Blog Tour: The Sand Prince (Promo + Excerpt)

0956870345642About the Book “When the storm came, it was made of magic, not rain, and when it had passed, the life and the city Hellne knew were changed forever.” In Kim Alexander’s debut novel she weaves a witty, epic fantasy brimming with diverse characters and plenty of intrigue.
Two worlds 
On the war-ravaged demon world of Eriis, Hellne, the fierce young queen, fights to keep her people alive, and to keep her son’s parentage a secret. On the green and gentle human world of Mistra, the demons have faded into myth. Only a handful of old men and children still guard The Door between the worlds. Bound by magic Rhuun, the Prince of Eriis, uncovers a sultry book written by a human, sparking an obsession with the other world. When he is forced to flee Eriis, he must travel through The Door or pay the price in blood.
Divided by a door 
The humans of Mistra are not what Rhuun was expecting—and one insufferable young woman in particular is about to find out that the demons of Eriis are not mythological after all . . .

An exclusive excerpt from the book!
Rhuun learns a couple of important lessons:

"Where are your little friends, Beast?" called Niico. "No girls to protect you today? No one to hold your hand?" His friends were holding each other up laughing, and sending short, sharp blasts at his legs. Niico took a great leap into the air, instantly sprung his wings and hovered directly above Rhuun. His hands were cupped, no doubt preparing a bolt. "Hey, look up here! I'm talking to you!"
Niico, rather than using his flame, dumped a double handful of ash on Rhuun's head. For a long moment he could neither see nor breathe. But he could hear them laughing.
"Freak! Beast!" they shouted.
Do it now, said Ilaan's voice in his head. Or do it never.
He stood. He reached up. He reached all the way up and caught the tip of Niico's wing as he swung past. Instead of a graceful arc carrying him up and away, Niico's momentum carried him face first into the dirt. Momentum was just as interesting as Rhuun hoped.
Rhuun realized he was still holding the first flange of Niico's wing, now dislocated and twisted completely behind his back. He stretched it out and brought his foot down on it, crushing the fragile bones and delicate membrane under his heel. A leathery shred came off in his hand. Niico screamed like a new fledged girl and lay still. His friends had vanished.
It was the most intensely pleasurable moment of Rhuun's life.
Aelle and Ilaan joined him in the blowing smoke of the play field.
Ilaan said, "You've made an enemy for life. About time." Then he helped a sobbing Niico to his feet, saying, "Oh, I know, it looks bad now, but I'll have you back in the air in no time…."
Aelle merely looked at him. Finally she said, "I'll see you later," and left without another word.
