The planet Urth was once a green and verdant paradise. Powerful elemental beings with deep magic were stewards to this wonder, but not all could agree on its destiny. When gods war, it is the small who always suffer, and the First Great Age ended with a battle that nearly destroyed all life. To end the conflict, an Accord was put in place to preserve the balance, and the elementals withdrew their influence to allow new, less powerful races to grow and thrive in the world.
The delicate peace was destroyed, however, when a race of near immortals called the Kothites came to Urth. In the ensuing centuries, they have wreaked havoc on the planet, and the mortal races of men, elves, and other creatures are seeking a way to break free of the Kothite menace. Rumors of a Sleeping King, a powerful elvish elemental trapped in a spell, who may bring Urth back to health, abound, and many are seeking this treature— including a young girl who wants to thwart prophecy to save her own future and a young woodsman out to discover his lost past. Only time will tell if they can work together to save the beloved Urth they call home.
THE SLEEPING KING is the first in an epic fantasy series, featuring the best of the genre: near immortal imperial overlords, a prophecy of a sleeping elven king who’s said to be the savior of the races… and two young people who are set on a path to save the day. I hope you’ll review this compelling new novel to coincide with our September publication date. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

About Cindy Dees
Cindy Dees started flying airplanes while sitting in her dad’s lap at the age of three and got a pilot’s license before she got a driver’s license. At age fifteen, she dropped out of high school and left the horse farm in Michigan where she grew up to attend the University of Michigan.
After earning a degree in Russian and East European studies, she joined the U.S. Air Force and became the youngest female pilot in the history of the Air Force. She flew supersonic jets, VIP airlift and the “C-5” Galaxy, the world’s largest airplane. She also worked part-time gathering intelligence. During her military career, she traveled to forty countries on five continents, was detained by the KGB and East German secret police, she got shot at, flew in the first Gulf War, met her husband and amassed a lifetime’s worth of war stories.
Her hobbies include professional Middle Eastern dancing, Japanese gardening and medieval reenacting. She started writing on a one-dollar bet with her mother and was thrilled to win that bet with the publication of her first book in 2001.
