{Blog Tour} Laney McMann’s TORN!

Welcome to my post to support the release of Laney McMann’s TORN, the second in the Fire Born trilogy.

Please note: This is a young adult title. If you love fantasy or paranormal romance, then you’ll love this one, too.

Take a look, but stick around afterwards, because we also have a guest post from Ms McMann AND a giveaway!

Find Max.

 That’s all Layla cares about. Not healing from the Fomore attack. Not finding answers to how she survived a fall that nearly killed her. Nothing will stop her. She will find him. She’ll even pair up with an overbearing Fallen Angel who’s hell bent on making everything harder than it needs to be if she has to.

 Protect Layla.

 For Max, nothing else matters. Not the bruises covering his body. Not the pain radiating from his broken bones. Not even his hands tied behind his back. He will find a way to save Layla, and the Fomore will pay if they’ve hurt her. 

 Every. Single. One of them.

 In the second installment of The Fire Born trilogy, a new breed of villain looms—one Layla and Max will never suspect, and this killer has nothing to lose. Better yet, with Max and Layla’s deaths, victory is in the grip of the enemy.

 Will Max and Layla find each other in time, or is it already too late for them both?

You can add it to your Goodreads HERE!

And you can find out where to grab yourself a copy HERE!

And here’s where I hand over the reins to the author herself with a Tens List I challenged her to write.

Hi Julie,

 

10 things you (the reader) might not know about gargoyles.

 

I have always been fascinated by all things history, especially when that history is stemmed by legends and myths. Gargoyles fall nicely into this category.

 

  1. You may or may not know that gargoyles are/were used for an actual function atop buildings. Their mouths are drain spouts to divert water from rooftops.

 

  1. Gargoyles, although thought of to have grotesque and monstrous faces, actually come in all shapes and sizes, from lion heads to depictions of monks.

 

  1. In ancient times, some believed that gargoyles came alive at night in order to protect towns and their people.

 

  1. Some churches are believed to use gargoyles to ward off evil spirits.

 

  1. Many civilizations used gargoyles as visual cues, their ornate and gruesome statures making clear statements to those who were illiterate.

 

  1. Gargoyles adorn some of the most beautiful buildings in the world, including the most famous, Notre Dame de Paris.

 

  1. It is widely believed that the first gargoyles came into existence around 600 AD.

 

  1. The word, ‘gargoyle’ means throat, coming from the late Latin word, gurgula.

 

  1. In Medieval folklore, ‘gargoyle’ derived from a fire breathing dragon who lived near the River Seine in Paris. The French called the monster, La Gargouille.

 

  1. I personally find gargoyles to be beautifully mysterious. 😉

Yeah, I’m not convinced #3 is that enticing, LOL.

Normal people don’t believe their nightmares stalk them. They don’t fall in love with boys who don’t exist, either.

Seventeen-year-old Layla Labelle, though, is far from normal. Her delusions walk the earth. Her hallucinations hunt her, and her skin heats to a burn every time her anger flares.

Or is that all in her head?

Layla doesn’t know what to believe any more because if none of that’s true, Max MacLarnon must be an illusion, and her heart must still be broken.

No matter how much she wants to believe Max is real, doing so would mean everything else is, too. How, then, is that possible?

The answers lie in an age-old legend the supernatural aren’t prepared to reveal, and with a curse that could tear Layla and Max apart forever—if it doesn’t kill them both first.

In TIED, book one in the Fire Born trilogy, learning the truth will mean fighting an arsenal of demons, and being with Max will put Layla on a path toward her own destruction.

Just how far will Layla go to protect the one she loves?

The answer may never be far enough … away.
