Hey there regulars, passers-by, and detractors, just a heads up that my latest fiction release – the grimdark fantasy / horror novel “Light Dawning” – is available for free this week through Friday night!
You can snag a copy for yourself at no cost in digital Kindle format at Amazon here (the physical edition remains available for sale at normal price).
If you missed it or want to try before you (freely) buy, the full first chapter can be read at this location.
Heavily inspired by a variety of metal from the likes of Code to Shining to Ihsahn, a full playlist that evokes the themes and mood of the book can also be heard below after the trailer.
Check it all out and let me know what you think! Here’s a quick synopsis of what to expect from the book:
Once known as the City on the Hill and revered far and wide for its independence and boundless opportunity, Cestia has become home only to the damned. Surviving under the brutal occupation of a southern empire for three long years, the oppressed populace has lost hope of liberation, turning instead towards an increasingly desperate rebellion willing to commit any atrocity for a chance at freedom.
As total war approaches, four lost souls trapped behind Cestia’s walls are on a collision course with fate, destined to either save the city or see it utterly destroyed while calling on forces beyond mankind’s comprehension. For good or ill, the light of a new day is about to dawn.
