Fantasy, Lore, and More: Crown Prince

Update: 2023-06-17


Hi, I’m indie fantasy author, Melinda Kucsera, and today W.D. Kilpack III joins me to discuss the first book in his series New Blood, Crown Prince. 

What’s it about?

Natharr is Guardian of Maarihk. He and others before him have protected mankind since the Olde Gods walked. With Sight, Natharr Sees what will be and, as his father did before him, planned for decades to save newborn Crown Prince Vikari and help him reclaim the throne from the tyrannical Brandt of the Green.

What’s in this episode:  

  • W.D. Kilpack III will transport us to the ancient land of Maarihk, following Natharr as he guards fate. We’ll explore his duty protecting mankind from threat, be it of their own making or, far worse, the machinations of the Demons of Chaos.

  • We’ll discover the Olde Gods, the Firstborn, the Daemon of Sight, and what inspired this epic fantasy exploring tyranny and humanity’s eternal fight for freedom.

  • We’ll discuss Natharr’s Sight and lifetime of planning to shape fate and ensure the Crown Prince can someday return to the throne, reclaiming the seat of power for the rightful descendants of the first Firstborn. Through duty and prophecy, Natharr never stops fighting for freedom.
