Read Song of Sundering

Song of Sundering

War advances toward Prin’s backyard, old knowledge of Source magic shatters, and the precarious hierarchy that keeps Prin stable is collapsing under the weight of refugees. While the leaders of Prin’s Topside play games for power, the Underground factions are ready to take as much blood as they need to win.

Independent Book Review

“Clinton’s worldbuilding rises to the levels of J.R.R. Tolkien and Brandon Sanderson’s epic tales. You can feel the author’s creative passion seeping through its pages.”

Reedsy Discovery

“Song of Sundering is an epic fantasy well worth reading. […] It’s strong and mysterious, and the world has a beautiful blend of advanced technology and arcane magic, making it one of those rare fantasies that feel wholly its own.”

Leslie Watts, Editor in Chief, Story Grid Publishing

“Song of the Sundering is an extraordinary tale of war, discovery, treachery, and mystery. In this debut fantasy novel, packed with epic action and magic, A. R. Clinton crafts a complex puzzle with intrigue and a dash of humor.”

Goodreads Reviewer
