Trent Lindsey seeks to reimagine the fantasy genre with his intrepid Honest Threats Saga. Detailing a world cast with rime, and filled to the brim with unconventional creatures and drama, there’s a little something for everyone in his novels. These stories feature an eccentric slew of characters and down-to-earth grit, those fictional few are spurred on a path of pure, unadulterated adventure, traversing untamed wilds, and confronting their harsh realities.
His first book, “A World of Honest Threats,” introduces an icy narrative. Imagine if the world as we know it was trapped inside a snow globe, and shaken quite so zealously. Learn about what it takes to survive in this bleak, winter wonderland. What sort of menagerie should navigators expect? There’s the burly bison, even timid troll-kin, those particular gremlins led by their pompous kit-king, and that dreaded tundra terror all have their parts to play. In a certain twist of events, Trent created his world first, and is now writing the tales of those who live it. It all begins with his debut novel, releasing in 2023, the first of many more to come.
A central Ohio native, Trent has always been immersed in storytelling, studying art, design and all things creative, earning his BFA in Animation from the Columbus College of Art & Design.
A World of Honest Threats
A World of Honest Threats casts a slew of characters across the Underdark, a never-ending labyrinth of trodden sewer and rail tunnels. Survival has become a daily motivation, clans vie over food and warmth, barely fending off utter starvation. These competing factions clash with warriors of legend, immaculate mavens of lore, even dastardly political envoys. Learn elaborate backstories of intrigue, mysterious mythos, and discover all that this unforgiving frontier has to offer.
Those Wyrd and Wonderful
After the earth froze over in a great cataclysm, humanity took to the old city’s underground tunnels and survived the chill like vermin. Hundreds of years later, as the clans continue to clash over heat and scraps, people decide to test their mettle by reclaiming the world above only to discover that these lands rally against them by manner of tooth and claw.
William is one of those second-generation pioneer kids who’d rather forfeit his daily drudges than compete against those vagabonds racing to stake their claim. Alas, as the barrowtide season bears the brunt of bad weather, his frontier settlement is deemed just another lost cause. The young boy Jones is forced into a harsh reality, coming to terms on whether he’ll sink or swim, cast against an ever-rising white tide and the dark secrets harbored there.
Dealt a bad hand, William faces a hostile world where honest threats are always looming against him. “Those Wyrd and Wonderful” showcases the grim decisions of frontier life, because to thrive, one must first survive. An earnest lad learns to roll with these punches, neither losing his compassion, nor those morals while countless others around him have chosen to forget.
