A Few Things About Warrior's Fury

I am currently waiting on the second proof for Warrior's Fury, so I still don't have a specific release date, but I thought I'd go ahead and give a more expansive outline of the story than the synopsis covers. . .

And let you see the improvements that have been made to the cover ;)

Warrior's Fury is a story that takes place on a planet called Arn. Residing in the Realm of Ivarun, Arn is roughly the size Saturn and has a similar ring - referred to by the inhabitants as the Baershksh Wall.

The story revolves around a forty-two year old Nanhew warrior/mercenary, Rimmegoan Dayor, and the older Nanhew who hires him as a bodyguard, Harin Oudek. We follow the unlikely pair and a number of other characters (among them Harin's daughter, Elsira, and the captain of the ship they travel aboard, Zeegan) as they sail from the enormous city of Khohodym, to a small island in the Pefrayo Archipelago, to a previously unknown island with a colossal mesa making up its southern half. (In the beginning of the book we see Harin obtain a mysterious artifact that turns out to be a Nayrldosh map that leads them to the island)

After enduring months at sea, surviving an attack by marauders and barely making it through a fierce storm, the group is then drawn into a struggle against an evil horde of crazed monsters and their overlord atop the Great Pillar.

The title of the book refers to Rim's propensity to anger, hatred, and violence, and throughout the course of the story we learn a little about his tragic past and watch as his interactions with Harin, Elsira, and the other characters begin to pull Rim out of the mire of bitterness that oppresses him. . . . I don't spend a lot of time on that aspect of the story, but it does play a part in the 'character development' side of the book.

Obviously, as you can tell from the first two paragraphs above, the story is set in a completely different world (or 'Realm' - as I refer to them) and so the book could definitely be included in the genre of 'epic fantasy' . . . but I think the overall story would be better classified as a 'fantasy adventure' since the novel is technically a standalone (hint-hint for anyone who prefers to follow a character for longer than one book ;)

Hmm . . . . Well, if you would like to read more about Warrior's Fury, please leave a comment and tell me what you'd like to know! :)
