Dracian Legacy by Priya Kanaparti - Blog Tour and Giveaway!

Dracian Legacy (Dracian #1)
by Priya Kanaparti
ISBN:  9781480138254
Publication Date: February 14, 2013
Format: ebook

Synopsis: Ren and Axel are caught between two powerful magical races: one destined to end the bloodshed, the other out for vengeance.

Seventeen-year-old Ren Pernell is prophesied to end the war between the Dracians and the Telalians. So when a Dracian, Axel Knight, is sent to find and bring back the prophesied one before she turns eighteen and Telalians discover of her existence, unexpected sparks start to fly between the two. Once Ren finds the truth behind Axel’s arrival, she wants everything to do with him and nothing to do with his mission.

Things prove to become difficult as Ren’s life is constantly threatened by the Goarders, humans who sold their souls, a Proxy Succubi, and the leader of the Telalians, who has been searching for her as well.

With the clock ticking and Ren’s life in jeopardy, it is no longer just a mission for Axel. It becomes a personal endeavor to save the only one he’s ever loved. In a heart-racing ending, they must find a way to evade the preordained war that won’t also end Ren’s life.

Hold on to your socks, ‘cause you are gonna love this one! If you’re looking for something new, something besides vampires and werewolves and zombies, well, here ya go.

Okay, I’ve noticed some people aren’t impressed with the female main character. What do I think? Ren is a girl. Sometimes girls are a little whiney. Sometimes we’re a little weak. Every girl can’t bust out the Wonder Woman costume and save the world at the snap of her fingers. So, to me, Ren is believable. She’s scared, she’s torn, she’s moody, and what I really like—she’s funny. She’s exactly the kind of sarcastic that I love. She’s real.

All of the characters are real, even with some out of this world characteristics. I was drawn into each and every one of their lives right from the start. The story is unique and interesting and the plot develops nicely, with a great balance of back-story, romance, suspense, and action. And, yes, you end on a bit of a cliffhanger, which WILL leave you wanting more. I just think that’s a telltale sign of a great book. As frustrating as it may be, you just can’t wait for the next in the series!

Give it a try! You won’t be disappointed.

Fantastic job, Priya! Congratulations!

Cover Reveal: Beneath by Cambria Hebert

Cover design by Regina Wamba at Mae I Design

Beneath (Heven and Hell #3.5)
by Cambria Hebert
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal/Fantasy
Release Date: March 29, 2013
Format: Ebook only

Where I came from everything is perfect. Everything is beautiful and predictable. Life isn’t measured by days, but by infinite joy that never ends.

But it did.

When I fell in love with a man who was perfectly imperfect.
The price for forbidden affection was steep and my beautiful white wings withered and died around me.

I was fallen. I am fallen.

Years have passed, and I’ve learned the true meaning of time. I’ve learned to build a wall around myself and exist alone. Yet, when he looks at me… the heart beneath my armor trembles.

But I must remember.

I must remember that I might not have anything left to lose, but he certainly does. And risking him is something I won’t do. So I lock my feelings where they belong.
