The Blood of Titans is a love story set in the Golden Age of Africa. Halima, teenage princess of an advanced civilization, falls in love with the warrior king Shomari, a magnificent mountain of a man. But their kingdoms are at war. And, in an age of polygamy, he already has a first wife. A passionate love triangle erupts amid the clash of empires. Halima must overcome enormous obstacles to find happiness -- then must face a heart-rending choice between duty and love. Early responses are glowing:"The Blood of Titans is an epic romantic adventure that hearkens back to the origin of African civilization, told with detailed eloquence... an engrossing and well-crafted tale. Forsyth does an excellent job creating Halima's world with details so sharp the reader is easily transported into it." -- Milton J. Davis, Editor of Griots: A Sword and Soul Anthology "The lyrical language of The Blood of Titans quickly drew me into this richly textured novel. I could smell the air, hear the music, and see the towns and sea and grasslands and mountains. Every scene comes to life." - Shauna Roberts, Ph.D, author of Like Mayflies in a Stream "C. Michael Forsyth has charted new territory in the land of Sword and Soul. The Blood of Titans will carry you along on an amazing journey. I give it five spears out of five." -- Charles R. Saunders, Aurora Award-winning author of Imaro Many love stories targeted at African-American women are "urban romances," featuring dubious protagonists such as strippers and thugs. In contrast, the characters of this book have a Shakespearean dignity. With rousing depictions of sword battles, fights to the death with ferocious animals and other derring-do, the novel has plenty to offer both male and female fans of fantasy and the sword and sorcery genre.Anyone who enjoys a good story should read this exciting and moving tale.
