Ransom by Michele Poague (Blog Tour & Giveaway)

Little did Kairma know, as she wished away her responsibilities, the old religious myths were true; around her neck hung the fate of the world.

Introducing Ransom by Michele Poague:

Ransom is the final book in the Healing Crystal Trilogy, a light science fiction story that follows young Kairma as she discovers the true nature of the Crystal she wear around her neck.
