Urban Fantasy's intriguing Incantation

 
Today I'm delighted to welcome author annamaria bazzi to my blog, together with her character Dolores, from the urban fantasy novel, Incantation Paradox. What a privilege. And as soon as I meet Dolores, I realize she's not at all as I might have imagined from that gorgeous image on the book cover...not at all as you might have imagined either, so please read on and welcome Dolores.



Good morning, my name is Dolores the main character from Incantation Paradox, the first urban fantasy from annamaria bazzi. You might have seen my picture on http://annamariasbooks.com, but don’t be fooled, the person you see is actually Mona. I have beautiful blond hair and gray eyes.

I cannot begin to tell you how disconcerting it was to wake up in a young body belonging to a complete stranger. I’ll never wish that kind of fear on anyone. Things got more complicated as I realized magic is real and was used to create the blunder of a nightmare I was living through.

Most of all I missed my daughters, Ella and Chloe. But to be fair I met the most wonderful man, Jason, a brain surgeon. Unfortunately, I also met a very evil man, one I never want to encounter again as long as I live—oops! Now I’m speaking in cliché.

What? You don’t believe in magic? Take my word, it’s real, it’s around us, but those wielding magic do a good job hiding it from all those who don’t possess it. Don’t laugh at me, read the story and find out for yourself. I’m just trying to help annamaria with some of her guest posts.

I’m glad you are here and hopefully you are following the blog tour, because annamaria made sure to present three different excerpts for the tour, chapter 1, chapter 2, and chapter 3 for your enjoyment. She also went out of her way to write a different guest post for all the hosts requesting one. You shouldn’t be getting bored on this tour.

Well, I'm certainly not getting bored, Dolores. And I've loved having the chance to learn a little more about you. Thank you for visiting my blog. And good luck to annamaria with her tour.

Book Blurb:

Magic is an illusion. It doesn’t really exist. Or does it?
A horrible car accident destroys Dolores Reynard’s life. But instead of waking up in a hospital bed, she awakens in a teenager’s body. Soon, she discovers she is at the heart of the murderous mystery surrounding the death of Mona, the young girl whose body she occupies. Caught between an evil greater than she ever imagined and a wizard who heals her tattered heart, she is forced to play a dangerous game of intrigue in the hopes of finding a way to return to her previous life.
