Blog Tour: Spirit Binder (The Cascadian Chronicles #1) by Meghan Ciana Doidge – Excerpt

Hey! Thanks for stopping by the blog for our Tour Stop for

Spirit Binder (The Cascadian Chronicles #1) by Meghan Ciana Doidge

hosted by Bewitching Book Tours!

Theo woke severely injured, covered in blood, and missing ten years of her life.

Just to complicate matters further, Theo was born under a prophecy; one that has rabid followers with three different interpretations, all of whom are willing to sacrifice her in order to fulfill it.

Not knowing if she can trust the stranger she’s betrothed to, the warrior visiting her dreams, or even her own mother, Theo tries to piece together her past only to find that her present is far more dangerous.

It’s the power of her own blood that scares her most of all. This is a responsibility Theo never wanted, and a destiny she cannot deny, “All because of a prophecy she was trying not to believe in, but kept fulfilling.”

“Her magic radiates. She gathers followers just by walking into a room. Those men, those assassins, couldn’t figure out if they wanted to kill her or drop to their knees, and they were programmed to kill by someone powerful enough to block you.”

“Destroying a mind doesn’t take power or skill.”

“Not the point right now. You expect me to help you corral her, and yet the roses turn their heads toward her when she laughs, like she’s the bloody sun itself.”

“Be careful. It’s a fine line between admiration and worship.”

“Is it? I’ve never been good a towing a dictated line.”

“Which is exactly what makes you so valuable. Let’s just make certain it stays that way. Let the worshipers worship, while we make sure everything progresses smoothly.“

“She’s not a puppet.”

“I’m her mother, don’t you dare sneer at me. You wouldn’t want to be here without my blessing.”

“Your blessing was never a factor, Apex. Even you don’t outrank a prophecy. Why don’t we consult with Theo? She’s been waiting outside the door for some time.”

Her mother’s surprise, and then flash of anger, quickly tamped, hit Theo like a physical force as she pressed both of her palms to the library doors and pushed them open.

Hugh stood by the windows with his back to the door, which, oddly, was the same spot she’d occupied the last time she’d been in the library to confront her mother.

Rhea was behind her desk. She should really just cut the pretense and get a throne, though maybe she preferred the barrier the large, ornately carved, wood desk provided.

The tension that shrouded the room only increased as she entered.

“Theodora, you are awake. Good. Hugh and I were just discussing —”

“I heard.” She cut off her mother’s attempt to erect a cover story, and then threw herself into a reading chair off to one side of her mother’s desk. From this vantage point, she had eyes on Hugh and her mother, as well as effectively blocking the door.

“That carpet is following you!” Her mother glared toward the entrance.

“It is, and I have no idea why you have a problem with it.”

Hugh half-turned from the window. “The carpet is a prime example.”
