– ‘The Magic of Wor(l)ds’ blog is a hobby, reviews and other bookish stuff on this site are done for free. –

Today I’m on the ‘Elladur – The Awakening’ blogtour, organized by Love Books Tour.
To promote this book I have an excerpt, but before I let you read it first some ‘basic’ information.

About the Author :

Writing has always been my passion. As a child, I loved the world of myths and legends and soon I became a fantasy and romance lover. But also the world of philosophy and great secrets have done it to me. I started writing my first stories when I was 13 and returned 8 years ago. I am also a booklover, with reading between 70-100 books yearly.

Synopsis :

Magic – a legacy of the ancient era, created by genetic manipulation. For as long as Liya can remember, her magic has been a curse. Something to hide, something to despise. As king’s spy, she ventures out to uncover more about the political marriage of the hostile kingdom. Her nerves intensify when she realizes that her former lover, Haydn, is to be the future king of Dar’Angaar. With a war between the kingdom hanging in the balance, she and her best friend Ewan discover an ancient scroll from the long-lost kingdom of Elladur. It reveals a mysterious portal to another world, where eternal darkness and a king await his revenge.
Yet, at such a risk, who would do such a thing? The answer might be closer than she realizes.
This fantasy novel is the 1st book of the Elladur trilogy.

Excerpt :

The Book of the Heavens, a work filled with all the knowledge in the world, full of hidden clues and warnings. If they survived that night, their world would be a very different one, one without the technology on which it was all based. Only this book would still exist—and the gifted children, as well as the children of the present rulers. They were all safe in a device, deep under the ground.
Alron flipped the book open and placed his thumb on the jade stone with the dragon engraving. He felt a sharp sting before the droplet of red blood was absorbed in the side. The stone lit up briefly: the signal of successful transmission. However, this process was only a ritual that the rulers performed at every meeting. At the very first ritual the key for decoding the magical protective covers of the book had been stored in the memory of the rulers. Through a similar tradition, this knowledge had been passed on to their children immediately after birth. Only the descendants of the rulers present in the room would be able to access it. For everyone else, it would just be a book with empty pages.
He passed the book to Laron and waited patiently, picking at the wood grain of the table. He shifted in his chair as guilt overcame him. He probably wouldn’t leave this room alive. The candlelight flickered, sharing his sentiment. He’d consulted with Kalden and the scientists, but nothing had changed. They had no choice. If only mankind had never found this rock! A new age had been ushered in, but at what price? He still remembered exactly that day ten years ago, when the ethics council was dismissed. There were riots at his university and massive demonstrations everywhere, but the development could no longer be stopped. Laron returned the book. His face was fiery red, and Alron suspected his condition was a mixture of fear and anger.
“We can’t erase all progress,” Laron hissed.
“That is clear. However, it doesn’t change the decision,” he replied, taking the book and handing it to his faithful friend. “Take it to the secret place! Hurry!”
