FICTION / Action and Adventure,
FICTION / Fantasy / Epic
Michael J. Sullivan's trailblazing career began with the breakout success of his Riyria series: full-bodied, spellbinding fantasy adventures whose imaginative scope and sympathetic characters won a devoted readership and comparisons to fantasy masters Brandon Sanderson, Scott Lynch, and Tolkien himself. Now, Sullivan's stunning hardcover debut,  Age of Myth, inaugurates an original five-book series--and one of fantasy's finest next-generation storytellers continues to break new ground.

Since time immemorial, humans have worshipped the gods they call Fhrey, truly a race apart: invincible in battle, masters of magic, and seemingly immortal. But when a god falls to a human blade, the balance of power between men and those they thought were gods changes forever. Now, only ...

We’ve linked to a new review for A Perfect Blindness. Here’s an excerpt:

Song of Batoche by Maia Caron

Book News
28 August 2017

A people’s struggle for rights to their land and identity, a woman’s fight for ownership of her body and soul.

In a year when Canada 150 celebrates our iconic heroes, this historical novel about the Métis, from an Indigenous author, is at the very heart of Canadian identity. After learning that her great-great-grandfather was the president of Louis Riel’s provisional government in Batoche, and her great-great-uncle was Gabriel Dumont’s war lieutenant, Maia Caron was compelled to resurrect the ghosts of her ancestors, to tell the story of the North-West Resistance, the unspoken betrayals and buried secrets of the past.

When Louis Riel arrives in Batoche, Saskatchewan, in the summer of 1884, he discovers that the rebellious Métisse Josette Lavoie is a granddaughter of the famous chief Big Bear, whom he needs as an ally. But Josette resists becoming his disciple when she learns that Riel considers the Métis a lost tribe of Israel and himself the prophet who will lead them to the Promised Land. As General Middleton’s army marches to put down the “savage half-breeds,” both Josette and Gabriel Dumont draw ever closer to one another in their struggle to manage Riel, who is determined that he will meet Middleton only in Batoche, the City of God.

The historical events unfold from inside the beautiful mind of Louis Riel, his heroic war chief Gabriel Dumont, a subversive Catholic priest, a spy for John A. Macdonald, and three women with secrets: Madeleine Dumont, Marguerite Riel, and Josette Lavoie, whose journey to redemption emerges out of devastating acts of deception as the troops converge on Batoche to destroy the Métis Nation.

Maia Caron is Red River Métis. Her great-great-grandparents were one of the founding families of Batoche, and Jean Caron Sr. and his sons were among the last twenty Métis facing Middleton’s troops when they captured Batoche. Their house was burned to the ground during the battle and rebuilt in 1890. It is now a museum exhibit on the historic site. Maia lives in Toronto.

Ronsdale Press, founded in 1988, is a literary publishing house based in Vancouver, dedicated to publishing books that give Canadians new insights into themselves and their country.

How Charles Baudelaire’s Poetry Changed My Life

Author News
25 October 2016

It’s true that literature can change your life. It changed Belgian author Bob Van Laerhoven’s. He told Inkflash:

"Because of  Les Fleurs du Mal (The Flowers Of Evil), Charles Baudelaire’s magnificent collection of poetry, I wanted to become a writer. Fat chance, everyone around me said."

In a short personal essay for the US-based writers’ blog Motive Means Opportunity, he evokes the nostalgic memory of a 17-year old Flemish country-boy, desperately wanting to create beauty.

Bob is also the author of mystery/suspense novel Baudelaire’s Revenge, which won the Hercule Poirot Prize for Best Crime Novel and the USA Best Book Award 2014 in the Fiction category. Check out a 3D preview here on Inkflash, or get totally immersed in the author’s interactive 3D room.

Our Founding Fathers rejected the notion of royalty and fought against extravagance, pomp, and circumstance. But today in Washington, members of the United States government enjoy lifestyle perks that would make Marie Antoinette envious.
