I know that if you hang out around my blog you probably like reading, or maybe music… hopefully both. In the spirit of encouraging the former, I’m going to shine my spotlight on fellow Kristell Ink author, C. N. Lesley’s recently released title Darkspire Reaches.
Here’s the good stuff:
Her birth mother left her as a sacrifice to the Wyvern, believing a second born twin had no soul.
Her foster mother thought Raven possessed the magic of the First born. She believed she raised a slave.
The emperor of all the lands believed she knew the secret of his birth and that he must silence her.
Her tribe thought they could trade her for safe passage out of the emperor’s lands.
The Wyvern knows better. He is coming for her. His fury has no limits.
Raven always knew nobody wanted her: Her own mother abandoned her as baby for a wyvern sacrifice. Saved by a local witch to a hard life of labor, Raven always fears a wyvern would hunt her. And when one does he takes her to the mountain aerie of Darkspire Reaches, where she encounters the mighty Drakken lord. Apart from being handsome and powerful, Connor is the most arrogant, self-centered, difficult man Raven has ever encountered. Instant power battles ensue leading to a sparkling love/hate relationship.

About the author:
Elizabeth Hull, writing under the by line of C.N.Lesley, lives in Alberta with her husband and cats. Her three daughters live close by. When she isn’t writing, Elizabeth likes to read and to paint watercolors. She is also a keen gardener, despite the very short summers and now has a mature shade garden. Once a worker in the communications sector, mostly concentrating on local news and events, she now writes full time.
The by line comes about because there is a very nice lady fantasy writer already published who uses Elizabeth’s legal name.
All Elizabeth’s cats are rescue adoptions. Her current boy was days away from being euthanized, as he was deemed too sick to adopt. The cat recovered within hours of being brought home.
She was senior managing editor of FlashMe Magazine and now is assistant flash fiction editor for Abyss and Apex. http://www.abyssapexzine.com/
