Lord of Darkness and Shadow - My new Book

Postby shadowbooks » Wed Feb 22, 2006 1:18 pm

Hey everyone

Great news (for me!) - my book is now available to buy! Have been waiting for it to be released for ages and at least the wait is over!! If any one is interested here's the description:

Lord of Darkness and Shadow by Darren Reid is the first in a new series of novels that crossover and combine the best elements of fantasy and science fiction. A twisted mix of dark and high fantasy, science fiction and simple human drama, Lord of Darkness and Shadow takes its readers from the depths of space to a ruined and nightmarish world in which the forces of the dark rule and are beginning to amass, manipulating the world of light into an era of shadow.

Lord of Darkness and Shadow in the first part in the Chronicles of the Shadow, an epic fantasy/science fiction series that is set to traverse numerous novels and centuries of humanities future-history.


If anyone checks it out, let me know what you think; there is also a short story on my website as well as a weekly Blog story thati update whenever i can :)

All the best,

Darren

Awww thanks so much - you guys are the friendliest web-based community out there!!!

If you did enjoy the storyon the website you may (or many not) be interested to know i have started a weekly novella serial called "The Half Broken Crown" as a way to promote my book - basically I have a very very vague idea for a fantasy story and every week I sit down and write about 1000 words and put it on my blog - the idea being that both me and the reader discover and are surprised by the story as it develops. The response to the first part has been good so far so enjoy, it is available on my website as of today :)
