Chronicles of Ave: Vol I | Tomorrow Comes Media

An exciting announcement to make here on Jorie Loves A Story, is the official start of the book tour, for the CHRONICLES OF AVE: VOLUME ONE is MONDAY, 30 September!!  My review goes live on the second-to-last day of the tour! I will be in good company, as there are 3 book bloggers joining me on that day! I first learnt of this book by way of Tomorrow Comes Media, which is a touring company that I am working with to bring tour stops to my blog! Each book they showcase on tour deal with speculative fiction, with a keen focus on science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Mr. Zimmer’s book is fantasy at its finest, as it’s a contribution to Epic Fantasy! This is why it drew my eye to read it and tip my hat to put in a request to review! You may have noticed my leanings towards the fantastical realms by the inclusion of my review of “The Golem and the Jinni” by Helene Wecker. However, what you may not be aware of is my life-long passion for fantasy, and the intricate weaving of epic or as I oft declare it ‘high’ fantasy novels! I’m going to write-up a feature that showcases my passion for this genre during the upcoming bookish (blog) community event: Sci-Fi November, however until then, know that I am drawn into well-built worlds, where the characters have a heap of heart, courage, bravery, and a keen sense of how they can best contribute the world by which they live! This book endeavours to expound on the stories readers are familiar with inside Zimmer’s Fires of Eden series, which are published by Seventh Star Press.

As I mention in my Review Policy, I am not generally akin to reading books out of sequence when it comes to serial fiction, although, I do retain the right to alter my preference as it suits me! And, in this particular case, what attractive me to read a collection of short stories and novellas, of a world already known, is that it would be an inclusive new dimension for me to become acquainted with Fires of Eden! How keen! I am not very well versed in the short-story side of fiction, and I elected to take on this challenge of seeing if I could get the textural and narrative feel for a world I have never encountered!

I elected to participate in this dual-author tour by reading Zimmer’s fantasy short collection verse reading his horror collection entitled “Hellscapes”. I did not feel that I would be as enlightened to read stories that were inspired by Dante’s Inferno, Clive Barker, and Paradise Lost. Likewise, I felt that Mr. Shrewbury’s writings were outside of my reading scope of choice. I am thankful that this tour was flexible to include a diverse book bloggership of readers who could pick and choose which books they wanted to read!
