Fallen Kingdoms Chronicles
Murder is bad, but that is especially true when you’re the one being accused of it.
In my novel, Lamp of Light: Only the Light will Prove Her Innocence, which is the first book in my Fallen Kingdoms series, Esther Anna is the queen of Tibethia.
Now, being a queen might sound like a great time, but that stops being true when someone murders your husband, the King, and then frames you for it.
Esther Anna has to cope with the loss of a beloved husband, bear the weight of knowing who killed him while being unable to do anything about it, and deal with the betrayal of her step-daughter, Noelle, who immediately sentences Esther to death for killing the King.
Noelle is fully aware that Esther did not kill King Lachance, but Esther has to run if she wants to stand a chance at surviving. Before long, Esther realizes that she isn’t just running from the King’s Guard, but a Wendigo named Damian who will stop at nothing to find her.
When a Fairy Prince by the name of Philip tells her of a mysterious artifact that can prove her innocence and finally set the record straight in the kingdom, Esther heads off to track this thing down while maintaining a solid distance ahead of Damian the Wendigo who absolutely means to harm her.
Even when Esther finds out that the artifact is supposedly guarded by a treacherous, unstoppable sea creature, she realizes that she will stop at nothing to prove her innocence.
Esther is running away from one monster and towards another, but she’s determined to see the truth out and to awaken her people to the mysterious shadow pulling the strings of her court.
This book brings you on a whirlwind adventure as this dedicated Queen gives everything she has to prove to her people that she is innocent so that she can save them from unspeakable horrors.
This story is close to my heart, and I really do believe that fans of my work will be happy with it. I know I am, and I can’t wait to bring you more from this dark and terrible world.
As always, you can drop by to pick this one up on Amazon, and it’s even available in paperback!
I can’t wait to hear your thoughts, and I really hope that you all enjoy Esther’s world.
Here is an Amazon Review I got for Book 1: Lamp of Light:
October 27, 2017
A phenomenal author. The story follows the Queen Esther Anna who has been framed as her husband’s murderer by her stepdaughter, Princess Noelle, and her quest to clear her name. A twisted spin on the traditional snow white fairy tale, with a lovely flow. At times very innocent, and other times very twisted, it is an enjoyable story for any fantasy lover. I personally really like twisted takes on the traditional Disney stories.
For lovers of the tv show Once Upon a Time, this story will offer you the flavor of the whole “different fairy tales intertwining into one grand storyline”, while the flow and structure are different to give you a refreshing new take on it, in ways the tv show did not explore. In addition, the horror premise of the story makes the twists and turns and the roles of the characters more skewered and dark to add another layer of fun in contrast to the traditional Disney tales.
As someone who has read a few of the author’s works, I highly recommend him.
