Author Highlights Five

The Fifth month of Author Highlights is here!  Once a month I post about a single author and their books.  I am behind a month so there will be two Author Highlights in June.  Check out last month’s author Colleen Houck who wrote the Reawakened and Tiger’s Curse series Here.  But what author will we focus on today?

Alison is the author of the Dark Days Club and Eon series along with several other single books.

I have read the Dark Days Club and Eon series.  However, I have not read her other books.  The series were both wonderful and Alison’s voice is clear and strong in her books.

Eon is the story of Eon who has trained his whole life to be chosen by one of the twelve energy dragons of good fortune.  He has had to master swordplay and magical aptitude.  But Eon is not as he seems for her Eona, a girl hiding in plain sight for the chance to become a Dragoneye.  However, females are forbidden from using Dragon Magic and if she is caught death will be the penalty.  As her secret surfaces, Eona is plunged into a struggle for the throne.  She must fight against those determined to take her power and her life even if it ends in catastrophe.

On the eve of Lady Helen Wrexhall’s presentation to the Queen of England, a housemaid disappears drawing Lady Helen into the shadows of London where she meets Lord Carlston.  He is one of the few people who can stop the perpetrators; demons who are infiltrating society.  Should Helen ask for his help when his reputation is as black as his piercing eyes? And if does will it lead to disaster?

Author Highlights Three

This is the third month of Author Highlights.  I love this post because I get to share some great authors I’ve read that are perhaps not that well known.  While deciding what author to do I also have a chance to see what some of my childhood authors have written recently.  It is exciting and I enjoy sharing these author’s with you.  Without further ado, today’s author is…..

Kate O’Hearn

Kate O’Hearn is a children’s fantasy writer.  She has written the Pegasus series, Shadow of the Dragon’s series, and the Valkyrie series.  I have read the Pegasus series, and the first books in the other two series.  I love her books.  They are wonderfully told stories with the Pegasus and Valkyrie series featuring a stunning combination of modern society with that of Norse mythology.

Freya is dreading turning fourteen.  Fourteen is when she takes up the full mantle of responsibility that comes with being a Valkyrie – a collector of souls fallen upon the battlefield.  She longs to interact in the human world as a mortal.  To make friends without fear of killing them with one touch.  Her chance comes when a soldier she is reaping asks for a favor that sends Freya to the human world.  On her journey she battles both the ordinary and extraordinary to fulfill her promise.
