Ablaze and JP Roth Team Up for Graphic Novels
Ablaze has announced a deal with fantasy author JP Roth to publish her line of Rothic graphic novels, beginning with Ancient Dreams, coming August 2021. Ancient Dreams is a modern fantasy intertwined with classic tales of the ancient gods.
Cara Wynter is a literature student living with her twin sister, Lily, in Fairhaven Washington. A daughter of witches, touch brings Cara only pain, and dark visions of pasts and futures she can rarely change. Already fighting to exist in her strange reality, she begins to crumble when the reoccurring dreams of her own death begin. In a desperate attempt to unlock the secrets in the violent images, she finds herself lost in a contest between love, and the will of the ancient gods. With only forgotten memories and the pages of a book to guide her, she struggles to understand her past and break a deadly curse. Cara must face her worst fears, to save the soul of a god she has treasured for centuries, and a love she cannot live without.
JP Roth’s Ancient Dreams graphic novel includes nine chapters of full-color stories, including three never collected before, in a complete 160-page $19.99 TP collection featuring art from Eric Basaldua, Mike Krome, Dawn McTeigue, and Sabine Rich.
After the release of Ancient Dreams, Ablaze also plans to publish other Rothic graphic novels, including REM 8, Theory of Magic, and Southern Nightgown.
