Last Title Idea and Blurb

Again, I want to thank each of you for your advice and help these past few weeks with title and blurb ideas. I really appreciate it, and with your help I believe I've finally decided on a title. I've also polished up the blurb and altered a few things.

Revised Blurb and Title! What Do You Think?

books, poem, novel, stories, flash fiction, high fantasy, science fiction, author blog, book series, story series, haiku, eerawls, author elise e rawls,

Last week was my first time sharing the blurb I'd drafted up, and I also shared my title idea. I've since been revising both of these, and I'm thinking I had an easier time actually writing the book than I am with the blurb and title making process, haha! 🙂

Book Blurb Is Here! What Do You Think?

books, poem, novel, stories, flash fiction, high fantasy, science fiction, author blog, book series, story series, haiku, eerawls, author elise e rawls,

I am both excited and nervous to share this. It's one of those "author moments," I guess. 🙂 Here is V. Chronicles, Book #1 blurb/summary! Please tell me and VOTE what you honestly think, and if something should be reworded. I've been staring at it for far too long, and need your lovely input.

What’s their favourite ice cream flavour? Aken likes many different flavors; but the best to him is probably chocolate flavored, because chocolate is an expensive delicacy in their kingdom.
