Product Description

Chains that bind the soul are stronger than iron...In the two centuries since the Upheaval and the fall of the God King, the Faceless One’s rule has encompassed the world. He is revered, worshiped, merciless, and he stands unopposed…. Sixteen-year-old Leitos crushes stone by day, and by night shivers in a cramped cell. A slave’s life is brutal and short, but absolute obedience ensures the gifts of peace and bread. All that changes when his grandfather rises against their inhuman slavemasters, forcing upon Leitos a freedom that he never sought.Now, hounded by the Faceless One’s demon-born Hunters, Leitos struggles to heed his grandfather’s last words: “Seek the Brothers of the Crimson Shield.” Those words are his only hope to discover the truth of his people’s enslavement, his only guide to find a secret order of heroes … and they are the words of a madman. ***Q & A with James A. West—Crown of the Setting SunQ: So how did Crown of the Setting Sun come about? JW: When The God King ended, the very next scene I wrote in the Heirs of the Fallen series became the opening chapter for Crown. I found myself curious why Leitos, the new hero, would trust demonic slavemasters more than his own grandfather. I also wanted to know what had happened to Kian and the gang in the two hundred years since we last saw them. So I kept writing—maybe I should say digging—and each new answer led me to new mysteries and surprising revelations.Q: You mentioned the idea of substituting writing for digging. What do you mean by that?JW: When I write, I allow myself to believe the worlds that I create actually exist. With that in mind, my writing process is comparable to searching for buried treasure without a map. I know there’s some kind of loot waiting to be found in the ground of this alternate universe, but I never know if it’s a stash of gold, or a box of grim secrets. So I keep digging, brushing away a bit of soil here and there, then digging some more. I don’t stop until I find what is hidden.Q: Crown of the Setting Sun begins by throwing the reader into a critical and rather hair-raising moment in the young hero’s life. Is there any particular reason for leaping so quickly off the starting line?JW: Say you’re buying a lottery ticket at a gas station, and next thing you know there’s a gun jammed against the back of your head. Until that moment, you might have been thinking about dinner, or work, or maybe you were just zoning out. Now, let’s assume all goes well and you escape. For at least a little while afterward, even the most mundane things have meaning and purpose in your life, and you start to question the purpose of everything. I start stories in the thick of things, because life often meanders along in a humdrum manner until the moment a catalyst brings everything into sharp focus and forces you—or, in this case, our young hero, Leitos—to look for answers to questions you never knew you had. Q: Who is Crown of the Setting Sun targeted at?JW: Fans of The God King will enjoy Crown, as will readers who devour big name fantasy writers such as George R. R. Martin, Michael Moorecock, and Patrick Rothfuss. While my writing style is similar to theirs, I’ve chosen to keep a tight rein on my cast of characters—the entirety of Crown, for example, is seen through Leitos’s eyes. This style keeps my writing crisp and focused, and ensures readers stay glued to the edge of their seats. As usual, I shy away from standard settings, but at its heart, Crown of the Setting Sun is part of an epic fantasy tale that leads readers into a strange and thrilling new realm full of twists and turns, and unexpected dangers.

Product Description

When Eleanor Brice unexpectedly wins the heart of Gregory Desmarais, Crown Prince of Cartheigh, she's sure she's found her happily-ever-after. Unfortunately, Prince Charming has a loose grip on his temper, a looser grip on his marriage vows, and a tight grip on the bottle. Eight years of mistreatment, isolation and clandestine book learning hardly prepare Eleanor for life at Eclatant Palace, where women are seen, not heard. According to Eleanor’s eavesdropping parrot, no one at court appreciates her unladylike tendency to voice her opinion. To make matter worse, her royal fiancé spends his last night of bachelorhood on a drunken whoring spree. Before the ink dries on her marriage proclamation Eleanor realizes that she loves her husband's best friend, former soldier Dorian Finley.Eleanor can’t resist Dorian’s honesty, or his unusual admiration for her intelligence, and soon both are caught in a dangerous obsession. She drowns her confusion in charitable endeavors, but the people’s love can’t protect her from her feelings. When a magical crime endangers the bond between unicorns, dragons, and the royal family, a falsely accused Eleanor must clear her own name to save her life. The road toward vindication will force a choice between hard-won security and an impossible love.***“Stephanie Alexander gives happily ever after a mature dose of reality by combining magic with medieval conventions and male-dominant politics, adding a sophisticated and fantastical twist to the beloved Cinderella fairy tale. Readers who enjoy witches, wizards, unicorns, and dragons will be especially intrigued by the mythology behind the beautiful kingdom of Cartheigh.” -- Anita Grace Howard, author of Splintered (Amulet Books)
