Blog Tour: Destruction of the Soul by J.L. Vallance (Promo Post + Giveaway!)

Welcome to my stop on the Destruction of the Soul blog tour hosted by Enchantress of Book Blog Tours.

I will be able to share a sneak peek/teaser from the book! All thanks to the author for letting me to. I am very excited for you to read it *HAPPY DANCES* and try to spot for a Russian phrase in it - I'm in love!

Plus, check out the book's soundtrack! I listened to the songs and I happened to enjoy the song Opposite by Biffy Clyro very much! SO good! I'll leave the rest for you guys to check out!

Released Date: August 20th

Book Blurb:

“There is more at stake in Aedan’s war than any of you realize.”
Vivienne Drake is lost.

She’d let every one of her walls down, finally allowing others into her guarded circle, and all it brought her was pain and devastation. Now, out of fear and desperation, she’s turning to the one being she believes will be truthful with her; the only being that’s dared to give her anything resembling an honest answer--Linux, The Cruciatum.

The Daemonium is dangerous and mysterious, and offering Vivienne things that she’s been begging for. He offers her a chance at discovering what lies just beyond her reach. Though his motives remain far from clear, there is something within him that Vivienne is drawn to. And she wants nothing more than to believe in him, to believe in the things he tells her.

Together, they uncover details of Aedan’s plans, and discover what he intends to use his daughter for. Vivienne learns that she carries within her a destructive darkness, that if she allows, will consume her, and destroy the goodness she contains.

Fighting an endless battle against lies and deception, Vivienne must find the strength within herself to remain on a virtuous path. She’ll be forced to overcome pain and obstacles in order to discover the truth of just how deep the deceit runs within The Guild.

Can she remain above the darkness for the sake of Humanity and herself, or will she allow it to devour her light and destroy her soul?


Available on Amazon!

~Excerpt~


“I won’t stop, Vivienne.”

My attention snapped back to Aedan, my eyes meeting his deep obsidian pools. My skin crawled with unease, fear gnawing at every fiber as I began to panic. There’s no way he could see me…was there? Nah, he was staring through me, not at me.

“I will continue to slaughter Guardian after Guardian until you return to me, мое сокровище.” His words were low and menacing.

My own feelings of terror were suddenly eclipsed by his overbearing feelings of greed, vengeance, and hatred. All of the air in the space was swallowed whole, leaving me gasping, clutching my ever tightening chest.

He closed his eyes, inhaling deeply, a slow, sickening grin spreading across his face. I wished more than anything that I had the powers of the Angels at my disposal in my dream state. I’d fry him where he stood without pause.

Aedan’s eyes snapped open suddenly, onyx replaced with blazing crimson.

“Do you hear that, Michael? I will get her. I will keep killing your Guardians until I do! You haven’t won yet, not by a long shot,” he growled seconds before my world went black.
