Blog Tour: Songlines

Songlines
by Carolyn Denman
Genre: Clean YA Fantasy
Release Date: August 20th 2016

Summary:
We belong to the Earth, Lainie-Bug. We were sent here in human form for a reason. If you don’t know what to do, then just be human.

Right. Like that was ever a simple thing to do.

In the heart of the Wimmera region of Australia, an ancient gateway is kept hidden and safe by a creature so powerful that even the moon would obey her commands – at least it would if she had any idea that she wasn’t just a normal girl about to finish high school.

When a mining company begins some exploratory sampling near Lainie’s sheep farm, a family secret is revealed that makes her regret not having learned more about her heritage.

What she’s told by their farm hand, Harry, can’t possibly be true, but then the most irritating guy in class, Bane, begins to act even more insane than ever, until she can no longer deny that something very unusual is going on.

When Harry doesn’t return from his quest to seek help to protect the area from the miners, Lainie sets out to discover the truth of her heritage, and of the secret she’s been born to protect.

Review: Wow! Such as interesting and original story! A little bit of Bible, a little bit of Aborigines, and a whole lot of fun! Such a unique take on fantasy, and completely different from other books in the genre. Well written, and from the beginning I knew I was reading something special. I am excited to know there will be more to this story, as I’m eager to get back to this world in the future!
