SST Blog Tour: The Island by S. Usher Evans & Giveaway


To be publish on April 26,2016 by Sun’s Golden Ray Publishing

Series: The Madion War #1

Genre: Fantasy, YA

Rating: ★★★★★



Prince Galian is third in line to the throne, but prefers his place as a resident at the Royal Kylaen Hospital. When his father urges him to join the military to help reclaim their colony, Galian is forced to put aside his oath to Do No Harm and fight a war he does not believe in.

Across the great Madion Sea, Captain Theo Kallistrate dreams of a day when she is no longer bound by conscription to fight for her country’s independence. But when the Kylaens threaten, honor and duty call her to the front lines to fight off the oppressors.

When an air skirmish goes wrong, both Theo and Galian crash on a remote island hundreds of miles from either nation. Grievously injured, Theo must rely on Galian’s medical expertise, and Galian must rely on Theo’s survival skills, to live another day in a harsh and unforgiving terrain.

Can they put aside their differences long enough to survive? Or will the war that brought them to the island tear them apart?

The Island is the first in a new romance trilogy by S. Usher Evans, author of the Razia series and Empath.


What if the person that you hated the most is the person who you with in the Island and stuck there for a long time?

Kylae and Rave had been at war for about 50 years. Kylean royals wants the Raven to surrender and to be part of their place but the Raven’s didn’t want to. Prince Galian is the third son of King Grieg, he is a kylaen and a doctor. When his brother died during the war, King Grieg urged him to join the force. Galian is a handsome, playboy, and sweet guy. Theo is a brave one and she is a raven. She suffered a lot so she didn’t want getting attached to other people. My favorite character here is Korina, Galian’s mom.

S. Usher Evans’ writing the story is amazing. I really enjoyed reading this because the story is fast paced and the characters were perfectly written. I like the way she wrote the ending because most of the stories that I’ve read in series, the ending is cliffhanger and it didn’t give justice about the characters. The ending of this book is not cliffhanger and gave justice to the characters on how the story will end up in the second book.

I felt like that this story is like a modern royal world because of the words that they are using. Some of the fantasy books that I’ve read doesn’t say words that we are using today. This book is a lighter fantasy book.
