Fantasy, Lore, & More: The Heir

Fantasy, Lore, & More: The Heir

Hi, I’m indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and in this episode, Claudia Klein is joining me to talk about her book, The Heir.

What’s it about? 

  • In this epic fantasy, royal sisters are separated by war as hatred divides two princes. To stop darkness from destroying their world, they must find a way to unite. Disguised as a boy, Kat is captured by the Erlingue crown prince. They form an unlikely alliance against his evil brother, the new king. But darker forces are at work, and Kat's sister is now in peril.

  • The Heir is an immersive, gripping fantasy perfect for fans of divided loyalties, unlikely alliances, and high-stakes darkness. 

What’s in this episode:

  • Claudia Klein will transport us into her vivid fantasy world with an excerpt from The Heir, and we’ll explore the creative worldbuilding and characters.

  • We’ll discuss Kat's journey from princess to disguised soldier forced into a tenuous alliance with the enemy prince.

  • We’ll find out what inspired this fresh take on fantasy royalty and magical darkness. 

  • Join us in a place where war divides but hope remains, and light still flickers against the spreading shadows.

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>
