Blog Tour: Colour Wielders

New Adult/Paranormal Romance/ Urban Fantasy Romance
Date Published: 4/19/2013

Behind the Faerying Mysts, hidden from Mortal eyes, is a land where gods and creatures of myth and legend dwell. And in the Mortal Realm, their Princess is hidden away.
Quinn Sinclair lives an ordinary life with her less-than-loving mother in Conifer, Colorado, clueless of her true nature. On the night of her birthday, a staggering betrayal sends her life spinning out-of-control. As she struggles to pick up the pieces, a vision of a man with haunting tourmaline-blue eyes begs her for help, and she is transported into a Magykal battle-forever changing her life.
Arik Morgaine-Demigod bad boy and outcast of the Magykal Realm-tried to avoid contact with Princess Quinn for eighteen years, not wanting to make good on an old threat. But the fates have other plans. Arik can no longer deny his growing desire for Quinn, or the need to protect her from those wanting to control her burgeoning powers. Can the two of them come together and save the Magykal Realm from being destroyed by the Darkest of Magyks?


I liked that the author is taking the New Adult Genre craze to a new level with adding in the Fantasy. With so many New Adult books out right now, I really felt like this one was fresh.

Quinn's character is kind of hard to get behind in this. I wasn't completely sold on her connections with those around her and sometimes that frustrated me, but she really did grow on me in the end and I think the character development and her evolution as a character was a great part of the story. 

There are a lot of parts to this story. At times it can feel a little bogged down, but that happens sometimes when an author is trying to introduce the reader into a new world. This is a new series and the future books wont need as much explaining, so I am interested to see how everything will unfold. I think this book has some definite high points and the series has great potential.

Dawna Raver is an author of paranormal romance and urban fantasy. Colour Wielders, book one of the Heirs of the Magykal Realm series, is her debut novel. When she's not spending time in her fantasy world, Dawna loves football, reading, and pretending she's a top chef in the kitchen. Oh, and fawning over her dogs and husband, sometimes in that order.
