Alina Sayre has been here before. Has she been reincarnated? you ask. Well, maybe, but I was referring to the fact that she has been here for an interview before. And why not? She's an absolute delight. Today Alina has popped in to tell us about the latest book in her Voyages of the Legends series.
For those who don't know Alina, here's a little info for you:
Alina Sayre began her literary career chewing on board books and has been in love with words ever since. Now she is the award-winning author of The Voyages of the Legend fantasy series as well as an educator, editor, and speaker. Her debut novel, The Illuminator’s Gift, won a silver medal in the Moonbeam Children’s Book Awards and was a finalist in the Shelf Unbound Best Indie Book competition and a semifinalist for the BookLife Prize in Fiction. All four Voyages of the Legend books have received 4- or 5-star reviews from Readers’ Favorite. When she’s not writing, Alina enjoys hiking, crazy socks, and reading under blankets. She does not enjoy algebra or wasabi. When she grows up, she would like to live in a castle with a large library.
Here are a few of the best bits:
* Writing the last book in the series was a big challenge for Alina
* I'm intrigued by her diverse writing music.
* Alina's favourite quote is interesting. Kind of a self-fulfilling prophesy
* I may have a crush on her writing buddy. He is seriously cute.

Alina's new release is The Illuminated Kingdom
Release Date: November 3, 2017
The Vestigia Roi has risen up to retake their home island of Rhynlyr, but all Ellie can think about is rescuing her missing brother, Connor. Guided by a dream of Connor’s whereabouts, Ellie disobeys the Council’s orders and stows away aboard the Legend. But a simple rescue mission quickly goes wrong as Ellie and her friends confront new monsters and old enemies. The crewmembers of the Legend soon find themselves waging a last, desperate battle to save not just Connor or Rhynlyr, but their entire world. As the One Kingdom hangs in the balance, Ellie and the Vestigia Roi must ultimately decide what they are fighting for—and how much they are willing to sacrifice for it.
