Barry Hoffman’s YA fantasy series THE SHAMRA CHRONICLES re-launches with a new website, a new installment and a whole new look. He’s offered a follower of this blog a 3 book set plus a writing journal.
About the author:
Barry Hoffman is a writer living in Colorado Springs. Barry Hoffman has also been a teacher, a publisher, and an editor. Hoffman’s eight adult books have been well received by critics. You can learn more about Barry Hoffman and The Shamra Chronicles online at www.shamrachronicles.com
In the first book, Curse of the Shamra, a girl named Dara’s peaceful and isolated land of the Shamra is invaded and its people enslaved, and she finds herself in the very unfamiliar role of leading a ragtag resistance to defeat the enemy. But even as she fights the invaders, Dara grapples with self-doubt and is criticized by her own people for being outspoken and different. Venturing into uncharted territory to seek allies, Dara encounters unusual creatures and dangerous lands and is forced to come to terms with the fact that she alone is the only hope the Shamra have to regain their freedom.
In Shamra Divided, the second book in the series, Dara has managed to save her people from one enemy but the cost has been high. While Dara struggles to come to terms with the loss of beloved friends, she finds herself thrust into the leadership role of an improbable army and learns that it is her destiny to unite her people as one, even as she faces her biggest challenge: Chaos. Dormant for almost two hundred years, Chaos has returned, intent on destroying Dara.
In Chaos Unleashed: Book Three of the Shamra Chronicles nothing is as it seems in a world where the living mingle with the dead and dreams can turn into frightening reality. Chaos is beginning to spread across the land. Together, with friends from past journeys and new allies who may not be what they seem, Dara must build an army to confront Chaos. But as she and her army prepare for the final battle, Dara realizes that the only person she can really count on is herself. Chaos Unleashed also includes an original bonus novella, SAFE HAVEN, following the adventures of Dara’s family.
To celebrate the series’ new look, the publication of the latest installment and the re-launch of Shamrachronicles.com, I have a collection of all three titles in the series and a Shamra journal and pen set to give away to one lucky winner.
