About 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?
Dragons, you say? Count me in! This sounds like a great read for lovers of epic fantasy series like LOTR.
She lives with her family in regional Victoria, Australia, and works as a chef. In her quieter moments, she loves to indulge her passion for storytelling, basking in the joy that comes from creating vibrant characters, fantastical worlds and all manner of magical creatures. Dragons and elves, mages and warriors, troubled princes and beautiful princesses, romance, magic, and adventure can all be found in her writing.
I like the colour of the sky above the mountains giving a stormy, ominous feel and the tantalising glimpse of a dragon in the background. The ancient-looking font is also a good choice. The cover models are beautiful-the girl reminds me of Amy Adams. The main female character, Sairalindë, is a mage and it looks like she has the ability to conjure fire, which is pretty awesome. The glowing dagger that Flintathriël holds is intriguing and he looks really determined to fight and protect her.
