I am excited to be part of a blog tour for author Jan Sikes and her latest release, Jagged Feathers, Book 2 of the White Rune Series. Since you know of my fascination with runes, you can see why this book has caught my interest. I´ll let Jan tell you more about the book. She will also share a couple of excerpts.

Thank you, Darlene, for inviting me to your blog site today to talk about my new book, JAGGED FEATHERS! I appreciate your generosity.

Jagged Feathers is Book 2 in The White Rune Series. The one commonality each book has is a single white rune that gets passed from book to book. Rena Jett from Ghostly Interference (Book 1) gave the rune to Vann Noble on her wedding day. The Wunjo symbol on the rune portends a happily-ever-after. Vann keeps the stone because he promised Rena he would, but he really doesn’t believe a happy ending exists for one as broken as he. How could a stone possess any kind of magic?

EXCERPT:

Vann cleared his throat, a sudden tightness in his chest. “Sam would like that. He would have made a great uncle.”

“Since Sam isn’t here, I guess you’ll have to be the fill-in uncle.” Rena turned to Nakina. “Sam died in Afghanistan. Vann came all the way to Texas to bring my brother’s final letter. Inside, with the letter, I found a white rune that worked some magic for me and Jag.” She faced Vann. “Do you still have it?”

Nakina asked, “Is it the one on the dresser?”

Vann nodded. “For some crazy reason, when Rena and Jag got married, she decided I needed it.”

“And you do.” Rena leaned forward. “The Wunjo symbol on the rune signifies a happily-ever-after, and if anyone on earth deserves that, it’s this man.”

“Oh hell!” Vann squirmed. “It’s just a rock.”

“A magic rock.” Rena took a long drink from her water.

EXCERPT #2:

Nakina’s gaze lingered on the rune. She considered putting it into her pocket but stopped. This wasn’t for her happily-ever-after. It was Vann’s.

After another hesitation, she reached for it and walked into the kitchen.

“Here. Hold out your hand.” She dropped the rune into Vann’s palm. “You need to carry this with you. It helps create a stronger magic.”

“I wish I believed that, but I don’t think magic works for a guy like me.” However, he shoved it into his pocket.

“Magic especially works for a guy with a heart as big as yours.”

If you follow my blog, you know I did an entire series on runes and their meanings last year. I love all things metaphysical and that includes these symbols that have survived for centuries. I see them as tools to help navigate the waters of life. Have you had any experience with runes, or ever had a rune reading?

BLURB:

Vann Noble did his duty. He served his country and returned a shell of a man, wounded inside and out. With a missing limb and battling PTSD, he seeks healing in an isolated cabin outside a small Texas town with a stray dog that sees beyond his master’s scars. If only the white rune’s magic can bring a happily ever after to a man as broken as Vann.

On the run from hired killers and struggling to make sense of her unexplained deadly mission, Nakina Bird seeks refuge in Vann’s cabin. She has secrets. Secrets that can get them all killed.

A ticking clock and long odds of living or dying, create jarring risks.

Will these two not only survive, but find an unexpected love along the way? Or, will evil forces win and destroy them both?
