Blog Tour: The Concealing - Playlist + Giveaway

Tour Schedule
Title: The Concealing (Spirit Warriors #1)
Author: D.E.L. Connor
Links: Goodreads | Amazon | Barnes & Noble
Publication Date: November 24, 2013

Sixteen-year-old Emme Belrose has it all: four best friends, a horse of her own, a hidden tepee hangout, and a blossoming romance with tall and handsome Charlie. These friends also have a secret. They can move their spirits into animal bodies: an osprey, a mustang, a grizzly, a mountain lion and a coyote.

But when Charlie, who has a gift for seeing the future, has a vision of Emme drowning in the icy Yellowstone River, the Spirit Warriors must train their animal bodies to kill an enemy they know is coming… but know nothing about. Suspenseful, romantic, and awash in Native American magic, Spirit Warriors captures the tragic enchantment of the American West—and confirms the power of friendship.

The Concealing Playlist
Arranged By D.E.L. Connor
