The Marked Blog Tour!


The Marked was released back in January, and this month, I wanted to take her on tour!

The Marked is the first book in the Knight’s Academy series, and it has some really good reviews thus far!

About the Book

Myka Williams has never fit in with her peers, and although her adoptive parents are loving and supportive, she feels most at home alone in the woods.

When she’s offered a full scholarship to Knight’s Academy in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee, she takes the opportunity for a fresh start. She soon learns that Knight’s Academy is more than just a school. Within the stone walls of the institution, humans and vampires are mixing, and their offspring are going unnoticed.

As Myka falls prey to the evil plan of the school, she makes a chilling discovery about her own heritage and realizes that she’s at the Academy for more than just an education. Myka must yield to her birthright at the risk of losing everyone she loves or succumb to the fate that Knight’s Academy has in store for her—a fate worse than death.

He learns a lot about howling during his journey, but more importantly, he learns a valuable lesson about believing in himself.

Emerald’s Review:

3 1/2 – 4 STARS

The Boy Who Couldn’t Cry Wolf is an interesting take on the boy who cried wolf, being the opposite that is. It’s a cute story about a werewolf who can’t howl, and the young wolf searches for advice on how to howl before the full moon when he’s chosen to lead a ceremony. Eventually, he learns an extremely valuable lesson about discovering how to do things his own way and learning to be himself. Worrying only held him back.

The illustrations aren’t scary, but I wasn’t overly impressed with them. My six year old niece liked the book, and seeing how it’s in her age group, I think the author really hit the nail on the head.

Overall, I enjoyed the moral of the story, and after reading it a second time, I came to realize that it is a good story and appropriate for kids four to probably eight.

caldricCaldric Blackwell realized he loved reading when he read about a bunch of people (with single-syllable names) and their pets (also with single-syllable names) in kindergarten.

Exposure to a host of great authors while studying at the University of California, Santa Barbara inspired him to begin writing fiction. Although he began writing short stories for adults, he eventually migrated to writing children’s books. His debut work is an early chapter book titled The Enchanted River Race. His next release is a picture book, The Boy Who Couldn’t Cry Wolf.

Outside of writing, Caldric enjoys hiking, gardening, and playing a variety of string instruments. Caldric currently resides in California.
