Fantasy, Lore, & More: The Bell Tolling

Hi, I'm indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and in this episode, Amena Jamali is joining me to talk about her book, The Bell Tolling.

What's it about? 

  • The Blood-soaked Sorcerer tyrannizes the land of Icilia with every form of cruelty imaginable, dying his armor red in the blood of innocents. Crushed to pieces under such savagery, the people of Icilia abandon hope and begin to forget the gifts of civilization that had once been their dearest blessings.

  • In Amena Jamali's The Bell Tolling, Book One of the The Lord of Freedom series, we meet Lucian, the divinely-appointed hero of Icilia and Leader of the Quest of Freedom. Educated in all of the ancient arts, Lucian has the virtue and power necessary to cleanse evil from the land.

  • The Bell Tolling is a haunting new adult fantasy tale of found family, strong heroines, and gentle heroes. 

What's in this episode:

  • Amena Jamali will take us into a world of tyranny, freedom fighters, and restoring lost hope with an excerpt from The Bell Tolling, and we'll explore aspects of that world, like the divine powers and ancient arts. 

  • We'll find out what to expect from The Lord of Freedom series and maybe get some spoiler-free highlights of what's to come, including any updates on Book 2.

  • We'll discuss Lucian's journey from his divine appointment to gathering his companions and embarking on the Quest of Freedom, and discover details about the worldbuilding, character arcs, and themes of the book.

  • Join us in a place where cruel tyranny has crushed civilization, and one hero rises to fight for freedom.

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>
