|This week’s Notable and Quotable from the Bloodlines Reforged Saga. |
This week’s Notable and Quotable comes from Fires that Forge, Book I of the Lords of Order & Chaos Series.
Silas struggled to refrain from releasing the words that were pressing behind his teeth. Now was not the time. Proper timing on his part was imperative.
The marble lid for the tomb was secured in place, and Dyllance began his final prayer.
Silas painted his practiced expression across the canvas of his face but could feel his hate boiling up the top of his spine and into the base of his skull. If he were forced to be near Dyllance for much longer, there would be another murder, although this one would be rather easy to solve. How many children have you beaten today, priest? was Silas’s only thought for several moments. How many will you beat tomorrow?
I hope this week’s newsletter finds you all well.
If you’re looking for a starter into the Bloodlines Reforged Saga, Fires that Forge and/or Roland’s Path are the starting blocks. The complete first trilogies of both are available on Amazon and can be found here; Heirs of Vanity and Lords of Order & Chaos. We have at least two more series planned (Orphan’s Blade and Templar’s Rebellion) that will go into the over all Saga. Each series is set up to stand alone, but you will find a deeper understanding of all the characters involved if you read all the series. Please consider leaving us a review on Amazon and/or Goodreads. Thanks!
Keep an eye out for the announcement of a winner in the audiobook giveaway of Heirs of Vanity, the boxset of Roland’s Path, Roland’s Vow, and Roland’s Triumph!
You can find an ever-growing glossary and geographic guide on our website here; www.bloodlinesreforged.com. You can also find a few spoilers such as lineage of kingdoms, the Code of the Cavalier, and so on.
I need to mention Avoiding the Abyss, Book I in the Abyss Trilogy by A.C. Ward. “She was raised on lies. Now she must figure out what’s real, or the world is doomed. Join a teen’s struggle with secret powers in a demonic dystopia.”
This is a great young adult adventure available on Amazon now.
I also need to tell you about The Wizard and Warrior, by Danny F. Santos. It’s an original sword & sorcery tale available for FREE!
While we’re on the subject of FREE reads, the Christian Sci-Fi & Fantasy Giveaway is running throughout August with a number of FREE reads available.
On the home front, we’re going to begin creating a few videos of me reading segments of Roland’s Path and Fires that Forge which can be found on our Facebook page here; Facebook Bloodlines. We just added a new page to our website where those videos will be showcased. I’m about 19k words into Stalking Shadows, Book IV of the Lords of Order and Chaos Series. I know, this one is slow going for me for some reason.
Here’s hoping you’re all surviving the Big Q and adjusting to the huge changes we’re all facing right now.
We had a pretty great gaming session this last week. We’re embarking on a Spacemaster campaign set in a homebrew universe that is a combo of many popular sci/fi worlds from movies, books, and a few video games. Our party consists of a Chiss, a Wookie, a Krogan, a Turian, a Salarian, a Quarian, and a Vulcan. This week our crew managed to rob a bank on the Citadel (yes, like the one from Mass Effect) without anyone being the wiser… so far.
Let me know how you’re doing. Feel free to drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org with word of how you’re doing, questions about our tales, or comments about the story or the world of Stratvs. If you enjoy our brand of ‘humor’ or just want more frequent updates, you can follow us on Facebook here; Roland’s Quest!
Until next time, ‘Crush your Enemies!’
