When Gwen contacted me sometime ago and offered to include me in her blog blitz, I was thrilled and today I get to introduce you all to her and share excerpt from her new novel “the jealousy glass”. Gwen has also graciously provided me a copy to review which I am currently in my free time [with the holiday season and a bit back logged on reading]. Please take a moment to check out Gwen’s info and links and extend her the warm welcome I know my followers her always give.
The Jealousy Glass
“We came to stop a war before it came to Cercia. And it seems the war has come to us.”
Responsibility and patriotism spur Cercia’s new leader, Quentin, to protect his beloved country at all costs and he assigns Asahel and Felix to serve as ambassadors and secret agents to Anjdur. Their journey quickly turns awry and Asahel and Felix barely escape a devastating shipwreck, walk a tightrope of political tension, and rescue an empress before they learn they must face an enemy closer to them than they thought.
Will they be able to uncover an assassin’s plot before it’s too late? Will Asahel be able to unearth a secret that is vital to their mission? Will Cercia survive its own revolution? In The Jealousy Glass, Perkins boldly continues a series of unforgettable characters and events that will leave you begging for more.
