For tons of readers out there, authors aren't just people who write stories, they are our heroes! They make places that we can only dream about come alive, and help grow our imaginations and help us dream big.
For my stop on this awesome tour, I am hosting Cayla Kluver, author of Legacy and Allegiance (and the upcoming Sacrifice!).
Here's a little bit about Cayla:
Now onto the awesome guest post by the lovely Ms. Kluver!
Top 10 Places Alera and Narian Would Spend a Romantic Vacation
Rohan, Middle Earth: Home of the Horselords. Since both Narian and Alera have a passion for horseback riding, this would be an exquisite vacation destination for the two of them. Staying in the Hall of Meduseld with Theoden King would be comfortable and homey for Alera, since she is royalty and didn’t much care for cave-dwelling in the end of Allegiance.
Camelot. Again, Alera would be comfortable in a castle setting, and Narian could get advice from Merlin on being a magic-wielder. And, as we all know, in Camelot, the rain may never fall ‘til after sundown; by eight the morning fog must disappear. In short, there’s simply no
t a more congenial spot for happily-ever-aftering than here in Camelot.
El Dorado: the City of Gold. Besides being the ultimate sight-seeing destination, the weather in El Dorado is perfect for swimming and tanning. The road to El Dorado is filled with unique and charismatic people, making the trail Alera and Narian would blaze to get there just as enjoyable as their stay in the city.
The Hundred-Acre Wood. This destination is peaceful and beautiful, a gorgeous expanse of land home to heffalumps, woozles, and other wonderful things. There are long, idyllic trails to walk, and plenty of honey to eat, not to mention the unbeatable companionship of the great philosopher Pooh Bear, who could teach Narian to always make today his favorite day.
Gallifrey: Planet of the Time Lords. A quick trip in the Tardis would transport Alera and Narian to a land of silver-leafed trees and a red-orange sky, something the like of which they have never seen before. With Narian’s curiosity for travel and Alera’s appreciation for natural beauty, this would be an ideal getaway for Hytanica’s foremost couple.
Honah Lee. A vacation by the sea would be a refreshing change for Alera and Narian, and again, there is much Narian could potentially learn about his own abilities from Puff the Magic Dragon. Of course, this vacation would benefit Puff as much as it would the couple – he’s been lonely since Little Jackie Paper grew up and moved away.
Collinwood. A decadent getaway, Collinwood is full of twists, turns, and dark shadows to keep Alera and Narian guessing. The patriarch of the Collins clan, Barnabus, has what seems centuries worth of wisdom to impart, and the daylight hours in particular leave plenty of time for the happy couple to be alone.
Madagascar. With beautiful weather and wildlife (both botanical and otherwise), Madagascar is where the party is at. King Julian’s hospitality is unmatched, and he keeps the music blaring at all hours. For anyone who likes to move it, move it, this is the place to be!
Oz. Everyone wants to see the Emerald City, even if it’s only for one short day. Home to the famous Lollipop Guild and one of the best walking tours in the world, there’s no shortage of things to do and see in the land of Oz. Also a plus – Narian already has experience with evil witches, so the Wicked Witch of the West would have trouble catching our lovebirds off guard.
The Ponderosa. Hoss and Joe and Adam know every rock and pine on their father’s sprawling ranch in Nevada. Plenty of horseback riding and wild west adventures would keep Narian and Alera occupied, and the moonlight on Lake Tahoe is as romantic as it gets. Narian would be fascinated by the advanced weaponry of the cowboys, and Alera would love those rollicking dance parties at the ranch house!
