Rys Rising: Book I by Tracy Falbe

Tracy Falbe spent 15 years crafting 8 novels in her rys fantasy world. In The Rys Chronicles Dreibrand Veta overthrows a Goddess, wins the greatest treasure ever, and then must face a reckoning with the great empire of his homeland that he betrayed. In Rys Rising, Amar rises as the unstoppable warlord of Onja. He conquers great cities and gathers armies to take against the ancient and magical realm of Nufal. Readers worldwide have enjoyed Falbe’s fiction. Derek W. declared “I cannot put your books down.” and Teressa H. said “The Rys are unlike any characters in any other fantasy books I’ve ever read.” Falbe invites you to read Rys Rising: Book I, your gateway to a new reading addiction.

Rys Rising tells of the beginning of the rys, who were born of experimental spells cast by the ancient race called the tabre. The rys are reviled by their creators, and when conflict finally erupts the humans of two civilizations will be forced by their magical masters into an epic conflict. All will be threatened with slavery or death or worse.

  1. Wow, such great advice from Michael for writers like me who have yet to publish their first novel. I’ve written 3 novels, one novelette, and am hoping to publish a novella soon here but I’m sure I still have a lot to learn while writing the next few novels 🙂 Fantastic episode. Listened to the last part of it two times in a row.

  2. So glad to hear this, Dan. Thanks for sharing!
