A fascinating epic fantasy series that takes you to a primitive planet ... but there is spaceships too. Science Fantasy at it's best.
Prince of the Fallen by M. H. Woodscourt
Raised by ghosts. Trained by gods. How far will he go to save those who betrayed him?
Abandoned in the wilderness, Lekore lives with ghosts and fallen gods, until his efforts to rescue a traveling princess and her entourage bring him into a civilization unlike anything he’s ever known.
Caught in a net of silk and secrets, Lekore finds himself ensnared by court intrigue, midnight assassins, and a deviant faction of the Church of the Sun Gods—all thirsting for his blood.
He just wants to find the man who deserted him, until a storm rises out of the north, furious enough to destroy the city and outlying lands. Now Lekore must find the source of its wrath, deep in the wilds of the deadly Lands Beyond, if he can flee a city that won’t let him escape.
Prince of the Fallen is the first book in the Sentinel Seer series. It starts off with tragedy and along the way gives you hope. Woodscourt eloquently weaves a beautiful story of hidden royalty, mystery, and even a little sci-fi into this unique story.
The war between the Kel and Tawloomez may at first mislead the readers to choose sides because Woodscourt does an excellent job telling the story from a limited third person perspective that may color the readers perspective. But it is through the eyes of the protagonist, Lekore, that the truth is revealed.
While this epic fantasy isn't dark, it does explore some dark themes, such as slavery and religious sacrifice that some readers may not enjoy. The author warns readers of this and suggests to skip chapter twelve of the book. Despite the warning the chapter is heart wrenching, but Woodscourt handles the situation tactfully without gory details. Honestly, it does make the reader see through the eyes of someone they may not agree with which is an important life skill. So read at your own discretion.
I would recommend this book to both fantasy and sci-fi readers that love clean reads. It's a fantastic space fantasy.
I can't wait to read the next book! Thankfully, the entire series is already waiting for me to dive into.

The Progenitor Chronicles
Time Crystals are forbidden for a reason, but King Oren must use one to save a civilization.
King Oren’s only goal was to be a peaceful caretaker of the galaxy. But when a girl falls through a portal into his courtyard clutching a forbidden Time Crystal, his life changes.
With a cataclysmic event imminent, he must lead a group from his home system to the opposite side of the galaxy. Everyone looks to their seemingly immortal race for aid, but even with their elemental powers, they are far from perfect.
Armed with the Time Crystal, they seek to stop an exploding star from decimating an entire population. The problem is, he doesn’t know how to use the crystal. Even worse, he might die trying.
Will King Oren stop the star from exploding? Or will time unravel?
