Blog Tour: Molly's Diary Reveal & Giveaway - Fields of Elysium by A.B. Whelan

Day 14: The Motley Sisters

Tessa: She is twenty years old, an orphan, a Motley (half Arkanian and half Terrakan), a Sentinel Apprentice, the nicest of the Motley sisters, but don’t let her cute face mislead you. When it comes to battle she’s as tough as my grandmother’s steak. Leena: she is twenty-three years old, a bitter, mean war machine, a strong Sentinel Apprentice and guardian of Sesmars.


Fields of Elysium
A YA romantic fantasy 

“I don’t feel comfortable with this,” I whispered to Victor, but obviously not quietly enough because it was Ulka de Tino who responded.
“Come here, girl. Don’t be scared. I have just the right dress for you here. I wore it on my wedding day,” she said, taking me by my arm. I looked back at Victor, panic disfiguring my face.
How am I ever gonna get out of this?
Victor just shrugged, his face expressing his amusement.
I frowned at him.
Ulka de Tino pulled aside the heavy dark drapes that hung from the ceiling next to the bed, revealing a doorway. As we entered the next room, a strong, perfumed draft struck me.
 “Leena. Tessa.” She pointed at two girls, who could easily pass for Amazons, standing next to a giant tub filled with bathwater.
Leena and Tessa? Kamm’s Motley sisters?
Leena’s eyes met mine first.
She seemed to be in her twenties, her body slim yet strong, but I couldn’t be sure because her smoky eyes and bright red lips made her look ageless. Her smooth black hair was combed back, exposing a porcelain face. Her one-piece black leather outfit was sleeveless with a deep V-cut that gashed all the way down to her navel. That she wasn’t wearing a bra was more than obvious. The part of her outfit that could be called a skirt went down below her knees, but was slit on both sides of her thighs, putting her sexy legs on display. Red tattoos decorated her muscular arms and black leather bands sat tight around her wrists. A thick red belt held her dress together, ending in a circular golden buckle with a carved eagle in the middle.
Tessa had the same black, smoky eyes, but her crimson hair was cropped short and high on her nape while her long, side-swept bangs washed in front of her eyes. Her lips were black, just like her nails. She had on tight, shiny pants in the color of a cherry, and a black tube-top. A spiked silver collar circled her neck, covering her collarbone. She was unhealthily skinny looking, and couldn’t be much older than I was.

In these girls’ presence, I felt intimidated at once but I also wondered how they would be able to make me look suitable for a masquerade party. I was sure to get an old, moth-worn dress and a vampire make-up.

From the Author 

I'm a Hungarian born American writer, who was lucky enough to travel Europe, Africa, and The Middle East and live in Ecuador, Crete and Italy. I graduated as a computer engineer, thus if anybody tells you math and literature can't walk hand in hand, don't believe them. *smile* I'm the author of the Fields of Elysium saga, which I like to call a young adult romantic fantasy. The first book of the series was inspired by amazing movies like Dirty Dancing, Avatar, and Twilight and earned praise from prestigious review companies and readers. I'm currently working on book three and four, and planning to write one more novella to finish the series, dedicated to another very interesting character in my story, The Prophet, the mysterious leader of the Arkanians. Find me on Social sites. Friend me. Follow me. Message me. I love to connect.
