Storytellers On Tour is a Blog/Instagram Tour organising service. It was born out of Justine’s (Whispers & Wonder) and my love and dedication toward SFF indie books and authors. Our goal is to give as much exposure to our clients as we can, while we also build a community among our Roadies. Find out more about us on www.storytellersontour.online!
This past week we gave you one of this year’s SPFBO entrants, Voice of War by Zack Argyle. Our Roadies brought a wide selection of content to this show with reviews, interviews and excerpts. Now it’s time to bring the show to an end and it’s my pleasure to present you with the encore.
Zack Argyle was raised with a wonderful family motto: don’t let the truth get in the way of a good story. What better way than to write fiction? He spends his days writing code and his nights writing epic stories about family, love, loss, friendship, and pain all intermixed with a heavy dose of the fantastical.
While preparing for the birth of his first child, Chrys Valerian is tasked with uncovering the group responsible for a series of missing threadweavers—those able to see and manipulate threadlight. With each failure, the dark voice in his head that began during the war grows louder, begging to be released.
Laurel lives in Zedalum, a secret city in the center of the Fairenwild. During her most recent messenger run, Laurel veered off course to explore the streets of Alchea. She never expected that her journey would end in chains.
When Chrys learns who is responsible for the missing threadweavers, they come for him and his family. He must do everything in his power to protect those he loves, even if it means trusting a strange girl or the dark voice in his mind.

“Some indie books can get lost in the weeds of dialogue, but Voice of War has a great blend of dialogue, action, and plot twists! Great character development, interesting plot, and just enough drama to give us a well-balanced and innovative epic fantasy!”
Kerri McBookNerd – review
“The writing in this has a way of pulling you along, never letting you go, and making you eager for more. I thought the pacing was well done, with a perfect blend of action, suspense, and light-hearted moments to give you a break from the intensity! This novel definitely kept my interest from page one until the very end.”

An Antidote For Boredom – review
“When I started this book I was almost instantly hooked. The world building throughout was brilliant and it was so easy to imagine every single detail, it was easy to imagine myself wandering through the world right along with the characters.”
Foals, Fiction & Filigree – review
“Filled with an enthralling magic system, great world-building, and realistic and relatable characters due to their situations, Voice of War is a great start to a new epic fantasy trilogy!”
Cosmic Lattes and Books – review
“The world was built in such a way that every single city was fleshed out and perfect. I would love to live in Zedalum, living in the treetops sounds like such an amazing time. Each city had their own culture and their own cultures surrounding threadweaving. Speaking of threadweaving, the magic system was top tier. It was reminiscint of Brandon Sanderson’s Mistborn series, which I loved. It was enmeshed in the world perfectly.”

The Grimdragon – review
“Overall, this is an entertaining read with plenty of political intrigue. The worldbuilding is imaginative & the Sanderson-style magic system is solid.”
booksnbites – review
“I love the cat and mouse game that happens throughout the first half or so of the book, where you think you have an idea what’s going to happen and then you read on and you’re wrong. That kind of plot just sucks me in and drives me crazy until I get to the very last page.”
I Can Has Books? – review
“The world building is top notch, Zack Argyle paints a vivid picture taking the reader further into this brilliant and interesting world. I could see the world in my mind and there is place that just sounds like it would be magical to visit..I can’t tell you where you reader must visit for yourself.”
