JULY 12TH–THE WELCOMING
JULY 18TH–THE ENCORE
While preparing for the birth of his first child, Chrys Valerian is tasked with uncovering the group responsible for a series of missing threadweavers—those able to see and manipulate threadlight. With each failure, the dark voice in his head that began during the war grows louder, begging to be released.
Laurel lives in Zedalum, a secret city in the center of the Fairenwild. During her most recent messenger run, Laurel veered off course to explore the streets of Alchea. She never expected that her journey would end in chains.
When Chrys learns who is responsible for the missing threadweavers, they come for him and his family. He must do everything in his power to protect those he loves, even if it means trusting a strange girl or the dark voice in his mind.
Voice of War gives a unique look into the mind of an expecting father (a point-of-view not often traversed in epic fantasy!) who wrestles with a dark secret, and the mysterious future of his child. Easily relatable, Chrys experiences a lot of inner-turmoil with inadequacies, and is quite hard on himself because of a strong desire to not fail. He is also the Apogee, the man with unexpected powers that won the war at the expense of many.
In a world where eye color is closely linked to threadweaving, each expecting parent hopes for the sign that their child will be born with the ability to see and use threadlight. Being a threadweaver himself, Chrys Valerian has the unique ability to utilize the magic known as threadlight. He is assigned to uncover a group of people stealing powers from fellow threadweavers. But his conscious is split between his duty and the upcoming responsibility and apprehension that comes with parenting.
Filled with an enthralling magic system, great world-building, and realistic and relatable characters due to their situations, Voice of War is a great start to a new epic fantasy trilogy!
Pin it for later!
Zack Argyle was raised with a wonderful family motto: don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story. What better way than to write fiction? He spends his days writing code and his nights writing epic stories about family, love, loss, friendship, and pain all intermixed with a heavy dose of the fantastical.
