Release Day Blitz: Running Away by Julie Hutchings

Do y’all know who I love? Julie Hutchings. Do y’all know who’s releasing a book today? I’ll give you two guesses.

(Hint: it’s Julie Hutchings.)

Julie is downright delightful, and if you’re not following her on The Twitter, then you totally should be. She makes my days pretty bright. Oh, and there’s that whole you-should-read-her-book thing, too. Because you should. Especially if you’re into New Adult Paranormal Romance.

“But I don’t know what the book looks like!” you may be saying, to which I reply, “Look no further!”

“But I don’t even know what the book’s about!” you may argue next, to which I’ll say, “It’s your lucky day! I have the info RIGHT HERE.”

Running Away book blurb:

Eliza Morgan is desperate to escape the horrors of her mortal life and understand why death follows her, leaving only one man, Nicholas French, in its wake. He’s the one she loves, the one she resents, and the one fated to make her legendary among the Shinigami– an ancient order of vampires with a “heroic” duty to kill. He’s also decaying before her eyes, and it’s her fault.

On the ghostlike mountaintop in Japan that the vampires consider home, Eliza will be guided by the all-powerful Master for her transition to Shinigami death god. When Eliza discovers that sacrificing her destiny will save Nicholas, she’s not afraid to defy fate and make it so—even when Nicholas’s salvation kills her slowly with torturous, puzzle-piece visions that beg her to solve them. Both Nicholas and his beloved Master fight her on veering from the path to immortality, but Eliza won’t be talked out of her plan, even if it drives the wedge between Nicholas and her deeper.

Allying with the fiery rebel, Kieran, who does what he wants and encourages her to do the same, and a mysterious deity that only she can see, Eliza must forge her own path through a maze of ancient traditions and rivalries, shameful secrets and dark betrayals to take back the choices denied her and the Shinigami who see her as their savior. To uncover the truth and save her loved ones, Eliza will stop at nothing, including war with fate itself.

“But Michelle!” you’ll then say, “I don’t know where to find it!” And then I’ll look at you and reply, “Have I let you down yet?”
