Book Summary:

Rashell’s brother has vanished. When the local villagers express no concern, she enlists the help of a stranger from a faraway city to find Teth.

Investigator Derrik discovers the people worship a massive stone known as the Amethyst. Even more bizarre, an ancient relic of a mummy fuels their reverence.

Given limited time, Rashell and Derrik confront these mysterious elements at play, all the while striving to uncover what happened to Rashell’s brother.

Sounds amazing, right?

Well then, wait until you see the cover…

Blog Tour (Book Review) – The Jealousy of Jalice (A Disaster of Dokojin #1) – Jesse Nolan Bailey

Hello,

Today is my stop on the Blog tour for the Jealousy of Jalice by Jesse Nolan Bailey, organised by Xpresso Book Tours. This is a book that had been on my radar for a while as part of SPFBO 6, and I had already fallen in love with the cover and the premise so I leapt at a chance to read it as part of the tour, and discovered one of my top books for 2020.

I hope that you will check out the author and book, as well as the other blogs on the tour (You can find the schedule HERE). There is also a giveaway where you can get your hands on your own copy of the book and some other goodies (Please note this is US only), and the link to that can be found at the bottom of the page.

Book Summary:

The Realms have split apart, the Stones of Elation have been hidden, and warnings of dokojin drift among the tribes.

The land and its people are corrupted. The Sachem, chief of the Unified Tribes, is to blame.

It is this conviction that drives Annilasia and Delilee to risk their lives. Afraid of the aether magic he wields, they enact a subtler scheme: kidnap his wife. In her place, Delilee will pretend to be the chieftess and spy on the Sachem.

Unaware of this plot against her husband, Jalice is whisked away by Annilasia. Pleading with her captor proves futile, and she rejects Annilasia’s delusional accusations against the chief. After all, the Sachem has brought peace to the land.

Yet a dangerous truth hides in Jalice’s past. As she and Annilasia flee through a forest of insidious threats, they must confront the evil plaguing the tribes and the events that unleashed it

Self-Published Fantasy Month TBR

Hello!

We’re days away from the start of September and the launch of Self-Published Fantasy month (Website| Twitter), so I thought that I would compile my TBR for the event.  It was hard to narrow down the ones I wanted to include as I have a large backlog of indie fantasy that I want to get too, and I keep adding more to the list, and I am hoping that I will be able to read a few more than the ones mentioned here throughout September but decided to keep them as bonuses and focus on this TBR.

However, in addition to these ten I will also be participating in blog tours for ‘The Skald’s Black Verse’ by Jordan Loyal Short and ‘The Jealousy of Jalice’ by Jesse Nolan Bailey so please keep an eye out for those tours.

Book Summary:

A tale of conquest, dark kings, and daemonic heroes. A spellbinding story that will enchant you with its plot of ambition, love, betrayal, sacrifice and redemption.

Over fifty years have passed since Daleth the seemingly immortal Witch-King and his army conquered the Ember Kingdom.

Now, with the once fertile lands and its enslaved people dying around him, the Witch-King, driven by his insatiable thirst for eternal youth, prepares his forces to march on the prosperous neighbouring Freestates. It will be the beginnings of a conquest that could destroy nations, bringing death and destruction on an unimaginable scale.

Then, when a peasant huntress whose rare gift was concealed from birth is exposed, it sets in motion a chain of events that could alter the destiny of generations to come.

IFA Summer Challenge: Mini Reviews 4

Hello,

Here are my mini reviews (also available on GR) for the indie books that I read as part of the IFA Summer Challenge for the past couple of weeks:

Death and Taxes – J. Zachary Pike
27420351. sy475

Book Summary:

When Arthur takes a job at a Blue’s Doughnuts, he has no idea that his fat, obstinate boss Buford Lafont has a secret: in addition to running a failing bakery, Lafont moonlights as a private investigator and a reluctant expert on the paranormal phenomena that threaten humanity.

Detective Lafont wants little to do with the darker side of his small New England town, but the spirits and powers that lurk in the shadows won’t leave him alone. His first case with Arthur at his side starts out as a simple disappearance, but quickly draws them into the realm of occult mathematics and sinister rituals. It will take all of Lafont’s skill and cunning if they’re to survive the dark truth behind the victim’s death and taxes.

Book Summary:

A dead god. A brutal murder. One second-rate mage.

It was only supposed to be one little job – a simple curse-breaking for Mennik Thorn to pay back a favour to his oldest friend. But then it all blew up in his face. Now he’s been framed for a murder he didn’t commit.

So how is a second-rate mage, broke, traumatized, and with a habit of annoying the wrong people, supposed to prove his innocence when everyone believes he’s guilty?

Mennik has no choice if he is going to get out of this: he will have to throw himself into the corrupt world of the city’s high mages, a world he fled years ago. Faced by supernatural beasts, the mage-killing Ash Guard, and a ruthless, unknown adversary, it’s going to take every trick Mennik can summon just to keep him and his friend alive.

But a new, dark power is rising in Agatos, and all that stands in its way is one damaged mage…

IFA Summer Challenge: Mini Reviews I

Hello,

So this is up a little later than planned, as my laptop is slowly dying (the fact that it is alive at all is a miracle, especially as it had an encounter with the bath a few years ago) and refused to connect to the wifi at all yesterday. As part of the IFA Summer Challenge, I will be posting mini-reviews once a week to share what I’ve been reading, my thoughts and hopefully to recommend some fun indie reads to you.

For, week one I read 10 books (furlough and bad weather, is good for reading). One of these was a reread of ‘Of Honey and Wildfires’ by Sarah Chorn (Review), which is also an contestant in this year’s SPFBO and deserves all the love in the world. I also, finally got to finish The War Eternal trilogy with ‘From Cold Ashes Risen’ by Rob J. Hayes which I reviewed a couple of days ago (Here). The others, are below and are from authors that I hadn’t read before.

Today, I will be reviewing ‘From Cold Ashes Risen’ the third book in The War Eternal trilogy by Rob J.

Book Summary:

The Corpse Queen Comes.

Eskara has lost everything. The War Eternal has cost her everything she loves, and the Iron Legion has taken the rest. Yet there is something that is still hers, something that kept her warm during her time in the Pit. Anger and a lust for vengeance. First on the list of those who must pay, the Emperor of Terrelan.

Her friends counsel peace, but her inner demons push for war, and Eska finds herself caught in the middle. Will she find a way to reap her vengeance? Or will the enemies of her past catch up to her first?

One thing is certain. The world will soon know fear when the Corpse Queen ascends her throne.
