Echo of the Ages by Qorvus

 

The tide of years washes over the lands and in its wake civilisations and nations vanish, leaving behind only monuments of past glories, forgotten ruins buried beneath the sands and hidden tombs.

Within them can be found the wealth of the past, by those skilled and lucky, wealth enough for a lifetime. The ruins do not give up their treasures easily though, for often they are guarded by traps and wards.

Kathri, the daughter of exiles and mistrusted for her nature, is one such who plunders the ruins of the past, having both the skill and the luck to survive.

Danger comes from not just from within, as there are rivals who would do whatever it takes to beat her to the treasures, and also the Mages and the Kingdoms of the Ciosalan Conclave that have proclaimed that the Mages alone have the rights to search through the ruins and who punish severely any caught plundering.

It may turn out though that the greatest danger is what lies in the ruins that seeks to get out . . . 

Note: Echo of the Ages contains some graphic violence.

For the Description Lover

By LadyAnder, author of Hy'Ruh-Ha

Sep 2, 2016: This story is quite the fantasy read and it may fulfill the desires of those who love descriptive high fantasy. I mean the description is lovely. That is what stands out to me as I know there are readers out there who appreciate this sort of thing.

However, I’ve a single gripe about this novel which is rather minor considering I did enjoy reading it is that it’s a bit slow. Now, I’m not saying that all novels need to be [more . . .]

Moves slow, but certainly worth a look

By Ria Fritz, author of Maywitch

Aug 26, 2016: Holy epic fantasy, Batman! If you’re a fan of descriptive, vivid fantasy stories with a refreshingly original premise, you’re in for a treat. Though the plot advances slowly, the well-written prose is a treat in and of itself. Unfortunately, the exposition gets excessive at times, which keeps this review from being 4 or 4.5 stars.

The author does an amazing job reeling the reader into a story that’s half Indiana Jones, half Lord of the Rings. A good portion of the [more . . .]
