I’m pleased to announce that Dawn of Chaos, the first volume in the Sanctum of the Archmage Saga, is being re-released in six novella-length installments over the course of this year. These “episodes” will be available for purchase as e-books here on Andarian Publishing’s new e-commerce website, as well as on the Kobo e-book store.
Episode 1, Prologue to Chaos, has been available since 2019. Episode 2, The Return of the Horde, was released on April 9th. The remaining episodes were published at approximately six week intervals over the following months, both on my website here, and on Kobo.
The final episode, Aftermath, is a “sequel novella” to the first five books. Its release has been delayed, but should be out before the end of the year.
Dawn of Chaos finally brings the award-winning Sanctum of the Archmage role-playing games to the world of fantasy fiction. It is one of two prequel volumes that tells the backstory to the first Sanctum of the Archmage game, The Sight.
A new constitution prepares Carlissa for an era of enlightenment. The harsh traditions of the past fade, and a promise of freedom stirs the air.
In the space of one terrifying day, that promise is shattered in a bloodbath of fire and magic.
In the chaos that follows, the people fight desperately for survival, and wonder bitterly why the gods seem to have abandoned them. Their only hope lies with the magic of the Archmage — and his, with a young princess who never wanted to rule. She must find the strength to set aside her bard’s calling and take up a battle against impossible odds, or surrender her land and people to the Black Magus and his demons.Sanctum of the Archmage: Dawn of Chaos by Tony Andarian
