Genesis of Oblivion Giveaway!

We recently reviewed the first two books in the Genesis of Oblivion Saga by Maxwell Alexander Drake: Farmers and Mercenaries and Mortals and Deities. We thought they were superb novels that the world just didn’t know enough about, so we talked with the publisher, Imagined Interprises Inc, and we’ve worked out a fantastic giveaway to introduce you to the series!

We will be giving away ten copies of the series’ first instalment, Farmers and Mercenaries. Here’s the blurb on the back cover:

In a sleepy farming stead, a young man, Alant Cor, is found to be one of the few Humans who can manipulate the Essence. And, not simply manipulate it. Alant has more power over this magical force than any Human in known history. Does his younger brother, Arderi Cor, possess the same ability, or something more sinister?

Clytus Rillion, the commander of a mercenary troop, embarks on a quest to cure his dying son, Sindian. Though he doubts he will survive the journey, he will pay any price to save his son’s life.

The beast, known only as Klain, born a slave and now used to entertain the masses in a bloodthirsty sport known as the Games, finds out his true value to those who own him lies with his death.

All are resigned to walk the paths fate has put them upon. Yet, is this of their own accord? Or, is an ancient and powerful race, the Elmorr’Antiens, manipulating the other inhabitants of Talic’Nauth? Change is falling upon the Plane. Some Elmorr’Antiens are making preparations to weather the storms ahead – others intend to use the coming chaos to seize power over all the races.

Follow these seemingly unrelated lives as their paths are set on a course that none can hope to survive. Readers of the Genesis of Oblivion Saga will immerse themselves in the depth of a unique world culture, the grandeur of its civilizations, and the sheer awe of more than ninety-six thousand years of history!

To enter, all you have to do is fill out the form below. The giveaway is open internationally and will end on April 4th, 2011, at midnight EST (5:00 AM GMT). If you win, we’ll contact you at the e-mail address you provided for your postal address, and you’ll soon have a package in the mail with your name on it!

Farmers and Mercenaries is truly a fantastic novel, and this will also be the first published work that features a blurb from a Ranting Dragon review — we couldn’t be happier that it’s going on such a great book. You can read the first five chapters of the novel on the series’ webpage, found here.
