If you have not yet read Jenelle's books, you should naturally feel a deep and crippling sense of shame. Like I do. OH, THE GUILT. But, in my defense, I have recently begun reading Book 1 in the series, King's Warrior, and I'm loving it so far. I will, of course, post a review of the series on this blog, so keep an eye out for that in the near future!
And now for the synopsis of Minstrel's Call. Cue epic trailer music.
War threatens. The game board is set. But the Minstrel is missing…
Advancing his growing power, the Dread Prince breaks free of his prison and brings a faction of dragons under his control, stirring unrest and hatred in the newly united kingdoms of Tellurae Aquaous.
When the dragon wards of Kallayohm are targeted in a ruthless attack, the High King travels there to administer justice. But the trial results in a crippling blow that leaves him reeling.
On the heels of defeat, an unexpected message from the erstwhile Minstrel arrives, pleading with his friends for rescue. Together, the High King and his companions must follow the fragile trail, braving peril and darkness that will test the measure of them all…
Ta-da. Gorgeous, isn't it? Also, please note the mention of dragons. Clearly, you must begin reading this series as soon as is humanly possible.
Some more about Jenelle:
Jenelle Schmidt grew up in the northern-Midwest. She now resides with her husband and their four adorable children in the wilds of Wisconsin. Jenelle fell in love with reading at a young age during family story-times when her father would read out loud to her and her siblings each night before bed. Her imagination was captured by authors such as Madeleine L’Engle, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Lloyd Alexander. It wasn’t long before she began making up her own stories and sharing them with her family. To this day she enjoys creating exciting adventure tales filled with poignant themes and compelling characters in the fantasy and sci-fi genres.
Minstrel's Call will be available on February 28, and can be pre-ordered now. Be sure to catch up on the previous books in the series so that you're all ready for the final adventure! And here are some links to where you can find Jenelle on the internet:
