Breaking a little from the historical allegory to talk about Fighting the High Seas, which is now available on Prolific Works. The fourth installment of the perma-free Neo Skyehawk Series, Neo and Seneca receive word the Tamurian Empire was involved in naval skirmishes off the coast of Eura and Afrikaana and have dispatched warships toward the mysterious Lands Beyond the Western End of Gaia.
Neo and Seneca realize Tamuria’s skirmishes with Ddraigoch allied ships means it’s likely they’ll use the skirmish to justify a ground invasion on allied soil, placing two Ddraigoch allies, Lowerland and Fleming, at risk of an invasion. The duo concludes that while Tamuria will most certainly blame Lowerland for instigating, thus setting off the naval skirmish, it is reported from Neo’s spy that the skirmish occurred in Afrikaana waters, where the Lowerlandic are known to be active traders with the Afrikaana people.
While Neo heads to Lowerland to speak with King Joost, Seneca bolts for Fleming with the help of a most unlikely ally. However, upon arriving in the Flemish capital of Bruss an attack unfolds from Tamurian mercenaries while reports erupt that Lowerland has fallen to Tamurian hands during Neo’s visit.
It’s a time of uncertainty for our medieval heroes and perhaps one of our main characters’ souls is slated to leave Gaia forever while another must find a way to stop the Tamurians’ advance both at home and on the high seas as they set sail for a new world, a world that will someday be known throughout Gaia as Columbia.
The David ap Santos Story
As I mentioned in a post back in March/April, the fifth installment of this series will be following close behind, dubbed the David ap Santos Story. In this story, I mention that it will be an installment of the series where neither Neo nor Seneca serves as the main characters, but instead, David ap Santos takes the main role.
I also said the David ap Santos Story is the one book in both Lord of Columbia and Neo Skyehawk that will connect and give meaning to the relationship of each series, practically unifying the two as Santos plays an active ‘past’ role in Lord of Columbia, which will expand with time.
Fighting the High Seas, however, sets the stage for the David ap Santos Story, especially the very last scene in the book, which also reveals a few origins of the Southpoint Empire and the significance of each and every character in this series to its sister Lord of Columbia Series.
The reader will learn a little about the origins of the elements, the passages of specific boons that are also seen in Lord of Columbia, as well as how such objects would eventually land in the hands of our main characters in Lord of Columbia.
The Neo Skyehawk Series provides the background to Lord of Columbia in both Trilogy I and Trilogy II, completing a tale that spans centuries, if not millenniums.
I’d like to update everyone that I’m actually ahead of schedule with Raven’s Flock, which has let me write a few outlines and drafts concerning Books V and VI in Lord of Columbia. I’m almost certain Raven’s Flock will be headed toward a January 2020 release date, almost approximately two years after I began writing rough drafts of the book in a personal training office at the gym at which I worked back in 2018.
I’m excited to present Raven’s Flock in the coming months and I’ll keep churning out articles that have to do with influences behind the work, which if you’ve been following me over the past month, you’ve seen numerous articles regarding false flags and a flawed century of American foreign policy, which serves as the book’s basis.
A big thank you to all my Freedom Flames and I can’t wait to see what the second half of the year holds.
