Wow! What an awesome and exciting tour this has been! Did you miss an interview or book review?
No worries! Below is a short recap of all the fun reviews, guest posts, and interviews (with links).
First up, we think J.L. Mbewe chose one of the juiciest excerpts she could find to share with readers. It’s chilling. It’s leaving you on edge. It’s a must read. If you want to read it and see what I mean, it’s over on Sparks of Ember!
Who loves a good interview about why an author chose the story they did and/or genre? Mbewe is answering a few questions over on Kathrese McKee’s blog about that today and loved her response in if her story has a unique setting.
This post about the music of Nalü from Curse Bound was so much fun to read! It includes videos of how the music sounds and really brings this story world to life. The Artist Librarian shares all the different musical tastes of Nalü’s world!
A great interview with Mbewe sharing about some her writing challenges of Curse Bound on The Heart of a Scribe! We’re so glad that she didn’t give up writing this story! It’s an excellent finale to her Hidden Dagger Trilogy and one we’re grateful to be in the world. If you’re struggling in your writing or feeling alone, this could be an encouraging post for you!
This is another super fun post about Mbewe’s story world! The Maze was an intriguing place readers visited and thrilled to hear more about it in her interview on Fairies, Fantasy, and Faith! (Plus, she’s sharing about The Blue-Fire Sea Cave too, which is equally intriguing!)
When an author says they designed their characters as My Little Ponies, Unicorn Quester is 1000% in. Thankfully, J. L. Mbewe was kind of enough to share her drawings! They are stunning!
An awesome review of The Hidden Dagger Trilogy by The Quirky Book Nerd! The best part? It’s all spoiler-free! If you’ve been looking for an epic fantasy series to dive into, this is a perfect review in why you should consider this trilogy!
Now that Curse Bound has offiaclly released, are you wondering what Mbewe is working on? If you’re wanting to hear more about her Hidden Dagger trilogy, no worries because she’s sharing about that too in her interview with Elisabeth Wheatley!
A fantastic review of Curse Bound by Jessica Belmont! Also, do you like reading about elves? If so, Jessica mentions a certain elf being her favorite!
Excuse us while we go fangirl because this is an excellent interview between Kael from J. L. Mbewe’s Curse Bound and Jenelle Leanne Schmidt! Get to know the world of Curse Bound better as well as Kael the amazing elf!
Wrapping up the tour, have you been increasingly intrigued by J. L. Mbewe’s Curse Bound, but haven’t read the first two books (even though you want to read it)? Great news! She Hearts Fiction is giving away an e-copy of your choice from The Hidden Dagger Trilogy! (Also, it’s open INT!)

About the Book
Kael’s worse fears have come true. Betrayal has shaken the Guardian Circle, the High Guardian is dead, and Ayianna and Prince Vian are in the hands of the Sorceress, but he and his companions must finish their quest, before they can attempt a rescue mission. Unfortunately, Desmond’s parting gift left them stranded on the western cliffs of Nälu.
Jathil, once heir to the throne of Arashel, believes her father will aid them, but first she must face the crimes of her past. When she does, she cannot believe the outcome, nor the rippling effect it will have on the nations.
Meanwhile the Alliance braces for war, but division threatens to undermine their efforts. When Nerissa returns from Ganya with the dragon regiment, she discovers a bigger problem. The curse bound are waking.
As the quest nears completion, Kael is forced to choose between his heart and duty, and neither choice bodes well with him. Either way, he will face the Sorceress and her armies sooner or later. The battle for Nälu has begun and there can be only one victor.
About the Author
Writing as J. L. Mbewe, Jennette is an author, artist, mother, wife, but not always in that order. Born and raised in Minnesota, she now braves the heat of Texas, but pines for the Northern Lights and the lakes of home every autumn. She loves trying to capture the abstract and make it concrete. She is currently living her second childhood with her wonderful husband and two precious children who don’t seem to mind her eclectic collections of rocks, shells, and swords, among other things. Here, between reality and dreams, you will find her busily creating worlds inhabited by all sorts of fantasy creatures and characters, all questing about and discovering true love amid lots of peril.
Her debut novel, Secrets Kept, was nominated for the 2014 Clive Staples Award. Her second novel, Darkened Hope was a semi-finalist for the 2017 Alliance Award.
