Summer of Indie Talks With Rachel Hunter

Our next guest on Summer of Indie is author Rachel Hunter. Rachel Hunter is the author of fantasy novel A Llathalan Annal: Empyreal Fate (Part One).

 A Llathalan Annal: Empyreal Fate (Part One)
Filled to the brim with forbidden love, an ancient evil, and a nation in disrepair, Empyreal Fate is a tale of riveting bravery and mortal corruption.

The land of Llathala lingers on the brink of war between men and elves, a dark history surrounding each race. Stirred by tensions of the land, a shadow of the past reemerges, taking precedence in reality and consuming the very soul of mans’ mortal weakness. Darrion, the son of a poor laborer, is ensnared in a hostile world, forced to choose between loyalty to his king or the counsel of the elves. Yet Fate has other plans in store, tying his course to Amarya, an elven royalblood of mysterious quality and unsurpassable beauty. But this forbidden connection incites betrayal from members of their own kin, marking them as traitors to the crown. In a land torn asunder, only Fate’s decree can allow such love to coexist with an ancient enmity.

Born in 1993, Rachel Hunter has always been fascinated with words and the intricate way in which they combine. Since a child, she has been an avid writer, winding vibrant tales and elaborate stanzas on folded bits of paper.
As the years passed, her love of words never died; her adoration for reading fared no equal. Always with her nose in a book, Rachel took fondly to works spanning all genres. Yet it was the compelling grasp of speculative fiction that wrenched her fascination above all.

Senior year of high school proved another momentous year. A winner of the Oklahoma Young Writers Competition, Rachel was awarded with publication of her "Sestina of Elven Regret" in the 2010-2011 anthology, Growing Voices
But her writing does not end there. Currently pursuing a degree in the medical field at the University of Oklahoma, she aspires to illuminate the creative spark of eager readers. Fulfilling the desire to incite intrigue, she seeks to explore new worlds and create vast empires of her own. "Empyreal Fate" is only the first of her series. Indeed, it is only the beginning. Steampunk will be her next domain.
