When the high elven princess Zera is taken by an ancient darkness, the kingdom must call for desperate allies to launch her rescue. Three mercenaries: the barbarian Baruda, the warrior monk Erid, and the fellborn goblin Gnash find help in an unlikely companion to help them reach the princess. As they embark into the unknown, their adventure will take them to the darkest places in Vel Ardon, and even throughout time, as they seek the safe return of the lost princess.
It’s good to finally be able to share this with the world. ‘The Final Power: CHRONOMANCER’ is my first published epic-scale fantasy novel written for fans of high-adventure. Compared to my previous novels, the amount of world-building that went into this book was on a completely different level (which I’ll talk about in greater detail in a future post).
As you may have guessed from the title, this particular story involves the manipulation of time. The way I incorporated this into the story was quite different from most time-travel tales, and I hope that helps to set it apart. It also provided context for the invention of some unusual and fantastical environments which, to my surprise and delight, became one of the highlights of my experience writing and editing this story.
Another surprise was how attached I personally became to the characters. I’ve had readers tell me that my characters are likable and life-like, and that they miss them when the story ends. It’s one of the most encouraging pieces of feedback that I’ve gotten in my time writing, but this novel was the first time that I myself started getting emotional as I neared the end of the writing process – like I didn’t want it to end. These characters have grown on me too.
I hope you’ll pick it up, and I hope you enjoy it!
