Ciara Knight’s Weighted

on August 21, 2012 in Misc

I am so happy to be part of Ciara Knight’s Release Day Blitz for her new book, Weighted.

As you may know,  Ciara is a sweetheart who also happens to be a  popular and prolific writer.  I’ve read her lovely YA novella, Love’s Long Shadow, which I highly recommend, while her YA novel The Curse of Gremdon is on the to-read stack beside my bed.  Now, of course, Weighted (a “Prequel Novelette”) will be joining them.

Here are a few facts about the lady…

Ciara writes to ‘Defy the Dark’ with her fantasy and paranormal books.  Her debut novel, The Curse of Gremdon, was released to acclaimed reviews, securing a Night Owl Top Pick and five stars from the Paranormal Romance Guild.  Also, Book I, Rise From Darkness, from her debut young adult Battle For Souls series, secured glowing reviews and won July Book of the Month from Long and Short Reviews.
Her first love, besides her family, reading, and writing, is travel.  She’s backpacked through Europe, visited orphanages in China, and landed in a helicopter on a glacier in Alaska.

Ciara is extremely sociable so please feel free to connect with her at her blog, website, Twitter, Goodreads, or Facebook.

And here, of course, is the blurb for Weighted

The Great War of 2185 is over, but my nightmare has just begun.  I am being held captive in the Queen’s ship awaiting interrogation.  My only possible ally is the princess, but I’m unsure if she is really my friend or a trap set by the Queen to fool me into sharing the secret of my gift.  A gift Ikeep hidden even from myself.  It swirls inside my body begging for release, but it is the one thing the Queen can never discover.  Will I have the strength to keep the secret?  I’ll know the answer soon.  If the stories are true about the interrogators, I’ll either be dead or a traitor to my people by morning.

Now how can you possibly resist a story like that?

Of course I’ve read the first chapter for Weighted and it’s terrific.  You can find it HERE.

Thank you, Ciara, for giving us another great read.

    Michael and Ciara — I’m so glad I’m not the only one who goofs up. Really, that usually is my talent. (And goof is a nice word.)
