New Release – Tamesa

TAMESA: A DIVIDED WORLD

In a collaborative effort with a fantastic author, Tom Fallwell, I would like to announce a new fantasy novel, Tamesa! We’ve both put more than a year into this effort and are very pleased with the results. I hope you will check out our new book and consider leaving a review once you’ve read it. Thank you.

Tamesa ipad_1-SMA divided world. A corrupt ruler. A forbidden rite.

Tamesa is a world torn asunder by one man’s lust for power. Herid Mhau, leader of the Ecumenic Order, used the forbidden incantations in the Xusarta Scrolls to summon the infernal Nyeshetari, causing a cataclysm that split Tamesa into two. Now, Herid rules Tamesa’s western hemisphere, seeking the power of the Zayzahrin, to transform himself into a god: immortal and unstoppable.

In a world bereft of heroes, ordinary men and women must endure the inconceivable to attempt the impossible. Tinshu Egraven, a transient thief, denies the existence of gods as he struggles to survive in a world ruled by the Ecumenic Order. After he rescues a mysterious red wolf, he discovers secrets from his past that irrevocably impact his future.

As Herid slaughters innocents to build his army, Tinshu must choose to accept what he’s rejected his entire life. A new family, a new faith, and a new found courage in not only himself, but also the whole of mankind. Who will prevail when the enemy you must first defeat lives within you?

ABOUT MY CO-AUTHOR

TomEarly in life, Tom Fallwell discovered a love for fantasy and science-fiction, delighting in the wonderful escape into realms undreamed of. Weaned on the greats like J.R.R. Tolkien, Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury, Arthur C. Clarke, Robert E. Howard, Roger Zelazny, Robert A. Heinlein, and Michael Moorcock, just to name a few, Tom’s imagination was forever inspired by those marvelous tales.

One day, he discovered a simple book of rules called ‘Chainmail’, by Gary Gygax, and found a new love: the love of creating adventures and stories of his own. ‘Chainmail’ evolved into ‘Dungeons & Dragons’, and Tom played consistently with friends as both a player and a dungeon master (DM) for decades. Such activities helped him develop his ability to create worlds and stories for other players to enjoy.

Now retired from his long career as a software developer, Tom writes all the adventures and characters that constantly fill his mind and shares them with the world.

Author Interview: Aaron-Michael Hall

Author Interview

Pukah Works

Welcome everyone.  Today, we have the mysterious Aaron-Michael Hall visiting.  Aaron-Michael, why don’t you get us started with a little bit about yourself, and where you’re from?

  • I was raised in a very small town in the Midwest. Being the youngest of eight left me out of the decision making when it came to selecting television shows or a radio station. It was not a democracy. Instead of fighting with my siblings, I would join my mother and read. She would usually have an Andre Norton book out on the sunporch where the chaos inside was barely noticeable. It is there my love for fantasy grew.

What part of the Midwest?

  • Illinois

With that type of chaos, how did you get into writing?

  • I first began writing as an escape of sorts. I cannot count the number of poems and short stories written over the years. The first I remember…

Is The Rise of Nazil trilogy for you?

Is The Rise of Nazil fantasy trilogy for you? I am asked different variations of this question often. The lands of Faélondul are not for everyone. As much as I desire to sell copies of my novels, the reader’s enjoyment of my work is more important.

So, is The Rise of Nazil for you? That depends on several factors.

1. If you are offended by some graphic scenes and torture, The Rise of Nazil is probably not for you. (Those particular scenes occupy approximately 10 pages of the 550 page novel.)

2. If you prefer fantasy littered with elves, orcs, vampires, werewolves, etc., The Rise of Nazil is probably not for you. (I love the aforementioned. I just do not write about them.)

3. If you like unnecessary battle scenes and beheadings ever other chapter, The Rise of Nazil is probably not for you. (I love a great battle scene. R.A. Salvatore is the best.)

4. If you like the overuse of magic or magical elements, The Rise of Nazil is probably not for you. (More “magic” is introduced with Seed of Scorn. It is not overdone.)

5. If you prefer a short read with a perfect ending, The Rise of Nazil is probably not for you.

6. If you are a “skimmer” and not a “reader,” The Rise of Nazil is probably not for you.

7. If you prefer action to intellectual content, The Rise of Nazil is probably not for you.
(Action is great and I love it. You will find it within these pages. However, more focus is
on the characters and plot. Dialogue and interaction is integral to your understanding of
Faélondul and its inhabitants.)

8. If you dislike romance in fantasy, The Rise of Nazil is probably not for you.

Are you still with me? Excellent.

What will you discover within the pages of The Rise of Nazil? Good question.

The Rise of Nazil is an adult epic fantasy, which is set in the land of Faélondul. We begin in the 75th year of Alberoth and end in the 75th year of Kehldaron. What does this mean? It means that it does not take place in any time or place that you can reference. It does not follow many of the “traditional” ideas of epic fantasy. Not by definition but by what many readers have come to expect.

The Rise of Nazil is filled with unique characters and situations. Though it is fantasy, the realistic element is forever present. Some of the atrocities committed can be found in our own histories. Fear not, with darkness, also comes light. This story builds with each chapter. The characters have depth, as does the plot. That plot is meticulously weaved throughout until the climatic ending. There are no easy resolutions or quick fixes. However, there are many plot twists and surprises. Some pleasantly so.

The Rise of Nazil is an adult epic fantasy that causes you to think. If you desire a short tale of dragon riding and princes saving the damsel in distress, you will not find that here. If you want an engrossing, intelligent, diverse, and multifaceted fantasy, look no further. Faélondul Awaits.

For those who have read and enjoyed The Rise of Nazil or Seed of Scorn, thank you. You have numerous choices of authors. The fact that you selected me as one of those is greatly appreciated.

If The Rise of Nazil is not quite what you are looking for, that is OK. There is a plethora of great fantasy available. I hope you find the perfect books for your taste. Once that is so, leave a review and let the author know you enjoy their work. Feedback is essential and helps us continue to create the stories you love.
