The Defender by Rachel Rossano - Book Tour + Giveaway





New roles. New rules. No margin for
error.


Zezilia Ilar joins the sept son’s
entourage as a defender. Her growing Talent ability makes her a target for the
Elitists, and her gender makes people question her competence. She must protect
the sept son. Any mistake could be fatal.


Hadrian Aleron always knew his beliefs
would cause trouble, but he didn’t realize how much. Rebels are rising. He
could lose his title, his position, and if he’s not careful, his life. As the
assassination attempts grow bolder, Hadrian must rely upon his young defender
and their shared faith in the Almighty to keep him from faltering.

Rachel Rossano lives with her husband and three children in the northeastern part of the United States. Homeschooled through high school, she began writing her early teens. She didn’t become serious about pursuing a career as an author until after she had graduated from college and happily married. Then the children came.



Now she spends her days being a wife, mother, teacher, and household manager. Her evenings and free moments are devoted to her other loves, writing and book cover design. Drawing on a lifelong fascination with reading and history, she spends hours creating historical feeling fantasy worlds and populating them with characters who live and breathe on the page.

Top Ten List
10 Things Rachel Rossano would do if she had more time:
1)    Write more. I never seem to have enough time to write.
2)    Do more crafts. I used to do all kinds of things like painting, crocheting, sewing, and other crafts. I gave that all up for writing and kids.
3)    Read more. In the daily juggle of homeschooling, housekeeping, and keeping two careers alive, I rarely have enough time to read as I wish.
4)    Make premade book covers. I keep intending to do this, but I never actually manage to do it.
5)    Plot more than one book ahead. I am working on this.
6)    Take up painting digitally and physically.
7)    Learn to dance. It is something I have always wanted to learn.
8)    Take up horseback riding. Despite all the horses in my books, I have very little hands-on experience.
9)    Study history in depth. Right now all I can manage is grabbing overviews unless I am researching something specific for a book.
10)                       Exercise more. Yeah, this should be higher on the list.

Character Casting
I see Gal Gadot playing my heroine. Zezilia Ilar is tall and athletic in build. She carries herself well, with an elegance to her stride and demeanor thanks to the watchful guidance of her strong-willed mother. However, she has a playful, active side which stems from growing up with six older brothers. Not inclined toward the more feminine duties of housework and cooking, she tends to enjoy the outdoors, nature, and activity. Even though this is her desire, she still takes to studying easily and proves herself to be quite and eager learner as she learns to master her new found talents in sending (telepathy) and mass moving (telekinesis) abilities.

My hero could easily be played by Luke Evans. Hadrian Aleron is an intense young man of purpose. He tends toward kindness when not distracted by weighty concerns. As a youngest son groomed from young age for public office, he doesn’t have all the usual self-preservation skills of his elder brothers, but he makes up for that by being very proficient at his job, which is overseeing and supporting all the talent users in the peninsular nation of Pratinus.
