Book Blurb #35: Warrior
Welcome again to Book Blurb Friday. If you’re a newbie, here’s the scoop so you understand what follows. Please click HERE or click the tab under the blog header for details of the Book Blurb Friday meme. This is the shortened, abridged version:
Write a book jacket blurb (150 words or less) so enticing that potential readers would feel compelled to buy the book.
Below is this week’s “book cover,” generously offered for our creative blurbs by Ashley Ortiz. My blurb follows.
Sister Gabrielle keeps a watchful eye on the teenage girls in her care. She knows the kind of life awaiting them outside the gates of the orphanage and refuses to lose them to the mean streets she escaped.When three of the girls go missing, the police write them off as runaways. But Sister Gabrielle disagrees, and when she finds in their room a silk bag containing frankincense and myrrh, her blood runs cold. It means the Magus has found her and the girls are his bait.
Gabrielle’s chosen name means Warrior of God, and she vows to live up to it—with a fierce and fiery vengeance.
Shedding her nun’s habit Gabrielle returns to the seamy underworld of her past. But this time she is armed with more than just her wits, and she will stop at nothing to bring the girls to safety and see the Magus destroyed.
Thanks for a great photo, Ashley!
Have a great weekend! See you next for Monday’s microfiction.
