In a battle of wills, who is strongest? The one who hates or the one who loves?

In a test of faith, who will fight the hardest? The one who has everything to lose or the one who believes only in herself?

For Lila Gray, the answer is both. For the Magi, the questions are pointless since they can’t lose, and they’ve been waiting since before Lila’s birth for this one moment. Lila only needs to find them to understand her entire purpose in life. This time, though, instead of protecting her people, Lila may be leading them all, including her unborn child and the man she loves, to their deaths — and not by accident.

In the ultimate trial of heart and soul, and the conclusion to the Lila Gray series, Lila will learn that the greatest weapon of war is herself, with one ultimate unknown. For which side will she fight? | Barnes & Noble

About the Author

Jocelyn Adams grew up on a cattle farm in Lakefield and has remained a resident of Southern Ontario her entire life, most recently in Muskoka. She has worked as a computer geek, a stable hand, a secretary, and spent most of her childhood buried up to the waist in an old car or tractor engine with her mechanically inclined dad. But mostly, she's a dreamer with a vivid imagination and a love for fantasy (and a closet romantic — shhh!). When she isn't shooting her compound bow in competition or writing, she hangs out with her husband and young daughter at their little house in the woods.

Guest Post - Jocelyn Adams describes her perfect day

The perfect day

There are many kinds of “perfect days” for me, as I’m sure is true for most of us.  As we grow older, our moods shift and we try new things, our dreams change.  When Jen asked me to describe my perfect day, I tucked the idea into the back of my mind to stew for a while, and after a great deal of thought, I think I’ve got it pegged.  I’m a simple country girl at heart, so it only makes sense that my favorite day is equally simple.

One of the best things about my house is that it’s in the middle of the woods, and it’s always dark at night.  On my perfect day, I wake to the pattering of rain on the roof, the fresh breeze blowing the curtains in across my bed in the grey twilight of early dawn.  My wee turtle will have snuck into my room at some point during the night, and I’m hugging her, breathing in her strawberry shampoo and little girl scent.  My hubby has his arm thrown over both of us, his warm, even breaths on my nape.

This is my quiet time, when most of my creativity happens.  Entire novels have been “mentally” written between that glorious time between waking up and getting out of bed.  Once we’re up, we’ll have breakfast in the screened in porch listening to the birds singing their rain song, me with a Forever Nuts tea in my hand.  The next couple of hours I’ll spend emptying my ideas into the laptop or editing, depending on what stage I’m working on.

When the rain clears up, we’ll take my daughter for a picnic at the park high above our town overlooking the lake, then walk the trail along the river before taking a swim at the beach there.  Back at home, my hubby will fire up the charcoal grill and fill our yard with the scent of smoked ribs or chipotle hamburgers while my girl and I have a swing in the hammock beneath the maples.  After a leisurely supper, we’ll finish off with a hunt for the perfect marshmallow-roasting sticks, and once the campfire is perfectly ablaze, we’ll snuggle together while toasting our treats to the perfect brown above the coals.

Once my wee girl is tucked into bed, I like to read while the damp evening breeze rolls through the house from the open windows, maybe sipping a Bud Light Lime.  Life really doesn’t get much better than that for me.

Tell me about your perfect day.  I’d love to hear from you.
