#Fridaybookshare Rise of the Sparrows @sarinalanger @ShelleyWilson72 #fantasy

Happy Friday everyone. I haven’t joined in the #Fridaybookshare for a while, so here goes. Created by Shelley Wilson. Check out Shelly’s blog.


Anyone can join in. Just answer the following F.R.I.D.A.Y. questions based on the book you’re either currently reading or have just finished reading. Use the hashtag #FridayBookShare and remember to tag Shelley (@ShelleyWilson72) 

First line of the book.

It was not often that the island of Kaethe, cradle of all evil, saw visitors.

Recruit fans by adding the book blurb.

Growing up homeless and orphaned in a town that hates her, Rachael must assassinate the king of Rifarne to become queen to a people who once wanted her dead. Rifarne is a country opposed to magic. When its people demand harsh action, King Aeric sees himself with no other choice but to outlaw those with the gift. Rachael, who possesses the rare gift of a Seer, soon finds herself with visions of her own violent death. When her escape goes wrong and she ends up in the clutches of a vicious Mist Woman lusting for her blood, she finds she is the only person who can stop the war against people like her – and assassinating the king to take his throne may well be the only way to do just that.

Introduce the main character using only three words.

Rachael – Street smart, resourceful, self reliant

Delightful design (add the cover of the book.)


Audience appeal (who would enjoy reading this book?)

Fans of fantasy and YA fantasy.

Your favourite line/scene.

It was the face of the man commanding them which had her in a cold sweat. His voice and his piercing eyes were all too familiar, but she was certain that she had never met him before. Her twisting insides told her to run, and she wasn’t going to ignore it.
