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 trilogy on Amazon, plus an upcoming fourth and final book. 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.”
