BOOK TOUR & GIVEAWAY - Ward Against Disaster by Melanie Card

Release Date: 01/19/14
Entangled Teen
276 pages

Summary from Goodreads:

Ward de'Ath should be dead by now. Instead, he’s chasing after a soul-eating creature—that he unleashed— and is bent on stopping her before she slaughters more innocents. Fortunately, Celia Carlyle remains by his side, a nobleman's gorgeous and deadly daughter, who is…well, dead.

Celia claims she’ll champion Ward wherever he goes, even when she thinks his quest is hopeless. He can only hope her pledge comes from her heart, and not because she’s bound to him through his magic.

When they enter Dulthyne, they stumble upon a dark power that threatens the entire town. Ward, with his unreliable necromancy, is determined to help but finds himself ensnared in the lure of white-hot magic…blood magic he struggles to resist. But if Celia’s love is a lie, it might just doom his soul to the dark arts forever.

Celia’s Theme Songs

 For Celia I’ve always known her theme song would change. Her character goals in the series are to learn to play well with others and understand that helping those in need is a strength not a weakness.

When I started writing Celia in Ward Against Death I always heard her theme song as Whatever Lola Wants performed by Sarah Vaughan.

But now, in Ward Against Disaster, her theme song is closer to  I Bet My Life by Imagine Dragons (which is a little funny since she’s already dead). I suspect it’ll remain the same for the fourth and final installment in the Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer series, but she could surprise me.

About the Author

I have always been drawn to story telling. In fact, I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t telling a story in my head or on paper. In grade school, we had journal writing time which I turned into story telling time, weaving tales of magic and adventure that mimicked the fairy tales and myths that I loved to read. It was there, with the help of two very special teachers, that I nurtured this love and started my journey as a writer.

I write fantasy, paranormal romance, and everything in between, seasoned with a good dash of adventure and mystery. Join me on my tales of magic, adventure, and romance.
