Legends of Deceit Practiced Blurb. What Do You Think?

Okay, peeps. Let’s face it. Writing a blurb is a pain-in-the-ass. All my author friends agree. It’s tough to condense a whole story into a few paragraphs and write it in such a way that it’s captivating.

Like many authors I know, I struggle with writing blurbs which brings me here. Months ago, I wrote one for my book, Legends of Deceit, which will be released this year. I’m going to share it with you and would like to know what you think about it. It’s an unedited rough draft, so no judgments. LOL 

Legends of Deceit

22-year-old sassy and headstrong Haven Evergreen has always dreamed of a fantastical land where a unicorn freely roams, fairies like to have a good time, and a baby dragon melts her heart, but little does she know her dreams are actually suppressed memories filtering through a compulsion spell cast on her for protection.

When Haven comes home one night, tragedy hits, altering her life. The truth of who she really is begins to unravel after a handsome warrior with piercing green eyes saves her life.

Larkin Vestergaard is part of an elite group of soldiers on a special assignment to save the daughter of his king. When he sees her, he’s shaken to his core. Could she be the girl who he fell in love with long ago, only to be taken away from him at such a young age?

When Larkin escorts Haven to the magical world of her dreams, Haven discovers who she really is, her place in this beautiful but yet frightening realm, and an ancient power that dwells in her that can destroy her or make her a force to be reckoned with.

Will Haven accept her place in this new world, give into her fierce attraction for Larkin, or will she disregard what’s expected of her and instead go back to her old, familiar life where things made more sense?

I'm thinking it might be too long. What do you think? 


  1. It is a great blurb. As for it being too long, I might reduce it to three paragraphs. People are very inpatient ;)
