My Merlin Series - Get to know the Characters (Giveaway/Blog tour)

Today I get to introduce you to the My Merlin Series with a Top 10 post.

Thanks to Priya Ardis for giving us an introduction to her characters!


What a fun post. I’ll tackle this from our three main character’s point of view to give you an idea of their tastes! But first, allow me to introduce you to the main characters of My Merlin.

Arriane, aka Ryan is our nice girl protagonist and King Arthur character. Matt, aka Merlin, is the greatest wizard who ever lived. Lastly, there is Vane, the hero’s brother and straddles the line of friend and foe.

Arriane, aka Ryan, is the seventeen year-old student president at a Boston-suburb high school. She has a quest—to pick the Prom theme and avoid any texting with the guy who dumped her. Little does she know that when the sword and stone crashes in the middle of London, she would find herself back in his arms.

Merlin, aka Matt, has an agenda. And he's completely screwed it up. To get close to Ryan’s brother, he chatted up the sister. Only to back off when he started to fall for her to the point he was having a hard time remembering his name or his mission—to save the world from disaster.

Vivane, aka Vane, has one mission—to get to the Candidate before his brother Vane. Always the second brother, the one in the shadow, he knows Merlin like no other. In his eyes, Merlin failed with King Arthur and lost Camelot. He’s going to make sure it doesn’t happen a second time.

My Boyfriend Merlin, Book 1, My Merlin Series

Book Description:
He was a little older than he was letting on. By a few eons…

In this modern day Arthurian, 17 year-old Boston high schooler Arriane, aka Ryan, DuLac just found out the guy she's been crushing on, hot biker Matt, is a little older than he was letting on. In fact, he is really Merlinthe Merlin, King Arthur's Merlin, the greatest wizard who ever lived. Frozen in a cave for over fifteen hundred years, he's woken for a purpose. But Ryan's not impressed. Tired of being a relationship loser, she'd rather kick his legendary behind.
Sure, the world has been crazy ever since the sword and the stone fell out of the sky like a meteor. But despite gruesome gargoyles, a deadly new world of magic, and the guy driving her crazy, Ryan knows that family is everything. Will Merlin sacrifice hers to save the world? Will she be able to stop him?

 My Merlin Awakening, Book 2, My Merlin Series

Book Description: 
If you haven't broken the rules, have you really lived?

Two wizard brothers. One sword. One chance to make a difference.
In this modern day Arthurian, Excalibur has been pulled from the stone, but what does it mean? 17 year-old Arriane (aka Ryan) DuLac has bigger problems—as student president, she's got to put on the Prom. While the Wizard Council debates their next move, she leaves the craziness behind and heads home. But she can't hide forever. Sooner than she'd like Merlin (aka Matt) has her chasing mermaids on the trail of the Fisher King. The wounded king defeated by Merlin's brother, Vane, in the past holds the key to save the future. 
At a time of shifting alliances, she must decide whose side she's on—the brother who struggles to do right or the brother who dares to break the rules? And Ryan must decide who she is—a regular girl or a champion? One wrong decision and her family falls apart. One wrong decision and the world falls apart. No pressure.

Ever My Merlin, Book 3, My Merlin Series

Expected release: Late October 2012

Book Description:  He was the right one, the chosen one, but was he meant for her?

The end of the world. The day of reckoning. The final battle.

In the last chapter of the My Merlin Series, it is a time of great strife for Arriane (aka Ryan) and Merlin (aka Matt) as they struggle to stem the flood of destruction unleashed upon the world. Their only hope rests in the one object that can restore their greatest ally: the Healing Cup.

With every scrap of life hanging in the balance, Ryan must convince both friends and enemies that the key to survival rests in the plans of a sword-toting girl of only eighteen. She must reconcile a fifteen-hundred-year rivalry between two brothers, and be ruthless enough to break a heart—and a life—in the process. And at some point, she really needs to get herself to Prom.
