YA Urban Fantasy E-book Giveaway!

Here's a description of the book:

"Iris Kohl lives in a world populated by murky shadows that surround, harass, and entice unsuspecting individuals toward evil. But she is the only one who can see them. She’s had this ability to see the shadows, as well as brilliantly glowing light figures, ever since an obscure, tragic incident on her fourteenth birthday three years earlier.

Although she’s learned to cope, the view of her world begins to shift upon the arrival of three mysterious characters. First, a handsome new teacher whose presence scares away shadows; second, a new friend with an awe-inspiring aura; and third, a mysterious and alluring new student whom Iris has a hard time resisting despite already having a boyfriend.

As the shadows invade and terrorize her own life and family, she must ultimately revisit the most horrific event of her life in order to learn her true identity and become the hero she was meant to be."

About the Author

"Dusty Crabtree has been a high school English teacher at Yukon High School in Oklahoma since 2006, a challenge she thoroughly enjoys. She is also a youth sponsor at Cherokee Hills Christian Church in Oklahoma City and feels very blessed with the amazing opportunities she has to develop meaningful relationships with teens on a daily basis. Her passion for teens has poured into her writing as well. She is the author of the young adult urban fantasy, Shadow Eyes, through Musa Publishing, which she wrote in order to give teens an intriguing and provocative book series that promotes moral messages. She lives with her husband, Clayton, in Yukon, Oklahoma, where they often serve their community as foster parents."

Dusty's Note Regarding Her Writing

“I wanted to offer young adult books intriguing enough for teens from many walks of life to want to read, yet reflecting a Christian worldview about topics like purity, drinking, depression/anxiety, and hope. My desire is to write books that explore broken ways of living, yet show them in a different light. Instead of avoiding brokenness (which is fine for a strictly Christian audience) or making it seem acceptable (like many secular books do), I wanted to show harmful behavior for what it truly is – evil. I hope that as readers go through experiences with Iris, they will begin to see the nature of evil differently and also come to realize they, too, are never without hope and have the ability to rise above their pasts.”


If this post looks familiar, that's probably because I shared about this author and her book on The Borrowed Book a couple of weeks ago. But lucky for one of you, the winner of Shadow Eyes never responded (this was before our recent change from all followers being entered into our giveaways to just the people who comment on the day of the puzzle/giveaway). So, here's how you can enter for a chance to win this e-book:

I am not sure if this is considered a young adult book but I read it as a young adult and I loved it. The book is called Tuesday's with Morrie!
