Forthcoming Release: Archsage by Jesse McMinn

IFWG is pleased to announce the upcoming release of the third and last volume in Jesse McMinn‘s Tower series, Archsage. “We picked up the first book in the series back in 2013,” said Managing Director Gerry Huntman, “when Jesse was still in College in Canada. The novel entranced us, as it had a high degree of originality and endearing characters. Six years later we conclude the series with a highly mature work, reflecting Jesse’s own journey in life. We are pleased to have the complete series in April and would encourage all lovers of fantasy to join in this celebration by reading the Tower volumes.”

Kyle Campbell is a vagrant, a traveller between worlds who has found himself trapped in the strange and magical land of Loria. In this world, his power is boundless; but his arrival has attracted the attention of dangerous enemies, and Kyle wants nothing more than to return to the world where he belongs.

After earning the favor of the Buorish king and barely escaping the wrath of twin assassins Lian and Lacaster, Kyle learns the identity of the one person in Loria who can help him find a way back home: a figure forgotten by time, known only as the Archsage.

In order to hold counsel with the Archsage, Kyle and his companions must travel to the very ends of the earth and brave the wilderlands of Westia, the harshest continent on the planet. But they have little choice; Kyle’s homeworld is calling to him, and his time in Loria is running out.

The final chapter of Kyle’s story has begun.

Jesse McMinn is a writer, gamer, and Canadian with a love for fantasy in all of its forms. After graduating from Dalhousie University in the fall of 2014, he embarked on a five-month trip through Europe and Asia. After moving back to his home province of Ontario, Canada, he was married in October of 2018. He currently lives and writes in Toronto, Ontario with his wife, betta fish and crested gecko.

Archsage will be available in North America from 29 April 2019, in ebook and print formats, available through all online and bricks and mortar retailers.

For those of you who haven’t read books 1 and 2, consider joining in the saga.

New Signing: Archsage by Jesse McMinn

IFWG Publishing is delighted to announce the signing of the third and last instalment of Canadian author Jesse McMinn‘s Tower series, Archsage.

We have  had a long association with this talented writer, and in fact Jesse was still in College when he handed his first manuscript over to us. It was a refreshing, innovative approach to epic fantasy as well as parallel worlds. Following the publishing of Loria (book 1), came Trials, which showed Jesse wasn’t a one-hit wonder, and left us all on tenterhooks for the final instalment of the trilogy.

We look forward to releasing Archsage in June 2018.
