Spotlight: Fires in Eden Book 1 - Crown of Vengeance by Stephen Zimmer

Hey everyone, here's another spotlight for you about a novel that is sure to start grabbing attention - not only is it written by a great author (I'm reading this at the moment, and enjoying it) but it's also the launch of a new series. :-) Here's some info about the book for you all:

Begin an Epic Journey...

On a night that begins no different from any other, strange mists engulf Janus Roland, Erika Laesig, Mershad Shahab, and several others going about their lives in a quiet midwestern town. When the mist dissipates, they all find themselves looking up into the bright skies of a new, incredible world.

Without explanation of why it has happened, or any notion of where they are, they embark upon a grand adventure within the fantastical world of Ave. Some find themselves in the lands of the Saxan Kingdom, while others have emerged within the lands of the Onan, one of the tribes in the Five Realms confederation.

Storms of war loom over both Saxany and the Five Realms, as invasion forces mass under the inspiration of The Unifier, a mysterious, captivating figure whose influence has swept across the surface of Ave ever since His rise to power in the Gallean duchy of Avanor. It is a war that will be fought in the skies, upon the seas, on land, and even in places non-physical in nature.

A majestic, epic fantasy that begins many adventures and journeys across a diverse and enthralling world, filled with races and creatures both familiar and new, Crown of Vengeance lights the flame of the Fires in Eden series, bringing to life a bold, far-ranging, and grand new venture within the realms of fantasy literature.

Sounds very interesting. I tried to find out the publishing date but I failed.

Hi ediFanoB--will be out November 9th officially, but as with all things in the small press world, some bookstores will take a little time in adding it to their shelves, others will be quicker, etc. Contact me anytime if you have questions, and thanks for the reply. ( my email is stephen at stephenzimmer dot com)

Sgzimmer, thank you very much for your reply.
I live in Germany, Therefore I order most of my books at Amazon DE and at Book Depository UK. So looked for the book but didn't find it. But I hope it will be available sooner or later.

Dave, thank you for organizing the answer. I appreciate it.

Absolutely no problem, my pleasure. :-) But Stephen is the awesome guy - most authors would leave it to the marketing people. :-) Thanks Stephen! :-)
