I will be giving away your choice of the Kalieri Tales by Susan Stuckey to three winners. 


Kaserie, a slave girl possessing potential magical powers, is held by the ruthless and brutal Halurdow, who intend to corrupt her talent for their own use. She escapes and flees to the Temple of the Twin Gods where she must not only confront her formidable enemies, but also her own father. A Kalieri Tales Novelette


 Elderly and frail, Jezrei is tasked with the safety of more than twenty children when the City of Azraelis is attacked by an enemy bent on slaughter and subjugation. How can one old man hope to stand against an entire army?


Ranger Thaenad, aided by a group of Black Wolves, rescues a group of women and children from certain death at the hands of the butchering worshippers of the Dark God. As he guides them toward safety, a traitor within their group exposes his every move to pursuing enemy forces. Are Thaenad’s skills and magic capable of neutralizing the traitor and overcoming the enemy?


The Halurdow conquer everything in their path, destroying and crushing the Kalieri wherever they find them. After conquering the Isle of Ipsen Watch, they’re stopped by a magic shield protecting the Ipsen mainland. The key to this shield is the only survivor of the Halurdow attack on Ipsen Watch: an old woman. A young shaman sits with the woman night and day, working to get the secret of the magic shield from her. Today, she will succeed.

Check out the rest of the stops for more holiday surprises. 


  1. Wow. This sounds like an intriguing book and a better blog hop. I wish I had known about it. My favorite series that you might like is the Mercy Thompson series. Her full first name is Mercedes — ironically, she works on Volkswagon cars. She is the last Native American coyote shifter in a world where the supernaturals live among unsuspecting mortals. Try MOON-CALLED. I think you will like it.

    • Hope you entered for a chance at the books. Forgot to tell us your favorite Christmas movie. 🙂 I love Christmas Story but the oldies must take precedence. Holiday Inn and The Bishop’s wife.

      • I will let others win the books. My favorite Christmas movie? Die Hard. No, just kidding. I am sucker for the first HOME ALONE movie. 🙂

  4. Me too. What a perfect Santa. My two favorite scenes: when he sings to the little Dutch girl and the very end with the cane in the corner. Thanks for stopping in.

  5. BookLady

    Gremlins is a fun holiday movie.
