Oakwood Falls by D.C. Brockwell - Book Tour



Book Blurb 

 When Mother Nature chose Ashley Oakwood, she made a mistake. Now it’s time to eradicate that mistake.

 

From the dawn of mankind, Mother Nature has always known of humans’ destructive ways. To ensure her own survival, she created The Ferralling, a vicious and bloodthirsty breed of creature, who kept humans in check. When The Ferralling became a liability, She destroyed them, deciding to put her survival in the hands of only the most deserving humans. These chosen ones She calls The Reclaimed.

The only human to be born of the Earth, Ashley Oakwood has powers beyond that of The Reclaimed. A kind and generous young woman, who wants nothing more than to belong, Ashley watches humans from afar, until she meets James, the man of her dreams. When he rejects her, he sets in motion a chain of events that pits humans against The Reclaimed, The last of The Ferralling, and Mother Nature Herself.

 Who will emerge victorious from this brutal and bloody battle?

Excerpt
"There you are." A tall man looked down at her from the top of the embankment. He carefully traversed the steep descent. "Where is he, bitch?"

A shorter, squat man ran down the slope and joined him. "Carrie, isn't it? Where's our stuff, bitch? We want what's ours."

The third and fourth gang member arrived. The first two waited for them to navigate their way down the bank. She sat there, exposed, sweat still pouring down her. "Please, leave us alone. We didn't do anything to you."

"Hey, we'll go, won't we boys?He glanced to his left and right, as his partners laughed. "When you tell us where he is, your worthless piece of shit husband."

"He ran off. He left me here to give birth by myself.She pulled Ashley's face into her shoulder, shielding her from these bullies. "He's heading for a log cabin his dad built. If you go now, you'll catch him.Exhausted, she needed to sleep.

"We'd better take her with us, mate," tall, lanky man suggested. "What if she's lying? Will be handy to have his missus with us, wouldn't it?"

They weren't going to leave her alone. Mother! Please help us, Mother. Don't desert us now, we need you.

Nothing. No reply, no voice in her head. Would she abandon her? If so, why? Why save her from Alan, if she didn't intend saving her from four menacing thugs? Why are you doing this? Why won't you speak to me?

"You're right.Shorter, squat man took a step forward, a grin stretched across his fat face. "You're coming with us, lady. If you're lying, don't think your baby's going to stop us collecting what's ours. One way or another, we’re getting our diamonds back."

Staring down at her, he went to grab her when a chunky bramble shot out from a bush and clutched his right wrist. "What the..?" He tried to rip himself free, but the tentacle coiled itself around him tighter, the thorns clawing into his flesh.

Carrie smiled, when another bramble launched at him and grabbed his left wrist. The three remaining gang members stood with their mouths open, in stunned silence.

Will you submit to me, child? Will you stay with me, and learn my ways? Will you surrender Ashley to my teachings?

"I will, mother. You have my word," she yelled, noticing the three gang members' disbelieving stares. They might not be believers yet, but they will be...
