Morning Everyone today is also my stop on a truely magical blog tour for ‘The Beginning’ The Mythical Universe Book 1 by Alice Scott! This is one of those book that I really WISH would be turned in to a film because it’s just THAT amazing! I would love it to be in a film I’d be queuing to watch it! Honestly one for the ever magical, mythical, fantasy books I’ve read! Enjoy!
Fresh out of an abusive relationship, Aria moves in with her twin brother, Alex, ready for a new start. He offers her a job working with him as a paranormal investigator, which she reluctantly agrees to. Aria is a skeptic of anything she cannot see with her eyes. Alex, on the other hand, has always been a believer in anything and everything paranormal. When Aria and Alex go to California to help investigate a large building where strange things are happening, she has no idea how her world is going to be turned upside down. When they arrive, she meets Tyler, one of the biggest mysteries she never saw coming. He’s a tall and sexy man, but her attraction to him is more than that. She can’t explain why she can feel the energy pulsing from him. During the investigation, things start to unfold and very quickly, Aria comes to realize she isn’t who she thought she was. She may not even be human. Together with Tyler and Alex, she goes on a pursuit to find out the truth. Traveling through planets and dimensions, meeting creatures she only thought existed in fantasy stories, she will have to question everything she ever believed. When she finds out the truth what will that mean for her and Alex? And what about Tyler? How does he fit in with all of this? The Mythical Universe: The Beginning is an action-packed story full of time traveling, hybrids, aliens, vampires, fairies and so much more.
18+ for mild sexual situations and language.
Ends in a major cliffhanger leading into book 2
This magical story was seriously so exciting! It had me gripped from page one, and it was an easy read and I just really enjoyed every single page! So here’s most of the story line without giving away what happens!
So the main character Aria moves in with her brother Alex after a bad breakup, he also offers to get her a job at his paranormal investigation company which she accepts!
The 2 of them have completely different views! Alex believes there is more in the world than just humans and Aria is completely skeptical, however she takes the jobs as it’s her own income, so they become a team!
3 months later when they are on one of their paranormal investigations. When they are outside they see 4 white lights and when Aria starts asking questions Alex soon shuts her down!
Alex eventually opens up and tells Aria that what they saw were UFOs and that Aliens are real! He thought the UFO would stop following him if he had a partner but that turns out to not be the case.
They soon get called up to a large scale paranormal investigation to a property where they want to turn the place in to a hotel! This means joining other team members ! When Aria meets Tyler (another paranormal investigator) she feels this weird vibration off of him! When she explains this to her brother he explains it’s like an energy but when her and Tyler’s hand touches he glows! This leads to Alex telling Aria that Tyler is a Hybrid, half alien, half human!
Soon Alex and Aria are introduced to Tyler’s dad and they both learn of a whole new world out there, full of all types of mythical creatures, their lives soon change and they start to try and track down their parents which isn’t easy!
They all travel abroad to try and find Alex and Arias parents when strange and worrying things start happening!
Things get nasty when their parents turn up at short notice and this is when the action really begins!
Aria becomes weak, and while in the search for someone close to her lots of family home truths in both hers and Tyler’s family come to the surface!
There is a Royal family which is made up of 1 of every species of creature, the royal family is dangerous! Eugenia is the Queen of the Hybrids and part of the royal family and we learn a lot about the history of how the royal family began and how it works!
Eugenia and Ekon (the king of the shifters) want a lot from Aria, but is everything as it seems?
What will happen to them all, what is expected and needed of them? What dangers will they face? You’ll just have to read it!
This story is BRILLIANT! It’s the first in the series and the way it’s been left I cannot wait for number 2! I found it completely captivating with not one slower point in the whole book!
I love the whole concept of this story! The characters are brilliant! I love how Aria goes from being the biggest skeptic to accepting everything she is told and learns over the 6 month period! She’s strong and loyal and will always protect her friends and family!
Alex I felt for through the whole book as people seemed to forget about him like he wasn’t important! He had it so tough and yet carried on doing anything he could to protect his sister and I LOVED who he fell for!
Eugenia, is naive but a strong Queen, who you just have to read to find out more about her!
Ekon is pure evil and HATES the hybrids! However is he all evil or does he have a side that no one realises?
My favorite character by far is Tyler! He is Arias great protector! He is the ultimate gentleman I just love him! I feel for him when he can’t get hold of his family and when he learns about his blood line, however his dedication and love for Aria is like none other!
This book to me, is like the ultimate magical, mythical, fantasy book! Not only were Aliens and shape shifters involved there are fairies, ogres, vampires, wear wolves and if you can think of it it’s in there!
Honestly I think this book is something to get really excited about, it’s enchanting and spectacular! Full of adventure, love, passion, heart break, growth, self discovery, tradegy it’s an easy
5 ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ from me, I can’t believe how fast I read it! I just couldn’t put it down! I was excited about this book from the blurb but it still really suprised me just how AMAZING it really is!
About the Author
Alicen was born in the deep south. Growing up as a disabled, opinionated, female in that environment was difficult for her. She developed C-PTSD before she was a year old, but she wouldn’t be diagnosed until she was in her thirties.
Her love of writing didn’t develop until she was in her twenties, but once it did it took off at full speed. Since then she’s run several blogs, done book reviews for indie authors and started working on both her autobiography and her first New Adult fantasy book collection, The Mythical Universe.
She’s choosing to self publish her novels and her autobiography because she wants to keep control over her work and her image. Alicen wants her stories told in her voice. So much of her life was chosen for her by others, she won’t let it happen again.
When she’s not writing, Alicen enjoys advocating for the LGBT+ community and the disabled, hanging out with her friends and partner and spending time with her two cats, Dittle and Odie.
Her story may be one of triumph, but she refuses to become just another disabled person labeled as inspirational for pursuing her dreams. Staying true to herself is what’s most important to her throughout this process. While self publishing may be more difficult, Alicen has never done things the easy way.
