And now with Spring upon us, it is time for our next giveaway. This time, it is not just one volume, but three books that we have up for grabs!! That is right, we are offering 1 set of the epic fantasy trilogy, Celenic Earth Chronicles, to one lucky grand prize winner, with nine winners each obtaining the Legendary Decennial Anniversary Ebook edition, with all three volumes in one complete volume!

It follows the adventures of the hero, Shadowolf, on a planet where magic is found in all of nature, specifically with the five elements of Wind, Water, Fire, Earth and the human Spirit.

First Antreya Chronicles Epic Fantasy Novel ‘The Journey Begins’ Set for Release on 15 December

Welcome to the first novel in the Heroes of Antreya fantasy series! Two of our writers, namely Dean Clark and Shaun M Jooste, have been working on The Journey Begins for months now while writing main and side questlines for the upcoming MMORPG epic fantasy game, Antreya Chronicles. The Journey Begins forms part of the first part of the game, and Antreya Studios graphic designers and developers are working hard to transform the literary words of these two creative writers into actual gameplay.

Do not feel that reading the gamebook novel will ruin the game experience for you though. Antreya Chronicles is a vast open world fantasy MMORPG, and players will be able to embark on many side quests, as well as choose how they want to carry out the main storyline missions. The Journey Begins brings the true plot of the game out in one, clean epic fantasy novel, revealing the essence of what the game’s tale will be.

And as the title suggests, this is only the beginning. More novels in the Heroes of Antreya series will be released in 2018, as well as spin-off novels by each of the writers. This is only the start of Antreya, which will keeping you reading and playing for decades to come.

Our pre-order page for The Journey Begins will be up by this weekend, and we will be sure to update you on our social media platforms once it is live. The expected release date is 15 December 2017 in paperback and ebook formats.
