SCAVENGER HUNT POST

For my post in the YA Scavenger Hunt, I'm honored to be hosting Hilary Thompson, author of the SoulShifter series:

Hilary used to be such a practical girl. Then she let the stories out.

Now she creates worlds, people, and problems that are grounded in real life, if you accept that real life has magic around every turn.

She also teaches Writing and English, writes whenever and wherever she can, and reads as much as her eyes can handle. She plays superheroes and dress up games and reads books in bed with her children, and plays at homesteading and world traveling with her husband.


For the hunt, Hilary is giving away Book 1: Shift of Shadow and Soul 

There are three kinds of magic in the world, and Corentine has the wrong one. 

Long ago, the Restless King forced Corentine's people into hiding as he scoured their blood for the SoulShifter. When Corentine learns she possesses some of the forbidden Shifter magic, she must hide her power or risk the same death her twin suffered. 

Raised to trust no one, she rejects the General's son Sy, until she realizes his family secrets might be the key to unlocking hers. When his brother turns against them, they are forced to fight family to save what's left of their home, or accept banishment to find a new future.

If Coren and Sy can't convince their people to accept the light of Shifter magic, the growing Shadow will ruin everyone's chance of freedom.

When dark meets light, will all become Shadow?

  30. The cover looks really great! Very mystical and the colors were well chosen! :D But, one thing that would make the cover even better is the stance of the guy on the cover being changed by having him stand up straight so that he looks more powerful and the wings being a bit more bigger. All in all, the cover looks great!
