Blog Tour Spotlight – The Girl Of Dorcha Wood by Kristin Ward

Hello everyone,

I am a late addition to the blog tour for this one, having missed the original invitation – oops! Thank you so much to Dave @ The Write Reads for letting me be part of it at short notice, as I simply could not let a further opportunity to support Kristin Ward and her writing to slip by. Thank you as well to Noly for creating a fitting tour banner.

I have read and reviewed two of Kristin’s other books for previous blog tours, enjoying them both as they place a strong emphasis on environmental issues and the topic of climate change while telling a good story. Furthermore, she is such a lovely person and every interaction with her online is an absolute joy.

As my arrival on the tour came too late to read and review the book, today I am going to be doing a spotlight, but I plan to read it in January and share my thoughts on it then.

The Girl Of Dorcha Wood is the first in a series entitled Daughter Of Erabel. At first glance, it seems like a highly intriguing fantasy with atmospheric, vibrant settings, cool mythology, and a journey of self-discovery for the main character. Let’s take a look at the blurb!

The people of Felmore talk of Dorcha Wood in whispers, if they speak of it at all, fearing the wrath of the Cú-Síth should their words be carried on the wind. Those murdering beasts still roam the darkness of the forest, the last remnants of the cursed Aos Sí, a race of elves, long since vanished from the world.

But to Fiadh, it is home. Haven. A forest whose secrets become known only when it chooses to reveal them. Her life is one of balance until the outside world shatters it.

From the moment Fiadh set eyes on Gideon, the peaceful rhythm of her life was lost. As a new path unfolds, Fiadh confronts the reality of old hatreds, the consequences of things hidden, and the truth of who she really is.

Kristin Ward has long loved writing and had ambitions of being an author for 30 years, finally achieving it with dystopian novel After The Green Withered in 2018, with the sequel Burden Of Truth published several months later.

A science fiction fantasy entitled Rise Of Gaia was released in 2019 and the subject of a blog tour in March 2020. The Daughter Of Erabel series is due to comprise of three books, with Blood Of The Lost Kingdom coming in 2022.
