It’s been a while coming, but finally I’m really excited to be able to tell people that my fantasy series The Twins of Saranthium has a new English language publisher; Harlequin Escape will be publishing the first book Awakening in ebook on November 1st. Isn’t it a beautiful cover? I just love it.
The Twins is my first series and if you like epic fantasy adventure, romance, danger and dragons you’ll probably like this. The second book, Betrayal, will be out next year and the third, Redemption in 2015 – I’m still working on that one!
Here’s the blurb about Awakening…..
“ For two thousand years, the serpents of Salmut and their riders have kept the people of Saranthium safe — but the pact between human and serpent is failing. Rogue serpents are attacking villages, and rumours abound that the banished god of the serpents, Azoth, has returned to resurrect his empire of slavery.
Orphan, thief and survivor Shaan works in the serpent yards of Salmut and wakes from dreams of blood and death. The surprising discovery that she can speak with Nuathin, the oldest serpent of the yards, brings her to the attention of sept leader, Balkis. Handsome, arrogant and seductive, Balkis is also a man with powerful and dangerous alliances and Shaan becomes the target of the city’s most feared arms men: The Faithful.
Meanwhile in the deserts, a young man named Tallis defends his clan against rogue serpents, driving them off with supernatural force. When he faces becoming an outcast because of his power, the truth of his birth is revealed and he embarks on a journey to understand the strength locked within his mind.
Drawn together, Shaan and Tallis become ensnared in the resurrection of an ancient conflict, but on whose side will they stand — that of the serpents or the people?”
So if you like the sound of it, feel free to share the love around, get one for your mum or just tell random people on the street!
Awakening is out on November 1st from most ebook retailers. For more about my Twins series go to my parent website www.lara-morgan.com
