Author Jack WhitselReleases Second Epic Fantasy Book in the Dragon Rising Serieson Amazon.com

Portland, Oregon, 13 April 2014 -- Portland, Oregonbased author, Jack Whitsel, has announced that his highly anticipatedsecond fiction book in the "The Dragon Rising" series, has been launched on Amazon Kindle under the Epic Fantasy genre. Aptly titled, "Shades of Virtue", with a tagline that reads "The future of humanity hangs from the tip of a lance", the new book promisesto be a gripping adventure that embodies medieval realism and fantasy. Entwined in a fantasy backdrop, the Dragon Rising series is a reflection of the current state of global affairs, where one must question the sacrifices made in order to embrace the greater good. With early reviewers confirming the new book as a worthy sequel to its predecessor, the fans of the series will find the new adventure of the characters, Dragana and Lucia, worth waiting for.

Released under the banner of Twilight Times Books, "Shades of Virtue" has almost 300pages and is available in Kindle ebook format on Amazon Kindle Bookstore for $4.99. The Kindle bookcan be directly downloaded to any Kindle, tablet, cell phone, laptop or computer from the following URL: http://j.mp/ShadesOfVirtue. Shades of Virtue is also available on Nook, Kobo and paperback

"My new book takes forward the story where it was left off in the first part of the series. Nearly two years have passed since the Harhn incursion and while the Hugue recovers from the devastation, the Order of the Secret Throne resumes their agenda," says Jack Whitsel, the author of the book. "The readers will be drawn into the strategies of Lord Yannic, whowith his armies, is marching the breadth of the VolThaldane to rally the divided human fiefdoms into the new realm of Shyrlandia, while engaging the Braug tribes and Harhn Hordes still plaguing the region."

What really works for Whitsel's new book is the way he delivers an amazing balance between the gritty aspects of medieval society and the strong contemporary elements of fantasy. The riveting story quickly unfolds as a tournament champion is foreseen to have an impact on future events in the Hugue. The Council of Whispers dispatch Lady Lucia and her two apprentices, Dragana and Tallya to oversee the event. Amidst the spectacle of pageantry and martial prowess, Lucia must uncover the dark powers wishing to thwart the Order’s agenda, while supervising her headstrong apprentices. There is more at stake than winning a lady’s hand, for whoever wins the tournament will set events in motion that will forever impact the future realm of Shyrlandia, the VolThaldane, and the Hugue.

Dragana and Lucia are descendants of Shyrdasa – the Great Dragon. Together they must uncover the treachery that surrounds them while embracing their role within the realm.

A truly first-class page turner set against a stunning medieval fantasybackdrop, "Shades of Virtue" delivers the best of action adventure with just the right dose ofmagic and realism, together!

"Being able to write this series has been a dream come true for me as I, myself, am a great fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and enjoy sharing my tales of magic and chivalry with my children," speaking on the inspiration for his new book, the author says. "As an author, it has been quite a liberating experience for me to bring the fantasy world to life in my books. I look forward to the response of my readers as it will be the true gauge of the success of this new and amazing story!"

Being touted by many as one of those intense fantasy thrillers that simply deserve to be made into a movie or a television series, "Shades of Virtue" is equally powerful on its own as a book that has an almost surreal kind of on-the-edge narrative. A reader is bound to get immersed in the plot, and the turbulent world ofDragana and Lucia. Great characterization by the author only further compels the reader to care about the outcome of the story and how it turns out for them.
