Then he learns that the girl's father, the Senator, was behind the revolt in China and was using it as a power grab. I am really glad I took the chance and picked up this book and would recommend it to others. It features an engaging storyline that kept me on the edge of my seat and a idea that few authors would have the courage to tackle. Gumroad is great because they will handle all that icky money transaction stuff and it does a bunch of other stuff like keep track of what you have shipped. There wasn't more of his story to wrap up. That's what's in the missing chapter. I also think that this is what has grown most in my writing.
They say he ignored the issue and let it fester, that he stuck Kaneshiro in Japan instead of giving him a bigger role, etc. He soon learns that every aspect of his life so far, including the staged deaths of his parents, has been arranged by the Senate Tribunal in an attempt to mold him into the perfect leader. See, for example, A Song of Ice and Fire. I tried to balance the two by hinting at what was different about the world, but still keep the focus on Caius. If you go back and read some of my very old prompts, many of the characters are pretty bland. I would suggest doing a pre-order type page with a deadline so that you can proceed to step two and keep the account open for a little while because they charge monthly fees. Then I just kept writing and writing until it turned into a 90,000 word novel: Rex Electi! The story is about Caius who is taken from the military and has an opportunity to become Emperor, following him along that path.
I really enjoyed those glimpses, and the fact that we could learn some history and background about Caius' family with the bit in the theatre. The couple of twists at the end of the book all almost happened too quickly to be enjoyed. So that's the plot for the sequel. As part of this, they make kind of 'pre-dowry' gifts to show the Emperor that they're serious about the courtship. This concept stood out because of it's different take on dystopian literature with it's unique world-building and plot design, but it also leaves room for many holes and errors, which is where this book fell. And Caius also really starts to dislike the Emperor at this point for a variety of reasons: corrupt, kind of dumb, etc. There were dozens, possibly hundreds of people present at the trials that could easily alert the world stage in a matter of seconds if they so wanted to, and Kimball made this idea go way too easily.
No matter how good their Ministry of Information is - too many people know about the trials. Thanks for the reply : Another thing I liked about the book is the little glimpses we get into just how messed up the situation with the servants is. I am so pleased to be able to have a copy to put up on my bookshelf well, actually I am going to frame mine but you probably wouldn't do that. He soon learns that every aspect of his life so far, including the staged deaths of his parents, has been arranged by the Senate Tribunal in an attempt to mold him into the perfect leader. It was fun for me to stop and think about where exactly our technologies came from and how many of them were a product of very specific circumstances.
Overall it was a good read, and kept me interested, but needs a bit more refining. I'm hoping to start and finish a novel this year. Success in a series of Trials will reunite him with his family and make him the most powerful man in the world, but failure will lead to a life of isolation and imprisonment hidden in the eaves of the palace. Not sure of all the details in Createspace but you should be able to buy your own book at cost. He soon learns that every aspect of his life so far, including the staged deaths of his parents, has been arranged by the Senate Tribunal in an attempt to mold him into the perfect leader. The concept makes me wonder so much more. And while it is information that the reader would be curious about, it doesn't directly impact the story.
Congratulations, I know this was a long time in the making and I know that a lot of your fans myself included are very proud of this next step in your career as an author. The couple of twists at the end of the book all almost happened too quickly to be enjoyed. While the details surely were there they felt more like a background to me, like a flavour that could be replaced with something else and not really have impacted the story in a major way. The ones mentioned are around New York near the Iroquois which is where Herrennius learned lacrosse , in Florida, and then in the Andes in South America. There are many parts that just give the story away as being self-published. But it was cut because it is just a big dump of information. But I don't quite have everything in place yet I need to get a P.
A lot of the sentences referring to the bad girl spoke of her as a he, etc. There are a few continuity errors in that respect as well. So I promise that future books will be better. I'm also thrilled to have a physical copy of it! This is a place for me to catalog stuff that I have been writing for , and to continue some stories that I have been having fun with! And just to be sure, I added that the few ships that did try never returned, so it was automatically seen as a lost cause. But if the first one didn't get very popular, then that doesn't add much of an advantage. Taking place in a parallel universe where the Roman Empire never collapsed, we see a Chinese pilot named Caius experience corrupted pol This is a book that I've followed and contributed to since it's early development. The worldbuilding was intriguing and efficient, with just enough information to keep me interested but never coming close info dumping.
Yeah, I can see that too. Good read, now to find other books by the same author. I want to learn more about this alternate universe. If it were possible to learn more about the world without slowing the story down, I would want to see that. He soon learns that every aspect of his life so far, including the staged deaths of his parents, has been arranged by the Senate Tribunal in an attempt to mold him into the perfect leader. I just finished it an hour or so ago, that ending was great! There were too many questions left unanswered, and not in the good way that we're used to from big name authors.
Interesting Concept, Needs Refining The basic concept was interesting--what if the Roman Empire never collapsed? The world building is interesting and I would have liked to see more of it. Well, either way can't wait to read it I'm trying really hard to stay off of Amazon and can't wait to potentially have a signed copy. I still love the author's writing prompt stories, but this has been a huge disappointment added on to the fact that I've waited years for this release. Transportation technology seems to be roughly on par with that of our world, so how is it that the discovery of the Americas was delayed so long? The world that's been constructed is similarly well represented and the writing mostly stays clear of large and disruptive expositions. Information about the world is delivered as it becomes relevant to the protagonist and the plot, a style that is reminiscent of Steven Erikssons works but thankfully more forgiving here. Success in a series of Trials will reunite him with his family and make him the most powerful man in the world, but failure will lead to a life of isolation and imprisonment hidden in the eaves of the palace.
I found this book because of a post of Reddit. But they're not gifts to Caius or the Emperor personally; they're like public works for the empire. It was engaging and well written. In the end refuses to marry her fiance and convinces Parliament to repeal the outdated rule that a queen cannot rule alone. Overall, this was fun, enjoyable read about a world that potentially could have happened.
