Young Adult Giveaway Hop



For this hop, I am celebrating an author who has just made the move from his day job to being a full-time author.  Very excited for him.  Really, I'm being very selfish about this.  Him writing full-time means MORE books for me of his! So YAY!!!!

M. R. Merrick is now a full-time author!!!


Congrats Matt!

And write more books for me to read, please.

M.R. Merrick | Goodreads | Twitter | FB | Amazon

Currently, he has the first two books in the protector series out and is working on book 3.

Add to Goodreads
Chase Williams is a demon hunter in the Circle, or at least he was supposed to be. On his fifteenth birthday, Chase stepped up to the altar to claim his elemental power, but it never came. Elemental magic is passed down to a hunter through the bloodline, but on Chase's birthday, the bloodline stopped.

Exiled without the Circle's protection, Chase has spent two years trying to survive a world riddled with half-demons and magic. When he has a run in with a frightened and seemingly innocent demon, he learns the Circle's agenda has changed: the Circle plans to unlock a portal and unleash pure-blood demons into the world. Vowing to stop them, and knowing he can't do it alone, Chase forms a reluctant alliance with Rayna — a sexy witch with an attitude and a secret.

In their attempt to stop them, Chase and Rayna find themselves in the middle of the Circle's plan, leaving one of them to decide what their friendship is worth, and the other's life depending on it.




Devastated by a terrible loss, Chase is trying to balance the life he’s been left with, a family he’s still getting to know, and power he never thought he’d have. He doesn’t understand why the Goddess has named him the Protector and granted him two gifts: the Mark, a tattoo that now covers his back, and the ring. But between getting interrogated by the Circle and psychic attacks from Riley, the Mark is the least of his concern. There’s a demon inside Rayna that’s fighting to be released, and it’s not her inner witch. It’s something else—a monster threatening to tear her apart.

As Chase struggles to control his magic, his enemies are closing in. Everyone has staked a claim on his ring, and destroying it may be his only chance to stop Riley. But Chase must decide if stopping him is worth risking the lives of everyone he cares about, or if protecting the ring will be enough to save his world.
These books are YA Urban Fantasy.
They are action packed and include some incredibly imaginative creatures.





So, I'm gonna give away BOTH books in the protector series, your choice of format (Kindle or paperback), to celebrate this fabulous news!

    Congratulations to Matt on the move to full-time authorhood!! I'm sure that is an amazing feeling! But a great choice, based on what all the many, many reviewers of his books are saying :) I will confess to having "Exiled" in ebook format but I want "Shift" soooo badly! Plus I'd love to have both books in paperback. So THANKS for this giveaway, it's perfect!

  54. Well thats easy... my fave creature and the one that got me interested in Fantasy is of course DRAGONS!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I honestly don't have a favorite. I love them all, except one. So instead of naming EVERY creature that I love, I will name the ONE that I just don't. Mermaids. I have had no luck with any of the mermaid or syren books that I have read. I just picked up Wake by Amanda Hocking at the library on a recommendation from a friend. We will see if that one can turn things around for me. Thanks for the chance to win!
