The Epic Unmasqued World by C.T. Phipps

 

Tell us about your novel.

I WAS A TEENAGE WEREDEER is a comedic urban fantasy novel about Jane Doe, an eighteen-year-old shapechanger who has the psychic ability to read objects. She lives a pretty normal life until her high school rival is found dead in the woods with her brother as the primary suspect. Teaming up with the victim’s sister, an eccentric FBI agent, and the local crime lord–Jane has to solve a case which seems closed before it even began. Jane is an irreverent and wonderful character which people seem to love. It’s very much in the style of my SUPERVILLAINY SAGA books and I hope fans of them will check her out.

I was originally inspired by the classic Twin Peaks story of the murder of Laura Palmer and how everyone in the town was affected. I decided to swerve my own way, though, by creating a town of supernaturals as well as modernizing the characters. Also, unlike David Lynch, I’m perfectly capable of creating a story where the metaphysics makes sense and the plot has a conclusion. Hehe. Just kidding. I love you, David. There’s a bit of Life is Strange and the Dresden Files plus Mercy Thompson too.

Damien Black’s Epic Devil’s Night Dawning

DND _ ebook cover

Devil’s Night Dawning is essentially a supernatural whodunnit that takes place against a backdrop of war, in a high fantasy world of epic proportions with some very dark undertones.

Adelko and Horskram stumble on to something big when they learn a fragment of an ancient artefact has been stolen by a demon from their monastery. They don’t know who is behind it, but Horskram realises that if their mystery warlock succeeds in recovering the other pieces some serious One Ring shit is gonna go down… As they set off to warn the head of their Order in a distant kingdom they are pursued by agents human and supernatural, presumably sent to eliminate them by the very mastermind they are trying to uncover. To make matters more complicated, civil war breaks out in their native kingdom of Northalde, and the two monks become embroiled in this and a series of other misadventures. So there’s a lot going on: war, politics, high adventure, supernatural horror, human ambition, magic, and characters that struggle internally with their own identities and decision-making.

How does your main character fit into this world?

Adelko is a novice monk, indentured the Order of St Argo, a sacred body of monks tasked with apprehending warlocks and fighting demons and other malign spirits that cross over from the Other Side. He has been seconded to Horskram, one of the Order’s foremost exorcists, for on-the-job training in fighting demonkind and sorcerers. But there’s a lot of politics that goes with being an Argolian, as he gets to find out!

Craig Munro’s Epic Books of Dust and Bone

The Bones of the Past Cover Image

The Night Guard walk the streets of the old kingdom of Bialta seeking out threats that are beyond the abilities of the common soldier.

Nial is one such threat―a girl changed into something “other” and on the hunt for human souls.

Salt, a sailor recently rescued by the Night Guard, has been inducted into their ranks. He’s a quick study, but as new threats multiply all around them, will he have what it takes to survive?

Bialta is not alone in its woes. Sacral, a city that vanished in the distant past, has reappeared where it once stood at the heart of the Wastes. Like many of Sacral’s people, Maura is content living a quiet life, ignoring the outside world. But she finds herself desperately fighting to save her home as war comes to the city returned.

Meanwhile, across the Great Desert, creatures are stirring. Carver, the last living master of the magic known as fleshcarving, has won the support of the tyrant of Tolrahk Esal. Together they will unleash his twisted creations to sweep across the land and forever disrupt the balance of power.
