Savage Storm: Rys Rising Book II

savage-storm-300

Continue the Rys Rising series with the fast-paced sequel Savage Storm by Tracy Falbe.  Ebook and paperback available.

Filled with righteous rage, Dacian and Onja defend their newly liberated home from tabre attack. No longer hobbled by dreams of rys and tabre unity, Dacian crafts enchanted weapons and trains the rys to fight. Onja’s love fills his emptiness, and together they reach toward even greater magical powers.

As the rys and tabre clash, Onja’s faithful warrior Amar faces many challenges while raising an army for her. Can he dominate the Overlord of the Kez? Will Amar expose himself to the carnal charms of the Shamaness Loxane to gain a new ally? Can he give up his lust for Princess Demeda and ransom her to the Temulanka Tribe as his duty demands?

While he sows war across the tribal kingdoms, Onja also enthralls the savages of the Nufalese frontier and unleashes their brutal hordes upon vulnerable settlements. Desperate to defend his people, Cruce Chenomet and his comrades trade wenching and drinking for grueling battles. His passionate dalliance from the year before unexpectedly becomes a vexing relationship. Bombarded by threats both to his body and heart, Cruce quickly loses hope but keeps his courage as he confronts the savage storm.

How life in Michigan influences fantasy author Tracy Falbe

savage-storm-300Authors are influenced by where they grow up and the places they live throughout their lives. What would some of Mark Twain’s books be like if he had not known the Mississippi River? His pen name wouldn’t have even been Mark Twain.

I grew up in Michigan. Central Michigan to be precise because the many subregions of our peninsula matter, at least to us.

I now live in Battle Creek, which can be classified as Western Michigan, Southern Michigan, or South Central Michigan.

Now you know how easy it is for me to create fantasy worlds divided by warring tribes and haunted wilds.

Speaking of haunted wilds, I consider Michigan to be inherently spooky. The environmental devastation wrought in the 19th century lingers like a crime within the second growth forests. This is one reason why the Lord of the Rings resonated with me so much as a young reader. I think our history of deforestation prepared me to understand the malice of Fanghorn Forest and Mirkwood. From a very young age, I always sensed the hidden life within the trees, and some of them resented people. I immediately found the theme of sentient trees in Tolkein’s masterpiece appealing and relatable.

Although my fantasy writing does not focus on trees, our oxygen-producing neighbors always inspire me. Nature and landscapes play an important role in my fiction, and I sprinkle references to trees throughout the prose.

In my first published novel, Union of Renegades, I wanted to summon my feelings born of Michigan’s forests. The novel opens with two people entering a haunted Wilderness from which no one has ever returned.

From Union of Renegades: The Rys Chronicles Book I

UoR160

As soon as she was alone on the road, she turned off and headed into the fields. In the distance the fields dwindled into pastures, and then the forest began. Approaching the very edge of the Wilderness, Miranda became afraid, feeling the dangerous potential within.

A giant oak stood out before the rest of the trees like a sentinel. The limbs of the oak curved and curled gracefully. A sudden gust of wind rattled the many branches of the watchful tree as she passed beneath.

Growing up in the Great Lakes region also gave me the ability to write about bad weather. My novels have featured punishing thunderstorms, armies brought to a standstill by freezing rain, and the quiet of a forest where snow falls gently. Even so, I hesitate to call our weather “inspiring.”

Every state is home to many talented people. Thankfully, with the rise of the internet, authors can now reach readers directly. I’ve been producing my novels since 2006, and they are available worldwide.

Lessons Learned – Short Story Exclusive for Kindle

Experience this crucial episode between Shan and Onja 400 years before their relationship descends into the rebellion depicted in The Rys Chronicles.

On April 30th, I released a short story set in the world of the Rys, the fantasy world where I’ve created 8 full-length novels.

In Lessons Learned, I reveal the moment when Shan challenges Onja for the first time.

About this Kindle Short:

A rash act of defiance will thrust Shan into a high stakes competition with Onja, his lover, his queen.

His compassion for a mere human starts his descent into a dangerous test that he is not prepared for. Then, his desire to be his own master drives him to continue. Shan feels his magic growing inside him. He sees the good that can be accomplished if only he can stop the vicious queen who has ruled over the rys and her human worshippers for centuries.

Step into the epic world of the rys with this short story from the Rys World that inspired eight other fantasy novels by Tracy Falbe.

Enjoy this dark fantasy on your Kindle reader, Kindle app, or with your Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Rys Rising: Book I

Rys Rising: Book I by Tracy Falbe

In this passionate epic told from many angles, the young outlaw Amar becomes a dreaded warlord, the terror of kings. His ambitions blind him to the trivial diversions of mere female company until he must block a treaty marriage between two powerful tribes.

Confronted by the desperate Princess Demeda, he feels temptation again, but the longings of his ruined heart cannot overcome his pure love for Onja. She is a mysterious outcast from the magical rys race that is oppressed by the tabre of Nufal. Onja has commanded Amar to dominate the humans of Gyhwen while she plots to overthrow her tabre masters.

To support her cause, she aims to seduce Dacian, a prodigy among rys, whose powers have been hobbled by his loyalty to the ruling tabre order. Will he endure more dark abuses for the sake of peace or reach out to Onja?

While a rys rebellion secretly brews, the human minions of the tabre battle pillaging savages. The young estate lord, Cruce Chenomet, joins the fight. Violent trials and sensual surprises break the trail on his journey to manhood.

Packed with primitive energy and complex motivations, the intertwining stories and rising stakes of this fantasy world will indulge your cravings for intrigue, bravery, desire, and freedom.
