Join FanFiAddict’s Adrian M. Gibson and author Nia “N. E.” Davenport for a chat about her debut novel The Blood Trials, breaking into the SFF market, incorporating geopolitics, race and magic into her fictional world, writing an ass-kicking female protagonist, delivering tense, powerful action scenes and much more.
I loved N. E. Davenport’s The Blood Trials. I went into this book without any expectations and turned the final page both surprised and satisfied. It offers up a complex world, rife with geopolitical conflicts, futuristic technologies and awesome fight scenes. But it also introduces a dark, supernatural magic system that plays into the racial and social dynamics of its corrupt society. All of this combines for a solid debut and a wondrous world that I can’t wait to read more of.
