BBNYA SPOTLIGHT!!! Emma and the Minotaur by Jon Herrera

This year, the Book Bloggers’ Novel of the Year Award (BBNYA) is celebrating the 55 books that made it into Round Two with a mini spotlight for each title. For those of you who don’t know, BBNYA is a yearly competition where book bloggers from all over the world read and score books written by indie authors, ending with 15 finalists and one overall winner.

It’s been an absolute pleasure to be part of the BBNTA team again in 2022 and I’m thrilled to be part of the spotlight tours to celebrate our fantastic semi-finalists! Today I’m starting things off by spotlighting Emma and the Minotaur by Jon Herrera.

The cover of Emma and the Minotaur features a young girl riding a white unicorn on a beach, with a town in the background. In the dark sky above her, the shadow of a minotaur with red eyes can be seen in the clouds.

About the Book

All stories are true. All legends are real. Emma Wilkins must face the monster in the woods for the fate of the world.

Emma Wilkins is eleven years old and lives on Belle Street. Determined to help her new friend, Jake Milligan, she embarks on a mission to find the boy’s missing father.

Awaiting Emma in the shadows of Glenridge Forest is a world of magic, secrets, and creatures of myth and legend returning from exile. On her way to an impossible confrontation, Emma must conquer her fears and find the courage to face the monster in the woods. At stake are the fates of those she cares about most and that of the entire world.
