Lovers of high epic fantasy can now get their hands on Joyce Gee's novel Magic of Lies and begin their journey into Tir.
Joyce Gee, from Mandurah, Western Australia, is celebrating the launch of her epic high fantasy, Magic of Lies, an epic fantasy rife with flirty elves, court intrigue, and a newly coronated queen determined to lead her own way. Magic of Lies of The Altira Series is the first book of six. Magic of Lies is available in paperback, hardcover, and ebook formats.
When asked about her series and what makes it different, Joyce has this to say, “My target audience is primarily lovers of high and epic fantasy. But I’ve aimed to make it an easier read, hoping to appeal to people who want to read the genre but find themselves intimidated by the bigger reads. Fantasy romance readers may also enjoy it, as there’s a bit of that going on. There’s plenty of swearing, discussions about sex, fighting, torture, war, and more than a few deaths. A lot of my characters are bisexual at a minimum.”
Because of Gee’s approach to the genre, Magic of Lies gives readers the much-needed revamp they’ve been looking for. Gee’s writing style, wit, and world-building make you forget it’s an epic fantasy and takes you on an exhilarating, stereotype-bending journey through Tir. Princess Eirian tries to balance a newly inherited kingdom, three gorgeous men competing for her attention, and the rumblings of war that could endanger the people and kingdom she has sworn to protect—all while trying to hide her ever-growing magic from the people she’s tasked with leading.
About Magic of Lies:
Princess Eirian Altira has always walked on a knife’s edge with flowers chasing her footsteps. Born with magic, she struggles to balance her ability to give life with the desire to kill. Raised by mages, the day comes when she must return home to a kingdom she left as a child, and a father she has not seen in 20 years. Surrounded by a strange court with expectations she was not prepared for, Eirian hides her magic until she’s faced with the choice between becoming queen or returning to the mages.
With secrets around every corner and war with a neighboring kingdom on the horizon, Eirian discovers her power means more than she realized. As does her long-standing friendship with the crown prince of the elven nation they’ve been allied with for generations. But the whispers in her mind and the rumors spreading through her court threaten everything Eirian holds dear, and she will do anything to protect the ones she loves.
With assassination attempts and rumors of war, Eirian proves to those around her that she is not one to hide from confrontation. Even when it risks her life.
