Blog Tour: Ruby & 2 Giveaways! CLOSED


Today, I have the pleasure of hosting a blog tour stop for Amanda Burke's book, Ruby.  Below you can check out the blurb, an exclusive excerpt, a giveaway for a paperback copy, and enter to win a grand prize! Wow, that's a lot of stuff!  So, let's get started....

Amanda Burke

When Ruby is sent to live in a huge manor with her distant grandmother, she
has no idea what the future holds. It’s hard enough to deal with a new town and
a mysterious boy. Little does she know that she’s part of a prophecy that dates
back to the Salem Witch Hunts.
Years ago, a witch cast a spell on the one child who could save the world from
darkness – and it’s Ruby’s job to protect it.


She looked down to see that a long, thin branch had broken off from the log and it was now protruding from just above her hip. Instinctively, she grasped it in her hand to pull it out and as she tugged, she screamed as excruciating pain swept through her body. The branch refused to budge an inch no matter how hard she tried, so with rapidly fading strength she waved her hand over it to free it with magic. It worked and there was a loud suction sound as it shot out and she screamed again and rolled around on the ground in sheer agony from the damage it had caused.  

After a minute or so, she managed to stand and force herself to stumble on as the rain became more and more torrential. Feeling woozy and sick, she was also becoming increasingly disorientated and it made her fail to see that the sudden influx of water had caused some of the road ahead to become waterlogged and partially give way.  Without even realizing it was there, she tumbled down into the deep crevice and slammed onto the earth below.  

This time she didn’t even try to get up. She just lay there in the mud with the rain pelting down on her as her vision swam in and out.  

From somewhere nearby she heard a dog bark and a male voice order it to be quiet.  Then a whooshing sound filled her ears before heavy feet landed beside where she lay.  

The last thing she felt were a pair of powerful arms lifting her up off the ground and then she allowed herself to drift into the inviting blackness.
