Earth Excerpt +Giveaway



As part of the Earth Blog tour hosted by the awesome A Tale of Many Reviews today I have an excerpt of this book.........


by Shauna Granger

Blurb: Shayna and her two best friends have the abilities to manipulate and control the four elements, earth, air, water and fire. While learning to hone their growing powers, they discover a new and malicious presence in their sleepy beach town. Someone is performing blood magic and threatens to expose their small magical community. So far only small animals have been slaughtered, but then the nightmares start. 

Shayna suffers nightmares of being chased and sacrificed only to wake up bloodied and bruised. She thinks her magical blood is the ultimate target for the final blood rite. When an innocent girl, Tracy, is kidnapped Shayna knows it's only a ploy to draw her out; she can't let someone die because of her.


EXCERPT 

Jensen had stopped at the very edge of the front step when I turned on the light and was facing the door when I opened it. His skin looked luminescent in the darkness, making his blue eyes stand out in stark contrast, like an ocean just after a storm and the skies have opened up with brilliant sunlight.

 “What are you doing here?” I whispered, happy to hear my voice was steady, if not suspicious.

“I was hoping we could talk?” he had the courtesy to whisper too.

“It’s after eleven o’clock, my parents…” I made a vague gesture to the house behind me.

“Oh right… we could sit in my car.” He mimicked my motion behind him towards the road.

“Um… I don’t know, Jensen. I mean…” I let my voice trail off. There wasn’t much that I’d like better than to sit in a dark private place with him where no one would interrupt us. I mentally blinked, realizing I hadn’t even admitted that to myself yet.

“Please?” His voice sounded a little strained, like it was very important that I say yes. I sighed and looked back towards the hallway. I could hear my father’s distant snoring and the rest of the house was quiet. If my parents woke up and found me out of the house without permission – in a car with a boy no less – I’d be grounded for sure. I knew I shouldn’t risk that with our plans for the next night, but a bigger part of me really wanted to go to him.

“Ok, hold on.” I put up one finger and then closed the door silently behind me as I stepped back into the house. I dashed as quietly as I could back to my room and grabbed my rain boots and my house keys. I kept them cupped in my hand to keep them from making any noise and made it back out the front door. Jensen had gone a few steps down our front walk and was staring out at the road with his back to me. I realized my stomach was tied up in knots that made it hard to breathe. Me, nervous?
