Of Souls and Secrecy

SotS Tour Button

Author Terri Rochenski is blog touring with her brand new release, SECRET OF THE SOULS! For her stop on my blog, I asked her, What is the biggest surprise the story and/or characters in had store for you as the author? Her response – and all the need-to-know novel details – are below. Read on!

This is a LOADED question!! One, unfortunately, I cannot answer.

You see, the ending – the climax – of the Pool of Souls series reveals the SECRET OF THE SOULS, which is hidden from all our characters throughout the entire story. Sneaky gods!! It’s a surprise, a grand old secret, which no reader (as of yet) has seen coming.

This all came about by my own dealings with people in positions of authority overstepping their bounds and taking advantage of those ‘beneath’ them. A pulling of strings behind the scenes. The using of minions to accomplish their lofty goals.

Sacrificing for the great good and all that jazz.

Right? Wrong? Depends upon which side you stand on, and what convictions you hold.

When Hyla learns the truth, her faith is shaken, and it’ll cost the life of one she could have loved.

About Terri Rochenski:

Terri started writing stories in the 8th grade, when a little gnome whispered in her brain. Gundi’s Great Adventure never hit the best seller list, but it started a long love affair with storytelling.

Today she enjoys an escape to Middle Earth during the rare ‘me’ moments her three young children allow. When not playing toys, picking them back up, or kissing boo-boos, she can be found sprawled on the couch with a book or pencil in hand, and toothpicks propping her eyelids open.

Author:  Terri Rochenski

Publisher:  J. Taylor Publishing

Release Date:  October 6, 2014

Keywords:  Adult Fantasy

Thrust out of their homes by a human High Priest on a vengeful mission, the Natives of Derlund no longer have a place to call their own. One escaped capture, however, and now she, Hyla, is the only one who can save her people.

For, Hyla, though, saving her nation isn’t her ultimate goal—returning to the Pool of Souls is. Becoming its Guardian and preserving their faith is her heart’s desire. The perils of her current journey, though, could leave her unable to fulfill that dream.

To find her way back to the Pool, Hyla must live among dangerous, powerful humans willing to defend the Natives, and must submit herself—her Talents—to them. While her protection is paramount, plots to end Hyla’s life will push her to her physical and emotional limits.

On the edge of sanity, her courage tested, and convictions nearly broken, Hyla’s final test of loyalty to her faith comes with the death of one she could have loved.
