Young Writer Publishes a “New Kind of Fantasy” Novel
In the book, Carlton breaks away from the paranormal, vampire trend with a bold new race and a royal hero named Jaycent Connor that connects with readers on a realistic level.
“Jaycent isn’t your typical storybook character,” Carlton said. “He has this multifaceted personality that breaks him out of the knight in shining armor cliché. Jaycent’s not chivalrous. He’s not the epitome of good. Like us, the royal rogue contends with the ‘human condition’ which makes him less than perfect and people connect with that.”
The Royal Rogue is a compelling tale of moral struggle interwoven with intricate deception and page turning action. Set in a medieval era, readers follow the desperate journey of a prince who must become a rogue in order to defeat a power hungry illusionist bent on his demise.
