Release day: Sorcery and Stardust

22 June 2019

Today is the official release of Sorcery and Stardust by Samantha Marshall (ebook and print, self-published). Here’s the blurb:

The sorceress Arcana and her soulmerged deer companion Caelum have spent fifty years traversing the galaxy, following the song that haunts Caelum’s dreams in an attempt to solve the mystery of their creation.

Fenris, stalwart Guardian of the Weaver and her Timeless Kingdom, leaps into a destabilised portal to escape the clutches of the insidious warg, led by a madman intent on possessing the Weaver and controlling time, space and reality.

Thrust together by the mysterious threads of fate, the trio cross the galaxy in a last ditch attempt to avert disaster. The tall, brooding Fenris holds the key to unlocking the mystery of Arcana and Caelum’s past, whilst they in turn have the skills to liberate his trapped queen and vanquish the bloodthirsty warg that threaten the very fabric of reality.

To succeed, Fenris and Arcana must confront not only their own personal demons but the deep passion which threatens to bloom between them – or risk the complete and utter destruction of everything they hold dear.

Samantha dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

Sorcery and Stardust came to be one late afternoon over coffee with a friend. It began with the title, which I tossed into the conversation as a flippant offering for a mash-up of genres and then couldn’t forget. Before I knew it I had a sorceress named Arcana, her magical space deer companion, Caelum, and a knight in shining armour who I dubbed Captain Slashy. A short while later he became Fenris, but the affectionate nickname stuck and even makes an appearance or two in the book. Sometimes I wake with a whole, rounded-out idea, but for Sorcery and Stardust this wasn’t the case. I had fun main characters, a spaceship that ran on magic crystals and the barest hint of a concept. The rest of the plot only began to unfurl when I sat down at my computer and began to write, allowing Arcana, Caelum and Fenris to tell their own story. Writing this book has been an incredible journey of self-discovery, and my one wish is that those who read it gain the same love for the story and it’s narrators as I did. Enjoy!
