I saw a bunch of these threads a while back and wanted to challenge myself to try it but was too busy at the time. So here we are now.
A little about my book:
It is epic / character based fantasy, written in dual pov third person past
Empire of Lies is thematically about how a world that takes relegion to the extremes might look like, and also about morally grey choices.
wip blurb where focus is only on one of the two MCs. The other MC is the new Vessel.
A dead Goddess.
A dwindling Army.
An empire built on lies.
When majority of her gang is arrested for the murder of a Goddess, SARA barely manages to escape. Together with two other leaders, she must govern the remaining members and save the captured from certain death. The only way forward is to prove the captured innocent—by finding out the person who framed them, and bringing the true criminals to justice.
She must conduct her own investigation at the scene of the crime – the temple of the Commander Goddess . The temple hides many secrets, though, secrets of her past, and secrets that could topple the empire, and confronting them is the only way to save her family—and maybe even the empire.
She must keep up the ruse of being a loyal servant and handmaiden of the newly appointed vessel to the goddess, who might be the only person to break past Sara’s lies and see into the truth of her past, and who she really is.
But will the Vessel keep Sara around once she knows what Sara has done? And can they handle the truth of who truly killed the Goddess?
In Ārya, ‘truth’ is a castle of lies.
Ask me anything about the world and characters, and I will answer it when I get time!
