Crisis Among Rebel Leaders in Audiobook Excerpt from The Goddess Queen
One great way to add tension in the middle of an epic fantasy is to have leaders squabble at a crucial point in a war. Internal strife is the worst enemy of all.
In this excerpt from The Goddess Queen audiobook, the powerful rys Shan who is leading the rebellion against the Goddess Onja enters into a bitter dispute with his closest friend and ally King Taischek.
It's been many years since I wrote this novel, but I still feel the power in Chapter 14 from The Goddess Queen. This was the moment when things went from bad to worse. And trust me, overthrowing a powerful rys queen who has ruled for over two thousand years is difficult to begin with.
So far I've produced two novels of The Rys Chronicles as audiobooks. Union of Renegades and The Goddess Queen are available worldwide from Brave Luck Books, Audible, and iTunes. Ebooks and paperbacks also available.
About The Rys Chronicles:
Grandiose ambitions and desperation drive this fantasy epic of colliding civilizations. The Rys Chronicles is a fantasy quartet spanning seven years and revealing the tragedies, challenges, and triumphs of a diverse cast of characters.
Packed with personal duels, epic battles, magic, romance, and the corrupting influence of great power, this fantasy series introduces the rys, a rare super race whose most powerful members can kill across great distances, read minds, influence actions, and even enslave the souls of the dead.
Follow the journey of Shan, a good-hearted rys whose struggle against evil begins to warp his morality. Victories only bring greater challenges when hidden enemies seek vengeance for an ancient genocide and rise to punish the
rys for their ancestors' crimes.
