The Black Shard by Victoria Simcox Giveaway {3 Winners!}



You may remember that I posted about The Magic Warble. Well, guess what? The Author Victoria Simcox has now offered a giveaway for book 2 of the series: The Black Shard. 
 
The Black Shard
 
The Black Shard, Victoria Simcox’s fast-paced, intricately woven sequel to The Magic Warble, takes Kristina Kingsly and her schoolmates back to Bernovem … and into a thrilling, often dangerous adventure.

Kristina’s stay at summer horse camp is horrible to say the least, and it’s all because Hester and Davina are there as well, making her life miserable. When Hester’s cruel prank goes terribly wrong, it’s actually what sends the three girls back to the magical land of Bernovem. In Bernovem, Kristina is very excited to see her former friend, Prince Werrien. When he invites her to sail with him on his ship to his homeland Tezerel, putting it simply, Kristina can’t refuse.

Reunited with her gnome, dwarf, animal, fairy friends … and best of all, Werrien, things seem like they couldn’t get any better for Kristina. But when Werrien becomes fascinated with an unusual seeing stone, the “Black Shard”, Kristina is haunted by a ghostlike old hag. Struggling against suspicion, guilt, illness, and ultimately the one who wants to possess her soul, Kristina will see it’s in her weakest moment that she will encounter more strength than she has ever known.


Make sure that you check out Victoria Simcox's Blog! Do you want to know more about The Black Shard? Here is an excerpt from Chapter 6:
 
“Clover and Looper!” Kristina said. Then she held the palms of
her hands up for them to land on. Clover landed on one and Looper
on the other. “I was hoping I’d get to see you two.” There was clear
excitement in her voice.

Clover looked the same as the last time Kristina had been in
Bernovem, but Looper had changed some.

“Looper, you’ve grown a little taller,” Kristina said.

“An eighth of an inch to be exact,” Looper said proudly, standing
as tall as he possibly could.

Clover flew off Kristina’s hand and again hovered in front of her
face. Then suddenly, another fairy, this one a teenage boy, appeared at Clover’s side.
“Kristina, I’d like you to meet my friend, Sage,” Clover said,
smiling gloriously.

“Uh … Sis? Don’t you mean your boyfriend?” Looper quickly added.

Clover’s tiny cheeks turned hot pink, and she gave Looper an
austere, older-sister look, meant to discourage him from saying more.

Even though Sage was no more than three inches tall, Kristina
was amazed at how handsome he was, with his shimmering, blueblack
hair and baby-blue eyes.

“Nice to meet you, Sage,” Kristina said.

“Likewise,” Sage said, giving her a composed wink. “I’ve heard a
lot about you,” he added coolly.

“Oh?” Kristina said apprehensively, her eyes shifting downward.
Even though Kristina had made her peace with Clover the last time
she was in Bernovem, her thoughts gravitated to the many arguments
that they had engaged in before then.

“Clover really looks up to you,” Sage added.

Kristina’s eyes lit up. “Really?” she said, rather surprised to hear it.

“No doubt; she is a lot taller than me,” Clover said, her hands now
on her hips as she smirked and blinked her very hazel eyes at Sage.
She grabbed Sage by his arm. “Come on,” she said, tugging at him,
her wings flapping harder than usual as he resisted. “Remember?
You said you didn’t want to miss the archery competition.”

Sage waved good-bye to Kristina, just before being whisked away
by the feisty, red-haired fairy.
