Happy Black Friday everyone! Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving with your friends and family. I think it might be my favorite holiday… it’s the most relaxing—except for whoever has to cook. And it’s nice to have a tradition that really asks you to put into perspective all the things that you have to be thankful for.
We have something to be thankful for today. E.J. Willis is a storyteller that you should keep your eye on, because there is no doubt that she’s going to be rising to the top of the fantasy genre soon. Her Tales from Falyncia series was released earlier this year to glowing reviews, and it’s easy to see why. Battle for the Throne, the first book in the series, brings together all the ingredients to make a successful, entertaining read: well-written characters, intriguing sequences and little secrets that will have you yearning for more.
Alaina is determined to free the Kingdom of Falyncia from a tyrant’s rule. However, behind the tyrant lies an enemy more powerful than any mortal, and he will stop at nothing to keep Alaina off the throne.
The sword quivers in Alaina’s hand. With one final stroke, she can slay the gladiator, win back her kingdom… and lose the trust of her people forever.
The Kingdom of Falyncia is caught in a battle between a guardian spirit and powerful demon, and Alaina barely escapes with her life. Yet she vows to one day claim the throne. When she finally returns home, the enemy has her in his grasp. Now she must choose between freedom and staying true to her people. If she fails to kill the gladiator, torture awaits. Can she find the courage to face it? Or will the demon triumph again?
Battle for the Throne is a book that you’ll speed through as you move from one sequence to the next. Though you’ll no doubt be left wanting more, you don’t need to fret, as more tales from the world of Falyncia are on the way. Be sure to pick up Battle for the Throne now while it’s only 99 cents on Amazon, a deal that ends December 1st!
