"Richly set and beautifully told, Carlson paints a story filled with love, lust, and tragedy. She captures the tortured emotions of temptation and desire perfectly and leaves you wanting more." - Chris Patchell, author of In the Dark

“Like George RR Martin and Joe Abercrombie, Carlson writes in the fantasy genre for grown-ups, with flair and elegance. A complex world with characters that develop well, The Kingsmen Chronicles reveals as it builds!” - Daniel F., Amazon Review

Jean Lowe Carlson blends deep wisdom, fast-paced adventure, and timeless discovery into exquisite fantasy. Her raw worlds are reminiscent of George RR Martin, Robert Jordan, Joe Abercrombie, Clive Barker, and Robin Hobb.

Yes, I'm planning at least 9 total novels in the Kingsmen Chronicles series, plus a host of other books set in that world. This first series is present-day, then we'll have a prequel series that explores Khehem and the reign of the tyrant King Leith Alodwine a thousand years before the events of the KC. Then, we come back to the present for a third series that wraps up the storylines of Elohl et al. I'm also planning at least three one-off satellite novels about various historical characters, and considering a trilogy about the Giannyk-Albrenni wars. I'm just getting started. Lots more to come!

Thanks for your question. My books are definitely written for adults, not teens or YA. There are a few on-screen sex scenes throughout the series, which includes nudity, though they're important to character development. Also, these books have a lot of cussing, because most of the characters are soldiers in the Queen's army. Hope that helps! Jean(less)

It’s April! Where is GOLDENMARK?

 

Hey Fantasy Fans – I know, you’ve been missing The Kingsmen Chronicles!

 

Not long ago, I promised you that GOLDENMARK, book #3 of The Kingsmen Chronicles, would be released in March.

 

But what has occurred between then and now? Ch-ch-ch-changes! (To quote the beloved David Bowie)

 

Life has been moving, and I’ve moved with it – from Salem, OR to Boulder, CO!

Hi Holli, thanks for your question! Due to a publishing change, I've had to take the series down from Nook, iBooks, etc and make it Amazon-exclusive for now. Not sure if it will stay that way long-term, but that's the situation at the moment. You can See Full Answer
