I am so excited because RIVEN, book two in The Relic Trilogy is out in ONE WEEK. What is life? I’ve been frantically working away at edits for book three that it kind of snuck up on me. Book one, Relic, came out last year and now it is time for the adventure to continue.
Already I’ve received some wonderful reviews from advanced readers and I must say that it makes my day to read them. I write as much for my readers as I do for myself. I want to create stories my readers love, so when I see that I have… well, life is complete.
If you haven’t read Relic yet, be warned: there be spoilers ahead!
The lovely Jodie at The AU Review had this to say:
“Riven picks up exactly where the first in YA fantasy series Relic, left off, barrelling along at the same merry pace that made the final act of its predecessor so exciting… Once again, blacksmith-turned-powerful-magic-wielder Kaylan shines. She’s fleshed out magnificently throughout.”
How nice is that?! Read the full review here.
Here is what other people have to say so far about Riven:
“Strong characters, a heroine with grit and an incredible world melds together into a non-stop, high octane fantasy that will have readers mesmerized from start to finish. Bronwyn Eley holds nothing back, not the danger, the intrigue, the machinations or the fear that Kaylan must keep at bay.” – Dianne, Goodreads
“I absolutely loved Relic and Riven was just as brilliant! This is an incredible series and I don’t know why there’s not more hype surrounding it. With incredible writing, plot twists that had me on the edge of my seat, brilliant characters and intense action, The Relic Trilogy contains everything I want in a book.” – Jenny, Goodreads
“Loved every moment of this! From page one, it sucks you in and doesn’t let go. Rourke was my new fave character – loved how he and Kaylan bonded throughout the book. Of course, will always love Markus and Shae as well. The plot twists in Riven kept me up at night. Highly recommended!” – Dave, Goodreads
Since COVID has kind of screwed everything up, I’m not having a book launch this year. However, I’ve decided to host an Instagram live at 5:30pm AEST Thursday 13th August (release day!) and hope you will join me. If you have any questions you want to ask, you can shoot me a message on Instagram.
If you loved Relic, don’t forget you can leave a review for me (coz, clearly, I LOVE reviews lol) on Amazon, Goodreads, social media… wherever you’d like! Plus, you can now add Riven to your Goodreads TBR list.
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend and keep reading!
