GIVEAWAY The Rock of Ivanore by Laurisa White Reyes #BOOKBLAST W!N $50 to Amazon!

The Rock of Ivanore
The annual Great Quest is about to be announced in Quendel, a task that will determine the future of Marcus and the other boys from the village who are coming of age. The wizard Zyll commands them to find the Rock of Ivanore, but he doesn't tell them what the Rock is exactly or where it can be found. Marcus must reach deep within himself to develop new powers of magic and find the strength to survive the wild lands and fierce enemies he encounters as he searches for the illusive Rock. If he succeeds, he will live a life of honor; if he fails, he will live a life of menial labor in shame. With more twists and turns than a labyrinth, and a story in which nothing is as it seems, this tale of deception and discovery keeps readers in suspense until the end.
Middle readers will find that The Rock of Ivanore fits nicely among the traditional fantasies they so enjoy. They will also appreciate its fresh and inventive take on the genre.
Praise:

"This is a swift and compelling epic that readers of high fantasy will love!"
— Tony Abbott, author of The Secrets of Droon


“Magic! Swords! Mysterious cloaked figures! A good choice for middle-grade fantasy lovers.”   
– Marissa Burt, author of Storybound


“Fast paced and very engaging.”
– So Simply Sara

“Elementary school libraries and middle school libraries can confidently add this book to their collections.”
– Cerulean Librarian

  2. Marianne -- If you are using IE, sometimes the link takes a minute to load. Try hitting the reload button on your browser bar. I would also try a different browser as sometimes the rafflecopter codes won't load on IE. I just checked on IE, Chrome and Firefox, they all work but just take time to load since it is a graphic heavy link.
