Fire & Ice--dark post-apocalyptic fantasy

Fire & Ice

by award-winning author Patty Jansen

Deep under the City of Glass in the frozen southern land, an age-old machine called the Heart of the City radiates a power which locals call icefire. Most citizens are immune to it, but a few, always born with physical disabilities, can bend it to their will. For fifty years, the ruling Eagle Knights, who fly on the back of giant birds, have killed these Imperfects, fearing the return of the old royal family, who used icefire to cut out people's hearts, turning them into ghostly servitors.

The old king's grandson Tandor only sees the good things icefire brought: power and technology now forgotten while the people of the south live in dire poverty. He's had enough of seeing his fellow kinsfolk slaughtered by ignorant Knights, of Imperfect babies being abandoned on the ice floes to be eaten by wild animals. His grandfather's diary tells him how to increase the beat of the Heart the first step to making the land glorious once more. Arrogant as he is, he sets the machine in motion. All he needs is an army of Imperfect servitors to control the resulting power.

Isandor is Imperfect, an ex-Knight apprentice, betrayed by his best friend and running for his life.

The queen Jevaithi is Imperfect, living like a prisoner amidst leering Knights, surviving only because the common people would rebel if their beloved queen were harmed.

Both are young and desperate and should be grateful that Tandor wants to rescue them from their hopeless situations. Or so he thinks. The youngsters, however, have no inclination to become heartless ghosts, but while they defy Tandor, the Heart beats, and he alone cannot control its power.

Hello:

You are allowed to have a separate thread for book 2 - if you desire. However, if you do elect to do this, then you cannot cross-promote.

If you decide NOT to do this (keeping things exactly the way they are right now), then you cannot create a new thread later on.

Again, the decision is yours to make.

Why just at Amazon? A lot of us do not own Kindles, use Amazon apps, or buy from Amazon.

Unfortunately, I didn't see this extension to Smashwords until this morning, so I missed out on the sale at Smashwords.

FWIW, in the future it would be better if you made the change in a separate post so that it shows up as a new post. When you edit a post and that post has already been read by some members, they do not see it because it does show as a new post in the thread. The thread remains marked as everything already read.

I'm writing this at 6:49 a.m. New York time. If the price change was supposed to be for 24 hours, it didn't last that long at Smashwords. I just checked your link and the price is $4.99, even though I would still be within the 24-hour period that supposedly ran from 8:02 a.m. yesterday. Or is that time in a different time zone, one that has already passed?

Anyway, I'm not sure the pricing was available for 24 hours at Smashwords.

rhadin has a point.

Let me help to clarify further:

Every 7 days (or more) you may self-promote. (Less time than that is considered spamming us.) When you are allowed to make a self-promotion, make a post to your thread with the new information. This legitimately brings the thread to the front. You may also (your choice) decide to update the information in the thread's first post, although all this does is give information to a first-time reader of your thread.

Hope this helps.

The trilogy is now finished. You can get the last volume on

Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007T15ADK

Smashwords: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/150607

Other links to follow when Smashwords approved premium status.

Blurb:

Continued from book 2:

Following the destruction of the City of Glass through an explosion of sonorics, huge numbers of refugees have descended upon the Chevakian capital Tiverius.
The refugees are mostly members of the rebel group Brotherhood of the Light, supporters of the old royal family. They are injured, scared and hungry, and few speak Chevakian. The young Queen Jevaithi and her lover Isandor are amongst them, safe from the Eagle Knights for now.
Young Eagle Knight Carro is waiting in an old farmhouse with his fellow Knights for the order to invade the camp, capture the Queen and deliver her back to his father, where she will continue to live as imprisoned puppet for the Knights' tyranny.
The Chevakians know none of this, and struggle to contain the refugee population, and the dangerous sonorics contamination the people have brought from their ravaged country, contamination that defies Chevakian efforts to contain it, and is getting worse, not better.
In their struggle for power, the Brotherhood and the Knights disturbed something from an ancient and magic civilisation.
The sorcerer Tandor knows what happened, but he is on death row in a Chevakian jail.
The southern woman Loriane is aware of the things that are required, but she is amongst Chevakians who can't understand her.
The Chevakian proctor Sadorius han Chevonian could put the pieces of the puzzle together, but he is struggling to keep the peace, and besides, Chevakians don't believe in magic.
Meanwhile, the massive, and malevolent, sonorics cloud drifts towards the city, hungry for revenge.
