The A to Z April Blogging Challenge 2013 has reached its first weekend. If you’re participating in the challenge, what are your Sunday plans? I’m co-hosting the A to Z on Amlokiblogs, so drop me a comment there if you have something to say about the challenge itself. On this blog, I’ll be featuring mostly indie-published book excerpts for all of April. I love reading, and supporting author-friends, and this is a good way to do both.
Today, for F, I give you a YA Fantasy/ Paranormal: Fractured Soul by Rachel McClellan. It is the second installment in the YA fantasy/paranormal series that continues to follow the main character, Llona Reese.
Elevator Pitch: Llona will do whatever it takes to protect her newfound friends and home, but the dark plot that is threatening Lucent Academy, a school that’s supposed to be a safe place for Auras, may be too powerful for even Llona to defeat.
Excerpt: I slumped against the wall and slid to the floor. I stared at the window, waiting for the inevitable night. Hours passed. I was practically willing the light from my room. I was so transfixed that I didn’t answer when May knocked on the door and called my name. And then, slowly, as the sun set, darkness crept toward me. I smiled.
The moment my room went entirely black and I heard no movement from within the school, I opened the window. The faint sound of hundreds of heartbeats rose from the forest. They seemed to be calling me. The creatures of the night.
Watch the book trailer here. YA Paranormal is a popular genre, and its fans might fall in love with the premise of this book. Will you follow Llona’s journey?
