Darkness Falls Blog Tour Stop: Guest Post and Giveaway

Sorry this post is going up late. My account was hacked and was blocked off for 24 hours. I am finally getting the chance to post it now! Cheers! :)
Welcome to my stop on the Darkness Falls Blog Tour
About Wilde's Army
"Hello, Katriona." Those two words spark fear in Katriona Wilde and give way to an unlikely partnership with Perth, the man she's been traded to marry for a favor. Saving her true love and protector Arland, her family, and their soldiers keeps her motivated, but the at-odds duo soon realizes trust is something that comes and goes with each breath of Encardia's rotting, stagnant air. The moment when concern for her missing sister spirals out of control, all thoughts of trust are pushed aside and she finds herself trapped by the daemon tricks Perth warned her of. However, rescuing those she loves is only half the problem. Kate still must get to Willow Falls, unite her clashing people, and form an army prepared to fight in order to defeat Darkness. When so many she's grown fond of die along the journey, her ability to play by the gods' rules is tested. How will she make allies when the world appears stacked against her? And will she still be Katriona Wilde, the girl with fire?

Love and War
Many people might think being tossed into a new, dark, war-torn world would be miserable, but I'm here to tell you, life is what you make of it. No matter who you are or where you live.
Katriona had everything: College, a horse farm that would one day be hers, a good family, a best friend who was always there for her.

Nothing to complain about.

But somehow, stumbling into Encardia only made her realize what she didn't have, something she'd longed for in dreams, something most girls think about when they're playing with Barbies: love.

Times for her in this new world were frustrating. She's forced to adapt to life underground, without sunlight, without the comfort of friends or family. However, the longer she stayed in Encardia, the more she built a life of her own, the more she grew into the strong woman who yearned for release. Katriona fell in love with more than just the hero, she fell in love with his soldiers, with the women and children, with his family, and with the world itself.

It is, after all, her birthplace.

Still, the losses do take a toll on her, and when so many close to her perish in the final battle, Kate struggles with her identity, with who she is and wants to be in the end, and where she wants to live.

Wars and death have a way of changing people.

Krystal Wade can be found in the sluglines outside Washington D.C. every morning, Monday through Friday. With coffee in hand, iPod plugged in, and strangers–who sometimes snore, smell, or have incredibly bad gas–sitting next to her, she zones out and thinks of fantastical worlds for you and me to read. How else can she cope with a fifty mile commute?

Good thing she has her husband and three kids to go home to. They keep her sane.
Kismet and Krystal have generously set up giveaways for your entering pleasure! Enter after the page break, good luck!
