Moonlake’s Spotlight (2): Man’s Damnation by Christopher Lee!

This week I have another work that I’m excited to share with you all, Man’s Damnation- Lore of the Aos Si, also taking pre-orders on Inkshares by Christopher Lee, the founder of the Indie Authors Collective! Here’s the synopsis or back cover blurb of Man’s Damnation:

Our ancestors once lived in harmony with the creator. It was a Golden Age, where man lived in the fabled Garden of Eden where none suffered and all needs were fulfilled. The Primordial Goddess was their mother and her first child was Adam.

Adam, the first man, and father of mankind was charged with the protection of her sacred creation. The power bestowed upon him proved too great for Adam thus was born the folly of man. The Goddess rested for the act of creation had drained her of her power. Adam was filled with hubris and named himself God among men.

His pride corrupted the creation of the Goddess and perverted mankind. War between Adam and the Goddess raged in the heavens. The Fae, the siblings of mankind, waged war on their rebellious brothers and sisters. The Goddess claimed victory over Adam and mankind was banished from Eden and stripped of their ability to wield the gift of magic.

It is the year 3002 B.C.E. in the Silver Age. The Fae King Dagda rules over the four houses of the Seeley Court of Tír na nÓg. Mankind is scattered across the realms of Tír na nÓg and Tír nam Beo. Tensions between the Fae and Man are reaching a breaking point. As the Silver Age draws to a close the world will be thrown into chaos by the return of the Usurper Adam. Four young souls will rise as the ancient forces of the world continue their age-old feud. As MidSummer’s Eve approaches, the first and greatest world war will erupt once more between Man and the Fae.

If you are a die-hard fan of lore like me, you would be hooked as I am now!”

Overall, I think this series has large potential. It reminds me of LoR in the immensity and complexity of the underlying world, the large cast and rich lores woven into the tapestry of the world itself. Get behind this series on Inkshares now if you appreciate any of these elements.

Moonlake’s Spotlight (1): The War of Wind and Moon by Darcy Conroy!

I’m finally excited to do my post today which is the start of a brand new post series called Moonlake’s Spotlight! This will happen in conjunction with a brand new section that I’m opening on my blog as noted on the About page.

So, in this grand opening, I would like to share with you all a high quality work, The War of Wind and Moon , now taking pre-orders on Inkshares by Darcy Conroy who also wrote As Long as She Lives! Here’s the synopsis or back cover blurb of the War of Wind and Moon:

Seventeen-year-old Mia trusts no-one. She wants to – she’d give almost anything to be able to – but when your physical and emotional safety depends on the acute awareness of every whim and mood swing of your narcissistic, rage-filled mother, mistrust is a survival instinct.

Expert at reading body language, facial expressions and vocal fluctuations, Mia is permanently prepared to fight or flee at the slightest hint of anger, aggression or even just disapproval. She’s learned it’s easier to be alone.

But Mia’s not alone. In fact, she’s been under surveillance for some time and the supernatural creature watching her is about to make a report to its masters that will make them question everything they thought they knew about death, life and what happens in between.

Also, here’re selected excerpts that readers have loved about this work:

“Floating to the ceiling of Mia’s bedroom, its dangling belly swollen after a feast of rage and fear, the Gossip enjoyed a dessert of contempt and defiance”

“There were so many they could have chosen – an elegant bottle or a happy leaf green – but no, someone had chosen the mud green of bruised avocado flesh. Which, now she thought about it, was appropriate, considering the state of her back this morning.”
