Symons, Stephen

English born Stephen Symons lives in a little old cottage Christchurch, New Zealand, with wife Ruth and cat Bentley.

He has been fascinated by stories and story-telling ever since he can remember, the stranger the better. He wrote his first fantasy 'novel' at the age of nine, all the while devouring stories by such authors as Edgar Rice Burroughs, J R R Tolkein, Marion Zimmer Bradley and Mary Stewart, all the while developing the world of the Kalion Islands.

Now semi-retired, it was the devastating earthquakes that destroyed much of Christchurch in 2010-2011 that gave him the impetus to set some of his stories down in novel form in order to share them with the world.

The Islands of the Sixteen Gods, Book 1: The Amulet of the Hunter God by Stephen Symons (Series: Fantasy)
 
(1 reviews)  
The last that Edrun Jaranacad had seen of his beloved Jina, was an arm desperately waving from the raging waters of the flood that was bearing her away. Heartbroken, he decided to leave the safety of his quiet little village to travel the outside world to seek he did not really know what.

The discovery of a small golden jewel, an amulet of Shegadin the Hunter God, convinced Edrun that the Gods were watching over him, guiding him towards some end that only he could see. Edrun soon began to realise that although the Gods might be guiding him as he travelled in dangerous places, in company with even more dangerous people, it would take all of his own strength to reach a destination he could never have foreseen.

The Islands of the Sixteen Gods, Book 2: Beloved of the River Goddess by Stephen Symons (Series: Fantasy)
 
(0 reviews)  
The Beloved of the River Goddess continues on directly from The Amulet of the Hunter God.

After a year of torment and pursuit half way across north-west Kalion, Edrun and Jina have finally found themselves both safe and well-funded. They decide to take a long, leisurely and much-deserved holiday in the fascinating Temple-City of Hazek, while they decide on their future.

Their happy idyll does not last for long. While enjoying a lazy lunch outside a tavern, Edrun, to his horror, finds himself publically hailed as a Lord of the Gathering. The warrior aristocracy of the Islands of the Sixteen Gods are very protective of their status and privileges, and are swift to inflict punishments both brutal and bloody upon those who would usurp their position. Moments later Edrun and Jina discover that their former nemesis Halgar Rassvorea is in Hazek, and has in mind a sadistic revenge against them for the trouble that they caused him in the past.

To help jolly Edrun along, the Kalalutorm brothers and Vaided Mailaranarad, younger brother of Lord Ordron, suggest an expedition to the nearby Forest of Rabti where they can spend a few days hunting, drinking, and chasing milkmaids. They journey to the Forest where they are invited to spend the night in a stone ring sacred to the ancient Forest God, Rabti. Edrun and his men are ambushed by a group of men-at-arms of the Jemegaidi Clan, resulting in Edrun's capture. He is taken to Chailam Alu to be the 'guest' of Lord Garin, Chieftain of the Jemegaidi. Garin has heard that Edrun enjoys the favour of the Gods, and wants him to join with him in a war to re-conquer the wide lands which once the Jemegaidi ruled without rival. This alliance would involve Edrun marrying Garin's daughter Taren...
