When Maia returns home to Elveron from her final test on Earth, something unexpected happens and she ends up in a coma. When she finally wakes, she realises that she has brought with her the very thing she tried to leave behind.

Faced with responsibilities she thinks she is not ready for, a love she does not reciprocate and a threat to her people that might kill them all, she is suddenly forced to become what she is meant to be – a Prime.

But she is not alone. She has her mentor, Silas, and her dragon, Midnight, who stand by her side as she embarks on an adventure to save not just herself, but the rest of the nation of Grildor as well.

“Cox has created characters; a world; a story that is Tolkien worthy. She has developed something unique and rich in imagination.” Sian B. Claven (TBB)

“Maia is an incredible character to follow. Toni Cox has managed to bring something new, exciting, and seriously addictive to the fore.” Robyn Victoria Castles (TBB)

The Plight of a People: Volume I

by J. W. Barlament

Cover The Plight of a People by J W Barlament

Know More

Here is an epic of countless centuries and bloody conflicts that rage through an ancient world of gods and beasts.

Split into three separate stories, each focusing on one man doing his best to fight through the many plights of the Roesanian people, this debut novel is a literary fantasy epic filled with the tales of three great wars. The veteran commander Solinus fights against a great horde of religious zealots to secure his position in a new land in Part I. In Part II, Emperor Aethon fights to keep both his power and his empire secured from the greedy hands of invaders and opportunists alike. Lastly, in Part III, the young King Eulasus begins a rebellion against a tyrannical regime to secure the freedom of the Roesanians once and for all. All three parts tell their own stories, but each one is deeply intertwined with the others to form one overall novel about the desperate struggle of one people to survive despite a myriad of tragedies being hurled at them.



A Word from the Author

Author J. W. Barlament

 

No matter the time period in which they existed, the governments of the world have always been raised by those filled with ambition and taken ahold of by those filled with greed. To display the full extent of this and the relationship between the ruler and the ruled in ancient times, I have written this novel. It serves not only as my contribution of entertainment to the literary world, but also as the first of five books to examine the very nature of the institutions that rule over us all. It is but my view on the greatest and most pervasive of all human problems, and likely the greatest tragedy of our societies’ existence.

A Word from the Author

Author Michael D. Nadeau picture_The Darkness Returns is my first foray into the literary world and it’s a little scary finally doing this . I’ve been reading fantasy/science fiction books and playing Roleplaying games for over thirty years and finally wanted to do something that combined the things I love. Writing and creating worlds/characters. I started in 2011 and got about halfway through when I had to stop to work a second job. We lost the house anyway and had to move in with the in-laws and it wasn’t until 2016 that I started writing again. I created the characters from different aspects of characters I have played over the years and wanted the book to be different than most common fantasy books. I decided on describing the antagonist first, with detail as he wasn’t just a shadow of evil, he was there, real and deadly so the readers know what’s coming before most of the heroes in the book do. I also cut out a lot of the travel descriptions. In the hundreds of books I’ve read over the years I’ve seen tons of description needlessly dragging on (three pages to detail the door they are looking at or the road they traveled on for days) So while it is descriptive, I also cut to other scenes when the heroes (or villains) aren’t really doing anything you need to know about. If something needs mentioning, I can bring it up later in conversation. I have only sold 19 books (and 1 ebook) since June but of the people that have finished it, I have only positive reviews. (including 1 on amazon and two on my facebook page for the book) The only fault is that I couldn’t afford an editor so the punctuation is off here and there. The style I have is different, switching POV with each character so that the reader gets a full gambit of how each character is seeing things or feeling about what is going on, and the whole story is blended with rich sarcasm and antics. I am currently writing book 2 (35k words so far) and have plans for the third book, plus another trilogy set before this series as well as more books set after these books.
