Fantasy & Sci-Fi For Christmas: Armor of Aletheia by Ralene Burke

On tour with Prism Book Tours

Armor of Aletheia
(Sacred Armor Trilogy #1)
By Ralene Burke
YA Fantasy, Christian
Paperback & ebook, 268 Pages
August 29th 2018 by Elk Lake Publishing Inc.

The death of her king changes Karina’s life forever. Fleeing the royal house, she must leave her life behind to seek out the Armor of the Creator—to save the very people who now hunt her.

Faramos, the evil warlock waiting to unleash hell, knows the Creator has already chosen his warrior, so he sends his bounty hunter to retrieve her. After Tristan abducts her, he witnesses Karina’s gentle nature and strong independence, and he finds he can’t complete his assignment.

Together, they set out to retrieve the armor and defeat the hordes of creatures sent to destroy them. But is Tristan’s heart secure as he faces certain death for defending the queen? And will Karina have the courage to become all the Creator intends her to be? Failure will condemn the world to eternal darkness.

Excerpt

The bridge was gone.

Karina sat down on a rock at the edge of the Continental River. She was tired. And sore. And now this. “What do we do?”

Tristan squatted by the riverbank, staring at the other side. He tilted his face toward the mid-afternoon sun. “River’s shallow enough here to cross without a bridge.”

“But the water’s freezing!”

He shrugged. “We can take off our shoes and stockings. You can also remove whatever clothes you’d like to keep dry.”

She scowled, not bothering to respond—especially when he smirked. “When we’re on the other side, our footwear will be dry, and the stockings will warm our feet quickly.”

He couldn’t be serious, could he?

“It will not be that bad, child.” Dom nuzzled her shoulder with his nose.

Tristan knelt to remove his shoes. Karina pursed her lips, biting back derisive comments. She was thankful for the warm sun. Back in Calliope, the snow would begin to melt as green grass poked through the winter-hardened earth. The Ice Plains never melted, though. The cold northern oceans kept the top iced over year-round.

She sighed as she unlaced her dusty boots. They tied their shoes together and slung them around their necks. Tristan grabbed Dom’s reins and then nodded to Karina. “Ready?”

“No.”

He stepped into the river. The rushing water only came up to his knees, which wasn’t too bad for him since he had rolled up his pant legs.

Karina looked down at her formfi­tting leather pants. No way to roll them up. She sucked in a breath of determination. Oh, well, they needed a good washing anyway. At the riverbank, she stuck a toe in the water, then yanked it back out. “It’s too cold!”

Tristan smirked. “You’ll live.”

She took a de­fiant step into the water. The cold seeped into her skin— like tiny needles stabbing her over and over. “If I make it out of this alive,” she muttered, “I’m sending the Aletheian army after you for making me do this.”

“What was that?” Tristan glanced over his shoulder.

“Nothing.” She slid one foot in front of the other. “Nothing at all. This is great. Really. I—”

Something slimy slid around her ankle—and wrenched her into the water.

Blog Tour and Giveaway: Succession by Brett Armstrong

About the Book


Book:
Succession

Author: Brett Armstrong

Genre: Christian Epic Fantasy

Release Date: October 6, 2020

Son of the Northern Realm’s Defender, raised among dwarfs of Ordumair, Meredoch was anticipated to succeed his father. Some whispered he would bring the longed-for peace between Ordumair and their ancient foe, Ecthelowall. All of that changes when Ordumair’s Thane is killed and Meredoch and his family are exiled. From prestige to poverty, the young boy must chart a new course.

As the years pass and the idol that was his father’s legacy tarnishes, Meredoch’s past resurfaces. An artifact of immeasurable worth to Ordumair is found. If recovered by the wrong hands, disaster would befall those Meredoch serves and cares about. Battling creatures believed only myths and racing against evil toward the prize, Meredoch must face the truth of his place in the world and claim his right of succession.

About the Author

From an early age, Brett Armstrong had a love for literature and history. At age nine, he combined the two for his first time in a short story set in the last days of the Aztec Empire. After that, writing’s role in his life waxed and waned periodically, always a dream on the horizon, till he reached college. At West Virginia University, he entered the Computer Engineering program and spent two years pursuing that degree before an opportunity to take a creative writing class, for fun, came along. It was so enjoyable, he took another and in that course he discovered two things. The first was the plot for a short story called Destitutio Quod Remissio, which the others students really seemed to love. The second, he realized he absolutely loved writing. For him, it was like the proverbial light bulb coming on. In the years since, describing that epiphany has been difficult for him, but he found the words of 1924 Olympian Eric Liddell are the most eloquent expression for it: “God made me fast. And when I run, I feel His pleasure.” God gave Brett a passion for writing, and so feels His pleasure when writing.

Brett lives in Saint Albans, West Virginia, with his beautiful wife, Shelly. In the summer the pair gardens together, and each day Brett continues writing his next novel.

More from Brett

The Lowlands are on the edge of dramatic changes. In every era, warriors for the High King must rise to keep the light burning and hold back the beasts of the darkness that most believe only myth. But those creatures of lore wait for the nightfall that will allow them to roam free and relish that complacency.

None of the protagonists in the Quest of Fire saga—Anargen, Jason, and, in Succession, Meredoch—realize how great a change is coming. Anargen is from a quiet, little town that has stood unchanged and insular for centuries. Jason has been running from a darkness in his past so long he only looks to his next step, never what’s coming ahead. Meredoch grew up with high hopes for his future, proud of his family’s legacy. In the course of the saga, each faces a moment when what they’d clung to and trusted in fails them. For Anargen it’s his quaint life, Jason self-absorption, and Meredoch his family pride. In losing those things, however, each gains something. The chance to join the ancient Quest of Fire on behalf of the High King of All Realms. There’s a passage in The Gathering Dark that sums it up nicely. “Life is filled with losses full of greater gains.”

What excites me to write and share the Quest of Fire saga is showing through sweeping epic fantasy the way these characters stand firm. Though not the only spiritual theme woven into the stories, both The Gathering Dark and Succession invite readers to journey with these characters to the brink, risking their lives, and find there the greatest gain.

 But I consider my life of no value to myself; my purpose is to finish my course and the ministry I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of God’s grace. —Acts 20:24

My Review

Succession is the second installment from the Quest of Fire series by 

Brett Armstrong. It is, also, my first book I have read by this author. Even though this is part of a series, I believe it can be read as a stand alone. I thought this was a good read. I am not a huge fan of the fantasy genre. But this one gives me a good reason as to why I should go outside my comfort zone from time to time. This story involves a lot of journey, adventure and danger. I did not find that it was predictable and made me constantly wondering would happen on the following scenes. 

Succession is getting four stars from me. I would be interested in reading the first book from the Quest of Fire series, Gathering of Dark to see what happened previously. I recommend this one for readers who enjoy clean fantasy.  

I received Succession from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.

Genre:  Poetry

Book Description:
 
Having written numerous works of nonfiction, this is Lee Hudspeth’s debut book of poetry.

From the sublime shores of the Mediterranean to the majestic expansiveness of deep space, this book contemplates nostalgia, perspective and the gift of love. Through five short yet powerful, thought-provoking chapters of contemporary poems—and a dash of elegant, evocative haiku—Hudspeth takes his readers on a journey across the inner landscape of struggle, triumph, self-realization and imagination.

Guest Post:

When it comes to the marketing process, keeping track of my different marketing campaigns and ideas is easiest, because I enjoy making lists and analyzing data. However, marketing a book is a challenging, time-consuming process that’s quite different from the process of creative writing. Also, depending on your personality and comfort level, it can sometimes be daunting to promote one’s own work. I suggest that you side-step your Inner Critic and go for it. Your readers are looking forward to meeting you.

How easy (or hard) were these aspects of releasing a book for you: writing, designing, publishing and marketing?

Of the writing process, composing the poems was easiest for me. The hardest part was putting the poems into a cohesive order with a narrative; this involved writing the Preface, Chapter Prologues and the Afterword (Author’s Comments). Oh, and writing the book’s back cover blurb was incredibly difficult. I wrote four different blurbs, didn’t like any of them, started to come unglued, then asked my editor to write one. I liked his blurb and that’s the one that made it to the back cover.

During the design process, choosing the cover art was easiest. The book design company 1106 Design was a pleasure to work with too, so that made things go very smoothly. The hardest part was waiting between revision cycles. The designer was efficient and punctual so the challenge was for me to take care of myself during the emotional roller coaster while designing my book. You have to be patient and remember to breathe.

Regarding the publishing process, which I also refer to as distribution, I chose to “go wide” for this book. Meaning, to have Amazon offer my book for sale in print-on-demand (paperback and hardcover) and as a Kindle eBook, while also allowing non-Amazon platforms to sell my book: Barnes & Noble, Apple and Kobo, among others; in my case, these non-Amazon platforms distribute via IngramSpark.

 My Review: 

This is the Earth is a good book for younger readers by Deedee Cummings. It was so cute and sweet that made my own young ones stay captivated from start to finish. I was just as entertained as they were and enjoyed teaching them some valuable lessons that was within the pages of the book. The lessons are some that all readers – young and old – could learn from. Just because we are all different, we all can still live in this beautiful world together in peace. How beautiful is that? 

I really enjoyed the illustrations in This is the Earth. Charlene Mosley’s talent shines through in her pictures throughout the book. They followed the story perfectly. The pages were so beautiful and vibrant that would catch any young reader’s eye. I adored the colorful pictures on every single page.

This is the Earth is getting a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for young readers of all ages. I will be proudly donating my copy of this book to my son’s elementary school library. I know the librarian and teachers will be thankful and excited to share this story with their younger students. I know they will enjoy this story as much as my family did. We will be looking for more books by Deedee Cummings in the future.

I received This is the Earth from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
