Book 2

Legends of Oblivion Series

Andrea Cooper

Book Description:

In a time of false peace, the dead rise as soldiers for the Warloc’s scheme. For thousands of years he has stood ready for the final battle. Though the witch and her cursed Elvin have destroyed his physical body, now with his protégé, he has honed a new way to wage war.

Shunned by her own people and weary-hearted from centuries of lost loves, Elvin warrior Mirhana scours the land to silence the undead. Her heart has turned as cold as the sword she wields, until a prince seeks her aid.

Never has Prince Landon met a woman like Mirhana. Both beautiful and deadly, she haunts his dreams. The battle at hand becomes more enchanting than fighting to remain true to his unseen betrothed.

When a traitor emerges, new alliances are tested and the only remaining hope is to follow the prophecy and find the ... Son of Dragons.

excerpt

Clean from the bath, Landon let the air from the open window dry his hair. Dressed only in trousers, he leaned against the windowsill.

He thought he smelled the hint of roses and heat on the breeze. Movement from the street below caught his eye. He leaned out, squinting into the night.

Torches lined the cobbled street corners. A cloaked figure waited. Then the innkeeper rushed outside. His hands flew in gestures as the figure nodded.

Then he pointed to the window where Landon watched. At the same instant, the cloaked figure followed his finger’s path to Landon. Green eyes that seemed to glow met his.

Landon jumped up and cursed when his head hit the bottom of the window. When he looked back, both figures were gone.

Thinking the innkeeper would send guards, he waited with his sword in hand and his stare riveted on the door. No one came. He must be getting paranoid, thinking there was a ghost or enemy around every corner. His eyelids grew heavy as he waited for a fight that failed to materialize. Finally, he rolled his shoulders back to ease out the tension.

Still, he couldn’t stop thinking about those piercing emerald eyes. They’d belonged to a woman; he could tell. There was intelligence and cunning in them. Her stare felt as though she saw through the façade he often wore as prince and to please others, and into his kajh.

A woman who was not afraid, but used to being feared. It unnerved him, yet excited him. His pulse quickened and his loins tightened at the thought of those eyes filled with passion for him.

Better get some sleep before the night was gone. Tomorrow, he’d tell Gillespie about what he saw. He doubted he could explain those captivating green eyes that continued to haunt him even now.

Review:

“We are introduced to new and wonderful creatures, and meet up with those we know and love from the first book, as each character's unique role and journey begins to intersect... and each will have a pivotal role in the outcome of an epic battle that is about to take place. Deception, self discovery, and sacrifices will be made, as each character's true role is uncovered... and in these magical lands, nothing is at it seems…Still, the book builds on the last with new and enchanting worlds, exciting creatures, and breathtaking originality. ..A really fun read, and a complimentary addition to the Legends of Oblivion series!”

Here are my top 10 Most Romantic Quotes of all time (so far):

10. “THE LUCKY ONE” (2012)
This one has two awesome quotes:

“How do you even explain something that you can't even understand yourself?”

and

“You should be kissed, every day, every hour, every minute.”

-Logan Thibault (Zac Efron) to Beth Clayton (Taylor Schilling)

9. “A WALK TO REMEMBER” (2002)
Jamie saved my life. She taught me everything. About life, hope and the long journey ahead. I'll always miss her. But our love is like the wind. I can't see it, but I can feel it.

-Paul (Keanu Reeves) about Victoria (Aitana Sánchez-Gijón)

8. “DRACULA” (1992)
I have crossed oceans of time to find you.”

Dracula (Gary Oldmanto) Mina (Winona Ryder)

7. “THE ILLUSIONIST” (2006)
[referring to the years he'd spent traveling]
Eisenheim: I always meant to return. I just...I kept thinking I'd find it around the next corner.
Sophie: What?
Eisenheim: A real mystery. I saw remarkable things, but the only mystery I never solved was why my heart couldn't let go of you.

-If you haven’t seen this movie, I recommend it. It is a bit slow in parts, but watch it until the end before rendering a verdict.

6. "THE NOTEBOOK" (2004)

“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, you and me, every day. Will you do something for me, please? Just picture your life for me? 30 years from now, 40 years from now? What’s it look like? If it’s with him, go. Go! I lost you once, I think I can do it again. If I thought that’s what you really wanted. But don’t you take the easy way out.”

—Noah (Ryan Gosling) to Allie (Rachel McAdams)

5. "NOTTING HILL" (1999)

“Don’t forget I’m just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her.” 

—Anna (Julia Roberts) to William (Hugh Grant)

4. "DIRTY DANCING" (1987)

“Me? I’m scared of everything. I’m scared of what I saw, I’m scared of what I did, of who I am, and most of all I’m scared of walking out of this room and never feeling the rest of my whole life the way I feel when I’m with you.”

—Baby (Jennifer Grey) to Johnny (Patrick Swayze).

(Of course, we can’t forget Johnny later in the movie saying, “Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”)

Tied for number 4:

“THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER” (2012)
Sam: Why do I, and everyone I love, pick people who treat us like we're nothing?
Charlie: We accept the love we think we deserve.

3. “TITANTIC” (1997)

“Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me… it brought me to you … You must do me this honor, Rose. Promise me you’ll survive. That you won’t give up, no matter what happens, no matter how hopeless. Promise me now, Rose, and never let go of that promise.”

—Jack (Leonardo DiCaprio) to Rose (Kate Winslet)

This would be number 2 on the list, if this had had a happy ending earlier on J

2. “SLEEPLESS IN SEATTLE” (1993)

“It was a million tiny little things that, when you added them all up, they meant we were supposed to be together … and I knew it. I knew it the very first time I touched her. It was like coming home. .. only to no home I’d ever known … I was just taking her hand to help her out of a car and I knew. It was like … magic.”

—Sam (Tom Hanks) about his deceased wife

1. “GONE WITH THE WIND” (1939)

“No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”

-Rhett Butler (Clark Gable) to Scarlett O’Hara (Vivien Leigh)

How about you? What is your favorite romantic quote from a movie?

 

abouttheauthor

clip_image004_thumb

Growing up in Houston, Texas, Andrea has always created characters and stories. But it wasn't until she was in her late twenties that she started writing novels.

What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids (two boys and a girl).

Andrea writes paranormal and historical romance. When not writing or reading, one may find Andrea dancing in Zumba.

She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.

  3. Wow the Titanic quote snapped to the scene in the movie - guess I watched too many times. The Gone with the Wind quote - I chuckled. That scene always made me chuckle- but I'm probably the only person who doesn't like GWTW.
