So this month’s CSFFBT book is “By Darkness Hid”, by author Jill Williamson. It’s part 1 in the “Blood of Kings” series. The book came with only 2 weeks to read it, and my wife had it for most of that time. Since I’m a slow reader I haven’t really had a chance to read far into it, but I have to say I’m hooked already. My wife loved the book.
Book 2 in the Blood of Kings series is called “To Darkness Fled”. Check out a preview here, and pick up a copy here.
That’s all I really have to say at this point. I’m sure there’ll be more to say when I’m done with it.
The publisher is Marcher Lord Press, and Indie Christian Speculative Fiction (sci-fi, fantasy, and the other “out there” stuff) publisher on the rise. It is run by Jeff Gerke, a man with the goal of sharing quality Christian Spec-Fic with the world. Jeff is also associated with a free e-zine called The Cross and the Cosmos, a publication with goals that are similar to those of Marcher Lord Press, although it focuses on short stories instead of novels. I had the pleasure of being a part of the first issue (I know, shameless plug), and all of the issues can be found here.
