Review: Kyoko M.’s Of Cinder & Bone

My apologies for the late review, but life has kept me busy these past few months.

I won a copy of the novel via the author’s GoodReads giveaway

Review:

The novel’s a great read, it has everything a reader can ask for in a sci-fi/fantasy book.

I applaud the author’s characters who are not only well-developed characters but are diverse and inclusive. It was great to see that one of the main characters is a WOC AND she’s not the only WOC present. Back ground characters are also not one dimensional and also given something to do which is a plus.

The thing that appealed to me the most was how much research the author did in their approach to bringing a dragon to life. The method used in the story has a realistic feel which piqued my curiosity.  Of Cinder & Bone also brought a sense of awe and wonderment, almost like the first time I watched Jurassic Park on the big screen.

The story features action, tension, drama, and comedy and goes at a decent pace. But I expect that from this author. It’s risky to end a novel with a cliffhanger, but the move pays off because I want to know what happens next.  Plus, it makes the book stand out in a good way.

Overall, Of Cinder & Bone is an excellent story. I look forward to the sequel.

5/5

You Can Now Pre-Order I, Darcy ebook

Happy Friday readers! I hope you’re doing well.

It’s been a few weeks since my last post. I’ve been busy conducting research for the next books I’ll write, in addition to editing and formatting two other books.  Also life’s been busy with work and my mother was hospitalized but is doing much better now.

Today I have some wonderful news. You can now pre-order your ebook copy of my upcoming novel I, Darcy! Since 2013 I’ve worked on this novel and it’s been a long journey that will come to end when both the ebook and print versions of the book are released on October 1st, 2017.

You can pre-order your copy at the Kindle Store and over at Smashwords. The ebook version of the novel costs $2.99, while the print version will be around $8.00.

A few months back I revealed I, Darcy’s cover and premise, but since it’s been a while here’s the cover and premise:

Genre: An alternative historical YA novel.

Teaser:

A sixteen-year-old eidolon girl’s charged in the death of her human bully. Her human step-father volunteers to represent her but they distrust each other. Can they reconcile in time to win the case?

Blurb:

“Society believes I’m disposable. To them I Darcy Mary Elizabeth Munroe am the monster that they’ve seen on TV shows, books, and films brought to life.”

Sixteen-year-old Darcy Munroe enjoys books, music, fashion, and other aspects of pop culture. Unlike most teens, she doesn’t have the privilege of living a normal life due to being born an eidolon. Darcy lives in a world that not only hates and fears her but is edging towards an apocalypse.

When her human bully dies in a school-related incident, Darcy’s charged with their death. With her fate lying in the hands of a human jury, things become more complicated when her human step-dad Eric volunteers to represent her. They don’t trust each other and often butt heads over the human/eidolon conflict. Can Darcy and Eric settle their differences in time?

Sounds awesome right? I’m looking forward to sharing this story with you and I hope you’ll enjoy it. I, Darcy will be out in print and ebook on October 1st.  You can purchase your copy at Amazon.com, Smashwords.com, and BarnesandNoble.com.

I’ll close out this post by thanking those who’ve purchased copies of my previous works including my mermaid fantasy novella Orniainthi. Your support means a lot to me.

I hope your weekend goes well and I send Galactus sized hugs to those you need it. Stayed tuned for more updates and posts! Have a wonderful day and weekend and to those who celebrate, Shabbat Shalom.

Reminder: Orniainthi Virtual Book Release Party Is This Friday

Friday, March 31st marks the print release of my mermaid fantasy novella Orniainthi.  In celebration of my book’s release, I’m inviting you to join me on my Facebook page from 1 to 3 pm eastern time for a Virtual Book Release Party.

About Orniainthi:

An incident during a group dive resigns oceanographer Dr. Viola E. Foy’s to her desk for eight years. That changes when she receives an urgent call from college friend, Dr. Devin Strucker. Now VP of the Future Underwater Colonization Agency (FUCA), they need Foy’s expertise for an exciting sea expedition.  

But the trip isn’t what it appears to be.

Dr. Foy finds herself betrayed and forced to dive into Andros Island’s mysterious Black Hole. There, an accident transforms her, altering her destiny and making her a target for FUCA and the US Navy.

More trouble arrives in the form of FUCA’s mysterious CEO Wendell Normand Galloway.  Re-emerging after years of seclusion, his plans threaten to doom the world to a watery grave.

Can Dr. Foy harness her new abilities, avoid capture and save the world in time?

 

During that time, I’ll discuss the novella and answer questions. There will be giveaways of ebook copies of my previous books and one print copy of Orniainthi. Remember,  to participate in the giveaways, you must like my Facebook page.

Before the party gets started, Advanced Reader Copies (ebook) of my novella are still available at Instafreebie.com (https://instafreebie.com/free/KDuB3) until March 31st.  Readers can also download their free copy of my horror short story and flash fiction collection, A Visit From The Soul Eater until that date.

You can also read the first six chapters of Orniainthi here and check out the novella’s playlist here. 

That’s all for now, hope to see you at the party! Until then take care.
