This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions for the YA Fantasy novel Willow Bloom and the Dream Keepers by E.V. Farrell. I have an excerpt for you to read. There's also a giveaway at the end of this post. Click here to see the other stops on the tour to read more excerpts.
Willow Bloom’s biggest challenge is to organise her thirteenth birthday party. However, a walk in the woods near her home provides some big surprises – a mystical guardian from another world, a magical forest, and the discovery that her parents are part of a secret order that protects dreams. With the discovery comes a calling. A prophecy tells of a young one who can push back the dark forces that threaten to corrupt our hopes and dreams. Is Willow that young one? Can she take on the forces of evil, the Underlord Maliceius, and win?

Willow swallowed uncomfortably at the unexpected sadness in her mother’s words. She held back a few moments. “Mum,” she said softly, “why hasn’t there been a Light Keeper in our family for so long? And what exactly is a Light Keeper?”
Her mother didn’t answer straight away; there was a faraway look in her eyes.
“Those are big questions, Willow, that require big answers.”
Audrey slowly tucked her hair behind her ears then crossed her arms on the table.
“There haven’t been many Light Keepers anywhere for over a century and there are very good reasons as to why, and we will tell you. But just not right now – not all at once. And why I haven’t been Awakened – well, I wasn’t chosen. Simple as that.”
She lowered her eyes.
Willow stared at her mother. She wanted to say something but felt completely lost for words. So she had been chosen and her mother not? Why?
