In both my release spotlight posts for January and for the whole year, I forgot one title. It was included in my 2014 eager meter poll but I forgot it until it showed up at my door, courtesy of Orbit books. On January 28th, another promising Epic Fantasy will hit the shelves. You can also read the first chapter here. Here's the blurb:
The kingdom of Carinthia is rich, powerful and undefeated. A thousand years ago, its ancestors were the spell-wielding northern tribes who crushed the Roman Empire. Their legendary hexmasters can destroy whole armies and turn battlefields into fiery lakes of lava.
Magic is Carinthia's wealth, protection and way of life. But the age of magic is dying. Some would do anything to see it return: any act, no matter how terrible, is justified, so long as the hexmasters can still protect their homeland.
The kingdom is poised between order and chaos - and the smallest spark is the difference between disaster and triumph.
