Fantasy, Lore, & More: Smoke and Light

Hi, I'm indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and in this episode, Kristin Ardis is joining me to talk about her book, Smoke and Light.

What's it about?

  • In a kingdom torn by war, Khara desperately seeks to restore memories lost in a rebel attack - a quest made more urgent by her duties as the future Sovereigna ruler. Haunted by dreams of a mysterious grove that may hold the key, she risks venturing beyond the city walls into rebel territory. But the shadows conceal sinister secrets that could unravel Khara's fragile life and the kingdom itself.

  • Smoke and Light is an epic fantasy filled with mystery, high stakes, and inner turmoil.

What's in this episode:

  • Kristin Ardis will immerse us in her war-torn fantasy realm with an excerpt from Smoke and Light, delving into Khara's inner conflict.

  • We'll discuss the challenges of world-building a kingdom divided by war and rebellion. 

  • We'll explore Khara's emotional journey to reclaim her memories despite the costs.

  • Join us in a place where love, loyalties, and lies blur the line between truth and deception.

Epic Fantasy Adventures with Melinda Kucsera
I am Melinda Kucsera, an indie fantasy author and I narrate chapters from my adventure books, talk about other fantasy books and shows and try my best not to get derailed by the shenanigans of characters who are supposed to be fictional, but they don't stay within the pages of my books. I tell all their secrets and what trouble they get into in between books. Support this podcast: <a href="" rel="payment"></a>
