The Bastion is Back

John Marco is a favorite author of mine who used to run a blog called The Bastion, but just decided to quit one day. Luckily he's back in action, but it sounds like with less giveaways than before. Either way I'm happy he's back, I guess he missed it. Find him at

I've only read his first series, Tyrants and Kings, which is a cool mix between fantasy and technology in a gritty world of political intrigue.

The Jackal of Nar
The Grand Design
The Saints of the Sword

His next series is the Lukien Trilogy, which I own, but have yet to get to and he recently came out with Starfinder, a young adult novel. Good to have you back!


  1. I have not read any or even heard of John Marco till now. His books do look good. I am going to have to look around his blog a little more and at his books as well.

    Thanks for sharing this little piece of information.

  2. No prob. He's definitely good and has a different take on fantasy, which I liked a lot. His characters are pretty grey too, so it's hard to root for one set over the others. They all tend to be good and bad at the same time, which I like every now and then.

  3. Ooh, that sounds like a series I'd like.

    Anyway, hey, found your blog at Book Blogs' Blog Networking group. I like what you have to say so I linked you on my blog. Hope you don't mind. :D

  4. Sweet, thanks! I just checked out your blog and I'm a fan. Good stuff that is.
