GIVEAWAY: The Child Returns (audiobook) by Kristen Taber

It's Monday... again. And what better way to start a week than with a giveaway. To celebrate Aerenden: The Child Returns being released on audiobook, we are having a giveaway for one copy of the audiobook through  

I reviewed this book back in March 2013. You can read my review HERE. I have not yet had the chance to listen to this book on audio, so consider yourselves lucky for this chance to win. 

As this is a self-published, independently released book, many of you may not have heard too much about it. I am promoting it every chance I get, as it is amazingly written. I knew it would be good, just from the word of mouth I have heard, but I was not prepared to be just so blown away. Taber's writing is amazing, and she is a fantastic story teller. 

About the book:

Aerenden: The Child Returns (book 1)
by Kristen Taber
published May 21, 2012
by Sean Tigh Press
Paperback: 382 pages

Goodreads: Seventeen-year-old Meaghan has no idea her perfect life has been a lie — until she witnesses her parents’ brutal murders at the hands of red-eyed creatures.

After nearly sharing their fate, she escapes with her best friend, Nick, who tells her the creatures are called Mardróch. They come from another world, and so does she. Now that the Mardróch have found her, she must return to her homeland of Ærenden or face death.

Left with little choice, she follows Nick into a strange world both similar to Earth and drastically different. Vines have the ability to attack. Monkeys freeze their victims with a glare. Men create bombs from thin air. Even Meaghan’s newly discovered empath power turns into a danger she cannot control.

But control becomes the least of her worries once the Mardróch begin targeting her. When Nick confesses he knows the reason they want her, she learns the truth behind the kingdom's fifteen-year civil war — a long-buried secret that could cost Meaghan her life.

 About the author: Born in Bangor, Maine, Kristen Taber spent her childhood at the feet of an Irish storytelling grandfather, learning to blend fact with fiction, and imagination with reality. She lived within the realm of the tales that captivated her, breathing life into characters and crafting stories even before she could read.

Those stories have since turned into over a hundred poems, several short tales, and five manuscripts in both the Young Adult and Adult genres.  Currently, Ms. Taber is completing the five-part Ærenden series from her home office in the suburbs of Washington D.C.
