Sneak Preview: Intimations of Evil by Cary J. Lenehan

In less than a week we will be releasing a new title, Intimations of Evil, by Cary J.

From every direction nine individuals of varied races and walks of life are drawn to the village of Evilhalt on the shores of Lake Erave. A foundling, a princess; a huntress and secret policeman; a shepherd and a huntress; a tribesman and a Battle Mage.; a Ghazi…

As they journey each faces trials beyond those of normal travellers. On arrival they meet a local leatherworker and militiaman, Stefan, who just wants more of life than what seems to be offered to him. They uncover deep, dark mysteries which hints of greater evil. Together, and for a mix of reasons, they set off to face their destiny.

Intimations of Evil is the first book of a series that sees worlds reshaped and myths confounded in a far-flung fantasy adventure.

A boy. A weird tattoo. A silver necklace showing four elements: ‘Earth. Air. Fire. Water.’

When Brave woke up that first, life-changing day, he had no idea that pretty soon he’d be controlling the weather, talking to royalty and journeying to another world. Let alone riding a camel. Life in the mysterious world of Arvalonia, where magic springs from the nature around you, couldn’t be more different to his ordinary existence back home. Especially when he meets True…bossy, rich, driven teenager True who’s out to make his life a misery.

Brave and True venture deep into enemy territory; facing a month without a bath, nipping stinkbuggies, evil ruler Mallevia’s ruthless green guards and eventually a battle with the vile queen herself.

Discover a place where the nature of power is within the power of nature.

Escape the ordinary.
