Lance Morcanabout this book: The World Duology was the logical title for a box set comprising our first two historical adventures, World Odyssey and Fiji: A Novel.
As well as conveying to readers that this is a two-part series, the title also gets across the fact that the storyline has a global flavour. It is, after all, about three young, disparate individuals from different parts of the world. On the surface, the only thing the trio have in common is they have a common destination – Fiji. As the story unfolds in book two, it gradually becomes obvious they have more in common than even they might care to admit.
Readership of the duology seems pretty equally split between males and females. Male readers in particular relate to the books' action and adventure themes while female readers really resonate with the romantic sub-plot which features in book two in particular.
Book critics seem to like the fact the books are fast-paced. We pride ourselves on our ability to keep our storylines movin' along – even in our historical novels – and more than one Amazon reviewer has commented on this.
Historical Novel Review describes the duology as "A truly gripping epic James Michener style!"
One of the best reviews is that of Karine Brégeon, author of Francette and the Mystery of the Deaf Soldier. In her review she writes, "I was immediately drawn into the story, and the fast-paced action kept me turning the pages until the end. The historical and cultural details made it a highly interesting book offering an insight into the anthropological issues at atime when conflicts between different ethnic groups were solved by brutal violence. Between romance, action and historical accuracy, this story has all the elements of great entertainment. I would highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy historical fiction or epic adventures."
