M. R. Mathias is proud to present his next fantasy series: The Legend of Vanx Malic. Book One of this fantasy serial – Through the Wildwood, has just been released and the reviews are coming in. Book Two will be available before Christmas 2012. The cover art for these titles is custom created, and by the look of the first one, these books will be well received.
Through the Wildwood
A half-zythian bard named Vanx is in chains for bedding the Duchess of Highlake. The Duke wants him dead, but his wife secretly sent their daughter to buy his freedom from the slave markets. This is bad news, for bad things can happen to an ill-guarded caravan in the mountains. When the Duke's mercenaries attack to kill the adulterous prisoner all hell breaks loose. Now, the only way Vanx and the Princess of Highlake can escape the Duke and his men is if they can somehow make it through the Wildwood, a place that no one has ever returned from before.....
In Mathias’ words:
“After I finished writing The Wardstone Trilogy, I still had several months to go before I would be released from prison. I did not want to lapse in my religious routine of penning three thousand words a day, so I didn’t. Book One – Through the Wildwood is a fun and intense book that introduces a few of the series’ main characters. I have over a thousand pages worth of Vanx Malic and his curious group of companions sitting here in longhand. I will be publishing them in eBook format, about two hundred fifty pages at a time, over the next year and a half.”
This is an entertaining, fast-paced, and thrilling fantasy book. Vanx is a character that really draws you in. I love books that make me excited and that make me think. The author has a special ability to create a world that seems almost real. Once you get into this book you will not want to stop reading!! Amazon Review
I felt like I was in a whole new world reading this book and I could imagine the creatures that were described in such great detail. The storyline was also amazing. I would recommend anyone who loves fantasy books to read this book as you will definitely be swept into this world! Avid Reader Reviews
