H.A.L.F. Blog Tour - Dream Cast & Giveaway

Welcome to our stop on the H.A.L.F. blog tour. We have the dream cast to share with you and an awesome giveaway so don't miss out!! ^_^

H.A.L.F. The Deep Beneath
By Natalie Wright

H.A.L.F. 9 has taken his first breath of desert air and his first steps in the human world. Created to be a weapon, he proved too powerful for his makers and has lived a sedated life hidden from humans. But H.A.L.F. 9 has escaped the underground lab he called home, and the sedation has worn off. He has never been more alive. More powerful. Or more deadly.

Erika Holt longs to ride her motorcycle east until pavement meets shore. She bides her time until graduation when she’ll say adios to the trailer she shares with her alcoholic mother and memories of her dead father. But a typical night in the desert with friends thrusts Erika into a situation more dangerous than she ever imagined.

Circumstances push the two together, and each must make a fateful choice. Will Erika help H.A.L.F. 9 despite her “don’t get involved” rule? And will H.A.L.F. 9 let Erika live even though he was trained to kill?

The two may need to forget their rules and training and if either is to survive the dangers of the deep beneath them.

Dream Cast for H.A.L.F.: The Deep Beneath
(Book 1 of the H.A.L.F. Series)

ERIKA HOLT: High school senior Erika Holt has lived in hot, dusty Ajo (pronounced Ah-HO), Arizona her whole life. She can’t wait to get out. Every time Erika gets on her motorcycle, she imagines driving east until pavement meets sand. Erika doesn’t plan on letting anything, not even her feelings for Jack Wilson, to stand in the way of her exit plans.

There’s just one little problem. Something big is brewing in the desert. Something Erika and her friends know nothing about. They may well wish they’d spent their Saturday night at home rather than cruising in the desert.

Actress Jordana Brewster from the Fast & Furious franchise is a bit old now to play Erika, but she embodies the look and spirit of Erika Holt. Jordana has the natural, earthy beauty that I picture when I think of Erika. And she also looks like she could kick some booty if she needed to – a must for anyone playing Erika Holt!

JACK WILSON: Carefree, guitar-playing poet Jack Wilson is new to Ajo. Jack began the summer as Erika's friend and ended it by falling in love with her. As soon as the three little words “I love you” left his mouth, Erika pulled back from him. But Jack's a patient guy, willing to hold back in the ‘just friends’ zone until he finds a way to convince Erika that she can’t live without him.

Jack would follow Erika to the ends of the Earth. But will he follow her farther than that?

Alex Pettyfer is a bit too old for the role (Jack is 17), but he has a perfect look to play Jack Wilson. His hair in these photos is dead on for what I picture for Jack – tousled and messy. And oh, those lovely blue eyes. All he needs is a guitar in his hands. Why in the world would Erika put this guy in the “friends” zone?!

IAN FREW: Ajo High School’s star quarterback and the hottest guy in the senior class, Ian Frew is Erika’s best friend. Soon he’ll be fighting for more than just points on the gridiron. But will the dangers that lie ahead force a wedge between Ian and his oldest friend?

Chace Crawford would be my pick to play Ian Frew. He is exactly how I pictured Ian while writing – hot and beautiful. But I think there’s more to Chace than just a “pretty” face – just like Ian.

COMMANDER LILLY STURGIS: Commander Sturgis is our last hope. She and her creations stand between salvation and total annihilation. At least that’s the way she sees it. When they need to win a battle, they call a general. When they need to win a war, they call her.

Charlize Theron has the perfect look to play Commander Sturgis. I think she can pull off the mixture of beauty, intelligence and grit required to play a complex character like Commander Sturgis.


Natalie is the author of H.A.L.F., a young adult science fiction series, and The Akasha Chronicles, a young adult fantasy trilogy. She lives in the high desert of Tucson, Arizona with her husband, tween daughter, and two young cats.

Natalie spends her time writing, reading, gaming, geeking out over nerd culture and cool science, hanging out on social media, and meeting readers and fans at festivals and comic cons throughout the western United States. She likes to walk in the desert, snorkel in warm waters, travel, and share excellent food and conversation with awesome people. Natalie supports the rights of both humans and non-humans to live a life free of suffering caused by people. She was raised an Ohio farm girl, lives in the desert Southwest, and dreams of living in a big city high rise.
