Whirl Blog Tour with Author Emma Raveling

Welcome, welcome everyone!!! Today I have the FABULOUS Emma Raveling on my blog as part of her Whirl blog tour *grins* Whirl is her debut novel and part of the Ondine Quartet series!! I'm so excited to be able to host a giveaway because not only is this a great book, who doesn't love the chance to win a free book?  So let me tell you a little about Whirl ...

~ The Official Blurb ~

Seventeen-year-old Kendra Irisavie is an ondine, a water elemental caught in the middle of an ancient war. The Aquidae are immortal dark demons who will stop at nothing to destroy the fragile balance of the Elemental world. Fierce and independent, Kendra has always played by her own rules. Gifted with the powerful magic of Virtue and trained to be a deadly fighter, she has spent her life breaking hearts and getting into trouble. When her life explodes one violent night in a northern California city, a dark stranger appears, promising answers to her mysterious past. Alone and with no one to trust, she must now navigate through a dangerous new world, face the temptations of a forbidden romance, and remain true to her duty and destiny. All while the Aquidae continue to hunt her down, in the hopes of eliminating her forever… An edgy urban fantasy/paranormal romance, Whirl is recommended for older teens and mature readers due to strong language and mild sexual situations.

You can buy the book : Amazon / Barnes & Noble

~ About the Author ~

Emma Raveling is a fantasy author who leads a slightly eccentric life traveling throughout the world with her accommodating husband and charming, neurotic dog.
Hopelessly addicted to coffee and diet coke, she has a strange love of spreadsheets and organizational tools because they give her the illusion that she is somehow in control of the chaos that is her life. A dedicated practitioner of vipassana meditation, Emma loves to cook and often spends time scouring the Internet for new recipes. She adores beautiful art such as painting and sculpture, classical music, lyrical writing, and great graphic design.
Whirl is her debut book. She is currently busy at work writing Billow, the second installment of the Ondine Quartet series.

I really like the coverpage! Simple yet meaningful!

Emma said...

Ack - I think Blogger ate up my comment!

Just wanted to say thanks, Shilpa. I designed the cover myself with a specific concept I had in mind for the series, so I really appreciate your comment!

I love to read about the paranormal. I find it especially exciting to find a book with new kinds of paranormal creatures, not just the everyday vampires and werewolves. This looks like a book I would devour. Also, if I had to choose, I would choose destiny. After all, there is no way to escape it.

The book sounds amazing! I really liked the excerpt at the author's website. Thank you so much for letting us know about the book! :)

I think I would choose forbidden romance.

Marta and SilverRose,

Thank you so much for your comments!

I think Bels posed such an interesting question and it's amazing how we can each be pulled so strongly to one or the other.

Part of what I loved about writing the book was that the protagonist, Kendra, faces such a difficult dilemma. Love or destiny - is it really something that you can choose?

Thanks to you both for taking the time to enter! :)

Thank you for sharing with us today. I Whirl definitely sounds like an interesting read and I would love to read it. Destiny or Forbidden, well I tried forbidden and that did not work out too well LOL and then found my destiny and we have been together for twenty-six plus years - Destiny must be the way to go for me :) I appreciate the opportunity to win a copy of Whirl! I am a follower (GFC Denise Zaky).
