Quall AssassinCitadel 7 – Quall Assassin Crossfire

by Yuan Jur
Genre: Science Fiction, New Adult, New Adult Fantasy

Science Fiction & Fantasy

Teaser… Talaza Bane is a Quall assassin. He lives and breathes the clan’s code. All races known to him have one name for his world, Tora. It means – to engage. No race survives on Tora without trial or loss, not even the invincible Scarzen warriors south of his mountain. On the next dawn of his world’s sun, all Talaza has known as real and true will be tested in the extreme. Not his stealth nor skill with blade and poison will help his choice and consequences of his actions will reach farther than the wisest of his clan could ever conceive. Worlds outside Tora and its star system were made beyond reach for a reason long ago. Agents from other worlds both spirit-sider and solid explore Toran forests and the imposing hinterlands, then leave without engagement. Talaza has seen them arrive in their metal birds that sound like thunder. The last sky visitor was different. They did something. Hex, the Dark Star now stirs. He has lived on Tora in their dreams and spoke on the wind long before Quall lived on Black Mountain. Hex is not of Talaza’s world. The mystics always told he came from the sky. For more info...

About the AuthorGrand Prize Winner

A lifelong lover of stories and storytelling, Yuan Jur grew up in a mining and steel town on the east coast of Australia. After a three-year term in the military, he turned to the craft and study of medieval weapons and armor-making while in a continuing parallel study in Eastern theology, Zen Buddhism, and martial arts. Yuan Jur completed a twelve-year study in this pursuit and qualified as an accomplished master of Chinese martial arts and theology.

During that stage of his career, he became a popular and entertaining public speaker and storyteller in both China and Australia, thanks to his charismatic and down-to-earth style. Then Yuan Jur’s life took a major turn when he was forced into retirement after a life-threatening illness occurred in 2007, ending his monastic career.

At forty-nine years old, Yuan Jur decided on a new direction as a full-time sci-fi writer and storyteller for the Western public. He desired to offer readers stories that have an original style and interpretation of myth and adventure that relate to people of all walks of life, using the genres of fantasy and science fiction and appealing to readers from mature teens to adults.

Out of that desire came Yuan Jur’s original sci-fi Superverse series called Citadel 7, already the winner of multiple Cygnus Awards and now commencing with the Earth’s Secret Trilogy.

Citadel 7 Superverse Video ChannelNothing happens overnight in getting a book series published. Citadel 7 was always intended to be more than just an exciting saga. Its scope is immense, but the books are the bedrock.

Producing just one stellar story (novel) is hard. Producing a grand scale trilogy takes an even greater effort. But producing an 18 novel series with the first six titles as its foundation, yep that many, is well, something else altogether. By 2015, the series reached the next milestone in its evolution.

Happily, the more people who read the books and got involved with the stories and characters, the more they wanted. Up until 2010, there was little in the way of visual material, and the initial trilogy was just going through its first true essential editing process. From 2010 to 2016 several very talented professionals had gathered to form the core crew that brings Citadel 7 books and audio to life.

 

Master cover and sci-tech artists Ralph Hawke Manis, Angel Martin and Mick Rattanarupe gave vivid faces and visual shape to characters and technologies. Any flaws in the manuscripts were ironed out under the watchful eye of Editor John David Kudrick. 2011-12; the saga that was to become the Citadel 7 Superverse crystallized into the first six novels. 2013 onward, a sound team gathered to test the works before their impending publication, amongst them Nigel Cook and Series Production Manager, Charles Wannop. A music theme for the entire audio visual presentation also began with the aid of composer-performer Chris Ficher.

So as you can see from the above, a lot goes into the superverse realm building. After all, the story does involve saving all existence from oblivion. Plots and challenges for the heroes and heroines, surprises (there are many) and shock events (even more of them) must be thought through and rated. Several character growth arcs amidst an over-aching theme take some time to build to ensure integrity. Getting all that right results in a cohesive series that has real longevity and reader/lister appeal.

Yuan Jur - AuthorRegarding advice about being an author; Authors new or long-standing, everyone discovers that publishing and getting published is a very fickle industry. Without authors, mega millions both professionally and recreationally would have to find something else to make money from and entertain themselves.
Authors, true authors, are creative inspirational individuals. People who produce avenues into worlds fictional and true that transport the page turner on a journey of discovery. Fictional works have driven real industry inventions forever. An author’s work is more often than not solitary and for a protracted time, that takes discipline, and self-belief often amidst a flak storm of powers-that-be telling you “NO, you’re wrong, you must conform to our method or find another career buddy”. If it’s fiction, there are worlds to build, characters to evolve, unfolding circumstance and the critical events to pull the reader into the world to be constructed.
Authors come in all shapes sizes and thought methodology. We are the lifeblood of the publishing industry from the extraordinary “how the hell did they think that up” scribes, to the clones who pretend originality off the back of someone else's hard work. No matter what, Stories are why we are here.

So with that in mind;

Middlemen; and there is an ocean of them. All the “how to” guys, the ones who offer leverage supposedly in your advantage. They are the ones who will invite you in often after assessing their bottom line of your work. “What’s in it for me from this guy’s product?” Your book is also your best asset be careful how/what you trade for it. Middlemen, are only interested in you for what you bring. They care for you not in their wake after the inevitable parting of ways. Keep as much control of your product as you can with cards dealt.

Hi. Thanks so much for letting me read this. It was a blast. Here are my thoughts:

When a writer can create another world in your head within five pages, you know he's got it. When the same writer can pull you into the story and make you feel like you're participating, well, I don't actually know what to call that.

Except entertaining as hell.

With a clever trick and skilled writing, Yuan Jur grabs us from line one and eases us into the Superverse, a complex universe of cosmic power, unseen forces and, yes, bureaucracy. Frankly, I felt like I was a character in a Douglas Adams tale for the first two chapters. In a good way!

But it's not just about world-building here. Understanding the Superverse is important, but Jur has a good story to tell, too. It follows Uniss, Dogg and Ben on a trip that, at first, leaves an impression like the magic of childhood. Uniss and Dogg are on Earth to investigate a reset of the space time continuum. They stumble on the young Ben Blochentackle and find their new partner.

Reading Enemy of Existence is a brain-bending adventure that introduces rich characters and action wrapped up in snappy dialogue and some serious wordcrafting. The story can be heartbreaking, exciting, and poignant. The fact that the core of EoE speaks to our nature and our place in the universe just shows the author's sophistication. Jur has a lot to say. He says it well. You should listen.

Citadel 7: Earth's Secret has earned its place on my bookshelf. I have read too many fantasy novels that have left me underwhelmed: clichéd characters, two-dimensional worlds, linear plotting. It always frustrates me, and I never keep the book. Citadel 7 is different. The characters are unique and diverse, and have complex personalities and agendas. The multifarious races are far from conventional, while remaining consistent and sensible And the fantasy world that houses them all is rich, with the plot taking you far and wide – while hinting at so much more. This depth across all elements of the book means I'll leave Citadel 7: Earth's Secret on my bookshelf ready for another reading. And I'll recommend others put it on their bookshelves too.

I only occasionally read fantasy fiction, but thoroughly enjoyed the odyssey through Yuan Jur’s rich and vibrant worlds, populated with races and beings that are dizzyingly imagined, yet so richly detailed that they become familiar and natural to the reader. Citadel 7: Earth’s Secret’s particular strength is its enormous scope. Yuan Jur seamlessly weaves a rich tapestry of corporeal and ethereal beings, of great compassion and the deathly thrill of battle, of the deeply divine and the (at times hilariously) profane. Within a page, Yuan Jur provides his reader with both a serene, metaphysical panorama of the Universe he has created, as well as an earthly, humble and deeply personal connection with some of its chief protagonists. I strongly recommend reading Earth’s Secret, especially to fans of fantasy fiction.

Vastly more original and intriguing than Game of Thrones, more mature and engaging than either Harry Potter or Star Wars, the Citadel 7 series is, I believe, destined to become the “next big thing”! After thoroughly enjoying Book 1 of Citadel 7's series: Earth’s Secret, I eagerly anticipated Book 2 Allies in Anarchy. Second in the foundation trilogy, AIA immersed me in its visceral world environments, again inviting me to continue sharing the journey with characters I had come to love. The scope of the Citadel 7 series is so vast I thought I was prepared for anything. Yet still I was both surprised and amazed at author Yuan Jur's ability to ramp the story to the next level. Allies in Anarchy quickly became a high octane ride through the flyways and byways of the imploding intercosmos. Intrigue and twists abound, loyalties shift resulting in bitter struggles. I found the characters' easy to identify with. Both old and new personalities instantly came to life as circumstance complicated their experiences. All the while pace just kept building and building as tension rose until I was ultimately left asking... Where in the Superverse is Book 3? As the plot unwinds on many levels simultaneously, even though the story is fiction, I start to look at my own life in a new light.

If the worth of a book is to be judged by whether or not the reader can tear themselves away from it, then Citadel Seven by Yuan Jur rates right up there with the best page turners. The depth of the characters, the breadth of the settings, the pace of the story, the twists and turns that you don’t see coming, but when they arrive you “know” they could be no other way make this book something special. At the end you are left satisfied, yet wanting to know more. I can’t wait until the next book is finished! Susana Sabine MSS

I am normally interested in Fantasy Sci Fi and so I read this book because it fell in this category. The story plot is original with many twists and turns to keep you guessing and wanting you to keep reading. It brings in exciting new concepts, themes and characters. The main characters were easy to identify with for different reasons and the read was not particularly hard. I would recommend it to anyone to read.

Being an avid fantasy reader for many years, I was surprised to find an author in Yuan Jur that could spark new interest in the genre for me. His engaging style, originality and depth in his universe, and strongly detailed plot and characters are a breath of fresh air in a genre (fantasy fiction) that at times has seemed increasingly stale in recent years. Yuan Jur allows the reader to fully delve into his Citadel Seven universe (and beyond), providing insights into profound concepts through an entertaining cast of characters, choices and locations. His writing style is light and full of humor, which is very amiable to my tastes (a couple of reasonable comparisons in terms of style and wit are well-known authors Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman). I highly recommend Yuan Jur’s Citadel Seven novels to any fan of fantasy/sci-fi and to any reader with an eye outside of their singular world experience. Daniel Lee

I liked Citadel 7, Earth’s Secret™. What I look for first in a book is a good tale. As a voracious reader of both fiction and non-fiction and a regular fantasy reader I enjoyed the story. The culture of the worlds and the relationships between the characters was well thought out and well developed. I particularly like that the characters had flaws and foibles and were easy to empathize with. The unexpected turns and twists kept the reader’s attention throughout the book. This is a book that has something for both men and women. It is good to see women with attitude! The description of the war machines was for me a bit detailed but I am sure the guys like that, and the attention to detail in the machinery descriptions was excellent. At the end of the book, you either love or hate the characters/like or dislike them/want them to win or crush them to the ground, but you have an opinion about them! The suspense builds steadily through the first book and the end is a real surprise leaving one panting for the second book! Lyn Austen
