I’m hosting an excerpt from YA urban fantasy novel “The Druid’s Doorway”. Enjoy the excerpt!

Book Excerpt

Jake ran his hand through his hair, and his gaze slipped to Hailey as he went back to trying to figure out why he didn’t think before he spoke. She just took him by surprise, is all. He and Hailey were best friends. Sure, they hung out, ate at O’Malley’s, and he took her for rides on his Harley, but they’d never actually dated each other before. Her question just didn’t make sense at the time. Nobody else had asked him, he mused, and it was just a dance. It wasn’t as if they would be dating, so to speak. The thought of something happening between him and Hailey that would turn into one of those fiascos he’d seen in the hallways scared the bejesus out of him.

It took almost the full class period before it finally penetrated his thick skull that she was extremely disappointed he had turned her down. Maybe it wasn’t that he did, but for the reason he did. Maybe he was her last chance for a date. Maybe she had asked other guys already, and they’d told her no. Now that just pissed him off. Who in their right mind would turn Hailey down? She was pretty, had a fantastic personality, and got along exceptionally well with everyone. She was one of the smartest girls in school; heck, she even tutored him for a couple of classes.

He noticed the way her thick strawberry-blonde hair flowed down her back and caught the light when she moved slightly. He couldn’t take his eyes away, and that’s when she turned her head and looked back at him. His next breath caught in his throat about the same time his heart stopped for a few beats, and suddenly everything made sense.

About The Druid’s Doorway

The Druid's Doorway - Front CoverTitle: The Druid’s Doorway

Author: S.G. Daniels

Genre: YA Urban Fantasy

Jake Reese thinks he’s just a screwed-up high school kid living in a small town isolated in the Arizona desert. Traumatized at an early age by his mother’s sudden death—and believing he might have had something to do with it—he’s allowed his guilt and lack of self-confidence to rule his life.

Hailey is the fiery little redhead that sees Jake as more than a just a good friend. When she invites him as her date to a school function, it brings down the walls he’s built to protect his heart, and sets off a series of events that threaten not only Jake’s life, but that of everyone around him.

The discovery of a portal on the outskirts of town brings Jake face-to-face with death and reveals a closely guarded secret about his mother. No longer is his memory of her the only thing that haunts him. Something evil from her past has escaped through the portal, and nothing will prevent it from trying to steal Jake’s future.

Can Jake overcome his fears to keep Hailey safe? Will the decisions he’s forced to make destroy everyone he knows and loves? And ultimately…is he strong enough to live with those choices?

Most of her evenings she can be found in front of her computer, working on story ideas, or learning the ins and outs of the writing world. On the weekends, if she’s not spending time outside, she’s usually found nose-deep in a book. When S.G. unleashes her inner daredevil, she usually takes off through winding timber trails or country roads on the ATV. Her weaknesses are iced tea and pretzels, especially when she’s working on a story.
