The Haunted Realm Book Launch!

The Haunted Realm Book Summary:

Book 2 in the Obsidian Series
A Young Adult Dystopian Epic Fantasy Book
By Emilyann Girdner 

The Haunted Realm is the thrilling sequel to Young Adult Fantasy novel The Labyrinth Wall (Tweeted by Sean Astin from Lord of the Rings, Dante Rossetti Award Finalist, 5 Star Reader's Favorite Rated and Amazon Best-Seller).

In this riveting continuation of the story, Araina again faces a series of seemingly impossible magical obstacles. As Araina and her friends search for answers about their Creators and their magical labyrinth world, their journey becomes rife with peril when Araina falls victim to illness. Despite heart-pricking losses in the labyrinth swamps, vengeful ghostly attackers in the Blinking Willows, and many other dangerous obstacles, Araina is determined to succeed. If Araina can’t solve the mysteries of the haunted realm and find a cure for her sickness, she and her friends may never escape the labyrinth, or even live to try.

The Haunted Realm Excerpt:

“You’re robbers and murderers. You steal from the Creators and the rest of us, taking from those who have little.”

Another hand lands on me, dragging me along despite my attempts to refuse. Pressure shoots through my legs as my heels dig into the ground; but my delays are useless.

“Those who have little? You’re seriously confused, aren’t you? The Creators have plenty. And I may have stolen once or twice in my life. Well, more times than that, but only for survival reasons.”
Now it feels like we’re walking across the boards of a dock. My ears are met with the sounds of soft splashes displacing the water, and crickets conversing. Where are we headed?

“Let me go!” I kick at Zem. I hit some part of her, but her grip doesn’t falter.

“We’re almost there,” she says as she and another person pull me along.

“I never did anything to you.”

There are more voices around us now. A gasp sounds nearby.

“You found that girl,” someone says.

“Did she try to rob you?” another woman asks.

“Quiet now, ladies,” an authoritative feminine voice chimes. “Zem, this is an unexpected treat. You’ll be rewarded well for bringing this snake to me.”

“It’s my duty to help maintain justice by turning in liars and killers, Narrah. Just doing my part,” Zem tells the woman.

Fingernails scrape my cheek before the cloth meant to conceal my eyes is yanked below my chin, leaving me face-to-face with a Creator, and once again the bane of my existence has the upper hand.
