Day #7 Fantastical Blog Hop

fantasy event 1Today is Day #7 of the Fantastical Blog Hop and things are going GREAT! Up today is author Joseph Lallo for his novel, The Rise of the Red Shadow.

Check out this great recap:

Every story must begin somewhere. For the warrior who would come to be known as the fearsome Red Shadow, the story began in a forgotten glade deep in the land of Tressor. It was there that a pair of trackers, eager to retrieve a lost slave, instead found an orphaned malthrope. Had it been a human, it might have been treated with compassion, but in the eyes of human society a malthrope was a monster, a mix of fox and man believed to be a murderer and thief by its very nature. The beast was to be sold for a handful of silver, but fate intervened in the form of an old blind slave named Ben. Under the learned hand of the one human who believed in his potential, the young malthrope would instead be given the wisdom to take his first steps on the long journey to his destiny.

The Rise of the Red Shadow chronicles the early life of one of the most mysterious figures of the Book of Deacon trilogy, the creature called Lain. It tells of his years working and learning on a Tresson plantation until a dark day of vengeance and bloodshed finally set him free. From there you will follow as he finds his place in the world, learning what it is to be a malthrope, and turning to the purpose that will guide him for the rest of his days. It is a story of love, hate, and lessons hard-learned, revealing the painful choices one must make to become the hero the world needs.

Check out these reviews:

“I absolutely loved all the Book of Deacon series, and this one was just as wonderful.”

“Rise of the red shadow was truly an amazing book, it was impossible to put down!! I loved how the author thought out every detail on how events can change.”

Day #6 Fantastical Blog Hop

fantastical reads stripToday is Day #6 of the Fantastical Blog Hop and on the hot seat today is author P.L Blair for Shadow Path.

Here’s a recap:

Magic and crime. Agatha Christie meets J.R.R. Tolkien in “Shadow Path,” the first book in the new Portals series by author P.L. Blair. An Ogre murdered with a rune-inscribed sword is just the beginning as Kat Morales, a very human detective on the Corpus Christi, Texas, police force, and her Elf partner Tevis McLeod follow a blood trail that leads to Pixies, necromancy and Magic of the Blackest kind … to its climax in a stronghold Between worlds, where Tevis must duel spell for spell with a former lover who wants to see her old flame extinguished permanently.

And some really wonderful reviews:

“A well developed and written book. P.L. takes an older genre, “crime/police stories”, and twists it into a unique tale with fantasy and magic. It is an enchanting blend!”

“SHADOW PATH is a combination fantasy, suspense novel that I fell in love with from the very first line.”

Meanwhile, due to tragic events caused by the Divide, Keira’s younger sister, April, has left her baby in the realm across the sea. Now she returns to Terene. With the arrival of two very different men, her life becomes complicated. In order to be safe, April must hide her identity. In order to live, she must open her heart.

Day #1: Fantastical Reads Blog Hop – Check out some Great Reads 2/1-2/8.

fantasy event 1Hi everyone! I’m so excited to participate in my first fantasy blog hop. What is that, you might ask? It’s when a group of authors come together and do a special promotion. We lower the prices of our book for a week, (none are over $3.99) we feature author interviews, have reader polls, sweepstakes, give-aways and lots of swag. And, hopefully everyone will find some great new authors to put on their e-readers.

This is Day #1 of the event. All the books here are participating in the event and they’re all successful fantasy novels with great reviews. As you can see, my novel, THE HUNT FOR XANADU is there as well. I dropped the price this week to $2.99. So far, I’ve gotten 14 fantastic reviews, so please feel free to check them out here: http://amzn.to/MslDH3

Now, each day I’m going to blog about the event and showcase certain authors. I’m so excited to start with YA author, Elise Stokes, who has written the Cassidy Jones series and I want to tell you about Cassidy Jones and the Secret Formula. My 12 year old son is 45% in and thinks it’s really good… “even though I normally don’t like fiction with girls, Mom.” I started it as well and it’s great – the writing is sound and you have to love books with strong female characters.

Here’s a recap:

One Girl. One Accident. One Incredible Superhero.

Cassidy Jones is your typical fourteen-year-old– that is, until a seemingly harmless accident in the laboratory of a world-renowned geneticist turns her world upside down.

Discovering incredible strength, speed, and enhanced physical senses that defy logic, Cassidy embarks on an action-packed adventure that has her fighting for answers…and for her very life.

And some great reviews:

“Brimful of danger, secrets, a bit of romance and fun, this debut author’s entertaining plot and well-drawn characters not only is all it promises to be, but will leave readers looking for more..” — Gail Welborn, Examiner.com

“Elise Stokes ranks up there with other YA masterminds!” — Kitty Bullard, Great Minds Think Aloud
