The Black River Chronicles
Summer of Fire (The Black River Chronicles Book 1) It is a Time of Legends,
It is a Time for Heroes,
It is Time for Last Stands
To speak of a time before the Summer of Fire, a time truly before the cacophony of events that chose to confluence in those short months, is to speak of a time more than four hundred years gone by.
Very few have a genuine understanding of what lead to the time known as the Summer of Fire, of the rising powers that had grown with the patience of mountains, over centuries. Only in looking back could scholars completely understand the full scale of events that preceded it.
It is particularly difficult to distinguish what came 'before', as this is a relative term. Each individual will have a point in time that they consider to be the time 'before', after which their life will have irrevocably changed. General consensus suggests that by 1099 AC it was already too late.
But for some, it started long before that. For some of them will live, some of them will die, and some of them will last forever.
The Winter That Follows (The Black River Chronicles Book 2) The Summer of Fire has burned away. The younger gods and their champion have defeated Krynok the Hunter, General Salamander has been destroyed, and slowly Tartaria is reuniting to heal the Clans and the land.
The world has been left dazed and flattened, trying to pick up the pieces. Those who survived find themselves standing amongst the ruins with empty hearts, waiting for faces they will never see again. It has not occurred to many that this might be the greatest challenge of all.
For once the glorious struggles of the Summer are over, they will have to find their way through the Winter That Follows.
The Freetown Bridge (The Black River Chronicles Book 3)
Any who believe the Freetown Bridge to be a monument to freedom have sadly misjudged the dark intent of the Frisian Inquisition. Thousands of slaves have been snatched to help with its construction, and the fears of its purpose are building across the continent.
Shrouded in mystery and heavily guarded, the Bridge nears completion. Unable to stop themselves, a small group of adventurers from the renegade City State of Aberddu seek to join those who would destroy it. A ragtag gang of mercenaries, priests and greenskins prepare to stand up to the might of the Red Inquisition, before they discover that the enemy is closer than they realised.
The Freetown Bridge is the third book in L.G. Surgeson's epic fantasy series, The Black River Chronicles.
LG Surgeson is a writer and teacher who lives in a cottage with a garden full of fairies by a river in the middle of Wales. She lives with her long-suffering partner and their two cats. They like Mid-Wales because it's better than the real world. She writes in the time she creates by avoiding the housework. The cats like to help. They aren't very good at it.
LG writes a lot. She writes novels, blog posts and articles. She believes it's important to write about what you know so the novels she writes are either fantasy adventures or semi-autobiographical stories about teachers. Both are equally believable. She also writes blog posts and articles about things that she would rant about if anyone would listen. Mostly, these are on the subject of education, mental health and sexuality.
In the real world, LG pretends to be a responsible adult well enough that someone has employed her as a maths teacher. She teaches maths in a special school for learners with emotional and social difficulties that lead to challenging behaviour. When she's not doing that, and has been prised away from the keyboard, she likes to poke about her garden upsetting the fairies.
Never make LG laugh, you'll end up being quoted in a novel.
