Erinsmore by Julia Blake

20180909_144908.jpgErinsmore is the 7th book release from indie author, Julia Blake. With its release back in May, it has been one fantasy I was itching to dive into. This is one author who never fails to deliver, with release after release, she’s a prolific force to be reckoned with.

So… Are you ready for a quest? Prepared to be carried off on an adventure of a lifetime? A tale of magic, good versus evil, epic battles? This is a tale with its inspiration firmly planted in Arthurian legend, with a quest and mythical creatures to delight even the most discerning Narnia fan. Then sit back and step inside the pages of Erinsmore.

Unsuspecting sisters, whilst on a family holiday to Cornwall find themselves stepping into another world. One of magic, swordplay, legend, chivalry, love, and a host of evil to match… But with a prophecy that will change the lives of young Ruby and her older, more cynical sister, Cassie, forever.

Two shall fight for freedom 
Defend the dragon’s throne
Two shall walk the dark path
And one return alone

The fate of Erinsmore lays at their feet. They cannot ignore, refuse or forget its plight for the fate of our own world is in danger.

This book delivers it all. Once you open the book you are quickly enticed into the pages, being carried off into Ruby and Cassie’s adventure in one massive leap, making Erinsmore an addictive page-turner.

Don’t be misled, although the author was obviously inspired by the likes of C.S Lewis (what fantasy writer isn’t), Erinsmore is in no way a pastiche or rework. The world of Erinsmore, and all those who dwell within its pages, good and evil, are unique, well-formed, credible, and spellbinding.

With the author’s effortless writing style, she lures you into this new world, so you settle there as if there is nothing fantasy about it; a clever ability, allowing the reader to be utterly transported.

Erinsmore, though may fall into the YA fiction genre, delivers so much more than you may first expect. There is nothing immature about this book, in peril or plot. The author has in no way simplified or altered her craft for the younger reader, the prose is clear, clever, artistic and beautifully crafted for the adult reader, fulfilling all the requirements for a fantasy adventure for all ages. For the young curious minds, it offers to nurture and cultivate, no doubt feeding a new generation of fantasy readers with a lifelong love of swords & chivalry, as once Lewis himself did.

This is another triumphant novel from Julia Blake, a step away from her, till now, normal genre of contemporary and romantic suspense, and she seems very at home here. Though, we have experienced a taste of this world-building creativity in Eclairs of Tea, her collection of short stories and poems.

Her writing speaks volumes of how natural, how very at ease she feels within the realms of knights and dragons. I have a feeling Erinsmore will settle Julia Blake fast and firm into the fantasy genre, I for one can’t wait to read what’s next. It’s no surprise that Erinsmore deserves no less than 5 Stars!

You can follow Julia Blake at her website, social media, as well as finding all her books at Amazon.

Spread some Christmas magic…

What’s on your Christmas list?

1512648235007

I can truly say what a wonderful year this has been. I’ve received so much support, friendship, book-love and fans for all my books, and I’m feeling incredibly blessed.

I’m not normally one to harp on about book reviews, but I thought, as it’s Christmas if anyone would like to bestow a few words in the form of a review, I would be forever grateful for the gift.

Book reviews really can be a lifeline for an Independent Author… we are in control of all our marketing and promotion. A simple book review can make the world of difference, after all, word of mouth recommendations are worth their weight in gold!

The past few months have been rather busy, and with the release of Daughters of the Oak, the Halloween period certainly sparked a rush! As we cosy ourselves in the enchantment of the festive season, Remember to Love Me has certainly been the book of choice.

So, if you would like to leave a few words, for any of my books, please do. You can leave a book review on Goodreads and wherever you purchase from – kindle, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Book Depository.

Thank you, Becky 😊
