    First Civilization's Legacy Series (Fantasy)

    Discussion in 'Success Stories' started by TWErvin2, Mar 7, 2015.

    Those of you who've crossed paths with me probably know about this series, but I figured I'd post about it here in the Success Stories section.

    The First Civilization's Legacy Series is post-apocalyptic fantasy filled with action and adventure. It focuses on Krish, a farmhand turned mercenary.

    Above are the covers of the first three novels. Each is written as a standalone novel, so a reader can begin with any of the three books, enjoy it and then read the others if they so choose.

    Rather than fill this post with descriptions, I'll provide links below to my website where there are more details concerning each novel, and to a page providing links to where they're available (ebook, print, and audio).

    The first novel, Flank Hawk, is also available in Spanish. I'll follow with a post about that in a few days.

    In case anyone wants a reader's opinion, I've read the first two books, and they're great. :agreed:

    A.M.P.,
    I think the reviewer was referring to how I was able to weave past events into the current narrative, and not detract but enhance the story while doing so. I'm glad he saw it working. Before I began writing Blood Sword (the sequel to Flank Hawk--of which Soul Forge is the third book in the series), I took about 6 months studying how other series authors successfully wrote their novels so that they could stand alone, and that a reader could pick up and start with any book in the series and enjoy it (and not be lost) and could then go back and enjoy any other book in the series in any order.

    It's tricky, with a lot of consideration and balance, but not impossible to do. Even so, I find that most readers prefer to start with book #1 anyway. :)

    Kiem Hoang,

    Thank you. The artist (Christine Griffin) did a wonderful job. If you decide to give my novels a try, don't hesitate to share your thoughts.
