99c Dark Fantasy Novel, Steel, Magick and Faith, on sale

Steel, Magick and Faith is a full-length, dark, epic fantasy novel set in a world where mythological creatures and magick exist. However the world is not a black-and-white high fantasy, rather it is grim, realistic, and all the factions and characters have their own motivations, perspectives and justifications for what they do. Humans are largely influenced by technocratic and religious cults, and villages and towns dot the wild wilderness, with a few large cities of might.

Reviews said, that characters were 'honourable, vindictive, evil, mysterious, stubborn, magical, everything that heroes and villains should be', and that fans of realistic fantasy would enjoy the book.

Read the reviews, and a free sample of the book here:


This is quality fantasy, only for 99c this holiday season.

'Then somewhere in the fickle mists of creation came humanity, clawing and afraid, grasping and ambitious. Enveloped in a dangerous world, these creatures lived as scavengers; afraid of the greater things of the world. They were beset by disease, lack of claws or fangs, and the lack of habitat to call their own. These fleshy, naked beings were doomed to die of attrition... Ancient forces began to pay attention to the growing incursion, plaguing them, slaying stragglers at night. But still the humans held on to the edge of the precipice, knuckles white with effort'

'Around its face were three plates of natural chitin, one on its forehead, and two on its cheeks, flexing around its massive jaw. Remus swung his hand-axe just in time to deflect a savage bite, smashing against the monster's large teeth. The Feybeast had gotten close enough that Remus could smell the fetid breath of its salivating jaw and see its yellowing fangs'

'He could not deny the nobility he saw in many different people, bits and pieces of nobility that shined through under pressure. The guards who risked their lives to protect the villagers, Markham who flew at the dangerous dwarf, swords flashing; even an Eruthian merchant who stopped in his journey to share tales with complete strangers'

Maldives Malady, also 99c, is a lightly humorous holiday story featuring Dominic, a young man trying to find his own uniqueness in a bland and mediocre world. A chance to explore a seemingly unknown island is the perfect opportunity for this.

'Hey Dom, how you doin'?' a voice boomed. It was Ben. They proceeded to talk about the upcoming exams, which were deceptively close as it was week 10 at the moment. Yes, they would be alright. Yes, they would meet up afterwards. No, he hadn't studied more than Ben had. As he clapped the phone closed after the genial conversation reached its natural nadir, he had forgotten most of what had been said'

'He walked a few more steps. He could see nothing now except for the thick trees and long ferns and grasses that surrounded him. He was enveloped into the confined space between trees, surrounded by the jungle heat and staccato chirps... This continued for a seemingly oppressive amount of time, and he began to doubt his decision. To come to this place. To take a chance with his life, which was going in the right direction'
