About the Book
Title: Gossamer: The Chronicles of Eledon Book 3
Author: Joni Parker
Genre: Epic Fantasy
Lady Alexin, Eledon’s Keeper of the Keys must continue to prove her powers when her grandmother, Lady Lestin and her friend, Lady Opaline of the Gossamer Elves are kidnapped by rebels and held for ransom. Alex attempts a daring rescue, only to discover that there is far more to this plot that she immediately suspected and the betrayal extends to the highest levels of the High Council of Elders. Threatened by rebel factions, suspected by Council members and under attack by deadly spiders, the young warrior has only her wits, her fighting skills and the powers of the Keys to help her. But will they be enough to save them all?
When I was younger, I never knew what I wanted to be when I grew up. Part of my reason for dropping out of college was because I didn’t know what to major in. I was envious of my sister who knew from an early age, she was going to major in math. Good for her, but math was the last subject on my mind. I joined the Navy and found a track I liked. I became a photographer. I covered local news items, accidents, and even shot portraits. It was fun, but not a career path. When I got out of the Navy, I wanted to finish college but I was lost again. What to major in? I chose accounting because all businesses needed it and I went on to get my Bachelor’s and an MBA. After working in the field for a year, I went back in the Navy and asked for any assignment other than accounting. It worked. After 22 years in the Navy, I retired. My husband and I moved into our motorhome and hit the road. Unfortunately, he passed away and I went back to work at a government job. Then I found writing. I hadn’t written a thing since I was 14 but I was smitten by the bug and have been writing ever since. “Gossamer” is the sixth book I’ve had published and is the third book in a four book series, “The Chronicles of Eledon.” Hope you enjoy it. I had fun writing it.
When asked about this tour I was like "huh sounds strange never heard of Gossamer let alone know what that means,' so I told Ms. Majanka bring it on, I'd like to do a review. Now imagine I had no idea what it was about so imagine my surprise at the fact that this book is about Elves!
I have not read the first two books (I'm already on it, I promise!) Back to the book!
As I have said, I did not read the first two books, but thankfully even though the author builds up to this book I was not completely lost on what was going on. Our lead character Alexin is this warrior, half mortal, half elf, and somewhere in the mix is Titan. Is it me or did Hercules just get voted off Survial Island? Alexin can fight, she is learning how to survive her heritage (aren't we all?) and somewhere in there not only does someone want her dead but Alexin must also fix the enterance to Seaward Isle and Eledon. She is only eighteen, all of her counter parts are at least one thousand years old. Talk about serious stress!
I could not put this book down and I am going to go back to the begining to get the whole wonderful story! I give this book five pots of gold out of five! I'm addicted and I can't wait for more to come.
