Book Tour! A Light in the Darkness (The Vault of Kings #1) by Matt Taylor



A Light in the Darkness
The Vault of Kings Book 1
by Matt Taylor
Genre: YA Fantasy

For ten years, the dark mage Maelos has shrouded Evendreil in darkness and oppression. With no hope in sight, many are struggling to survive; others pray that their luck will remain. In searching for answers, Sylas stumbles upon an ancient artifact--a mysterious silver amulet--that confirms the reality of the fabled Vault of Kings. Hoping to overthrow Maelos and end his evil reign, Sylas and his companions set off to find the legendary elemental stones of power that are needed to unlock the door to the vault. If they are to succeed in their quest, they must first learn to master the ancient art of Magick in all of its basic forms: Light, Darkness, Water, Fire, Nature, and Air. Then they must pray that whatever secret is contained in the Vault of Kings will be enough to give them the edge that they need to defeat the most powerful dark mage that the world has ever seen.

The Vault of Kings Book 2

Gelendor has fallen. Darkness has descended once again. Despite the danger, Torren has decided to stay in Gelendor to try and form a secret rebellion while the others make their journey towards Sindmyr, the Capital of Light. Once there, Sylas and Samara will need to convince the King of Sindmyr to join their cause and fight back against the armies of Maelos. To be successful, the two young mages will not only need to continue to master the ancient art of Light Magick, but also uncover an ancient secret that has been hidden away beneath the City of Light for generations. A secret that could prove deadly to any who attempt to wield it. Most importantly, Sylas will need to prove that he is worthy to obtain the Stone of Light and unite it with the ancient silver amulet. With two Elemental Stones of power at his side, Sylas will bring himself one step closer to completing the key to the Vault of Kings. One step closer to unlocking the powerful secret that's been hidden from the world for over a thousand years. Gelendor has fallen to Darkness, but in the Light...there is still hope.

I'm a small town boy from Southeast Idaho. I've wanted to share my stories and wild imagination with the world for a long time, and finally decided that now is better than never. I have loved reading fantasy books ever since I was little, but there was always something missing, something that I wished that I could add to the story, to make it mine. Writing a book and putting yourself out there for the world to see is daunting to say the least, but the joy and sense of accomplishment you get from seeing your story out there, for all to read and enjoy is a feeling like none other. 
I hope that you will enjoy the worlds of my mind, and take part in the adventures that have been hidden from the world, but are now finally being revealed.

Book Tour! Bride of the Frontier (The Prophecy of Sisters) by Hayley Faiman


Title: Bride of the Frontier
Series: The Prophecy of Sisters
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Fantasy Alpha
Release Date: February 18, 2021

“Honestly, I'm obsessed with this series! Hayley Faiman delivers when it comes to Fantasy. And Birdie & Colts journey did NOT disappoint... full of magic, angsty goodness, 🔥🔥🔥 chemistry, and ALL twist & turns!” ~ 5 Star Amazon Review
Bride of the Frontier is packed with action, drama, and HOT steamy sex! … The journey Hayley takes us on was exciting! The next book can’t come quick enough!!!” ~ 5 Star Amazon Review

Birdie Collins is on a mission to find her two missing sisters. They are, however, the most responsible of the Collins girls, and they’ve vanished. It isn’t like them to disappear, not answer phone calls, not call their mother regularly.

Her worries vanish just as instantly as her sisters did when one minute she’s driving in Arizona and the next she’s in the middle of the hot desert—alone, without her car anywhere in sight.

A mysterious man on a horse scoops her up and takes her to a house, where she promptly passes out.

When she awakens, she’s met with a man. A beautiful man. He looks like he’s been ripped from the pages of an Old West history book. He’s tall and lean, his hair is a bit too long, but those green eyes render her speechless.

Colton James has known love. He was married once, and his wife was cruelly taken from him as a spoil of war. Even as the King of the Frontier, he vows never to marry again, no matter how badly his country officials beg for him to.

An ancient prophecy that her sisters have already set into motion is only solidified as Birdie joins them in their world. Magic fills the skies as they resist and fall deeply for one another, fighting the eclectic pull that the gods have created inside of them.

Will love be enough for the couple? Can it forgive hurts from the past? Is what they share even real or merely a mirage from the gods? If they cannot find their way together, the entire country will assuredly be in peril.


As an only child, Hayley Faiman had to entertain herself somehow. She started writing stories at the age of six and never really stopped.

Born in California, she met her now husband at the age of sixteen and married him at the age of twenty in 2004. After all of these years together, he’s still the love of her life.

Hayley’s husband joined the military and they lived in  Oregon,where he was stationed with the US Coast Guard. They moved back to California in 2006, where they had two little boys. Recently, the four of them moved out to the Hill Country of Texas, where they adopted a new family member, a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.

Most of Hayley’s days are spent taking care of her two boys, going to the baseball fields for practice, or helping them with homework. Her evenings are spent with her husband and her nights—those are spent creating alpha book boyfriends.

New Review! Claiming Chloe (Northern Rockies Pack #4) by Anne Kane


Claiming Chloe (Northern Rockies Pack #4)Claiming Chloe by Anne Kane

4 Cranky Stars

I liked this book. All the characters fit in well together. I was not to keen on how quick Chloe and Damon “hooked” up. All in all, I would recommend this book.

Chloe and Damon are the main characters and they are wolves. They are yin and yang. They both like to be in charge. Immediately they hit it off and “did the deed” in the woods.

Chloe’s brother Garrett asked Damon to keep an eye on Chloe. Damon kept an eye on her alright and Chloe is giving him a run for his money, keeping him on his toes. They have a mate-bond that Chloe can’t deny, but doesn’t exactly accept yet either. So does she give in?

Now, Chloe has a stalker. This stalker saw Chloe and Damon together and he is not happy. The stalker did things to try to scare Chloe but she doesn’t scare so easily. She is a wolf remember. So who is this stalker? Why does he like Chloe so much? What will he do? I guess you will just have to read the book to find out.

New Review! Street Smart (Work For It #1) by Aly Stiles 4 Cranky Stars


Street Smart (Work For It #1)Street Smart by Aly Stiles

4 Cranky Stars

This book was a change from the normal emotional romances Aly Styles writes. It took a bit to shift gears for me when reading this one since it’s more romcom. It started shaky for me at first I wasn’t sure where it was going and it seemed a bit scattered but once It got rolling I was into it. I mean who could resists Chads whole nut presentation? I was laughing out loud with my husband looking at me like I was crazy. He wasn’t the star of the show though that title belonged to Marcos and Eva. An up and coming business major and the daughter who works for her fathers company.

Eva works for her fathers’ company but starts to notice some strange goings on. When Marcos is hired as her intern, she knows he is the perfect one to help her uncover these shady deals. Eva soon realizes she doesn’t just like him for his brain and his smarts she realizes he’s so much more. Marcos has never felt like he’s belonged. He’s a former stripper who is now a business major and wants to make something of his life. He accepts an intern position at Reedweather and hopes this will be his foot in the door. He doesn’t expect to meet Eva who he works for but he is smitten with her. He is happy to help her develop a plan to stop the corporate tyranny going on. Even if it means playing rummy with a creepy old lady and getting molested by an equally creepy lady who is married to someone else.

I did love the banter between these two. They were funny at times but hella smart. This was different for me from this author like I said but no author should be chained to one genre. Aly Styles proved she could do funny as well. I may have been in the middle of a rare ice storm in the south when I read this but mentally I was cheering on Marcos and Eva from page one.
