Book Blitz, Excerpt, & Giveaway: Broken Aro by Jen Wylie!

by Jen Wylie 
Date: 09/04/12

from Goodreads:

Open your eyes to darkness. What do you
see? Does the darkness frighten you? Now imagine the darkness being the cargo
hold of a slave ship. Your city has fallen. Your family is most likely dead. You
don't know anyone around you, and some of them aren't even human. Giving up
would be so easy to do, but not for Arowyn Mason. Not after being raised in a
military family with seven brothers. Every great story should begin with a
plan. Aro's was to escape and to survive.

Escape comes, but at a price. As they reach the shore, Aro and the other
survivors learn that freedom doesn't mean safety. The slavers want their
property back and will do anything to get it. The party uses every ounce of
their brute strength, a hearty helping of cunning, and even ancient magics to
keep themselves alive. Sickness, danger, and even love surprise them at every
turn. Dealing with danger becomes their way of life, but none of them ever
considered that nothing can be quite as dangerous as a prophecy. Running turns
into another race altogether as her world falls to pieces again and again.


"Do you believe in magic, Aro?"

"What?" His sudden question startled her. "Well, I guess." She paused, thinking. "They say the eastern lands are full of all manner of beings that aren't human. Some are...something more. Like you. Is what you do magic?"

"Sort of. You could say part of me is magic. The Were use it more, changing forms. The Elves have their powers."

She interrupted him warily, "Are you going to do something strange again?"

He was silent for a very long time. "We Fey have a special magic. A magic of the heart and soul. A magic of…binding…of promise and intent. Do you understand?"

"No idea at all," she admitted.

"I want you to know how serious I am about protecting you, and I want you to know it's not just because of your father. I like you, Aro. I want us to be friends."

"I sort of thought we were heading that way already."

"But I can make it binding. Forever. Forever friends. No matter what."

She considered about what he said, who'd he suddenly become to her. He was her brother, her father had believed in him, but still...she hesitated. "Would it hurt?"

"Of course not," he said incredulously. "It's words and a little magic. That's all."

"Sure," she said impulsively. "What are the words?"

Her answer seemed to have surprised him. He took a moment before answering. "In friendship I shall bind my heart and soul to yours. Forever beside you I shall stand. Together or apart always will I be with you. Eternal friends we shall ever be."

  1. I love the sound of this book, and the cover is stunningly gorgeous. I'd love to be able to get a review copy but I'm not sure if I'd qualify for all of the terms since my book reviews are put on your blog and not my own.
