A dark fantasy, hardcore action novel…
After intercepting a convoy containing crucial intelligence and decrypting the data, the Kionic Pirates now know their time of plundering the seas may come to an end. An alliance has been formed between the various factions they prey on. With little time to spare the Kionic Pirates begin their own defensive preparations which include sending out various special forces teams to perform recon and sabotage missions.
An area of the world that has not seen major conflict is about to erupt. Run by powerful politicians, kings, warriors, spherists, assassins and underground networks, chances for personal gain are rife. Spherists, people who are able to draw upon and control the energy of ethereal realms, are utilized in everything from encrypting information, communicating long distance, spying and contract killing.
Everything is about to go down and the Kionics are right in the middle of it.
One Kionic spec ops team, lead by Exphasia, a spherist, is sent to the city where she grew up. Followed by her brother Merritt and her hard-headed friend, Rezen, they soon learn that there is far more going on than initially perceived. Aided by an assassin, who partly shares in the Kionic’s own goals, they must recover as much intel as possible and destroy what they can before the Alliance fleet leaves dock.
And there’s something else…
Communication and other spherical activities are being scrambled and hampered by an unknown storm brewing over the mountains to the east. Something is wrong.
And Rezen’s nightmares are getting worse…
Q & A:
The best thing about writing this book?
It gave me a chance to bring my vision to life in a way I was unable to do with film. A project like this was beyond my small crews’ ability and our bank accounts.
Where did you get your idea for this story?
I got tired of fantasy books being predictable and boring. I wanted to see realism mixed in with the fantasy genre in way that rarely happens. So my ideas came from my hatred of the fantasy genre
What would you tell aspiring writers out there?
Just write. Make your idea into an actual piece of work you can be proud of and show people. It’s easy to say you have an idea, but much more interesting to have a finished piece of work to show off.
I want to thank Sean Kinsley for allowing me to promote his book on my blog. I hope this post has inspired you to go out and read Wicked Tides!
