PRG Readers Choice Awards - BLOOD DIVIDED wins second place!

 

Hi all,


I was shocked to be nominated this year. As you can imagine, the SOUL WAR books are Epic Fantasy, not Paranormal Romance. But the PRG has always been kind to me. They read and reviewed BLOOD DIVIDED and felt it had enough elements in it to be considered. 

When I got the nomination, I went to work promoting the awards on FB and Instagram. Actually reached out to some of my readers in toy groups too.

Here are the results. I tied for 2nd place. Not bad. Like I said, this is a fantasy book competing with PNR in and PNR awards. So yeah, I am proud of the results. 

I would have had a solid 2nd place, no tie, but my neighbor forgot to vote. Next time my doggie poops on his lawn, maybe I will forget to pick it up. Know what I mean? lol. Just kidding...

In other news, I just sent book three of four of the SOUL WAR series to the publisher. So maybe we will see it in print in a year. End of 2021? Maybe. Probably early 2022.

Thanks all!

BLOOD DIVIDED Wins an Award!

 


  Hi all,


So, a month ago, Literary Titan reviewed my newest book. Here is the link: Blood Divided | LITERARY TITAN

They have reviewed all my works. And normally like them a lot . But this review really seemed to get what I was going for in the book. I was very impressed with it. And it was only 4 stars!

 "Breaux does not clutter his books with needless characters. While this particular book centers around the four children of Opal, Tala and Karn, the secondary characters all have purpose. Breaux excels at character development. No one feels out of place, not one character feels like a simple plot device. It is also refreshing to have a male author who writes such strong female leads. There are no damsels in distress in these pages."

Pretty good, right?

Each month they pick their favorite works and my book was chosen. Here is the link:  Literary Titan Book Awards December 2020 | LITERARY TITAN

I am very happy that they enjoyed it. And very happy to have won this award. 

I hope that more people read this series and start posting reviews. It seems harder than ever to get readers to pick up your books, and nearly impossible at times for them to post their thoughts. I enjoy reading what people think of my stories and characters. I really-really do. Good or bad.


Thanks all!

5 Star Book Review for BLOOD DIVIDED by Kevin James Breaux

 BOOK REVIEW

Reviewed by Tammy Ruggles for Readers' Favorite - 5 Stars!


Blood Divided: Book 2 in the Soul War Series by Kevin James Breaux is a highly entertaining fantasy epic. It's a follow-up to the first book in the series, Soul Born, with some familiar characters, and the introduction of new ones too. In this new offering, it picks up two decades after the first story ends, which makes fans eagerly wonder what has taken place during that time, and what the characters are like now, and what lies in store for them. The epic opens with Tala, and then the rest of the dynamic mix of characters enter as the unpredictable plot unfolds. There is a lot going on in this novel, and it's nice to know the background of the story, but unnecessary as this one definitely stands by itself.

What I like about the saga is the author's skill at creating memorable characters and interesting descriptions. These are worlds and scenarios you could only imagine, but Breaux brings them to life in such visceral detail. The characters are inventive as well, like the werewolf Zian. You will be intrigued by Megan, Nathan, Autumn, and Lucien, the offspring of the trio Opal, Karn, and Tala. This story is mainly about them, and the force of nature they become when they combine their strengths and talents. I'm always fascinated with next-generation stories and continuing legacies, and this one doesn't disappoint. Told from varying viewpoints, you get a comprehensive understanding of the plot and motivations. And, to me, Khaos is a standout character, even if he is an enemy and definitely on the dark side. If you want to become lost in a solid fantasy novel with magic, elves, fairies, good versus evil, exciting battles, and memorable characters, take some time to read Blood Divided by Kevin James Breaux.
