Cover Reveal: The Stone God (Indulgence #1) – Erin Kellison

Hello!

Today I’m delighted to be helping with the Storytellers on Tour Cover Reveal for The Stone God by Erin Kellison, which is due for release May 24th 2021.

Book Summary:

Enter bestselling author Erin Kellison’s captivating new world of gods, monsters, passion, and games…

Terah Crane knows not to tempt the gods. A happy life—or at least an uncomplicated one—involves no gods at all. And since her loving grandfather bought her an Indulgence that exempts her from their service, she can focus on her other problems of being recently divorced, broke, and unemployed.

Seeking a fresh start, Terah packs everything she owns into her beat-up car and moves to her family’s empty country cottage—never mind that deadly firedrakes occasionally wander into the garden. When an unlikely flood carries a cracked pillar of stone from a nearby shrine right to Terah’s doorstep, it seems the gods demand her service after all.

The man trapped inside the monolith is still alive, and Terah’s reluctant task is to resurrect him, his godkiller of a sword—and his fury for vengeance.

The gods’ awesome powers are matched only by their careless, capricious whims—and vulnerable mortals are often the ones to suffer and die. Now, the gods are watching Terah, making her a pawn in their savage game. Her survival depends upon navigating a new world of peril and treachery, taking up a weapon, and making a fateful move of her own…

Blog Tour (Book Review): The Dragon of Jin-Sayeng (Chronicles of the Bitch Queen #3) – K.S. Villoso

Hello!

Today I am absolutely delighted to be helping to kick off the Caffeine Tours Blog Tour for the Dragon of Jin-Sayeng by K.S. Villoso, the last book in the Chronicles of the Bitch Queen. The Wolf of Oren-Yaro was one of the first books I reviewed on the blog, and I immediately fell in love with this series, and the Ikessar Falcon only cemented that fact, so I leapt at the chance to be part of this tour.

You can find my reviews for the other books here: The Wolf of Oren-Yaro | The Ikessar Falcon

“I received an Advanced Reader’s Copy of this book from the publisher and Caffeine Book Tours as part of my participation in their tour.”

Book Summary:

Queen Talyien is finally home, but dangers she never imagined await her in the shadowed halls of her father’s castle.

War is on the horizon. Her son has been stolen from her, her warlords despise her, and across the sea, a cursed prince threatens her nation with invasion in order to win her hand.

Worse yet, her father’s ancient secrets are dangerous enough to bring Jin Sayeng to ruin. Dark magic tears rifts in the sky, preparing to rain down madness, chaos, and the possibility of setting her nation aflame.

Bearing the brunt of the past and uncertain about her future, Talyien will need to decide between fleeing her shadows or embracing them before the whole world becomes an inferno.

Hello!

Today I’m reviewing Little White Hands by Mark Cushen which is released today, so please do check out the book and support the author. This was such a lovely book to read, and it just so happens to perfectly to dovetail with the first prompt for the Wyrd & Wonder challenge: ‘We going on an adventure.’

*Disclaimer: ‘I was given a copy this book in exchange for an honest review, all views are my own.’*

Book Cover

Book Summary:

Almost five hundred years have passed since the Seasons were at war.

Half a millennium since Winter defied Spring, and lost.

Generations have come and gone, not knowing the bitter freeze and howling snows of Winter ever existed.

But now, after centuries of silence, the participants in this ancient struggle have resurfaced and reignited their feud on the doorstep of an unassuming little kitchen boy.

Garlan’s dreams of being just like the knights he idolizes may not be as impossible as he has always been led to believe, when he is chased from his home and thrust headlong into the kind of adventure he had only ever read about in books.

Setting out on a journey that spans the entire kingdom of Faeland, Garlan will traverse impossible mountains and stormy seas and battle terrible monsters, all to keep the world he knows safe from an enemy who will stop at nothing to bring about a never-ending winter.

With a cast of fantastical characters to aid him in his quest, can Garlan overcome his self-doubt and find the courage he needs to rise above his humble station and become the hero he always dreamed of being?

The fate of the world rests in his hands.

The World of the Citadel

Hello!

Today is the start of #WyrdandWonder and the challenge prompt for today is ‘we’re going on an adventure’. I have a book review for Little White Hands by Mark Cushen coming up this afternoon/evening which falls firmly into this prompt.

However, I also wanted to do something a little different – and keep to my goal of talking about my wip in public at least once a week, so here is a whistlestop tour of my world (all maps are in progress – and I’m not sharing my messy handscrawled ones, if only because no one would be able to read the writing on them- including me half the time!)

It’s Going to be a Wyrd and Wonder(ful) May

Hello!

Just a short post as we sit on May-Eve. May has crept up on me rather suddenly amongst the craziness that has been going back to work, and next month is going to be busy, busy, busy. I’ve signed up for a workshop with the Storytelling Collective to create a D&D encounter, which I’m really looking forward to. While BBNYA 2021 is starting soon, and I am one of the bloggers involved this year. I’m also working away on my own novel and getting back into the groove of things as life returns to something loosely like normality.

Then there is Wyrd and Wonder…

Book Blitz (Book Review & Extract): Windborn – Alex S. Bradshaw

Hello!

Today I am delighted to be helping out with the Storytellers on Tour Release Day Blitz for Windborn by Alex S. Bradshaw, as this dark Norse fantasy caught my attention from the moment I first heard about it.

*Disclaimer: ‘I was given a copy this book in exchange for an honest review, all views are my own.’*

Book Summary:

Drowning is only the beginning…

Edda Gretasdottir is a raider, a fell-handed shield-maiden, feared along every coast. Hers is a life woven in battle scars.

But she never wanted to walk the warrior’s path. All she wanted was freedom, to earn enough gold to buy her family their own remote farm, and to escape their oppressive chieftain. Now, she has enough plunder so that she can finally hang up her shield and live in peace.

That peace is stolen from Edda, however, when raiders burn her home, destroy all that she loves, and toss her, wounded and bleeding, into the ravenous ocean.

But the fates are cruel and this is not the end for Edda: she rises from the bloody surf as a Windborn, a cursed warrior whose supernatural gifts are a poor exchange for everything she has lost.

Fuelled by rage and armed with strange new powers Edda will hunt for whoever sent the raiders, for whoever is responsible for taking everything from her. She will show them the sharp edge of her axe… or die trying.

Windborn is a dark, character-driven Norse fantasy packed with emotion, deadly foes, and vicious battles.

Get your copy of Windborn now to hear Edda’s epic tale!

Finally, a book dedicated to the craziness, determination, and spirit of grit that women possess.” Janae Bunn
