Welcome to the virtual book tour for The Last Motley by Grace Award nominated author DJ Edwardson. To celebrate the book's release the digital version is being offered at the special discounted price of 99 cents, now through February 17th. In addition, you're invited to come along on a virtual treasure hunt visiting some of the places featured in the novel. And to help you along your journey, we're giving away a few prizes, too. So how 'bout them apples? Today's stop is:

Isle of Rinn

The farthest known western point of Arinn, the Isle of Rinn has been uninhabited for centuries. It is dominated by a single mountain, dark gray in color, with a rounded top. Treelines grip its flanks like green skeletal fingers rising out the sea itself. Beyond the mountain, another large hill, completely blanketed with green, melds into the surrounding forest. The rocky coast relents only in a few scattered patches along the northern and southern shores. There white sand beaches brush against the endless sea. Nearly the whole of the island is covered in rainforest. Plant and wildlife can be found in abundance here and the climate is unusually temperate due to favorable ocean currents. Somewhere within the island lie the Ruins of Edinshaw if they have not been covered over by the forest. Tronas the Mad is said to have built a tower here for unknown reasons. Why so far away from civilization? And how did he even build it at all? These are questions only perhaps the greatest scholars now know the answers to.

The Last Motley

The Last Motley Fantasy Book Cover

Motleys. Candy-colored creatures with dark powers to drain the souls of men. That’s what Roderick always thought. Until he met one. Now he’s not so sure. But with seemingly everyone in the province hunting the motley down, he must quickly decide which side he’s on. Is the motley the living nightmare the legends say? Or just a child cursed by magic? Should Roderick save him from an awful fate, or turn him in? Either way, it seems like everyone wants to make sure that this will indeed be the last motley.
