Publication date: May 31st 2018
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Fairy Tales, Fantasy
“I shouldn’t have to tell you this isn’t a fairy story…”
After her parents’ car crash ten years before, Amie Wentworth trusts books more than people. She may be a writer, but she believes in reality over fiction. She ignores the unexplained mysteries surrounding her, never mind the dreams of a past life, or the fact she can fry technology with a touch. Not even a timely invitation from her long-lost uncle in England gives Amie incentive for anything other than ire.
Until she is stabbed in an alley and brought back to life by a handsome stranger. Soon Amie is dragged into the very sort of tale she is used to selling. To make matters worse, the man who saved her life keeps turning up and her would-be-murderer is still at large.
After crossing the Atlantic to her father’s homeland, she discovers a world beyond imagining. Silver Hollow is a place of ancient traditions and supernatural dangers, where everything is the opposite of what it seems and few escape sane. Faced with an impossible choice, Amie is forced to confront a deadly family legacy while remembering a life she soon wishes to forget.
**Previously published in 2012. This NEW EDITION has been FULLY REVISED AND EXPANDED. The original novel is now no longer available.**
Als onderdeel van de blogtour mag ik een teaser met jullie delen.
The green eyes staring back from her mirror widened as her scar chose to suddenly ache. A chill lay thick on the new skin, piercing through her supernaturally mended heart. She could almost still feel the cool blade of the knife and smell the pungent stink of her own blood.
At the same time, need for the loo, as the Brits called it, finally forced her out of her fortress of solitude. She was grateful for the excuse to move her legs again and leave her morbid musings behind. Unfortunately the toilet was in the next compartment down, and thus far Amie had managed not to run into a single other occupant of this train besides the ticket master. It was an odd train, she had to admit, as she braced against antiquated wood panels and tread thick blue carpet. Like an Agatha Christie novel, the proper setting for a real-life mystery.
Either side of her compartment was empty, dimly lit and despite the period film atmosphere, and disturbingly silent. She reached the door that would allow her to make the switch over and turned the knob without success. Amie beat against the door, hoping someone would hear her in the next car. “Hello? Anyone there?”
Silence trapped her words and the steady clanking clang beneath her feet drowned the rest. She leaned against the door to listen for signs of life, then pulled away to try the knob again.
No sooner had she grazed her fingers against gilded brass when the knob gave and the door pushed against her. Instinct propelled her forward and she threw her weight back against the wood. A frustrated grunt answered on the other side and Amie bit back a scream. Logic said it was most likely some other passenger on his or her way back from the toilet. Ten years of well-cultivated paranoia and her recent attack screamed otherwise.
The man on the opposite side of the door cursed and doubled his efforts but Amie held fast.
Don’t let him touch you, not ever again, unless you want him to finish the job!
She recalled the hatred in her attacker’s electric blue eyes then and with a grunt pushed the door into its frame with a resounding click. She didn’t waste time waiting for her attacker to try again. The train jolted, nearly throwing her off balance. Amie scrambled to her feet and ran for her compartment. She banged her fingers trying to slide the door shut. Fear would win over logic this time, it seemed. She was half embarrassed with herself for freaking out. But her voice betrayed her
Jennifer Silverwood was raised deep in the heart of Texas and has been spinning yarns a mile high since childhood. In her spare time, she reads and writes and tries to sustain her wanderlust, whether it’s the Carpathian Mountains in Transylvania, the highlands of Ecuador, or a road trip to the next town. Always on the lookout for her next adventure, in print or reality, she dreams of one day proving to the masses that everything really is better in Texas. She is the author of three series–Heaven’s Edge, Wylder Tales and the Borderlands Saga–and the stand-alone titles Stay and She Walks in Moonlight. She released her first serialized Urban Fantasy, Angel Blue in August 2018.
