For the next stop on the Steel Blood blog tour, I couldn’t miss a visit with my internet doppelganger, author A.M. Justice! We share a love of world-building in our fantasy novels, so she asked me to write a bit about how the city of Limani came to be. A quick look:
But while the British settlements were funded by second and third children of the werewolf nobility, and the massive Roman plantations were supported by corporations led by wealthy Roman vampire lines, the Greek colonists embodied the nature of their origins. These disparate colonists, from multiple Greek cities, maintained the ideals of equality and democracy that linked their alliance back in Europa. The major factor in their favor was that a larger proportion than expected of the original group of colonists consisted of mages from every elemental faction. These were mages schooled in the Greek magical academies held in esteem throughout Europa, looking for adventure and new beginnings.
And it was what saved Limani, in the end.
Go check out the blog post for the full story, and don’t forget to poke around the site while you’re there! A.M. writes amazing epic fantasy with just a touch of intriguing science-fiction thrown in to keep readers on their toes.
Tomorrow, I’ll share some of my favorite and most influential urban fantasy authors with author Sara Dobie Bauer!
