Prior to signing his contract with Iguana Books, Canada, on 6th September, 2014, for publication of his new fantasy novel The Messenger and Age of Endings series, Paul Coey agreed to a video interview to introduce himself to the fantasy world’s readership.
In this short interview Paul Coey gave an insight into his life and love of books and how growing up in Northern Ireland through The Troubles affected him as an individual and later influenced his writing.
When asked about the interview Paul said: I’m quite a shy person so I was a bit uncomfortable about doing this. Not that you’d think it once the interview started! He laughed and added: Maybe it’s that Irish gift of the gab thing, but I enjoyed it. So much so I might even do a second one!”
Set in the fictional continent of Annessa, The Messenger is a dark fantasy tale following Falnir Aasberg’s harrowing journey from the chaos of war-torn Ennor on his quest south for aid. Enduring brigands, hunger and unspeakable hardship in Annessa’s bitter midwinter, Falnir struggles with his conscience when faced with the loss and murder of his wife, his sanity slowly unraveling among the ghosts of those met and lost along the way: men he admired, women he loved, the children he could not save. A broken, haunted man, Falnir must deliver his message to save thousands—maybe even himself.
