Blog Tour: Pledged | Giveaway



Pledged
by Gwynneth White

Soul Wars Saga #1



Everyone has a soul mate. But what do you do when your soul mate would rather give his soul to the demons than be with you?

Seventeen-year-old Erin has a problem. Seth has been hers forever, but now an ancient promise is tearing him away. And Reuel, the demon to whom the promise was made, will stop at nothing to force Seth to forsake Erin and to worship him.

How can Erin win against a pledge so binding that it has damned countless others to the same fate she and Seth will face if Reuel wins – an eternity alone?

The answer lies in the past. To find it, Erin and Seth must risk all, travelling back in time to a dangerous world where love is forbidden, and life – and death – hang on a promise.

Follow Erin and Seth as they travel to ancient Shenaya to break the pledge that has plagued their families for millennia. Caught in a war between the Angelic Guardians and the Gefallen, the disembodied dead, they must fight to keep their souls in tact and their love untainted.





I have spent my entire life living in a parallel universe of make-believe characters, only coming back to reality for long enough to check that no one burnt the house down in my absence. A few years ago I decided to commit some of those ‘friends’ and their stories to paper. The Soul Wars Saga is the result of those efforts. Before that I co-authored two non-fiction travel books – The Complete Guide to 4x4 Trails and The Ultimate 4x4 Guide. Both books became instant best-sellers in South Africa where I live. And before that even, I studied a degree in African History and Politics at the University of Stellenbosch. When I’m not writing, I am a wife to Andrew and a mom to Stephanie, Erin, and Kate, our teenage daughters. My family and I live in a small town outside Cape Town with two dogs, a cat, a horse, and some neglected fish.


What is the Series About?

Erin and Seth head to desolate salt pans in Botswana, searching for a lost city where a pear-sized diamond has been buried.

Long-dead Reuel, the first of the cruel overlords who ruled the lost city (known anciently as Shenaya) and his demon followers, fight to keep the diamond hidden. For this is no ordinary gem. Embedded in its heart is the cure for the curse Reuel invoked upon his posterity. This hex forces his family to forsake their soul mates and to worship him.

Using the diamond, Erin and Seth travel back in time to before their births where, in the world of spirits, they discover that they were once soul mates. Their spirits accept custodianship of the diamond, promising to do all they can to lift the curse, knowing that Reuel and his demons will use all their formidable powers to kill them.

Seth refuses to honour the promise his spirit made. He tries to escape but there is nowhere to hide. Erin touches the diamond, taking them both back in time to Shenaya. Here Erin has to fight the powers of darkness to win Seth’s love again.


The working titles of the other two novels in the series are at present: Sacrificed and Saved.
