Star Fire Twitter Party

**This contest is closed - winner has been contacted by e-mail**

Congratulations to Diana - winner of the Star Fire bag of awesomeness  :)
Enjoy your prize!!

It's June 30, that means it's Twitter Party time for Katie' M John's STAR FIRE!!  Here's a blurb:

"Egypt changed them both in ways no one ever expected. As murder and dark arts cast a terrible shadow over both The Real World and The Realm. Mina's connection to the mysterious Star Fire Sisterhood results in her becoming The Templar's number one suspect.
Set amongst the snowy mountains of Switzerland and the ancient magical forests of France, Blake and the House of Beldevier are given just one chance to save Mina's life - the recovery of The Holy Grail.
In this epic heart-racing finale, ancient myths come alive and old scores are settled. One thing for sure ... the clock is ticking."

Star Fire, the thrilling conclusion to the Knight Trilogy by Katie M John, is a twisting maze of deceit, love, and friendship.   Blake and co are given one chance to save Mina, and to do so, they must split up and work together for the sake of not just their friend, but for all mankind.  Time is of the essence. Love and friendship are put to the test.  But who will conquer their demons, and who will fall by the wayside?

The story starts off where we last left off, with Blake and Mina returning to college after an eventful summer, where they hope to resume a normal life.  But, of course, things don't always go as planned.  Katie's lyrical writing sets the scene in a sometimes fanciful world, as we watch our four friends battle for Mina's life, and she tries to understand just exactly what she has become.  It comes to a heart pounding conclusion that leaves no one untouched.  I loved finally getting to know Delta better; she has been an enigma throughout the series, and has become quite a fan favorite.   I often found myself surprised at the turn of events unfolding in front of my eyes, and exclaimed to myself out loud on a few occasions.  I laughed, I cried,  I cheered, I felt afraid for them....
