WPR gets an early peek at the new cover for Stephen Zimmer’s third book in The Rising Dawn Saga, then we read what this series is all about and slap ourselves for overlooking it.

I knew that Stephen Zimmer is an amazing writer of Epic Fantasy but I had known and for some reason not taken the time to dive into his other series, the urban fantasy Rising Dawn Saga. Right now The Seventh Throne is available in limited edition hardcover. Though, if you haven’t picked up the series, you should just get all three (first editions) on the site too in hardcover. Yes, I’m a geek for tech, but I still love hardcover books, plus. They’ll be worth something when Stephen’s (who I believe is on the cusp of breaking out big time) books get more attention and these first editions run out.

The awesome Matthew Perry done cover for this book looks cool, and there are eight whole page illustrations that will be dispersed through the book. I love the artwork that Perry does for the books at Seventh Star Press, they do an excellent job of placing a picture just where it needs to be to help fuel your imagination. It’s really something I wish other publishers would start picking up on. It really adds to the whole package of a story and if done right can really make a scene pop in your mind that makes it hard to forget.

Here is a rundown of what this series is all about, I think it is a definite read for all of you fans of fantasy books:

Readers who have been journeying along in the Rising Dawn Saga will need
to hold on to their seat, as a conflict of cosmic scope escalates rapidly.
They will join the human soul Friedrich as he accompanies the powerful
Avatar Enki into the depth of the Abyss, to discover the fate of
Erishkegal, who crossed the Veil to spare a horde of outcast Nephilim ages
ago. It is a quest that will take them to the brink of hell itself, but
it is one that may hold astounding revelations.

Elsewhere, martial law is installed across the UCAS during the outbreak of
a deadly virus, and the onset of a war to the far east that threatens the
stability of the entire world. The imposition of a diabolical technology
looms, as centuries-old organizations in the service of Adonai race to
confront the looming menace.

Gregory Andreas, an ex-marine, leads a budding resistance to the
authoritarian government, as Dagian Underwood, the mastermind behind the
oncoming Living ID technology, reaches out to the dark realm of Set to
gain the help of an ally with a rare, formidable ability. Seth Engel and
his teenaged friends venture forth once again to seek proof of spreading
rumors; this time of rounded-up townspeople being herded into large
detainment facilities close to Godwinton.

Even the shapeshifting An-Ki are caught in the maelstrom of uncertainty,
as Godral and their others of Sargor’s clan struggle to find their place
in the strange modern world, and Uria leads his renegade new clan into the
unknown. His path leads to an encounter with a mysterious individual
possessed of supernatural powers; who expresses the desire to be his
guide.

Threads intertwine as the dangers increase, and nowhere is safe as the
things of the material and non-material worlds clash. The Seventh Throne
will leave the reader hungry for the next installment, after a revelation
of tremendous magnitude culminates the latest Rising Dawn Saga adventure.
