Blade and Soul Blog Tour // Excerpt + Giveaway! (INTL)

Welcome to my stop of the Blade and Soul tour! I will be sharing an excerpt of the book with you! There is also an INTERNATIONAL (woop woop!) giveaway at the end of this post! Enjoy! 🙂

Blade and Soul by C.M. Estopare
Publication date: June 30th 2017
Genre: Adult, Fantasy

To defy gods, she will sacrifice all.

After the death of its duchess, Safrana is in turmoil. Two equally powerful families vie for power, quickly turning the beautiful citadels of Safrana into a hellish warscape. While, on the outside, there is a desperate search for the one true heir to the throne. The one man who could stop an encroaching civil war and force the citadels into peace.

But he is no where to be found. Presumed dead. While a threatening war looms over Safrana, promising to tear it apart.

Thrust into a political world which only buys and sells in blood money, with an impending civil war at hand, Marceline Brandy is called to take charge of a peace effort in a foreign city. But nothing is certain in this world rife with political strife. Everything must be questioned, even a push for peace.

Desperate to complete her mission, Marceline soon finds herself tangled up in the strange political affairs of an arrogant woman with dangerous ties to the long lost heir of the Safranian throne. But there is another, more powerful presence that lurks on the borders of Safrana’s imploding government. A presence that would stop at nothing to see Marceline and her allies fail.

Seized by a foreign city she is sworn to save, she has few to turn to for help. The list of allies she could count on is cut short by corrupt patriotists hungry for war and livid at the mere notion of foreign driven peace. Months pass as Marceline heads this peace effort, but the fiercer she works the more dire the situation becomes and time is running out.

A war looms, one that promises to destroy Safrana, as mythological creatures rise from ancient graves. The fiends intent on absolute destruction.

Is this an all-out test of Marceline’s strength and will?

Or, are the gods themselves against her?

Review: The Alchemists of Loom by Elise Kova – FANTASTIC AND SO UNDERRATED

Her vengeance. His vision.

Ari lost everything she once loved when the Five Guilds’ resistance fell to the Dragon King. Now, she uses her unparalleled gift for clockwork machinery in tandem with notoriously unscrupulous morals to contribute to a thriving underground organ market. There isn’t a place on Loom that is secure from the engineer turned thief, and her magical talents are sold to the highest bidder as long as the job defies their Dragon oppressors.

Cvareh would do anything to see his sister usurp the Dragon King and sit on the throne. His family’s house has endured the shame of being the lowest rung in the Dragons’ society for far too long. The Alchemist Guild, down on Loom, may just hold the key to putting his kin in power, if Cvareh can get to them before the Dragon King’s assassins.

When Ari stumbles upon a wounded Cvareh, she sees an opportunity to slaughter an enemy and make a profit off his corpse. But the Dragon sees an opportunity to navigate Loom with the best person to get him where he wants to go.

He offers her the one thing Ari can’t refuse: A wish of her greatest desire, if she brings him to the Alchemists of Loom.“

Summer Mini Bloggiesta 2017

At the beginning of this year and when I’ve only just started blogging, I participated in the Spring Bloggiesta! It was sooooo much fun and I felt a great sense of accomplishment afterwards so I thought I’d participate again!

“Bloggiesta is a blogging marathon revolving around ticking off those items on your to-do list and improving your blog while in the good company of other awesome bloggers doing the same thing.”

This time, it’s just a little Mini-Bloggiesta that takes place over the weekend (June 17-18) instead of the entire week! Still, I have no plans for this weekend and therefore I’m hoping to accomplish a lot of things blog-related!

So, all you gotta do is write your very own to-do list and post it to your blog. It doesn’t matter how long or short it is, it’s your blog after all!

My Summer Mini-Bloggiesta goals:

  • participate in the Twitter chat (Saturday June 17, 2pm EST)
  • pre-write 2 discussion posts
  • write Loom review
  • write One S’More Summer review
  • sort Review Archive by author/name/rating
  • maybe get some dividers???? I DON’T KNOW YET

I think that’s it for now! I’ll only have the weekend after all and I also want to get some reading done!

If you want to participate in the Summer mini-Bloggiesta as well, head over to Bloggiesta.com for the official rules and to get inspiration for your own To-Do list! You can sign-up for it HERE!

Happy Bloggiesta and good luck on getting things done!
