Odessa: The Seraphym Wars - Teaser & Giveaway!

For you today, I have a teaser from Rebecca Ryals Russell's upcoming book, Odessa: The Seraphym Wars. A little bit steampunk, a lot fantasy, I'm about half way through reading this and can't wait to share my review with you! In the meantime though, let me give you a taste of what to expect if you choose this book for your TBR pile.

"Trembling, I stepped forward and thrust the sword into her chest where I hoped the heart was. I couldn't imagine how a simple shard of metal could destroy a demon, but I watched in fascinated horror as it swelled and changed.

The screeching wail that ensued did not issue from a twelve-year-old's throat. It climbed in timbre until the roar was a train running through the bathroom, echoing off the shiny, wet tiles. The demon, no longer able to hold the image of a child, displayed his usual golden scaly skin and horned head with a large toothy maw. Claws with long nails scraped at the tiles, shredding them to dust as he thrashed madly, trying to pull the glowing sword from his chest." - Odessa: The Seraphym Wars, pg. 48

I'm hoping that this little taste will peak your interest! Trust me when I say that if you are a fan of fantasy, this is a book that is going to suck you in. I stayed up WAY too late last night reading.

Myrna Ashlin Watts graduated from High School in Jacksonville, Fl just in time to find herself transported to a bizarre and primal planet corrupted by demon-dragons. And they want her DEAD. Her problem is she has been recruited to kill them, too.

18-year-old Myrna is drawn into the middle of an epic battle between Seraphym and Demons. An average High School student from Florida, struggling with inner demons resulting from a rape two years earlier, she wakes one morning on the Steampunk planet of Dracwald, home of the demon-dragons responsible for her brother’s recent murder as well as many other atrocities in the news. She meets Michael, who becomes her guide and explains that according to prophecy, Myrna must gather the remaining six Vigorios (teen warriors with special talents) then train with the Majikals on an enchanted island.

Reluctantly, and knowing it is her only way to get back home, she agrees to lead, battling dragons and monsters while crossing swamps and mountains, forests and seas. She wrangles with the old inner demons when three very different men join her quest—a seasoned demon/dragon-slayer who irritates but beguiles her, a tender and sweet mentor in whom she trusts completely and a roguishly handsome Scientist who sets her senses aflame. How is she expected to lead the others and keep everyone safe with so much inner turmoil?

Will love and lust, jealousy, greed, deceit and distrust break the delicate tie that binds these teen warriors called The Vigorios? Can a troupe of teens help the Seraphym finally defeat the massive empire of evil dominated for eons by the demon-dragons of Dracwald?
