Author's say her book deals with the realities of a 'diverse society'.
Wizards, monsters, and sword-swinging barbarians - all these familiar fantasy elements can be found in Tyrant Moon, the latest release from Elaine Corvidae. Yet the author says Tyrant Moon goes beyond the purely imaginary to address some of the difficulties of a multicultural society that real-life people must face every day.
Tyrant Moon, published by Mundania Press, has been recently released in international distribution.
"Although the people and places I write about are imaginary," says Elaine Corvidae, "my readers live in the real world. I want to include issues that speak to them."
In Tyrant Moon, a pacifist wizard and a barbarian swordswoman are forced to cooperate in order to stop an evil sorcerer. Although their differences at first seem insurmountable, as the book progresses they come to accept and even respect their radically different customs and beliefs.
Elaine Corvidae is the author of Wolfkin and The Crow Queen.
In the past, she has worked as an archaeologist, administrative assistant, and wildlife rehabilitator. She has authored seven novels and numerous short stories, and currently makes her home in Harrisburg, NC.
Interested nest'izens can order Tyrant Moon from their local bookstores, or purchase online at Mundania.com, Amazon.com, and BarnesandNoble.com.
