Trials and Tribulations banner

This is my stop during the book blitz for Trials and Tribulations, these are two anthologies set in Faith Hunter’s Rogue Mage universe. This book blitz is organized by Lola’s Blog Tours. The book blitz runs from 20 February till 5 March. You can view the tour schedule here.

TrialsTrials (Rogue Mage Anthology #1)

By Faith Hunter, Diana Francis, Misty Massey, Lou J Berger, Ken Schrader, Spike Y Jones, Christina Stiles, Tamsin Silver and Melissa McArthur

Genre: Anthology/ Urban Fantasy

Age category: Adult

Release Date: November 28, 2016

Blurb:

21 Vignettes and Short Stories set in Faith Hunter’s World of Thorn St. Croix.

The Rogue Mage world began long ago, when the epic battle between the High Host and the Darkness was won and lost. TRIALS takes fans of Thorn St. Croix into the past, before the opening pages of BLOODRING. These stories, set in Faith Hunter’s Rogue Mage world, are adventures with new characters and old, facing dangers unimaginable. And they must save the world all over again.

If you ever wondered what happened between seraphs, kylen, second-unforeseen, mages, seraph-touched, spawn, humans, dragons, and their creatures before the series, now is your chance to delve deeper and wider. TRIALS features new short stories from nine authors—including Faith Hunter—and vignettes from the Rogue Mage role playing game.

TRIALS will be followed soon by TRIBULATIONS, and then by the omnibus TRIUMPHANT.

TRIALS Authors: Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, Lou J Berger, Ken Schrader, Spike Y Jones, Diana Pharaoh Francis, Christina Stiles, Tamsin Silver, Melissa McArthur.

TRIBULATIONS Authors: Faith Hunter, Jean Rabe, Spike Y Jones, Christina Stiles, and Lucienne Diver.

17 Vignettes and Short Stories set in Faith Hunter’s World of Thorn St. Croix

The Rogue Mage story began with the post-apocalyptic novels BLOODRING, SERAPHS, and HOST, when epic battles between Thorn St. Croix and the forces of Darkness were fought. TRIBULATIONS (Rogue Mage Anthology Vol. II) takes place during and after the series timeline. These stories and vignettes, set in Faith Hunter’s Rogue Mage world, are adventures with new characters and old, facing Darkness and an uncertain future.

The relationships between seraphs, kylen, second-unforeseen, mages, seraph-touched, spawn, humans grow deeper, and the battles with dragons and their creatures grow more dangerous. TRIBULATIONS features new short stories from five authors—including Faith Hunter—and vignettes from the Rogue Mage role playing game.

TRIALS and TRIBULATIONS will soon be followed by TRIUMPHANT—the paperback omnibus (both Anthology Volumes I and II in a bound format).

TRIBULATIONS Authors: Faith Hunter, Jean Rabe, Spike Y Jones, Christina Stiles, Lucienne Diver.

Interview: 

1. What was it like to play in the Rogue Mage world?

It was wonderful and amazing. A clever, deep world that I envy, It touches on dark and light and the shades in between. And it has magic. Oooooooh!


2. Was it hard to develop your character within the confines of the Rogue Mage world?

I came up with the idea right away…someone from a convent, who had religious schooling, and yet was at odds with it. A thief of sorts, but one who steals from the ground and the past rather than people. A cross between a junk man and Indiana Jones…and who likes to use explosives. I made her feisty and quick and more than a little selfish. I threw in a touch of a scholar. One of my favorite books is Norton’s compilation of Old English literature. It gave me an opportunity to quote from that. She fit in well with the world because the place Faith created has all sorts of opportunities to relic-hunt.


3. Tell us about your character.

Oops…I just did! I’ll mention my day walker…he’s beholden to the cartel that controls the jungle, but he becomes sympathetic to my main character and sees her as his way to get out. Too, he’s got magic and loves Old English literature. They get along.


4. When your story was finished, how did you feel about your character and story?

I was floating! I got to play in Faith Hunter’s world! So…I was floating. 


5. Tell us about your other projects.

I’m working on the second book in my Piper Blackwell mystery series. This one is called The Dead of Night…and I need to finish it by the end of February. Cross your fingers I get it done.
