think nothing of breaking my neck, and I kinda like my neck the way it is.

Delaney is part of my plan but she just doesn’t know it. Man, Delaney is hot. I know I shouldn’t think so. Falling for her would completely ruin everything. But there’s just something about her, you know?

She’s different than I expected.

She has a way of getting under my skin, despite my best efforts to keep her at a distance….
For Micah, Lenny Kravitz

I’m Micah Everett. Not only was I born in the Town of Edenly, but one day I will save it. You see, I’m an Ekloge Warrior. I was born with a special gift, and a duty to uphold to my people. My calling is the most important thing in the world to me. My best friend Delaney is also a Warrior.

Only, she doesn’t want to be. She would give anything to get rid of her gift, and be normal like everyone else.

However, that’s not an option. We can’t run from our calling.
There are ten of us all together, and we finally met two more the other day. One of them is Ariel. She’s a lot like Delaney, but don’t you dare tell Delaney I said that. She doesn’t like Ariel. Clearly, Ariel is hiding something and that makes Delaney nervous. I know I should be more on guard around Ariel, but there’s just something about her that intrigues me. And it’s not just the fact that she’s gorgeous, despite what Delaney might think. Besides, we’re all going to have to learn to work together. Our enemies, the Sarafites, have infiltrated Edenly. It’s only a matter of time before we will have to rise up and fight.

I’m ready. I just hope the other Warriors are too.

For Ariel, Amanda Seyfried
I’m Ariel Starling. My brother Asa and I are Ekloge Warriors. Up until recently Asa was the only other Warrior I knew. But then I got mixed up in something I shouldn’t have and was almost killed. If it weren’t for Delaney and Micah rescuing me I’m pretty sure I would have died. Only now I’m stuck living with Delaney and I’m practically under house arrest. Everyone says it’s for my own protection, but whatever the reason it totally sucks. The only silver lining is Micah. With him things don’t seem so bleak. He’s kind, fun to be around and smokin’ hot. Sometimes it even seems like he’s starting to fall for me. However, it’s obvious that he’s completely into Delaney. Not that it matters. Once he finds out my secret, he’ll want nothing to do with me anyway. None of the Warriors will.
That’s why I have to be sure no one ever finds out…
For Jax, Chris Hemsworth
I’m Jax Wilder, and you’ll have to forgive me, but I’m no good at introductions. I don’t like to sit around and talk about myself. Let’s face it, I’m not a chick. If you want to hang with me you have to be able to keep up. I’m fearless. And I mean that literally. I’m an Ekloge Warrior and my gift is bravery. I’m not scared of anything.

At least I wasn’t scared of anything. Until I met Zoe, that is.

Until her, I’d never met a girl who could take my breath away with just one look. And she’s the only girl in the world who can keep up with me. She’s tough as nails. Now she’s been imprisoned by the Sarafites, and honestly I feel for them. They don’t know who they’re messing with. If I know Zoe, she’s making their life hell right now.

And if they hurt her at all, they’re going to have to deal with me. Now that’s something to be scared of.

  1. I guess having power is not what it seems to be. Every book which the heroine has a destiny long to be normal but they can't due to responsibilities. Didn't Uncle Ben said that with great power comes responsibilities. I love the book excerpt and would love to read more to find out where the story is heading.

    Thanks for the giveaway.
