Rising Book 1: Resistance is Now Available!

Today is the release event for my latest novel, Rising Book 1: Resistance! I'm so excited to finally get to share this with everyone. :D It's also the start of the blog tour--you can visit the awesome Barbara Kloss's blog to check that the first stop on the tour.

All Alphonse wants is a quiet summer at home before his final months at university. What he gets is a half-dead stranger on his doorstep and the task of delivering a package to the leader of his home country. Not long after he boards a train toward the capital, he's attacked by knights, elite soldiers of the neighboring king.

Alphonse is temporarily rescued by Mairwyn, a mechanic with a haunted past and a deep hatred of knights. Together, they attempt to carry out Alphonse's urgent errand, only to learn that if they fail, countless people will die.

And even if they succeed, they may not be able to prevent the war that lurks on the horizon.

  1. This sounds like a fantasy mayhaps set in the modern world. How unique and congratulations!

    1. Thanks!! It's an alternate world, sort of fantasy-ish, but it's science-based instead of magic, so it's more accurately sci-fi. I always think of sci-fi as being futuristic, though, and this isn't. ;) It was so much fun pinpointing genre.

  2. Hooray! Congratulations, Laura. That's so exciting.

  3. Congratulations! That's very exciting!

  4. Love the cover and the story line. It is on my Goodreads list, to be purchased asap.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
