JQM LITERARY SPOTLIGHT PRESENTS Shadow of the Crown by Amber Morant
FIRST, LET’S GET TO KNOW YOU A BIT. TELL US SOMETHING UNIQUE ABOUT YOURSELF:
I am half Japanese and grew up in a psuedo Japanese culture. This has helped with influencing many of my books and mythos.
WHAT IS THE GENRE AND AUDIENCE FOR THIS BOOK:
Dungeonpunk/Grimdark. The audience is mostly 20-30 year old women who read books by authors like George RR Martin.
WHAT WAS THE INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS BOOK:
My biggest inspiration was my angst filled days growing up. It was where to story had originated. Many characters had lasted over the years with some only changing names and others going from protagonist to antagonist. Beyond that, so many books, movies, shows, and video games have inspired me and my writing. At times you can find those Easter Eggs scattered through my books as a sort of nod to the inspiration.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BOOK:
Anjuu has been trained to become the deadliest assassin in Narishma. Persecuted by elves now stands at the pinnacle of society thanks to the Queen conquering the country. Her latest mission: to kill the rebellion growing within the countryside. But not everything is as clear as Anjuu had learned in the dark halls of the castle. Truths will unfold as the assassin closes in on her target. Tosh has grown to become an elf of education and expeditions, thrust into the quarries to serve under the Drow Queen. The vengeance he seeks against the queen only grows after he escapes with the help of Narishma’s God Devata. Accompanied by a sprite, Tosh sets out to find the next Dragon Guardian and destroy the very government that enslaves his people. A country under war. Magic and technology blending together. A mission that will take the races of Narishma on an adventure that will show where true loyalty rests and the sacrifices that must be made to maintain order.
