BBNYA Semifinalist Spotlight Tour | 10th September 2021
As you are quite aware by now, I am part of the BBNYA panel. Which is why I am happy to participate in the ongoing semifinalist spotlight tours of the BBNYA.
If you aren’t aware of the BBNYA awards, it is an annual award for indie books. BBNYA is organised by TheWriteReads in association with The Folio Society. The best part of BBNYA is that it is read and scored by book bloggers from all over the world.
Today’s BBNYA semifinalist spotlight features ‘Elemental Links’ by M A Leon.
“Take him and run.” The last words of Jake’s mother urged him to save his brother,
Louie. Jake and Louie get thrown into the outside world, where Jake learns his skill
with a sword can save their lives, and Louie, gifted with elemental magic, soon
learns his magic is part of something much bigger: a world of spirits that wage a war

Elabrium? Will their allies stand with them against the horde of necrom, whose mere
presence threatens not just themselves, but their newfound friends as well?
