MVmedia Releases Abengoni: First Calling, the new epic fantasy novel by Charles R. Saunders

Sword and Soul originator and Sword and Sorcery master Charles R. Saunders storms back onto the literary scene with an new epic fantasy sure to become a classic. 
 
Matile Mala, once the most powerful empire in the black continent of Abengoni, is slipping slowly into decadence, and becoming more and more vulnerable to aggression from the nations and tribes it once dominated. In the capital, Khambawe, ancient rituals endure, dominated by dreams and delusions.  As Tiyana, who is both priestess and princess, conducts one such ceremony, known as First Calling, the rite is disrupted by the arrival of a half-wrecked ship from Fiadol, a far-distant land across the sea that is almost forgotten by the Matile. Led by a Seer called Kyroun, the pale-skinned people on the ship seek refuge among the Matile.
 
But the Matile themselves are in need of aid, as they soon come under attack from their ancient enemies, the Uloans, who have flourished while the Matile waned. Along with her father – the High Priest Gebrem –Tiyana marshals the waning forces of Matile magic in conjunction with the powerful new sorcery wielded by Kyroun and his followers in an effort to forestall the threat of imminent annihilation.
 
As the Matile and Uloans clash, other foes of the fading empire wait on the sidelines, like vultures circling a battlefield. The newcomers from Fiadol hold the balance of destruction – and Tiyana must anticipate which way the scale will tip …
 
"Don't miss out on this magical novel by one of the godfathers of Afrofuturism and black speculative fiction--Charles Saunders."
 --Tananarive Due, American Book Award winning author of THE LIVING BLOOD
 
"In Abengoni: First Calling, Charles Saunders writes the sort of epic fantasy I want to read. He tells the tale, with its large cast of sharply drawn characters and complex history, in a wonderfully spare and fast-paced style that doesn't waste time getting to where it's going. I can't wait for the next book."
--Fletcher Vredenburgh, Sword and Sorcery Blogspot

Thanks again Milton.  I'll have to include information about Saunders' new book in our next eNewsletter.  Do you have a preferred book seller?

Thanks, Troy! Online I prefer people purchase directly from me at www.mvmediaatl.com, but all my books are available through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. As far as bookstores I would say any bookstore because my books are distributed through Ingram. You'll have ask and order though.
