Scion Of The Sun Blog Tour: Guest Post + Giveaway

http://www.chapter-by-chapter.com/tour-schedule-scion-of-the-sun-by-nicola-marsh-presented-by-month9books/

Today I'm pleased to welcome author Nicola Marsh to the blog to talk a little bit about the first book in her new Solar Snatchers series, Scion of the Sun. In this first installment, protagonist Holly spends time at a boarding school for gifted students called C.U.L.T, so I thought a fun way to get to know her would be by putting ourselves in her shoes and taking a closer look at what she gets up to during a typical day at school. You can find the full list of participating blogs on the tour here, and don't forget to check out the bottom of the post for details on a tour-wide giveaway!

A DAY IN THE LIFE OF HOLLY BURTON

• Traditions of the Innerworld

• Celtic Gods and Goddesses

SCION OF THE SUN
(available now from Month9Books)


When she least expects it, sixteen-year old Holly Burton’s unremarkable life is shaken to the core. A vision of the mother Holly never knew leaves her questioning everything she believes.

Eager for answers, Holly enrolls at a boarding school for highly gifted students in Wolfebane, New Hampshire. But things will get worse before they get better, as Holly accidentally transports to a parallel existence where she's confronted by a dark and ancient evil.

With the help of Joss, a sexy alpha warrior sworn to protect her, and her new BFF, the equally swoon-worthy Quinn, Holly faces her fears and an unlikely adversary in a showdown that is worse than anything she could’ve possibly imagined …

  12. Oy! Finally a much needed breath of originality! I'd love to study Celtic Gods & Goddesses and Druid Bewitching Season. Compared to this schedule, my students have it so hard! It's a wonder they didn't die of boredom.
    I love the sound of this worldbuilding, love the cover, love the title, love it all. And I can't wait to meet Holly.

  16. Lithology sounds positively dull. But mastering teleportation? I'd be all over that! :D I love the sound of this book and think it could be my sort of thing. Also, Jennifer L. Armentrout had good things to say about it, so I'm definitely curious now. :) Thanks so much for sharing!
