Why you must read Tyrean Martinson’s Champion in the Darkness
Clara’s ready to become a master swordswoman. When she goes to meet with longtime mentor Dantor, Clara is told she’s destined to become the Champion, a fabled hero who arises in a time of need. Confused by this claim, Clara isn’t sure she’s ready to be a Champion.
Whether Clara is ready or not, the evil Kalidess has wormed her way into Septily’s court.
Clara is aided by another mentor, Stelia, whose knowledge of their enemy is both a bane and a blessing. As evil threatens their land, Clara and Stelia must find the strength to overcome the darkness.
We’re guessing this is fantasy fiction.
Champion in the Darkness is Young Adult Christian Fantasy
Christian? Who will it appeal to?
Christian fantasy fans looking for an active heroine with a heart of faith, sword fights, griffins, magic, and a battle between good and evil.
Tell us a little more about Clara.
Fun-loving but determined to serve her faith and her people, Clara feels unprepared to become the next Champion of Septily and Aramatir. Her training has prepared her, but she still doesn’t feel ready to be serious all the time as a Champion. She loves her family and friends, swordplay and bouts. All of her life, she has dreamed of becoming a Sword Master, and she’s trained as hard as she can … when she isn’t playing pranks or running footraces with her best friend, Salene. She’s not happy sitting still in a classroom learning about tactics, but she does love an epic story about the past Champions of Aramatir. She enjoys music, singing, and dancing, but she’s afraid she won’t have time for those things as a Champion.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I’m a daydreamer, and a Christian who believes that God gave me an imagination for a purpose. I’m also a wife and mom, and my family life is very important to me. I like to sing, dance, ski, read, bicycle, and laugh.
Have you written any other novels that we can check out later?
I have a collection of imaginative short stories and poems called Dragonfold and Other Adventures, which includes several fantasy and scifi stories about heroes and heroines. Currently, I’m working on the next Champion book, Champion in Flight.
