Today I'm really excited to be taking part in the blog tour to celebrate the release of Kristen Ciccarelli's debut novel The Last Namsara. This is a book I've been dying to read ever since I first heard about it (watch out for my review coming soon!) so I'm really happy to have a fabulous guest post from Kristen to share with you today. Before we get to that let me give you some information about the book!
Destroyer. Death bringer. Dragon-slayer. I am more weapon than girl.
Asha is a dragon-slayer. Reviled by the very people she's sworn to protect, she kills to atone for the wicked deed she committed as a child - one that almost destroyed her city, and left her with a terrible scar.
But protecting her father's kingdom is a lonely destiny: no matter how many dragons she kills, her people still think she's wicked.
Even worse, to unite the fractured kingdom she must marry Jarek, the cruel commandant. As the wedding day approaches, Asha longs for freedom.
Just when it seems her fate is sealed, the king offers her a way out: her freedom in exchange for the head of the most powerful dragon in Firgaard.
And the only person standing in her way is a defiant slave boy . . .
THE LAST NAMSARA is an extraordinary story about courage, loyalty and star-crossed love, set in a kingdom that trembles on the edge of war.
This is the first book in the Iskari series and you can find out more on Kristen Ciccarelli's website here.
I thought you might be interested in these videos I found too, this first one is of Kristen talking about the story behind The Last Namsara:
And here's the official book trailer:
