The Knife of Truth series written by Cynthia Willerth is a real treat
for today's young science-fiction audience. In the spirit of Dune
by Frank Herbert, she skillfully carries the reader into a plausible
world set in our distant future, which is rich with politics, culture,
lies and mysteries. Inspired by series like The Chronicles of
Narnia, by C.S. Lewis, The Lord of The Rings,
by J.R.R. Tolkien, and the Tamuli by David Eddings,
real and believable characters overcome personal challenges and
hardships; their cultures meet they uncover the terrifying truth.
Readers find that they care about these people. Try out this steampunk classic.

Excitement swirls through the halls at SmatteringsBooks
The long awaited release of A Matter of Honor is out. Like all
classics years of sweat, craftsmanship, polishing
and love fuels this young adult steampunk epic.
The word ancinet in the You Tube video is the correct Danian way of spelling ancient in present day English.

A Matter Of Honor
"He seized the dragon, that ancient
serpent---that is, the Devil, or Satan---and chained him up for a
thousand years. The angel threw him into the abyss, locked it, and
sealed it, so that he could not deceive the nations any more until the
thousand years were over. After that he must be set loose for a little
while." Revelations 20:2-3
and that was years
ago... Since then:
The 1000 year old Battle of the Sistra
Gap, a rainless summer, and a new secret weapon ignite the
wrath. Their souls envision a glorious hole in the 1000 year old Wall
of Delmarath leading to victory. This vision adds fuel to Lance's lust
for revenge, but the horror of it may aid the Delmarthian Lords in
preventing certain destruction. But there's more to the story than just
a flaming wall.
Fear, hope, romance, death, deceit, and broken taboos, keep this sci-fi
steampunk plot spinning.
This story is the first link in the Knife of Truth saga.
