New Release: Return of the Luminous One by Larry Ivkovich

Return of the Luminous One Front Cover

It is with great pride and satisfaction, that we announce the release of Larry Ivkovich‘s final instalment of his Spirit Winds Quartet series of novels, Return of the Luminous One. “This has been a long journey,” said Gerry Huntman, Managing Director IFWG, “and Larry was one of our first authors when we published the first of the series, The Sixth Precept. This series grabbed our attention from the start – an urban fantasy with deep roots in Japanese Mythology, action, time-travel, you name it. And a wonderful set of protagonists, centred around Kim Yoshima.”

The final exciting volume in The Spirit Winds Quartet finds Kim Yoshima and her friends, Wayne Brewster, Jenny and Lazo Siboluvich, the sorceress Daiyu, Joe Martin, ArcNight, the shapeshifting felinoid Jaraal, David Amamoto, and the renegade Maghi, Amedio Zaranelli, racing against time to prevent a catastrophe of cosmic proportions.

Same old, same old for Kim.

Except for one thing. The mysterious Void, source of the Spirit Winds, has finally revealed itself, exerting its own numinous influence on the multiverse. It is ancient, profoundly powerful, and frighteningly familiar. But is its purpose for good or for evil?

And what of the Maghi and the demon Orcus? Who is really behind their monstrous evil?

Some will live. Some will die. Some will be forever changed. But, this time, the stakes are much, much higher. For, if Kim and her comrades fail, the multiverse will be irrevocably altered.

Return of the Luminous One is now available in print and ebook format in all good online and print stores.

The first three books in the series:

After returning from her time-traveling adventures in 16th Century Japan, Kim Yoshima finds adjusting to her old life isn’t as easy as she thought it would be. Neither is it for her friends, Shioko Yoshima, Jackson Yamaguchi, and Wayne Brewster.

All suffer trauma of varying degrees, struggling to adapt and reconcile the past and present, and what role they now have in the world.

But, all is not well in the multiverse either. Not every mythological creature torn out of time-and-place by the Spirit Winds was sent back to its own realm. Some still exist in our world and hunger to go home.

To do so, they need Kim Yoshima’s esper powers and will strive to harness them any way they can, even if it means Kim’s death.

And if that isn’t enough, an old enemy of Kim’s makes a startling return.Warriors of the Light full wrap

The cover art and design is by Elizabeth Lang – great work as usual!
