New Release: Six Celestial Swords




Celestial Empire Book One

Inspired by the rising chaos in Sheng Fan, Xu Liang, mystic and officer of the Imperial Court, leaves his homeland for the barbarian outer lands in search of four magical blades to unite with two sacred weapons already in the possession of the Empire. His plan is to bring all of the blades together and return them to Sheng Fan's Empress as a symbol of unity that will bolster the people’s faith in the Imperial family and assist against the surge of dark forces.  Complicating his plan is not the finding of the blades, but finding them with bearers; foreigners who have no intention of parting with them and less intention of serving an Empire they’ve scarcely heard of.  It becomes Xu Liang’s task to ally himself with these barbarians of the outer realms and unite them with his cause, as well as with one another.  Only the complete reunion of all six blades and their fated bearers can stand against chaos, rising like a dragon from slumber beneath the foundation of a nation unprepared.

Available Now ~ Five Kingdoms (Celestial Empire Book 2)

With the Celestial Swords and their bearers united, Xu Liang heads for his homeland.  Having lost his spiritual connection with the Empress, he is unprepared for the severity of Chaos’ grip on the land and its people.  Fear is spreading throughout Sheng Fan.  War is in the air.  There is dissension in the ranks of the Empire and Xu Liang’s favor with the Empress seems to be in question, his once influential position now tenuous.  The coming together of the Blades seems for naught while enemies from within threaten to tear apart his allegiance with the outsiders he dared to bring into Sheng Fan by spreading dangerous rumors.  It seems that Xu Liang can do little more than watch as the Dragon continues to rise, every hour clawing its way deeper into the heart of the Empire, which slowly rends itself apart with the governors of the Five Kingdoms taking up arms against each other, as well as against the Song Dynasty.  Those allied by the Swords must put Chaos to rest—be it an actual drago…

New Logo

A lot of redesigning and relaunching is happening at Raventide Books, as we enter into our fifth year of publishing. It was time for an emblem that encapsulated the bright and dark of what I write, or more specifically, the brightly dark dreamscapes that I visit, via entities of equally mottled emotions and psyches. Of course, the raven had to be included, and now, finally, the unicorn(a symbol of tremendous emotional and spiritual significance for me) has been incorporated.

Look for the new design on all Raventide books, including the forthcoming relaunch of the Blood Wars Trilogy, the ongoing Dryth Chronicles, and all else under the Raventide banner.
