Visions of Zarua Czech edition released today! #fantasy #newrelease #translation

I’m so excited. I’ve been waiting for this moment since January 2018 when I was first contacted by Albatros Media.

Zarua – Lost City is out today!

Zarua

Here’s the Albatros Media link for those interested and the translated blurb.

World fantasy edition Pendragon brings the most resounding names of this genre appreciated by critics and readers alike.

The sorcerer’s apprentice, Paddren, is troubled by strange visions in which the city appears on the verge of extermination. When his master dies and the Order of Wizards refuses to investigate this violent death, Paddren pledges to detect the killer. The search takes him on a journey full of bounty hunters, sects and monsters created by bloody magic. But his nothing stops. The visions that link him to the memories of a long-dead wizard are the key to solving many puzzles. And he is going to solve them.

 

The publisher’s extended blurb…

The sorcerer’s apprentice, Paddren, is troubled by strange visions in which the city appears on the verge of extermination. When, under mysterious circumstances, his master dies and the Order of Wizards refuses to investigate his death, Paddren pledges to reveal the killer with the help of his friends.

The search takes them on a painful journey full of bounty hunters, sects and monsters created by bloody magic. But nothing stops Paddren. The visions that link him to the memories of a long-dead wizard are the key to solving many puzzles. And he is going to solve them.

Find out why Zarua was abandoned? Will he save his people from the darkness that is beginning to spread out of the forgotten city?

(Please forgive any translation issues, I’m using  my computer to translate the text)
The release is just in time for the Humbook festival on 5th October, a huge YA literature festival held in Prague. My book will be on sale alongside great authors like Robin Hobb, JK Rowling, Sarah J Maas, Jay Kristoff  and Holly Black.
I wish I could be there to see the hardback edition of my book, but I will be there in spirit. Plus I’ll be travelling to Prague in a few weeks to see my books on sale in the local book shops. I can’t wait to share those pictures with you.

Of course you can still get the UK edition in ebook, paperback and audiobook here.
I love the Czech edition. Here’s my blurb and cover for comparison.

Two wizards, 350 years apart. Can they save the realm of Paltria from Zarua’s dark past?

An ancient darkness haunts the realm of Paltria.
Apprentice wizard Paddren is plagued by visions of a city on the brink of annihilation. When his master dies in mysterious circumstances, the Royal Order of Wizards refuses to investigate.
Helped by his childhood friend, the skilled tracker Varnia, and her lover Leyoch, Paddren vows to find the killer.
The investigation leads Paddren down a sinister path of assassins, secret sects and creatures conjured by blood magic. But he is guided by a connection with a wizard from centuries ago – a wizard whose history holds the key to the horror at the heart of the abandoned city of Zarua. Can Paddren decipher his visions and save the Paltrian people before the dark menace of Zarua’s past is unleashed?

Reviews are slowly coming in for the audio version and I have a blog tour planned later in October which will hopefully produce some more reviews. You can listen to the sample now and see what you think of the awesome Guy Barnes’ narration style.

That’s it for now but the time of celebration is not over yet… I can’t wait for tomorrow’s big release. See you then…
