War for the Sundered Crown & Cover Reveal

Righto, a quick update. I have now decided to call Book 2 in the Sundered Crown Saga  the War for the Sundered Crown. The previous title, Asphodel wasn’t too popular and I have to agree that War sounds a lot better and keeps the branding somewhat. As a treat here is the finished book cover for WFTSC!

Here’s the synopsis for the novel- (subject to change)

Five years has passed since the Battle of Eclin and the crowning of King Alderlade but the Kingdom of Delfinnia remains divided and dark forces are circling waiting for their chance to strike. Only one thing can save the realm, the legendary sword Asphodel.

Luxon Edioz is now a wizard, the first of his kind in over a century and his powers grow by the day. Unfortunately for him and his mage friends hatred against magic wielders is reaching breaking point. Lynchings, executions and persecution have become common place as the scared people turn on those magically gifted. The mages are blamed for all of the Kingdom’s ills and the machinations of the scheming Baron of Champia have made matters worse.

With enemies closing in from all sides Luxon and his allies are sent on a secret mission to the city of Stormglade located far to the southwest. What they find in the city will plunge the realm into war and send Luxon on a quest to find Asphodel, before all is lost.

Work on the novel is going well, I’d say I was about half way through at the moment. Plenty of excitement to come. Also, keep your eyes peeled for a new blog post about world building over the coming days.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Start to a series, 8 Mar 2014
By Mr Neil Collier – See all my reviews
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Blood of Kings (Unconquered) (Kindle Edition)
‘I have read a number of this type of books by authors such as Bernard Cornwell, Simon Scarrow, Conn Iggulden etc, and although Matthew Olney is not quite at their level he could certainly be up there soon. A very good read, and I’m looking forward to the next in the series. ‘
