With so many great Indie authors writing books, I wanted to give them their own post to highlight all the good work being done. I think I read more Indie books than ever last year, and here are my favorites.
Synopsis Following on from D.W. Ross’ debut novel Cold From The North, The Darkest Dusk is the next instalment of the adventures of Ogulf Harlsbane and his allies as they attempt to thwart the advances of malevolent forces trying to take over the realm of Gelenea. Battle lines are drawn all over the continent as […]
Join David as he chats with author D.W. Ross about his fantasy series, The Onyxborn Chronicle, starting with Cold From the North and moving onto The Darkest Dusk. They also share their mutual childhood fear of thick fantasy novels, which still stands (pun intended) today in some form or fashion – among other things.
Cold from the North begins in Broadheim, a Nordic inspired land, that is suffering from a much colder winter than usual. We’re quickly introduced to Ogulf a young viking and his friend Melcun who posses some interesting abilities that are rather frowned upon. A rather mysterious and dangerous enemy is lurking on the horizon, flattening everything in it’s path. This causes the main characters to quickly be thrown into the deep end, deciding it’s best to run and regroup rather than fight an unknown enemy. Now, some of this might sounds familiar, which it is, but the plot was driven forward at a perfect pace and I felt myself easily drawn into the world and its characters. The Nordic/Viking theme was also never lost in the book and at times I felt that cold that the characters felt.
Last week while I was doing my usual aimless scrolling through Twitter, I came across a call for any bloggers who wanted to participate in a secret project involving self published books, I knew I had to join in. It turns out that what Jodie from Witty & Sarcastic Book Club has envisioned is a Self-Published Authors Appreciation Week! So, join me today as I run you through 8 self-published books (and a few honorable mentions) that I think you should go ahead and add to your immediate TBR.
Hello and welcome to FanFiAddict’s stop on the book tour for D.W. Ross’ Cold From the North (Onyxborn Chronicle #1). We want to thank Justine & Timy @ Storytellers on Tour for letting us be involved and a big shoutout to D.W. on the release of Cold From the North and it’s forthcoming sequel The Darkest Dusk, which we recently had the pleasure of helping to do a cover reveal for.
