Blog Tour + #Giveaway: Silver Dawn Afire by Sonja J. Breckon @SonjaJBreckon @XpressoTours

Silver Dawn Afire
Sonja J. Breckon
(The Seventh Age Saga, #1)
Publication date: March 16th 2021
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

Myridians are coming, each wielding one of Six Cataclysmic Powers that will lay waste to the world and wake the God of Neutrality. What happens when one refuses to succumb to her myridian nature and sets out to save the world instead?


SIDRA ANATOLA will soon die a human death and be reborn as one of the myridian, beings destined to destroy the World of Aetheria. In a desperate attempt to change her dark fate, she flees home and the young man she loves to seek help from a powerful entity who has lived through all the ages. But she may not make it in time before she is killed by hunters—or by the love of her life, also a myridian, who fights every day to hold onto the emotions that made him human.

BRESEIS ERISWEN was expelled from the academy and failed her father who expected her to carry on her late mother’s profession as a myridian hunter. But Breseis never wanted to be a hunter—she refused to kill, and she never believed in myridians, to begin with. She leaves home with big dreams, lacking experience, and a broken heart, to prove that she is more than a failed hunter.

Two contrasting paths converge to become a turbulent one. A mouthy intellect with a colorful personality, and a skilled warrior with a frosty attitude, put their differences aside and travel the rest of the way together, robbing temples, angering false gods, and escaping numerous predicaments with their lives. Amid the chaos, they form a friendship despite a gut feeling that both hide dangerous secrets that can save or destroy the world and each other.

Interview with Sonja J. Breckon

What made you want to become a writer?

I think I’ve always been a writer, even when I wasn’t very good at it – writing has been in my blood since I was very young and I can’t imagine life without it. But I wanted to become a published author when I was about thirteen, and I started writing my first novel. I was heavily inspired by Anne Rice and her Vampire Chronicles, primarily Interview with the Vampire.

What inspired you to write SILVER DAWN AFIRE?

The star characters were inspired by the relationship between Xena and Gabrielle in the 90s pop culture fantasy television series Xena: Warrior Princess. But I also wanted desperately to read a YA Fantasy book that was different from everything already on the market, and when I couldn’t find what I was looking for, I decided to write my own.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in SILVER DAWN AFIRE?

Sidra Anatola is a skilled warrior with a frosty attitude; she’s not one to laugh or joke or smile much, but seeing as how she is destined to play a part in the destruction of the world, I suppose she doesn’t have much to smile, or joke, or laugh about. Breseis Eriswen is a mouthy intellect with a colorful personality – Sidra’s polar opposite. She has big dreams and doesn’t take too kindly to people telling her she must follow the rules and traditions of society instead of being her own person.

You know I think we all have a favorite author. Who is your favorite author and why?

That is a hard question, but if I had to choose one, I would choose Anne Rice because it was because of her I wanted to become published.

Can you tell us a little bit about your next books or what you have planned for the future?

My next two books will be the final two in the Silver Dawn Afire Trilogy, titled BLACK MOON ARISING and RED STARS ALIGNED. After that, I’m going to finish my urban fantasy vampire trilogy.

What did you enjoy most about writing this book?

I loved the world-building most! There’s just something about creating fantasy worlds, creatures, races, languages, and magic systems that fills my soul. I am truly happy when I’m creating.
