RELEASE DAY PARTY EXCERPT & GIVEAWAY: The Star Child by Stephanie Keyes

September 21, 2012 Blog Tour, Excerpt 8

On Wednesday I had a review of The Star Child by Stephanie Keyes as part of the blog tour that’s happening right now to promote the release. Well, today is RELEASE DAY!! Congratulations to Stephanie! To celebrate the occasion I have an excerpt from The Star Child, and a few other things, to share with you.

The bogs gave way to forest again, but the trees were more spaced out, easier to navigate. The sun was out, or what I assumed was the sun, though we were underground. Learning from our earlier mistakes, we kept fistfuls of salt ready in our pockets and walked in tense positions, hands at the ready in case we needed to protect ourselves. We wouldn’t stop to rest, and I didn’t ask about it. Calienta would want to keep going. So onward we went.
After a time, the woods were overcome by darkness, and the odd shapes and sounds started to give me the creeps. This impression I kept to myself; I was a brave warrior, after all. When she produced a small, lighted lantern from who knew where, I tried not to let my relief show. I took the lamp from her. The path wound familiarly in front of me.
In a heartbeat, I found myself lying flat on my back. Although the path seemingly continued for miles, the way was blocked. Upon closer inspection, it appeared as though a glass window was preventing us from going any further. Anxiously, I looked at the path through the glass. The path was visible but we were unable to follow it.

“Stephanie Keyes is a wonderful voice for a new generation of YA readers. She has skilfully blended mythology and faerie-tale into an original and enthralling story. Pure magick! I’m looking forward to more” – Maya Snow, Author of Sisters Of The Snow

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Harry Potter, #4)


The world is about to be cloaked in darkness. Only one can stop the night. Kellen St. James has spent his entire life being overlooked as an unwanted, ordinary, slightly geeky kid. That is until a beautiful girl, one who has haunted his dreams for the past eleven years of his life, shows up spinning tales of a prophecy. Not just any old prophecy either, but one in which Kellen plays a key role. Suddenly, Kellen finds himself on the run through a Celtic underworld of faeries and demons, angels and gods, not to mention a really ticked off pack of hellhounds, all in order to save the world from darkness. But will they make it in time?

Special Teaser Quote: “You gave me bad meat. I think we’re even.” Lugh to Kellen, The Star Child
