I am very excited to have our very own, Stacy Garrett on the blog today. She has a new book out that I would LOVE to share with you all. Stacy not only wrote the book, but I would recognize her book covers anywhere 😀 So you guys get a twofer lol. Now, let’s get on to discussing more about the book, which, I’ve purchased by the way.
Tyrian Southerwind thought his eighteenth birthday would be unremarkable: take on more duties as the son of the High General, meet with an emissary, and ignore his brother’s teasing over the cluster of interested females stalking the now-legal combatant. Instead, he finds his entire world turned upside down as the beautiful emissary brings him news of the tyranny consuming the land–and stirs his heart in more ways than one. When his brother’s death leads him to revisit their childhood home, and he sees the trouble firsthand, the High General’s son does the only thing he can to save the people: he joins a rebellion.
Unknown to Tyrian and the ones around him, however, is the great destiny laid before him. Long before he had been born, it had been foretold of a hero called a Kaiten Star that would be blessed by the stars and save his land. As Tyrian gathers those destined to share the skies with him and struggles to fight back against the evil infesting the Empire, he finds his ability to endure pushed to the limit. Only the support of his Kentei Star—his destined lover—keeps him from shattering apart entirely.
Gifted with a great power, burdened by eternity, and beholden to Destiny, can Tyrian rise up to become the hero of ancient stories before he loses everyone and everything he holds dear?
About Stacy Garrett:
Stacy J. Garrett (S.J. Garrett) was made in England but born in Sacramento, California. Like the redwoods of the state, her roots have dug deep. Her destiny as a bard was inevitable. Little else can explain how she constantly told her mother tall tales so outlandish that she couldn’t even get grounded for them. Her mother and grandmother had her reading by age three, and that love of a good story propelled her through so many books that Scholastic Books gave her a medal. A love of worlds created by others eventually brought out the desire to create her own, and she has never looked back.
Stacy has seen both good and evil in her life. Her stories, like life, have no half measures. Even in a fantasy world of dragons and faeries, even in a modern city where magic abounds, she knows that the constants of real emotion never change. Dreams come true, love can be found at first sight, princesses can rescue their princes, and maybe there really can be a “happily ever after.” Her happy endings never come without cost, though, for she truly believes we can’t appreciate the good and the joy without the bad and the pain along the way.
Her current haunt is a comfy house in her beloved Sacramento where she wrangles four feline fur-kids and consumes peppermints like mana in order to balance a calendar filled with more creative venues than a sane person should realistically undertake. If she’s not chained to her desk, she’s stomping through the scenery in search of equally fantastical photographs.
