Gabriella Lepore stops by today to introduce us to her new novel Evanescent. I’m pleased to be a part of her tour and hope you all hop on over and purchase your copy! I’ll post buy links at the end.
When Bronwen Snow is pulled from her cottage in the middle of the night, she finds herself seeking the help of three mysterious boys who reside in an abandoned castle deep in the hillside. With only a hasty handwritten note and a vague sense of dread to guide her, Bronwen is forced to put her trust in the eccentric and willful Felix Cavara and his eternal curse – immortality.
“Sometimes visions are the key to unlocking the most coveted of secrets. And they are always given to me for a reason. I believe this particular reason was to save my granddaughter’s life.”
“Why should I trust you?” Felix challenged. “What if there is no cure? What if this is merely the reckless act of a desperate woman?”
“All I can give you is my word.”
“Then, in return, I shall give you mine. I vow to protect Bronwen. However,” he went on, staring deeply into Ada’s eyes, “I will not be played for a fool. If you do not produce the cure, then I will take both of your lives instead. Those are my terms. Decide now if you wish to accept.”
“You can’t threaten us like that!” Bronwen exclaimed.
But Ada offered her hand to Felix, sealing the deal.
“Then it is settled,” Felix declared. “Come hell or high water, when this is all over, at least one of us here will not make it out alive.
