All right. So am I. So are you. But you know what I mean.

|Isn't this a great cover?|
Rumors of War hang over Princess Jeniah's peaceful country of Arden, a land that shuns both magic and warfare. Following a lifelong dream, Jeniah forms a telepahtic bond with a revered creature called a chayim, who is prophesied to save her kingdom. But when a Darborian knight comes upon Jeniah with her chayim, he sees only a vicious monster about to devour a maiden, and he slays the beast.
Devastated by the loss of her chayim, and fearing that her own magic is evil, Jeniah doubts her destiny. When an enemy invades Arden City, they slaughter the people, storm the castle, and execute the entire royal family except the princess. Rescued by the knight who slew her chayim, Jeniah is now heir to the throne of Arden and the only hope for freeing her people from tyranny.
On the run and hunted by enemy soldiers, Jeniah must place her life and the fate of her kingdom in the hands of this trained killer. Torn between embracing her destiny as queen af Arden, and her love for a mere knight, she must ultimately rely on her magic to save herself and her people from death and tyranny.
What does Bobbie think?
As I began to read yet another book about magic I was skeptical since I have read a few lately. I was pleasantly surprised to find this one caught my attention right away with the bond that Jeniah has with her Sacred animal.
I was taken with the tale of trials and love and anger and tears and oh-my-gosh moments that kept me wanting to read till the weee hours of the night. I love this book, and I would recommend it to all ages. I am going to have my 13-year-old read it because I know she would love this book.
I want to acknowledge the kind ladies who gave me a couple of awards this week:
- Robin Weeks granted me the Kreative Blogger Award.
- April Plumber over at If This Doesn't Scare You gave me a different Versatile Blogger Award.
I hope you all had a great weekend. On Saturday I clicked the "send" button for the second time. It was harder in some ways because this one was unsolicited. I'm surprisingly calm about everything.
Hubby and I are going to go out to dinner every time I hit 10 rejections. I got my inspiration from author James Dashner as he mentioned in LTUE last year that that's what he did. The hard part will be those unofficial rejections because the agency has a "no reply" policy. You just tick off the time, and when you haven't heard anything just assume it's a "not interested".
*Rubs hands together*
Where shall we go out to eat?
