#Featured “Valerie (Eleven Wings Book 1)” by Brittni Chenelle

cover

~~~

To be fair, everyone was already dead when I got there.

My name is Valerie and I’m a traitor . . . At least, that’s what the Valkyries tell me when I arrive in purgatory. I can’t remember, so how the hell can I prove my innocence? In the meantime, the Valkyries are training me to help them keep the darkness at bay, but I’m pretty sure they got the wrong girl. You see, the darkness calls to me, and the closer I get to it, the more I suspect the Valkyries might be right about me. They’re watching closely—especially Jaemin. He’s hella sexy and taking this betrayal situation rather personally. Now I’m on a desperate mission to clear my name and prove that I’m the champion they need.

But the more I dig, the more I believe that the Valkyries are far from innocent. Each of the guardians of light hides a sinister secret of their own and I’m going to get to the bottom of it even if it brings hell down on us all.

Valerie is Episode 1 of Brittni Chenelle’s Serialized Eleven Wings Series—definitive proof that little books can host colossal stories. This is only 1 out of 6 episodes, meant to be binged. It is not novel-length. Expect cliffhangers!

Signatures in Stone

2014 Overall Winner DAPHNE DU MAURIER AWARD for excellence in Mystery Writing, also Winner in the Historical Mystery section of the Du Maurier Awards, from Romance Writers of America.

Seeking inspiration in the timeless Italian landscape, four unlikely misfits find their destinies entangled in the meanders of the mysterious sculpture garden of Bomarzo, peopled with freaks and monsters. Daphne, a writer with a hashish habit, Clive, American gigolo and aspiring artist, Nigel, an English aristocrat down at the heels, and Finestone, a fly by night art historian come together in a decrepit villa looked after by two Italian servants who are not what they seem. To find their heart’s desire, all the characters must descend into the depths of hell, but not everyone will make it out alive. In the hideous sculptures of Bomarzo, Daphne must face up the hidden sides of herself while solving the mystery of murder for which she is unjustly accused. She will discover that her own journey to hell has already been written sculpted by an unknown genius centuries ago in these signatures in stone.

The Soul of Place

In this engaging creative writing workbook, Linda Lappin, novelist, poet, and travel writer, presents a series of insightful exercises to help writers of all genres — (literary travel writing, memoir, poetry, fiction, creative nonfiction) discover imagery and inspiration in the places they love.

Lappin departs from the classical concept of the Genius Loci, the indwelling spirit residing in every landscape, house, city, or forest, to argue that by entering into contact with the unique energy and identity of a place, writers can access an inexhaustible source of creative power. The Soul of Place provides instruction on how to evoke that power.

The writing exercises are drawn from many fields such as architecture, painting, cuisine, literature and literary criticism, geography and deep maps, Jungian psychology, fairy tales, mythology,metaphysics,theater and performance art, all of which offer surprising perspectives on our writing and may help us uncover raw materials for fiction, essays, and poetry hidden in our environment.

An essential resource book for the writer’s library, this book is ideal for creative writing courses, with stimulating exercises adaptable to all genres. For writers or travelers about to set out on a trip abroad, The Soul of Place is the perfect road trip companion, attuning our senses to a deeper awareness of place.

“Insightful exercises help creative writers of all levels attune themselves to the power of place.” Amy Alippo, National Geographic Traveler

#Review “The Thief’s Betrayal” by Cassondra Benton

Fantasy Fiction

Date Published: February 4, 2019

4/5 stars!

Ironically, this fantasy begins with scenes mirroring current events.

Agitation, ambivalent leadership, and power struggles have led to civil unrest and rioting devastates a town. Arriving too late to intervene and save lives, Kingsman, the head of the King’s guard, blames himself for the carnage.

Finding Kira, a six-year-old girl orphaned by the riots, he takes the child and raises her as his own.

Fifteen years later, Kingsman has left the palace and leads the guild, a small band of thieves for hire. They take their profession seriously and train with military-like precision. And Kira is one of them. They are also her family and she will do anything to protect them.

Random murders begin to occur in the village and blame falls on the guild. Kira knows her family well—they raised her. Yes, they are thieves, but not killers. Her frustration grows as the murders continue and the guild has bounties placed on their heads… and they’re targeted by unknown assassins.

Kira’s instincts lead her to suspect the two newest guild members—Russell and Pierceton. She loathes them both, but before she can find evidence of their betrayal, Russell is murdered and Pierceton disappears.

Determined to find out who is behind the murders and the attempts on her family’s lives, Kira’s journey to clear their names will lead her to a town where anything is available for a price… even murder; to the royal palace and the chambers of the King and Queen, and to the love of two men; one she doesn’t trust and one she’s afraid to love.

The Thief’s Betrayal has strong protagonists and supporting characters. There is honor among thieves. And trust and loyalty. However, Kira may find out truth is one quality her family is lacking.

Kingsman and the guild raised Kira well and she is as strong and honorable as they are. Sometimes her confidence contains too much ego and leads her to make poor decisions or act in haste, and she curses herself for her lapse in judgment.

I enjoyed this read. However, I do admit to wanting to skim about three-quarters of the way through. It dragged for me with redundant scenes of internal thoughts, and there were scenes which were never explained enough for me, but the deceptions and plot twists leading to the story’s climax kept me reading.

Fantasy lovers will enjoy Kira’s story… and find out what Nightlock is.

Enjoy!

Synopsis

Someone is murdering the citizens of Kira’s village, and her fellow thieves are being blamed. Desperate to clear their names and restore the reputation of the guild, Kira embarks on a dangerous mission to infiltrate the palace and enlist the help of the king and queen.

One man stands in her way, Chaol, the head guard, who threatens to steal the thief’s heart.

And he’s not the only one. Her childhood crush on Badrick might finally be developing into something more than friendship. But only if they can figure out who is threatening to kill them before it is too late.

Kira wants to trust Kingsman, the man who took her in and raised her as his own, but she is starting to wonder if he has been lying to her all along.

Can the three men closest to her keep Kira safe long enough for her to carry out her plan to save the village? Or will the secrets they have kept from her destroy her happiness—and her life—before she has a chance to clear her name and prove the innocence of those she cares about the most?
