The Cycle of the Six Moons by Adelle Yeung @goddessfish @Adelle_Yeung





INTERVIEW 


Welcome!!!   I'm so pleased to host you today on your tour through the blogosphere with Goddess Fish Promotions!!  What would we find under your bed?
            A big box of sewing notions.  Boxes of bookmarks and business cards.  A BB gun.  Random decorative knives I’ll never use.  Several bags and slippers.  Annotated copies of a book I had written in high school and passed around to my friends for their feedback.  Lots of cat hair.

Describe what it’s like to be an author in three words.
            I feel alive.

Say your publisher has offered to fly you anywhere in the world to do research on an upcoming book, where would you most likely want to go?
            Scandinavia!  I’d love to see the Northern Lights and experience the cold.  It looks so peaceful out there.

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?
            Follow a teenage girl carry the burden of protecting the entire universe.  Then enjoy the sensation of your heart being ripped out.

You just won a huge lottery what is the first thing you'll buy?
            A private jet.  And a pilot to go with it, I guess.  I want to travel the world :D

What do you find most rewarding about writing?

            All the daydreams, tears, physical pain hunched at the computer to edit, finally feels worth it when a reader expresses their love for your book.

ABOUT THE BOOKS

The Cycle of the Six Moons Series
by Adelle Yeung


GENRE: YA Fantasy




BLURB:

The Starriest Summer:

Fifteen-year-old Michelle saves the world on a daily basis…with her trusty video game controller, of course! Naturally, she jumps at the chance to play an experimental virtual reality game.

The beautiful fantasy world of Starrs? Check. The power to mold matter? Check. No reset button? Wait, she didn’t sign up for this!

Turns out Starrs is really real, and to make matters worse, Michelle’s interference awakens the Cycle of the Six Moons, a series of devastating trials that will devour the universe.

Fighting the apocalypse was way easier when danger stayed on the other side of the screen, but Michelle finds a secret weapon in her new-found powers. She uses them to rescue the crown prince of a powerful magic kingdom from their sworn enemies, a technologically-advanced cult that strives to eradicate magical blood.

Michelle starts to fall for Prince Jayse, the only one who believes Michelle to be a savior rather than a curse. But not even video games could prepare her for what the cult has in store for them…




An Eclipsing Autumn:

Deciding last minute to stay in Starrs, Michelle continues her epic adventure as Goddess. After all, learning how to save the world sure beats a year of pre-calculus. With her friends by her side, Michelle travels to a city of scholars to learn the lore of the Cycle of the Six Moons.

At first, the exotic retreat turns romantic, as Michelle spends her free time exchanging sweet letters with the crown prince, Jayse. But, during her studies, Michelle learns something that drastically changes her game plan. Powerful blood must be spilled to end the Cycle…blood that only runs through her veins and the prince destined to fall in love with her.

During a celebration honoring their enlightenment, Michelle and Jayse are whisked off to a rogue city as trophies of a tournament, where only the strongest can claim a taste of their blood. Gallant as ever, their guardian, Gediyon, enters to prevent harm to his friends. Unfortunately for the contestants, the Cycle’s latest trial prevents everyone from waking from a cursed slumber…


EXCERPT

After a moment, I hear the familiar high pitched clinking of metal against stone.  I try to scream, “Is someone there?” but it probably can’t be heard from the other side.

I look at Jayse, who’s leaning against the wall, and I signal to him to do the shouting for me.

He calls out the same thing.  “Is someone there?”  He must put all his air into it because as soon as he’s done, he falls back against the wall and starts to slide down.

I rush to his side and help him stay on his feet, using my hand to fan him viciously, hoping it’ll cool him down or help him breathe easier or whatever.  I don’t know if it does anything.

The hammering has stopped momentarily.  Then, far away and muffled, I hear someone shout back, “Yes!  Yes, stay right there!  We’re coming soon.”

I sigh with relief and look at Jayse.  He’s sweating so much that the blood on his jaw has already washed away.  I wipe the sweat on his forehead with the back of my hand.

“You want to sit down?” I whisper.

He slides down, then stops himself.  The hammering on the other side of the stone barricade has continued, but another sound is louder, closer.  The sound of sharpening blades.

I swallow a lump in my throat and look back down another hall to the right, the one we’d have taken if the lanterns didn’t lead here.  Something is definitely coming this way.  I light the hall with a steady stream of fire.  Several yards away, the digger scrapes his scythes against each other.  When the fire reaches him, he sprints forward and I scream.
