SPOTLIGHT, Giveaway & Book Excerpt: Eve Hallows and the Book of Shivers by Robert Gray

eve hallows tourToday we have a book excerpt from the book Eve Hallows and the Book of Shivers. This is part of a blog tour hosted by I Am A Reader. Here at The Opinionated Me we had a book blast on  January 10 for this book. Enjoy!

·   The scene cut to the newswoman who had, not long ago, barged into the grocery store to interview me.

“We're live in front of the Grocery King in the Poconos where a hostage situation is unfolding. One person, an unnamed elderly woman, has died. The suspect, fifteen-year-old Evelyn Hallows, also of the Poconos, is considered responsible for the death. I managed to get a word from the suspect moments ago. Here's what she had to say ...”

My angry face filled the television screen—Oh, my Jack, I looked like a maniac. Both Warren and Carly Beth glanced at me with pinched faces, then returned, with rapt attention, to the television.

The newswoman asked, “Eve Hallows, how many victims have you killed so far? Why did you take that poor woman's life? How many more innocent women and children have to die before your demands are met?”

And then there was me, looking totally and completely murderous. “I'll kill anyone. The hostages are mine! Everyone is mine! It's me you should be worried about!”

Seriously? I didn't recall saying those things ... well, most of it, at least.

eve hallows shivers So far, Eve's summer vacation has been uneventful, but when her grandparents—traveling all the way from the monster world known as Gravesville—appear at her doorstep, she learns that the URNS Director has gone missing. Worse, a new director, bent on destroying humans, has taken over URNS. Eve and her family are no longer safe in the human world, and as they race to escape this new threat, Eve stumbles into a trap, which forces her back to Gravesville along with her family and friends. But once there, everything goes adorably wrong, and her best chance to get out of this mess is to seek out The Book of Shivers and the elusive author Sedrick Creach—the only creature who knows the secrets of the Nightmare Books. Unfortunately for Eve, searching for Sedrick and the next book in the series will reveal uncomfortable details about her own murky past. Once again, Eve and her friends find themselves on an incredible adventure—one that involves underground battles with bloodthirsty creatures, a lightning-fueled train, and some unexpected new allies. Hilarious and bone-chilling, this third book continues the story of an unlikely hero trying to save not one, but two worlds … This time around, though, Eve's not sure she can even save herself.
