When young Eskandar leaves his ship with the tough broomrider girl Kellani, he has no idea how much his dull life in the navy is about to change.

Being chased by desert robbers, delving through ancient tombs, fighting mighty jinn and liberating Kalbakar Keep makes him aware of his past – and his future.

He is a Wyrmcaller; a person of great magic, a speaker with wyrms, and the defender of Bodrus the Sleeping God. Quite a change for a one-handed seventeen-year-old, five-feet-plus ship’s boy.

And that’s not all; an ancient lich lord with an army of mad minions, aided by the jinn and a bunch of pirates, threaten the Sleeping God’s safety. As Bodrus’ defender, Eskandar is the one to foil their plans. But for that he needs an army. An army of kids...

Follow Eskandar and his friends in The Pirates of Brisa, Book 2 of Wyrms of Pasandir, a grand fantasy adventure in a world of wyrms, steamships, magic and mayhem!

Sorcery dawned 500 years BCE, but did it ever really end? To know what happened, we must return to the middle ages - to a time that birthed legends whom history forgot...


The Ambrosius Chronicles begins around 500 BCE, in a world with a history that's very different from what we have recorded. As a result of unseen hands, meddling from the shadows, the figures we believe to be legend are true, but events surrounding them, not so much.


When using realism, you can draw on iconic figures from mythology. When world building, you can do anything. The Ambrosius Chronicles boasts both, with the remarkable premise of a history rich with magic and all manner of mythical creatures.


Kings of human, dwarven and elven peoples rule across medieval Albion; wizards occupy the ancient kingdom of East Anglia and strive to exert supremacy over all magical affairs; and all manner of mythical creatures dwell within the mysterious world known as Faerie.


Synopsis


For reasons that Ezekiel Stone and Laura Tailor are far from realising, their lives are intertwined with events guided by unseen hands that require the rediscovery of buried history and guarded secrets to overcome. Alas, getting involved has the potential to make things worse, because what they learn, how, and their resulting choices will determine the sides they take in struggles between creation's children, dating back to time immemorial.


Set around 1270 CE, Albion, representatives of London, led by their supreme sorcerer arrive at Norwich with accusations of warlocks attacking their kingdom. Zeke Stone, the tower guard's latest recruit, unwittingly becomes a pawn between the Wizard Council and enemies long thought vanquished. Under the threat of war with the great kingdom of Mercia, the council's race to learn the secrets of a dark object and uncover the plans and identity of their adversary place Zeke in the middle of an unlikely alliance where he must fight for his life, his future, and the future of Albion.


While Zeke is unwitting, Laura Tailor is as dutiful as she is ambitious, and that ambition threatens to be her undoing, leading her down a path with dangers radically different from anything she could have envisioned from reading books. Nathaniel Pearce is a druid, an expert in old and forgotten enchantments, and Zeke's best friend, but even his knowledge doesn’t compare to the vastness of Malachi's mental archive. As a mysterious alleged madman, operating under various identities, there is much of Malachi's story to be discovered.


The Corral Ring is a brilliant start to what promises to be an amazing high fantasy series, home to sword and sorcery, powerful monarchs, feudal lords, mythical creatures, hidden agendas, a little politics and a lot of action and adventure!

REVISED EDITION (April 2015)

Secure in his position as the mighty Prince-warlock’s son, eighteen-year-old Basil is content with his solitary life of study and magic. He has a comfortable set of rooms in his father’s tower, he has his books and scrolls, and he is perfectly happy. Until the Warlockry Council summons him, and their demands sets his whole, safe existence tottering. Scared and unsure, he decides to run, and takes the first ship out of town. On board he meets Yarwan, the handsome midshipman, who awakens feelings he never knew existed.

Maud of the M'Brannoe, at nineteen already a mighty Kell warrioress, is about to graduate as a Lioness, a special duty officer answering to her Queen and no one else. The Prince-warlock asks her to fetch a certain boy from a pirate town, who could be double for his son. On their way back, someone sabotages their airship and the two find themselves marooned in an ill-reputed forest. Together, the young lioness and Jurgis the lookalike run for the coast and a ship home, while finding solace in each other’s arms.

Then the four young people meet, and Basil learns of a spell that might help him. Only the spell’s creator, the infamous Arrangh Warlock, disappeared nearly a century ago. When the four young people decide to go looking for him, they start on a path leading to an old war and unsolved mysteries that will change the world. Or kill them.

A spirited fantasy story of high adventure, sparkling humor and romantic love in an alternate earth setting of tropical islands, pirates, steamships and wyrms, where both magic and early modern technology flourish. 

 

(From the 5* Review at: http://apocalypsebooked.com/bookreview-lioness-of-kell/)

Lioness of Kell is a long read in the tradition of high fantasy and it is worth every page of it.

If you are looking for a fantasy book with diversity in it then you should definitely check this out. You get POC main female character, a disabled character, and a queer relationship.

 (From the 5* Review at: http://www.iheartreading.net/book-tour/book-review-lioness-of-kell-by-paul-e-horsman/)

 I have to applaud Lioness of Kell for having one of the most diverse casts I’ve ever come across in a fantasy book. Here we see a female person of color in the role of the protagonist, and instead of jumping to stereotypes, Maud is realistic, genuine, a regular person, with flaws and troubles.

 (From the 4* Review at: https://booksandashes.wordpress.com/)

From the world building to the storytelling and its pace, Lioness of Kell is a great book that is different from so many of the other books in the fantasy genre.

Recommend?: Yes definitely! I would be crazy not to recommend a book that features a WoC as the main protagonist, a character with a lame foot, and a non-heterosexual relationship!
