 Readers, I would like to introduce you to a brand new YA author, Mary Jean Harris, whose debut historical fantasy novel, Aizai the Forgotten, is being released today!

About Aizai the Forgotten:

With an otherworldly horse borrowed from an astrologer, and armed with a strange magical device, seventeen-year-old Wolfdon Pellegrin sets off through seventeenth-century France and Spain to fulfill his dream of finding the forgotten realm of Aizai.
   One obscure book, by the philosopher Paulo de la Costa Santamiguero, has given him a lead to start his journey—go to the northern coast of Spain, where a portal to Aizai supposedly exists.
Though death and danger loom ever near, nothing can dim the longing for Aizai kindling within Wolfdon’s heart. Yet even as he strives to discover the mysterious realm’s secrets and fate, a frightening truth becomes clear—one that may cost Wolfdon everything, including the future.

About the Author (from her Goodreads page):

I write and read fantasy and historical fiction, both novels and short stories. I'm interested in most fantasy, historical, and esoteric books, and I love old books too. I love reading lots of books at once, though I usually only write one story at a time.
I am also a student at Carleton University studying theoretical physics with a minor in philosophy. I love ancient philosophy, especially Plato, Plotinus, and Lao-Tzu.


In honor of releasing her debut novel, Ms. Harris has generously offered to giveaway one (1) ebook copy of her book to a lucky reader. This giveaway is open internationally and will run through Saturday JULY 5th. To enter, simply leave your name along with an email address in the comments so I can direct the winner to Ms. Harris. Good luck!

    So. I was sold on this one at the mention of an otherworldly horse. I can't help it. I grew up with horses, so the mere mention of them has me excited, and then she had to go a step further and make it a paranormal horse. YES! Thanks for putting this one on my radar Rummanah!

  2. Oh this sounds interesting. I've always liked stories with portals in them. Maybe one day I'd find one myself. :D

    I just finished reading the excerpt on Amazon, and I love the sense of wonder and magic Mary Jean Harris, and Wolfdon evokes. Her story reminds me a little of Carlos Ruiz Zaf├│n's "The Shadow of the Wind" meets "Earthsea", but in a world and setting very much her own. Really neat concept and writing, and I look forward to reading more.
