I’m venturing into the unknown in more than one aspect. Firstly, I’ve never taken part in a Blog Tour before. And secondly, this type of book (genre-wise, or rather sub-genre-wise) is totally new to me.
My two cents’ worth: As I said, I’ve never read a book where the characters are elves and dragon riders. In fact, other than The Hobbit, I’ve never read a dragon book before. So, to be very honest, I needed to “get into” this new world that has been crafted. Had to really focus on the descriptions in order to visualize the characters. But, I enjoyed that. Something new. Once I’d managed to sort out who was who and form the elven world in my mind, I quite enjoyed this novella. A quick read perfect for me with limited time on my hands at the moment.
The numbers: I’d give this a rating of 3 out of 5 points (or 6 out of 10 😉 ) but that’s probably purely because this world that has been created is totally new to me.
The Genre: Fantasy/ Adventure/ Romance
Novella Release Date: August 9, 2017
The bit on the back of the book: Trained as an elite warrior from childhood, the elven crown prince Flintathriël fights to bring a stop to a war that began before he was born. With the aid of his betrothed Sairalindë, a skilled mage and dragon rider in her own right, they must find the Book of Souls – an ancient and mysterious tome rumored to have belonged to the god Hath’Raal.
When the missing book turns up in the hands of Mnuvae, the bastard child of the dead king, Flintathriël finds himself fighting to not only save his people from this new threat but also trying to keep Sairalindë safe when Mnuvae takes over the dragons in her attempt to win back the kingdom she believes is rightfully hers.
The love Flintathriël and Sairalindë share shines pure and true, but when the smoke of the battle clears, will their hearts survive the aftermath of war or will their love become a casualty that cannot be revived?
