THE SORCERESS & THE SQUID // Blog Tour & Sneak Peek

{Background/cover image source. Banner created/edited by yours truly.}

*waves* Hello, Dragons! Today I am very excited to be a part of the blog tour for Emily Mundell's debut novel, The Sorceress & the Squid! I must say, what an enchanting title! And what an enchanting cover...


In the magical land of Perth, divisions between the Old Kingdom and the New have waged for centuries. The humans have long harbored a mistrust of the spell-casting Fae and vice versa. In the midst of this conflict, Estrella the Sorceress lays waste to the Training Academy for Human Warriors, making an enemy in the soldier, Jalen. During their standoff, Jalen is turned into a squid and Estrella, unable to restore him to his original form, takes pity on him and travels west across the Sea to bring him to the Wizard in hope he can be saved. But is there more to the unrest in Perth than meets the eye?


Jalen started to shrink, and his ruddy brown skin became grey-ish and wet-looking. His hair and clothes disappeared, but his arms and legs seemed to multiply, until they were no longer arms and legs, but tentacles. The human before her had become something entirely different, entirely unexpected.

"A squid?" she squeaked, horrified, as the warrior-turned-sea-creature struggled to rise.


Emily Mundell is a nineteen-year-old author, artist, horsewoman, and lover of the wonders of the wide world. She hails from the Great White North of Canada and has spent her life growing up in the heart of rural Alberta in a close-knit farming community -- though she has often entertained fantasies of inhabiting the Shire.

Writing is her true passion -- though horses and art take a close second. With fantasy as her primary genre, Emily has been writing stories since the tender age of eight when she finished her first "book." She is currently working to complete her Creative Writing Certificate through the University of Calgary. An avid bookworm, true country-mouse, and unconventional tree-climber, Emily can usually be found on a horse, working on one of her half-dozen projects, chasing a loose cow, or being swept off her feet by the man she calls her own personal "hobbit."

Readers can connect with Emily via her blog, Facebook page, Twitter, Instagram, and Goodreads.




Eeep! I'm so terribly excited for this book! Don't forget to pick it up on Amazon or Createspace, and add it to Goodreads!
