The Soul of the Sun Book Tour + Giveaway

About the Book:


“The hands of time turn on the face of the sun. Only you can move them. If the Watcher controls the hands of the clock he can go anywhere, past or future-- and destroy our planet.” 

Since the days of ancient Greece, the Argos dynasty has kept a secret, a mystery passed down through their descendants from generation to generation, in the hopes that the forces of good can stop the evil destruction of planet Earth.

Margaret Ingall is harboring that secret. Time is running out for the descendants of the Argos. They know a great healer and time traveler will be born of their blood. But the only person that knows whom they will call “the soul of the sun” is Margaret’s sister, Abigail. Before she can reveal the healer’s identity, disaster strikes…

Evil stalks them, watching and waiting to find out which member of her family has the ultimate power. Is it Margaret’s own child? Or her beloved granddaughter? Or even herself? Their only clue is a powerful protective amulet that will lead them all in a cat-and-mouse game to discover secrets as ancient as time.

If the Watcher discovers the truth before they do, all will be lost.

Fate, time and love weave together in their struggle to fulfill their destiny. Will Margaret’s fears sabotage her family’s protection? Can the healer accept her gifts in time? And once the soul of the sun is finally revealed, will it be too late?

Her power is incredible. The sacrifices required of her are immense.

Will it be enough to stop the Watcher?

My Review

I had a good time reading this book. I liked Margaret. She was an exciting character and strong with a good head on her shoulders. Even when she endured a terrible ordeal. For a first book in the series, I have to say that this was a good book. The author found the right balance of laying the ground work for the plot of the series without dragging it out too long. This is what I liked this book. I was able to get a good idea of what the plot was about but at the same time I was able to jump right into the story. The jumping back and forth within time periods was smooth. Although, I liked the past better, it drew me in more then the present. Plus, I thought more exciting things happened in the past. However towards the end when the story shifted more to the present, it did get more interesting. The ending left at a high note to the lead up for the next book.

The Watcher is one evil and deceitful person. I would not really call him a person but more an essence without a soul. I would not want to ever meet him in any situation. He is the perfect evil to be the bad guy in this book. This book is part fantasy as well. In addition, to being a quick read. The Soul of the Sun is a captivating read!
