Introducing a new type of post to the blog, the #SaturdayStarter. #SaturdayStarter features one story, specifically the beginning of the story. The beginning of the book will be shared along with the book blurb and where you can find the book in case the opening piqued your interest. So let’s kick off this new type of post with a fantastic book from DW Alder. Shelter From the Winter happens to be one of my favorite stories, and I’m thrilled to be able to share it with you.
Brijit was home. Even one thousand years could never dull the memories of her naïve Wicklow, the small Viking fishing village in Ireland. She smiled as the lucid dream took hold, turning in a full circle to take in everything around her while she stood just outside the town, gazing lovingly at its long rectangular homes with thatched roofs, the smoke from the ever-burning home-fires wafting into the bright sunlit sky. ~Shelter From the Winter by DW Adler
Book Blurb: After a thousand years on the run, is a little peace and quiet too much to ask?
Brijit McRaith has been on the run for centuries. Pursued by her mad creator for most of her years as a vampire, she has finally found peace and sanctuary in her native Ireland. But a modern world on the brink of war has caught up with her and after decades of quiet, Brijit finds herself on the run again. To add to her personal chaos, she becomes smitten with mortal Kelly O’Donnell, and Brijit and her initial plans to lay low fall by the wayside. With an uncertain future ahead of her, can Brijit protect her newfound love from a world bent on destroying itself?
Originally published as a three book series, Shelter From The Winter now appears in its intended form as a single book, newly edited and featuring exciting new rewrites that expand the story of Brijit.
