TERRAN DEFENDERS – PRE-ORDER NOW!

Here it is folks my latest book! I really enjoyed writing this one, creating the world and characters was a lot of fun. You can read the synopsis below. I really hope that you will get a copy and enjoy it as much as I did writing it.

Terran Defenders

The year is 2396, mankind has spread among the stars and mingled with the galaxy’s many alien races.

Humanity’s golden age ended in the fires of civil war a decade earlier. An uneasy peace remains between the government of the Earth-based United World Alliance and the Colonial Federation, a group of colonies seeking the freedom to forge their own path. With humankind scarred by the brutal conflict things that should never have been forgotten were lost.
In the fighting, the order of the Terran Defenders was wiped out and with them the knowledge that a deadly old enemy still lingers in the depths of space. With the Terran Defenders no longer in existence, it will fall upon a motley band of misfits and outcasts to take up the legendary order’s mantle and save the Galaxy or die trying.

Mase, a bounty hunter more interested in money and loose women finds himself taking on the job from hell when he and his robot partner JERRY are sent after a mysterious bounty. Their target, a beautiful yet deadly woman named Kara Brighte, the granddaughter of the last Terran Defender.

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.

Book & Cover Reveal – Asphodel – Sundered Crown Saga Book Two

A happy New Year to everyone!

2015 is going to be a busy one for myself as I have plans to release not one but three novels!

The one that I am revealing today is the second book in the Sundered Crown Saga. Its a story that I hope will be bigger, better and just as successful as the first has been ;). I initially planned to call it War for the Sundered Crown, but as I planned out the story-line I chose to change it.

If you have read Heir to the Sundered Crown you will likely recognise the name Asphodel, as it is a sword wielded by champions and heroes throughout the ages. Seeing as how book two will focus on the quest to find it I decided to name the whole book Asphodel.

Here’s the blurb, (likely to change)

‘Asphodel, Sword of righteousness I cast thee from the grasp of mortals for no man should wield thy power’- The Champion Alectae following the murder of King Marcus the Mighty, conqueror of the Golden Empire.

‘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.’
