About the author:

Katje van Loon, genderqueer author, poet, and menace to society, resides in the suburban outskirts of the Greater Vancouver Regional District with zir spouse and their massive library of books, DVDs, and video games. Katje often dresses up like Kara “Starbuck” Thrace and avoids arrest for disorderly conduct.

While not writing, Katje can be found baking, knitting, crafting, subverting the heteronormative, gender-binarist paradigm, and killing Cylons.

 


Bellica
 

Authored by Katje van Loon

Conspiracy. Magic. Courage.

All Bellica Yarrow wants from life is to stay the course. Her military career fulfills her childhood dreams and affords her a freedom royalty never did. Yarrow doesn’t need anything more than the steadfast friendship of her Major, Caelum, and her Chief Medical Officer Jules.

The Goddesses have other plans, however. They set in motion events that threaten the bellica with madness and despair. Constancy has been Yarrow’s standby, but betrayals on every side push her further into chaos. She watches the puppet-Empress, her aunt, destroy the country, and dreads the day Zardria, her power-hungry twin sister, takes the Sceptre and rules openly.

Should Bellica Yarrow keep her military oath, or topple her sister’s cruel regime? Can she?

The choice is nearly impossible. The longer she equivocates, the more she risks the lives of everyone she holds dear. Meanwhile, Zardria has her own idea of how events should unfold – and what Yarrow doesn’t know could cost the bellica her life.

 

Bellica is the first intallment in epic fantasy series The Third Age. If you like books that are equal parts slow burn and fast-paced action, diverse casts of characters, and deeply mythic tales, then you’ll love Katje van Loon’s vision of humanity in the far-off future.
