If you follow me on Twitter, you know that my humble blog, a mere 105 days in age, reached 100 followers yesterday. To commemorate this shining moment, I would like to give back.
Today, I am having a giveaway. One advanced copy of The Darkness of Light by Tammy Farrell. You may have seen my review of her book earlier this week. To summarize, I absolutely love Farrell’s characters. I’m a sucker for any form of fantasy that touches on mythology. In this case, Farrell drew upon Irish mythology and wove a fantastic tale.

Mara can tell she’s different, but isn’t sure why. After she encounters two mysterious strangers, she discovers her secret is but a drop in an ocean of many. She is a Dia, a descendant of ancient gods, and her mother sacrificed herself to protect Mara from their past.
Summoned by an uncle she didn’t know existed, Mara thinks she’s found the family she’s always wanted, and Corbin, a love she never thought possible. But not everything is as it seems. Her uncle has other motives for protecting her, and her mentor, Malcolm, becomes so jealous, he’ll do anything to get what he wants. When tragedy strikes, and the true darkness among them comes to light, Mara discovers that sometimes love can give you everything, and obsession can take it all away. With her powers gone, and destiny calling, she has to look deep within to find the courage to save herself. Mara, along with Corbin and her new-found family, must fight to get back what was taken, or die trying.”

The winner of the giveaway will be announced on the morning of December 26th. Since this giveaway is for an eBook, I recommend let me know what kind of e-reader you have so I can send you the eBook in the right format. Otherwise, I’ll have to ask you what kind of reader you have when I send you the email notifying you of your victory. That’s no problem, but it will take a bit longer for you to receive your prize.
