[Blog Tour] Rage of the Dragon King by J.Keller Ford



Rage of the Dragon King (The Chronicles of Fallhollow #2)
by J. Keller Ford
Publication Date:  October 24, 2017
Publisher:  Month9Books


David and Charlotte paid their dues. They traveled to another realm, battled the Dragon King, recovered the all important magic key to the mage tunnels, and found the heir to the throne of Hirth, as promised. Now it's time to go home. There’s just one problem: the powerful crystals needed to activate the tunnels have been stolen…and David’s parents have mysteriously disappeared along with them. Guess who’s not going home to Havendale anytime soon.

Eric Hamden, squire extraordinaire, survived the poisonous knick of a shadowmorth’s blade, rescued the king of Hirth from the bowels of the dragon's lair, and confronted a heartbreaking betrayal that nearly got him killed. Still reeling from the news, Eric sets his sights on a daring rescue only to wind up in a prison of his own with David and Charlotte at his side. But rescues come in strange ways, and before they know it, the three end up in David's hometown of Havendale...and Eric gets a quick schooling in Modern Life 101. He'd rather fight a dragon.



With secrets, lies and betrayals meeting them at every turn, David, Charlotte and Eric soon discover that Havendale isn't the sanctuary they'd hoped for. Even their best-laid plans can't prepare them for the danger that stalks them. This time, no amount of magic or prayers can save them. War has been declared, and in the final battle, someone must make the ultimate sacrifice. Let the battle begin.

GUEST POST - World Building 


The world of Fallhollow -  (World Building)

Someone asked me to describe the world building in my Chronicles of Fallhollow series. I guess you could say it’s a cross between Avatar, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings and the Chronicles of Narnia. There are colorful plants, strange, new fantasy creations, religious undertones, war, dragons (both good and bad) and so much more.

I wish I could say I knew where it all came from but I don’t. I sat down to write and most of it emerged as I wrote. Trust me, it surprised even me. I was able to revise and make some scenes and characters better and more vivid as well as less ‘purple prose’ after getting feedback from my beta readers. Initially, the story was full of description. I find that’s my strongest point in writing. But I have a tendency to overdo it and that’s why I love my beta readers. They helped me find the happy medium. Otherwise, you’d be traveling through the magical world of Fallhollow for months on end.    I like to bring on the ‘wow’ effect. 

Magic plays a big part in Fallhollow, but even magic has its limits. When writing a magical world, I have to be aware of those limits all the time. I had to make sure I adhered to those limits or make sure the characters suffered greatly if they didn’t. It’s all part of making it work.

I hope as you read the books in the series, you find special, magical parts that you can see vividly in your mind and remember for a long time. If you do, I’d love to hear what they are, so please drop me a line or post a question on Goodreads, and let me know your thoughts. 

Thank you for joining me today and happy reading! I hope you enjoy the series.

About the Author: 


J. (Jenny) Keller Ford is a scribbler of speculative fiction and YA tales. As an Army brat, she traveled the world and wandered the halls of some of Germany’s most extraordinary castles in hopes of finding snarky dragons, chivalrous knights, and wondrous magic to permeate her imagination. What she found remains etched in her topsy-turvy mind and oozes out in sweeping tales of courage, sacrifice, honor and everlasting love.
When not torturing her keyboard or trying to silence the voices in her head, Jenny spends time collecting seashells, bowling, screaming on roller coasters and traveling. She is a mom to four magnificent and noble offspring and currently lives in paradise on the west coast of Florida with a menagerie of royal pets, and her own quirky knight who was brave enough to marry her.
Published works include The Passing of Millie Hudson, a paranormal short story that can be found in READING GLASSES. IN THE SHADOW OF THE DRAGON KING is her debut novel and the first installment in the Chronicles of Fallhollow Trilogy. Book 2 in the series is slated for Fall 2016.
