Tournament of Chance Blog Tour, Review & Interview


When a beautiful commoner enters the Tournament of Chance archery competition, her thwarted victory sparks a revolution in the oppressive kingdom of Destiny. Although Heather never believed the legends about the restoration of Ormaria, after three shape-shifting Ormarian wizards awaken from a long magical slumber, she joins their perilous quest to regain the throne. Heather battles vicious predators and angry trolls to free the wizards’ magic, but at a horrendous cost. She is unexpectedly torn from the arms of the man she loves and hurled back in time to fulfill a prophecy not yet written. The ensuing maelstrom tests Heather’s survival skills, wits, and endurance. Will she become an unwritten footnote in history, or can she trust the magic to lead her back to her one true love?

This book had it all, romance, excitment, fantasy and adventure. I really didn't know what I was getting myself into with this book from reading the summary. But I was not disappointed at the end of it.

I really love how unique all the ideas in this book are. It's not your basic fantasy and magic novel. It has a unique foundation in which S.G. Rogers enthralls you from the very beginning and doesn't let you go. You experience emotions all over the spectrum and S.G. makes you really believe these are living, breathing characters. She paints a beautiful story that I just did not want to end.




You can buy Tournament here: AMAZON, SMASHWORDS, B&N

Now time for the interview!!

Welcome to Book Worm Brandy, S.G. Rogers!!

1. Who is your favorite character in Tournament of Chance?

I believe I might be half in love with Dane Ormvalder. He’s tortured by the loss of his father and his kingdom, and because he wasn’t able to prevent the tragedy that befell Ormaria, he somehow feels responsible. As a result, he comes off as arrogant and rude to Heather at first. Over time, however, his kindness, chivalry, and bravery emerge. Plus, he’s quite the best-looking man I’ve ever written.

2. What was your very first story you ever wrote about?

That might have been in grade school, when I composed a melodramatic serial about the evil scientist, Dr. Doom. Dr. Doom was obsessed with my best friend. He was constantly kidnapping her and trying to get her to fall in love with him. It was all very dramatic.

3. If you weren’t a writer, what would you be?

I think I would be completely awesome as a reality TV star on “The Real Housewives of Savannah.” People could follow along as I try to pull myself together daily.

4. What is your least favorite thing about writing?

Promotion and marketing. It’s an uncomfortable necessity, but difficult for a shrinking violet such as myself.

5. What does the future hold for you in regards to other works?

The second volume of my Yden trilogy (“Children of Yden”) has just been released, and I will be whipping the final Yden novel into shape for later in the year. However, I’ll also be developing more titles in the young adult romance genre. I’m kicking that off with a Victorian romance, and we’ll see where I go from there.
