HB: Hi, nice people. As you all can see, my pansy-brother is pooped out again. He actually walked a whole block this morning.
SPAL: ***he waves** Hello, nice people. ***he yawns***
HB: See. So I'm in charge of today's post. I wanted to share something that I found in Mummsy's garden. And to be honest, I don't know how it got there. It's a mystery. ***he scratches behind his ear***
HB: Mummsy says it's the bookcover to M.J. Fifield's first novel soon to be released. I'd like to hug that girl's leg on it. She sure is purdy.
Anyway, here's the blurb, author, and other information:
The survival of a once-mighty kingdom rests in the hands of its young queen, Haleine Coileáin, as it slowly succumbs to an ancient evil fueled by her husband’s cruelty.
A sadistic man with a talent for torture and a taste for murder, he is determined to burn the land and all souls within. Haleine is determined to save her kingdom and, after a chance encounter, joins forces with the leader of the people’s rebellion. She gives him her support, soon followed by her heart.
Loving him is inadvertent but becomes as natural and necessary as breathing. She lies and steals on his behalf, doing anything she can to further their cause. She compromises beliefs held all her life, for what life will exist if evil prevails?
Her journey leads to a deceiving world of magic, monsters, and gods she never believed existed outside of myth. The deeper she goes, the more her soul is stripped away, but she continues on, desperate to see her quest complete. If she can bring her husband to ruin and save her people, any sacrifice is worth the price—even if it means her life.
