Book Tour & Giveaway: The Lost Immortals: When Copper Suns Fall by Kasonndra Leigh



Welcome to my stop on the Lost Immortals When Copper Sun Falls book tour. Brought to you by Reading Addiction Book Tours. Here you can read a synopsis of the book, my review, and Excerpt and a Giveaway! I also have a bio of author Kasonndra Leigh. Don’t forget to visit the other blogs on this tour for more information and other reviews about this book and author.


Summary:
It has been fifty-five years since the angels of the Apocalyptic War attempted to wipe out humanity. Now a new nation has been built where alchemy is forbidden, and angels fear for their lives as they hide among the mortals. 
The city's leaders share one view on the ancestors of angels: shoot first, no questions. 
When her twin brother falls into a strange coma, sixteen-year-old Chela Prizeon vows to discover her role among these exiles, the royal angels known as the Lost Immortals. 
Chela's only hope lies with the mysterious, but infuriating leader of a rebel group. But can she trust this boy, someone who can control her dreams and her heart. 
Escape into a world filled with celestial creatures, fascinating villainy, high-stake choices, and forbidden romance.

My Review:


I was not sure what to expect from this book, but being blown away from start to finish isn’t what I expected. It was so beautifully written, it had me captivated right from the movement of Chela’s twin brother’s hand (Micah), who is in a strange coma.

KaSonndra Leigh did an amazing job with this book. I fell in love with the characters, its not like most fantasy books I had read, it has that deep meanings and feelings in it. I really loved the main character Chela, she is so strong, determined, adventurous and fiercely protective of those she cares about.
This book has it all, we have angels, and magic, and its set in a dystopian type future, but with all the deep feelings I mentioned in the fantasy world.

Plenty excitement with these characters who are emotionally charged with the adventures of the celestial beings and angelic realms. I loved it.

I love the fierce determination Chela has to find out what happened with her twin brother, and why he is still in this coma, she feels something is not right, and is determined to save him. Before they pull the plug.

I do not want to say much past what is in the blurb, so not to spoil anything, but will say, I enjoyed the romance delevoping between Chela and……. Yeah, not gonna tell you who, lol. You can find out. As in the beginning, you do not know, 2 mysterious hotties show up, and it keeps you guessing for a bit. Don’t want to ruin that for you.

Overall a fantastic read, for teens up to upper adults, it has it all for everyone. Your heart will swell up at the mushy parts, and get angry along with Chela too.

5 out of 5 stars for me. Pick it up, you wont be sorry. I am looking forward to the sequel.

Guest Blog from KaSonndra Leigh Author of The Lost Immortals: When Copper Suns Fall

First I’d like to say thank you for allowing me this opportunity to visit your wonderful blog. Readers and bloggers have been so kind to me during this adventure. I can’t wait to share the story behind the music on my website, the heart of When Copper Suns Fall. I think every author has some kind of motivation technique when crafting a scene. For me, it’s about taking the essence of the novel as a whole when writing a scene. And to do that without losing sight of the story elements, I use music. Copper Suns is a cross-genre novel. It is pretty much a dark urban fantasy, but with heavy dystopian elements. So I listened to music that put me in the mood.
Here’s a list of seven songs that very much influenced my writing process:
   1)   Furious Angels by Rob Dougan
Faris’s Song - Kind of goes without saying. But the song is about a guy who loses his fiancée in a car accident. He makes a promise to her passing spirit that if she goes away, then his furious angels will find her and bring her back to him.  Unfortunately, I can’t say too very much about what scene this was relevant to and why. But when you read the book, you’ll automatically know which one it relates to.

   2)  Who Am I Living For? By Katy Perry
Chela’s Song- If you’ve heard Katy Perry’s heavy base and hard beats coupled with some pretty haunting lyrics, then you’ll understand why this is Chela’s song.

   3)   Teardrop by Massive Attack
Chela’s song- One suggestion. Watch the video trailer and then listen to the song.

   4)  Bring Me to Life by Evanescence
A song that always assisted me with focusing on the core being of my character Seth Alton. Listening to the words on this one tells you so much about him.

   5)   My Immortal by Evanescence
Kind of goes without saying again. And I truly don’t want to ruin the story by talking too much about this one.  So, I’ll let my readers listen to the song and place it with the right scene when reading.

   6)  Uprising by Muse
An overall feel for the dystopian nature behind the book. This one covers the entire series as well.

   7)  Paint the Sky with Stars by Enya
Okay. So there’s a romantic element in the story if you haven’t guessed by now. And this song is so pretty and light. There’s a scene in the book where you’ll be able to picture lying there and listening to this song in the background. Ahhh. LoL. All right, giving out too much information.
You can listen to all of these songs on my website. Two of them (Furious Angels and Teardrop) have been removed for some reason. But you can listen to them on Amazon and tons of other places. I do hope you enjoy reading the world I’ve created in When Copper Suns Fall. Once again, I’d like to thank Nikki for hosting me on her site today.
