About Jay Blaes

Jay Blaes is a lifelong Retail Manager who is trying to escape the Retailpocalypse through the written word. Growing up, inspired by mythology and the great movies of the 1980’s and 90’s, he began writing short stories and comics for fun. After more than 20 years of toying around with this hobby, he has finally seen a completed work (Reign of Chaos-Forshanaland) in print. He seeks to become a career author with many more stories to tell, within and outside of the Reign of Chaos world.

Jay is an old-school video gamer who prefers Nintendo and Super Nintendo games over all of this 3-D mess out there now. He is also an avid fan of the Star Wars Expanded Universe (Disney may have “erased” it all and started its own line of fan fiction, but he will never forget the TRUE universe!).

He lives near Nashville, Tennessee with his B-E-A-Utiful wife Sabrina and two heathen children, Jayson and Alexis.


Review by: Angel on March 7, 2018 :
This was a fun read for me. I read a lot of fantasy books and this one was different. The frozen land and Viking-like mythology and culture was unlike anything I’ve read. I enjoyed all the action especially at the end when it all came together. There was no war battle at the end which is often the case. It was a more intimate battle between the heroes and the monster. This book didn’t rely on just the action though. The heroes had some fun encounters (the hag!) and the author revealed some interesting details as they travelled across this frozen land. And I liked that not every minute detail in a scene is given right away! The author didn’t spend 10 pages spelling out every piece of furniture and the entire history of each piece of furniture! He revealed things in bits and pieces and kept the story flowing. He gave enough detail to make it interesting or because it was important to a scene but he left some details to the reader’s imagination. I also like how the author bounces between the different characters in a scene. You get to see what each character is thinking and they all add something to the story. I love the way he did this in the fight scenes! Instead of just telling what is happening from one character’s perspective you get to see what is happening to each one like the way a movie will cut between the different characters in a battle. This book left me wanting more and since it says Book 1 I am eagerly awaiting Book 2!
