New author Allen G. Bagby has just published his debut novel, the first book in his epic fantasy Creed of Kings saga: Blood & Soul. From the book description:
The bastard prince Ledarrin is caught in the shadows of a dynasty as his brother goes on a murderous rampage to secure his birthright, overthrowing the realm. Ledarrin’s world is shattered. As he goes from the palace to the dungeon, hope for the survival of the realm seems lost. He escapes, only to be hunted by a legendary assassin. Meanwhile, demonic hordes, trapped for ages by a curse in the Underworld, await their release upon the sacrifice of the king—with plans for revenge on humanity. And so begins a heart-pounding adventure into a deadly future: a journey of loss, seduction, and betrayal. Ledarrin is joined by aging warriors and unlikely allies as they race to find the Creed of Kings, the ancient scrolls that can thwart the demons, but when Ledarrin’s true identity is revealed, he must choose between a destiny of blood—or soul.
Sounds exciting, right? Go check out Allen's website and the book's Amazon page, download or order a copy, and leave a review when you're done reading! I really truly love this book. The story is thrilling. The world is immersive. The action is breakneck. The stakes are high. The writing is wonderful. I had a blast reading it, and I enjoyed every second of working with Allen to make it as good as possible.
I'd leave an Amazon review myself if I could, but it's against the rules, so I'm relying on you, dear readers, to take up my slack! Enjoy this great novel and tell your friends!
