Novel Title: The Trilogic Worlds: The Fictional War
Genre: Adventure Fantasy/Alternate Fairy Tale
Length: 140K
Format: Kindle, Phone, Tablet, Computer
Back Cover Blurb:

Emmanuel was always an ordinary, run-of-the-mill boy, but upon receiving a mysterious letter with even more mysterious instructions, he is thrust into a complicated battle encompassing all three worlds of Earth, Destroyia, and Fantasia.

Destroyia and Fantasia are fairy-tale worlds, filled with the classic fictional characters whose lives Emmanuel has loved reading about - reading is his sole escape from the dullness of real life.

Yet these worlds come with a twist. Despite the beauty fairy tales suggest, villains had the upper hand and dominated all in the once-united land of Destasia. The cruel Destroyians enslaved the smaller population of kind-hearted Fantasians in their unified land. After decades of oppression, the Fantasians' only option was to flee to a whole new world.

But united under one fearsome and scarred leader of suspicious origins, the Destroyians are coming back for the Fantasians, despite the powerful magical barrier the Fantasians created.

And then they are coming for Earth.

Will Emmanuel be able to help the Fantasians to victory and find his long-lost father in the fairy tale worlds as the letter suggests, or will the Destroyians rule all three worlds?

A book you can't put down, The Trilogic Worlds is an expertly woven, enthralling story crafted by a thirteen-year-old.

Info: really need reviews on Amazon. This is my debut novel and I want to see it succeed. It's hard enough writing this is a kid, and even harder watching the SR go down.

How old are you @Simon Ilincev?
Kallor shrugged. 'I've walked this land when the T'lan Imass were but children. I've commanded armies a hundred thousand strong. I've spread the fire of my wrath across entire continents, and sat alone upon tall thrones. Do you grasp the meaning of this?'

It is written in the product description on Amazon. I am 13 years old.
Thank you for your interest in this post.
I believe that it is not the age that matters, but the mindset. Although most people wouldn't associate younger people with writing quality, I disagree with that.

Back Cover Blurb: Pulp Fantasy Reborn

Beneath the bloodstained moon, the only thing more insane than the people are the cosmic horrors they call gods.

Modernization is fast approaching. The only escape is a desert where sword & sorcery reign supreme, locked in an age of antiquity by its eldritch serpentine overlords. But, the outside world does not intend for it to stay that way. A disillusioned legionnaire and a bloodthirsty barbarian travel east. One to escape the life he knew, the other for revenge. Rebels struggle with their hard-won freedom while a half-breed fights to quell them before his masters do. A pirate takes a job beyond her depth in the hopes of undermining the serpent-men's power. And a sorceress drives herself to the brink of madness in a bid for it.

By fate or happenstance, they converge on something far greater than any of them. Their fates hopelessly intertwined, they march forward. Yet no matter how lightly they tread, the chaos each leaves in their wake threatens to swallow the others in this tale of blood, bronze, sorcery, and gunpowder.

Format: E-book (EPUB, MOBI)
Back Cover Blurb:

Emperors and kings thought it had been buried long ago: the Order of the Candlestone was defeated, the grim deeds of its assassins forgotten and its dangerous alchemy shunned. But Arasemis, an eccentric warrior-scholar, is determined to revive the Order and return the continent to its primitive origins, if he can control his apprentices.

Arthan Valient is a young nobleman from a respected family who wrestles with providing honorable service to a weak king. Thrust into a powerful position before he is ready, Arthan must navigate the political intrigue of a court in slow collapse, while avoiding Arasemis’s new assassins.

Milisend is the weak king’s daughter, a princess who secretly shuns the life of royalty and hides her passion for thievery and a certain thief. But as the machinations of Arasemis and Arthan intensify, these mere distractions become live-saving in ways she never expected. And from within her emerges something she never knew she had.

Arasemis, Arthan, Milisend, and their companions learn that help can be found in the most unlikely of places, even as the shadow of war looms across the continent. But trust is always elusive.

When machines run on human souls, cruelty is king.

Mia has spent her life seeking freedom from oppression, discrimination and human greed.
She's never questioned where the power of her weapons comes from or where her orders will lead her.
That's about to change.

Blacksmith Henri fled with his five year old son Adem to the frontier, desperate to hide his boy.
As an outsider and the son of a former slave, Henri has worked hard to win over their village.
Unfortunately this has given him little time to monitor his son who's powers are growing.

When the armies of Baron Halett and the Holy Ganex Empire clash, Henri's son becomes infected
by nineteen twisted souls. Mia and Henri must set off to cure the boy's affliction before
it eats him alive from the inside.

Set during an age of exploitation and plunder where ancient magic has been harnessed to power
renaissance era technology, Path of Ruin is a race against time. Swords & sorcery, witches & wizards, gunpowder, cannons, and great granite golems known as goliaths, await the reader
in this grand series.
