Ghosts of Alda
Book Two of The Obscured Throne Trilogy (2023)
Secrets have been unveiled and their revelations don't bode well for the scattered peoples of Alda's post apocalyptic fantasy world. The Black Gnarl grows in strength. A scant few individuals, protected by the remaining life energies of the world known as the Fifth magic, seek answers to give the world hope. Among their pivotal journeys lie the stories of others caught in the grasp of the Obscured Throne's eldritch Inheritors, whose true purpose is not yet fully known.
Ashes of Aldyr
Book One of The Obscured Throne Trilogy (2021)
The world of Alda is broken, destroyed by an event the survivors call "The Rupture." The aldyrs, magical trees connected to the soul of the world which once grew in breathtaking groves, are dead. Elf-kind, who shared a close bond with these trees, are dying out as a result. The dwarves have retreated into their mountain homes. Humans gather in crumbling settlements. Sinister, god-like beings, each uniquely horrific, exert their influences over the world. Each story is a different thread forming a larger tapestry that shows the scope of the horror and insanity brought by the elusive and mind-numbing entity known as the Obscure Throne. The world was once saved from this threat and Alda was hidden and sealed away by 55 seals. Now, an ancient and shadowy cult called the Black Gnarl have broken enough seals to expose Alda to the Obscure Throne...and It's coming.
"Dark dystopian fantasy"
WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT "THE OBSCURED THRONE TRILOGY"
"This is easily one of the strongest starts to a series I have read for a long time and I cannot wait to get my hands on book two."
Having read the first book in this series, the author did not disappoint in delivering a horrific continuation of the story of Aldyr and the dark magic that consumes its world. Similar to the first book, it's sectioned into almost a collection of short stories that build an overall world and characters and creatures unimaginable. The author's detail of scenery, however, provides a clear picture of the horrors encountered.
"The author knew exactly what they were doing when they wrote this! Yes, I was highly impressed the story keeps you interested and brings more things to light when you think you have figured something out, its gripping and full of amazement even at the dark moments!"
The Seven Spires
An incredible high fantasy adventure set in a world based on familiar fairy tales, folklore, and mythology, "The Seven Spires" is an epic story of dragons, magic, conquering evil, and discovering magnificent new places.
When a fearsome creature known as Wyvern begins terrorizing Emrallt, one of the seven realms of the continent of Septer, a group of heroes are brought together seemingly by fate to rally against him. A prince, warrior, wizard, and mysterious, sorceress-like sybil try to discover why a common maiden could be the best chance their kingdoms have against Wyvern’s growing forces that threaten to dominate each and every one of the ancient, arcane spires that bind their kingdoms, and world, together.
"A Fairy Tale but better"
WHAT PEOPLE THINK ABOUT "THE SEVEN SPIRES"
The pacing is smooth as it leads to the ultimate climax, with a satisfying epilogue to let us know how the characters get on once the book ends. If you are a fan of high fantasy, then I have no hesitation in recommending this novel to you.
Once I started reading this story I was not putting it down. It reminded me in a way of the Lord of the Rings with all its adventure,villains, wizards, friends, and romance. This is the first book by this Author that I have read but I will be looking for more by him.
The seven spires tells the story of a prince's saga and his adventures in the quest to save the maiden. The book has all the ingredients that should have a classic fairy tale, and the story is easy and pleasant to read, so I really recommend reading it.
