    Description / Extracts:

    The Remus Rothwyn Chronicles is a dark fantasy series with magick and fantastical elements, but with a focus on realism and morally grey characters and factions. The world has its own unique mix of tech steampunk and dark mythological elements, all blended into an epic fantasy tale with classically inspired battle scenes.

    Book 1: Steel, Magick and Faith

    In the ancient and wild world of Glenryth, Fey creatures and a nascent humanity have come into conflict, the motives of each other mutually unfathomable and alien. Technological cults and Monotheistic religions are worshipped, any suspicion of pagan or Fey magickal taint is reviled. Prophets spread far and wide, offering hope and comfort to the beleaguered masses. Mankind is not totally separate from the energies that suffuse Glenryth, as an unfortunate few are born as Touched.

    When local dwarves put a curse upon the town of High Peaks, Remus, the aloof and irritable woodcutter and sage, must try and ebb the tide of xenophobic anger that could engulf himself and any other folk that are labelled as outcasts. But when a caravan of technocrat pilgrims fails to arrive, and the body of a local child is found in the woodlands, Remus, along with the capricious Touched Elaina, must try to understand the nature of morality in a world cloaked in suspicion and fear, and, ultimately, to prevent a brewing war that could send the region spiraling into chaos and destruction.

    Extracts:

    'Then somewhere in the fickle mists of creation came humanity, clawing and afraid, grasping and ambitious. Enveloped in a dangerous world, these creatures lived as scavengers; afraid of the greater things of the world. They were beset by disease, lack of claws or fangs, and the lack of habitat to call their own. These fleshy, naked beings were doomed to die of attrition... Ancient forces began to pay attention to the growing incursion, plaguing them, slaying stragglers at night. But still the humans held on to the edge of the precipice, knuckles white with effort'

    'Around its face were three plates of natural chitin, one on its forehead, and two on its cheeks, flexing around its massive jaw. Remus swung his hand-axe just in time to deflect a savage bite, smashing against the monster's large teeth. The Feybeast had gotten close enough that Remus could smell the fetid breath of its salivating jaw and see its yellowing fangs'

    'He could not deny the nobility he saw in many different people, bits and pieces of nobility that shined through under pressure. The guards who risked their lives to protect the villagers, Markham who flew at the dangerous dwarf, swords flashing; even an Eruthian merchant who stopped in his journey to share tales with complete strangers'



    The sequel, 'The Shard of Palrinah', is on the way, and a preview from it is available from my author site, and at the end of the first book.

    Reviews-



    -'The story line was good, the characters were honorable, vindictive, evil, mysterious, stubborn, magical, everything that heroes and villains should be'

    -'If you're a fantasy fan and enjoy a touch of realism in your stories then you will enjoy this book'

    -'Anyone who likes a good tale similar to that of Lord of the Rings will love this tale full of steel, magick, and faith', 'I know there is more to come in the world that TP Grish has created and I for one am looking forward to seeing what happens next'

    Remus and Elaina live a stable life in High Peaks, although they are subjected to constant ostracization because they were different: Remus for his choices, and Elaina for the powers she did not choose to be born with.

    The dwarves of the region, bizarre, dark and seemingly malevolent Fey, are furious that the humans are spreading so fast, taking over the land and violating the ancient pacts. Attacks on pilgrims, and curses, are the result.When an escaped horror results in the death of a young townsboy, war between the humans of High Peaks, backed by righteous fury and angry ignorance, and the dwarves, seem nigh.

    The Church of St. Lusian, the dominant faction in the town, organizes the war and bolsters the human's resolve. The dwarves are rearing for a long-coming fight, and are willing to bring their raw power to bear, and perhaps to call darker Fey allies to the cause.

    Remus, Elaina, and a traveling bard, Perfidian, are all too aware of the massive devastation a war between Man and Fey could cause, and seek to stop the escalation of a war that could devastate the region.
