For those that may not know, Kindra Sowder is at it again. I honestly don’t know when she has time to sleep. Maybe she doesn’t. It wouldn’t surprise me the way she’s able to find the time to work a full-time job, work on obtaining her Master’s Degree, being the President and CEO of Burning Willow Press, LLC, and publishing so many books. And she has to put up with that husband of hers Edd Sowder (just joking Edd, don’t kill me). Edd is the editor of Animus which tells you how brave he is to tell his wife what mistakes she’s made with her new book. This isn’t meant to be a wife/husband joke. Kindra is the author behind the Miss Hyde novellas. Enough said.
As a friend/employee/fan/reader/editor of Kindra’s I can inform you that if you pick up one of her books you won’t be disappointed. Without further ado, let’s kick off this reveal of Kindra’s newest Young Adult Post-Apocalyptic Fantasy novel from CHBB titled Animus!
General Quinn Ragnarok is a lot of things. Fierce. Dedicated. Intelligent. Skilled. And one of the only women to become a General within the Sentinel of Hydra, sworn to serve the Dominion of Archer’s State as a warrior against those who would dare rise against them. Her beloved dragon, Apep, is bonded to her not only in battle, but in their existence. A bond not taken lightly, for dragons from beyond the Long Realm of the Channel are among the most intelligent, extremely powerful, and do not bond easily with humans.
Betrayal is just around the corner, with the conspirator being one of her own, and war is imminent as proof of betrayal must be presented to the Council. She must rise to the Council’s wishes to fight against the Royals of Paderborn alongside her lifelong friend, Private Victor Shroud. Not only a soldier, but her trusted ally.
Will Quinn have the ability to lead her garrison to war, ensuring victory? Or will she fall to their sword?
Animus is a new high fantasy novella from award winning author, Kindra Sowder. Delve into this new tale and immerse yourself into a realm where war is coming, Halflings are controlling the forests with swords and arrows, and the skies are filled with dragons.
