Chosen: The Scavenger Hunt

Have you ever wished you had superhuman abilities – a six sense? An ability to fly? Superior strength? The shy and introverted Mariah Adele Carpenter sure doesn’t! The talent of clairvoyance that plagued her since childhood has been carefully concealed by her mother to prevent marking her a paranormal freak.

In Paula Bradley’s heart-pounding debut novel CHOSEN, Mariah’s faith, perceptions, and sanity are put to the test. After a suicide attempt, her powers can no longer be concealed. Mariah thought the woes of her powers would be extinguished by taking her life, but somehow a mysterious being saves her and sets her on a journey. The supernatural rescue enhances Mariah’s extrasensory power so much that she becomes a person of interest to the FBI, another government agency, and the media. She can’t escape the intensifying outer turmoil and she quickly finds herself tormented by nightmares and an obsession of trying to find the ambiguous character that haunts her dreams. This page-turning thriller is a trip for the reader as well as the gripping danger and unexplained happenings challenge their own beliefs on the nature of faith and the value of discovery. Is Mariah’s gift a blessing or a curse? You decide!

I was lucky enough to be contacted to be part of this scavenger hunt and here's my excerpt!

His dark brown eyes, shot with flecks of gold, gazed down at her, radiating compassion and love and a deep sadness. His full lips, nearly hidden behind his bear, thinned slightly. With what appeared to be a sigh of resignation, he unclipped a metal tube from the belt around his waist and pressed it against the back of her neck.

Sounds intriguing right?

Well lucky for you, I have one (1) copy of the book to offer!

All you have to do is leaving a comment with your guess as to what this metal tube is, and a way to contact you!

  10. I'd say a pressure syringe to inject a chemical or a small chip to stop her from using her power.

  12. I think it's a communication device that'll allow Mariah to somehow 'read' his mind because, for some reason, she can't. :-/

  13. I think it's one of those futuristic syringes that use compressed air to inject with instead of a needle, hence the tube! Thanks for a fun giveaway:)
