Accelerant by Ronie Kendig & Giveaway

Accelerant by Ronie Kendig
The Nine Kingdoms bleed. Leaderless, ravaged, the land awaits deliverance from Poired Dyrth's devastating campaign. But what if one blight can only be cleansed by another?

The promised Fierian is known by many names. Judge. Destroyer. Scourge. And now one other: Haegan, Prince of Seultrie. Once a cripple, now a gifted Accelerant, Haegan can no longer run from the truth. But neither can he be reconciled to it. He knows only one thing for certain: as the only able-bodied heir to the Fire Throne, he must return to the Nine and fight for his people.

But there are insidious forces at work. When reality itself falls into question, Haegan struggles to know where to fight, whom to trust. Caught between duty to his country and duty to the world, Haegan must see clearly enough to choose the right path to save the world.

My Thoughts:
Haegan's epic adventure continues as the writings foretell of a Fierian who will cleanse the realm of the Nine. Action begins on page one as Haegan struggles to deal with the deadly blow Poired has unleashed on him, his family, and the Nine. It's impossible not to be drawn into the story world Ronie Kendig creates with powerful prose that'll kick start your imagination unlike any other story I've encountered. I. Was. Living. The. Story-until the very last page. I was there. Feeling the warble of heat flowing from an embattled son trying to earn his father's love and respect. Feeling the icy chill of the caves where a blossom of love can bloom even in the bleakest conditions. Feeling the camaraderie between a cast of characters that would make Tolkien and Lewis proud. 

Not since Frodo and Sam and the Fellowship or The Pevensie siblings and the Narnians has there been a more magnificent gathering of characters. Often times I'll pick up a story with a wide cast of names but in the end I can't remember a single character. Not so in Accelerant. The way Ms. Kendig breathes life into her characters makes them memorable as soon as they step on stage page. These intricately developed characters and their stories took hold of my heart and have left me in hungered anticipation for the continuation of what their future holds and frankly, that means I'll be holding my breath and stressed until the release of book 3. *sigh*

Accelerant is a meticulously weaved continuation of Embers and delivers a powerful plot threaded intricately around themes of courage, perseverance, insecurity, love, and the pursuit of honor. It's impossible not to hang onto every word until the final, heightened, prophecy delivered at the very end that'll leave you begging for more!

GIVEAWAY!!!
