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)

by Leandra Martin

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.
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.

„Only when invited can you touch.”
“I’m not even sure I want to.”

T4M!

Steppenwolf este o formatie de hard rock celebra la sfarsitul anilor ’60. Grupul s-a format in 1961 in Los Angeles din vocalistul John Kay, chitaristul Michael Monarch, basistul Rushton Moreve, claparul Goldy McJohn si tobosarul Jerry Edmonton, dupa dizolvarea grupului The Sparrow din Toronto, Canada.

Trupa a vandut peste 25 de milioane de discuri in intreaga lume, cu 8 albume premiate cu aur, 12 single-uri in Billboard Hot 100, dintre care sase in primele 40 si trei in primele 10. Printre cele mai cunoscute cantece ale trupei se numara “Born to Be Wild”, “Magic Carpet Ride” si “Rock Me”.

Trupa s-a bucurat de succes mondial intre 1968 si 1974, insa din cauza certurilor si conflictelor s-a schimbat componenta formatiei. Astazi, John Kay este singurul membru ramas din formatia originala, jucand rolul de solist vocal al trupei timp de peste 40 de ani.

Oare de ce?

-Tati, Luana m-a facut proasta!

Multi ma intreaba de ce nu imi plac copiii… oare de ce?

Dintre toate chestiile de pe Pamant una singura ma enerveaza cel mai mult: minciuna. Recunosc, am o problema destul de grava, ma enervez foarte tare cand cineva minte, dar incerc, incerc sa ma abtin, mai ales cand vine vorba despre copiii de 5 ani. E o fetita care vine destul de des pe la noi. E al naibii de desteapta si imi place chestia asta la ea si ,Doamne, o iubesc! dar minte foarte mult. Si cand zic mult, MULT. Nu conteaza ce fac, daca ei nu ii convine, da fuga la parintii ei(care de multe ori sunt prin bucatarie impreuna cu ai mei si vorbesc) sau la ai mei si inventeaza ea ceva, cat mai urat sa fie, doar ca sa o fiu eu pedepsita. (sau cel care face ce nu-i place ei) Si asa stateam eu, frumos, in pat, cu laptopul pe genunchi, ascultand rockfm, si citind ceva interesant. Fetita era langa mine si tot vorbea(habar nu am ce). Normal ca atunci cand incepe o melodie preferata nu te poti abtine si incepi sa canti(in soapta, in cazul meu); pai se putea sa nu inteleaga Mihaela a mea altceva? Melodia era in germana, si eu cantam; din tot ce spuneam eu, ea a inteles „esti o proasta.” Stiam ce urmeaza, tatal ei era in bucatarie palavragind cu tati.

-Te spun!

-Mihaela, dar nu te-am facut proasta, cantam!

…………………………

-Tati, Luana m-a facut proasta!

😕 M-am simtit ca naiba, omu’ ala isi crede fiica, acu’ eu eram aia vinovata, criminalul! Nu prea imi pasa, dar… Oricum, am trecut de asta, s-a intors in camera dupa cateva minute, eu ma uitam la un serial. Obisnuiesc ca, dupa ce face cate o faza de genul asta, sa nu-i mai vorbesc. Nu m-am putut abtine; a venit si s-a pus langa mine si se uita si ea la serial, asa ca am vorbit cu ea. Mai bine spus, i-am interzis sa se uite pentru ca, de multe ori sunt crime si nu vreau sa vada asta.

-Da’ sunt destul de mare, mami ma lasa!

-Nu, eu nu te las, nu esti acasa.

-Te spun!

-Spune-ma!

O, Doamne! Cireasa de pe tort! Nu cred ca va trecea asta prin cap, fiti atenti: Destul de curajoasa sa ma infrunte, trebuie sa recunosc, s-a dus la bucatarie, unde erau parintii mei si tatal ei si a spus:

-Tati, Luana nu ma lasa sa ma uit la serial. E cu barbati mari si cu alea-alea!

😯

In mintea mea era o adevarata furtuna, sfarsitul lumii! Am inceput sa rad, altceva nu puteam sa fac. Ce a vrut sa spuna prin „barbati mari si cu alea-alea”? Numai ea stie. Tatal ei a vrut sa vada la ce ma uitam, si tati la fel, nu stiam ce sa fac, le-am explicat care e faza, dar totusi… am ramas masca. Cum poti sa spui asa ceva? Doamne, eu la 5 ani nu indrazneam sa spun asa ceva despre cineva, nu conteaza ca il cunosteam sau nu, dar nu indrazneam! Toti spun ca e copil si ca nu stie, eu cred ca stie foarte bine ce spune, nu conteaza varsta! In fine, a lasat-o sa se uite, i-a cerut voie, dar sa nu dea vina pe mine cand fata lui o sa viseze cai decapitati, sange peste tot si o sa se trezeasca urland si dand din maini si din picioare asta pentru ca cineva i-a infipt Frumoasei un topor in cap! Nu-i vina mea, l-am avertizat! 😈

Stephen King

Just Stephen King being Stephen King.

 

You know the story about Job? In the Bible? Well, here’s the part that never got written down. After the contest for Job’s soul is over and God wins, Job gets down on his knees and says, „Why did you do this to me, God? All my life I worshiped you, but You destroyed my livestock, blighted my crops, killed my wife and my children, and gave me a hundred horrible diseases … all because You had a bet going with the devil? Well, okay . . . but what I want to know, Lord all your humble servant wants to know is Why me?” So he waits, and just when he’s about made up his mind God isn’t going to answer, a thunderhead forms in the sky, and lightning flashes, and this voice calls down: „Job! I guess there’s just something about you that pisses me off.”
