Welcome to the book tour for Of Legends and Roses by Ashley W. Slaughter. Read on for details and the chance to win a fabulous giveaway! Oh and stay tuned for the release of the second installment in the series Of Deceit and Snow which comes out this November!
Of Legends and Roses (The Crowned Chronicles #1)
Publication Date: August 31, 2021
Genre: YA Fantasy
A realm touched and forgotten by magic.
A young queen orphaned by disease.
A prince after her heart.
Queen Rosemary Avelia knows little about ruling a kingdom, and even less so about the ancient legends of her land. Since no one has been born Talented in centuries, she simply scoffs at the idea of magic.
However, when the charming Prince Gryffin Danicio arrives just as her kingdom is under a deadly threat, he shows her that not all kingdoms of the Magian Peninsula have so quickly dismissed the legends of the Talented. Perhaps the Talented should not so easily be forgotten.
Of Legends and Roses is the first book in The Crowned Chronicles, a series following passionate and determined Queen Rosemary as she faces reign, love, the threat of war, and the mystifying world of the Talented.

Of Legends and Roses by Ashley W. Slaughter is a FANTASTIC fantasy novel that I really had trouble putting down. I almost read this in one sitting, the only thing that stopped me was sleep!
This is the first book in The Crowned Chronicles series and I already can’t wait for the next book innthe series. The writing is fantastic. I love the world building. I love the politics and the mystery. Such compelling story telling!
I love the characters. They are so well written and the author does a fantastic job keeping each person separate so it was never confusing to tell who was who.
Overall, I absolutely loved Of Legends and Roses and cannot wait to continue the series. Highly recommended!

I heard Zeke’s voice again. Point your blade downward.
With every emotion swirling through my head, I almost laughed; even in his absence, Zeke was trying to tell me what to do.
But I listened to him as I pushed up from the cobblestoned street and let the tip of my sword hang downward toward the ground. Don’t relax. I tried to feign fatigue, which really wasn’t too much of a challenge, but I kept my arms taut. Ready.
A wicked smile spread across my opponent’s face, and he strode forward, his weapon glinting in the sun, ready to strike.
Then, just before I was within his sword’s reach, I shot the tip of my blade upward, and I thrust my sword forward with every fiber of strength contained within me.
Ashley W. Slaughter was born and raised in south Louisiana, among sugarcane fields lining the banks of the Mississippi River. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from the University of Louisiana at Monroe in 2018 and worked as a wildlife biologist before pursuing her career as an author. Writing has always been a passion of hers, as shown through her near-to-bursting manila folder of short stories she’d written throughout grade school, and the COVID-19 pandemic has allowed her to rediscover this passion. She enjoys hiking, kayaking, spending time with her husband and pets, and, of course, reading.
