Kings or Pawns by JJ Sherwood

Join the Kickstarter for Kings or Pawns Audiobook!

The world of young adult fantasy is crammed full of thousands of novels to read—most of which we can only dream of conquering in our lifetime.

Adult high fantasy is another tale entirely. Those of us bookworms who devour novel after novel soon find ourselves scraping for another tale with the depth, intensity, and maturity that comes along with the adult genre.

Steps of Power is exactly that: an intense, intriguing, character-focused series that touches those points of fantasy that we crave. This high fantasy is already available as an e-book, paperback, and hardback, but one format yet remains to be created: Enter the Kings or Pawns Kickstarter, a fantastic unabridged audiobook production that will bring this High Fantasy Epic to life!

It is 8,994 P.E. and the elven city of Elvorium has become corrupted to the core by politics. With his father dead and The Royal Schism at his back, Prince Hairem becomes the king of the elven world on Sevrigel. Young and daring, Hairem is determined to undo the council's power, but quickly finds his loyal council members brutally murdered by an assassin loosed within the city. As corruption and death threaten to tear the city apart from within, the warlord Saebellus threatens the city from without, laying siege to Sevrigel's eastern capital. With the elven world crumbling around him, Hairem finds himself in a dangerous political balance between peace and all out war.

And the team behind me is as passionate as they are talented—our editor, Alexandra Birr, our artist Kirk Quilaquil, our webdesigner Michael Broering, and our voice actor, Matthew Lloyd Davies.
The Kings or Pawns Kickstarter is enough to thrill any Fantasy fan. Each reward tier of $10 and up includes a copy of the Kings or Pawns e-book, and every tier above offers incredible rewards! Paperbacks, hardbacks, bookmarks, posters, canvases, decks of cards, stuffed animals, and even a beautiful plush blanket with a landscape of the city of Elvorium. Each art reward features an epic design from the series artist, the incredibly talented Kirk Quilaquil. And now that we’ve reached our initial goal, we are aiming to help fund the second audiobook and unlock pre-release access of the second novel to everyone who can join in the campaign!

The Kickstarter will run until September 5th, 2015, and you can check it out here: Contact the author on Twitter with any questions.
