Of War and Consequence, Book One of the Consortium Chain

Postby HMart » Mon Apr 16, 2012 12:14 pm

Hello Speculative Vision! Name's Harrington,

Room for some Science Fantasy?

---Of War and Consequence was just announced as the N.A.B.E. Pinnacle Award Winner for Best In The Category Of Science Fantasy---


Experience the gripping world of Xarh in this first installment of the Consortium Chain trilogy. The Banthyk Union and Kingdom of Sarkrea are revealed as war tears at the foundation of half the planet. Prepare yourself accordingly; a wild ride awaits.

"the prose is even pungent and pithy"

"the feuding warriors engage in plenty of action-packed battles"

"Intriguing storylines, creatures and weapons"

-Kirkus Indie Reviews


"Medieval-era parallel universe full of airships, tunnels, mystical minerals, warriors with

regenerating body parts, and endless wars fought across the churning waters of the Sea of

Regrett."

"the story is good, the characters fairly interesting, and the setting both unique and colorful."

"confusion over whether the good guys are all that good is fueled by their actions

after a battle when, as Martin explains, “Revelers picked up appendages that lay around the

gates, and children gathered hunks of flesh; these were all standard practices for the embattled

people of Banthyk.”"


"Martin has set the

stage for further events to unfold"

-ForeWord Clarion Review

Also, for the curiously inclined, the Empren Bazaar houses my madness, ramblings, and the beginnings of future's blessing. Three sample chapters are also available.

Kindle: http://www.amazon.com/Of-War-Consequenc ... 515&sr=1-2

I look forward to integrating with what looks to be a thriving community.

Review from J Adair on Amazon:

"4.0 out of 5 stars Sci Fi Space Opera, May 7, 2012

This review is from: Of War and Consequence: The Consortium Chain, Book One (Volume 1) (Paperback)

If you're a Sci Fi fan you'll love this book; if you're not, you may be converted. Author Harrington Martin has a way with words that unfolds rich imagery with every page turned. "Of War & Consequence" introduces fantastic characters in a layered storyline that surprises and satisfies. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for Book Two in the chain."

Much thanks, J.

Another solid review. Five stars on my Amazon paperback page,

"The Consortium Chain is a secretive alliance that is only part of an exciting thrill-ride through the lands of Banthyk and Ornateam. The lands and people are vividly described. The action and intrigue kept me turning the pages to find out what would happen next. I want to read Book Two as soon as it comes out." - J Allen

Book Two approaches! I'm getting some great feedback from initial reads.

It's a long slog, but it'll get there.
