Golden Healer, Dark Enchantress Blog Tour - Book Excerpt and Giveaway!

It's here! Welcome to my stop of the Golden Healer, Dark Enchantress Blog Tour! This blog tour is organized by The Bookish Snob Promotions and the author Christine E. Schulze. I am so happy to be the first stop and you will see book excerpt and some information about the author Christine E. Schulze and a giveaway!

I am reading Golden Healer, Dark Enchantress at the moment and my review will be up in couple of days. I am totally hooked, so It's definitely a book I would recommend you to read! Elf, vampires... you have it all if you like fantasy books!

Summary from Goodreads:

He leaned his head close to my ear and whispered, "Are you afraid?"

Chrystine had had more reason than any other time of her life, even when facing one of the rampages of her drunken father. But she wasn't afraid. And that was odd, because although Aaryn, the person asking her that question, was her best friend, he was also a vampire. In fact, she was surrounded by hundreds of vampires.

But they weren't your typical vampires. They were Stregoni Benefici, the good kind. Nor was Chrystine your typical elf. She was the Golden Healer, and she alone could save the Stregoni Benefici from the Dark Enchantress. But can Chrystine figure out the Dark Enchantress' secret and defeat the evil vampires without destroying the good ones as well, without destroying Aaryn? Can Chrystine unravel the dark secret Aaryn keeps so carefully guarded and show him that by choosing to serve good instead of evil, he is still capable of being loved and his past is forgiven?

Find out as you read for yourself the story of the first vampire.

Book Excerpt:
Golden Healer, Dark Enchantress: Excerpt I, the Prologue

He leaned his head close to my ear and whispered, "Are you afraid?"

His piercing green eyes carefully watched as I gazed around the vast expanse of the cavern. The orange glow of the bonfire glistened off the beautiful faces of those gathered here. Perhaps I should be afraid, being surrounded by hundreds of them, yet this place didn't feel dangerous at all. In fact, it felt less dangerous than home.

These people were here to grant protection. None of them had harmed me, and I knew none would.

Besides, Aaryn sat right beside me. His strong, encompassing arms offered protection, while their cool touch soothed. Perhaps I should be afraid of him as well, and yet, he never gave me any reason to fear him. I knew his love was true and he would never allow any of them--including himself--to harm me.

Most of all, I knew God called me here for a purpose and that while I was still fulfilling that purpose, while I was following His will, I could not be harmed. I could not fear then, being protected by hundreds of powerful, magical, beautiful beings.

Especially, I felt peace because God was with me and I would never be forsaken. He would give me the strength to do the incredible task that lay ahead.

"No," I said softly as I laid my head on his shoulder. "I'm not afraid."

He hugged me a little closer and kissed me softly on the forehead. A little thrill rippled through me, down to the deepest crevices of my heart. Content, I thanked God silently for his and Aaryn's love before drifting into a peaceful sleep.
