Time Of Breath Update Text 02

IFWG is excited to announce the release of Paul Mannering’s next instalment of his Drakeforth series: book 3, Time of Breath. “So happy to have this third instalment,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director of IFWG. “Like all of the volumes in the series, we have a wonderful mix of fantasy and whimsy, and Luke Spooner of Carrion House has captured this perfectly in his cover and design work for the book. We know Drakeforth fans will love it!”

Waking up this morning was the last thing Charlotte Pudding expected to do. Now she is with Vole Drakeforth and a mysterious woman on a quest to find the only man who knows what is really going on.

In the desert country of Pathia, where ideas are hard currency, they search for answers and a tree.

It will take more than an ex-wife, a revolution, and the mystery of a famous Arthurian artefact to stop Charlotte from uncovering the ultimate truth.

Time of Breath is available world-wide in ebook and print formats, online and in bricks and mortar stores.

Engines Of Empathy Drakeforth Book 1 draft cover

Charlotte Pudding, computer psychologist and recent orphan, is not precisely thrilled with her lot in life (and not just because of the ‘orphan’ bit).

Nevertheless, having her routine disrupted by a shadowy corporation, a man who claims to be a retired god, and the secrets of her own family history isn’t a walk in the park, either.

Charlotte’s quest for answers will lead her on a perilous journey into a religion based on quantum physics, a hunt for unexpectedly rare plant oil, and a fight to the shame against a black-belt in sarcasm.

In a world that runs on peace and harmony, Charlotte is about to discover just how far some people are prepared to go to maintain tranquillity.

Pisces Of Fate Drakeforth Book 2 draft cover

All is not as it seems in the tranquil waters of the Aardvark Archipelago…

After the death of his parents, Ascott Pudding ran away to the ends of the Earth–that is, to the Aardvark Archipelago, which is basically the same thing. But these tropical waters hold more than just fish, and Ascott soon finds himself in the grip of an ancient mystery…and an extremely violent invertebrate.

With the help of his best friend, Shoal, and an artistically temperamental parrot, Ascott will face down a homicidal octopus, an extreme whale-based sporting event, and several varieties of pirate. Above all, though, they must unravel the ancient mystery of a treasure beyond imagining: the Pisces of Fate.

Contains a bonus short Drakeforth short story, Uncertainty of Goats.
