An introduction to Selenoth

In case you're wondering what all the discussion of the various Selenoth-related books is about, or if some of the superlatives being cast about could be even remotely justified, you can now dip your toe into the epic fantasy waters at neither risk nor cost to yourself, as A MAGIC BROKEN is free on Kindle today.

The ebook is a novella in which is related the brief intersection of two perspective characters from A THRONE OF BONES and A SEA OF SKULLS prior to the events of either book. I think those who are fans of the Arts of Dark and Light series would agree that it is a reasonably fair warning of what the reader can expect from immersion into what is now, according to Amazon's most recent Kindle Normalized Page Count, a cumulative 3,053 pages of epic high fantasy.

Anyhow, if you haven't read it yet, I'd encourage you to download it and check it out. Even if fantasy isn't really your thing, it's more than a bit of a spy thriller as well.

Definitely a good novella. I got a review copy from you. As I remember, this was between Summa Elvetica and A Throne of Bones. One of the characters bridged the gap.

A gracious and addictive Christmas gift - the best kind.

Definitely a good intro to the world of Selenoth for someone who isn't sure. A lot packed in to a little package with the epic stories behind it if it's to your taste.

Highly recommended!

This was both my introduction to the series and then this site. It makes a great introduction.

Thank YOU for the Christmas present, it will keep me occupied on the flight home.

In my opinion, the stories in "A Magic Broken" and "Summa Elvetica" are absolutely essential reading.

I've just re-read them for the third time, and I still new new things that surprise me with their beauty and subtly

These two definitely deserve the hard cover treatment.

I was just shy of two years old when I was first consulted on what I might like for my birthday present. I replied, "Books."

It wouldn't be correct to say that since then I have only found peace in a little nook with a little book, as bicycles and fly rods have provided their measure, but also perhaps a bit more than their measure of frustration, so books take the consistency prize.

Thank for the book, Merry Christmas and as much peace to you and yours as you find tolerable.

Vox, did you never make it through Alan Moore's Jerusalem? I was hoping for some kind of comment ...

Thank you very much for the book.

Thanks, VD. Merry Christmas!

Vox, you do a lot of things. But fantasy writing is perhaps what you do best.

Thank you, but I have to say I found this incredibly amusing, as I have been repeatedly told that writing fiction is the one thing at which I am completely mediocre.

Just wanted to say thanks, the time has come and is way overdue for me to get into your fiction! Merry Christmas!

Thank you for your generosity, Vox. I've yet to delve into the Selenoth world, so this will be my introduction.

Gotta love my "kid"(48y/o). I introduced her to VoxDay a while back and for Christmas she gave me "Missionary", "Iron Chamber", and "SJW". That's what I call a serious ROI.

Someone once wrote a class of people who wrote comments like that.. the author escapes me at the moment, but I think the title was something like "SJWs Always Lie" or something like that.

PS: As good as ATOB and ASOS(so far) are, I actually find Summa Elvetica and A Magic Broken more moving.

"about a class of people"

Vox, thank you. Merry Christmas.

I loved the characters in this book. Interesting & well developed. Particularly the dwarf. I wondered why they never made the cut to a throne of bones.
