|The Sword Bearers Book One|
Perhaps the most beautiful cover on the site, South Africa's own Monique Rockcliffe's epic fantasy series "The Sword Bearers" is available at the Independent Paperback Gift Shop.
Exquisitely produced and with a calming, soulful cover, Monique's epic tale would make a fantastic gift for fantasy fans this coming Autumn and Christmas period.
"I'm a fantasy author living in South Africa. My debut novel, The Sword Bearers, is an exciting fantasy adventure that travels across time and space with a vivacious, talented, powerful female hero to lead the way! The Sword Bearers is the first of a series of four books, a truly epic fantasy tale. The Sword Bearer's Journey is Book 2, and Book 3 is to be published soon!
I also have a desire to write Sci-Fi and horror, along with urban fantasy added into the mix!
Stay tuned for short stories published through Kindle soon!"
Monique also constructs a well written and often inspirational blog on WordPress. Here's a sample of her work.
