I utterly adore the covers for my German books. My ancestors came from there and now my high fantasy is available in their language. http://www.pjballantine.com/
First review of Harbinger! 'The story was completely riveting – much along the scale as the earlier three books. On its own merits, it is a worthy tale full of excitement and action. However, as the crowning jewel of an epic tale, it is extremely successful.'
Release day! Harbinger the final in the Books of the Order series is now out.
First stop in the Harbinger blogtour. Lots of fun questions AND a recipe for The Rossin’s Revenge
The German edition of Spectyr (Divine Vengeance ) Coming in February 2014
(German edition of Geist, August 2013) Die Runen der Macht: Der verfluchte Prinz: Amazon.de: Philippa Ballantine, Michaela Link: Bücher
It takes a lot for a fantasy writer to create a world with its own rules, characters and society to pull the reader in smoothly without requiring a huge prologue full of history and politics and I must say Philippa has pulled this off spectacularly well.
In the Beginning by Philippa Ballantine. This 99c short story is set in the world of the Deacons of the Order, before the time of the novels, Geist, Spectyr, Wrayth and Harbinger. It tells the story of the first day of the Break, when the undead come in the world of Arkaym, and the horror they bring with them. One small village is caught in the chaos of that day. Some will live, and some will find new purpose.
