Finding Lichgates Tour copy

Heyo! S. M. Boyce here. I’m on this cozy blog today as part of my Finding Lichgates Blog Tour. My hosts are so awesome for letting me show you the stories of how some of my fans found Lichgates and the other books in the Grimoire Saga.

So, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the series, I think I should explain what a lichgate is. A lichgate is a portal that ties our world to the terrifying and beautiful world in my Grimoire Saga called Ourea. Lichgates can be found in remote places, and when you walk through a lichgate, the land you cross into is not what you would see if you’d simply walked around the portal.

For many fans, stumbling upon the first book in the Grimoire Saga is much like stumbling through a lichgate. That is why this tour is all about the fans and how they found their first lichgate into the world of the Grimoire Saga.

Meet Jen, the owner of this blog. This is her Finding Lichgates Story:

Jen M. copyI love the way I found LICHGATES. A few years ago, S.M. Boyce contacted me based on my tendency to review books on my old blog. We connected over LICHGATES, which I was thrilled to fall into, and then, our paths crossed again a year later. I had just dipped my toes in the world of Indie publishing, and I reconnected with Boyce, finding her an amazing mentor and source of knowledge. Finally, in 2013, we met face to face for the first time, and I knew that the book review request had been the beginning of so much more; we’ve become fast friends, and I’m so glad it was LICHGATES that brought us together. I’m thrilled to be able to participate in the tour today, and here’s to many more random connections and creativity!

I am so happy that I fell through a Lichgate and discovered an amazing fantasy world, and an author who’s just as amazing as her creation.


1 -Lichgate

Kara Magari is about to discover a beautiful world full of terrifying things—Ourea.

Kara, a college student still reeling from her mother’s recent death, has no idea the hidden world of Ourea even exists until a freak storm traps her in a sunken library. With no way out, she opens an ancient book of magic called the Grimoire and unwittingly becomes its master, which means Kara now wields the cursed book’s untamed power. Discovered by Ourea’s royalty, she becomes an unwilling pawn in a generations-old conflict—a war intensified by her arrival. In this world of chilling creatures and betrayal, Kara shouldn’t trust anyone… but she’s being hunted and can’t survive on her own. She drops her guard when Braeden, a native soldier with a dark secret, vows to keep her safe. And though she doesn’t know it, her growing attraction to him may just be her undoing.

For twelve years, Braeden Drakonin has lived a lie. The Grimoire is his one chance at redemption, and it lands in his lap when Kara Magari comes into his life. Though he begins to care for this human girl, there is something he wants more. He wants the Grimoire.


Welcome to Ourea, where only the cunning survive.
