Hi, everyone. I’m planning to be at Supanova Brisbane 9-10th November with my newly hatched Jakirian Cycle (for those from USA this is the Australian version of ComiCon). I’m expecting to be hugely entertained by the cosplay and the usual antics of the crowd as I sit at my table in Artist’s Alley with fellow Queensland writers Rowena Cory Daniells (who some of you might remember from MGC) and Cheryse Durrant.
The Jakirian Cycle comprises three books, The Calvanni, Scytheman, and Sorcerer. Check out the covers.
All three are very much in the ink-and-paper realm and I’ll have a ton of copies with me at Supanova.
I’ll also have a pull-up banner designed by Daryl Linquist, who was the cover artist for the books. Check it out below.
I love the way Daryl has touched the edges to turn the banner into an artwork.
The kindle versions should up by Supanova. I’ll be sure to make an announcement. Stay tuned for some promotional offers.
The Jakirian series is Heroic Fantasy set on the world of Yos, with unique ecology and twin suns, where all metal is magical and control of magic is the basis for power. The setting includes fantastical magical artefacts such as glowmetals, ceramic weapons and an array of new creatures.
In The Calvanni, the cavern-dwelling Eathal have emerged to wreak their vengeance on mankind. The fate of innocent thousands rests on finding the Scion – lost heir to the fallen Empire. The Temple has outlawed the ancient practice of Sorcery. Its Druids dominate religious and secular power, but are ill-equipped to resist an unknown evil once contained by the Emperors.
Scytheman follows on from events in The Calvanni. The city of Raynor is now in turmoil. False-Scion Osterac has declared himself heir to the fallen Empire and his supporters riot on the streets. Legions of non-human Eathal advance across the continent, destroying all in their path. The future of Yos lies in the balance and only the Scion can unite the shattered fragments of the fallen Empire. Pursued by the renegade Sorcerer Raziin, Cedrin and Ellen struggle to stay alive on a lawless continent torn by war. They are drawn toward a lethal contest for the awesome power of the Spear of Carris, where the identity of the true Scion will be revealed.
The three books follow Cedrin and Ellen as they face deeper and more hidden threats. Pursuing them is Raziin, a vicious renegade who seeks to claim the ultimate power of the Spear of Carris for himself. Eventually they must face a final challenge as the most ancient secrets that bind their three bloodlines are revealed.
I can’t tell you too much more about Sorcerer without spoilers.
If you are in Brisbane on the weekend of the 9-10th November, drop in and say hello. I’ll be sure to post some pictures of the weekend after the event:)
