"Full of demons, fae, warriors, kings, elves, trolls, gods, action, romance, Heir to the Sun is a though-provoking and soul/emotion-engaging epic fantasy book... Very highly recommended!" - Bookshelf Confessions
"Lest I only mention the love-y parts of the story *sheepish grin*, the entire plot is fantastic and original. Plain and simple, I just thought this book was great."- Jackie M.
"I enjoyed reading this book both for its romantic and fantasy elements. The sweet, yet forbidden love between both Alluria and Caol'nir, and Asherah and King Lormac kept me turning the pages. Anyone with a strong interest in fantasy, with lots and lots of romance would enjoy this book. Five stars!" - April of A Well Read Woman

I loved the romantic story lines woven into what could have been a book of just violence and war. Although we begin our tale with Hillel as a slave, enduring torture and horrendous brutality, we do not stay there long. Hillel has a feirceness in her that screams to live and free her fellow slaves, she is a Fae who has no memory of her past or any knowledge of why she has been captured and imprisoned, or by whom.
Soon Hillel has a chance to escape and so begins the journey of a woman who would lead her people to freedom. I loved Hillel's (Ashera) character. She is strong but vulnerable and damaged. Of all the characters I wanted her to triumph.
Seeking help from the Elves, Ashera meets the king; Lormac. He falls desperately in love and pursues her with a kindness and patience I found touching.
Woven into the story in it's own thread we follow Alluria, a priestess, and Caol'nir a warrior sworn to protect her and her chastity. Their forbidden love is addicting to read, I wanted them from the start to toss aside their vows and be together, but their character and loyalty played out and I loved them more for it.
We follow our heroes and heroines through a tale of betrayel, Magic, Gods and battle.Read more ›
Of all the fantasy tales I've read, this is one that held my attention from the prologue all the way to the very last sentence. The rich history and vivid descriptions of Parthalan and its inhabitants are colorful, magical, and pure fantasy. I love books that draw the reader into their worlds, the kind of books in which you easily lose yourself, and Heir to the Sun succeeds several times over. I lost track of time reading this book because I kept telling myself, "Just one more chapter... Just one more..."
Personally, I've always loved a good love story and Ms. Provost gives us not one, but two! I knew immediately that I would be swooning over Caol'nir, the guard assigned to watch over the Priestess Alluria, and his heart-wrencing love for her. Then there's Asherah and King Lormac, who are so different but work so perfectly as a couple. I'll say it again, I could not put this book down.
Thank you to Ms. Provost for a beautiful and captivating story. I eagerly await the next installment!
Heir to the Sun is an excellent example of how fantasy and love can be wielded to create a beautiful novel. The plots are intertwined with twists and turns to create a glorious, page-turning tale.
I could not put this book down and as it is the first of the Chronicles of Parthalan; I can’t wait to read those that follow. Anyone that is looking to read a great fantasy novel, this is your ticket to paradise.
The character's connections with one another, as well as the author and her amazing writing skills, make this book definitely one that I'd write home about!
Through further investigation, he discovers that the faeries in other parts of the realms were held hostage by their King in order to force demons on them. The King is hoping to raise a half demon, half fairy army in order to conquer the realm. But the faeries have decided it's time to resist. Asherah decides it's time to fight back. She and her friends brake out of the jail holding them and begin burning down every jail they come to on their way to meet with the Elvin King to beg for his assistance. He agrees, and along the way, he chooses Asherah to be his forever mate. Yes, this does sound like it's just about sex, but in this world, it's another way to say bound to each other.But she isn't sure she can trust him after being a victim for so long, Asherah is unsure how to just be a woman.
While preparations for war are made, Caol'nir finds out something even more frightening than he ever imagined. In order to get the demons to help build the King's army, he promised the head of the demons a woman. But not just any woman. Any woman directly descended from the Gods with beauty and magic beyond compare. However... she sits a little too close to home for Caol'nir. The fight becomes personal as he fights for more than just the realm... his own future.
Can the faeries be saved? Is the King's mixed race too much for everyone to take on?Read more ›
