#NerdBlast: THE WORLD OF ALUNA by @paulagarces1 #Giveaway @JeanBookNerd

The World of Aluna, Issue 1 
(The World of Aluna #1)

About the Book:

A conquistador, Francisco Cortes, interrupts a ritual in the jungles of South America and encounters the powerful Goddess – Pachamama. 

Back in Spain years later, his young daughter, Aluna, would rather spend her time fencing with her friend Antonio than take dancing lessons. 

When Francisco gives Aluna a strange green gemstone, she discovers that she has supernatural strength. 

But is this a blessing or a curse?
