The Chronicles of Fire and Ice (The Legend of The Archangel #1) by L.L. Hunter Blog Tour Stop

Is love stronger than race?

The world is changeing as we know it, the human race is dwindling, but so are the angels. In order to preserve their bloodlines they have bred with humans, creating a new race called Nephilim. But there is one race that is more endangered than humans or Seraphim, Archangels.
As most people believe the Archangels have become extinct, rumours surface of a Legend; that a baby was born out of flame, the offspring of an archangel.

Dyston Blackbell is tasked to find and protect this child. He sends her strange dreams in hope that she will find him. When he discovers that she has enrolled at his family’s angel academy in Melbourne, he will do anything to protect Scarlett. But when he finds himself falling for her the Heavenly realm rejects him.

But 21-year-old Scarlett Porter realises that being half Archangel has some advantages. She has developed a unique trait, one that marks her as an Archangel. Will she keep it to herself or use it to fight back?

When an old enemy resurfaces, The Lucifites, Scarlett discovers that Dyston’s older brother Lakyn is at the helm of their sinister plans; to destroy the Nephilim race or use Scarlett for their own selfish purposes when they find out who she really is.

And when Lakyn discovers that Scarlett had only seduced him to rescue Dyston from his prison in the Realm of Light, it sends him on a journey of self-discovery and destruction. One that sees him venturing farther off course than his father would like. Will he choose a new life of love or his old life of darkness?

The Chronicles of Fire and Ice is a book like no other. I have to say that I absolutely love this book and I can't wait for book two. The cover first off is so eye catching it grabs you and makes you want to read it right away. So I was so excited when I saw this book was going to be on a blog tour I had to sign up. I am so glad I did because when I started reading I was introduced to a new world and everyone who knows me knows I love angel stories and so when I started reading the blurb I was like oh man I am so gonna love this story and you know what I do because L.L. Hunter did such a superb job of describing this new world that the moment you start reading it you are captivated and can't put the book down.

In The Chronicles of Fire and Ice the world as we know it is dwindling away. The humans and the angels are both becoming extinct. The humans and the angels will come together to mate and create a new breed called Nephilim. Together the two races will be saved. But there is another race rumored to have become extinct and that is the archangels. The archangels are the strongest angels and they are protected but something sinister is going on and no one can quite figure out what is going on. There is a legend that says a child is born out of flame from an archangel that will save the world. Dyston Blackbell is entrusted with finding and protecting this child. So when he finds the child he is surprised she will be so close to him by training at the angel academy he is excited because he will be able to keep her safe from danger or so he thinks. Dyston never in a million years expected to fall in love with Scarlett. He is supposed to protect her and nothing more but the more time he spends with her the more he falls in love with her. This is a huge no no for the archangel and he is soon thrown out of heaven for falling in love with her.

So not only has he fallen for Scarlett but she soon finds out that she has special abilities and she is not sure if she should share them with anyone. As Scarlett gets closer to Dyston the two of them find out that they have enemies that will stop at nothing to destroy them. The Lucifites are dead set against anything normal and at peace so when they discover Dyston and Scarlett together they know they have to destroy them. They kidnap Dyston and Scarlett is determined to find out what happened to him and rescue him from The Lucifites. She never expected Lakyn Dyston's brother to be the one to kidnap his own brother. Scarlett will do anything to get Dyston back and what she does will surprise you. Never ever underestimate the power of love because Scarlett is determined to get Dyston back.

What she does next will shock you. Will Lakyn give Dyston back? What will happene when Lakyn finds out the truth about what Scarlett did to him? Will Lakyn choose the light or will he fall further into darkness? Man this is a MUST READ book because the twists and turns keep you at the edge of your seat reading faster and faster to see what happens to Lakyn and Dyston!


Today we have a special guest on A Diary Of A Book Addict. Please help me in welcoming L.L. Hunter the author of The Chronicles of Fire & Ice. This book is one of those books that grabs you by the first page and half way through your like OMG is this really almost done no no way can that be I need more! I tell you I was scrolling through my Kindle thinking something was wrong with it when it ended but no we have to wait for the next book. So I am honored to have L.L. on here answering a few questions for us readers who love her story. 

What inspired you to write The Chronicles of Fire & Ice? 

The inspiration for the story originally came from a dream, the prologue was a dream, and then I began playing around with names. I made Dyston’s up. Then all their traits came to me as I developed each character. 

Did you do a lot of research for this series? 

I did hardly any research at all. Just a bit on the hierarchy of angels and certain landmarks which I had forgotten the names of since going there. 

Do the humans regret breeding with the angels? 

Some of them didn’t have a choice, but some humans fell in love with the angels, so I wouldn’t say they regret it. Its just now they’ve realized their mistake and what they have done to their race, now they have to protect themselves. 

What exactly are Nephilims? 

Nephilim are half human and half angel. 

What powers do the Nephilim posses? 

Certain Nephilim possess different powers, or traits. Such as; healing, the ability to control the weather, the ability to place dreams in people’s heads. 

How many books are going to be in the series? 

I currently have 4 books planned for this series, but I am slowly working on a sister series to this about one of the smaller characters. 

Can you give us a sneak peek into book two? When can we expect it out? 

Book 2, The Chronicles of Blood and Stone, follows Jacob has he begins to deal with spoiler alert … Kat’s death. Losing someone makes you do crazy things. I am hoping to publish it late 2013 as I am going overseas. 

Thank you so much L.L. for stopping by and sharing your world with us.
