Anyone ready for a dark fantasy?



Genre; mythology/folktale 
(Quote from the publisher, "Sci-fi /fantasy/mythology/history. Think ancient aliens.") 


Synopsis

The Dragon Court has ruled uncontested for millenia,  bringing knowledge and prosperity to all. The Strongholds of Madayi Kavu, Tartaria, Magan and Shiimti have trained generations of royal children. Ningi has built a line of Ziggurats known as ‘the Band of Peace’ around Magan, protecting those within its borders.

Yet all is not as it seems---far to the West in the land of Undal, mightiest of the nations, the Royal Queen and her children are struck with a mysterious illness and perish. Whispers are that the Dragon Court is responsible, while those in the Temples claimed she had sequestered herself in her chambers, experimenting with dark magic.

A grieving son, trained as a Mulla Xul by Eris herself, swears vengeance. In his quest for truth he will become the greatest threat Tiamut has ever known.

Three Princesses of Magan, sisters by blood, hold the fate of the Dragon Court in their hands

Katrina Sisowath ,(1979--) British-American, born in Frankfurt, Germany. Grew up in South-east Asia and Europe, now lives in England. Mother of 2.5 children (dog thinks he's human), experienced in making brownies.

On a personal level, Katrina is an avid book reader and loves mythology, history, ancient civilizations and anything to do with occult ideologies and practices. Mages, Serpent Priestesses and the 'real' Gods, aka the ANNUNAKI(the prototypes for those we know today in the form of Greek, Roman, Indian and even the Biblical characters) are all addressed on her website, with descriptions of Dragons, consciousness altering drinks and powders and what the scarlet clad priestesses really got up to in their sacred chamber. She also is a guest writer on Ancient Origins, writing about the Serpent Cult, Mystery Schools and their politico-military branches

 Snippet
That evening Rhea was taken to the entrance of the Black Pyramid where she had to make her way through the chambers alone, shedding one piece of jewellery or clothing at each chamber, until she was completely without any protection from the heat of the stones that had soaked in the warmth of the earth, the cold of the air that drifted down from the entrance, or the hardness of the pebbles that littered her path.
The shedding of her garments symbolised the forsaking of her parents and their ways, along with who she was as Princess of Magan. Yet to her it felt more than mere symbolism, it was a severance from all she knew and loved. In the center chamber Rhea met an altar lit softly by a single candle, with only a skull and crossbones placed by its side. Rhea knew she was meant to stay awhile and meditate on the mysteries of life and death, but hoped to steal away, the sense of foreboding was overwhelming, and she who had been born of a dark nature shivered in fear. Two hooded figures came out of the darkness and stood, one on either side of her, not speaking, yet their presence comforted her.

Top ten Favourites 

5 Favourite Things:
1) Books:) I love books, I've always been a bookworm for as long as I can remember. My favourite fictional genre is fantasy and for non-fiction, mythology, history, the occult, philosophy, and psychology

2) Travel. I have a severe case of wanderlust. I love visiting new places and will go to all the ancient sites if I can. I drag my kids to castles and ruins up and down England, though they are still a bit young and complain.

5 Random Facts:

I am British-American. The Brits think I sound American, Americans can't place my accent.

I spent a lot of time in South-East Asia, which has given me an appreciation for other cultures and a love of spicy food.

I studied Mandarin Chinese, but that was a looooooong time ago, so a lot of it is rusty.

I cannot drive a manual car. I've tried many times. Nope. never works out too well.

I am also hopeless on a motorcycle--to my eternal frustration, as it looks so easy
