On Wings Of Chaos by Travis Simmons (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #5) - Book Tour



NEWLY RELEASED.....
On Wings of Chaos (The Revenant Wyrd Saga #5) 

The captivating sequel to A Guardian of Shadows.

In the mystical lands of the Great Realms, Angelica, Jovian, and Joya search for their kidnapped sister, Amber. Their quest has led them through many dangers and revelations, but nothing has prepared them for what’s about to come.

A dream reveals what Angelica and Jovian are, but what does it mean for their future? There’s little time to dwell on this, for the chaos dwarves, the scourge of the Realm of Earth, are gathering at the gates of the Guardian’s Keep. The dwarves have the stone Wyrders’ Bane, and they’ve shown they know how to unleash its plague upon all those who wield the magical force of wyrd. With casters neutralized, a mighty blow has been dealt to the allied forces. The dwarves and trolls attack the keep, and the struggle to survive the war in the north is upon them.

Angelica, Jovian, and Joya’s journey is far from easy, but the future looks even bleaker when visions of a gathering darkness in the west and a congregation of angels could mark the beginning of the final war on the Ever After.

Buy the Book from 17th July at


My Review

This is book #5 in the series. This series is not for the young reader as there is some violence and adult situations that are not appropriate for all ages. The story line is also a bit complex, and you need to read the entire series to follow it.

Travis has an imagination that brings you right into the story and alongside the characters in their continuing journey. I was starting to get concerned as the series continued on (too much of something can get a bit boring), but this book shed light on some things for me and was engaging.


About the Author
Travis has been writing since he was 14.  He began writing a book called "The Calling of the Two" and while writing that on and off he started uncovering another idea.

"Yes, this is all well and good, but what about before? What happened in the world before these characters came into it?" He always knew there was a "before" and as he started wondering about it he got ideas. At first they were little ideas but as he discovered the names for his characters a whole story about them emerged.
Travis started working on The Revenant Wyrd Saga several years back and he is very happy he did because hearing and documenting Jovian and Angelica's story has been one wild ride for him.  He has also written the Infernal Design series.
 

He lives in a small town at the base of the Adirondack Mountains and hoofing around my neck of the woods gives him a ton of inspiration for his novels.   He loves research, and speculating on different ideas and theories.

KIND Nuts & Spices - NEW Flavors! #kindawesome #review



Product Description

KIND has added Caramel Almond and Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond to its KIND Nuts and Spices line of bars. These seemingly indulgent flavors expand the line to include eight flavors containing only 5g of sugar (or less) - and nothing artificial.

KIND's newest flavors are further proof that you can naturally lower the sugar in a snack while still maintaining a sweet and indulgent taste. Each bar is also crafted from a foundation of whole almonds which recent studies have shown have life-extending properties.

Caramel Almond and Sea Salt is made with a seemingly indulgent blend of savory sea-salt and sweet caramel drizzled over crunchy almonds. This bar is a delightfully low-sugar healthy snack that only tastes like dessert.

Dark Chocolate Mocha Almond is made with dark roast coffee and whole almonds blended with honey and drizzled in dark chocolate to form a bar that, with just 5g of sugar, only tastes indulgent.

Both flavors contain 7g fiber, 6g protein and 5g sugar.

CHALLENGE: We challenge you to pair these bars with that 3PM pick me up of coffee or tea

My Reivew

We absolutely LOVE these KIND snack bars! Amazingly delicious, the Caramel Almond and Sea Salt is my favorite. It really feels like an indulgence. Delicious and healthy? Yes, please!

The Illuminator Series Article #5: Success without Failure

"If you wait until all the lights are green before you leave home, you'll never get started on your trip to the top." - Zig Ziglar

How powerful this quote is!

Too often I sit and wait for all of the lights to be green. Waiting for someone to give me the go ahead. Waiting until I think I cannot fail.

But the simple truth is this: there cannot be success without some failure. It takes backbone to live the life you want and failure is the only thing that can give you proper perspective on success. Very simply, you cannot know the beauty of success without the ugliness of failure.



Failure is all part of the road to success. You build on it. You use it as a stepping stone, as Johnny Cash once said. A good quote to live by is "Failure should be our teacher, not our undertaker".  It is the people who are afraid of failure that never feel success.

Giving yourself permission to fail, also gives you permission to succeed.

Failure is such a strong word. Because, really, there is no failure when you are being faithful and pursuing the things of God.

"Commit your work to the LORD, then your plans will succeed" Proverbs 16:3

Set your heart upon the LORD, choose to commit your work to Him, and you will find that you are more likely to pursue godly things. This is exactly how the scripture "Delight yourself in the LORD and he will give you the desires of your heart" works. When we put that scripture into context, we can see what it actually means. Commitment to Him, learning His Word and developing a relationship with Him will change our desires into godly ones.

When we pursue the things of God, the light will always be green.
