New Book Release : Queen of Monsters

Posted by Rampant Coyote on July 27, 2022

My newest book released this week: Queen of Monsters, the first in a new series called The Vanished. Book 2 should be out before the end of the year.

Queen of Monsters asks: What if some unexplained disappearances in our world–including some of the famous ones, like Amelia Earhart, Harold Holt, etc.–were because they were transported to another world? In a tradition as old as John Carter, what if said individuals were endowed with great power in this new world? How do the people in this fantasy world respond when they have learned to expect a trickle of powerful beings from another world?

As a teen, Aiden Holt studied stories of unexplained disappearances throughout history. He never dreamed he would become one of those disappearances.

Now trapped in an alien world, hunted for his non-functional “special abilities,” Aiden fights to survive against horrific creatures and determined enemies.

Somewhere between certain death and servitude, Aiden seeks an escape—if he can find other “vanished” who beat the odds and survived in this harsh magical world.

Technically, it’s “gameLit,” meaning it borrows elements from gaming. RPG fans should get a kick out of the magic system, but it’s not quite so heavy that non-gamers will be lost. There’s a subgenre called “litRPG” which goes even heavier into the stats and systems of gaming in their game world.

If you want to check it out, the eBook is available now on Amazon, and the paperback will be available soon.
