Hello, and welcome! My name is Stephen Chamberlain, and I’m thrilled to announce Troubador Publishing will soon release my debut fantasy novel, Graëlfire. About the book:
A centuries-old quest
A feud spanning universes
A life in the balance.
University student Lena Dubois is dying. Her only hope of survival is a centuries-old quest for the lost secret of the Cathars. When the past collides with the present, Lena becomes embroiled in a cosmic vendetta where malevolent forces eight hundred years in the making propel her to a deadly showdown.
Graëlfire is an intriguing new twist on the quest for the Holy Grail. Based on the medieval myth of the Grail as a stone that fell from Heaven, the story is set in present-day Switzerland and thirteenth-century Occitania within a fictional cosmos where universes emerge from the cosmic soup of graëlfire, the source of all Creation.
A fantasy thriller for adults, it is a story of loss and discovery, courage and betrayal, forbidden love and revenge.
While remaining true to Grail quest tradition, this modern re-telling introduces a fresh setting, an alternative mythos and a new array of fantasy characters for readers to explore.
I hope you will like reading Graëlfire as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Stay tuned for further news. While finishing the sequel, I will post more about the book and the inspiration behind it.
