Thanks for taking time to review this for me!
Sure, hiding a secret, gay boyfriend may seem hard enough. Sure, hiding the fact that you can shoot lightning from your fingertips may prove even more difficult. But imagine trying to keep both secrets exclusively hidden amidst a war where mythical beasts have already wiped out half of human existence.
Over a decade after losing his father and sister to a fateful attack on his once-glorious city, nineteen-year-old Anik is juggling his life as a simple blacksmith with the many secrets he’s kept hidden for all these years. Jhanai, one of the last three remaining human cities, is the place that Anik now calls home. And with the threat of the beastly Consortium Army looming in the distance, there’s no telling how long the city will stand. When a goblin ambush threatens Naias, the man he loves, Anik is forced to reveal his abilities in order to save them, exposing himself for the “monster” that he really is.
Forced to flee from what little is left of civilization, Anik arrives in Durem, a strange, fabled town filled with people who possess talents just as amazing as his own. However, when news arrives that the dark cloud of The Consortium is moving on Jhanai, Anik and his newfound friends must decide whether they will stay hidden in Durem or do what they can to save those that he loves. Fighting a losing battle will bring certain death, but Anik is willing to risk it all.
I’m seeking representation for my fantasy novel, STORMBRINGER: BIRTH, which is complete at 148,000 words. STORMBRINGER: BIRTH is a standalone with series potential. This title may appeal to those who enjoy The Inheritance Cycle, The Red Queen Series or The Stormlight Archives. Though I’ve never shot lightning from my hands, I can identify with the characters of color as well as the LGBT+ themes presented within the novel.
Thank you for for consideration.
