This week I’ve been reading the third book in Crystin Goodwin’s Blessings of Myrilla series, and it reminded me of how much fun Book 1 is. So in preparation for my review of Ice Blessed, I’d like to use Shelley’s meme to introduce UnBlessed, the first book in the series.
First line of the book
Magic coated the fabric of the newly delivered Blessing dress, the colors dancing through a rainbow of shades.
Recruit fans by adding the book blurb
Kisara Tenebris is a Melior: one of the elemental magic users that populate the world of Myrillia. Every aspect of Melior life is dictated by their Blessing, or ability, with the rarest and most powerful earning a spot on the ruling council.
Kisara dreams of the day she’ll receive her own Blessing and take her place among society. But when she’s unBlessed year after year, left behind by her friends – and the boy she loves – she can’t help but wonder what she did wrong.
Instead, Kisara must discover that magic doesn’t determine one’s worth – and that she doesn’t have to be like everyone else to be accepted.
After all, the Elements have greater things planned for Kisara.
Introduce the main character using only three words
Different, Outsider, Alone
Delightful design (add the cover image of the book)
Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)
This series would appeal to readers who enjoy YA fantasy with a romantic element
Your favourite line/scene
His heart clenched in agony. She smiled brightly as though nothing was wrong. As though she hadn’t been missing for days, weeks. Tears blinded him, and he quickly blinked them away. She came running to him, shouting words of greeting. Lucien took a deep breath and pulled his power to him. He let it build so that he could obliterate this impostor that dared to taunt him. He tried not to think of the real Kisara in danger, worried, terrified, or starving. Please, Elements, don’t let me be too late, he thought. Let me find her alive.
