Check it Out: Deadly to Promise by Mia Hoddell

Today I have the second book in a series for you to check out--Deadly to Promise by Mia Hoddell! I have a fun little interview, an excerpt, and a giveaway, plus all the info on the book and author. Enjoy!


The Interview
Top Five Ways Elements Can Be Used As A Super Power

Oo I love this and if I had to have a super power I would definitely have control of the elements as you could do so much! These are my favourite things you could do with elemental powers (besides manipulating the elements in general), although there is probably a lot more.

1. Air – you could fly.
2. Water –  breath underwater.
3. Earth –  control natural things on the planet and make them do what you want.
4. Fire – I just think it would be cool to have control over fire and not get burned.
5. Spirit – controlling emotions.

The Book
Title: Deadly to Promise
Author: Mia Hoddell
Publishing Date: November 23, 2013

A broken promise is all it takes.

Becoming an E.K isn’t a choice for Serena – it’s a necessity to survive. To destroy the Elementals she has to leave her old life behind. She has to train and follow a strict regime. But with time against her, she has only a few weeks to master the skills Kai spent his whole life perfecting. 

The knowledge passed down from her ancestors is crucial to the Elementals demise and the success of their mission. However, the path they must follow is lined with riddles, each more confusing than the next. It doesn’t matter how close to succeeding they get, it’s never enough. The Elementals are one step ahead at every revelation and that can only mean one thing – the E.Ks have a traitor among them.

For one week only, both Deadly to Love and Deadly to Promise are 99c / 77p!

The Excerpt
“Good, now we are starting to get somewhere. Although, you are totally wrong about the Elementals; they are killers and you are blinded into thinking what they want you to see. They have never hurt you because you have aligned yourself with them but they have killed many people and you are helping them.”
She flinched as Jack’s words struck a nerve. “Lies!” she hissed before grabbing Tyler’s wrist, taking him by surprise and dislodging the gun from his grip.
All the other E.Ks raised their weapons, training their barrels on her automatically as Tyler regained his balance.
“Earth now!” she bellowed and the house began to shake as a green woman in a long flowing dress made up of ivy and spirit started to appear in front of us.
On my weakened leg I collapsed to the floor again with a scream.
The E.Ks opened fire but another Elemental took its place within seconds.
“Kai, you have to silence her. It’s like what happened with me!” I shouted over the noise as I clutched at my ankle, which was now bright red and sending sharp flashes of pain through my leg.
“Tyler, silence her,” I heard Jack roar and then everything seemed to slow down. I saw her body, limp and lifeless falling towards the floor. Her arms trailed behind her, bouncing up slightly as they collided against the dirty wooden planks with a thud.
I screamed, covering my face so as not to see what had happened. Please don’t be dead, please don’t be dead, I repeated in my mind despite what she had done to us. Shooting a person was a lot different from murdering an Elemental in my opinion.

The Author
Mia Hoddell lives in the UK with her family and two cats. She spends most of her time writing or reading and loves anything paranormal. Mia always had a love of writing but never reading. She was more interested in sports and hated sitting still - despite getting three poems published before the age of sixteen. Finally though, she found some novels that captured her interest and developed a love of reading which is now one of her favourite hobbies.
Mia began with poems before moving on to short stories. Although she enjoyed this, Mia found she had too much to tell with too little space, so later on she created her first series 'The Wanderer Trilogy' and from there other ideas have emerged. With a total of nine books planned at this moment, she is busy working on her second series 'Elemental Killers' before moving onto the next idea on her ever growing list.
