ALVOR by Laura Bingham with a signed copy for giveaway!

alvorThank you Laura for sending me not only this book, but a second one to give away.

I have to tell you readers…. this came in the mail on Friday and now… it calls me.  I have other books I am reading AND enjoying, but this cover, this book…. I want to drop everything and read it now.

“Adarae jolted as the feeling surged through her.  She looked carefully at not one, but two little faces, and felt the warm power within them.  No one suspected it would be two, but the strenght pulsing through them was undeniable.  They stared back into her eyes.”

ALVOR is a spellbinding blend of magic and mystery, enchantment and fairy tale, that asks the age old question:

Do you believe in magic?

FIFTEEN-YEAR-OLD Erin and her twin brother, Bain, had never seen the secluded cabin in the woods by their home.  Upon entering, they discovered a magical world haunted by pegasi, dragons, and fairies
