Welcome to this stop of the Dawna Raver’s Scavenger Hunt. Today
happens to be release day of her new novel Severed
. Many congrats to Dawna.
This happens to be my first foray with an author’s scavenger
hunt, and the new ways to spread the word of a release. Seems like quite a bit
of fun. What do you think? Can an author do without
a blog tour these days?

Quinn Sinclair trusted Arik Morgaine until he betrayed her.
Scared and alone, she finds herself delivered into the hands of the evil
Morgana le Fay. When Quinn discovers Morgana's plans are beyond demented and
seriously depraved—making life with the Changeling seem like a day at the
beach—she wonders if death is a better option?
Arik Morgaine vowed he'd save Quinn no matter the price.
When his well thought out plans go terribly awry, a desperate and heartbroken
Arik is forced to beg the cruel Triarchia for help. Unwilling to go on without his Älskling, he
answers a question that irrevocably alter their lives.
Arik and Quinn find a way back to each other, or will the price of saving her
rip them apart forever?
