Release day: Trelloran Seduction
Today is the official release of Trelloran Seduction by Georgia Carter Mathers (paperback, self-published). Here’s the blurb:
Experience a mix of dystopian brutality and fairytale. This fantasy paranormal romance is reminiscent of Sarah J. Maas’s storytelling, yet if you liked Rebecca Hamilton’s Origin and Nalini Singh’s gritty urban fantasies, you’ll fall in love with Trelloran Seduction.
It begins on the 300th day of 2195 on Volen …
There is no such thing as an individual. All the humans think of themselves as units with predetermined roles, and they do not grow old with their lovers. The females are sacrificed when they turn thirty, leaving their male counterparts behind.
Princess Kaitlau is a nymph who can take any form. She is also a refugee. She came to Volen through the charmed window after escaping her prison on Trellora.
King Ganim, the vampire who is thought to have created Kaitlau, must be punished. She had thought he loved her as a father, but that could not be. Although he was never present in the chamber, the king had ordered the priests to repeatedly rape her. Merely punishing her father is not enough. She wants him dead. It will be done.
Kaitlau has been observing a particular rebel killing priests on Volen. He is just the one to help her. But feelings for the rebel start to emerge when he agrees to carry out her assassination plans, and gradually as they work together, love begins to matter more than revenge.
Georgia dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:
Trelloran Seduction was born in the remains of an unpublished novella I wrote about Kaitlau and Pietah. After writing their story, I realised most of Kaitlau’s history was still unknown, so I explored why she was being so secretive. Slowly, I realised she had been sexually abused many times. She finds it difficult to talk about it, and this discovery led me to further realisations. Volen, the world on which Kaitlau and Pietah meet, is a misogynistic world that normalises the abuse and sacrifice of women. Trelloran Seduction follows the journey of two broken individuals, who each privately hope for romance, healing, and happiness. I hope you like the book.
