Blurb (Blog Media Kit)
John Carver has three rules: Don’t drink in the daytime, don’t gamble when the luck has gone, and don’t talk to the dead people who come to visit.
It has been almost five years since the incident in Kabul. Since the magic stirred within him and the stories began. Fleeing the army, running from the whispers, the guilt, and the fear he was losing his mind, Carver fell into addiction, dragging himself through life one day at a time.
Desperation has pulled him back to Afghanistan, back to the heat, the dust, and the truth he worked so hard to avoid. But there are others, obsessed with power and forbidden magics, who will stop at nothing to learn the truth of his gifts. Abducted and chained, Carver must break more than his own rules if he is to harness this power and survive

Experience with BBNYA as a Panellist
I have really enjoyed being a panellist for the BBNYA over the past year. I have read a number of books by authors that I would never have come across without the BBNYA. it was great to read about new worlds from new voices and The Lore of Prometheus is one of them. This book deserves to be the winner of the BBNYA 2020. The world-building is amazingly vivid and you feel exported to the desert, to the war and even into the mind of John carver. With him being the sole survivor of a military raid in Kabul. I rarely read thrillers but this one is a thriller not to miss. John Carver is an ex-military with intense PTSD symptoms. John develops superpowers from his painful experience. It seems that his superpowers only lands him in more trouble than it solves.
I hope you check out this book!
Graham Austin-King was born in the south of England and weaned on broken swords and half-forgotten spells.
A shortage of these forced him to consume fantasy novels at an ever-increasing rate, turning to computers and tabletop gaming between meals.
He experimented with writing at the beginning of an education that meandered through journalism, international relations, and law. To this day he is committed to never allowing those first efforts to reach public eyes.
After spending a decade in Canada learning what ‘cold’ really means, and being horrified by poutine, he settled once again in the UK with a seemingly endless horde of children.
To date he is the author of five novels, drawing on a foundation of literary influences ranging from David Eddings to Clive Barker.
Thanks for reading.
