A New Book for the New Year

Blog Day 2 for Master of Lies (Chronicles of the Half-Emrys, #1)

Happy New Year! Want a great new book to start off your new year? Check out this one.

Welcome to day two of getting to know Master of Lies. If you missed day one, find it here. Five more to follow on a weekly basis. I will keep them short and sweet. Enjoy!

What type of Readers will like this book and why?
Master of Lies is written for a young adult audience. I find it suitable for ages 14 and up, only because there is a romantic element that I would not want younger readers to read. They don’t need to have romantic, gushy notions in their heads. It would only give them cuties. But the reading is engaging enough for all other ages.

It is a smooth read, with no excessive, “drawling” descriptions. (Here is where I say: If you like the LOTR, the Hobbit, and Eragon but would like a lighter read, you will like Master of Lies (Chronicles of the Half-Emrys, #1).)

My books share the same elements of magic and new worlds, as well as, elements of mystery, fun through rambunctious dragons, romantic tension, hope in the face of tragedy, desperation and longing to know who you are, revenge (can’t have a good story without revenge), and forgiveness.

Fantasy and romance readers will enjoy this novel. 

Check out the back cover blurb and see what you think:

Mastering the lies is easy if you don’t have to wrestle against your own darkness . . .

Unaware of her immortal heritage, the truth concealed from her, Ahnalyn learns she’s a child of two worlds—a half-Emrys with the ability to wield the light and the dark power. Aneirin, a Son of Light, has his own reasons for leaving the immortal dragon realm. Defying the High Council, he risks exile—risks being tainted by the corrupt mortal world Ahnalyn is a part of.

As Aneirin’s life becomes entwined with Ahnalyn’s future, he is certain of one thing: Ahnalyn belongs with the immortal Emrys. But doubt and fear shroud Ahnalyn as the painful truths of her past unfold. Succumbing to the darkness lurking inside her is the easy, simple path. But under the dark power, Ahnalyn would be forbidden to enter the immortal realm and would be lost to all those she loves—forever.

Master of Lies is the first book in the Chronicles of the Half-Emrys, a high fantasy novel.
