After Sebastian Falls by Celeste Holloway last week, today’s Wednesday feature is another YA Urban Fantasy The Blood She Betrayed by Cheryse Durrant. Here’s the book trailer. Cheryse is a successful author with a three-book contract from Clan Destine Press, Australia.
A warrior princess comes to Earth to find an ancient artefact to
destroy the heart-devouring demons plaguing her lands. When she
teams up with wealthy Max from Brisbane, her quest becomes more
through her muscles as she shadowed the lean boy-man away
from the mansion, sidestepping a gold-speckled toad in her path.

Please be careful of the dark, Alex, Crystal, Heather, Noopur, PJ and MJ. Those Taloners attack fast. Hope you all have an awesome December 🙂
Thanks, Kengwira! There's a lot of misunderstandings in the book due to misunderstandings between Max and Shahkara. I'm not very good at humour but they've created the humour themselves! Lexa, I love fast-paced books. Many readers have said they couldn't stop reading it when they started. That fills me with both delight and a little guilt…
Thanks, Daya, for sharing my novel on Amlokiblogs. I've had fabulous results with the physical book tour, but I'm still struggling to promote the eBook – please share with your friends if you can and let me know if you'd like to review my book. I can send you a review copy. Trisha, it was awesome fun setting The Blood She Betrayed in Australia. You're absolutely a native by now. I can sense it in your blood! 🙂
Sounds like a very fun story indeed! And I like to see stories set in my (not really native, more adopted) land! 🙂
Sounds like an interesting book.
It sounds like a book with action and twists in it – my favorite kind! Wishing Cheryse much success! 🙂
Love the way you write the story with two distinct mindsets running side by side.
Yet another wonderful story.
thanks for sharing
Have wonderful time ahead.
The elevator pitch alone sold me. This sounds like an awesome read!
Oooh! This has got interesting all over it. =)
