Hi all!  Today is my stop on the Eden’s Root blog tour.  Author Rachel Fisher is going to share a excerpt from her book & has a giveaway for you.  You can also follow the rest of the tour by clicking on the banner above.

About Eden’s Root:

The year is 2033 and the world hovers on the edge of explosion as unexplained crop deaths lead to severe global food shortages. In the United States, the Sickness is taking lives slowly, creeping its way into every family. Fi Kelly has already faced the Sickness in her own family, toughening her beyond her years. But a shocking confession from her dying father will push her toughness to its absolute limits. Saddled with an impossible secret and the mission of saving her little sister, Fi sets out to transform herself into the warrior that she must become to survive the coming collapse. Along the way, she will discover that evil can be accidental and that love can be intentional.  [Goodtreads]


Welcome to the Apocalypse.  Please enjoy…

“Cover your ears, baby,” Fi whispered to Kiara below her.  She crouched below the window ledge, peering out.  She tried to force herself to observe…to only see the scene as a source of information.   Her breath caught.  She was failing.

Cars blazed in the street, and the flickering glow on the horizon suggested that homes did as well.  Screams continued to fill the air, along with intermittent gunfire.  With each sound, Fi felt herself flinch a little less, as her brain grew weary of the adrenaline.

A group of men jogged past.  All wore the same black ammunition vests and they moved as a group.  The attackers.  They must be.  They were citizens, not soldiers, but they were heavily armed and they were ransacking the town.  Still, it was impossible to tell if they were the only attackers, because gunshots continued to come from all sides.

Suddenly one of them turned and headed for the garage.  Fi gasped and dropped to the floor.  She pressed her back against the door and crushed Kiara to her.  Did he see her?  What if he saw her?  The possible tragedies were endless.  Her heart raced as she struggled to maintain her grasp on her fear.  No one breathed as his footsteps drew near, and a flashlight panned over the inside of the garage.

    I don’t have a favourite book because I’m constantly picking up something new. This book seems really interesting, I’ve never heard of it before but it sounds like somehing I’d enjoy. Great giveaway 🙂

    There are so many books that I love; at present the top of my list is The Immortals of Meluha and Secrets of the Naga, two books from a series based on Shiva mythology.

    I have too many favorites to list. One of the most recent read is from the Rachel Morgan series by Kim Harrison, A Perfect Blood, it was great. I am really intrigued by Eden’s Root and looking forward to the read 🙂
