Today, I’m thrilled to announce the very first Emergent Realms universe and novel. VILE & BLESSED by A H Serrano, the first novel in The Vile & Blessed trilogy and the world of Eszailha, will be released on October 30, 2020.
A H Serrano and her editing team (Kate Watts and Jim Wilbourne) have worked on this story world for years, building a realm of magic and mystery for Emergent Realms’s first release of fantasy fiction. And we couldn’t be happier with the result.
Here’s the synopsis:
A Cursed Existence. An Insidious Spirit. A Hidden Land.
There has never been an Anmerilian born without ability.
Never, until River Kennry.
River has no place in a world where worth is measured by the power of one’s ability. He is an anomaly and an outcast, afflicted by an ailment no one can see or explain. Caught in the unrelenting hold of his government, he falls further into the pit of hopelessness as he wrestles with the mysteries of his past.
After a fated meeting with a cryptic stranger, River realizes the only way to uncover his past is to return to the Institute—the very place that scarred and violated him. And if he goes back, it could mean forfeiting his life.
But could everyone be wrong about him? Though he remains untouched by power, there is something inside him. Something alive and entangled with secrets that could upset the balance of everything his generation has ever known to be true.
