New Book Release: Island of Gold

Please join me in congratulating Amy Maroney on the publication of her newest historical novel, Island of Gold, the first book in a brand new series, the Sea and Stone Chronicles, taking place on the island of Rhodes in the fifteenth century. I had the privilege of providing Amy with some developmental and copyediting assistance. Here's the book description:

1454. A noble French falconer. A spirited merchant's daughter. And a fateful decision that changes their destiny forever...

When Cédric is recruited by the Knights Hospitaller to the Greek island of Rhodes, his wife, Sophie, jumps at the chance to improve their fortunes. After a harrowing journey to Rhodes, Cédric plunges into the world of the knights—while Sophie is tempted by the endless riches that flow into the bustling harbor. But their dazzling new home has a dark side.

Slaves toil endlessly to fortify the city walls, and rumors of a coming attack by the Ottoman Turks swirl in the streets. Desperate to gain favor with the knights and secure his position, Cédric navigates a treacherous web of shadowy alliances. Meanwhile, Sophie secretly engineers a bold plan to keep their children safe. As the trust between them frays, enemies close in—and when disaster strikes the island, the dangers of their new world become terrifyingly real.

With this richly told story of adventure, treachery, and the redeeming power of love, Amy Maroney brings a mesmerizing and forgotten world to vivid life.

Island of Gold is available now in ebook and print formats on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and visit Amy's website for more information on all of her books, book reviews, and historical blog posts.
