BT* & Giveaway!! Foresight

FORESIGHT, part one of the Guarded Secrets series Ilona has been in love with her unsuspecting best friend, when a dashing stranger explodes into her life. The sudden magnetic feeling frightens her. Will he break her heart, or will he bring true happiness?
A sinister dark man appears, Ilona connects his presence with the series of mysterious deaths around her. She is an emergency room doctor, born into an ancient tribe which still exists hidden amongst us with its fiercely enforced rules. She doesn’t know much about her heritage besides legends and rituals that she continues out of respect for her parents.
 
She begins to remember the forgotten instructions concealed as rhymes her mother was teaching her since she was a small child and discovers that she can rearrange the human body to its healthy state.
 
This ability is exciting as well as frightening. She is conflicted between having confidence in her intelligence and inherited abilities while having no confidence as a woman. Her insecurity created barriers which keep others out, and I also keep her caged in.
 
She has been evacuated from her easy and steady life, and is forced to face the unknown.

Vicky’s Thought’s
I must start by saying I was not sure how to rate this book.. It has 5* potential, But It does need a little work.
When I read the synopsis I thought.. Hmm this sounds interesting.
I don’t really know about the Hun culture, but reading this story definitely left me intrigued.
I felt I could relate  with Ilona  and the other character’s as well.
Erika was able to keep me interested, there were some interesting tales and secrets. There was some spots where I was missing part of the story.. not sure what happened there, but it did detract from the story a bit, but not enough that I did not keep going. The only thing I did not like was some of the repeating though-out.  I was a little angry at the end because I was left hanging at a very intense spot. BUT that just makes me want the next one NOW..
I would recommend the story  even though it could use a little work, I enjoyed the character’s, the mystery and the suspense that was there and the world and story that Erika has created.

I love to read magical realism/fantasy stories. About two years ago, on a rainy afternoon, I wanted to snuggle up on the couch to read, but I didn’t have any new books.
I voiced my disappointment, while browsed my numerous bookshelves.
My daughter had enough after a while and said, “Mom, stop whining! If you don’t have a book to read, then write one.”
She surprised me with her statement, but I took her advice, sat down and started writing my Guarded Secrets series.
