Hope you all have had a great Christmas. An ebook sale is going on and I thought I'd let you know so you can grab the book before the sale end. :) I got this one for myself, and I think it looks really good.
Despite the fact that she's on track for competing in the Olympics, and he's practically raised his younger brothers since they lost their mom in a car accident, Clara Mandras and Andrew Stevenson are pretty much normal teens. They have normal hopes, normal dreams, and they live in a normal world.
All this is torn away from them when they are thrust into another world and declared Water Princess and Fire Prince. With no experience ruling a country, meeting each other for the first time, and being expected to fight the Lady Dragon – an evil sorceress plaguing the world of Rizkaland – Clara and Andrew are underprepared and inexperienced. Unless they learn to work together despite their standing opposition, Rizkaland's hope will be lost.
What is to come will change their lives forever. Click here or the book cover to get it on Kindle (ENDS 12-26)

Veronica doesn’t think she’s going crazy. But why can’t anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes?
When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months. But the Scottish countryside holds other plans. Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna’s great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation.
Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica’s daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they’ve longed for… or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.
I was in a store a little while ago and saw this book, and decided to get it. I must say I really enjoyed it. Two girls go to Scotland, brought to a mysterious new land, and fight a dark and devious enemy. With few allies, the girls must prove their innocence and work to rid the land of the evil.
As a lover of fiction, ball gowns, and new worlds, I loved Doon. The characters were awesome, and I feel the authors did a wonderful job keeping me at the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down! You feel like your in the story, emerged into the mystery and fight against the evil that is quickly spreading.
I would definitely suggest this book.
I would rate this book 5 out of 5 stars

Summary: The Darkwater Claims All Who Enter It.
All But One. When one man is brutally murdered and the priest he works for mortally wounded, Willet Dura, reeve to the king of Bunard, is called to investigate. As he begins to question the dying priest, the man pulls Willet close and screams in a foreign tongue. Then he dies without another word.
Willet returns to his task, but the clues to the crime lead to contradictions and questions without answers, and his senses are skewed. People he touches appear to have a subtle shift, as though he can divine their deepest thoughts. In a world divided between haves and have-nots, gifted and common, Willet soon learns he's been passed the rarest gift of all--a gift that's not supposed to exist.
Now Willet must pursue the murderer still on the loose in Bunard even as he's pulled into a dangerous conflict that threatens not only his city, but his entire world--a conflict that will force him to come to terms with his inability to remember how he escaped the Darkwater Forest--and what happened to him inside it.
"Book one in the Darkwater Saga is filled with suspense, intrigue and action. As readers get to know the characters, Carr seamlessly immerses them into his fascinating kingdom. This story sets the stage for a series fantasy fans will love."--RT Book Reviews
I read the short story prequel to Shock of Night, and was immediately intrigued by it. The suspense kept me glued to the pages of this book, and the twists and turns of the plot continually surprised me. As I have read the previous trilogy by Patrick W Carr, I must say that that the Darkwater Saga surpass it. The characters are well described, and the story is well paced.
I love Willet and all the other characters, and how you feel like your right there in the story. This action story is a must read, and will not disappoint you.
I received this book from Bookfun for an honest review.
I rate this nook 5 out of 5 stars.
