I have been SO SO horrible at blog tours lately!! I don't know what is wrong with me, and I am thoroughly ashamed with myself.
Sadly, this post was supposed to go up on the 23rd, and the blog tour ended the 24th. It is therefore, very late. I am going to do better with these from now on. (It is no excuse, I have a lot going on right now. While I am not buried in work, I am dealing with a big change, but I won't let this happen again.)
My apologies to everyone who took part in the tour, and to Jaye.
I will now share the post. It is for the second book in the Ilyon Chronicles written by Jaye L. Knight.The first book was amazing. I plan to buy book two very soon. For those who haven't, see if you can pick up this series. You won't regret it.

About the Book
Following the harrowing events that brought them to Landale Forest, Jace and Kyrin have settled comfortably into their new lives and the mission of protecting those under the emperor’s persecution. The fast approach of winter brings with it the anticipation of a quiet few months ahead. That is until the arrival of four mysterious, dragon-riding cretes who seek aid in a mission of great importance—not only to their own people, but to all followers of Elôm.
Hidden in the vast mining valley north of Valcré, a faithful crete has spent years sharing his knowledge with the destitute miners and their families and is known to possess what may be Arcacia’s last surviving copies of the King’s Scrolls—the Word of Elôm. Joining the cretes, those in Landale must find the crete teacher and bring him to safety, but it is a race against time. Should Daican’s men find him first, execution and the destruction of the Scrolls is certain.
When disaster strikes, all seems lost. Could Elôm have a plan even in the enemy’s triumph?
Available on Amazon!

Interview questions for Aaron
1. You are taking part in a rebellion of sorts (I call it a rebellion but maybe that isn't the right term for it.). Did you ever think you would end up joining it or did it just happen?
I figured someday something might happen with the way persecution around Arcacia has slowly increased, but I definitely didn’t plan on it. Not with how life has been the last several years. For most miners like myself, it’s hard to think too far ahead. We just work every day for our pay and hope it’s enough to keep food on the table. So, I suppose it did sort of just happen, though it wasn’t entirely unexpected.
2. What would you be doing if you weren't taking part in the rebellion?
*laughs* Working. For years I’ve worked six days a week from dawn until dusk. It’s not really much of a life, but it helps keep my family alive. That’s what’s most important to me.
3. Do you have a favourite childhood memory?
Probably when my brother Timothy was born. I was twelve years old and didn’t have any other siblings. I didn’t think I ever would, but then he came along unexpectedly. It was a difficult time because our mother died just after having him, but I’ll never forget how overjoyed I was the first time I got to hold Timothy. I swore to myself I’d be the best older brother there was. I’m still holding myself to that promise.
4. In my world there is a big debate between people about cats and dogs. Maybe you don't have the same problem where you live, but I will ask anyways. Do you consider yourself a cat or a dog person?
Well, I’ve never had either. When you can barely feed yourself and your family, the last thing you’d do is add a pet into the mix, but, if I could, I’d choose a dog. Cats are all right, I suppose, but dogs are so much more loyal.
5. And lastly, what is your biggest fear and why?
Loosing Timothy. I’ve already lost both my parents. In the end, it’s in Elôm’s hands, but I’m willing to do whatever I can to protect him. He’s my little brother, and he helps me to be a better person. I’ve never told him this outright, but I admire him. I’d probably be a much more cynical person if he wasn’t always such a great example of faith.
Again, I am so sorry for forgetting about this post.
