Hello Hello! How are you all?
It’s been a while since I’ve come on the blog for a post, mainly due to the fact that my thesis isn’t really progressing all that quickly, the heat in France is killing me and I’ve been a bit unwell lately, but you know, life goes on!
I am however very excited to be bringing you my spotlight post for Advocatus by A.R. Turner, organised by Dave and the team over at @The_WriteReads. This book honestly sounds so unique and fun so I will definitely be reading it once I can breathe again after this thesis & the heat. Definitely keep an eye on the blog for a review in the coming weeks!
As always, thank you so much to Dave for having me on the tour, and thank you to the author and the publisher for providing me with a free copy of this book. Now without further ado, here is my spotlight!
Advocatus tells the tale of Felix, a junior lawyer with one last case before he can strike out on his own.
His client? A terrifying magical warlord accused of, amongst other horrifying crimes, two counts of Attempted Genocide (and six counts of Theft). His plea? Innocent, of course! All in a day’s work for Felix.
Psychic frogs, downtrodden goblins, time-travelling wizards, and a whole host of other magical defendants become his caseload as Felix begins trying to make a name for himself as a successful lawyer in a world rife with sorcery.
The biggest case of his life: defending humanity in front of Habeus, the God of Justice himself. Lose, and it’s all over. Not just for him, but for the whole of mankind.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR – A. R. TURNER
Born on the Isle of Wight in the south of England, Alex now lives in South Wales with his wife and cat, where he divides his time between reading, writing and board games. Having always wanted to read a book about a lawyer in a fantasy world (but never successfully finding one), Alex finally realised that there was nothing else for it: he was going to have to write it himself.
His other passion in life is a board game called Blood Bowl. He talks about it often in his podcast and one day hopes to compete in the Chaos Cup or other big global tournaments.
That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed reading this post and will fancy giving this book a shot. I look forward to it myself!
See you soon, stay safe,
