"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.

Jean holds a doctorate in Naturopathic Medicine (ND)

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!

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!

“Enough!” Lucian barked, and when Bricker paused and glanced to him questioningly, he said, “I do not know what alarms me more, that you have so many names for cock or what it means in regard to how much time you spend thinking about cock.”
