Crown of Vengeance (Fires in Eden)
"Wonderful and detailed descriptions of the characters including their emotional state and the world of Ave and their inhabitants. The story gets more and more intriguing because you know something but you cannot see how it fits in the big frame. This is definitely a book for people who like character driven stories with gorgeous and detailed descriptions of a fantasy world and their inhabitants mixed with beings who follow devious plans who will face more resistance than expected.....”- Only the Best SciFi/Fantasy “For me to say so many great things about a fantasy book is an accomplishment as these types of books used to be towards the bottom on my list that I was willing to read. This book with the help of Mr. Zimmer has restored my faith that fantasy makes for some thrilling reading.”-Cheryl’s Book Nook “The book is a good blend of new ideas and Tolkien-esque imagery. Zimmer is a promising writer and I anxiously await the next installment in this series.”-Bookworm Blues "He has tendency to pen gripping novels with new twists to some commonly held ideas. Zimmer’s characters are compelling and real. The reader will have no trouble relating to the characters in any of Zimmer’s works. Action, another key point with Stephen Zimmer. Crown of Vengeance has high velocity action. Gear up, for it will leave you breathless and wanting more! Put this one on the top of your Must Read List today." — Mark Randell, Yellow30 SciFi Synopsis: Strange mists engulf Janus Roland, Erika Laesig, Mershad Shahab, and several others going about their lives in a quiet midwestern town. When the mist dissipates, they all find themselves looking up into the bright skies of a new, incredible world. Without explanation of why it has happened, or any notion of where they are, they embark upon a grand adventure within the fantastical world of Ave. Some find themselves in the lands of the Saxan Kingdom, while others have emerged within the lands of the Onan, one of the tribes in the Five Realms confederation. Storms of war loom over both Saxany and the Five Realms, as invasion forces mass under the inspiration of The Unifier, a mysterious, captivating figure whose influence has swept across the surface of Ave ever since His rise to power in the Gallean duchy of Avanor. It is a war that will be fought in the skies, upon the seas, on land, and even in places non-physical in nature. A majestic, epic fantasy that begins many adventures and journeys across a diverse and enthralling world, filled with races and creatures both familiar and new. Crown of Vengeance lights the flame of the Fires in Eden series, bringing to life a bold, far-ranging, and grand new venture within the realms of fantasy literature, and appeals strongly to readers of George R.R. Martin, Steven Erikson, and Robert Jordan.
