Book Spotlight: Minstrel's Call by Jenelle Leanne Schmidt

Today, we're excited to be part of a blog tour celebrating Minstrel's Call, the latest release from Jenelle Leanne Schmidt! Before we spotlight her book, here's a little about the author:

Jenelle Schmidt grew up in the northern-Midwest. She now resides with her husband and their four adorable children in the wilds of Wisconsin. Jenelle fell in love with reading at a young age during family story-times when her father would read out loud to her and her siblings each night before bed. Her imagination was captured by authors such as Madeleine L’Engle, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, and Lloyd Alexander. It wasn’t long before she began making up her own stories and sharing them with her family. To this day she enjoys creating exciting adventure tales filled with poignant themes and compelling characters in the fantasy and sci-fi genres.

You can connect with Jenelle on her website, Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads, or Amazon author page.

And here's the back cover blurb for Minstrel's Call:

War threatens. The game board is set. But the Minstrel is missing...

Advancing his growing power, the Dread Prince breaks free of his prison and brings a faction of dragons under his control, stirring unrest and hatred in the newly united kingdoms of Tellurae Aquaous.

When the dragon wards of Kallayohm are targeted in a ruthless attack, the High King travels there to administer justice. But the trial results in a crippling blow that leaves him reeling.

On the heels of defeat, an unexpected message from the erstwhile Minstrel arrives, pleading with his friends for rescue. Together, the High King and his companions must follow the fragile trail, braving peril and darkness that will test the measure of them all...

Sounds awesome, right? Minstrel's Call is book 4 in the Minstrel's Song series. You can find Minstrel's Call on Amazon and Goodreads. As part of her blog tour, Jenelle Leanne Schmidt is doing a giveaway! Here's a note from the author about the prizes and giveaway terms:

I am giving away 1 Dragon Sword, 1 252-piece puzzle of the artwork for Minstrel’s Call, and 1 signed paperback copy of Minstrel’s Call. (Due to standard-postal shipping restrictions of blades outside the continental USA, and the lack of reliable dragons these days, I cannot offer the sword to winners outside the U.S. However, if someone outside the U.S. wins that particular item, I will send them a $35 Amazon Gift Card instead).

Enter below! Congratulations on your new release, Jenelle!!
