Welcome to Lizzyland, Ed! Today’s feature, “The Sable City,” is an epic fantasy novel by M. Edward “Ed” McNally. Ed and I are both members of the Indie Eclective, a guild of nine authors who support each other and write awesome books. Ed is The Brain – just ask him anything. He knows more trivia than everyone else (combined) that I know!
Tilda Lanai has trained for years to take her place among the Guilders of the Miilark Islands, but now the Trade House she is to serve is imperiled by the absence of a legitimate Deskata heir. Scenting blood in the water, rival Houses begin to circle. The desperate search for an exiled heir takes Tilda across a war-torn continent and to the gates of the Sable City, where centuries ago dark magic almost destroyed the world. Along with a sinister sorceress, a broken-hearted samurai, and a miscreant mercenary long on charm but lousy with a crossbow, Tilda must brave the demon-infested ruins. Only then can she find John Deskata, who may not want to be found at all.
About Ed: M. Edward McNally is a North Carolinian of Irish/Mexican extraction. Grew up
mostly in the Midwest along the I35 corridor (Kansas, Iowa, Minnesota), and now resides in the scrub brush surrounding Phoenix, AZ, where the scorpions and the javelinas play. Masters in English Lit from ISU and Russian/East European History from ASU, though both date from an earlier era when there was a lot of Grunge on the radio and Eddie wore entirely too much flannel, even in the summer.
