The name "Peers of Beinan" references the many nobles on the planet Beinan that populate each book in this ever expanding series. The first three books (and their supplements) follow the Gurun dynasty of planet Beinan, beginning with Queen Isabelle and her family in BE 6326. Queen Isabelle has been on the throne for just five yen-ars (Beinarian years) yet still the Great Council (a form of parliament that not only legislates, but also elects/removes monarchs from their office under the Beinarian constitution) has refused to settle the matter of Isabelle's successor once and for all, triggering the Great Succession Crisis with its far-reaching consequences across not only Beinan, but an obscure little planet on the edge of known space named D425E25 Tertius, the setting for book three, "Princess Anyu Returns."
In book one, "The Great Succession Crisis," Queen Isabelle's daughter Anlei must navigate a chess game of competing noble houses with nothing less than her virtue, her life, and the fate of the planet at stake. A dangerous villain rises up in this suspenseful adventure that will leave you guessing right to the end. Available in regular and extended editions in digital, paperback, and large print paperback options.
In book two, "The Ghosts of the Past," the adventure continues. The villain of book one swore revenge upon Princess Anlei and her descendents. Now, three generations later, that revenge takes fruition as healing centers across Beinan are destroyed by unknown terrorists. After Lord Elendir of house Ten-Ar is orphaned by two such attacks, he petitions the presumptive crown prince to investigate himself. But finding the truth will not be easy to discover or undo. Spanning four generations and over two thousand Earth years, the Ghosts of the Past threaten to destroy all of Beinan forever. Now available in paperback, large print paperback, and digital.
The Peers of Beinan series is proudly family-friendly.
What does that mean?
It means a commitment to great story-telling without resorting to profanity, lewdness, obscenity, or gratuitous violence.
Sexual content is non-graphic in nature. More often than not, it is handled through indirect language that leave the details to the imagination where they belong.
Likewise violence is handled non-graphically. You do not need to see every drop of green-yellow blood to know someone was murdered, so I do not show that to you.
As an author, I assume you are intelligent and more than capable of understanding what is going on without giving you every gory or erotic detail.
I promise to never talk down to you nor lower my work to the lowest common denominator like some authors do. The data files are there for your reference; I assume you are capable of looking up words (like yen-ar, the Beinarian year) in the glossaries that are part of every Peers of Beinan book and that you can handle the occasional word you have not seen before (like perigee, bliaut, and yawp).
Expand your mind while you enjoy a great medieval adventure set on a complete world rooted in solid data from an author who believes in your ability to appreciate intelligent literature.
