The Elysian Chronicle, August 2007

M. B. Weston’s Author Newsletter, Volume 2, Issue 4

Inside Heaven’s Realm
It’s no secret that mornachts have infiltrated Elysia’s southern front. It’s also no secret the infiltrators have keen eyesight—even at night—and that the danger of getting shot out of the skies poses a real threat for all cherubians fighting in the south. Something about this scenario should cause suspicion for all Elysian Chronicles readers—as it does for Davian and many RSOs. Cherubians can fly high in the skies—higher than the range of their own arrows. One must wonder, therefore, how the mornachts are able to shoot them down. Do they have better arrows? Better bows? And is it really the mornachts who have discovered this new technology, or is something else going on? It’s a question that probably enters Davian’s mind even as he concentrates on unearthing the perpetrators behind the Third Battle Conspiracy, and it leave readers with something to think about as they await Out of the Shadows, the newest installment of The Elysian Chronicles.

About M. B. Weston

Award-winning author M. B. Weston is one of the fantasy genre’s new, emerging voices. The Elysian Chronicles, her flagship fantasy series about guardian angel warfare and treason, has been referred to as, “…filling a big part of the void that will be left by the final Harry Potter,” by award-winning author, Vincent O’Neil. Weston’s writing attracts both fantasy and non-fantasy readers, and her audience ranges from upper-elementary students to adults. The Elysian Chronicles is being adapted into a graphic novel, and her newest book, The Sword of the Vanir (working title), is due out in Spring 2013. A gifted orator, Weston has been invited as a guest speaker to numerous writing and science fiction/fantasy panels at conventions across the US, including DragonCon, BabelCon, NecronomiCon, and ImagiCon. She has served on panels with such authors as Sherrilyn Kenyon, J. F. Lewis, Todd McCaffrey, and Jonathan Maberry. Weston has spoken to thousands of students and adults about the craft of writing and has been invited as the keynote speaker at youth camps and at several schools throughout the US.
