Hello Blogging Lovelies!!!!
I am excited today to have the wonderful Kendra E. Ardnek here for a cover reveal and guys! The cover is GORGEOUS!!
But first…a bit about this book. We have AN EXCLUSIVE SNIPPER just for my bloggers here.
“Not at all,” said Nadilynn. “Speaking of which, Adrian’s brother – is he spoken for?”
“Well, there are several girls in the village who have their eye on Jerolin,” Christa admitted. “But he is always rather … preoccupied. I doubt he even realizes that he has admirers. Why?”
“Yes, Nadi,” said Obsidia, glancing back towards them. “Why?”
“No reason,” was Nadilynn’s sing-song answer.
“Nadi.” Obsidia slid a warning edge into her voice. Nadilynn was a girl of notions, and it was clear that she was entertaining one now.
“Oh, Sidi, you just wouldn’t understand.” Nadilynn gave another melodramatic sigh. “Not you. You’re calm and collected and keep your nose clean. Everyone loves you. You can’t possibly understand the desire to do something scandalous.”
Are you getting curious?
I hope so…before I reveal more, I had the opportunity to ask the wonderful Kendra a few questions about her lovely writing.
What inspired you to start writing?
The discovery that that was how books came into being and it was the socially acceptable thing to do with the stories in your head. You know, as opposed to kidnapping people and forcing them to act out your stories for you.
What is your favorite thing about this story?
I’m about ten thousand percent in love with this story, and I’m just in awe as to how it came together – plot, theme, characters, all beautiful.
But I suppose if I have to pick one thing, it’s that I got to write about Amber and Granite before she went evil and he went mopey. It was awesome. And so weird to refer to him as king, because he’d rejected the title by the time Rizkaland happened.
Your favorite way to hunt up story inspiration.
Pinterest, hands down. Also my favorite way to lose hours on end.
Also, make sure you check out her awesome pinterest board! We got an awesome pin to peek at.
Are you FINALLY READY FOR THE COVER?
ARE YOU SURE???
HERE IT COMES!!!!!
Princess Obsidia’s father was killed the night she was born. Since there was no male heir, the crown went to the man who killed him, by Dialcian law. This never bothered her, growing up, and when it comes time for Obsidia to choose her husband, she chooses Prince Delaney, the son of that man, with little hesitation. Only then does her life start crumbling around her.
Adrian expected to live a normal life, taking his father’s place at the print shop when his father retired. But, on his eighteenth birthday, when the princess’ engagement is announced, his world is ripped out from under him when he learns that his life was a ruse, and he is the twin brother to the princess – and expected to take back his father’s throne.
Delaney knows that his country is hovering on the brink of war – and that his father may harbor murderous intentions towards his intended bride due to her Zovordian blood. He wants nothing more than to protect Obsidia and his people, but as merely prince, he has little power against his father.
The ancient war between the Dragons and the Immortal King and Queen is nearing its climax, and the three are already caught in it.
