Blood & Brute & Ginger Root
(A Bad Medicine Novella)
By Melissa Wright
Paranormal
ebook, 121 Pages
July 21st 2019 by Melissa Wright

Diana Coulton doesn’t have time for love. She’s got Bad Medicine—the family herb & book shop—to take care of, not to mention her chaotic sisters and censorious cat. No matter what Diana might want, romance is on the back burner for this Coulton sister.

Until the night well-meaning Bernadette decides to fix all that. Bernie knows better. Magic used to spur romance has a tendency to go haywire, all witches know that. She’s going to have to stop it.

If she can only remember how.

Before long, the local fire marshal shows up on Diana’s front step. But he’s not there to inspect the shop. He’s been caught in Bernie’s spell, and worse, he doesn’t even believe magic exists. Miles tries to get away from Bad Medicine, but he’s bewitched, and providence is not on his side.

Forces of nature conspire to throw Miles and Diana together, and time is running out to cure the enchantment. If they can’t figure out how to undo the magic hexing them, Diana could lose everything. But if they do, she might lose Miles.


Excerpt

You did not focus intent. You did not point. It was far too dangerous, even for little girls.

From a grown witch of Bernie’s caliber, it could be deadly.

Diana stepped forward, crunching a wayward twig beneath her shoe. At the sound, a hundred moths took flight, coming from under shelves and out of foliage in a swarm of wings and dust. They’d transformed, in a matter of hours, and fluttered like a moving cloud through the shop, circling Diana where she stood before shifting and coursing toward the open front door. They swarmed closer together, a dark mass, and then disappeared into the night.

How had it become night already?

Belle followed the path of the moths, swinging wide past Bernie to slam the front door closed and drive home the locks.

She turned, and each of them stared at the man at Bernie’s feet.

Diana inched closer, and finally, when she felt brave enough, squatted beside the body. He had a handsome face, but his chin was a little scruffy and shadows ringed his eyes. She wondered what the spell had wrought on him. She reached gingerly toward his jacket, pinching the edge of it between the tips of two fingers, and flipped it to the side.

She sucked in a breath and stood straight up, nearly knocking Bernie off balance where she waited leaned-in to see what Diana might find.

Staring back at them was an embroidered badge that read Fire Marshal.

Diana groaned, suddenly sick. “No,” she whispered. “No, no, no!” Her eyes found Belle, pleading. “This has got to be Abby’s doing. She hates us! She sent him to find a reason to shut us down and now we’ve…” She gestured helplessly toward the body on the floor. Her arms came in again to wrap around her middle. “This is going to cost us our business license.”

Belle’s lips pursed, shifted sideways as she tilted her head. She nudged the body with the toe of her boot. “I don’t know. I mean, if she hates you so much why did she send you a hunky fireman?”

Diana’s fisted hands snapped down at her sides. “He’s not a fireman!” She took a breath through her teeth. “This isn’t a joke. He is a fire marshal. As in, enforcing code.” She took a sudden step back, hand flying over her mouth. Her sisters were staring at her, so she let her fingers curl slowly into her palm to whisper, “Are caterpillars against code?”

Belle sighed, waving her hands. “Okay, let’s all just take a second to regroup.”

Leave it to Belle to have the clear conscience and level head when they’d just killed a man.

“He’s not dead,” Belle said.

Diana’s gaze snapped to hers.

“All I’m saying, is it will all be okay. We have done nothing illegal thus far.”

Bernie snorted. “Thus far.”

Belle shrugged. “Look, I’m not going to rule anything out. But we need to have a plan and panic will get us nowhere.” She looked at Bernie. “What was your intent?”

“Stop. That was basically all I had time to think.”

Belle nodded. “Great. So, nothing permanent.”

Bernie bit her lip, unsure.

Belle rubbed her face, took hold of Diana’s shaking hands. “Tea. Tea first, then a plan.”

Queen of Iron and Blood Tour Finale

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Book Tour Grand Finale
Queen of Iron and Blood
By Melissa Wright

We hope you enjoyed the tour! If you missed any of the stops
you can see snippets, as well as the link to each full post, below:

Launch - Note from the Author

Welcome to the tour for Queen of Iron and Blood, book two in the Shattered Realms series! It was a thrill to continue the story of plucky heroine Mackenzie Scott, her younger brother Riley, and the complicated creatures who invaded their world...


A black-winged bird slammed into the glass inches from Hannah’s face, the noise making her fingers tighten around the stock of her M4. She wanted to turn away from the window, from the disingenuousness of that promising sky, and cross the darkened room. But Hannah was on watch. She straightened, eyes narrowed against the light of a hidden sun, and another bird smacked into the glass with a dull thud.

Thud. Thud, thud, thud.


"Wright has a true gift for telling compelling stories with intriguing characters. Shattered Realms is no exception. In many ways, this may be my favorite story she's told to date. With enough stakes and action to keep you guessing, this is the fairypocalypse amalgamation dystopian fans didn't know they were missing."

An Indie Adventure - Excerpt

Hannah pulled the gun up to her shoulder, leaving a good ten feet between her and that glass.
She’d never wanted to join the army. She never would have.

Now she didn’t have a choice...

“Captain!” she yelled a third time, irritation clear in her voice as she pushed her helmet away from her brow. The captain came up behind her, finally, his boots muted against the damp concrete floor.

“What is it, Mitchell?”

“Birds,” she told him.

He shifted, coming into her peripheral as two more bodies slammed against the glass. He nodded. “It’s happening at East Creek, too. Nothing to be alarmed about.”


"I loved how it was written. You can actually picture the scenes as you read them. You feel like you are right there breathing the air, feeling the anxiety.

I am definitely going to reading more by this author."


What types of plants, animals, or sentient races might we encounter in the dying lands that we don’t see on Earth?

The Iron Bound are a race of chimeras, each varied and unique, though many resemble a patchwork of creatures akin to those on Earth. In addition to stealing this realm’s energy, the Iron Bound also bring over flora, which transforms into something otherworldly when exposed to the dying lands power.

Weeks after the original invasion, after the Breach and all that followed, Hannah had been in one of the trucks sent to ground zero. She had known the other soldiers for only a matter of days, but they were not easy days. She and a seventeen-year-old redhead named Riley had become close. She’d relied on him, she realized later, in a way she’d never meant to. And when Riley had told her what happened, when it had turned out he needed her, Hannah could not keep herself from promising she would help. She didn’t think she regretted it, but it was hard to be sure.

Wishful Endings - Review

"QUEEN OF IRON AND BLOOD is another thrilling adventure as war continues between two realms, risking not only humanity on earth but also those who live in the other realm. Non-stop action, endearing and fierce characters, and an uphill battle with everything at risk makes for an engaging story from start to finish. A fantastic sequel that will leave readers hoping for more to come in this magical world! . . . I enjoyed every single minute."


Her fingers tightened around the M4 at the memory. She’d never shot a man before, but her mother and father had shown her how it was done. She had hit a target enough to know she’d aimed correctly. But the bullet had missed. Hunter, that being from a hole in the sky, had curved its trajectory around him. Her gun was useless, she knew it, and yet Hannah stood in this darkened room and gripped it like it was the end of the world. Because it was the end of the world.


She hadn’t told them about, Hunter, who had brought them to safety before he’d opened the gate. She hadn’t told them about how he’d saved Hannah and the others, how he’d gotten countless men to run and hide and stay safely out of the way. The creature had brought them here, behind the shelter of this reinforced glass, his eyes glowing with a light so blue that each of them could see it was unnatural, and they’d been so terrified they’d followed him anyway. No one had included it in their report. Hannah didn’t know if it was because the creature had saved them...


Riley had kept the wound a secret, hidden from everyone so he could join the troops and fight. But when the gateway started to pull, she’d seen him moving toward it, trying to leave the safety of their shelter. She’d misunderstood at first, thought he’d been going after his sister, to help her escape the storm. Hannah’s fingers had clawed into Riley’s shirt as he fought her, tearing the material to reveal a duct-tape-covered arm. It had been hot, buzzing, and suddenly she’d known what he’d been hiding all along. Riley had been Marked.

Colorimetry - Excerpt

“I remember thinking, ‘This is it,’” she told her captain. “‘This is where they drop the bomb. Where we all die.’” She swallowed hard, waiting for the next bird to hit the glass like a child counting the seconds between lightning and thunder. It didn’t come.

“They didn’t drop a bomb,” he said.


For one brief moment, there had been pure hope. Rejoice. Relief. Weeping. An effort to regroup. 

And then came the attacks. Systematic. Orderly. Pointed. They hit strategic targets: power plants, tech firms, supply routes. It was the worst thing they could imagine, the scariest turn of events. These were not the initial attacks. The monsters weren’t merely beasts playing with their prey. This was intelligent. Deliberate.


“Captain,” Hannah asked, “what do you think happened to them?”

She didn’t have to say it. The Marked had been heavy on the minds of everyone since the first night: why had they been chosen? Were they picked at random, just to die? Once they’d been taken through the gateway, it was clear it wasn’t anything like rapture. It had been an otherworldly hole in the sky, gaping and huge and glittering like stardust. Not heaven. Not angels.

A void. And monsters.

The storm was only the beginning…

Mackenzie Scott is trapped in another realm, but that’s the least of her problems. Magic runs through her veins, and even now she can feel herself changing. She’s managed to help her brother, but in exchange, she’s turning into one of them. Worse, Mackenzie’s not just a monster. She’s their queen.

Hunter had one job: open the gateway between worlds to keep his realm alive. He hadn’t counted on betrayal. He hadn’t counted on being saved by a human girl. And he’d never guessed he couldn’t trust his own king. Now he’s trapped in a world to which he can never truly belong.

Separated by realms, Mackenzie and Hunter must save the other’s world. But the divide isn’t the only thing working against them. Beasts and men fight a dangerous battle that pits Hunter and Mackenzie against those they’re trying to protect.

And the clock is ticking.

When flying monsters break through the veil into her world, Mackenzie Scott has nothing left to lose. Her brother has been taken, her future has vanished, and all that remains is a desperate need for revenge. After discovering the breach the creatures used as a gateway, Mackenzie devises a plan to stop them, whatever the cost.

When she finds an injured stranger in the street, he just might be the key she needs to succeed. What Mackenzie doesn't know is that this stranger isn't the helpless boy he appears to be. He's one of the monsters. And he's got plans of his own.

Thrown into a dying city in another realm, Mackenzie is powerless to get back. With the gateway closing, time is not on her side. But the stranger is, and if they can escape execution, this girl and her monster might be able to save both their worlds.

Note from the Author

Welcome to the tour for Queen of Iron and Blood, book two in the Shattered Realms series! It was a thrill to continue the story of plucky heroine Mackenzie Scott, her younger brother Riley, and the complicated creatures who invaded their world. These books have given me an opportunity to play with magic, destruction, and chaos in fantastic and apocalyptic worlds simultaneously. They were great fun to create, and occasionally surprised me with twists and turns of their own. I’m excited to share a preview of Queen of Iron and Blood. I hope you enjoy the reading as much as I did the writing.
