Hail Frost: Just Some More Info

I sat here, staring at my blinking cursor, trying to think of something to blog about when I had a very awkward revelation. 

I have hardly shared anything regarding Hail Frost. Oops. 

Well, I've shared my complaints about editing, but I've not told you anything about the story. I feel rather ashamed right now. 

So! Without further ado, allow me to introduce two of the new characters that play a role in Hail Frost!

Commander Valin

Valin looks like Jamie Dornan


Valin is a mysterious explorer with a knack for manipulation, political subtlety, battle strategies, and organized chaos. After Sicreet's death, he masterfully takes control of the Pull and begins to destroy everything Sicreet had created. The people love him, but after trying to blackmail Hail into abandoning Elethor and Holdinus, it's obvious Valin has a plan of his own...one the Leverage probably won't like.

Dray Thorn

Dray looks like Donald Faison

Once upon a time, Dray was the only friend Ember had. The two of them felt like it was them versus the rest of the loggers of Grel. But one day, Dray disappeared and Ember had no idea what happened to him. Now he's suddenly back and he knows everything about the Leverage, the Pull, and the world. Ember is determined to find out what happened to him when he went missing, and who exactly he is working for.

Not very good introductions, but I'm tired and hungry, so it will have to do. Here's some random images I've found on Pinterest that might give you a clue to the feel and look of the story.






And finally, the rough draft of the summary that will appear on the back of the book. I know it needs work, so if you have any suggestions for it, I'd love to hear 'em! :)

***

 After defeating the Pull Lord and finding the other Leverage, Hail thought the stormy clouds of his past would vanish. Instead, he finds himself traipsing through the countryside with his annoying brother while searching for the mysterious lost Leverage. When his temper flares and he delves back into his deadly habits, Valin, the new Pull Lord, gives Hail an ultimatum: Give up the search and be free from his past, or continue and place everyone he loves in mortal danger.

The only way to escape the challenge is to recover the lost Leverage and begin the war against the Pull. But with his sister the focus of Valin's wrath; his best friend in the hands of a witch; and his brother questioning his every decision- concentration is difficult. Will Hail relent the quest to free himself of his guilt? Or will he fight the Pull, despite the danger to himself and those he loves?

Thanks for stopping by!
