I’ve written a new novel, THE LORDS OF POWDER, that’s about to be published as both an eBook and hard-copy. This is a work in my series which includes the previously published THE LORDS OF OBLIVION (see links on this site). Each book can be read as its own fast-paced, stand-alone story.
Here’s a summary of THE LORDS OF POWDER:
At the height of Miami’s cocaine wars, a magician pursues a fortune smuggling and woos a smart, attractive musician while eluding drug cartels and the police.
In this mash-up of modern fantasy, historical fiction and action adventure, Bradan is a 1500 year old magician who only looks 30 years old. He’s led a long and eventful life at various times fleeing Vikings and joining court-life in medieval Andalusia. In late 20th century Miami, he drives a haunted Volvo station wagon, keeps a high-strung wolf, and collects fine art for his Palm Beach condo. However, he needs money for his lifestyle. Lots of money.
Bradan uses his magical talents to organize a lucrative smuggling ring, but success brings him to the attention of savagely violent players in the drug trade as well as Miami narcotics detectives, the Coast Guard, and the DEA. He’s also forced to balance the profitability of his vocation with its consequences for his relationships, humanity, and survival.
THE LORDS OF POWDER will be available in both eBook and hard-copy formats. Future posts will show the book cover and provide more details.
