This or That
Movies. I love long, intricate story lines but can’t commit to a TV series (or the interrupting commercials).
Hot! I don’t like to be cold.
Night owl. Sleep is for the weak. And alert.
eBook. I love the idea of thousands of books sitting in the palm of my hand.
Regular. Aspartame is scary stuff.
Eh, neither. I’m an iced tea sort of girl.
…Horomance? I like a blend of both.
Oh that’s not fair. I can’t choose between carbs.
Summer! I might not look great in shorts, but I can’t stand the snow. Brrrrrr.
Harry Potter. Wizards do it better.
Planning ahead. I’m a list-freak and have a color coded planner.
Shoes or Sandals?
Shoes. You know, for all that running I never do.
Cats. All the dogs I’ve ever had can’t just be petted…it has to be an event that involves head butting and rubbing their noses everywhere.
Oranges are delicious…fun tip: when frozen, oranges make great ice cubes for water.
Twitter. I’m an addict. It’s so much fun to connect with people in an instant medium like that.
Dare! I can take it.
Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things–Ourea.
Kara, a college student still reeling from her mother’s recent death, has no idea the hidden world of Ourea even exists until a freak storm traps her in a sunken library. With no way out, she opens an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire and unwittingly becomes its master, which means Kara now wields the cursed book’s untamed power. Discovered by Ourea’s royalty, she becomes an unwilling pawn in a generations-old conflict–a war intensified by her arrival. In this world of chilling creatures and betrayal, Kara shouldn’t trust anyone… but she’s being hunted and can’t survive on her own. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn’t know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.
For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this human girl, there is something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.
Welcome to Ourea, where only the cunning survive.
Praise for Lichgates
Wow, the world building on this one was breathtaking. The world of Ourea is just full of so many things. Surprises are around every corner. ~Alexia P.
From the first few pages into this story, it was obvious that Boyce has a way with words. ~Author Becca Campbell
