The Amber Isle (Book of Never #1) is unleashed!
If you're looking for a fun read that's a little bit like having Indiana Jones in an epic fantasy setting (with more sarcasm) then you might enjoy The Amber Isle.
Roguish 'Never' is on a quest to lift a curse on his blood and to learn his true name; but upon joining a group of treasure-hunters he soon finds himself unearthing world-altering secrets that have long lain dormant within the mysterious Amber Isle.
The Amber Isle is the first in a five book series that I'm releasing over the course of 2016. They'll start off as novellas and by book four and five, be closer to novel length. Each adventure has a distinct setting (such as the Amber Isle itself or the birch forests in Book 2) and will be closely linked by the main quest; Never's search for the truth about his name and his past.
I chat a little about the book during an interview with J. Evan Stuart if you'd like to read a little about behind the scenes have a look :)
I'm really happy with my pre-release reviews (thanks to the readers who were generous enough to read the story early!) You can check out one of them below:
