Bound by Prophecy & Author, Melissa Wright: Playlist & Dream Cast


First off, I have to thank Melissa Wright for appearing on my blog, today. This author is one of my heroes and has helped me understand the writing world since I came on the scene. She's one to watch, peeps. Here's a little about her latest novel, and reason for visiting today:

Synopsis via Goodreads:

Twenty-two-year-old Aern is done watching his brother destroy the only thing that matters. He never wanted to take Morgan's place among council, never wanted to rule their hidden world. But when the key to the prophecy is found, a young girl named Brianna whom Morgan will destroy, Aern knows he has to take action. What he really wants is for things to go back to normal. But now he’s kidnapped a girl, and his brother's men are after him. His only hope is to join with the Division, but they have plans of their own, and it's the last thing Aern is willing to do. Emily just wants her sister back. She doesn't care about the prophecy, or know what's at stake. But when she goes after Aern, the truth of the matter uncoils, and Brianna isn't the only one who's in danger. Suddenly, they’re at the center of a secret war, and unless they can work together, they'll both have a sacrifice too big to make.

Released: April 19th 2013

  1. I'm loving the dream cast & looking forward to a great read.

    1. Glad you enjoyed, Mary :D It really is a fun, quick-paced read.

  2. Awesome playlist & dream cast! Thanks for participating!

    1. Thanks Shane! Thanks for allowing me to host Melissa. I love all her work and this series was so fun for me. We also had fun brainstorming on this one a bit ;)

  3. Okay, now that I've seen the "cast" all together, I want the movie. lol And that's totally going to be the Logan expression I picture when I'm writing him now. Nailed it. Thanks so much for the post and the kind words, Jenn!

    1. Haha I know me too! Yeah the one I had of Logan at first was good but didn't fit with the others or his character as much I felt. So I found that other one. I kind of see him as the "Wolverine" of the bunch so I wanted to find that "tough & unapproachable" look ;) And you're very welcome for your much deserved praise!
