Following the daring escape, Laila seeks the path of a warrior and vows revenge against the Rendow Clan.

  1. This sounds like a great read, and I wish Angie all the best of luck.

    1. You won this book! Congrats! I need you to contact me via another comment or the contact form on http://writersonreading.blogspot.ca so we can complete your prize!

  2. This book really caught my eye, and it was probably the book cover that first did it...but then I read the back. Then, I read the sample. I must say, this book has me intrigued, and I have not even read it yet (but I hope to)!

    1. Polaris, I know what you mean. I had the opposite reaction, for I got to read the book before seeing the cover. Later, I couldn't believe how perfectly the cover captured Angie's book. It was as though everything I had been imagining came to life! :) I hope you get to read it soon too. Remember to check back on June 15 to see who won!

  3. Jcoolbroth won this giveaway. If I don't hear from entrant I will draw another name. Check out other giveaways still running!
