GENRE:   History-Inspired Fantasy

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

Book one of a brand-new, epic fantasy series by master historical story-teller, James W. George.

Something inconceivable has happened, and all the world’s colors are about to bleed…

Kellia. Kellia the Red. Pagan, seafaring warriors of ancient renown. They have sailed west, ever west, and have discovered an awe-inspiring, unknown land. Is it their salvation, or the seed of their destruction?

Merova and the Throne of Blue. Wealthy, cultured, and the ultimate matriarchy. Kellia’s ancient nemesis, and a realm of secrets, intrigue, and treachery.

The Holy Domain of Sanctia. Piety, sacrifice, and faith. They have a spiritual duty to spread the truth across the seas, and they will sail under the sacred banner of green.

The Confederation of Orange. Cynical, profiteering financiers and lovers of pleasure. If there is a new discovery in this world, they will be poised to exploit it.

Fans of historical fiction and fantasy will delight in this epic saga of empire, conflict, and power.

EXCERPT:

Of course, he had seen death before.  Although fairly young, he shuddered to think how many corpses he had seen.  Hapless souls who expired aboard ships and were callously tossed overboard.  Unfortunate losers who handled their ale poorly, drunkenly challenged the wrong opponent, and were rewarded with an axe permanently embedded in their forehead.  And the old.  Always, there was the revulsive, odious, inevitable triumph of death among the elderly.  How often Olmar, the tailor’s son, had been called upon to drag corpses from their hovel and prepare their funeral pyre.

 

But suddenly stumbling over a heap of unexpected death in a strange and distant land proved to be too much, and Olmar shrieked like a woman.  In fact, it wasn’t merely one corpse; it was two.  And Olmar didn’t merely trip over the departed Kellian.  He actually tripped over his plump, lifeless body and fell to the ground, until his face was mere inches from a second victim, a hideous, blood-caked cadaver with a squinty green eye mercilessly sliced away.  The son-of-a-tailor childishly clenched his eyes shut and fought the urge to vomit.

 

He quickly realized he had little, if any, desire to be face-to-face with a blood-caked, squinty, one-eyed corpse.  They were so close that Olmar might be retching from his hideous breath, if only there was breath remaining.  Regaining his faculties, he leapt to his feet and tried to comprehend what had happened.

 

It was obvious, even in the torrential downpour, that a brutal struggle had taken place, and two victims lay dead.  Had they slaughtered each other, or were they victims of another party?  Olmar shuddered at the notion this virgin land might be rife with enemies after all.  An indigenous people?   Or mercenaries in the service of the Blue?  He inadvertently clutched his weapon as he scanned the drenched, muddy landscape.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

 

James W. George is a lover of history and historical fiction. He is a graduate of Boston University, a military veteran, and he is currently residing in Virginia with his wife and children.

 

He published his critically-acclaimed debut novel, “My Father’s Kingdom”, in January 2017. The novel depicted the prelude to King Philip’s War in 1671 New England. The Indie View said: “Five stars…This is high historical drama handled wonderfully…a tale that will fully engage you on every level.”

“My Father’s Kingdom” is a planned trilogy, and book two, “The Prophet and the Witch”, was published in September 2017. This is an epic novel that spans the entire conflict of King Philip’s War, and includes such notable historical figures as Josiah Winslow, Increase Mather, Metacomet, Benjamin Church, and Mary Rowlandson. The Literary Titan awarded it five stars and a gold medal for October 2017. “Expertly written and instantly engaging from the first few pages…I was captivated…one of the more intellectual of reads.”

In 2020, he turned his attention to history-inspired fantasy and composed book one of an epic new series, “All the World’s Colors.”

He is looking forward to future books in these two series, and will enthusiastically reply to any questions, comments, insights, or witticisms posted to his Goodreads page.
