"Whisper of the Woodsquot; by D. G. Driver

Whisper of the Woods

A Juniper Sawfeather Novel #2

by D. G. Driver

 Juniper Sawfeather seems to have a talent for finding mythological creatures. Or maybe the creatures are finding her.

The mermaids she saved from the oil spill are long gone. There’s no evidence of them, and she’s been branded as a liar and a fake in the media and at school. Her environmental activist parents have moved on to a protest to save Old Growth trees from being chopped down. June isn’t particularly concerned with this cause, but that changes when she falls asleep at the base of a giant tree and wakes to find herself 40 feet in the air on one of its branches!

From this point on she becomes obsessed with the tree, and it appears the tree is becoming obsessed with her, too. Soon, she is trapped 170 feet above the ground, and the magical spirit that resides in the tree isn’t interested in letting her go free or allowing anyone else to save her. Is the tree spirit good or evil? Will Juniper’s feet ever touch the ground again?

She follows him to the Forest of Welkan far to the north where she discovers that Teladorn is under threat and will soon realize the depth of its loss in no longer having shape shifters.

"The Sapphire Legend Part 1" by E. L. TenenbaumThe Sapphire Legend
Part I

by E. L. Tenenbaum

Sapere has always been different.

In her tribe, select families are blessed with a gift that is passed through the generations from father to son. But something went wrong when Sapere was born, because she has her family’s gift and she shouldn’t.

When Sapere’s village is attacked the night of her wedding, the survivors flee to the Wild in hopes of finding refuge in a dangerous place filled with deadly predators. Now, Sapere feels like an outsider on the precipice of two worlds, unable to fit into the old way, unaccepted by the new, and terrified of being shunned by both.

Through the survivors’ fight for survival, Sapere learns that she can be a victim of circumstance or master of fate. Can she rise above the nature of her birth and mold her own future? Can she be herself and earn the villagers’ respect in their new world? Or will she forever be shackled by the anomaly that makes her different?

"The Great Forest of Shee" by Patricia GilkersonThe Great Forest of Shee

by Patricia Gilkerson

 “Find Arizopal!”

With those words from his desperately ill father, fifteen year-old Griffin begins his journey to the Great Forest of Shee, a mystical place, and difficult to navigate.

The Great Forest is Faerie itself and during his quest, Griffin will meet many magical and sometimes fearsome dwellers there. Befriended by some, challenged by others, Griffin finds he is not the person he thought he was. But who is he?

He has to use his wits and call on new friends to figure out first, how to save his father, next, how to rescue his mother and a beautiful half-elf named Indigo. And finally, how will he keep the Great Forest itself from being destroyed?

"Into the Deep" by Missy FlemingInto the Deep

by Missy Fleming

 No one understands the fury of the ocean like Zoey.

Ten years ago, she lost her leg in a freak shark attack. The night after her sixteenth birthday, she has yet to accept her awkward prosthetic limb or the fact she will always be different. Wary of the sea, and its hidden threats, she ventures to a bonfire at the beach. She’s mesmerized by its awesome power, wondering what she ever had to fear, until a rogue wave sweeps her into the cool, salty water.

Zoey believed mermaids were creatures of legend, characters in silly children’s stories, but it’s hard to ignore the captivating tail that’s suddenly appeared, or the sense of finally being whole. She abandons her life on land in search of answers about who she really is and where she came from.

What she discovers is a kingdom full of intrigue and danger, as well as a royal father she never knew existed. Settling into her role as a mermaid princess, she learns her family is under attack, both on land and in the water. Raging storms swell up, threatening coastal cities, and sea levels rise practically overnight, endangering the lives of everyone she loves. Determined to stop the strange phenomena, Zoey becomes caught up in the race to track down what, or who, is responsible for the catastrophic events.

But, Zoey possesses another secret, one born of legend and more powerful than any mer or human can imagine.

    Whisper In The Woods looks interesting!! I’d be happy to win any of these books.

    • Caroline says:

      Whisper of the Woods is an amazing story! Be sure to check out the first book, Cry of the Sea, as well. They can definitely be read as stand alones, but you get the full picture from reading Cry first. 🙂

      GOOD LUCK! 🙂

  4. Stacy Renee says:

    I think I would enjoy The Great Forest of Shee. I love stories that revolve around forests and forest dwellers.

    Into the Deep by Missy Fleming

  6. Barbara Stoker says:

    Into the deep. I love anything to do with water
    Thanks for the chance

  7. bn100 says:

    The Forest of Welkan sounds interesting

  8. Renee Rousseau says:

    I would like to win The Great Forest of Shee
    by Patricia Gilkerson because I love the cover, the synopsis and I have a sister who would love to read it also.

  9. You have so many wonderful books, it was hard to choose. I think I’d like The Sapphire Legend because of the female receiving the male’s birthright. I really want to see how the heroine overcomes the hardship of being shunned by her culture. This sounds like a fascinating series.

  10. Recipe Fairy says:

    I’m most excited about The Forest of Welkan! All the books are fascinating though!

  11. MJ says:

    They all look so good! I’ll have to say Sapphire Legend, but I’d be happy with any!

  12. Sarah Miles says:

    This is so hard to pick from! I’m torn between Into the Deep (I love mermaid novels) or Whisper of the Woods. Probably Into the Deep, though, since I’ve not read the first Juniper Sawfeather novel… 🙂

  13. BookLady says:

    I would love to win a copy of Into the Deep because mermaids are fascinating mythological creatures.

  14. Katherine Riley says:

    I like the premise of Into the Deep. Finding acceptance is sometimes very hard to do.

  15. Caroline says:

    Thank you to everyone for participating!
