Guys, I am sooooooooo excited about this book! I think (think being the key word) that it is going to be really good! Now, let's introduce it!
Blurb: (even though it is on the back cover but oh well) (I'll give you the longer blurb as a treat cause I wove y'all :D)
Colm McNulty is fine with the life he has, roaming the land, playing his fiddle, and looking into Rose Kelly's eyes. But his abusive father doesn't feel that way. He forces Colm to America, making him leave everything dear to him behind.
In America, Colm faces hardship and prejudice. When the riots against the Irish workers in New York grow, Colm disappears to the farms in Maine. Even in a rural town, there are still prejudices. Only one farmer offers Colm a job, Brendan Elson. Colm soon finds out that there are a lot of Elson children, and finds himself attracted to the middle girl, Felicity. Felicity has fire in her blood and Colm wonders if he will ever prove himself to her, and everyone else.
Genre: Historical Fiction
Time Period: Second Industrial Revolution/End of the 19th century (1891-1896 are the exact years)
Setting: 50 miles north of Dublin; New York; Murray (fictional town) Maine
So Colm is the MC and everything is in his perspective. This is actually going to be something new for me because I tend to switch POV's.
I FOUND COLM YESTERDAY
I was scrolling for pictures that I did not need for the cover when I found THIS and was like "COLMMMMM"
I AM TOTALLY IN LOVE WITH MY OWN CHARACTER ALRIGHT???
*thinks what else she can say without giving everything away*
YOU KNOW WHAT
LET'S INTRODUCE ANOTHER BOOK OKAY?
So for this one, I've been mostly world-building. And I think I have you give you guys some background info before we continue.
So I've mentioned The Crown of Light and Courage For Those Who Have None. Turns out, they're in a series. WHO KNEW RIGHT??
No judging, Lina.
Anywho, the names of the books in the series are
1. The Scroll of Wisdom
2. Courage For Those Who Have None
3. The Crown of Light
4. To Those Who Are Faithful
5. Finding Honor
You don't actually have read them in order (except for The Crown of Light and To Those Who Are Faithful, you have to read those two in order). They mostly give background info on each other.
The one I'm introducing today is The Scroll of Wisdom. This is about how Ilia Coragis became Myragi and Zirrith.
(like I said, I have basically no plotting done for this because I've been worlding building)
HOLD YOUR HORSES
THERE'S ONE MORE THING I NEED TO EXPLAIN OR ELSE THERE WILL BE SOME CONFUZZLED PEOPLES
Okay *coughs* so, there were originally 5 kingdoms: Ilia Scriptura, Ilia Corona (previously known as Qiliopie-Doijsu), Ilia Fidelitis, Ilia Coragis, and Ilia Honoribus. They each have one magical item.
Ilia Scriptura = The Scroll of Wisdom
Ilia Corona = The Crown of Light
Ilia Fidelitis = The Ring of Faith
Ilia Coragis = The Courage Stone
Ilia Honoribus = The Key of Honor
NOW WE CAN GO ON
Prince Kile of Ilia Scriptura knows that he won't be king, that boring job is left to his older brother. He leads a life of frivolity. But when his brother can't read the Scroll of Wisdom, and he can, everything changes. Suddenly, Kile is expected to sit in councils and be responsible. When he accidentally stops Ilia Fidelitis from plunging into a civil war, Ilia Coragis asks for his help. But they have a different type of unrest.
