Blog Tour: Uprising & Ensnared (The Dolan Prophecies Series Book #1 & #1.5) By Allana Kephart & Melissa Simmons @MelandLanaWrite @GHBTours #Giveaway

The Dolan Prophecies Series Book #1
By- Allana Kephart & Melissa Simmons
Publication Date- April 18th, 2014
Genre- New Adult Dystopian/Dark Faery Tales

The year 2102--the world as it was no longer exists. Ravaged by nuclear war and polluted almost to the point of no return, Earth was dying. When the faeries came and brought their healing magic, humanity was grateful at first. Centuries of damage repaired in just five years, and during the course of that rehabilitation, they invaded. Quietly overthrown, the human race is now enslaved. The majority doesn’t even realize they have no free will. Branded, herded and kept only to further the agendas of the Fae Courts, humanity could be facing extinction.

But a resistance is coming…

Fianna Dolan has spent her entire young life preparing herself for an uprising against the Fae. One scorching summer night Fi's parents leave and never return. Thrust into a position of power she never expected, Fi struggles with her new position and the responsibility it entails. When a secretive fae man known only as Flint breaches the city’s defenses claiming he can help, Fi begins to doubt everything she's ever considered truth. As betrayals and deception come to light, will Fi want the answers she’s been seeking, or will trusting Flint lead to her destruction?


Character Interview With Fianna Aoife Dolan


Do you like to read?

I love to read. Almost anything I can get my hands on.

What is your favorite book? 

My very favorite book is Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.

Who is you favorite author?

That is very hard. I’m going to say it’s a tie between Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott.

What would be your idea of the best meal ever? 

Oh, anything my Aunt Ruth cooks is delicious, but I especially love her shepherd’s pie.

How does it feel to be the leader of a group of people? How do you feel being so young and the leader of people that are older than you? 

Honestly, I never wanted to be in charge but I’m a Dolan and it’s my duty to take up this mantle when needed. It’s a bit surreal to be in charge of men and women who’ve been alive twice as long as I have. I try to take their input into consideration before making any important decisions. Most of the time, anyway. 

In your own words describe Flint to us.

Arrogant. Annoying. Sweet when he wants to be—and surely for motives I have yet to determine. Entirely too handsome, sarcastic…I could keep going but I am trying to get along with him for the sake of my sanity.

What is it like having Eir for a brother? Does he give you a hard time like most little brothers do with their big sisters like pick on you or is he the best little brother a girl could have? 

Ah, my demon of a brother. He likes to harass me, yes but I love him more than anything in this world and I’d do anything to protect him. Eir makes me laugh when I feel like the world is falling down around me, he might drive me crazy sometimes but I’d be lost without him. 

Do you think it is possible that you and Flint may one day be together as a couple? Would you like him to be a part of your future? 

Oh my, no I don’t think so. We are just barely friends, I think he mostly just tries to tolerate me as I do him. I wouldn’t mind remaining friends with him if he could learn to call me by my actual name and maybe keep that damned sarcastic smirk off his face. He definitely makes life more interesting, though…I guess it would depend, is my answer.

Thanks for visiting with us today Fianna and taking time out of your busy schedule. It has been fun! Maybe next time you could bring Flint with you. You know a little eye candy.

The Dolan Prophecies Series #1.5 (Novella)
By- Allana Kephart & Melissa Simmons
Publication Date- August 22nd, 2014
Genre- New Adult Dystopian/ Dark Faery Tales

Patrick and Maeve Dolan left the safety of their New York human settlement on a sultry summer night and never returned. Ambushed by the Winter Court guards during their search for information on how to free humanity from faery rule, they are now ensnared in the Winter King Landric’s web, and he has some questions of his own.
The Winter King is curious about the way the Dolans run their city. In a surprising turn of events, he’s determined to learn all about their 16-year-old son, Eirnin. Landric separates the couple, threatens and tortures to the best of his ability, but the Dolans won’t give up the information he’s after.
Murphy, one of King Landric’s guards has been a ward of the Winter Court for as long as he can remember. Trained from childhood to be as quiet and obedient as possible, he’s always been the perfect servant. At least, until Princess Lumi strolled into his life and made him question everything he believes in.
When the princess vanishes without a trace in the middle of the night, Landric is determined Patrick’s people had something to do with it. Without the only connection to kindness and humanity they had, Murphy and Patrick both find themselves falling into very different kinds of insanity.
Will Murphy follow his heart just this once, choose his own side and find Lumi? Will Patrick’s hope dwindle before he can escape and save his family? Or will their unyielding resistance be the death of them all?

I would choose water. I've always loved the water and being near it. I think that element suits me more - calming, but powerful.
