Release day: Splinter
Today is the official release of Splinter by Rebecca Raine (ebook, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
Ignite the magick within, or be hunted in the dark.
When Rachel Fallon inherits the estate of her grandmother, Maddie, she believes she’s finally found a place to call home. That is, until a terrifying experience convinces her Maddie’s death was no accident, but murder. Now, her search for answers will uncover a world brimming with magick, where vampires are real and thirsty for blood.
Nick Hunter has left behind his own splinter of reality to follow Maddie’s killer to this place of disbelievers – where people have not learned to fear nightfall. Despite his difficulty accessing the magick here, Nick is determined to find the vampire and put an end to his madness.
Rachel’s presence is both a complication and an all too tempting distraction – despite the force of the magick she unknowingly possesses. When she becomes the focus of the vampire’s attention, Nick and Rachel must work together to stop him. But as the flames of desire burn hot between them, the truth about the night Maddie died threatens to destroy them both.
Rebecca dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
As I looked into a mirror one evening, a thought occurred to me: What would I do if I saw something in the reflection that shouldn’t be there? Before long my very ordinary mirror had transformed into a gateway to an alternate splinter of reality, where the use of magick is a valued skill and all manner of mythical creatures roam the streets at night. My debut novel, Splinter, was born. Set in the fictitious town of Eatons Valley, about an hour south of Brisbane, Splinter follows the story of Rachel Fallon, the world’s most stubborn sceptic, and Nick Hunter, the splinter-hopping Mythic Warden who must convince her magick is real. Please note: Flaming trees, mad vampires, backyard fireworks, and love scenes hot enough to set the sheets alight are also included for your reading pleasure.
