Door in the Garden of Shadows by April Canavan - Book Tour + Giveaway


Meet the Author:

April spends her time wandering through the woods chasing after a precocious child, trying to keep the voices of her characters in check as they tell their stories. Sometimes, though, those characters need to be heard. That’s when you can find April curled up into a ball surrounded by snacks and playlists with her favorite music, fleshing out the stories in her mind’s eye. She is a member of the Maine Romance Writers. You can find her on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.




About the Book:

***The Destruction of Magic is an ongoing series of standalone stories featuring different supernatural families***

There are rules that every supernatural faction lives by. The fae are no exception. Light and Dark, good and evil. Every choice has a consequence, and magic always comes with a price.

Mykah has lived her life for her people, giving everything that she possibly could…until she couldn’t handle anymore. Five years have passed since the beginning of the end, and she was expected to sacrifice herself to right a wrong. Instead, she ran. She ran away from her home, the people she loved, and the life she dreamt of living. Now she finds herself facing not only her past but a future that’s impossible for her to grasp.

To a vampire like Tyler, honor means everything. He has given his life to the throne and will do so until the unlikely day that he dies. His life has never been disrupted, until the day a pint-sized woman calls him a marshmallow only to disappear before he can figure out why she entices him.

Finding herself means more than discovering love, grasping happiness, or anything else that has come before in Mykah’s life. It means being able to choose which path her life will take. Knowing what her future holds, can she choose to walk away from the only man who makes her hesitate?

Excerpt

“Your mortality does not define who you are. It does not erase the good that you’ve done, the people that you’ve helped. It just makes the fact that you’ve done so many good things what is precious about you. You have given everything to help others, and it will pay off. You shouldn’t be punished now because you want to be selfish. Your entire life has been dedicated to our people, this curse will be lifted.” The look of determination in her sister’s eyes almost made her cry. “Have faith little sister.” Jessica grabbed her hands and squeezed them, forcing Mykah to look at her, “I love you, more than anything. We will find a way to lift the curse.”

“I don’t care if it is lifted, Jess. I just want to live. If I’m not going to have any power, then that is what’s meant to be. I just can’t live my life half in and half out. It’s either in the magical world or in the human realm.” If her life were in the human world, then she would need to start taking care of herself as a human and eliminate the reliance on her sister’s magic.

“Come back with me. Just for a little while.” She could practically see the wheels in her sister’s mind spinning as she spoke. “We can ask Winter for access to her tomes. She’ll want to pay her respects to my becoming queen regardless. I can ask it as a favor. She doesn’t need to know the details about the curse at all, we will call it idle curiosity. You’ve spent too much time in the human realm as it is, and I think it’s starting to change you.” Jessica stopped caressing her hair and moved Mykah into her arms. A remarkable feat, considering she was heavier than Jessica. Yet, her sister held her like she was an infant; rocking back and forth like she was afraid to let go. As she thought about what was being asked of her, she had to admit that she didn’t want her older sister to ever let go.

Mykah missed being home, she missed the way the gardens would bloom with her mood, and how the springs would bubble when she walked by. It was her home, and if it weren’t for the curse, she would be there now. Anger and heartbreak filled her veins at the thought that someone had taken her comfort and replaced it with fear. If a human spent time in the fae land, they could never leave. If she were at home when she turned entirely human, she would never be able to return to the human realm. She would be trapped like so many mortals that the ancient ones had kidnapped and brought to the court for amusement, only to abandon them in the human realm to turn to dust after their fun had faded. She would be trapped forever, an onlooker in a court that she should preside over at her sister’s right hand. Humans could not hold a position of power contained within the fae realm. They had no control over nature, they were just there, taking up space. She would become a joke to her people, trapped forever. That is all that would become of the once mighty fae princess.
