Nashville, TN (February 25, 2021)
Christian fiction historical fantasy author, J. J. Fischer, wants her readers to understand that there are two writers stuck inside of her. It’s hardly a case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde…more like Dr. Fun and Dr. Serious. Both Dr. Fun and Dr. Serious are crazy about Jesus. They both write stories of faith where hope and courage are tested, evil and suffering are confronted and defeated, and love wins the day. And, both want to bring readers fiction that feeds the soul. Together, they wrote The Sword in His Hand, her debut novel.
The Sword in His Hand is a romantic historical fantasy transformation of the epic Ben-Hur, The Darcentaria Duology is a sweeping saga of adventure, betrayal, true love, hope, and sacrifice about the dangers of lost innocence and the darkness that dwells in all of us.
For hundreds of years, strange things have been washing up on the shores of Darcentaria. But when a young foreign woman named El is found unconscious on the beach amidst the burning wreckage of a strange metal craft, the villagers of Odessa are immediately suspicious—is she an agent of the Dalriadan Empire, their cruel oppressors for as long as they can remember? Or does she come from the Outside, the vast and legendary lands beyond their borders from which no man or woman alive has ever returned?
Torsten Eiselher, a talented young swordsman, has spent the last nine years of his life wrongfully imprisoned by his uncle, the Empire’s ruler. Betrayed and deceived at every turn, Torsten has survived by keeping a firm grip on his sword—and by staying well away from anything to do with the Outside. But when his young sister is murdered, Torsten finds himself irrevocably drawn to El despite her Outsider heritage—and he begins to question everything he has been told about her world.
Intrigued by the existence of a powerful and dangerously advanced world within his reach, the Empire’s ruler, Jurien Arminius, launches a hunt for El and the two Outsiders that arrived with her—the ones who could help him win his war against Torsten and the rebellion that threatens to topple his Empire.
Suddenly, Torsten is forced to choose between defeating his long-term enemy or saving the woman he has come to love . . .
