WORDS OF FURY, volume 2 in the Words of Power samurai fantasy series, is now released in the U.S. by the UK-based indie publisher, RVSMedia (Amazon ISBN-13: 978-1544214832; paperback $17.99; also available as Kindle eBook).

Christians are being persecuted, but now the fight back to freedom has begun...

Imagine a great multi-cultural city called Jade, which trade has made rich. Now the walls are going up around Foreigners’ Town and the persecution of Christians starts. However, a handful of heroes manage to escape by balloon. As they fight back, they must find sanctuary in a psychic fortress called “The Waning of the Moon” or their world will end…and so will ours.

WORDS OF FURY has real heart and real magic as well as real miracles. In it Emmanuel Kinross, ‘Man’ to his friends, has been exiled from Albion to samurai Japan, where steam-powered Europe is arriving. His opponent is the Lord of the North, but this entity isn’t human, and doesn’t just do dark magic: he represents cold, entropy, and the power of death. And for now, he is winning...

**Praise for the author’s work:

David Wingrove (Chung Kuo) - “A wonderful story, in the spirit of Robert Jordan.”

Thebookbag.co.uk (4 stars) - “...a story that comes to us dripping with fantasy-satisfying magic (and with) a thundering good denouement.”

AMAZON READERS “Magic, mystery and danger...hard to put down.” “A very smooth read. The exotic samurai background is accessible and (the writer) really believes in what he’s writing.” “Extraordinarily well-written fantasy...twists and plot-turns all along the way.”

METRO “There is a latent power in the story that can’t be ignored.”

THREE WEEKS “Decidedly explosive…you’re left guessing until the very end. This goes with a bang.”

 

***Coming in 2018: WORDS OF DARKNESS, volume 3 in the Words of Power series, is scheduled for 2018. Stay tuned for more info!
