Author Biography

After years of struggling in dead-end jobs, I finally found the perfect day job as a workers' compensation lawyer. By night, I am obsessed with tales of adventure, betrayal, simmering love, and bloody revenge. Every so often, I get the irresistible compulsion to put one of those stories down on paper. When not writing fantasy novels, I enjoy hiking and camping across America's many National Parks and forests; playing video games with my wife; and trying and failing to become some kind of decent poker player. I will say hi if you email me!

Reviewed by Demetria Head for Readers' Favorite

Children of Jade by Morgan Cole is a hauntingly poignant and emotionally charged story that delves into human suffering and resilience amidst war and political intrigue. Set in a world teetering on the brink of chaos, a powerful tale of loss, betrayal, and the unwavering pursuit of justice is weaved. From the very first lines, the reader is plunged into the life of the protagonist, Marilia Sandara, whose world has been torn apart by war's violent and tragic events. Her longing for revenge against her enemies and herself is palpable and heart-wrenching as she grapples with the weight of her past decisions and their devastating consequences.

Morgan Cole masterfully tackles themes of war, power, and the destructive nature of humanity. The characters' complexities, particularly Governor Victoria Ildoran and the Graver, add depth to the narrative, questioning the nature of good and evil and exploring the blurred lines between righteousness and cruelty. The vivid and evocative descriptions of the setting, from the stunning landscapes to the claustrophobic confinement, create a hauntingly atmospheric backdrop that heightens the story's emotional impact. It is poetic and gripping, drawing readers into Marilia's internal struggles and battles. The narrative's vivid descriptions and raw emotional intensity make it impossible to look away, captivating readers until the very last page. Children of Jade is a masterfully written and emotionally charged story that explores the depths of human suffering, resilience, and the quest for justice in the face of impossible odds.
