Frost Burn by K.T. Munson and Nichelle Rae - Exclusive Excerpt and Giveaway

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. The authors will be awarding a $25 Amazon or B/N GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

Fire and Frost; no two nations have ever been so divided. Only two bridges across the great River Gora connects them and their long standing hatred. When spring comes early, the Frost Nation looks upon the Fire Nation with suspicion. Soon they will discover that the rising rivers, warmer temperatures, and the earthquakes are all a result of something far more terrifying then each other. When the world seems to turn against them they will only have each other to look to. Can they put their differences aside long enough to fix their planet? They must or face extinction.

Enjoy an exclusive excerpt:

“What is it, Lady Aradel?” one girl asked.

“Kirill?” she called, having completely forgotten their fun.

“Yes Lady Aradel?” he mocked with a snide grin on his face. But then he followed her gaze.

“Who are they?” she asked, trying to tuck the children completely behind her.

“Outlanders,” he said, as the people drew closer. “Take the children back,” he commanded.

She ignored him, wondering why so many of them were coming this way. Kirill stepped out into the road, drawing their attention. They looked beaten and battered, exhausted to their very bones.

Aradel’s eyebrows rose in surprise. She turned towards the children. “Come along,” she said, hurrying them in a row down the road towards the palace. Thank the stars they weren’t far from the castle.

“What is your business here?” she heard Kirill ask behind her, his commander-of-the-guard voice kicking in.

Aradel looked over her shoulder at them. Kirill was blocking the strangers’ way. Her eyes scanned their faces. She gasped in shock and horror as her gaze fell on one. She turned and pushed past Kirill. The crowd parted for her, the people recognizing that her necklace marked her as a member of the elite, those few chosen as possible successors to Queen Vesna.

She reached the second layer of the crowd and stopped before an old woman. When the woman lifted her head, Aradel could barely manage to keep herself from gasping again at her face. Her entire cheek was covered in fractured skin. It looked like ice after someone stomped on it and cracked it.

Aradel reached out and touched the woman’s face, letting her powers fill the woman. The fractured skin mended, but it was likely that she would have that faded blue mark for the rest of her life. Once it got into the skin, nothing could make it vanish.

“What happened?” Aradel whispered, and the old woman’s eyes filled with tears.

“The spring,” she said, her voice heavy with emotion. “The spring came early.”

  1. Hi everyone! Thanks so much for joining us on this stop on the Frost Burn excerpt tour. Thanks so much to It's Raining Books for hosting us.

    If there are any questions, my co- author and I will be popping in periodically to answer them. You may be wondering what it was like to co-author together. Did we get along? Did we want to strangle each other? What was our process like since we've never met in person? :)

    No, we've never met. I'm from Massachusetts and KT is from Alaska, and we wrote this book together in a year. :) So feel free to ask away! We'll both be around.

    Have a wonderful day all!

  2. What made you decide to sit down and actually start something?

    1. Hi Mai T! We met online during the 2014 National Novel Writing Month (NANOWRIMO) and one of us (I think it was me, not completely sure though) just said off the cuff, "We should write a book together someday." 365 days later Frost Burn was completed. :D

  3. Thanks for sharing this giveaway with us.

  4. I am always looking for new authors to read. You write the kinds of books I enjoy reading.

    1. Thank you so much! Unfortunately we don't have a mailing list for this book. But both KT and I write these types of books on our own as well, so please feel free to check out our contact links above for other works of ours you might enjoy. :)

  5. Really great excerpt, thanks for sharing :)

    1. Thank you so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

  6. Sounds like a great read!!
    Thanks for the chance to win!

    1. Glad you enjoyed it! Thanks for visiting. :)

  7. I liked the excerpt, thank you.

  8. Happy to be a part of this tour, thank you for sharing!

  9. I always like to learn about collaborations.

    1. We had a great time and the story came out really beautiful. :)

    2. Two brains in this case were really better than one. I'll be honest, we had our ups and downs, our disagreements about what should happen when but Nichelle is right, in the end we had a great time and created something beautiful. Best of all I believe we've built a lasting friendship out of the experience. 😄


So... inquiring minds want to know: what do you think?
