Blood Prophecy: Queen's Ascension
by Barb Jones

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:   Paranormal

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

When the darkness was compelling and the heart knew no bounds, was there really a right choice? With Michael's life hanging in the balance, Amber had a choice: save her star-fated love or keep on the crusade to unite the magical community. For Amber, her fate was sealed even before her birth and it was her destiny to fight the great battle ahead of her. But, when it came to her heart — her friends, her great love — Amber's torn. Not only was she the Queen, but she was a human in every sense of the word. She was vulnerable. And so the very people — Chloe and Michael — that gave her strength, quickly became her weakness. It wasn't her fault she loved too much, was it?

Nevertheless, the Tall Dark Man had set a plan in motion that could threaten the very existence of the Blood Prophecy. Would he gather his dark forces and succeed in destroying Amber once and for all? Or, would she assemble her powerful friends and save the world?

EXCERPT:

One night when he was making his rounds in the forest to see if he could find any scraps tourists left behind when camping, he heard a soft whisper.

“Briar….”

He stilled at the sound of his name, and turned around to see no one or nothing in sight.

He was alone.

In the dark.

So, he crouched down and continued to shine the flashlight.

“…Hexham.”

He stopped once more and looked over his shoulder. His forehead crinkled with lines of confusion. “Hexham? Who the hell is Hexham?” His voice was thick with an English accent.

The bodiless voice laughed, and the closer he listened, the more definite the voice became. A woman’s voice spoke to him loud and clear, as if she were standing right in front having a conversation with him.

Briar’s voice quivered, partly from fear and partly from fascination. “Who are you? Where are you?”  He shined the flashlight but saw nothing. Complete darkness and trees, that was it.

The woman’s voice laughed mockingly in return. “Who I am is not important—for now. But I am everywhere and nowhere, all the same.”

As the voice spoke, Briar felt a sense of ease overwhelm his body. The fear and anxiety dissipated. For the first time in his life, he felt like he belonged, truly and deeply, just by the sound of her voice.

“You do belong. We are family, a family of witches. The most powerful to have walked the earth. We lost you, but now you are found.”

He looked out to no one in particular, but his shock was evident. “Witches? That’s ludicrous.”

AUTHOR Interview:

How did you come up with the title of your book or series?
The story line was a dream that starts with Queen’s Destiny.  Because I wanted a Queen to unite the races, I came up with the path that would be most fulfilling to achieve her rise to the be the perfect Queen.  She has to learn her destiny, followed by the second book that introduces the Enemies in more detail, and finally, how she ascends to her destiny in Queen’s Ascension.


Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular image?
My covers are all done by Steven J. Catizone.  He’s an amazing artist and I just felt like his style, his work would do the series justice.  In fact, he creates the characters from a limited description but enough to bring them to life.  I have this approach to empower people and I believe so much in creativity, that I let him bring the words to life.


How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
Through social media, www.thebloodprophecy.com, barb@thebloodprophecy.net or Jessica@thebloodprophecy.net


What can we expect from you in the future?
I have recently announced that the series is not ending.  There will be a Book Four: Rise of The Hunter and the beloved characters are moving from Seattle to Hawaii.


Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?
For other writers, I would honestly say never give up.  Everyone has a story to tell, it’s just a matter of putting pen to paper!

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

I was born in Hawaii, a place rich with culture and storytellers. As a little girl, scary tales about vampires, werewolves, angels, demons, and witches were my favorite kind — much to my mother's dismay.

The scarier, the better.

My love for the supernatural never went away, even after moving to Seattle, far from Hawaii's majestic beaches with unusual colors. Nothing compares to the landscapes of Maui, Lanai, or Oahu. But somehow, Seattle stole my heart anyway. It became the place where my love for stories took on a new form, in a book of my own: The Adventures of Little Arthur and Merlin the Magnificent. This book is for kids who love stories, just like I did.

Then I had an idea while sleeping. 

One night, my mind began to work overtime. In a dream, I saw a unique storyline involving all the races and an epic battle of good versus evil. It was a modern day plot with a three thousand year old prophecy, The Blood Prophecy. I finished the first book in 2014, The Queen's Destiny. Two years later, I released The Queen's Enemy. The last book in the series, The Queen's Ascension, released on August 17, 2020.

Today, I live in Florida with its beaches and sunshine. But I'm still a Seattle girl at heart. And so all my stories take place in the Northwest.
I always keep to my roots when I write.
