Excerpt & Giveaway ~ Of Gaea by Victoria Escobar

Of Gaea

by Victoria Escobar

Release Date - March 20, 2013
Publisher - CreateSpace


Book Description

Her choice will change the world. 

She hated the wheelchair. Hated the way it made her feel less than what she was. Most of all she hated not being able to do all the things she used to. Ari had been a track and field star, an archery champion and an Eskrima pro. Now she was confined to a wheelchair slowly dying inside from its restraints. 

Medical science wasn’t working. The tests, the drugs, the therapies were all useless and a waste of time. She was tired of wasting her time; she was tired of failure. It was time to look away from the obvious and try something unconventional. 

Nothing was ever free and that included miracles. Abruptly, Ari finds herself tangled in a web of lies, questioning everything she’s ever known as truth. Never had she believed she’d be thrown headfirst into a world of good and evil, magic and Gods. 

Trapped in the middle of a war she had never known existed both parties demanded her allegiance. Ari was a catalyst that could change all the rules of the Earth. But when the time comes to make a choice will she be strong enough to know right from wrong?


Manic screaming rent the tiny space. Damia twisted and turned unnaturally as she was overtaken with darkness. Her eyes glazed over and what she had cast out was visibly returning. The visible veins and the not so visible ones turned black, starting from her head and going down her body. 

“Quiet girl.” Erelah touched the girl’s forehead and Damia dropped to the ground. 

She still sobbed but it was muted in comparison to the screaming. “I will kill her. She will die.” 

“You best pray it be so.” Erelah muttered. “You do not have long before it overcomes you. A day, maybe two at the most.” 

“You can stop it.” She whirled on Erelah. “You can change it.” 

Erelah shook her head. “Gaea, herself cast it back. I don’t play in the Gods’ pool. A lesson you should have heeded.” 

“There has to be something.” Damia insisted. “Anything.” 

Erelah pursed her lips before smiling wickedly. “Anything?” 

Damia clutched the woman’s arm. “Anything.” 

Erelah patted Damia’s hand. “I will do a summoning. Perhaps one of them would be willing to help you. No promises though.” 

“Do it.” Damia release Erelah’s arm. From a nearby table she picked up a knife with harsh, angular carvings on its blade. “I have a Goddess to kill.”
