Book Love Friday: The Rise of Aredor and The Wildcat of Braeton (Blog Tour)

Happy Friday, friends!

Now you know my usual introduction to almost every post is how I’m excited for that post. (I promise I mean it every time!) Well, today is no exception because today is Book Love Friday! *throws confetti*

This week is slightly a little different because I reviewed two books for a blog tour and I’m so thankful I did (despite the fear of thinking I wouldn’t be able to finish on time)! Both were great reads and was like taking a fresh breath of air with all the action.

What two books am I talking about?

Let me gladly present Claire Banschbach’s novels, The Rise of Aredor and The Wildcat of Braeton! (Be forewarned that the fangirling is strong in my video below. *winks*)

About the Books

Lost in a foreign land and separated from his family, Corin does his best to survive as a slave in the household of a Calorin lord. With newfound friends he fights for survival in ambushes and wars. For one act of bravery, he is awarded his freedom and returns to a home that has been invaded and ravaged by the Calorin armies. When Corin sets foot on Aredor’s shores, he has one goal in mind: find his family. He is driven into the forest, where he is reunited with childhood friends. From the shelter of the woods, they begin a spirited rebellion against Corin’s former cruel master, who now holds sway over Aredor. Follow Corin’s path in his quest to free his imprisoned brother, find a father who has vanished, and ultimately free his country in The Rise of Aredor.

His term of service to Lord Rishdah now complete, Aiden returns to his home in Braeton. As he travels he hears rumors that trouble plagues Braeton. Clan Canich is being attacked from within. He arrives, determined to save his father, his brothers, and his Clan from the treachery of one man.

A year has passed since the Calorins were driven from Aredor and Corin is struggling to rebuild his country. Despite the peace, a fear haunts him that the Calorins aren’t far away. The Hawk Flight takes to the forest again to defend the borders against a possible attack from the neighboring country of Durna and its Calorin ally.

As Aiden and Corin struggle to adapt to their new lives they know one thing for certain – war is coming to the North!
