Enemy of Existence

Book 1, Enemy of Existence is hidden in stores now!

Yes Citadel 7 fans, that right, we said hidden. Or more correctly, registered inaccurately on supplier-to-store data bases.
Please help the Citadel 7 titles and your Superverse!
With book two, War & Lies, in the multi award winning Citadel series out in May 2016, sales for Citadel 7’s book 1, Enemy of Existence by Yuan Jur, has been selling well.

However, lately many fans who have tried to order Enemy of Existence in physical stores such as QBD and other major outlets have been stifled at the counter.
When attempting to order their paperback copy of Enemy of Existence, staff checking the data base tell the keen-to-buy, or ready-to-order Citadel 7 fan, “Sorry, No can do!”
Fans are being told Enemy of Existence is either waiting for 2nd print-run, or on back order with 4-6 week wait.

C7 Fans, this is wrong!

The supplier has developed a fault in their data base that has choked availability of EOE in brick and mortar stores. Being exceedingly un-proactive, the supplier (gate keeper between publisher and store) will do nothing to fix the problem unless fans help by walking in and physically order Enemy of Existence over the counter!
 

Here’s how you can help.

If you love physical books, help us get in store suppliers to put Enemy of Existence on the shelves.

War And Lies: Book II Of The Citadel 7 Saga

War And Lies: Book II Of The Citadel 7 Saga
by Yuan Jur
Promontory Press

Reviewed by John E. Roper

 

"In his delirium, he tripped on something quite obscure and fell face down upon the ground in a sprawl, then felt the giant hand descend, grab him by the torso, and snatch him up."

Imagine if the universe that our scientists tell us about was itself a mere quadrant in an impossibly vast realm of existence known as the Superverse. In Jur's highly complex Superverse, countless mortal and ethereal races dwell and occasionally overlap with each other. Ruling it all are the Evercycles, beings of unfathomable power that are higher than the gods and lesser gods. This is the extensive sandbox that the author has chosen to build his ambitious Citadel 7 series in and one in which everything, even history and memory, are subject to change.

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
