Long time no speak!
It’s been a while since I posted, so thought I’d better raise my head above the parapet to let the world know I’m still alive.
So, what’s been happening? In summary – Consensus Breaking (Auran Chronicles #2).
After finishing the first draft of Consensus Breaking I made the mistake of putting it up for pre-order almost straight away. With hindsight, this was a bit of a mistake, as, although it gave me a deadline to work to, it also hung over me like the Sword of Damocles whilst I cracked on with the inevitable rewrites. The pressure was a bit too much, and caused a few sleepless nights in the process.
Anyway, lesson learned for the future.
And finally, the end is in sight now. Consensus has been through two bouts of proof reading (thanks everyone!), and it’s with two more proof readers as we speak to try and catch all the errors, typos etc that I always miss.
So – * drum roll* – Consensus Breaking, book 2 of the Auran Chronicles, is officially out on the 27th May, but depending on the changes required from the last proof reads, I may release it earlier.
If you like an urban fantasy mash-up of the Matrix and an adult Harry Potter, then check it out:
The Consensus is broken. Magic is returning to the world…
When Seb and his friends are found by the very mage Families that they’d been seeking, he begins to think that his luck is turning at last, that he’s finally found somewhere to continue the journey he began with the Magistry.
Unfortunately, returning to this secret world is not the homecoming he thought it would be, and when rumors of another faction surface, one that is welcoming the newly awoken without prejudice, Seb is torn between his loyalty to his friends and to those of his fellow magi. He must make a choice. One that will have repercussions far beyond the internal struggles of the Aware.
And across the Shards, a new force is rising, a shadow from before the Weave itself. Long thought defeated, it soon becomes clear that the sheol were just the vanguard of a much greater terror, one that threatens the very foundations of reality.
Consensus Breaking is the second book of the Auran Chronicles, a dark fantasy adventure series from M. S. Dobing.
