That’s Entertainment has been very busy with book promotions and we have a fantastic way to wrap up the week before the holiday!
I’m especially interested in this subgenre because my own series of books, Tellest, will be heading towards the seas. The great work found in these pirate tales are feeding my inspiration.
Rex Sumner is prolific and has led such a thrilling life, that its hard to not chronicle those stories. He’s had the perfect practice for storytelling; spinning yarns for his children.
In Search of Spice is the first novel, of epic proportions, in Sumner’s Harrhein series. In it, we follow the adventures of the crew of The Queen Rose. It’s an ensemble piece that flows deftly from page to page, and catches your interest from the very first turn.
In Search of Spice is an epic historical fantasy romance, set in a world similar to 12th century Europe. The Queen Rose is the first deep sea ship built in Harrhein, a country cut off from the rest of the world by snow and ice to the north and pirates to the east. In every other direction is endless ocean.
Captain Larroche is the veteran master of the carrack, charged with finding a new trade route. He wants to find the fabled land of Hind and proposes to sail over the edge of the world. No wonder he has trouble finding crew.
The young people he assembles, strengthened by a squad of frontier veteran Royal Pathfinders, are more than a match for known enemies.
How will they handle people of another color, with strange habits, peculiar food, treacherous officials, different languages and customs that defy belief?
Will they escape the pirates? Will they find trading opportunities? Will they ever return?
What will happen to Harrhein during their absence?
Rex Sumner has been working hard, and you can tell that In Search of Spice is the fruit of his labor. If you’re interested in a good swashbuckling tale; check it out on its launch page, or hurry to purchase it from Amazon.
