Join host Adrian M. Gibson and authors Fonda Lee, Gareth Hanrahan, Jadie Jang and Peter Hartog as they explore the urban sprawl of fictional cities. During the panel they discuss the distinctive character of both fictional and real-world cities, how to use a setting to enhance worldbuilding, character and plot, creating fictional cities from scratch compared to representing real cities, city-related tropes, worldbuidling advice for writers and much more.
Pieces of Eight was a nearly perfect sequel to Bloodlines and I am so excited to see what the Guardian of Empire City must confront next. Hartog’s character work is so well done that choosing a favorite character is almost impossible. While parts of the ending fell a little flat for me, my overall enjoyment of the book was not affected. The Guardian of Empire City series has become one of my favorites and I can’t wait for the next entry.
The Guardian of Empire City series is shaping up to be an amazing trilogy (or longer) series, much like the Dresden files by Jim Butcher. And the comparison doesn’t stop there. Every book so far is a big mystery to solve and contains urban fantasy (with also) sci-fi elements. So in conclusion, if you’re a rousing fan of big murder riddles set in worlds filled with shiny toys, magic dust and grim creatures of the night, Peter Hartog’s Pieces of Eight should be high on your TBR and is a near perfect sequel to Bloodlines.
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 all and welcome to the cover reveal for Pieces of Eight, the sequel to Bloodlines and second book in The Guardian of Empire City series by Peter Hartog! I really loved the first book in this series so I am excited to reveal to you the cover for the sequel as well as a few other goodies, such a short Q&A with Peter and when you can expect to get your hands on Pieces of Eight. I’m practically foaming at the mouth in anticipation, myself.
Welcome to FanFiAddict’s stop on the book tour for Peter Hartog’s Bloodlines (The Guardian of Empire City #1). We want to thank Justine & Timy @ Storytellers on Tour for letting us be involved and a big shoutout to Peter on the release of his debut!
