Hey, all, it’s Alexa, and I am thrilled to be a part of the blog tour for Rage of the Dragon King by J. Keller Ford. I was on the blog tour for the first book a little over a year ago, and it was such an amazing and exciting story that when I heard the second one was coming out, I practically leapt at the chance to get my hands on it. 😀
Without further ado, I introduce to you Rage of the Dragon King.
Rage of the Dragon King (The Chronicles of Fallhollow #2)
by J. Keller Ford
Publication Date: October 24, 2017
David and Charlotte paid their dues. They traveled to another realm, battled the Dragon King, recovered the all important magic key to the mage tunnels, and found the heir to the throne of Hirth, as promised. Now it’s time to go home. There’s just one problem: the powerful crystals needed to activate the tunnels have been stolen…and David’s parents have mysteriously disappeared along with them. Guess who’s not going home to Havendale anytime soon.
Eric Hamden, squire extraordinaire, survived the poisonous knick of a shadowmorth’s blade, rescued the king of Hirth from the bowels of the dragon’s lair, and confronted a heartbreaking betrayal that nearly got him killed. Still reeling from the news, Eric sets his sights on a daring rescue only to wind up in a prison of his own with David and Charlotte at his side. But rescues come in strange ways, and before they know it, the three end up in David’s hometown of Havendale…and Eric gets a quick schooling in Modern Life 101. He’d rather fight a dragon.
With secrets, lies and betrayals meeting them at every turn, David, Charlotte and Eric soon discover that Havendale isn’t the sanctuary they’d hoped for. Even their best-laid plans can’t prepare them for the danger that stalks them. This time, no amount of magic or prayers can save them. War has been declared, and in the final battle, someone must make the ultimate sacrifice. Let the battle begin.
I’m about 2/3 of the way thorough, and I’m tellin’ you, this book is so good. There are so many plot twists, and the action is epic, and these characters are just something else, basically the definition of complex, real people. I have no idea how it’s going to end, lol, but I know that it’s been an exciting and dramatic ride so far, and that I have really enjoyed it. 😀
And as a special treat today, we have the author of this amazing book here with us to share about her top ten favorite movies. Take it away, Mrs. Ford!
J. (Jenny) Keller Ford is a scribbler of speculative fiction and YA tales. As an Army brat, she traveled the world and wandered the halls of some of Germany’s most extraordinary castles in hopes of finding snarky dragons, chivalrous knights, and wondrous magic to permeate her imagination. What she found remains etched in her topsy-turvy mind and oozes out in sweeping tales of courage, sacrifice, honor and everlasting love.
When not torturing her keyboard or trying to silence the voices in her head, Jenny spends time collecting seashells, bowling, screaming on roller coasters and traveling. She is a mom to four magnificent and noble offspring and currently lives in paradise on the west coast of Florida with a menagerie of royal pets, and her own quirky knight who was brave enough to marry her.
Published works include The Passing of Millie Hudson, a paranormal short story that can be found in READING GLASSES. IN THE SHADOW OF THE DRAGON KING is her debut novel and the first installment in the Chronicles of Fallhollow Trilogy. Book 2 in the series is slated for Fall 2016.
Top 10 Favorite Movies
I’m a sucker for movies. I like them all: adventure, drama, Disney (yes, it gets a category all to itself), romantic comedy. I’m not into horror or erotica, though, so you won’t see any of those kinds of films on my top ten list. I’m more of a down to earth, clean, family fun movie kind of gal.
So, what movies top my Top Ten List? Here you go, pretty much in order:
- My Fair Lady (that gown, folks! Rex Harrison. Audrey Hepburn. The music. *sigh*)
- It’s a Wonderful Life
- Independence Day
- While You Were Sleeping
- Real Steel
- Mary Poppins
- The Princess Bride
- Men in Tights
- Lord of The Rings: The Two Towers – tied with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Of course, I have many more faves but these are films I never get tired of.
What are your favorites?
Yes, I love The Princess Bride! And Up and LOTR are both great movies. My personal favorite is the Star Wars saga, especially Revenge of the Sith. I’m kind of a sucker for fantasy and sci-fi, you guys. 😉
Hope you all enjoyed the post! And don’t forget to check out the other stops on the tour!
