Book Blitz w/ #giveaway: Ice Crypt by Tiana Warner @tianawarner

Excerpt from:
Ice Crypt

Chapter One – The Massacre Committee

Hanging from the crooked branch of a maple tree wasn’t that glamorous—not what
my people would expect from an honoured Massacre survivor. Legs swinging to try
and get a foothold, strands of hair clinging to my face, I heaved myself onto the next
branch.

This would have been easier if I’d had the use of both hands.

Out of breath and halfway up, I paused, deciding how best to continue. The tree had
forked and my legs were splayed, one foot against each trunk. In my fist, the owlet
gave a feeble hoot.

I glared at him. He could hardly be called cute, with his sparse white fluff and
oversized feet.

“Your family reunion better be worth all of this,” I said.

I pushed off one trunk and wrapped my limbs around the other, then shimmied
higher until I was level with the nest.

Two owlets peered back at me, identical to the one in my fist.

“Gaawhist,” I said. Home, sweet home.

I placed my rescue next to his siblings, where he toppled sideways and blinked a few
times. I poked him to make sure I hadn’t squeezed him too tightly. He ruffled himself
and settled in.

Maybe I couldn’t help everyone survive, but I could, at least, save this one life.
I just hoped the mother would return soon.

I leaned against the trunk and caught my breath, my thoughts turning back to what
I’d come here for. I inhaled slowly, letting the sweet scent of maple buds calm me.
From this height, the wooden, mossy cabin below seemed less imposing. I could see
how these grounds might have once been used for camping—back when seaside
camping was not a life-threatening activity. Now, this cabin was one of many
classrooms at the Safe Training Base. Once a place to connect with wilderness, now
a place to learn the best way to slaughter a sea demon.

After forming an unlikely connection with Lysi, a mermaid she was trained to kill, Meela is determined to stop the war between humans and merpeople for good. She knows of a legendary weapon that could bring peace if she uses it against King Adaro, ruler of the Pacific Ocean. But her people have plans for future Massacres and refuse to help her uncover it.

IMDB Trailer
Review: If this isn't fantastic or what? I loved the book and I'm always a little leary about watching the movie after I loved the book, but this one was worth the watch. 
I loved the dystopian zombie world. A bacteria has taken over the minds of those who are infected and they crave human flesh, but the children born with this disease arm mostly alive. They can learn and love, just like any normal child. The only difference is, they still crave flesh.
There are so many twists and turns in the story. It kept me on the edge of my seat. It wasn't really scary like a lot of zombie movies so if you are not a big fan of horror I think you would be safe with the semi freaky movie.
5 out of 5…

What I'm Reading This Week | #WeeklyMenu Week #255

Its Monday again. Always Monday. We go through the week and them come back to Monday. They day that I have to myself, or wished I had to myself. Really I share it with everyone. Never time to myself. Never a quiet moment away from people. It makes it hard, since I need my quiet time to rewind and reset for the week. I don't get that. All I get is angry. How am I supposed to feel better if I can't have my quiet time?

On the other side of things, I finally sat down to write. It was a nice day. The sun was shining, there was a cool breeze and an open pick-nick table on my lunch break. Perfect weather for a mid day writing session. Got a lot done on my new manuscript. I'm hoping this one will land me an agent, but we shall see.

Guess what I' reading this week? Ok, you probably already know because of the picture. Exit West. It serves two purposes for me. Its on my shortest books I wanted to read list and also takes care of one of my bingo spots, a book about today's is…
