About K.M. Frontain

I am an anglophone writer in Quebec province, Canada. I like to write epic fantasy with romantic elements and particularly enjoy stories of relationships between men, though this is not my only reading interest. My published stories often have glbtq content.

The Soulstone Chronicles blurb: An enigmatic deity reborn as a human being has been enslaved to work the downfall of the religious sects governing a coastal crescent of his world, but nothing can contain this perilous individual forever, not the memory-crippling blackness of death, the ominous earth goddess who seeks to recapture him, or the powerful spell that binds his soul to a stone.

The chronological order of the series is as follows: Bound in Stone, The Gryphon Taint, The Disposition of Ashes, The Redemption of Tehlm Sevet. Future sets are planned: The Sun Bane, The Apostate God, and Hell Walker.

I'm on Goodreads. Please rate my books. Sorry, Smashwords doesn't seem to allow html on this bio, so please cut and paste.

In case you are interested, I have an alter ego for a paranormal romance series that does not have a strong GLBTQ focus. You can find my other work at the following link (or look for the ocarina image under the cat butt):

Review by: beginstomorrow on Aug. 07, 2014 :
I adored this. My favorite of Frontain's books so far, and I can't wait for the story to continue. My only hope is that it doesn't stretch out over a long series like with the author's other stories, as I prefer getting my closure three books in at most (if even that).

Review by: Tressa Green on March 07, 2013 :
Set in a fictional medieval Japan where the akuma are very real. Miruku, a blind nobleman's son, sent away for his "defect" must learn to negotiate the unstable grounds of an unfamiliar and dangerous world after his family is ruthlessly slaughtered and carry the legacy of his birth.

I'm always delighted to read something a little different. Something that will spark my imagination and set me to thinking about things upsidedown. I can always count on K.M. to provide such wonderfully rich worlds in which this can happen. The Pearl is told from a demon's perspective, so things are, as such, more from a mostly animal instinct level of awareness. Yet somehow K.M. manages to make the characters seems very human at the same time. When it comes right down to it, The Pearl is about a man's struggle to realize Self.

This is a tale of demons so contains quite a lot of rutting sex. It's base and course and not really meant to titillate - a few times it's violent and disturbing. However, these scenes are needed to convey the terrible situation Miruku finds himself in and fights to climb out of. Look deeply into the message between the words and you might find yourself just as entangled in this world as I was.

The Pearl is the first in a series that I'm looking forward to continuing. K.M., again, has written something that snubs the norm and is compelling and utterly fascinating doing so.
