Welcome to the Frost Fire by Olivia Rivers promo blitz, hosted by Xpresso Book Tours! I’ve got an excerpt and a giveaway for you! But first, let me tell you about author Olivia Rivers!

Olivia Rivers is a high school student, a literary agent intern, and an  obsessive-compulsive reader. She has a slight obsession with Kootenai Olivia County in Idaho, and she’s pretty sure life will always be awesome as  long as Irish accents exist. She lives with dysautonomia, a chronic  medical condition affecting her nervous system. Portions of proceeds  from her “Tortured Elements” series go toward supporting youth with  dysautonomia.

Frost FireFrost Fire (Tortured Elements #1) by Olivia Rivers

Goodreads | Amazon | B&N

“Magic is just like love, Allai. It won’t wait for permission before it destroys you.”
Like sand in an hourglass, Allai’s future is dwindling away. She’s  spent her entire life fighting the Mages who threaten humanity, and  dreams of someday eradicating magic. But all it takes is an anonymous  phone call for the truth to spill out: Allai is the one thing she  despises most.
She’s a Mage.
Though ancient law mandates Allai’s death, she still has one last chance of survival. His name is Drake Rhaize, and he swears he can lead Allai  to a sanctuary for Mages. Allai hasn’t seen Drake in years, but she  remembers him as the Demon boy who used to hold her close and softly  whisper that he’d keep her safe. But Drake has changed since then: He’s  now suspected of murder, and has been out-casted for betraying his own  kind.
While Allai doesn’t trust Drake, she has no choice but to put her life  in his hands and hope he can get her to safety. Because Allai’s father  has hired a pack of Demons to bring her back to him, dead or alive–and  Demons never stop the hunt. 

And now that I’ve got you, let’s have an excerpt!

Seeing him was like reliving a perfect daydream and her worst nightmare at the same time. She didn’t know how to react. She didn’t know how to even think.

She knew Drake was the guy who’d tried to take her life. But somehow she couldn’t feel the right kind of fear toward him. She didn’t have that gut-wrenching, instinctual terror she’d felt toward Silas. Her fear for Drake was way more confusing, but she was slowly starting to decipher it:

She was afraid of learning the truth. Of finding out whether all those memories of him—of his comforting golden eyes and soft words—were real or not.

The thought threw off her footsteps, and she nearly missed the next step of the staircase. She slammed her foot down to regain balance. Her bad foot, of course. Because wasn’t that just her luck?

Pain ricocheted through her ankle, almost tearing a scream from her. But she held it back, biting her lip and only letting out a tiny whimper. Luke was going to have to look at her ankle and make sure it was only sprained, and not broken.

As if on cue, he appeared at the top of the stairs, his arms crossed and his expression turned down in a scowl. Allai read his expression and swallowed hard to keep her pounding heart in place. How could he have found out about Drake so quickly?

Allai gripped the banister, her nails digging into the smooth varnish. She had to tell him. She had to just blurt everything out and pretend she’d had no intention of keeping Drake’s predicament a secret.

“Allai,” Luke said quietly.

She hobbled up a few more steps and didn’t reply. She just focused on the plush carpet covering the steps, trying to dig her good foot into it to keep from slipping. All she had to do was open her mouth and say some simple words: Drake Rhaize is out by the border. Go catch him. It should have been easy.

But it wasn’t.

And last but not least, the giveaway! Each blog participating may host a giveaway for one (1) ebook copy of Frost Fire. Open internationally. This giveaway ends 11:59 PM on December 20th. Enter HERE!
