Mark S. Smylie has given us quite a story here, or rather part of quite a story. Objections about unrealistically able female warriors are met first by magic and spiritual aid and second by good generalship. Few individual combats are shown; instead we see army against army, where better discipline, better training, and better leadership can rather easily defeat superior individual abilities. In this world, the arts of war, magic, and eros intertwine in a deadly serious epic tale.
And through this den of vipers marches Artesia, self-proclaimed Queen of Dara Dess, with magic coursing through her veins, the whispers of ghosts in her ears, and an army at her back as she confronts the temptations, limits, and consequences of power.

The drums and horns of war still sound through the Middle Kingdoms, though the invading Empire of Thessid-Gola has been dealt a setback. The powers at play - the High King of Therapoli, his nobles and officers, the lurking Isliklid King, his warrior-servants, and the Sultan, commander of the Empire's armies - are all maneuvering for advantage, setting snares and traps for each other, with prisoners of war become hostages held in the balance.
Artesia Afire, The Book of Dooms, Vol. For fans of complex, morally ambiguous stories, such as George R. R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire, the Artesia series offers the kind of depth, drama and intensity you'll find in the finest contemporary fantasy writing in graphic novel form. This book immerses you in a richly crafted world, complete with a deep and realistic history and accompanying religious and magical systems and themes. I highly recommend this book to any fan of more realistic fantasy.
This book is for Mature Readers, and contains adult content, graphic violence, nudity, and strong sexual content. The drama in Artesia does not come from epic battles – although Mark Smylie’s insanely good at drawing those – it comes from his intense understanding of what happens when people come together in the name of politics and religion, of his understanding of the evil and the good that mankind is capable of.
The third chapter in Mark Smylie's epic fantasy. After claiming the throne of Dara Dess, Artesia and allies pursue the Thessid vanguard. But wary of battle with a trapped and desperate enemy, she tries to make her first victory as one won with words, not swords. Includes a short prologue following King Bran's head as Urgrayne takes him to meet her Three Sisters.
