Description from Goodreads:
(I made one slight modification to remove a spoiler for book one. It's spoiler free now)
Some secrets cannot be kept—in life or in death.
Months have passed since Rune has heard a single whisper from her long-dead mother, the great witch of Bavaria. But the absence of one evil has only made room for another.
Rune settles into a quiet life at Pyrmont Castle, taking care of two orphans left in the wake of the terrible witch hunt that claimed dozens of lives in the nearby village. As the days grow colder, the castle’s secrets beckon and Rune finds herself roaming where no one has set foot in a long time. In the bowels of the fortress is a locked room full of memories that hang like cobwebs—shelves stacked with jars, strange specimens, putrid liquids, and scrolls of spells. Rune is undeniably drawn to what she finds there, and she begins to dabble in the possibilities of magic, hoping to find a cure for the strangeness overwhelming the castle.
As secrets unspool, the delicate thread of Rune’s world is threatened when she realizes the key may lie in the dark forest she once called home and the boy she thought she knew.
Why I'm Excited:
I can't wait to get back to this enchanting, witchy world! The castles, the magic, the mystery and the creepy forest...OH MY!
I loved the first book, Forest of Whispers, so much and I've been very impatiently awaiting the sequel. Jennifer Murgia creates such amazing worlds with her words. She made me feel like I was right there and when I finished the book, I actually missed the place (the Black Forest of Bavaria) so much that I found myself Googling pictures of castles and forests (and cake) and wishing I had enough money to buy a plane ticket to go to there . . .
Anyway, you can check out my review of Forest of Whispers HERE. If you haven't read it yet and you want to, well, I'd like to give you a chance.
I am giving away an autographed copy of Forest of Whispers PLUS a really cool set of wooden runes to one lucky person!
This giveaway is US and Canada only.
I just had two International giveaways in a row that both had overseas winners. This box of runes is kind of heavy, too, so shipping would probably bankrupt me.
Also, please make sure the email you enter with is one that you check. If you enter with Facebook, it will give me the email you are registered with on Facebook. I will notify winners via email and give at least three days (and make at least two attempts to reach you) for winners to respond before choosing a new winner. I've had trouble reaching winners in the past, so I want to make sure I can reach whoever is chosen.
If you need to change the email for your entry (or assure that it's a valid one), you can click the little box in the top right corner of the Rafflecopter box (it has 3 lines on it). Log out and log in with email.
