Blog Tour & MY REVIEW: Two Thousand Years by M. Dalto

Two Thousand Years
M. Dalto
(The Empire Saga #1)
Publication date: December 11th 2018
Genres: Fantasy, New Adult

Two thousand years ago, the Prophecy of Fire and Light foretold the coming of the Queen Empress who would lead the Empire into a time of peace and tranquility. But instead of the coming of a prosperous world, a forbidden love for the Empress waged a war that ravaged the land, creating a chasm between the factions, raising the death toll of innocent lives until the final, bloody battle.

Centuries later, Alexandra, a twenty-two-year-old barista living in Boston, is taken to an unfamiliar realm of mystery and magic where her life is threatened by Reylor, its banished Lord Steward. She crosses paths with Treyan, the arrogant and seductive Crown Prince of the Empire, and together they discover how their lives, and their love, are so intricately intertwined by a Prophecy set in motion so many years ago.

Alex, now the predestined Queen Empress Alexstrayna, whose arrival was foretold by the Annals of the Empire, controls the fate of her new home as war rages between the Crown Prince and Lord Steward. Either choice could tear her world apart as she attempts to keep the Empire’s torrid history from repeating itself. In a realm where betrayal and revenge will be as crucial to her survival as love and honor, Alex must discover whether it is her choice – or her fate – that determines how she survives the Empire’s rising conflicts.

MY REVIEW

I have to start off my review by saying “Bravo, Bravo M. Dalto” this is a wonderful start to what could be an amazing series!!! I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK!!!

I am still swooning over Treyan and Alexstrayna!!! The way the prophecy brought them together. They instinctively felt right with each other, and their attraction to each other felt natural and right. The prophecy was right, they belonged together. I loved that. Although Alex was very headstrong, but i guess she would have to be. After all, she would be Empress…right?

The character growth in this story is so believable, especially with the main characters. But even some of the side characters growth, it’s just so well written. Then you have Treyan’s twin brother, Reylor, he is written so well. But he is written in such a way he still has me wondering what truly goes on in his heart and his head. The dialogue is just so well written that it helps give these characters the depth they need.

If you enjoy fantasy and swoon worthy romance….LOOK NO FURTHER!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS!! Definitely giving it 5++ Stars!!! 💙💙💙🖤❤️

Cover Reveal: August Prather Is Not Dead Yet by Danielle K. Roux

C1BFD551-8EC3-4439-A9EA-661CD449CB51August Prather Is Not Dead Yet

Publisher: Parliament House Press

Katherine Garnet is a writer who has never cared much about much, making it awfully difficult to create new content. Despite the fact she has the “edge” of being trans (according to her cis male editor) she is not looking to capitalize on her own personal story. Garnet tries to sneak a peek at her rival, August Prather’s, latest fantasy manuscript about a quest for the elixir of life. While reading, Garnet gets accidently dragged into a bizarre cross-country road trip that may or may not have a purpose and begins to see parallels in the story of the manuscript and the reality of their journey. Along the way, they encounter a parade of equally troubled individuals, including ghost-hunting priests, a robot magician, a discarded piece of furniture, a runaway teenager, and a Japanese rock star. As Garnet confronts her past, she begins to understand why someone might want to live forever.

Danielle K. Roux is a writer, teacher, and historian. She has a BFA in Architectural History from the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), an MA in Architectural History from the University of Virginia, and an MS in Elementary Educational Studies from Johns Hopkins University. Danielle has always loved reading and telling stories – especially stories with adventure, mystery, humor and at least a little bit of spookiness. While living in Savannah, she worked as a ghost tour guide which meant she got paid to tell local history and lore to people and walk around at night looking at cemeteries and gorgeous old buildings that were probably haunted.

Danielle has been writing fiction since she was nine, after getting tired of reading from the perspective of white, straight male characters in fantasy novels. Her first written story involved a group of middle school girls who find necklaces used by a dead witch that give them supernatural powers. It was written in notebooks in purple and green gel pens and may or may not still exist. She is inspired by travelling to new places and reading about the stories tied to the landscape. She has at least three novels building in her brain (or wherever novels come from) and wishes she was writing them all right now….

Danielle lives with her wife and loud, orange tabby cat in Baltimore but dreams of places with mountains and cool air. Her bookshelves are full of true crime, ghost stories, architecture books, graphic novels, and the Harry Potter series. Her favorite book she has read in the past year is H is for Hawk because it combines biography, history and memoir. Now she really wants to learn falconry. Her dream library would be accessed through a secret door and look something like the library in the animated Disney Beauty and the Beast, although it would also have a cute barista or sentient coffee machine that once was said barista.

When she isn’t writing or thinking about writing, Danielle is building houses in the Sims, listening to podcasts, or taking Buzzfeed quizzes to find out what kind of salad she is based on her birth month. She is constantly re-watching Arrested Development, Murder She Wrote, Doctor Who, Archer and Sherlock. She is also a big fan of Orange is the New Black even though they killed her favorite character and Game of Thrones even though they will probably kill all her favorite characters. In an ideal world, she would go outside more and walk around, but there are bugs out there and nature makes her sneeze. She wishes she could learn to knit, grow a garden, and make her own cheese but there are only so many hours in the day. She is a Slytherin but usually feels like a Ravenclaw. She likes red wine and coffee but not at the same time. Her favorite pizza is pizza made in a brick oven with fresh mozzarella.

Alice lives and works in the North East of England with her partner and slightly ferocious cats! Alice has always enjoyed writing from being a child when she used to carry notebooks and write stories no matter where she went. Nothing much has changed and she writes all manner of fiction with a tendency to lean towards the dark side. Most of her work is rooted in darkness, her inspiration coming from a macabre selection of reads as well as the dreams that frequent her sleep.

Her debut novel, The Doors, was released three years ago and her next novel release, A Shadowed Beginning, the first part in a series of seven, was released in autumn. Several of her short stories have been included in anthologies with various presses and she is always working on more. When she’s not writing, she always has a book in her hand and will read from whatever genre suits her that day.

Publisher
: Parliament House Press

From Amazon bestselling author, Beaird Glover, comes this dystopian dose of dark humor and far-flung science fiction.

In a future where violence is encouraged and duels are required by law, Dathin Long has the answer: devolution. He proposes a medical procedure that will restore humanity to the state of primal bliss—to pure reptilian instinct, before guilty consciences intruded.

When a boy’s grandmother is admitted to the hospital for pneumonia, he learns the procedure will be forced upon her. To save her, the boy enlists the help of Lee Bellows, a member of the hospital staff, to search the records and find his grandmother. But the deeper Lee looks, the more horrible things he finds, until the controllers start looking back at him. His conscience needs adjusting, and soon the procedure may be forced upon him.

In a flooded New Orleans in the end days, the only hope is a hero who’s lost his memory and is just trying to get by…

Publisher: Parliament House Press

GOODREADS

Every Christmas Eve, the Stahlbaum family hosts the most lavish Christmas party in St. Petersburg. For Clara Stahlbaum, it’s an end to a chapter of her life and a beginning of another. Her father wishes for her to marry Viscount Yakov Petryaey, a well-admired member of the Russian court.  

When her Great Uncle Drosselmeyer arrives for the party, he brings his handsome, Anton Vasiliev, and Clara’s old childhood toy—the Nutcracker. The return of this relic causes her to remember the magical dream she shared with it as a child, swept away to an enchanted world of the land of sweets and meeting the delightful friends of the Nutcracker Prince. As the magic begins to unfold again, her Nutcracker comes to life and they are faced to fight the lurking Mouse King and his followers. Escaping once more into the realm of WinterDream, the Nutcracker Prince reveals that the world is under a curse, and the Mouse King is determined to have WinterDream for himself. The Prince must break his own curse to win back his kingdom, which can only be achieved by falling in love with a human girl. They travel to his castle in hopes to gain the help of the Sugar Plum Fairy, Irina, in defeating the evil coming their way. 

Yet, the more time she spends in WinterDream, the more Clara discovers the Mouse King is not who he seems to be…and neither is anyone else. Clara must help take back WinterDream from the rolling darkness, and must save the Nutcracker Prince before he transforms back into his original wooden state.

It’s the one place no rustler ever wants to end up.

Having survived Rondo’s destruction, sixteen-year-old Rags has been taken captive by the Kingdom and sentenced to ‘rehabilitation’ at the Kingdom’s Threshing Floor, a notorious prison camp for hardened criminals.Those who refuse to serve the Kingdom go in…no one comes out.

Faced with this nightmarish reality, Rags is forced to use everything she knows as a rustler to survive against starvation, a cruel ward master, and torture at the hands of the Kingdom’s ruler, Hyperion. Given only two options—death, or conformation to the Kingdom’s ways—she’s forced to play the Kingdom’s twisted game.

With the help of the Kingdom’s second-in-command, Henrick Oreson, and its charismatic luresman, Colton Caelan Fieldson, Rags must find a way to play a convincingly false role she was never meant to play and show the Kingdom she can be ‘rehabilitated’ to its standards. But with the deciding evaluation rigged in the Kingdom’s favor, failure is imminent…unless she can find a way to turn lies into truth and achieve the impossible: actually, escape the Threshing Floor.

Kathryn Lee Martin, known as ‘Ryn’ by friends and colleagues, spends her days saddling up the literary horse and hitting the “what if” trails on a quest to tell the outlaws’ and underdogs’ stories. Not one to shy away from the darker side of stories for the older young adult audience, her works often explore impossible odds and dire futures, falling into a fusion of post-apocalyptic science fiction meets the gritty lawlessness of the old west with a dash of fantasy and steampunk. Putting her unfortunate characters in situations where faith and fighting often go hand in hand, she’s not afraid to make things difficult for them and when she’s not corrupting society on paper, she’s usually leading the rebellion to save it. 

An avid outdoors woman at heart, Kathryn spends her days living a quiet, faith-filled life on her family’s small farmstead where she can usually be found working in her vegetable garden, spending time with her family, and playing the role of ‘critter mom’ to a border collie, several cats, three goats, and a donkey. Prior to choosing to follow her dream of becoming an author, she spent almost a decade joyfully working at a small town, local gourd farm as a parts maker, part of the finishing department, and a proud member of its seasonal field crew.
