Dale Ibitz was born in Oxford, Connecticut, grew up in the state of Washington, and then re-located back to Connecticut as an adult. Always a lover of books, she spent much of her childhood reading, visiting the library (her best friend’s mother was a librarian…how convenient), and writing. She majored in English at Central Connecticut State University, and while Dale holds a full-time day job where she’s immersed in the dry life of writing contracts, she’s been writing young adult fantasy and mid-grade contemporary for seventeen years (on the side, of course).

I Heart SPRING!

I heart Spring! Sunday morning, and yes, no snow. I mean, there's still snow on the ground but it's not falling from the sky. That's a good thing. And better yet, the weatherman says by the end of the week we'll be in the high 50's. Woot! After having the coldest month in recorded history in CT this winter, I am more than ready for spring.

And we're still sharing the Love! And Giveaways! And inform Read more of this blog post »

Water over Blood (Last Moon Rising #3) (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:38PM
Description: Darkness. Pain. Loss. This is what seventeen-year-old Haley feels when waking up in a damp, gloomy cave. She doesn’t know who or where she is, nor does she remember that she is Eyid-emos, a descendant of the God of Air. All she knows is the dark angel, Dane, who comes to her rescue, making her feel safe and protected. It’s from Dane, descendant of the God of Fire, that she learns she’s looking for the lost stones of power to end the war between the nature gods. But the safe feeling doesn’t last long. Dark memories of a gorgeous blond guy name Tuggin begin to haunt her, and Haley realizes on some levels she’s fighting against remembering. There’s something both endearing and frightening about the hall-god with the cold, blue eyes, this stranger who she remembers as being both kind and brutal, who’s one of the hated witches on Eyidora, and who holds deadly secrets. When Haley and Dane meet with Tuggin and his companions, everything changes as they hunt for the Water Eyid stone. They need to work as a team to end the war, but suspicion and rivalries run rampant in the group. Will Haley be betrayed by the one person she trusts the most?

He finds Brooke, a nineteen-year-old descendant of a Naphil whose destiny is to hunt rogue reapers, suffocating in a semi-agoraphobic cocoon since witnessing a reaper steal her brother’s soul. Two destinies . . . Christian has found the angel who can break his curse, and the seduction begins. To break her phobia’s hold, Brooke embraces her angelic role and makes it her mission to kill rogue reapers to avenge her brother’s murder.

Tuggin, the stone-faced Eyidoran witch paid to protect her, and who’s also been assigned to kill her. Haley takes comfort in new friend Luke, a descendant of the God of Land with undeniable strength. She bonds with him, and he is both a shield against danger and a confidant to her insecurities and fears. But has she put her trust in someone who may be just as dark and dangerous as Ian, the Fire God descendant himself?
