Crown of Vengeance Pre-Order Announcement, Book Synopsis, and Exclusive Images


My good friend Stephen Zimmer, author, filmmaker, a true modern day renaissance man, has given me an opportunity that I am honored to take advantage of. For those of you who may have missed it, Zimmer wrote The Exodus Gate, an excellent read and the first book in the epic fantasy series, The Rising Dawn Saga.

With plans to release the second book in the series in 2010, Zimmer has stayed busy with a book tour, multiple convention appearances, and signings, not to mention that he has authored a book in a completely new series, that can be pre-ordered now.

The opportunity that Zimmer has given me is to be one of a limited number of bloggers to release some exclusive information on the book as well the cover art (pictured to the right), and an exclusive image you won't see anywhere else (pictured after the jump). Each blogger chosen for this limited press release has been given a separate image.

For all of the information now available on the book and how to pre-order one of 100 very special limited edition copies, check after the jump.


First, enjoy this synopsis of Crown of Vengeance, the first book in the new series, Fires in Eden.

Begin an Epic Journey...

On a night that begins no different from any other, strange mists engulf
Janus Roland, Erika Laesig, Mershad Shahab, and several others going about their lives in a quiet midwestern town. When the mist dissipates, they
all find themselves looking up into the bright skies of a new, incredible
world.

Without explanation of why it has happened, or any notion of where they
are, they embark upon a grand adventure within the fantastical world of
Ave. Some find themselves in the lands of the Saxan Kingdom, while others
have emerged within the lands of the Onan, one of the tribes in the Five
Realms confederation.

Storms of war loom over both Saxany and the Five Realms, as invasion
forces mass under the inspiration of The Unifier, a mysterious,
captivating figure whose influence has swept across the surface of Ave
ever since His rise to power in the Gallean duchy of Avanor. It is a war
that will be fought in the skies, upon the seas, on land, and even in
places non-physical in nature.

A majestic, epic fantasy that begins many adventures and journeys across a
diverse and enthralling world, filled with races and creatures both
familiar and new, Crown of Vengeance lights the flame of the Fires in Eden
series, bringing to life a bold, far-ranging, and grand new venture within
the realms of fantasy literature.
