Today on my blog I have The Eye of Tanub blog tour. On my stop there is a spotlight, review, excerpt, and giveaway.
Everyone thinks she’s crazy. And maybe she is. But Lauren Marriott knows her journey into Terratir happened. It was real, and she’s writing all down in frightening detail.
She has no patience for her brother Zach and his passion for stupid computer games until she finds a mysterious pendant in his room, pulsating with magical power. Lauren wants it, not realizing it’s a portal between this world and one of monsters, sorcerers, and dangerous quests.
Never in her wildest dreams could she have imagined what she’d find in the terrifying world of The Warlord—death at every turn, but also a love stronger than time itself.
In order to escape Terratir, Lauren, Zach, and their new found friends, must complete the impossible quest for the Eye of Tanúb, a relic of immense power, which The Warlord has already stolen for himself.
I stayed close to the wall, my eyes wide, my heart racing in fright. Okay. This could not possibly be real. I was dreaming. I was in a coma or unconscious, just like I thought. Before us were beings I'd only seen on TV. Beings with green skin and others with horns, some with long, pointed ears. I called them “people” for lack of a better word, but they weren't people. They were monsters and elves, human-like animals who could talk, and aliens. Some were short and squat, dragging their hands on the ground. One monster had a large snout and black shaggy hair covering its entire body.
“What is that thing?” I asked, shrinking back behind Zach, hoping he could protect me.
“Him? He's a werewolf. He works in a pastry house. I remember him from the game. What's his name again?” Zach snapped his fingers, thinking.
Scowling, I said, “How should I know? Don't werewolves kill people? Shouldn't everyone be afraid or running away screaming? Why are these monsters walking around free?”
I loved this book so much! It was like an 80’s movie which I love so I was hooked from page one and couldn’t stop reading until the very last page.
The dynamic of the brother and sister are just awesome. I loved them. They were written so well that I couldn’t help feel like I was in the story with them. My other favorite thing about this book is all the creatures and the things they could do. This is a fast read and even though it’s for the younger side of YA I think anybody will be able to enjoy this world and get completely swept up in it. I can’t wait for more in this series. 4/5 Bloody Fangs
M.E. Cunningham came from a land, far, far away, and ended up on a little farm in northern Utah, living with numerous magical creatures: horses, chickens, dogs, cats, and a goat. Cunningham began writing quite by accident, the fall through the fabric of time dropped M.E. into the mysterious land of Terratir.
Terratir is not the first magical realm Cunningham has discovered, but it is the only one to be written about so far. Favorite topics include ghosts, monsters, dragons, and magic. Cunningham also likes TV, going to the movies, and camping in the mountains as long as there are no spiders, mosquitoes, or ticks.
Cunningham’s first book, Reluctant Guardian, was published in August 2013. While always in search of the strange and unexplainable, this author will write each story as it is discovered. Be on the look out!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I would also like to say Thank You to M.E. for letting me review your book and say Thank You to Jaidis for letting me participate in this blog tour. Don't forget to enter the giveaway below.
