Night's End by Yasmine Galenorn Blog Tour - Excerpt and More! - June 29, 2014

Night's End, the final novel in the Indigo Court series by Yasmine Galenorn, will be published on July 1, 2014. Today The Qwillery has an excerpt  of Night's End for you and a giveaway of Night Myst (Indigo Court 1) and a Tour-wide Grand Prize contest!

Night's End Excerpt:

As I glanced down at the ground, the blood channeled across the snow in a delicate wash of rose that spread over the blanket of white. Whether the blood belonged to Check, Fearless, or the Shadow Hunters, I didn’t know, but if I didn’t act, my guards would be dead. Or worse. Myst could offer worse fates than merely being killed by her people.

“Gale Force.” I whispered the words, but the slipstream caught them up and sent them spinning into the air, and they took the form of a vortex.

A breeze wakened, starting lightly, but as I focused it through my body, the gusts increased. They were strong beyond the winds of my Winter realm. They bled directly from the heart of the plane of Air, a boreal wind sweeping down to buoy me up, to fill me full with a delicious sense of power. I rose to my tiptoes, balancing precariously on the branch.

As I raised my arms, no longer needing the support of the tree trunk, the winds lifted me into the air and spun me aloft, carrying me at the helm of a bank of mist and whirling snow. A second whisper of “Gale Force,” and the winds roared into a storm, hurricane strength, only instead of driving rain along the front, in its fury it picked up the snow and used it as a weapon.

Sleet and snow pelted against the Shadow Hunters, blinding the Vampiric Fae as they struggled against the biting wind.

Eons ago, vampires tried to turn the dark Fae in order to harness their magic, only to create a demonic enemy more powerful than they could have imagined. Now, in a final push, Myst returns with a vengeance to bring the Golden Wood forever under the rule of the Indigo Court.

Newly crowned Fae Queens Cicely and Rhiannon have embraced their destinies and claimed their thrones. But Myst is rising once more, and now, at the helm of her armies, she begins her final assault on the Golden Wood. As Fae, vampires, and magic-born alike fall under the tide of blood, Cicely and her friends must discover a way to destroy the spidery queen before they—and their people—face total annihilation.

  1. I was reading Yasmine's Sister's of the Moon series & enjoying them, but I got sidetracked waiting for the next one to come out & am no longer caught up with reading her books. That this is the last of *this* series - and I haven't yet begun it - tells me I've been a very bad reader! :p

  2. I love this series and am both excited and sad to see it ending. The characters and story have been fantastic and I am eager to see what will happen.

  3. I'm just starting this author so it's sad to hear that the series is ending. Thanks for sharing!

  4. haven't read this series before

  5. Awesome series! Thanks for the giveaways.
