Author Biography

Steven David Sims has spent over a decade honing and writing the Saga of Marlsbeth. Marlsbeth: To the Horizon’s Edge, Marlsbeth: Journey into Darkness, and Marlsbeth: War of the Seven Stars. Not to mention book 4, Marlsbeth: Scourge of the Sea King. This was a result of being a lifelong fan of comic books, movies, and novels and a passion to create.

Steve wrote these books to introduce the world to a cast of characters that might harken to the days of old whence honor and integrity abound. A time when moral fiber flourished in vigor and deed. A landscape fraught with danger and the monsters of legend.

Marlsbeth is the quest to right the wrongs and overcome evil with good.

The goblin army overruns Isabel with plans to take all of Marlsbeth. Led by the nefarious Lord Gim, the Dark armies will stop at nothing till the land is wiped clean of men and their kind. All that stands between them is King Kristophor and his plan to safeguard the people using the Elders Order. A brotherhood created by the necessity of the situation must come together to find the advocate, the one prophesied to lead them to victory over the armies of Lord Gim, made up of goblins, trolls, and the like. Will this brotherhood succeed? Or will the evil one get his hands on what he covets? Steven David Sims' Marlsbeth: To The Horizon's Edge promises to unlock long-buried secrets and adventure.

Marlsbeth: To The Horizon's Edge is a science fiction fantasy novel written by Steven David Sims. It is initially difficult to understand the storyline because of the way Sims presents it. The origin story is quite thorough but the use of Old English in narrating the story turned a simple process into a chore I initially struggled to understand. Despite this, I cannot imagine any better way to tell such a story. The attention to detail is also note-worthy; Vanzoldim is a perfect example of this. The battles are realistic, the characters have interesting subplots, and the concluding chapter shows signs of an even better sequel in the works. Marlsbeth: To The Horizon's Edge is one novel to look out for. Steven David Sims outdid my expectations with this novel.
