Product Description

Product Description

It started with a simple dream for Simon: join the legions, escape a life of mediocrity, and bring respect to the family name. A border incursion by restive Scentari barbarians looked like that opportunity for an artist turned soldier to transcend his roots, and fight for the glory of the Pazian Republic. Or so it seemed.

The return of dark magic, thought to be the stuff of myth and legend, turns a simple mission into a brutal slaughter, and Simon must warn the Senate of the unimaginable defeat. But a mysterious sculptress shows him that his buried creativity may be their only hope against an ancient foe that poses the greatest threat the Republic has ever seen.

Simon must explore this Talent while navigating a treacherous maelstrom of political intrigue and shifting allegiances, torn between ambition and curiosity, duty and love.

The ARTS REBORN series follows the story of the lives touched by the return of opposing magical forces of artistic creation and elemental destruction to the Republic of Pazh, a historically-inspired world where hints of ancient Rome, Greece and the Mediterranean mix with the fantastical.

Brush With Darkness is Book I of Arts Reborn, but stands alone as a story, with additional arcs that continue on in the series.

Book II: Blood of the Water is available now on Amazon.

At the publisher's request, this book is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied. This book has been extensively edited and proofread.

About the Author

When I write, I follow my characters wherever they lead me, on journeys through fantastical places surprisingly similar to times and places in our past. Except there's magic. The Arts Reborn series (Book I: Brush With Darkness) goes to a place that isn't Rome in the time of the Republic. I'd love to connect with you at When I'm not writing or reading, I'm at home in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, spending time with my wife and two young boys, which generally involves playing some kind of board or computer games. Or reading. Or traveling. Otherwise I'm probably reading or watching my Toronto Raptors play basketball. Yes, they're mine. And yes, I stubbornly refused to write this in the 3rd person.

Enjoyed Jamie Maltman's first novel immensely... was on the edge of my seat as the characters developed and the plot unfolded. Was so excited to go on his second.
