May Club Read: Shadow Shifts
Hi everyone ! I'm delighted to share with you today the best news I could ever have - Writerly Yours is officially launching it's blog tour service by hosting its first ever blog tour. That I could start this blog tour service with the launch of Shadow Shifts is what makes the news even more special.
Shadow Shifts, the second book in the Liminal Lights series written by dear friend and author J.M Bogart was released online recently and to celebrate the release, we at Writerly Yours have put together a blog tour with lots of interesting features.
Before I tell you more about the tour, let me introduce you to the world of Liminals and Shadows.
The Liminal Series is written for the younger spectrum of YA readers, making it suitable for middle grade readers, too. As one reviewer stated, "Those who once cherished Tinker Bell, but have grown past her, may once again enjoy what we shall now know as Liminals."
Liminal Lights - Book One of Liminal Lights Trilogy
What if faerie magic is real?
Nadia discovers an ancient truth hidden by Liminals, coveted by Shadow Monsters, and protected by humans.
Somewhere, between faerie legends and story books, lies the truth to magic. It grows in children, matures, and is eventually captured by Liminal beings. These small, faerie-like creatures harvest and manipulate it, crafting it into the talents and skills inherent in humans. The rest, they keep for themselves in an effort to sustain their own life forces.
The human race is evolving, forcing Bean, Pritt, and Tissa to find new ways of harvesting human magic to save their own kind. Nadia’s power, found in her talent as an artist, is the last hope for these Liminal beings who find themselves caught between light and shadow. Liminals aren’t the only ones after her magic, so are the creatures who lurk under the bed, hide in the darkness, and go bump in the night.
Shadow Shifts - Book Two of Liminal Lights Trilogy
After Bean fails to secure Nadia’s energy in book one, the Liminals find their race facing the peril of extinction. Their energy is fading fast while their mortal enemies, the Shadow-monsters, gain strength every day.
Needing answers, Bean and her comrades turn to an ancient wisdom long hidden by their elders. Willing to risk everything to save their race, they draw on this knowledge in an attempt to destroy their enemies so they can return balance to a world that’s quickly falling into darkness.
The more they learn of the power of their ancestors, the more secrets they discover lurking out of reach.
It’s clear that Liminals aren’t the only ones threatened by the growing power of the Shadow-monsters.
Subliminal Souls - Book Three of Liminal Lights Trilogy
Releasing this winter 2017
Now don't you want to meet the wonderful author of this trilogy ?
Meet J.M. Bogart
J.M. Bogart believes there’s a spark of magic in every person, regardless of age or background. Her upper Middle Grade novels are written with bright and imaginative youth in mind. She hopes to provide fun and appropriate content combined with challenging language and concepts for readers drifting in those precocious middle years. Ms. Bogart spends her days writing, editing, and caring for her very busy family. She used to dream of the day when Mary Poppins would swoop in to help with the children, but now that they are older she wishes those chaotic days filled with giggles and sunshine hadn’t disappeared quite so fast.
Now that you got to know the book, I'm sure you must want to read it too, especially if you like Young Adult and Fantasy genres.
Here's where you can get yourself a copy of either or both the books :
You can also win paperback copies of both the books if you enter the giveaway. Check out the tour schedule before you scroll down all the way.
