Scions of Atlantis – I salute you #ScionsOfAtlantis

So, today’s post is dedicated to an event that I’m taking part in and wanted to share with you all.  Basically, the nature of this event is to share the book love for a series known as the  Tarot Sequence, by KD Edwards.  I absolutely loved the first book in the series, The Last Sun, and can’t wait to read the sequel The Hanged Man which is due out on 17th December.

Why am I taking part in this.  Well, I had a great time reading The Last Sun and, selfishly, I want everyone else to read it too so they can discuss it with me!  On a serious note, I love to help spread the word about a good book and events like this are a two way street.  They allow me to connect with others at the same time as helping others to connect with the book and the author. Simples.

The nature of the event and the details can all be found here  and here – and believe me these two are much better explanations than I could have come up with.  If you want to take part (and of course you really do because people – there are quests – yes, actual QUESTS), well, it’s never too late – unless it really is too late and the event is over – don’t leave it THAT late.  And, if you do want to take part – well I strongly suggest you join Team Tower – which is my team – I just love company.  And, I’m using my Jedi mind tricks on you right now – *the others are not the teams you want to join”.  Failing that I will give you some serious stink eye – and nobody wants thatpug gives you the stink eye gif

Of course, if you don’t want to join a team and prefer to watch from the sidelines that’s all good too.  If you like to follow Twitter we’re using #ScionsOfAtlantis.

I’m not a tarot aficionado but here’s a little about the Tower (aka ‘the best team’ ahem, just saying):

The Tower

The Tower is the 16th trump or Major Arcana card.  It’s meaning is all tied up with fire, lightning and destruction which really doesn’t sound very positive – but, before you run for the hills – it’s a card that also represents change.  Change can be scary but it can also lead to positive things.  Maybe I’ve shortened that a little bit but I didn’t want anybody having nightmares (kidding of course).

And here are the books.  Because we’re all about the books after all (wouldn’t want your tbr to become manageable or anything outrageous like that):

The Last Sun (for which I will be revamping and reposting my review soon):

The Last sun.jpgRune Saint John, last child of the fallen Sun Court, is hired to search for Lady Judgment’s missing son, Addam, on New Atlantis, the island city where the Atlanteans moved after ordinary humans destroyed their original home.

With his companion and bodyguard, Brand, he questions Addam’s relatives and business contacts through the highest ranks of the nobles of New Atlantis. But as they investigate, they uncover more than a missing man: a legendary creature connected to the secret of the massacre of Rune’s Court.

In looking for Addam, can Rune find the truth behind his family’s death and the torments of his past?

The Hanged Man:

TheHangedMan.jpgThe last member of a murdered House tries to protect his ward from forced marriage to a monster while uncovering clues to his own past.

The Tarot Sequence imagines a modern-day Atlantis off the coast of Massachusetts, governed by powerful Courts based on the traditional Tarot deck.

Rune Saint John, last child of the fallen Sun Throne, is backed into a fight of high court magic and political appetites in a desperate bid to protect his ward, Max, from a forced marital alliance with the Hanged Man.

Rune’s resistance will take him to the island’s dankest corners, including a red light district made of moored ghost ships; a surreal skyscraper farm; and the floor of the ruling Convocation, where a gathering of Arcana will change Rune’s life forever.

Finally, a little introduction to my other Tower Team members (queue drum roll):

Abi Walton: Twitter – Alex W: Twitter – Geth: Twitter Me: Twitter – Megan Dawn: Twitter Sara: Twitter – Joy: Tumblr – Kat: Twitter – Jude: Twitter– Tam: Twitter – Para: Twitter  Kristen: Twitter 

That’s about it for now.  Look out for future posts folks 😀

    THE TOWER WILL FALL WHEN #TEAMDEATH IS FINISHED WITH YOU!! (Sorry, I had to throw in some rivalry, lol.) You’ve put me to shame, Lynn. I haven’t even posted about this yet!

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – me too with the rivalry! I’m not really naturally competitive tbh.
      Well, I’m not really contributing loads, I don’t really do Instagram very much or photos, etc, my art sucks so it will just be a blog post here and there.
      We should do a splinter team – the two of us (The Fool) lol
      Lynn 😀

      • Tammy

        Lol I love it. The Fools🤪

  3. Mogsy @ BiblioSanctum

    Haha, hope you guys have fun with this! I thought the first book was enjoyable, but will probably not read the sequel right away.

  4. Greg

    Ooh this sounds fun! I love that cover of The Hanged Man!

    • @lynnsbooks

      It’s a great cover isn’t it and really plays into the Tarot theme.
      Lynn 😀

    Ok, I need to move The Last Sun up on my reading queue. I would not want to get another annoyed look by that oh-so-severe dog… 😀 😀

  6. Weekly Wrap Up : 17th November 2019 | Books and travelling with Lynn

    […] How fast did this week go by!  Really, what is up with that.  Anyway, in other news I managed to cross a few reviews off my list, complete a couple of SPFBO books and read one of my scheduled books as well as joining The Tower Team as part of an event to highlight the forthcoming release of The Hanged Man by KD Edwards (details here). […]

    I am having so much fun with this event so far! Hope you are too. 🙂

    • @lynnsbooks

      Haha – yes, it’s good fun and lots of things to get involved with but at the same time you can decide your own level of involvement.
      Lynn 😀

      • waytoofantasy

        That’s true! Although I am secretly hyper competitive so now I’m trying to think of a bunch of ways to score more points hahahah

      • @lynnsbooks

        I’ve been a little bit useless with this event – I’ve done a few posts but I need to try harder.
        Lynn 😀

      • waytoofantasy

        I did a bunch last week and then got lazy over my long weekend. Sun Court is killing it! LOL

      • @lynnsbooks

        You’re not kidding – I can’t even comprehend how you manage to score that many points – most of the challenges are like 1/2/3 points – that’s a whole bunch of completed challenges – exactly how large is their team LOL.
        Lynn 😀

      • waytoofantasy

        I think a lot of it is is Lauren on twitter, they are posting a TON of art and mood boards and stuff and it’s multiple things ever single day LOL. I can’t compete with that ahahahaha. I’ll just continue my slow and steady thing lol.

  8. Ring in the changes | Books and travelling with Lynn
