Books Robert Recommends
Edwards has proven his diversity by shifting from Sci-Fi to Fantasy and given us another intriguing tale. A finalist in the 2017 Launch Pad competition, the excerpts set the stage for a classic adventure I'm looking forward to reading.
A young lord barely escapes when his house is attacked by the heir to the Empire. With his parents dead, Julien joins with outlaw rebels. He learns of a spirit bound to him, offering power to exact revenge, but it will cost his very soul.
Rule Britannia has the beginnings of a classic Steampunk adventure. It captures the essence of the genre wonderfully and presents us with rich characters I'm already eager to follow.
A female airship Captain and her crew work to prevent a despotic Queen Victoria expanding her empire.
A powerful, chilling opening. In Seicha we find a strong, resourceful, and intelligent protagonist — a girl trying to survive in a harsh, engaging world. I'm looking forward to exploring that world in full when the book comes out.
In a war-torn tribal city inhabited by mystical spirits, a young woman named Seicha is ritually sacrificed to a demon and must navigate the dangers of the Underworld to protect the family she left behind from beyond the grave.
