NEW STORY FROM THE WORLD OF THE IRON HEAD TRILOGY NOW AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER FOR ONLY 99c:

Amazon / iBooks / Nook / Kobo

* * *

This is not a tale of redemption.

It is not a path to inspire dreams.

It is the rise of Lakrius.

The man of many names. The deceiver of time.

The king of fortune lost.

***

When Avvyr is taken into a mythical forest on the coast of Lianthe, he realizes there is a deeper, grimmer truth to every story. Even his own.

In his nineteen years of life, Avvyr has only ever followed the rigid code of survival, not making a stand even in the most difficult of circumstances. Yet now, working as a blacksmith for noblemen who flirt with madness and chase tainted prosperity he cannot ignore the impulse to act.

But while his intentions are pure, the journey he brings upon himself thins the divide between light and darkness, entrapping him in the very cage he had wanted the world to escape.

***

Forged in Flames is the older, sinister brother to The Iron Head Trilogy.

The novel can be read as a standalone, or after the trilogy for maximum enjoyment.

February Book Recommendations

Since February is slowly coming to an end,  I decided to compile a short list of books I recommend. Some are titles I read this month, some are titles I had read a long time ago, but are still vivid in my mind.

So if you’re looking for some inspiration on what to read next, scroll down.

Sarah J. Maas: A Court of Thorns and Roses

51BzDUzztTL._SX324_BO1,204,203,200_

I read this title a while ago, but since the release date of the second book is fastly approaching, I figured I’d put it on the list so potential readers can get a head start.

I have read Maas’ Throne of Glass series and loved it, so I was naturally interested in a completely new storyline from the author. Well, I certainly wasn’t disappointed.

ACOTAR is a YA fantasy novel, although it reads more like a NA one, which is a big plus for me. The book drew me in from page one, held my attention right to the very end and left me checking the internet for the release date of A Court of Mist and Fury. The Fae world Maas creates is mesmerising, the perfect mix of visual appeal and intrigue. and the characters are well-written.

An excellent aspect of this book is that it can be appealing to those who like high fantasy as well as to readers who aren’t all that fond of the genre. I have friends in both categories and so far, neither complained even a bit.

C. S. Pacat: The Captive Prince

51z7deeFcvL._SX331_BO1,204,203,200_

I read this gem earlier this month and promptly ordered the second book in the series. Although historical fiction isn’t exactly my cup of tea, I found myself unable to part with it after a few chapters.

The story itself is captivating and the M/M romantic aspect is a breeze to read after all the F/M fiction I have encountered in the past few months. But what I was particularly fond of is the fact that the book doesn’t stop just there.

Although set in the background (at least so far) are visible F/F pairings as well as a strong underlying bisexual aspect. For that last one alone I wanted to smack a kiss on the cover.

Ilona Andrews: On the Edge

518CgcrDENL._SX308_BO1,204,203,200_

Don’t be fooled by the cover. On the Edge is a charming urban/rustic fantasy novel, filled with mystery, action and romance. The world building is one of the best ones I have seen so far given the relatively short page count. If you decide to read it, you’ll know what I mean.

Set as the first title of a four book series about The Edge, a place between The Broken (that would be our magic-free world) and The Weird (a mirror image of our world, but ruled by magic), On the Edge is a wonderful introduction as well as a captivating stand-alone book.

But a word of advice: if you do decide to read the series, do it in order. Because even though each title follows its own storyline and has its own main characters, they are still linked to the previous books. Nothing truly major, but you may find yourself in the dark pertaining certain details.

 

A thank you for my pawed support team

Since THE DARK ONES will be released next month, I believe a little note of thank you is in order.

LeeRoy helped me work on the novel from Day 1! Always lounging by my side (or in my lap) as I sat behind the computer; not to mention the numerous kisses in-between. Thank you for all the love and support, honey!

Merkaba wasn’t here when the whole journey with The Dark Ones kicked-off, but he joined in when the editing process began and has been by my side ever since. The little one gave fantastic support by constantly sleeping in my lap. Oh, and by trying to chew on my fingers if they weren’t giving him enough attention.

Seriously, writing with these two dudes by my side is always such a treat! And not to mention: we are already happily working on the next novel in the Black Werewolves series.

Love,

G.
