    Greetings! Name's Harrington. Care for some Science Fantasy?

    Of War and Consequence
    The Consortium Chain, Book One

    Science Fantasy/Space Opera/Romance

    Over the swamps of Banthyk and the shores of Ornateam, the grip of war is ever-present. The people's hero, Crown Bearer Sha, knows that the fate of his tiny home world, Xarh, hangs in the balance. Challenging traditional theory and navigating murky diplomacy, the denizens of this turbulent world pull at each other from all directions. The mighty city-states must endure or the Pantheona Lords will control the future.

    Take a journey to an engaging world where science seems as magic.

    A world you’ll not soon forget.

    "Tired of the same old Science Fiction and Fantasy concepts? Looking for high adventure, romance, plot twists and turns, or a truly unique epic? You'd be well served by experiencing Book One of the Consortium Chain."
    -a wise friend

    "This is an exciting book full of action and intrigue. The descriptions are so vivid that I can still visualize the lands and characters. I'm anxiously awaiting Book Two."
    - Jim Kosfeld

    "If you're a Sci Fi fan you'll love this book; if you're not, you may be converted. Author Harrington Martin has a way with words that unfolds rich imagery with every page turned. "Of War & Consequence" introduces fantastic characters in a layered storyline that surprises and satisfies. I highly recommend this book and can't wait for Book Two in the chain. Of War and Consequence: The Consortium Chain, Book One (Volume 1)"

    Of note:

    "Medieval-era parallel universe full of airships, tunnels, mystical minerals, warriors with regenerating body parts, and endless wars fought across the churning waters of the Sea of Regrett."

    "the story is good, the characters fairly interesting, and the setting both unique and colorful."

    "confusion over whether the good guys are all that good is fueled by their actions after a battle when, as Martin explains, “Revelers picked up appendages that lay around the gates, and children gathered hunks of flesh; these were all standard practices for the embattled people of Banthyk.”

    "Martin has set the stage for further events to unfold"

    Short, anonymous review from my preview:

    "Does this preview give you a sense of the conflict?
    The preview pages are a good taste of the author's hand in crafting the story. The characters and setting are introduced well. I can hardly wait for my book to arrive!


    With an introduction, and expanded view of the terminology, would this appeal to you?It would be beneficial, but the story itself flows well without the background information. I wasn't confused; I only wanted more!"

    Review from J Adair on Amazon:

    "4.0 out of 5 stars Sci Fi Space Opera, May 7, 2012


    4/5 star average, over five reviewer's critiques.


    My Author Showcase is up on Paper Dragon Ink. Went rather well. Some funny questions in the follow-up.

    Edit: My Amazon paperback and Kindle links seem broken on the OP. The non-Amazon link is functioning.

    Here's the paperback link http://www.amazon.com/Of-War-Consequence-Consortium-Volume/dp/1470015374/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1339432209&sr=8-1&keywords=Of War and Consequence
