Dark One Rising (Tanith Prophecy #1)
by Leandra Martin
The Kingdom of Aelethia has been quiet for five hundred years, but the Dark One is rising from out of the depths. All of Aelethia will perish unless the Chosen One comes forward to save them. Unfortunately, the Chosen One doesn’t know her destiny in the world; she only knows she is odd and confused about where her destiny lies.
She wants to find love, but the men in her life that actually love her, she cannot have, and the only one that wants her is as evil as they come. The elves know of her destiny and must tell her and train her in time, in order to fulfill the prophesy that has been laid out before her.
Can she become the person they have waited for? Can she, in time, destroy the evil that is threatening to overtake her kingdom? With friends to guide her and a man to whom she truly loves beside her, she may be able to save Aelethia.
“Welcome to Drydon Keep in Azlyn, Your Highness. It’s a pleasure to finally meet you.” “And you as well, Your Majesty,” she said politely, keeping her tone light. “Your reputation precedes you.” Dain looked at Alek but he only put his hands up in defense. “Not from me, Your Majesty.” “Hmmm,” he said, his tone conveying amusement. “That doesn’t bode well for me, for any stories relayed by anyone other than my friends cannot be flattering in the least.” “Stories tend to be exaggerated, Your Majesty, especially by those who talk only to hear the sound of their own voice.” She didn’t know about the other rumors yet, but the descriptions of his extraordinary good looks were certainly true. He looked at her for a moment, then laughed. “Well said, Princess. Perhaps you speak from experience.” “Perhaps.”
First of all, thank you Inkwater Press for sending me this amazing book, and thank you Leandra Martin for understanding that little problem.
I don’t want to tell you Melethia’s story, I don’t want you to read it from my blog, this is an amazing book, all of you should read it. I wanted to participate in this tour because of the synopsis of Dark One Rising. I am a fan of Harry Potter series, The Lord of the rings series and The Hobbit, and somehow, Tanith Prophecy reminded me of these books… I knew I had to read it. Although I read Dark One Rising and Aelethia’s Hope, the first one is my favourite. Why? He he, because… because there I found for the first time what an amazing character Dain is, what a powerful women Melethia is and how beautiful and dangerous evil can be – Fallon. Yes, I like Fallon, but I’m in love with Dain.
I didn’t like Melethia that much, I have to say. I know that, if she embraced her destiny from the beggining, the great story… well I have to write this: great story=0.
Another thing… Why did the author used „like a school girl”? I don’t think that this was used then, and I don’t know why she used it, but this was Leandra Martin‘s choice, she created this world it is hers, and she is making the rules.
She waved back, her ears warmer now from embarrassment at being noticed, gawking like a school girl.
The author created a new world, a world where I would love to live, I saw it and I loved it. I love everything about these books and I highly recommend them to fantasy readers who are romantics at heart.
He watched her speak, enraptured by every word that came out of her delicate mouth. She spoke like a woman, but with a passion of a child, mesmerized by the smallest detail of life. He was excited just listening to her describing what most people would find ordinary, passionate about things that grown people have forgotten about.
Aelethia’s Hope (Tanith Prophecy #2)
With the completion of Melenthia’s training by the elves, she is ready to return to the love of her life. With her knowledge and training, and the revelation that she has Elvin blood, she hopes her relationship with Dain won’t fail, or the destiny she must face in defeating the darkness. Fallon has grown strong and is preparing for war.„Only when invited can you touch.”
Kevaan and his knights plan to take back Lachlan Castle from Fallon’s grip, and Alek must reach the Chancellor in the west before war breaks out. With faith that the Isamarians will join them in the fight to save the world, Melenthia will prepare herself for the ultimate battle, one against Fallon and the Dark One.
Join Melenthia and her friends on this perilous battle between good and evil. Will this be the end for her and Dain? With Tanith’s power, will she be able to withstand the strength of Fallon and the Dark One? Or will she fail and watch as all of Aelethia falls into darkness? This is the exciting finale of the journey of the Chosen One and her powerful sword Tanith.
“I’m not even sure I want to.”
