Fire and Blood (Bellator’s Story)

A flicker of torchlight spread across the floor of the cold cell, almost reaching the small form that huddled in the shadowy corner. All that could be seen was the edge of a tattered cloak partially blanketing a pair of small, dirty feet. Footsteps echoed in the foul-smelling air, which – upon first breathing in, stung the nose – but one could get numb to it over time. The shadow of a man blocked the light, before the bars of the cell, his golden hair outlined in the light. Continue reading “Fire and Blood (Bellator’s Story)”

How I Got the Book: ARC

Summary of the Book:

An ancient power long kept dormant stirs in the shadows once more as one boy embarks on a quest to earn his freedom and the freedom of his land!

Magic has turned to myth, the Vaelhyreans of old are naught but legend, and the power of the ancients has long been forgotten. However, with Ealdred, a mere half-breed slave boy, myth becomes real, the forgotten remembered, and the power of legend is reborn.

Book Review: Broken Arrow

A spot on review of Broken Arrow by CS Taylor from

romantic typewriter gardens

To all my beautiful people,

It makes me supremely proud to have the chance to review this book for you.

Not often do I get the chance to read ARC copies for up and coming authors. When those copies are the first book in a series, it’s common for me to read one, enjoy it, and never read the rest.

However, I’ve recently read a book for a young friend and I must say that it’s something that I would be interested in reading again, as well as having the opportunity to read its sequels.

This book was written by a young lady on my writing forum, Neverland. Because of this, I’m excited to share this with you.

I recently posted concerning the importance of being involved with other writers and the opportunities doing gives you. For me, that opportunity is getting the chance to see young authors…

Meet the Character

Meet Ealdred (MC of Broken Arrow)

Ealdred is a half-breed, the hated mix of the people of Lavylli, who live in the heart of the earth, and the people who live under the sun. He has been a slave since birth, tossed from master to master throughout his childhood.  In spite of being put down and abused his entire life, he still fights to be worth something, even though he believes deep down that he is worth nothing. He learned to fight through the anger and pain caused by the constant abuse he was shown, and instead looks for the good in others. Even so, he never Continue reading “Meet Ealdred (MC of Broken Arrow)”

Into the Veil of Shadow — Annalyn’s Story

The tavern was a buzz of excitement as the midday rush neared its close, but Annalyn’s thoughts were elsewhere as she stared out through the open window. Beyond the docks, the waters of the lake shone in the sunlight, and the forest on the outskirts of town whispered her name. She stood, transfixed, only coming out of her stupor when the Continue reading “Into the Veil of Shadow — Annalyn’s Story”


Author Interview: Azaria Durant

From the Book Reviewer's Desk

Author of Broken Arrow (Coming Soon)

IMG_1812 (1)

Greetings! My name is Azaria and I am a passionate writer and artist. I love stories with tons of action and adventure, complex characters, and a plot riddled with unexpected twists and turns. Thus my writing tends to emulate these qualities. I write mainly for myself, but it gives me great pleasure to share my work with others!

I live in Atlantic Canada with my family and my cats. Aside from writing, I enjoy sketching concept art for my characters. When not doing anything story related, I like taking long walks, participating in community theatre, and kicking back with the family.

She has a novel called Broken Arrow coming out July 29th of this year. I will include a link where you can pre-order it at the bottom of this interview. For now I will show you the cover.
