The Avant Champion: Rising
by C.B. Samet


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


GENRE: Fantasy


~~~~~~~~~~~~~


BLURB:


An EVVY award-winning epic fantasy adventure. When Marrington Castle is overtaken by a dark and ancient evil, Abigail Cross finds herself in the precarious situation of protecting Queen Rebekah. Charged with a quest to summon the Avant Champion, can she save the kingdom or doom everyone to everlasting devastation?

EXCERPT:


I could hear the confused murmurs of the drivers. Then, the dismissive humphs presumably accompanied by dismissive shrugs.

The carriage began to move forward again, encroaching on some dreadful fate. Even as the lanterns around us illuminated once again, I felt engulfed in numbing darkness.

Paul?

The Queen gazed impassively forward, then with a faint disinterested yawn, spoke. “I think we’ll take a walk for the remaining distance. I’ve not stretched my legs all night.”

One of the guards snapped his fingers, and the carriage halted. 



Walk? Out there? With those things?

Despite my quivering knees, I followed the Queen out of the carriage. I had been conditioned over the last several months to follow orders, so it was less of a struggle than it might have been.

When the guards began to follow us, she stopped them with a faint flick of her wrist. “We’re on the castle grounds. We’ll be safe here.”

I wanted to contradict her but my throat seemed to have convulsed shut, the way vocal cords spasm when liquid threatens to erroneously enter the windpipe. It was all I could do just to breathe.

They bowed and climbed back into the carriage.

Floating in a world of confusion, I walked beside her stiff figure. How could we possibly be safe? I started to turn, wanting to look back and see Paul safely sitting in his carriage, though I knew he wasn’t there.

“Don’t,” she snapped in a hushed tone. “Your brother is dead now, and you will be as well if you let on that you saw anything.”

I stiffened, focusing on putting one foot in front of the other while the starry night spun dizzyingly around me. “I don’t understand, mum,” I managed to whisper.

She pursed her lips disapprovingly. “It’s obvious we’re under attack. They are already on the grounds.”

AUTHOR Interview:



Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book?
Adults who enjoy fantasy adventures with strong female leads and a touch of romance with enjoy The Avant Champion series. The books are filled with action, adventure, magic, battles, giants, brownies, man-eating octopi, wizards, ghosts, and romance. If you’re still not sure … book 1 ebook is 99c during my book tour (April through June and the series is available on Kindle Unlimited)

The books are as follows:


The sequence of the series is:

Book 1: The Avant Champion ~Rising~

Prequel: Malakai ~an Avant Champion Story of Malos novelette~ (best read after book 1)
Book 2: The Avant Champion ~Honor~
Book 3: The Avant Champion ~Ashes~
Book 3.5: Brothers’ Bond
Book 4: The Avant Champion ~Conquest~ (release date 7/16/2019)
Book 5: coming 2020

How did you come up with the title of your book or series?
The series is about the making and evolution of a champion and her service to queen and country. The avant comes from avant-garde meaning ‘new and unusual or experimental ideas’ (en.oxforddictionaries.com).

Who is your favorite character from your book and why?
My favorite character in the series is Malakai. I had no idea when I invented him that he would become such a pivotal part of subsequent books. His transformation through the series is fascinating, and his character adds such flavor to the books. He went from supporting case to main character, and, by book five, the future of the world depends on him.

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series:
The books are filled with action, adventure, magic, battles, giants, brownies, man-eating octopi, wizards, and ghosts. What’s not to love?
