Harry's Hunt: Ribbon of Darkness


PRIZE: Ribbon of Darkness
by Julie Coulter Bellon

(ARC copy)

SPONSOR: Julie @ LDS Writer Mom


A split-second decision could change the world’s darkest hour to one of triumph—but who is willing to pay the price? Kennedy Campbell has been running away for a long time—using her position as an international journalist to escape the ghosts of her family's past. She finds some solace working in an Afghan refugee camp, until the Taliban attacks them and Kennedy is forced to flee. She is pulled into a terrorist's realm of darkness as she fights to save those around her, but will it come at the expense of her own life? Ethan Barak leads a double life, helping MI-6 bring down arms dealers all over the world until his father is murdered by an old associate. Ethan makes his next mission a personal vendetta by tracking down the killer to Indonesia. While there, he finds himself in a position to either avenge his father or stop a terrorist attack on the Malacca Strait that will jeopardize innocent lives across the world. Can he look past his father's murder to save others? The line between justice and mercy is blurred with each passing second, and international intrigue becomes intensely personal as the age-old struggle for redemption is brought close to home.


Sounds pretty cool, huh? But what does it have to do with Harry Potter? Well...uhm...uh...oh!
  1. It's about the world's darkest hour—and we all know whose behind those dark hours, right?

  2. Kennedy is escaping ghosts from her past—and Hogwarts has several resident ghosts.

  3. Ethan's father was murdered—and so was Harry Potter's.

  4. What's wrong with you people, anyway? Not everything in this world is about Harry Potter!
Oops! Did I just say that out loud?

Whatever.

About Julie:

I'm the mom of eight children and the author of seven books. My first six were published in the LDS market, but my new novel, Ribbon of Darkness, is my first book without anything LDS in it. It's just a good, clean, romantic suspense. I also love reading LDS fiction, so my blog is all about sharing things I've learned while trying to balance being an LDS mom with being a writer. I'll also tell you about great books I've read.

Karlene,

I sent my answer to your gmail account--the little link thing doesn't work for me because I have Yahoo mail, so I'm hoping I sent it to your right address.
