Welcome fantasy fans. This month has been a fantastic one for us and for our allies across the board. We’ve already seen new work and awards for L.E.Parr and Jon Franklyn. Today we’ve got another big friend of ours who keeps on knocking it out of the park. Eric K. Barnum is now an award-winning novelist, and he’s been crushing it lately. He’s probably the writer we know with the best pace, so if you’re interested in diving into a fantasy series that just keeps growing, there’s really no one better to follow.
In Barnum’s latest work, The Temple of the Golden Serpent, he ventures into a new part of the Forsaken Isles. A new continent takes center stage, and you get to follow along with a battle priest named Jerranic as he deals with various faiths in the world. Barnum is known for subverting expectations and stepping around common tropes, and if that’s the kind of fantasy you’re interesting in reading, he certainly does not disappoint. He also continues along with his generous world-building, using this story to develop the Forsaken Isles further while still delivering a complete package that revolves around new thrills and drama.
By 2018 ELIT Award Winner for Best Fantasy, Eric K. Barnum, comes a new novella, on sale for $0.99 now!
A Hell Lord is bent on using addiction as a tool of religious control. Heroes will rise up, but what can they do when the worshippers believe they serve Heaven?
Join battle priest Jerranic, a servant of Heaven, as they explore a new land and encounter a strange new faith. The devout use drugs as part of their rituals. Beyond this strange quirk, the symbolism and language of the faithful is like anything righteous Jerranic would encounter in his own temples. Yet, something is amiss in the land of Pel Paijan. Jerranic must figure it out to save the Paijans, but also to ensure the lethal form of spreading the religion does not someday destroy his own nation.
At 48 pages, this novella will introduce you to the worshippers of the Sun God, Pha Ran, and a new culture not of the Forsaken Isles on a different continent. Fast-paced and rich in detail, meet a Hell Lord the way they should have always been presented… cloaked to look pleasing to the eye but with a sinister purpose.
