Here's a list of all my books so far, including the newly released 'The Shard of Palrinah', sequel to 'Steel, Magick and Faith!'
Barnes and Noble Nook: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/steel-magick-and-faith-tp-grish/1114304487
In the ancient and wild world of Glenryth, Fey creatures and a nascent humanity have come into conflict, the motives of each other mutually unfathomable and alien.
Technological cults and Monotheistic religions are worshipped, any suspicion of pagan or Fey magickal taint is reviled. Prophets spread far and wide, offering hope and comfort to the beleaguered masses. Mankind is not totally separate from the energies that suffuse Glenryth, as an unfortunate few are born as Touched.
When local dwarves put a curse upon the town of High Peaks, Remus, the aloof and irritable woodcutter and sage, must try and ebb the tide of xenophobic anger that could engulf himself and any other folk that are labelled as outcasts. But when a caravan of technocrat pilgrims fails to arrive, and the body of a local child is found in the woodlands, Remus, along with the capricious Touched Elaina, must try to understand the nature of morality in a world cloaked in suspicion and fear, and, ultimately, to prevent a brewing war that could send the region spiraling into chaos and destruction.
This book is a work that has been years in the making, and it was finished in a feverish few months. It is a dark fantasy with more greys than blacks or whites, and themes of the nature of belief systems, and the consequences of individual power.
2) The Shard of Palrinah: Book 2 of The Remus Rothwyn Chronicles
After saving High Peaks from a devastating war between Humankind and Fey, Remus and Elaina head to the grand city of Yondern to continue their adventures, yearning for excitement and the chance to do good.
However, the long-brewing political conflict between the Steelwielders and Paragonites has erupted into open war, and try as they might, the travelers cannot escape the eye of suspicious factions. Once-friendly factions have turned wary, and they find themselves allying with those who they would least expect.
An old friend, the bard Perfidian, confronts them with troubling information, hinting at a deeper objective to the brewing war, and possibly to an object of power that could wreak devastation upon the land in the hands of the power-hungry.
The three friends must discover what the Steelwielder technocrats and Paragonite monks are truly seeking in a remote corner of Glenryth, in a deadly game of cat and mouse involving dark and sinister forces, both Human and otherwise.
This is the sequel to Book 1, Steel, Magick and Faith!
The Shard of Palrinah is the dark fantasy sequel to Steel, Magick and Faith. The full-length novel is the result of a lot of love and sweat, and I am excited about it being out!
3) Maldives Malady: A Tropical Adventure
Barnes and Noble Nook: http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/maldives-malady-tp-grish/1114675938
Dominic is an average University student who feels his life is stuck in a rut. Although he has a job, good grades and friends, he feels like his life is passing him by without him really living, or doing anything outside the mundane and mainstream.
A trip to a seemingly unknown island in the Maldives is the perfect opportunity for him to have a unique and personal experience, so Dom sets off, alone. However he finds that it is not so easy to escape the grasp of mediocrity and uniformity that has enveloped his world, and he must reevaluate his feelings about life, self-worth, and what makes an individual.
This is a fictional short story with light drama and humour. It is set in a fictional version of the real world, in which a mysterious island called Goljaban exists among the Maldives islands.
A short story I started writing whilst in University, and polished off recently. I like to think it has a dry wit, and light drama elements. I hope you enjoy it.
