If you are here, you are probably wondering what Echaria Rising is. Don’t worry, friends! I have answers!
What is Echaria Rising?
Echaria Rising is the first installment in The Echarian Chronicles series.
It is the story of a young woman who discovers that her entire identity and past is built on a lie, and she has to go on a quest to find out more about herself, and to set history right. It is set in the Kingdom of Echaria (Middle Earth meets Narnia meets Classic Fairytale). There is magic, mythical creatures, danger, and of course, romance.
Here is the official book blurb:
Unrest plagues the Kingdom of Echaria. The Monarchy has been destroyed by corruption, the people are suffering under the tyrannical rule of Lord Bainbridge, and danger lurks in the shadows. A young woman named Adelaide holds the key to restoring Echaria to its former glory, but the task comes at great risk. She must brave the unknown, face her deepest fears, and discover hidden truths about herself if she ever hopes to fulfill her destiny and set things right. Join Adelaide and her companions as they journey across Echaria and beyond the horizon, finding love, uncovering truth, and challenging destiny along the way.
What is the Genre?
The official genres are Fantasy and Romance, with a more heavy emphasis on Fantasy as the series progresses. It also falls pretty squarely into the Chick Lit genre, due to an extremely strong predominantly female cast of characters.
