Character Q&A: Lilae (Rise of the Flame: Book One of the Eura Chronicles) K.N. Lee
Where are you from? The cold North, Auroria, where the humans have special abilities and are feared by the rest of the world.

How old are you? 17

What do your parents do? I never knew my parents. My surrogate family consists of an Elder that used to be the gatekeeper of the Underworld, a soldier, his wife, and twin daughters.

Tell us about your closest friends. — The Winds. They speak to me whenever danger is near. Delia, the Elder that raised me is also like a mother, and I confide in her. I've never made real friends before. My family moves every year to avoid my capture by the Shadow Elf that hunts me.

Any secrets you want to share with us? I don't know if I want to be a god. Would it be so wrong to simply live my life as a normal human girl? 

Describe one moment that you feared for your life.
— Once, I was chased by a basilisk on my way through the forest. As a creature from another realm, I'd never encountered one before and had no idea how to fight it. I nearly lost my life that night. I suppose the scar I have from its claws was worth it. I met the man from my dreams that night.

Is there a love interest we should know about? There is a mysterious young man that visits my dreams whenever I'm harmed, but I admit...it is the emperor that enslaved me that catches my eye, and maybe my heart.
Anything else you want people out there to know? My powers do not define me, but I will use them to protect my loved ones and save the human race.
Night of the Storm: Book Two of the Eura Chronicles will be released 4/26/16!


Six races. Four realms. One human girl who can bring them together in peace... or war. 



Lilae has been hunted since the night of her birth, for she is heir to a god’s throne. But everything that her surrogate family has done to protect her may have been for nothing. After Lilae is stripped of her powers and enslaved by the emperor of the Mithrani, she finds herself desperate to survive in a strange new world. 


On the other side of the world, Liam leads his army across the realm to protect the Tryans and the fairies from those who would do them harm. But when their odds of survival become next to impossible, he must set out on a journey to find a dragon, a child, and the blessing of a fallen god to aid him in the inevitable realm war. 

The path forward for both Liam and Lilae seems clear, until their dreamscapes collide. But while they draw strength from their connection, Lilae may be falling for the emperor who should be her greatest enemy.




Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rise of the Flame is epic in every sense of the word! This book has everything--complex characters, a well-developed fantasy world, romance, action, and plot twists. The author certainly knows how to tell a story. I was hooked from the first page... and I guarantee you'll be too! If you enjoyed Lord of the Rings or Game of Thrones, you'll love this book." Kirstin Pulioff, Author of Escape of Princess Madeline
"BEST fantasy book I read this year!" - The Grammar Babe


"Her story has layers of realms and dimensions and just as many characters. She balances the story with the usual darkness wanting to destroy the light, one race wanting to wipe out the next. But, we have two characters, having had only a glimpse of each other between realms. Both intrigued and yet not quite sure what they experienced, and so we get to see how this unfolds and the tragedies and triumphs they will endure before they find one another. I am a dragon girl and when the dragon first appeared I was like YES!" -Denice Garrou, Author of the Dragonhorse Saga 
"Author K. N. Lee is skilled with the use of what makes fiction come alive for a reader: heroic characters who courageously face harrowing challenges, such as protagonists Lilae and Liam, formidable villains like Wexcyn and Dragnar, dialogue which flows as credibly as any given conversation in daily life, and, of course, enough compelling action sequences to keep the pages turning far into the wee hours of another morning's dawn."- Michael Holman. Author of Resolve and Retribution
"This is my first book by this author and I couldn't put it down. It was a thrill ride with interesting characters and a great storyline. I definitely recommend reading this."- Rants and Raves with Yvonne
