Book Blog Tour...

Philippa Ballantine, author of the newly released Geist,
first of A book of the Order series. 

I am thrilled to announce Philippa will do a guest post on Monday November 29th right here!  I think it's going to be a great post, so please make sure you mark your calendars to stop back by and say Hi.

If you would like to stop by Philippa's site and watch a great interview with her in which she talks on writing, writing fantasy, and Geist: CLICK HERE.  I think you will be sold on the books from this site, before you even start reading them.

I will be starting to read the book Geist this weekend and have a review posted of the book as well.  I am so looking forward to getting into this book, as it really sounds like a great fantasy read that is right up my alley.

Have you heard about Geist yet?  If not here is the cover and synopsis from Goodreads:
Between the living and the dead is the Order of the Deacons, protectors of the Empire, guardians against possession, sentinels enlisted to ward off the malevolent haunting of the geists... 

Among the most powerful of the Order is Sorcha, now thrust into partnership with the novice Deacon, Merrick Chambers. They have been dispatched to the isolated village of Ulrich to aide the Priory with a surge of violent geist activity. With them is Raed Rossin, Pretender to the throne that Sorcha is sworn to protect, and bearer of a terrible curse. 

But what greets them in the strange settlement is something far more predatory and more horrifying than any mere haunting. And as she uncovers a tradition of twisted rituals passed down through the dark reaches of history, Sorcha will be forced to reconsider everything she thinks she knows. 

And if she makes it out of Ulrich alive, what in Hell is she returning to?
