Welcome! Today I’m helping author Jeff Altabef launch his latest book, The Ghost King!
Who are Aalis, Wilkey & why are they going to war? Will there be more magic & mayhem in this second book? One of the best parts of this release is you can get both books for only 99c right now!
The Ghost King was just as amazing as Red Death, the first book in the series. I loved it, could have read 400 more pages. Jeff Altabef’s dystopia is proof of his talent as a writer and builder of magical worlds. His words fuel your imagination, and the story is vivid in your mind. Once you enter his world, you don’t want to leave.
I like the way Jeff Altabef writes. Even though there are multiple characters and POV’s, the reading experience is enjoyable, and everything entwines together creating a perfect story flow.
The Ghost King has a bit darker tones than Red Death; all the tribes have seen the signs and are preparing for war. Alliances are needed, but the question is, who can you trust? Eamon and Aaliss have to make difficult decisions based on Wilky’s premonitions. But he’s not only one who has seen the future and the enemy has dark powers in their aid. Rivaling tribes, witches, firefoxes… everyone is on the move.
The Ghost King holds the reader in suspense. Inside each tribe, things are changing, and events outside the tribal grounds shake the delicate balance of power and authority. The dawning the of a new era is near, and even the ones with the most knowledge are blind to the events ahead. The Ghost King is a thrilling adventure, a book that you can’t put down until the very last words.

About the Book
Led by a powerful witch, a wild invading army threatens to tear the Soulless lands apart. To survive, the three tribes must join together, but old grievances and hatred divide them. Only Wilky can unite them, but when he glimpses the future, he sees only a glimmer of hope; too much of the future remains veiled in darkness.
As the battle approaches, King Dermot orders his brother, Eamon, to stay behind at the Stronghold and defend against a possible siege. Eamon, who took an oath to fight the invaders, defies his brother, risks everything, and plunges into a desperate race with Aaliss and Wilky to unite the tribes.
Enemies from all sides conspire against them. Only together can they hope to succeed against the witch who will stop at nothing to destroy them. Yet even united, they will need magic to defeat this enemy at their door.
As the battle looms, only one chance at survival remains–the Ghost King–but who is he, and what will be the price of their redemption?
