Chains of Merzai Book Launch Today!

Cover of Chains of Merzai by Raven J. Demers and Robin Wood. A brown-skinned, brown-haired elf woman (Aeri) in brown vest and linen shirt, lovingly caresses the cheek of her dying lover, Eila, a fat, light-skinned elf woman with copper hair who lies in a bed of fur. Aeri's left hand hovers above Eila's chest as if trying to heal her. Translucent curtains around the bed partially obscure the face of a light blue-skinned, blue-haired elf woman who scowls at the pair. Cover illustration by Bond Buwalda.

The third book the in Amakai series, Chains of Merzai, is available today in print, for Kindle, and on other digital platforms. This book includes four new coloring pages by Emily Fuller, who illustrated the coloring pages for The Grasp of Time. We’re quite happy she was able to join our team again for this book.

Chains of Merzai

The world is in chaos, and Eila Corbin, Seal Breaker and The Cause of It All, awaits her death. From her prison in Merzai, her lovers Aeri and Wells bring fleeting comfort and news of the world beyond her chains—a world now reshaped by magic and the technology to combat it. Despite her terminal sentence, there are those in power working to keep her alive. As the first Amakai to appear after centuries, they seek to protect her—or use her—to serve their goals. Caught between court intrigues, inter-Realm gambits, and obsession, Eila escapes into the Dream for her nightly lessons with the black dragon she unwittingly freed.

The Grasp of Time Released!

On November 18th, the first chapter of Eila Corbin’s journey entered the world, resembling only the barest fragments of its original, oral tale shared between a wordsmith (Demers) and a tale spinner (Wood).

Eila Corbin, a modern-day university student, is pulled into a fantastical future where magic and technology are at odds, and mythical beings live among the mundane. While Eila avoids the deadly hands that brought her through time, she finds help from a dwarf, a dragon, and a love that cannot return with her.

The Grasp of Time is the first volume in the new-adult slipstream series, Amakai. This series is linked to coloring pages and invites readers to interact with the story.

The Grasp of Time is available for purchase in print on Amazon, and on Kindle and Nook. The book features eight coloring pages by Emily P. Fuller, cover illustration by Natasha Swan, and editing by Ellen Klowden.
