I recently added novel pages to my website, with some fun tid-bits for FALLS OF REDEMPTION.
For a map and a sneak at the draft of my upcoming novel (the full first book in the Land of Gods trilogy), see below or visit the site for yourself.
In a world where men believe they can become gods, Narcel searches for his missing brother while trying not to let the girl of his dreams slip away to his older cousin. Evidence for his brother’s disappearance points to the rival warrior clan, the Mawtu, a viscous group of warriors… which could mean only one thing: war on the horizon.
Thank you for visiting the website for my writing and Falls of Redemption. This is book 1 in theLand of Gods trilogy, though I started it off by publishing it in 6 parts as “episodes.” The complete book will arrive in 2015, with a revised cover and edit. In the meantime, check the site for updates.
“As the author, Justin Sloan, notes at the end of part one of this series, he took inspiration for his tale from the Peloponnesian War between Greek and Sparta. Although set in a fictional world, you immediately get the sense of that ancient conflict right from the beginning of Falls of Redemption. The story centers mainly on three characters: the boys Narcel and Lokum, who are cousins; and the girl, Kaire, whom they are attracted to. Vivid world-building and exciting battles as the boys learn to become warriors! A great coming-of-age story that will leave the reader in suspense and yearning to dive into the next chapter of the series!”
