VIRTUAL BOOK TOUR FOR MADISON'S SONG

Remember awhile back we had a cover reveal for MADISON'S SONG by Author Christine Amsden. Today, we have much more. I'm happy to be a part of the author's tour. Enjoy.



Her voice is enchanting; his soul is black...

Madison Carter has been terrified of Scott Lee since the night he saved her from an evil sorcerer – then melted into a man-eating monster before her eyes. The werewolf is a slave to the moon, but Madison's nightmares are not.

Despite her fears, when Madison's brother, Clinton, is bitten by a werewolf, she knows there is only one man who can help. A man who frightens her all the more because even in her nightmares, he also thrills her.

Together for the first time since that terrible night, Scott and Madison drive to Clinton's home only to discover that he's vanished. Frantic now, Madison must overcome her fears and uncover hidden strengths if she hopes to save him. And she's not the only one fighting inner demons. Scott's are literal, and they have him convinced that he will never deserve the woman he loves.

*Stand-alone companion to the Cassie Scot series

MADISON’S SONG Review

By Christine Amsden


When you hear the word werewolf, what comes to mind? A savage beast that kills for the joy of killing? A human who turns into a furry creature at the full moon? A poor soul who would rather be human, but has no choice? Or perhaps you think all these things.

Award winning author Christine Amsden’s latest fantasy novel, MADISON’S SONG, starts with action in the prologue and never lets up.  Madison is drawn to Scott and possibly loves him. She also fears Scott because he has the power to change her life, and not for the better. Scott is a werewolf (his pack's alpha) and also a powerful sorcerer, who loves Madison, but doesn’t want to hurt her and tries to protect her from himself.  When her brother calls and tells her he’s been turned into a werewolf and needs magic, she knows the only one who can help her save her brother is Scott. Madison and Scott soon discover that much more is going on than her brother being turned into a werewolf.

Madison has a power of her own, though she seldom uses it. She has little confidence in her abilities, but when she discovers that her gift may be all that saves them from death or worse, will she find the courage to use her power?

Ms. Amsden has written a story about werewolves, magic, sorcerers, romance and prayer. Most of all, MADISON’S SONG is a story about making the best of the life one has. I especially like the way Madison doesn’t depend on just her power to succeed, but puts her faith in God through prayer. This is a story that shows the brutality of the werewolf, along with the evil in man. The author also manages to make Scott a likable character in spite of his behavior as a werewolf. I can only hope we see more of Madison and Scott in the future.

    1. It is a bit different, Pat, but Scott cares for Madison (when he'[s not a werewolf) and really wants to protect her.

  5. I remember seeing this cover! It sounds like a fascinating and intense read. I have had to face some of my fears, but some of my deepest ones I haven't had to face yet- luckily (and hopefully I never have to). :)

    Thanks for the awesome giveaway and best of luck to Christine!

    1. It would make a gorgeous painting, Stephanie. I guess the wolf could be taken out. Hadn't thought of it. :)

  7. I normally shy away from werewolf/vampire/sorcery/witchcraft stories, but injecting faith in God and reliance on His ability to help you use the power He has given you has me intrigued. Thanks for sharing.

    1. he author's use of faith is one of the things I really like about the story, Aleta. In the midst of werewolves and evil, God is there. Thanks for stopping by.
