"The Dark Road" by Marissa Farrar (@MarissaFarrar)

If you haven't been watching, there's this thing running around Twitter right now called the Blog Tour de Force, and it's taking the Twitterverse by storm.  Marissa Farrar's novel The Dark Road is stop number 4 out of 12.  You can check out her blog here (and enter to win her gift-basket).  You can purchase the novel here.

First couple of things about this novel.  One, it's a lightning fast read.  It's a hundred and fifty-two pages that simply fly past.  Two, it only costs $5.  That's not much of a risk--you can barely get lunch for five dollars.

That said, there's enough mystery, mayhem, twists and turns to keep you thriller fans happy, while those of you who don't typically feel the need for speed will love the detailed descriptions of exotic locales.  There is definitely sense of verisimilitude as you read Farrar's words that evoke sight, sound and smell with seeming ease.  The dark story of the dark road has the power to keep you up at night with your heart in your throat.

So, if all that isn't enough to get you to click through, I'll sweeten the pot.  You could win a KINDLE!!  That's right.  You can enter to win a Kindle filled with all 12 of the authors' books from the Blog Tour de Force.  Want to see all the other authors involved?  Go to the Blog Tour de Force's website, here.
