The Hidden Sun by J, Lloyd Morgan - Book Blog Tour Stop
I'm so pleased to introduce you to a wonderful new book, The Hidden Sun by J. Lloyd Morgan. This richly woven tale of romance and intrigue is a beautifully told by a master storyteller.
About The Book:
The kingdom of Bariwon is at a crossroads. Ever since Eliana was born, she has been primed to become the kingdom's leader. But she is not to rule Bariwon alone. A contest of sorts, called the Shoginoc, is to be held when Eliana turns twenty one. The victor gains the right to marry Eliana and become king of Bariwon. Rumor has it that the favorite to win the Shoginoc is Daimh, son of malevolent Governor Abrecan. However, Eliana has fallen in love with her personal guardian, Rinan. She is torn between renouncing her title to be with the man she loves or marrying to keep the kingdom out of the hands of those who would rule it unjustly. A plan is hatched to keep her in power while allowing her to marry Rinan, but little does she know the impact this deception will have on everyone in Bariwon for years to come.
"The Hidden Sun" is a delicately crafted fairy tale that both adults and young adults will find charming and intriguing. With just the right elements of romance, adventure, suspense and, of course, a happy-ever-after ending, this classicly=told tale is a refreshing change of pace in a world that today is so overwrought with troubles and woe.
As the father of four daughters, J. Lloyd Morgan must have had some special insight to the world he has created in this very special book. It is a enchanting novel guaranteed to please the most finicky princess in the castle, a story for girls, young and old, to enjoy and savor for years to come.
