The long path to the throne has only just begun for Aelin Galathynius. Loyalties have been broken and bought, friends have been lost and gained, and those who possess magic find themselves at odds with those don't.
As the kingdoms of Erilea fracture around her, enemies must become allies if Aelin is to keep those she loves from falling to the dark forces poised to claim her world. With war looming on all horizons, the only chance for salvation lies in a desperate quest that may mark the end of everything Aelin holds dear.
Aelin's journey from assassin to queen has entranced millions across the globe, and this fifth installment will leave fans breathless. Will Aelin succeed in keeping her world from splintering, or will it all come crashing down?
I am so excited to be the second stop on the Empire of Storms blog tour! EOS has been out only a couple days now, but as you can imagine, I was overeager to read it, and was lucky enough to finish it in practically one sitting. (If you’d like to check out my 5-Star–with hidden spoilers–review for Empire of Storms, go here!)
When my copy of Empire of Storms arrived, I barely had time to drop it into my purse before I was off on an adventure through 3 major cities, and two states. So in theory, for the first few days, my book sort of became a traveling gnome. I figured I’d photo document the whole trip, and share those photos with you in a feature I’d like to call “Steph-pire of Storms: From Terrasen to the DMV”. (Yes, I know I’m a dork.)
What is the DMV?
Before I get to the fun part (pictures, YAY!), I want to tell you what ” the DMV” means for those of you not from ’round here. DMV stands for “D.C.”, “Maryland”, and “Virginia”. I live in the “M”, but I am originally from the “D” (hehe, that sounded dirty. *giggles*).
Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s get to it!
“Home is behind, the world ahead,
and there are many paths to tread
through shadows to the edge of night,
until the stars are all alight.”
— J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings
Empire of Storms gave me serious Lord of the Rings vibes.
Throughout the book, each of the characters were traveling on a quest. So, I found it fitting that I was able to travel with my copy as I journeyed throughout the DMV!
I took my copy of EOS everywhere.
And I mean everywhere:
Baseball games in Baltimore? You betcha.
Hanging out at the Baltimore Inner Harbor? Check.
Coffee & Shoe Shopping in Virginia? Yes please.
Spending a gorgeous day in my old stomping grounds in D.C.? Absolutely.
But, home is where my book is. (Near Annapolis, MD!)
Near, far, wherever you are…
The last stop for my traveling book was Bensalem, PA, for Sarah’s EMPIRE OF STORMS launch event (which I was lucky enough to moderate)!
Here are a some photos:
Look how pretty Sarah’s signature stamp is for the EOS tour:
