I mentioned this yesterday, but wanted to give it the full attention it deserves. So here’s my official grand announcement:
Someone decided to merge a neo-noir fantasy epic with a Viking saga…and nailed it. And I got to help.
Joshua Unruh is my Marketing Czar at Consortium of Books, and we’ve just completed acquisitions for Saga of the Myth Reaver: Downfall. Here’s the product description:
Noir: Everyday men and women drowning in the murky, corrupt waters of their own flaws.
Saga: Peerless heroes fighting epic battles yet ultimately doomed to fail.
At the crossroads of these two literary traditions stands the Saga of the Myth Reaver.
The Nine Worlds have never seen a hero like Finn Styrrsson. Blessed with an unmatched thirst for victory and the supernatural strength and vigor to slake it, Finn might have been the greatest warrior-king his people had ever known. But he was born the youngest of eight princes with a conniving eldest brother who won’t abide the threat Finn poses to his rule. Despite Finn’s unfailing loyalty, he is forced from his home to forge a new destiny.
Already a powerful warrior and deadly reaver, Finn discovers that he above all others is equipped to kill the monsters, the giants, the myths that besiege Midgard. He becomes the Myth Reaver and a living legend.
Yet despite his prowess and fame–indeed because of them–Finn never wins that which he most desires. He never finds a home. After a lifetime spent battling dread monsters and shining demigods, Finn realizes that in all the Nine Worlds, there is only one enemy whose defeat can give him the renown he so richly deserves.
Whether it’s in search of glory or a glorious death, Finn always overlooks his true enemy. That mistake will be his downfall.
We’d like to start the book off with some positive word-of-mouth, so if the premise sounds interesting and you’d be willing to provide a helpful book review, leave a comment below (with a valid email address). We’ll send free ARCs to the first 100 people who ask.
The book is now live at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Kobo! That means we’re no longer offering the ARC, but you can pick up your own official copy for just 99 cents.
Check it out, and be sure to leave a review!

I would love to read it, looks very promising! And you previous recommendations were so good, so I guess I could write a nive review on this one 😉
Sounds interesting enough to be worth checking out, at the least 😀
I would definitely read this book even with the short description. Finn is obviously challenged in many different areas and I would like to see how the author works Finn through those different trials. The book sounds mysterious and challenging, and Finn obviously has to conquer many different trials in many different guises in this book and I want to know how he (Finn) rises to meet his challenges. There are many distinct arenas for Finn to fight and to realize his possibilities and future.
