A little bit more about the book:

The Great Way is an epic fantasy trilogy about a supernatural invasion that destroys an empire.

The city of Peradain is the heart of an empire built with steel, spears, and a monopoly on magic… until, in a single day, it falls, overthrown by a swarm of supernatural creatures of incredible power and ferocity. Neither soldier nor spell caster can stand against them.

The empire’s armies are crushed, its people scattered, its king and queen killed. Freed for the first time in generations, city-states scramble to seize neighboring territories and capture imperial spell casters. But as the creatures spread across the land, these formerly conquered peoples discover they are not prepared to face the enemy that destroyed an empire.

Can the last Peradaini prince, pursued by the beasts that killed his parents, cross battle-torn lands to retrieve a spell that might—just might—turn the battle against this new enemy?

    I actually have this book from when I contributed to the author’s kickstarter campaign a while back, I think. I hope you enjoy it!

    Good luck with book 7 – you seem to be making great progress. 😀

    Interesting – a fantasy novel with a potentially unusual premise!

    Of course, it could end up steering heavily into “last prince quests for macguffin” quest/S&S territory, or into “fight against the monsters destroying the world” epic territory. But if it keeps the monsters more in the background and doesn’t become too much of a travelogue, it could occupy a really interesting semi-post-apocalyptic-politics niche that we don’t normally see…
