About the Book:
First Sentinel has been fighting for fifty years. He has failed his loved ones, buried his friends, and watched his city turned into a playground for five cruel oligarchs. The city, built among the bones of a fifty-mile tall titan, is wracked by magical storms that warp its streets, towers and inhabitants.
First Sentinel and his team finally have a chance to overthrow the oligarchs…but it means making a bargain with his oldest enemy, a gangster who has bought, schemed, and betrayed her way to the top. If they survive the bargain, his team will have the momentum and resources they need for a full-scale revolution. But can First Sentinel tip the balance of power before the oligarchs hunt him down and crush his rebellion for good?
SHIELD & CROCUS is an 97,000 word fantasy novel inspired by Perdido Street Station and Watchmen.
About the Author:
Michael works as an independent publishers' representative. In his free time, he dances Argentine Tango and studies Renaissance martial arts.
With the acquisition of Geekomancy, this project is on the back burner for the forseeble future. I've learned a lot in writing and revising it, and I hope that I'll be able to see it published in some format eventually.
