This novel takes place in the same world and at the same time as Bastial Energy, but on another continent with different characters that play a major role in later novels.
The next novel in the Rhythm of Rivalry series is available now on Amazon.
I was writing The Sartious Mage as I was editing Bastial Energy, which is how I was able to release it so soon after Bastial Energy. I had great difficulty determining whether to label the book 1.5 or 2.0 in the series. I decided on 1.5 because it isn’t exactly a sequel, which 2.0 would imply. Instead, the Sartious Mage introduces characters on a new continent, Greenedge, and introduces a story on this continent that will be continued throughout the series. If this is a little confusing, don’t worry. By the end of The Sartious Mage, it will make sense. Here’s the description:
At just seventeen years old, Jek Trayden’s power with Sartious Energy could be the greatest in the world, but that power comes at a price—a darkness within him that attacks while he sleeps, producing nightmares so real they leave him bruised and bloody.
With the attacks worsening, Jek can’t refuse an opportunity to end his nightmares for good when the King promises him a cure in exchange for a task.
But after the King’s true intentions are revealed, Jek finds himself in a fit of rage, stealing the King’s fearless and livid daughter from the palace—on her wedding day—and fleeing the city with the wrath of her father on his tail.
Jek’s about to find out there are some things in this world worse than his darkness.
*A note on this novel in relation to the series:*
The Sartious Mage can be read as the first or second novel in the Rhythm of Rivalry series, but it should be read before the third. This novel takes place in the same world as Bastial Energy, but on another continent with different characters that play a major role in later novels.
