Book 1: Shattered Blood

Available here and book stores

During the Age of Heroes, Gods would use mortal souls as pieces for their games, games which would decide the fate of the world. But as their latest game neared its conclusion, it was interrupted by the sinking of the island of Atlantis, an event which forcibly separated the ancient world in two, those of mortals and those of myths.

Now, millennia later, Princess Selesia, the Crown Princess of the mythical Kingdom of Artlars and Field Marshall Archean, a war weary survivor of the Third World War, are chosen as the pieces for the Gods latest game.

Separated by unfathomable distance and time, but bound by ancient prophecy, their separate but interlinked journeys could decide the survival or destruction of their worlds.

Release date: 22nd March 2022
