Did I Notice Your Book Blogfest

Hosted by Alex J. Cavanaugh and Ciara Knight.

I actually noticed this book the other day on Ciara’s site and thought the cover was gorgeous.

Wish The Awakening

a YA dark fantasy

by Laura Eno

Most residents of Pine Hill shy away from seventeen-year-old Lelah without knowing why. It’s the Djinn magic surging through her blood. She lives in a world where wishes are really curses, dark power meant to twist and deceive in unimaginable ways.

When a fit of temper exposes Lelah for what she really is, she must flee to a sanctuary only whispered about, before her family is exposed and enslaved by their ancient enemy. What she discovers is a treacherous path filled with power, lies, and betrayal – a path that’s destined to ensnare her and destroy a civilization.

Laura, I look forward to reading your book!

  10. Oh, this sounds fabulous! I love Djinn and the 'be careful what you wish for' theme. And I've been meaning to read one of Laura's books, too, so this sounds like the one that I will dive in for.

  11. It is indeed a beautiful cover.

    I wish more self-published authors would give more attention to the selling point of a well designed book cover.
