The second book in The Bastard Cadre is available now.
The Godslayers’ Legacy picks up six months after the events of A God-Blasted Land (Grab a free copy of A God-Blasted Land). We catch up with Avril and Ranora at Frake’s Peak. Avril, perhaps as expected, is struggling to fit into his new role as the first-sworn of one Lord Obdurin’s cadres of bondsmen, the problem isn’t helped by the fact he’s the only member of the cadre at Frake’s Peak. We do get to meet some members of his cadre through, and I think it’s fair to say none of them are exactly what Avril expects. They were all fun to write about and I hope they’ll be fun to read about too.
A God-Blasted Land introduced us to a very small part of post-apocalyptic Newterra, the wastelands and the abandoned, but perfectly pristine, cities. We got to meet some of the good guys, some of the bad guys, and some of the in-betweens.
This time around we get a glimpse of the bigger players, the larger threats, and perhaps a hint of where things are headed for Avril.
The story is still building and there’s plenty more to come, but I’m very happy with this book (no Lucasing this time, I promise). I hope you’ll enjoy it too, and if you do, let me know. There’s a special offer at the end of the book for anybody who leaves a review.
I’m off to keep the momentum going and work on book three in the series. I can’t wait to share that book with you too.
The Godslayers’ Legacy comes in at a whisker under 40,000 words (Amazon claims this is 141 pages) so will suit anybody who enjoys epic science fiction and fantasy, but can’t quite bear the longterm time commitment required for so many of the popular science fiction and fantasy doorstoppers.
The Godslayers’ Legacy is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, iTunes, Kobobooks, and Smashwords.
