Book Blitz: Before the Full Moon Rises by M.J. Bell



Before the Full Moon Rises
Series- Chronicles of the Secret Prince Book # 1
By- M.J. Bell  

Deston Lespérance grew up believing faeries and monsters are just stories told to children at bedtime. However, when his mother mysteriously vanishes and he stumbles into the mystical realm of Tir na-nÓg, he discovers the shocking truth that these beings are not only real, they hold the key to his future. With a new friend, Margaux, and Excalibur’s twin brother sword, Caluvier, at his side, Deston races against time to find his mother and the Light Crystal before the full moon rises on the autumnal equinox. The odds are stacked against them and the obstacles they run into push the limit of what two teenagers can handle: an attack by gremlin-like creatures; captured by 6 foot tall vampire bats; hunted by a giant wolf, and almost lost forever in the mist of Avalon. Yet Deston doesn't give up, for he vowed to do whatever it takes to get his mother back—even if that means fighting the devil himself. The thing is … when he made that pledge he had no idea how close he would have to come to doing just that!

  2. Thanks! I actually started out with the name of Daniel, but it just didn't work once I really got into the story. And out of nowhere, Deston came up and it's perfect!
    hope you like the story as much as you like the name! :)

    1. I love coming up with names for my novels. I just had to go through and change a name in an almost complete manuscript. Because her name had been a color, I couldn't use ctrl F. But it was worth it.
