Blog Tour + Review + #Giveaway: Mordizan by Alyssa Roat @XpressoTours

Alyssa Roat
(The Wraithwood Trilogy, #2)
Publication date: March 15th 2022
Genres: Fantasy, Young Adult

The bane of Mordred, the son of Mordizan, and a millennia-old prophecy—together they may provide what Brinnie needs to defeat the world of magic’s greatest threat.

More than a year has passed since Brinnie left Wraithwood, never expecting to see it again. But when Mordred captures her sister, she is thrust back into the world of magic. She flees to Wraithwood, where she learns of a prophecy located in the dark wizard capital of Mordizan that reveals the identity of “Mordred’s bane,” something that could destroy Mordred for good.

Brinnie agrees to a rendezvous with Mordred to exchange herself for her sister, going undercover at Mordizan as a spy to find the prophecy and Mordred’s bane. There, she weaves a complicated web of secrets, lies, and tenuous friendships. She makes an unexpected ally in Marcus Vorath, son of the Master of Mordizan, who fears the implications of Mordred’s growing power. But in Mordizan, friends and foes may be one and the same.

In the midst of court intrigue, battle, ominous new depths to her power, and searching for Mordred’s bane, Brinnie struggles to draw the lines. How far is she willing to go to destroy Mordred? And how much of herself is she willing to give up along the way?

My Review:

Ever since Brinnie left Wraithwood over a year ago she has been home with her parents without a mishap. Then one day at school she fears she has been found when she learns that someone is following her. She calls her dad and he comes and takes her back to her Uncle Merlin’s at Wraithwood. She fears that Mordred has found her.

Brinnie soon learns that her sister was abducted by Mordred. When Brinnie learns of her sister’s whereabouts she agrees to take her sister’s place with Mordred after all she is the one he wanted in the first place only using her sister to draw her in. Brinnie soon finds herself undercover studying and learning all she can about her enemy so she can destroy him.

New twists and secrets are revealed in Mordizan. Secrets that could tear her family apart. This secret does not sit well with Uncle Merlin who is not very fond of her father. I could just see the looks on each of their faces as Brinnie and her father walked in the door at Wraithwood. Secrets that have been hidden for many years have come forth into Brinnie’s life. How will this secret affect Brinnie? Will it make her life better or worse?

The world that was created for Mordizan was so very enchanting. After reading Wraithwood I couldn’t wait to dive into Mordizan. I was not disappointed in the least as Mordizan was just as mesmerizing as Wraithwood if not more so. The suspense was so thick that once I picked up Mordizan I was pulled into its depths and it didn’t let go until I read that last page. Mordizan has left me anxiously waiting for the next book in The Wraithwood Trilogy.

I highly recommend Mordizan to all fans of fantasy and intrigue. But I do recommend reading Wraithwood before reading Mordizan. One-click your copy of Mordizan today for another magically exciting adventure in The Wraithwood Trilogy!

Wraithwood (The Wraithwood Trilogy #1) by Alyssa Roat


My Review:

Brynna "Brinnie" Lane has always lived a quiet life with her mother always watching over her and doing her best to keep her safe. Then one day right out of the blue her mother packs her up and sends her to spend the summer with an uncle she had never heard of all while her parents spend their summer traveling.

Upon her arrival at her uncle’s house, she finds some very strange and mysterious things going on in that house. Brinnie is told from the very beginning that the front of the house is off-limits. As any teenager would be Brinnie is very curious as to what lies behind those closed doors. Oh, and let's not forget Uncle Marvin can be just as mysterious. Brinnie hardly ever gets to see her uncle as he keeps himself locked away in his area of the house which is also off-limits to her.

Brinnie like any other teenager is very curious and goes off exploring in forbidden rooms of the house. Her exploration of the house only opens up more and more secrets. Uncle Marvin has quite a few secrets in his closet. Brinnie overhears talk of a hidden war and sets out to find out everything she can about this war and everything that is going on in this strange house.

Wraithwood is filled with lots and lots of mystery and suspense that keeps the pages turning. Once I picked up Wraithwood I was hooked as it drew me into its depths as I waited for all its secrets to be revealed. The world that was created for Wraithwood was very enchantingly awesome. The descriptions were so marvelously written that I had no trouble at all seeing it all play out as if I was right there in the midst of it all.

With that ending, I can’t wait to dive into the next book in The Wraithwood Trilogy Mordizan for more of this amazing world of magic and all its wonderful characters. I can’t wait to see how Brinnie fairs in the next edition and where this world takes us.

I would like to recommend Wraithwood to all fans of magic and fantasy! Grab your copy of Wraithwood today and step into a new magical world of adventure!
