Messenger in The Mist




My Ebook, Messenger in The Mist, comes out today at Lyrical Press! You can read my interview over at Surrounded By Books.

Here's the blurb:

Star Nightengale is one of only a few riders fast enough to elude the mysterious beasts lurking in the moors. She has trained her entire life to be a messenger for the Elite Riders of Evenspark and races on horseback through the misted countryside, delivering correspondence to the bordering Fortress of Ravencliff. She risks her life for the gold to relocate her parents from their precarious home in the outskirts, for her illustrious career, and for an unrequited love.

On an important mission, Star discovers that she carries plans for the assassination of the one man who has captured her heart, Prince Valen of Ravencliff. Star must weigh her love against the livelihood that she has spent a lifetime to build and the country that she once thought was peaceful and just. To make matters worse, she learns that Prince Valen is secretly betrothed to Princess Vespa of Evenspark. Consequently, loving him would mean sundering already unstable relations between the two kingdoms.

Meanwhile, the mist is rising, enabling the Elyndra to gather in numbers and threaten the borders of both kingdoms. Star must unravel the mystery of their existence and forestall the war before they fall under invasion. In her search she uncovers the secret origins of her ancestors, revealing untold truths about the history of humanity.

As always, I'm looking for reviewers to read it! Let me know if you are interested in looking at it and I can send you a free pdf.

You're welcome for the interview! I enjoyed it. I purchased my copy of Messenger in the Mist, and you know I'll review it once I finish it. :)

Congratulations, Aubrie! The premise sounds incredible! Once my massive To-Do list is cut down to a manageable size (hardly getting ANY reading or writing time in lately...) I'd be happy to read and review it. :)

Ooh, Prince Valen. I like the name!

Sophia said...

I love that your female MC not only has her own career but one that's rare in the fantasy genre and actually ties in with the plot and gives her a reason for a certain skillset (fast riding but I'm sure there's more). I also like that she has some selfless motives along with unrequited love so that it steers clear of the pitfall of turning into pure angst. From the pitch it sounds like a good read!

At the risk of sounding like a complete idiot - can I read this if I don't have a Kindle or anything? If I can read the .pdf on my computer, then I'd love to read and review it.
