The Emperor's Treaty by Chacelyn Pierce: Book Blurb Blitz with Excerpt


The Emperor’s Treaty

by Chacelyn Pierce




The Emperor's Treaty (The Calaeron Duology, #1) Arryn, the newly crowned Emperor of New Phalba, must find a means to strengthen his kingdoms from impending foes. To end a blood war that has carried over millenniums, he petitions to marry one of his race’s mortal enemy—the Moekan dragons’ crowned princess. Even though the bond with the Moekan dragons will aid against a looming attack on his empire, Arryn can’t help his attraction to the dragon princess Shann living in his palace.


Eager to make the best of her situation and please her new husband, Shann is willing to face the challenges of a dragon ruling the Fae Empire. Winning his trust proves to be a tougher challenge with odds stacked against her. Will the lies about her cause Arryn to break the new peace treaty? And can she stop him from starting a war that will change everyone's future?

When Shann finally reached Kell and Arryn, she stood blocking Kell's killing blow. Arryn had been hurt from Kell's tail lash and attempted to catch his breath while dodging snapping jaws and talons as he rolled on the gauntlet of scattered supplies and tent fabrics.


Kell halted his strike and roared at her for being in his way.


"Stop this, Kell!" He reeled back and snarled in Shann's face. Drool dripped and frothed from his mouth. Arryn moved behind her, but out of the corner of her eye she noticed he rose up on unsteady feet, already preparing for the next attack. Seeing her husband so out of breath and weak angered her, because she knew if he wanted, Arryn could fight back, but he'd held off. In fact, a lot of the Phalbans were only blocking attacks; none advanced. The Moekans seemed to be the ones thirsty for bloodshed, and she felt a moment of sadness that she'd told Arryn that the peace meant more to her people that the Phalbans. It was clear that years of anger had caused Moekan blood to boil hotter than the Phalbans’, but enough was enough.


Shann turned back to her brother. "Call them off." She nodded to the anarchy surrounding them. "Please, Kell," she begged.


His reptilian face hardened, and his massive clawed hand tried to push her out of the way. He wanted to finish Arryn off with no regard to the sworn oath. Only this time Arryn had a sword pointed at the ready. The small sword wouldn't do anything against the hundred razor-sharp teeth in the Moekan general's mouth. Plus, Shann had noticed Arryn's foot was twisted at an odd angle that could make maneuvering away damn near impossible.

As a native Texan, she doesn't personally own a horse but follows the unwritten southern rule of knowing how to ride one. When she’s not testing the emotional capacity of her characters, she works as a dog groomer.

Back again Chacelyn!

I love this scene...Action scenes are some of the most difficult to write...How was it trying to add in extra elements like dragon know tails and claws?? Do you think it made things easier, harder, or just more fun??

I really love the cover; how much input did you have into its design?


Chacelyn said...

Action is fairly easy for me when writing fantasy or a paranormal. I think it's easier for me to "see" that scene in my head a lot easier than say a contemporary action fight sequence.

During my frist few years for writing before I was published, I created covers for freelance and a publisher. So this cover is created by me. I had too much fun adding more photos to get the desired look I wanted.

Thank you so much for commenting you two. :)

I love the cover, I think it's so cool that you designed it yourself. How many covers have you designed (estimate)?
