Binge-Worthy Reads: The Dragonspeaker Chronicles

The Bastard Prince

Dragonspeaker Chronicles 1

She has a dragon, and she’s not afraid to use it.

Nellie Dreessen is a kitchen maid in the palace of Regent Bernard of Saardam. She has worked for two kings and two regents, has seen two royal families murdered through magic, has seen ghosts and demons, and kept her head down like a good girl.

On her fiftieth birthday, she receives her late father’s diary, which describes a magical item that is so evil, it needs to be kept in the church crypt: a box that contains dragon.

Problem is, someone has stolen the box.

Regent Bernard holds a banquet for his eldest son’s sixteenth birthday. Distinguished guests come from far and wide. Because she knows what the box looks like, Nellie discovers it in a nobleman’s luggage.

Removing the box from a thief’s room is not stealing, right? Not if you intend to return it to the rightful owner: the church.

But someone poisons the nobleman, and everyone in the kitchen is a suspect. Nellie’s friend in the church advises Nellie to flee with the dragon box. The Regent is on a mission to stamp out magic, and Nellie plans to do what she does best: keep her head down and hide.

Problem is, the dragon has other ideas.

The Wizard Priest

Dragonspeaker Chronicles 2

A young prince, an evil wizard, and a city that no longer seems to care.

Cast out from the palace, Nellie survives in the streets of Saardam with the poor and destitute and a dragon whose behaviour she can’t control, but is the key to finding the last member of the royal family.

The pompous Regent is hell-bent on finding the person who has killed his court advisor and he has decided the dragon is guilty. If he doesn’t find a culprit, his main source of money is at stake. The guards comb the city. It’s only a matter of time before they find Nellie.

A terrible mishap caused by the dragon puts Nellie’s friend and a number of other innocent people in prison. Nellie can no longer run and hide.

She concocts the most daring escape plan ever, but in gathering help to carry it out, she makes discoveries that may change the future of the city.

The Dragon King

Dragonspeaker Chronicles 3

Take an adolescent boy. Make him angry. Add dragons.

Saving Prince Bruno from the church crypts hasn’t turned out the way Nellie had planned. The boy is morose, angry, hellbent on revenge, and incapable of wielding the power he has been given. But the group of refugees who have fled from the city have bigger concerns. It’s winter, they need to survive, and find a safe place to recover and plan their next move.

But the boy does something stupid. Through the prince’s single impatient action, they don’t have the time to recover anymore. The wizard knows where he is, he has the whole city eating out of his hands, and Nellie has to come up with a plan to defeat him, because the only other option is death.

New Paperbacks and Old Paperback Issues

Ba Dum Tshh!

Frivolous Fox Diligent Dog is now available on paperback.

Sorry about that.

Binge-Worthy Reads: Drakon

I met Mr. Caskabel yesterday. He’s like me, working on both the Greek and English markets (USA). He’s also helping out budding authors in Athens, running a printing press, so many things.

This is his book series, Drakon. It has been praised by everyone I know, so check it out. It is bloody, dirty, sexy, powerful. If you liked Game of Thrones, you’ll like this too. If you are squeamish, hoo boy, click away now.

There’s a 4 book series on Amazon. That should be enough for you to binge on.

What they said about Drakon:

“A quick-paced, exhilarating story that, after only the first volume, is already epic.” — Kirkus Reviews


“If you like dark fantasy, this is a fantastic installment.”


“Fast-paced and full of action, but it is the first-person narrative that makes it so powerful.”


“No magic or strange creatures, just people brainwashed by powerful stories full of symbolism and dark beauty.”


“The first in a new high fantasy series, Caskabel introduces us to his protagonist (Da-Ren) through the grueling and cruel coming of age gauntlet called The Sieve that will lead him to find his place in the culture. Caskabel has built an elaborate mythology and religion that he skilfully weaves into his story as we watch Da-Ren survive.”


“This book took me to a place that was dark, mysterious and new.”


“A haunting, captivating book that immerses you in its lyricism only to drown you in its barbarism a couple of pages later.”


“The Hunger Games and Maze Runner meets Genghis Khan.”


“DRAKON travels you to a magic world of bravery, treachery, and love. The book does not just create a new universe of characters and norms: it also takes you there.”

The 3rd ΦantastiCon Event in Athens Was Memorable And Full of Zombies

Athens is becoming an important stop in the worldwide fantasy event circuit. This year, we had guest visitor Kate Madison, who’s made an indie series called “Ren – The Girl With the Mark.

The cosplay competition was extremely fun and very popular. Here are some indicative pics, for the whole gallery from CosplayersGR click here.

And we had the author Ioanna Bourazopoulou, who has been translated in English and won awards for her novel “What Lot’s Wife Saw.” Here’s where you can get copies on Amazon US and UK:

There were plenty of other stuff, mostly in Greek of course. Check out the convention’s English page here and contact them in case you want to take part next year. The visitors gobble up English content like there’s no tomorrow, stuff like Saga comic volumes, memorabilia, Chibi figures and whatever sort of loot you might peddle.

To end this article, here’s Sci-fi author Judith Blish getting eaten by a zombie. Um, guys, maybe we should be taking better care of legendary writers, especially now that Star Trek is cool again? Guys? Anybody left alive?

Dystopian Does Not Mean Post-Apocalyptic

Yeah, I noticed the trend and it bugs me a little. No, people, dystopian doesn’t mean post-apocalyptic. Post-ap is something after a major catastrophe, dystopian means Orwellian surveillance nightmare. You know, kinda like the God Complex Universe.

unnamed-1

Sometimes the two genres overlap like in the Hunger Games, but one does not necessarily mean the other. Anyway, here are some grim and post-apocalyptic books for you to choose from.

  • Science Fiction
  • Space Opera
  • Dystopian
  • Fantasy
  • Horror

You’ll find all that, and most importantly, you’ll find it across all major retailers. Yeah, we’ve made it the norm.

  • Amazon
  • Kobo
  • iTunes
  • Nook
  • Smashwords
  • Google Play Books

Any shop you prefer, we’re on it. First weekend of November only, 5-6 Nov. Get ready cause it’s closing in fast.
