Happy Book Birthday: ASHAMET, DESERT BORN by Terry Jackman

“Fascinating…very engaging!” — SFCrowsnest

Ashamet-Cover

A desert world. A warrior nation that worships its emperor as a god. But for Ashamet, its prince, a future filled with danger…

Ashamet is confident his swordsmanship, and his arranged marriage, will be enough to maintain the empire’s peace. But when a divine symbol magically appears on his arm, closely followed by an attempt on his life, he no longer knows who to trust. Worse, the strange attraction he feels toward a foreign slave could be another trap. As events unravel, too fast, Ashamet must find out if this innocent young male is a tool for his enemies–or the magic key to his survival.

“Ashamet, Desert-Born” is a debut adventure fantasy with an exotic Arabian-style setting and elements of same-sex romance.

“Headstrong was the least I knew they said about me. Unpredictable, a wicked sense of humour? Gods, I hoped so.”

A desert world. A population of 100 males to every female. And for Ashamet, its prince, a suddenly uncertain future…

All Ashamet wants is the warrior life he already has. But then a divine symbol appears on his arm, closely followed by an attempt on his life. Now nothing’s simple any longer, even less so when a new and very foreign slave seems shocked by both his new surroundings – and his master’s amorous attentions.

Could this innocent young male hold the key to Ashamet’s survival? And to his heart?

“Ashamet, Desert Born”, is a debut adventure fantasy with an exotic Arabian-style setting and strong elements of same-sex romance.

About the Author 

Terry Jackman is a mild-mannered married lady who teaches (though not in school) and lives in a pretty English village, complete with an ancient stone cross and a duckpond.

Well, that’s one version.

The other Terry may be a surprise to those who only know the first one. Apart from once being the most qualified professional picture framer in the world, and as such responsible for ten years’ worth of articles, guest appearances, seminars, study guides and exam papers, she is also the coordinator of all the British Science Fiction Association writers’ groups, called Orbits, is a freelance editor, and an assistant editor for Albedo One magazine in Ireland.

She wrote her first story in infant school, but only remembers because of the harrowing experience of having to read it out to the class. Maybe that’s why it took a considerable time and a lot of encouragement to get her to do anything like that again.

THE DARK ESSENCE OF RUSSIAN MYTH

As the head priestess of the ancient Solstice cult, Marya must sacrifice a virgin every year. She copes with this gruesome duty by assuming a mask of cold detachment, as her father—the evil tzar Kashchey—devours the maidens’ souls to maintain his youth and power. It is his power alone that keeps Marya’s kingdom safe from all enemies—or so she was raised to believe.

When Ivan arrives on a quest to stop the virgin sacrifices, Marya throws all her magic against him. To maintain her life—and that of her father—she must destroy Ivan before he completes his quest. But can she find it in her heart to do so?

Baba Yaga, Leshy, Vodyanoi, and the ancient animal deities come alive in this beautifully crafted romantic story that will take you into the authentic world of Russian fairy tales—with a dark, sensual twist.
