Before you enter the giveaway, check out an excerpt from Manipulator of Elements: Earth by Jae Vogel, one of the authors sponsoring the giveaway!
"Have you ever faced something so horrible in your life?" Dion asked Lilly. "Have you ever been in a situation where any decision you made could turn out bad? I worry I'm approaching this whole thing wrong and I need some guidance. But the only guidance I get is from my dead grandparents and they don't seem to stick around very long."
"At least I can smoke outside."
They turned to see the funny little Englishman, this time in a tailored business suit, with a pipe in one hand. He inhaled the fumes one final time and placed it back in his pocket.
"No one seems to mind pipes so far. This tobacco is beastly; I need to get a better variety. They say it will be the death of me, you know. This tobacco. Can't understand why. I thought it was invented by the natives in this country and they seemed to be a healthy people."
"You have a way of appearing at the most charming times," Dion said. "Did you know that that floor polisher almost had me arrested for theft?"
"But it worked, didn't it? The ghouls couldn't stand the noise created by it. They're sensitive to light and noise. I almost gave you a camera with a flash to take down there, but I felt it would be better to let you have the floor polisher since the operation of it was simple. By the time you solved the method of using a flash on a camera, it would've been too late."
"It did work to keep the ghouls at bay," Lilly pointed out. "Besides, the ghouls had mirror shades."
"So now have you shown up to give me some wisdom?" Dion asked Edward.
"I can't dispense what I lack," Edward laughed.
"Then what ever shall I do?" Dion asked with a fake southern accent.
"Both of you are talking in circles," Lilly said. "Edward, why can't you just get to the point?"
"Because it would be too easy. And the longer I drag this encounter out, the longer I get to wear this suit and smoke my pipe. It's the little things you miss once you've passed over."
"You've never told us why you are involved," Dion snapped. "Why didn't they send Isaac Newton or Julius Cesar to help out?"
"Well, Mr. Newton would spend the entire time tracing out sun patterns. And what good is Julius Cesar without an army? I'm sorry, you are stuck with me. I made many mistakes the first time around. This is their way of giving me a chance to fix what I broke."
Dion folded his arms. "We're going to walk through those doors and Officer Karanzen and his good squad will be waiting for us. What do I do when that happens? I need to get to the Earth Element Grandmaster and have her blessing. I can't approach the next element grandmaster until I have done it."
"It's not Karanzen you have to worry about; it's the earth elementals who don't want you obtaining full power. The ghouls in particular. They're furious you've made them look bad to the mall owners and will do everything they can to keep you from reaching the elemental grandmaster."
Lilly took a step forward. "Are they going to pull that cleaning crew stunt again?" she asked him. "Because I don't want to deal with it again. Our friend Emily will never come back to this mall and I think she may be scared for life."
"They'll try something else this time, and they may be very direct how they do it. I would watch out because you have no idea where they will strike. And, rest assured, the security guards will be nowhere to be found if you need their help."
Dion looked at the doors and took Lilly by the hand. "Okay," he said to them both. "I can do this. It looks like I'm the only one who can get my parents back, and prevent even worse things from happening."
Edward raised a hand. "You can't even conceive what you're up against. I would tell you more, but they only let me share so much information. But I'm sure you'll come through, dear boy. In fact, you must…"
Edward pulled out his pocket watch again and looked at it. "Oh, lovely, time is up. You two take care and I will see you again."
Then he vanished.
