Tolkien meets Miyazaki in a new breed of epic fantasy, where elemental warriors clash with immortal wizards and ancient gods.
The Landkist Saga has long been compared to Princess Mononoke in tone and aesthetic and a more violent version of Avatar: The Last Airbender in terms of action. It follows a group of elemental warriors in the midst of the War of Sages, focusing in particular on the last Embers, flame-wielding warriors fighting to defend their people against the coming of the World Apart.
There are glowing Everwood blades, mind-controlled bears, wolf companions, a storm dragon made of clouds, primordial forests, arid deserts, frozen wastes, anime-style duels and continent-shattering events.
Suffice to say, like most epic fantasies exceeding 1 million words, there’s more to it than that.
The plan is to finish the core narrative in seven novels, with an eventual prequel and sequel series possible depending on reader interest.
(The Landkist Saga: Books 1-5 were originally published from 2016 – 2020. After signing with Monolith Books in 2020, The Landkist Saga went into hibernation in order to allow for the production of Monolith’s new and improved editions, including audiobook production. Landkist returned better than ever in 2021.)
