Post by: DCuervonegro on July 05, 2020, 10:37:05 PM
New Fantasy book by Colombian author, Daniel Cuervonegro.

The Atlas of Dreams is a five-episode series, starting with Sins of the Maker, the setup and beginning of the rising conflict brought about by our search of transcendence and the paths we take towards it. After the stars have lost their energy and the universe reaches its final breaths, humanity strives for paradise. But the cost of it can be too great for those who must choose for the rest of us.

Very few blurbs have intrigued me as much as this. I'll add it to my TBR, though will take me a couple of weeks to get around to this.

Is this an anthology of stories in same universe?

And have you listed this in SPFBO?

Hi Bender,

Thanks for the interest! Sins of the Maker is book one in a series of 5. The books are written in multiple perspectives, with a chapter for every main character. The story interweaves the stories of the characters into a larger narrative and wider explored world. Second Book, The Weight of Our Crimes, is almost done. Book three is titled Those Who Bear Fangs at God; book four is called The Wings of Our Kindness, and Book five is called Children of Ends.it's an epilogue, a little shorter and the conclusion to The Atlas of Dreams saga.

Hahaha, I apologize. I knew it was Bender yet I'm uncertain if the Grammarly thing corrected it or I just misspelt.

It's been amended. Sorry, man. Best wishes.

The story happens in various planets with small habitable areas. These areas are shown in maps like these where the land beyond the black are dangerous or outright uninhabitable.

Blurb:
A futuristic medieval civilisation, dependent on the power of a girl they dub God, is caught in the tempest of the world’s end. Sara the Thirty-fourth must understand the origin of her people’s cycle of suffering while those who try to protect her unravel the horrors of the Last Cycle.

In the year 3417 AT the children of creation will fight.
Warriors of the Second Breath will rise to meet a final sunset.
The wrath of nature will sow the fields of war through its army of angels
and the world will be silent and still.
All will return to the moment of beginning
and we shall be as Gods.

Sins of the Maker explores the motives of our suffering through the relations of its characters with their creators; mothers, fathers, gods, and the ideas that forge in us our fates. It is an action-packed adventure that exposes the human heart to the love and pain of an existence in constant search for purpose.

This is the Atlas of Dreams, our world expiring, our conscience rising.

What do you guys think, is this cover art better than the original? Let me know! Maybe you can see it better here.

I don't know... I changed the cover art but now I'm starting to like my first cover more. I just got the paperback version today and it seems too white. I was thinking on doing a new take on the old while keeping some elements of this new one. I guess I would prefer to show the genre a little more on the cover and the first one actually showed a knight using a digital device, so it hints more at Science Fantasy.
