#Tour #Review & #Giveaway of To Bear An Iron Key by @JackieMorseKess #Hosted @chapterxchapter

To Bear an Iron Key is the first in a new and exciting series from acclaimed author Jackie Morse Kessler. 

Five years ago, the young witch Bromwyn refused a gift from the powerful fairy king. Tonight, on Midsummer, that decision comes back to haunt her. When her best friend Rusty picks the wrong pocket, he and Bromwyn are all that stand between their village and the rampaging fairies who have pushed through the World Door. If they cannot outwit the fairy king and queen before the World Door closes at sunrise, the friends will lose everything—their village, Bromwyn's magic, and Rusty's life. 

From To Bear an Iron Key by Jackie Morse Kessler 

"Bromwyn turned to face the burning fields. Reaching deep inside of herself, she closed her eyes and touched the core of her power, the place where her magic lived, where it connected her to all of Nature. She held onto that magic, let it fill her almost to the bursting point, and then she cast it out onto the fields. It blanketed the rows of spelt, and she felt as it rode the wind—Air—and then touched the grain—Earth—and then sizzled around the fire."



Some kids want to grow up to be doctors, or movie stars, or political assassins. Me, I wanted to draw comic books. Not Archies, either--superhero comic books. Maybe it was all the heavily muscled guys in spandex...

Around the time I was 15, I realized that as much as I enjoyed drawing (note that I'm saying nothing about the quality of those pics), it was a lot of fun putting words in the characters' mouths. I didn't know the term 'fanfic' back then, but I started writing stories about the X-Men, Alpha Flight, and the Teen Titans. Didn't do anything with those stories, other than horrify my mother. She asked why I couldn't write nice stories, you know, about bunnies. Nope--me, I wanted to write about power. About magic. About hot guys in spandex. And about beating those guys bloody and senseless. (In retrospect, maybe I really did want to horrify my mother. Hey, not my fault. When I was a kid, I busted her doodling on the cover of New Teen Titans Number 6. Argh!)

So maybe it's ironic that the book I wound up writing had nothing to do with overly muscled men and everything to do with scantily clad women. (Well, temporarily scantily clad.) Oh, right, and demons.

This was a great book.  I loved the authors other series Riders of the Apocalypse and this one was no different.  I really loved the setting and plot and the characters were just great. I can't wait to see what this author has instore for us!
