Hello! Welcome to the latest post on the blog, Westu Hal to you. I have something super exciting today, I am taking part in another Write Reads Ultimate Tour and today I am spotlighting “The Lore of Prometheus” by Graham Austin-King.
I chose to spotlight this because I simply do not have time to read it at the moment, it is however very much on my TBR and I am looking forward to it. Graham is a brilliant author, one whose work is something I really enjoy and value.
I did mention that this is part of The Write Reads Ultimate blog tour, so thanks once again to Dave, Elliem Jen and the gang for having the blog take part. Now believe it or not this is the first spotlight post that I have ever done on the blog, it’s tough to know what to do sometimes but you know I love talking about books and Graham’s are some of the better ones that I have read. Let me know if you have read anything by Graham, it would be great to talk about the books and anything else really.
Anyway you are probably wondering what The Lore of Prometheus is all about well, well here you are..
John Carver has three rules: Don’t drink in the daytime, don’t gamble when the luck has gone, and don’t talk to the dead people who come to visit.
It has been almost five years since the incident in Kabul. Since the magic stirred within him and the stories began. Fleeing the army, running from the whispers, the guilt, and the fear he was losing his mind, Carver fell into addiction, dragging himself through life one day at a time.
Desperation has pulled him back to Afghanistan, back to the heat, the dust, and the truth he worked so hard to avoid. But there are others, obsessed with power and forbidden magics, who will stop at nothing to learn the truth of his gifts. Abducted and chained, Carver must break more than his own rules if he is to harness this power and survive
Sounds cool right? As I mentioned this is one on my TBR and I hope my post has maybe directed you in Graham’s direction to try out. Here is some further info about Graham
Graham Austin-King was born in the south of England and weaned on broken swords and half-forgotten spells.
A shortage of these forced him to consume fantasy novels at an ever-increasing rate, turning to computers and tabletop gaming between meals.
He experimented with writing at the beginning of an education that meandered through journalism, international relations, and law. To this day he is committed to never allowing those first efforts to reach public eyes.
After spending a decade in Canada learning what ‘cold’ really means, and being horrified by poutine, he settled once again in the UK with a seemingly endless horde of children.
To date he is the author of five novels, drawing on a foundation of literary influences ranging from David Eddings to Clive Barker.
I received this book as part of the Ultimate blog tour organised by the @The_WriteReads tours team.
