The Firelight of Maalda Blog Tour

Today I'm pleased to welcome Melissa Douthit to my blog today with her blog tour stop for The Firelight of Maalda-Book 2 in the  
Legend of the RaieChaelia. 
I've read both Prequels and am now working on Book 1. Stay tuned for the review of these.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you enjoy what you read here.

Excerpt from The Firelight of Maalda, chapter: The Secret of Portalis, pages 88-89:

       “It’s clever,” she remarked.
       “No, it’s scientific,” Aemis said expertly as he turned back to his workbench.
       Dekkar rolled his eyes.  “Ever since I explained that word to him, he keeps using it,” he whispered to Ben.
       Jeremiah snorted.  “You should feel special,” he said.  “Before this, everything was ‘ingenious.’”
       Chalice glanced over to see if Aemis had heard but he didn’t seem to be paying attention.  He was too engrossed in his work.  What a strange character, she thought.  She turned to Dekkar.  “What is scient … I don’t even know what he said.”
       “Scientific.  It is an adjective meant to describe something that is characterized by the methods and principles of science.”
       “Uh, okay … what is science?”  Chalice didn’t mean to sound rude but it was almost as if Dekkar was speaking a different language.
       “Science is a word our ancestors defined as the study of the structure and behavior of the physical world through observations and experiment,” he said and she cocked an eyebrow as to say: Huh?  “In other words, Chalice, it was their way understanding the world and how it worked, breaking it down into finite pieces, observing those pieces in experimentation and examining the results in terms of cause and effect.  By doing this, they believed they could control their surroundings, or become gods of their own world so to speak, and although their capacity for rational thought was exceptional, it limited their worldview.”

I’ve had several people ask me what the book’s blurb means: A story that unites the real with the fantastical and turns science into magic.

So, how does it unite the real with the fantastical?  Those who have read the first book, The Raie’Chaelia, have been calling the story an epic fantasy, or a high fantasy, comparing it to Jordan’s or Tolkien’s world, but it is neither.  It is not an epic fantasy but rather a futuristic fantasy set in this world.  This becomes apparent in The Firelight of Maalda, when Chalice and Jeremiah visit the Archive in the chapter called The Secret of Portalis.  The second book touches upon themes that are really related to our world and the problems in it.  These themes are the reason why I began writing the trilogy in the first place.  I wanted to see if it was possible to take the harsh realities of our world and juxtapose them with problems in a fantastical world.  I wondered: How would the heroine and hero react to problems and dangers that are real for us today?  How would it compare with their own problems in their world?  Would it be just as frightening?

How does it turn science into magic?  Throughout the book, the reader will hear echoes of modern science, or more accurately modern physics.  For those who have studied it, particularly the theories laid out by Albert Einstein and more recently, Edward Witten, they understand that modern physics has really gone beyond the circle of empirical science into the realms of philosophy and religion, even the fantastical, giving it a magical quality.  Therefore, it was easy to use the principles laid out by these theories as magic in the story.

But, in my humble opinion, this story is first and foremost a story of love, where the heroine has to choose between doing her duty for her people and following her heart.  The two main characters, Chalice and Jeremiah, knew each other as children.  When they meet again, they remember the friendship they shared as kids.  It begins to grow and blossom into something stronger throughout the first book, coming to fruition at the end.  In so many other YA stories I’ve read, a meet-cute is usually between two strangers who fall in love, but I wanted this one to be different.  The Vanishing, a prequel to book one, is particularly romantic because Jeremiah feels something deep down, something missing from his life that he describes as a hole in his chest, and then finally learns what it is when he sees her again.  That is, his heart remembers (The Vanishing, page 51):

            She studied him for a moment and then, suddenly, her face lit up in recognition. “Oh my gosh, no, I do remember!” she exclaimed. “Jeremiah?!” she asked and he nodded. “Jeremiah Maehbeck! How could I have forgotten?!”
            He smiled as she said the words and caught a twinkle of joy in her eye at seeing him again. Then he suddenly realized what had been missing in his life this whole time. After all these years, he finally understood the emptiness inside of him and realized what could fill it – the only thing that could fill it. It was her.

The Last Beginning
by Rachel Firasek

Though she’s always hated being a phoenix, Sadie has to 
admit immortality has its advantages. She’s seen and done more in the last 150 years than she’d ever dreamed of, but she can’t get past the fact that Osiris has done nothing but manipulate her and her fellow phoenixes.

Or that, when her last incarnation as a phoenix comes to a fiery end, the fire slowly begins to consume her body.

Sun god Osiris is ashamed of his role as ruler of the Underworld, but he unless he can figure out how to save Sadie, that’s exactly where she’s going to end up. Permanently. Terrified he’s going to lose her, he takes her on a hunt for The Book of the Dead, which is the only way he knows he can save her—even if it means she’ll hate him forever.
Description from Amazon.com

The last chapter of the Curse of the Phoenix series was a beautiful ending to the trilogy.
For anyone who loves a good romance, this is the book for you. I really liked Sadie with her fiery personality and was pulled into her story. I think Sadie is my favorite Phoenix.  Her journey is one of the best so far.
The book reminds me of the complexity of love and all the feelings that come into play.
I give this book 5 fairies for the simple truth of love and for making me feel the story.
Bravo, Rachel. I will continue to be a fan of your books.


Aloha from hell
 by Richard kadrey

Supernatural fantasy’s greatest anti-hero goes back to hell!
In Sandman Slim Stark came back from hell for revenge.
In Kill the Dead he tackled both a zombie plague and being Lucifer’s bodyguard.
Once again all is not right in L.A. Lucifer is back in Heaven, God is on vacation, and an insane killer mounts a war against both Heaven and Hell.
Stark’s got to head back down to his old stomping grounds in Hell to rescue his long lost love, stop an insane serial killer, prevent both Good and Evil from completely destroying each other, and stop the demonic Kissi from ruining the party for everyone.
Even for Sandman Slim, that’s a tall order. And it’s only the beginning.
Description from Amazon.com

The third book in the Sandman Slim series doesn’t disappoint. My favorite character in this journey is Stark with a side of Alice. The book has plenty of twists and turns and some of my questions were answered. Kadrey’s definition of God is outside of the box and I love it. It makes a weird sort of sense once you think about it. It’s a kickass confection of action with a little twist of the crazy liquor of love. Kadrey is fast becoming one of my favorite authors. His unique characters pull me full tilt on the carnival ride through Hell and beyond.
I’m looking forward to the next Sandman Slim installment.
This journey gets 5 fairies for making me think outside of the box and keeping me turning the pages.

I purchased this book.

Fiction's Little Houses of Horror: How Authors Write Scenes that Go "Boo!"

Jon Reisfeld
Jon Reisfeld
How can words on a page make your skin crawl? Your pulse race? Your heart leap out of your chest? Or cause you to break into a cold sweat? After all, they’re just words …on…a…page. Right?
We asked three horror/paranormal writers to explain the elements of horror writing that they use to create scenes that make our minds hit the panic button, over and over again. As you’ll see, they were surprisingly forthcoming. But how much can you really explain about something so intangible, and yet so visceral, as “horror”? Can fear be reduced to a simple formula, or is part of summoning our hobgoblins simply too arcane an art to sum up in a few words? Like sorcery, does it defy easy explanation?
Today’s authors: Athanasios Galanis, author of the paranormal/horror thriller,Mad Gods: Revelation Canceled?; Teresa Gabelman, author of the vampire saga Damon (The Protectors Series) and Renee Pawlish, author of the horror/thrillerNephilim: Genesis of Evil are all featured in "The Last Way Station Mega Book Tour",a new concept in virtual book touring, in which authors take part in tag-team guest blogs, like this one. The tour, which I founded, is named in honor of my book, The Last Way Station. Click here to take your chance at winning a Kindle Fire in the tour’s official Sweepstakes and then here to learn more about our featured authors and their books.
In addition to discussing their approaches to horror writing, and what scares them, our authors have included excerpts from their current books. Two made audio recordings, so you can experience how they make horror come to life on the page, in their own voices. The third provided a quite potent written example.
So, let's get started.

Author Teresa Gabelman: “Dark forests, creepy basements and old houses don’t scare me, it’s the characters that make me jump.”

Teresa Gabelman
Teresa Gabelman
“To me, the scary things that make me keep my lights on at night are something so realistic it could really happened to anyone of us. I also love to add a villain who you would never think was evil and throw them in there for a surprise twist. Dark forests, creepy basements and old houses don’t scare me, it’s the characters that make me jump.
“It’s especially scary if it is someone totally unexpected. The character that rated high on my scary scale was Annie Wilkes in Stephen King’s Misery. She was nothing like the horror ‘bad guys’ I had ever read before, but she rated right up there with the best of them. So it’s not really a place or circumstance that makes horror scary to me, but the characters that could, maybe, be your next door neighbor.”
Story Summary for Damon (The Protectors Series):
Damon DeMaster's is a vampire warrior who has taken an oath not only to protect his own kind and humans. Crimson Rush (Vampire Blood), a new drug on the streets, targets children, and the Vampire Council has ordered Damon to find out who is behind it and to stop them.
Social worker Nicole Callahan fights for the rights of every child placed in her care, vampire and human alike. She sees the emerging vampire-human war of survival as a threat to the children of both races.
Damon and his fellow warriors train Nicole and her colleagues to fight with them against the new dangers. As sparks fly and tensions mount, Nicole and Damon must rely on each other to keep all of the children safe.
Chad stood in the middle of a small, dark, nasty-smelling room wondering, for the hundredth time, if he had truly lost his mind. Memories of the night at the hospital haunted him. No, he hadn't lost his mind; Revenge had overtaken it. The need for revenge was strong, filling every waking second, making him sick with hate.
“You got the money?” A raspy voice echoed from a dark corner of the room.
Chad tossed the envelope on the table next to him. “It's all there. Count it if you want.”
Long pale fingers reached out from the darkness tapping the envelope with one long pointed fingernail. “You sure about this, human? Usually it is you bringing me treats to feed my hunger. Their blood is so sweet and tangy.”

No, he wasn't fucking sure about this, Chad thought, but straightened up. Too much depended on this transaction and he’d be damned if he’d back out now. He had some paybacks to dish out, and this was his only option.
“Yeah, I'm sure so let's do this before I change my mind.” The envelope disappeared into the darkness.
“There ain't no going back.” The voice deepened.
“No shit.” Chad watched the thing behind the voice come into the shadowy light and knew he was totally screwed. Red eyes glowed from the darkness as a figure moved toward him. God this was crazy, but if he didn't take care of that bitch and her blood-sucking hero he was as good as dead, anyway. This was the only way. Not a praying man, he sent one up anyway hoping the ‘big guy’ would hear his one last request to survive what was to come.
“Any last requests human?”
“Yeah, make it quick.” Chad stepped back, his eyes growing wide as he got his first look at the thing behind the voice. “Oh God.”
“Don't think God's gonna help you now.” The evil laugh echoed through the dark room.
Chad screamed as he was attacked. His last thought was of the bitch and her lover dying by his hand. Soon, very soon. The screams stopped and the only sound in the dark room was the sloppy grotesque sounds of the creature sucking Chad’s blood from his body.

Author Athanasios Galanis: “Taking the everyday, familiar and comfortable and making it alien, will make something scary.”

Athanasios Galanis

“Taking the everyday, familiar and comfortable and making it alien, will make something scary.
“You walk into your home, and you find the front door open when you know you closed it before you left for work. What will you find when you slowly walk though the same door you didn’t think twice about yesterday? Will your pets be ok, will your possessions still be there? Is it possible somebody could still be inside?
“Your heart is racing and part of you is screaming to just call 911 on your cell phone and don’t go in alone, but you ignore it because that’s your home and you’ve been invaded and you have to know the damage. Is there going to be damage or is the chill running up your spine just your imagination trying to beat your heart in a race to drive you crazy?”
Story Summary for Mad Gods: Revelation Canceled?:
Mad Gods: Revelation Canceled?

The Antichrist lives. He is wanted dead or alive by Satanists, the Catholic Church and the Dark Nobility. Kostadino, the immortal, supernatural heir to the dead kings of Constantinople, must save the boy or let the world turn into hell on earth. He kidnaps him and the two begin a life on the run, pursued by the tireless agents of good and evil.
The Mad Gods story line plays itself out on multiple continents and across vast stretches of time in a tightly woven narrative that moves, seamlessly, between the natural, and supernatural, worlds.


Author Renee Pawlish: “The best horror [writing] … sets up a scene with suspense, and then uses great descriptions to keep the tension and fear building.”

Renee Pawlish
Renee Pawlish
“Making a scene scary is an art. A good start is one where the threat is real, but not necessarily in your face right from the start of the scene. I don’t believe in just throwing violence and gore at a reader in the hopes that this will frighten them. The best horror that I’ve read and enjoyed is that which sets up a scene with suspense, and then uses great descriptions to keep the tension and fear building. If you write your scene well enough, the reader’s imagination will do far more than your descriptions of violence and blood will ever do.”

The Near Witch by Victoria Schwab Review




The Near Witch is only an old story told to frighten children.

If the wind calls at night, you must not listen. The wind is lonely, and always looking for company.

And there are no strangers in the town of Near.

These are the truths that Lexi has heard all her life.

But when an actual stranger — a boy who seems to fade like smoke — appears outside her home on the moor at night, she knows that at least one of these sayings is no longer true.

The next night, the children of Near start disappearing from their beds, and the mysterious boy falls under suspicion. Still, he insists on helping Lexi search for them. Something tells her she can trust him.

As the hunt for the children intensifies, so does Lexi’s need to know—about the witch that just might be more than a bedtime story, about the wind that seems to speak through the walls at night, and about the history of this nameless boy.

Part fairy tale, part love story, Victoria Schwab’s debut novel is entirely original yet achingly familiar: a song you heard long ago, a whisper carried by the wind, and a dream you won’t soon forget.

This is an arc of Near Witch that was given to me by the author and not the completed book.

            “The Near Witch” by Victoria Schwab is one of those books that takes you into the story.  It is a very good book (I am so looking forward to the finished book).  You go through everything the character, Lexi goes through and the village of Near, when the children start disappearing. It is a page turner and is very hard to put down—the final copy is going to be placed on my wish list—adding it to my collection. I read and reviewed an advanced copy for proof. I was hooked; the author has a gift for capturing her audience.  This would be a good book to add to any Teen’s collection or any high school or public library’s Teen/YA Section.

Gracen Miller Character Interview and Swag Giveaway

Today I’m pleased to welcome Gracen Miller to my little home on the web with an interview with Micah. She is also giving away some swag so check out the info below in regards to that.

Road to Hell Series Character Interview
~ Meet bad boy Micah Dominus ~
By Gracen Miller
Heather: Today at Earth Book Nook, I have sexy bad boy Micah Dominus from the Road to Hell series with me. He was introduced in the prequel, Madison’s Life Lessons, and in book one, Pandora’s Box. On February 17th, his next edition in the saga will be released in, Hell’s Phoenix. Thank you for joining me today, Micah.

Micah: Thanks for inviting me, Heather.

Heather: For those who haven’t read Pandora’s Box, book one in the Road to Hell series, tell us something about yourself. Something we can only discover between the pages.

Micah: Can’t give away too many of my secrets or readers will miss all the surprises. *wicked grin* But I’m of the archangel variety.

Heather: *smiles and lowers voice to a sultry sound* That makes you a bad boy angel, then?

Micah: *chuckles* Technically speaking, yes. I don’t call myself an angel any more. I prefer to disassociate from heavenly society. Father and I aren’t exactly on speaking terms. *winks*

Heather: Some readers would say you’ve been cruel to your wife, Madison. Would you say your actions are justified?

Micah: *nods* Yes. Everything I’ve done has been for her advantage.

Heather: Mmhm…how can you justify violence?

Micah: How can I not when it’s for her benefit? In my world, there is violence and then there is violence. I never tortured her, but only frightened her. She was never in any real danger, even though she perceived differently. All prophecies indicated aggression was necessary to push her to claim her destiny. I’d be shirking my duty as her husband if I ignored the divination. And Madison is fated to be too great to remain a weak mortal.

Heather: So would you say your actions toward her are misunderstood?

Micah: I think I’m misjudged by human standards. I am thankfully not human. I’ve existed longer than the human race has lived. I’ve witnessed the rise and fall of civilizations. I do not process the world as a mortal does because my timeframe is not limited as yours is. What is harsh through human eyes is very mild by even heavenly standards. Father destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with fire, turned Lot’s wife to salt just for a peek of that destruction, allowed Job—a devoted subject—to suffer to prove himself loyal to God, and all of that after He killed many with the flood. *shakes head* Yet, you would judge my actions, call them appalling, when Father has proven time and again the cruelty He can inflict. All of that from a supposedly loving creator. *scoffs* Unbelievable hypocrisy. What did Father’s actions acquire? I’ll tell you. Humans so frightened they worship him out of fear. Where’s the freewill in that? *inhales deeply* My wife lives. She is stronger now than she has ever been, all thanks to my tactics. *swipes his fingers through his chin-length hair* Torture is my specialty; I sip it as you might fine wine, savoring and relishing the pain I inflict…because it spawns a new and better creation. Something Father would disapprove of. *intense stare, refusing to allow Heather to look away* If I’d wanted Madison tortured, she wouldn’t have survived my initial assault. No human could. I scared the hell out of her, yes. Not once did I enjoy it. What human hasn’t on occasion used fear to engender compliance among those they love? If you mortals wish to paint me a monster, then feel free. I’ve been called worse. By my Father, no less. I do what I do so that in another thousand years, Madison and I will still be together, while all of you will be cold and long dead in your graves. When mortality isn’t terrifying you with your morally pretentious righteousness, then we’ll have a genuine debate on my actions, because until that time, none of you can relate to my logic.

Heather: Right…*shifts in her chair* It sounds as if our *finger quote* misjudgment *end finger quote* of you bothers you.

Micah: *smirks* I really don’t care what you mortals think. All that concerns me is the safety of Madison and Amos.

Heather: How do your actions differ from God’s when you’re attempting to frighten her into submission? How is that freewill?

Micah: I will not punish Madison if she chooses a different purpose from mine.

Heather: You will not like it.

Micah: Not even a little.

Heather: You mentioned that God forces worship through fear…haven’t your actions created fear in Madison?

Micah: *snorts* Trust me, she does not fear me. It is I who lives in fear of her discovering how much she means to me how, much she could manipulate me. *tenseness leaves his shoulders and his face softens* Madison means everything to me. As corny as it sounds, she is my world. There is nothing I wouldn’t do for her.

Heather: You love your wife?

Micah: Very much.

 Heather: There would be some—Madison included—that don’t believe you truly love her, but think you are manipulating her for your own gain. What would you forfeit for her to prove your love?

Micah: That would be a private matter for Madison and me to discuss.

Heather: Would you ever consider giving up your kingdom for her?

Micah: *a tiny flinch of surprise* Again that would be a private matter between Madison and me.

Heather: It’s easy to say “I love you”. Actions speak louder than words. Witnessing your attacks toward her in the Road to Hell series, I would say you’re love for her isn’t demonstrated as much as you’d like. If you could do one thing to show your love to Madison, how would you go about it?

Micah: Persistent little mortal, aren’t you? *leans forward in his chair, eyes glowing* How about we alter this line of questioning and move along before I’m forced to move you along…*flashes a dark grin as he chucks her chin*

Heather: *swallows and jerks away from Micah* Do—ah…*peers at notes* How will you…ah…react if Madison chooses Phoenix over you?

Micah: *relaxes into his chair and stretches his legs out in front of him* I’m convinced she won’t. But what if she does? I can see that question burning in your eyes. *tsks at her* I’ll play along. If she does, what is sixty years waiting for him to die when I have eternity on my side? It’s a blink in time. I would wait for her to discover herself, because her attraction to me is too great for her to deny me for long. She will eventually be mine once again.

Heather: If you could tell Madison anything, what would it be?

 Micah: Embrace what you are, not for me, but for you and for Amos, because nothing can stop the ride you’re on.

Heather: Will you tell folks who Amos is, please?

Micah: The greatest kid ever, who just happens to be my son with Madison. He’s got a lot of natural talent and charm, just like his Daddy. *winks*

Heather: Well, that looks like all the time we have today. Micah, thanks so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to join us.

 Micah: *inclines his head*

Heather: Is there anything you’d like to say to my readers?

Micah: Remember there are always two sides to a story. One version is not always the truth.

I hope you enjoyed getting inside the head of Micah from the Road to Hell series. You can read the first three chapters of Pandora’s Box and Hell’s Phoenix, on my blog at:

Where you can stalk me—not really!—but I would love to meet and interact with you:

Pandora’s Box Blurb:

Where does the road to Hell begin?
What happens when your son turns homicidal overnight and your husband disappears on his way to work? Do you cower in fear or fight for your life? Madison Wescott fights against the odds. Distrustful of a God she doesn't believe in, she finds herself face-to-face with a world she didn't know existed and discovers her own soul is darkened with demonic connections.
With good intentions? Or by demonic design?
Phoenix Birmingham bursts into Madison’s life in a whirlwind of sarcasm and sexual appeal. A hero for the masses—and for her jaded heart—but few will ever know the sacrifices he has made or the sacrifices to come. Discovering her entire life has been influenced by multifaceted paranormal beings, Madison is determined to defeat the apocalyptic blueprint fate has decreed, but only one man dares to challenge the supernatural forces manipulating them. Even with Phoenix's aid, can destiny be denied? Or will demonic design prevail while they pay the crucial price with their souls?

In a small, sleepy Alabama town the battle for mankind's liberty has begun...

Hell’s Phoenix Blurb:

Hell’s become more than just a playground for the wicked…

Going to Hell was supposed to save Madison, but knowing she’s dead because of his failure leaves Nix with only one thing to live for. Revenge. With Micah’s help he learns to use his Messianic power. Anything for Mads has become his mantra, even if it means killing innocents to gather the power he needs to succeed. A tsunami he unleashes on a Gulf Coast city is stopped with magical interference, and Nix is more than surprised to feel Madison in the opposing magic. Can he and Micah set a trap to lure her out?

Pandora’s Box…once you open it, there’s no turning back!

Madison has done the unthinkable, opened Pandora’s Box to save Nix from Hell. And failed. She’s willing to risk her own life to rescue Nix, but she worries about the welfare of her accomplice in the mission and leaving her son behind. Following up on a lead, she’s ambushed by Nix and Micah. Shocked and hurt to discover Nix has become a willing participant of Hell, she’s more certain than ever she won’t escape the demonic fate her husband outlined for her. While in Hell, she discovers denying the emergence of her succubus is futile, which means getting Nix out of Hell after embracing her inner demon just became a very real dilemma…
PANDORA’S BOX is available now at the following sites:
