Shadowmancy Available for Preorder

Hey there, Argonauts!

It’s with great pride that we commence the rollout of our newest title, Jason Franks’ Shadowmancy!

On a mountain that does not exist, there is a school where they teach the impossible.

From his first day at the Academy, things are difficult for Quay. Though he has surrendered his name, like every other acolyte at the magical school, Quay is the son of a disgraced professor, and he finds that his father’s old enemies are already lined up against him–while the professor’s own faction is just as suspicious. Quay refuses to take a side, but as his powers grow it becomes apparent that the damaged young boy may prove a greater threat than his father ever was.

Deep in the Library of Shadows, Quay finds a way to survive his father’s treacherous legacy, but the price is high indeed.

“A strange, mysterious and compelling read told in spookily disconnected first person narrative, delivered by a likeably unlikeable main character. A subtle and dreamlike tale.

–Sam Bowring, author of the Broken Well trilogy

Shadowmancy is Franks’ third novel. It comes replete with a dozen lush illustrations by frequent collaborator Nicholas Hunter, who is also the cover artist. The book is in the final stages of print production and we expect to have it available in time for Halloween–stay tuned for a launch announcement!

In the meantime the ebook is already available for preorder from all the various outlets. Reserve one now and you’ll save a buck on the cover price.
