Why you must read Brad McDowell’s Arcane Savant
Arcane Savant: Black Sand Storm was my attempt at telling a story about a kid who is part of a world ending Prophecy but he just wants to live his own life. No one wants to be the bad guy and in most cases the real world villains we know so well are heroes in their own mind. The book takes place in the first week that his life really starts to ramp up to bring him to that point.
So he’s the bad guy?
We’ve got to ask again: he’s the bad guy?
Who’s this book aimed at?
As far as simple enjoyment, I figure anyone who lives swords and horses fantasy will get one hell of a kick out of the book. Hell, this one doesn’t even start with a boy on a farm!
We haven’t asked what genre it is.
Tell us about our “hero”.
When expelled due to ‘unproven necromantic events’ he sets out with a friend to get his mind off the failure. The reputation of his mother carries ahead of him as she is the prime general of the queens army.
With her reputation and the stories of his father the dragon hunter, he has a pair of massive shoes to fill. It gives his will to be a true mage more weight in his life day by day.
Have you written any other books that we should read next?
That’s impressive. How did you get to this point?
After having many many conversations with indie authors I cranked out my first book.
