Owlet Book Tour w/Excerpt & Giveaway

Book Excerpt: “You know those aren’t the real lyrics, right?” Diana asked, coming back into the room with food in her arms and piling it up on the nightstand.

 “Yes, I know. It is a fairy tale version I sang for her...before,” Falcon answered.

 “I sometimes wondered if you might be the boy Roger told me about. I didn’t think about it until you dove into the water though. It was a gutsy move, considering all Stryx alike have mammalian reflex.”

“Caleb taught me to move past mammalian reflex and move only on instinct, letting the falcon take over. Your soul knows what you truly want even if your mind isn’t able to command your body anymore.”

“How? How could he do that? No, forget I asked.”

“It is all right. For once I am happy that Caleb took me. I have come to terms with it. It brought me to Iris and now I have her back and today his training saved her, even if he had originally meant for it to kill her. He put me in the water as a child, so young I couldn’t understand, and throughout my life he did it over and over again. He said that separation between the two sides of your soul makes them stronger; it makes them cling to each other because they are desperate not to be parted again. He was right, but the side effect was that I learned how to react and move even while in the water. It separated my soul but the falcon in me learned how to rise up and take control to protect me.”

“That sounds...” Diana’s face said it all. She was clearly horrified.

 “Like a nightmare? It was. I can still remember when he told me he only did it for very special little boys...” Falcon answered.

 “I am so sorry,” Diana whispered. “I never knew...”
