DESTINY’S RULE: AWAKENING

Earth Dragon

Earth Dragon (Photo credit: jaci XIII)

Here is something I am working on. I thought I would post it and get your opinion. It is a fantasy novel, with magic and dragons. I am still working things out with the story and the world building, so be patient with me.

CHAPTER 1

“ SHARRA, WATCH YOUR BACK!”

 Sharra glances over her shoulder and sees two enforcers closing in on her. Notching an arrow in her bow Sharra aims at the closest enforcer, before the arrow finds it’s mark she has a second one ready and lets it loose to kill the second enforcer.

 “Callum, where are Mother and Father?” she yells to be heard above the noise.

 “They were heading for the caves.”  Callum replies over his shoulder, as he was fighting with an enforcer.

 “ Why are we being attacked?”

 “Apparently they are searching every village for a girl who can do magic.” he blocks an attack.

 “ Why are they doing this?” she sweeps the legs out from under her attacker and slashes at his belly.

 “ You remember the prophecy of The Lost Kingdom?”

 “Yes, but that is only a tale told by the Elders.”

 “Apparently , Veldahar takes it seriously.”

 Sharra looks out at the village, seeing the death and destruction of her people.  Homes burning, family and friends dead, because of one mans greed. Shaking off the feeling of fear, Sharra starts to slowly work her way through the hoard of enforcers.

 “Callum, the village is lost.  I’ll meet you at the gathering place with any survivors.”

 “ Be careful Sharra who’s to say that you are not the one they are looking for.”  Callum looks at her with a smile on his face.

 “Yeah, right .  I am not the one true ruler, that will bring peace to the land.”

 “ Just be careful. I don’t want to lose you.”

 Sharra hugs her brother and runs off searching for any survivors.  Hearing the cries of those she is unable to help.

“ Sharra dear.”

 Sharra stops and listens, trying to figure out where the voice came from.  For there was no one around. “ I must be going crazy.” Sharra mumbles to herself.

“ No dear, you are not going crazy.”

 “If I am not going crazy, then why am I talking to a voice in my head?”

 “Because dear, you can not see us yet.”

 “Us?” Sharra shakes her head in disbelief, still not sure that she is not going crazy.

 “Yes dear, us. The Elders of the Lost Kingdom.”

 “That is just a myth.” Sharra circles around a boulder to avoid detection from any enforcers.

 “No, we are not a myth. We are very much a reality.”

 “If the Lost Kingdom is true, then who are they trying to find?”

“Why you dear.”

“Me.” Sharra asks in disbelief.

 “Yes, You. For you are the true ruler of the Lost Kingdom.” The voice replies.

 “This can not be, for I do not know any magic.”

 “Yes, you do. How else could we be talking to you.”

REVIEW FOR DAKOTA BANKS “DELIVERANCE”

Product Details

Book Description

Publication Date:March 27, 2012

Kill . . . or be damned.

A demon’s assassin for centuries, Maliha Crayne has gone rogue, determined to save a life for every one she’s destroyed in order to free herself from an eternity of enslavement, damnation, and excruciating torment. But as the powers that sustained her in the past fade, she is wary of trusting those closest to her—especially her lover, Jake. And her closest friends are beginning to disappear, one by one. Amid her anger, suspicion, and sorrow, her life is spiraling out of control.

Worse still, a beautiful Renaissance murderess is recruiting Maliha as her new assassin. Maliha is turning into a lethal puppet with an evil Immortal pulling the strings, forced to kill innocents or see her missing friends die horribly. Suddenly trapped in a moral no-man’s-land, Maliha is damned if she does and damned if she doesn’t . . . and time is rapidly running out.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTESEY OF AMAZON

I love this third installment in this series. The character and story line are great. When Mahila’s friends are being threatened she must become the assassin she was to get rid of the threat. Will her friends forgive her for not letting them help her find Yanmeng, or will they turn their back on her. This is a great series, and I cannot wait for the next installment in this series. I recommend that you try it today. I give this book 5/5 stars.

Here are all the books in the series. Mortal Path

BOOK REVIEW FOR “BLOODRING” BY FAITH HUNTER

Product Details

In a novel filled with lush imagery and exhilarating action, Faith Hunter creates a near-future world caught in the throes of an ambiguous apocalypse – where a woman with everything to hide finds her true destiny revealed. As humanity struggles with religious strife and seraphs and demons fight a never-ending battle, a new species has arisen. “Neomages” are human in appearance, but able to twist left-over creation energy to their will. A threat to both humans and seraphs, they are confined in luxurious Enclaves.Thorn St. Croix is no ordinary neomage. Nearly driven insane by her powers, she is smuggled out of an Enclave and now lives among humans, channeling her gift of stone-magery into jewelry making. But when Thaddeus Bartholomew, a dangerously attractive policeman, tells her that her ex-husband has been kidnapped, Thorn risks revealing her identity to find him. And for Thorn, the punishment for revelation is death.

BOOK DESCRIPTION COURTOSY OF AMAZON

This was the first series that I read of Faith Hunter and it is great. Her world building, and characters are just awesome. The character of Thorn was very well thought out. I enjoyed the story, because I have not at this time read anything like it. I recommend that you read this series. Due to her special abilities and unknown events,  Thorn had to leave her enclave and live in secret. If anyone found out that she was a rogue mage living amongst humans she would be killed, but when humans and mages are threatened. They have to fight together to rid the land of the threat or be totally erased from earth.

I loved the imagery in the book and the action. I gave it a 5/ 5 stars. here are the other books in the series.

REVIEW FOR “HOB’S BARGAIN” BY PATRICIA BRIGGS

Product DetailsBeauty and The Beast

Hated and feared, magic was banished from the land. But now, freed from the spells of the wicked bloodmages, magic-both good and evil-returns. And Aren of Fallbrook feels her own power of sight strengthen and grow…

Overcome by visions of mayhem and murder, Aren vows to save her village from the ruthless raiders who have descended upon it-and killed her family. With the return of wildlings to the hills and forests, she strikes a bargain with the Hob, a magical, human-like creature imbued with the power of the mountains. But the Hob is the last of his kind. And he will exact a heavy price to defend the village-a price Aren herself must pay…

Book Description Courtesy of Amazon

I was re-reading some of Patricia Briggs’  other books, and I picked up THE HOB’S BARGAIN. I remember when I first read it, that it really has you thinking, because it does not give you all the details you need in the first few chapters. Like many other novels where the author introduces the character and the task that the main character has to resolve. This one you have to piece together almost like a mystery novel, because you only get bits and pieces of the puzzle that you have to piece together. All-in-all I really loved the world building, the character development and the plot of the story. It is one I don’t mind reading over and over again.

The book centers around the two main characters Aren and Caefawn The hob, who is there to teach Aren how to use her magic. So she will be able to defend her village for what is to come. It is a book of self discovery, and the story is well-paced and the twists and turns are unpredictable. I highly recommend this book. So I give it a 5/5 stars.

The next book in the MERCY THOMPSON SERIES AVAILABLE MARCH 4, 2014.
