Description

This heartbreaking dark fantasy about bliss and submission, in the style of Jacqueline Carey, terrifies and elates with dark lust. Pious Phillip seeks redemption via the lash, for scourging causes his blessing and his curse, the shedding of tears that create bliss in the world. And only when he is driven from his church into the uncompromising arms of Oruthane, a lover who understands pain and peaceful obliteration through domination, does Phillip truly understand himself. But when the two are exposed, can their life of intimate decadence and loving wisdom transcend harrowing ordeals? Or will it break them apart, scourging their souls forever?

This dark fantasy romance from new award winning fantasy writer Jean Lowe Carlson explores sacrifice and love via sex and magic, in the style of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel Series and Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series. With a deep storytelling style similar to Patrick Rothfuss’ Kingkiller Chronicles and a flavor of fairytale magic, the Three Days of Oblenite dark fantasy trilogy is typical of Ms. Carlson’s style, of writing complex and emotional fantasy and sci fi for adults.

A top award winning fantasy book for 2016, Tears won a Finalist medal in the 2016 Next Generation Indie Book Awards.

“This book spins a web of emotions and wishes, between past and present, the characters you meet and the reader himself. I was sucked in and I could feel with Phillip and the other characters, and understand their suffering as much as their joy.” - Ajumi, Goodreads Review
