As a renowned Drak Rider, Rhiannon Elers and her dragon, Iberax, fly all over Ilrion exploring what she never got to see when executing quests for her Master. All of a sudden, that new-found freedom is pulled out from beneath her. Now on a mission for the king she has to find the Orb of Egregious in the forbidden Dark Lands. Not only will she be traveling all across Ilrion for this orb, but she has to do it with Darrin Hallacre – a fellow Drak Rider and the king’s pet. He is as charming and handsome as he is mysterious, and Rhiannon’s heart and mind is put to the ultimate test. And just when Rhiannon thought she knew everything, a shocking truth forces her to take a step back and question everything, even herself. Rhiannon will endure a quest that will not only alter her life forever, but prove that a will of steel is what she needs to survive.
I’ve been playing this visual novel game for the past few weeks. It’s free to play, but if you’re sucker you’ll pay for more of the little perks and to read more. After a few weeks of guffawing and rolling my eyes, I posted my review on the app store — although I haven’t actually seen it pop up yet.
For those who don’t know, Wattpad sensation’s Sally Slater’s debut fantasy novel Paladin is on sale on Kindle store for 99c/99p!
It’s one of the first books I read on Wattpad and I fell head over heels in love with it. Kickass heroine with genderbendering confusion and a smattering of demons, guts, and action makes this a must-read.
This is the second of Monica’s books I’ve read so far, with the first being “A Witchling’s Rites” (first draft and continuing on Wattpad) and I loved it from start to finish. It follows the tale of young Leanna Weston, a girl with heart problems that rendered her disabled – physically and emotionally, the latter as a result of her family’s over-protectiveness – seeking an escape when she is forced into an arranged marriage. She’s heard the wonders of Finvarra’s circus from her mother when she was alive, and coincidentally that circus was coming to town, and was to be Leanna’s salvation.
This story — it left me reeling and breathless. I don’t cry over books (unless it involves dogs, generally — “Marley and Me” remains the only one so far) but finishing this book left me with an ache in the chest that’s both exhilaration and devastation I only ever see in a truly wonderful book.
