Dutch Fantasy writer Jeroen Steenbeeke has just kickstarted his new series The Unbound with the release of the novellas Repulsion and Benediction. Set in his native region of Twente, the Unbound gives a new twist to the Urban Fantasy genre.
I used to think I was a pretty normal teenager: I got up in the morning, went to school, did my homework, played videogames, and dreamed about Karen—one of the girls in my class. When I found out she liked me, too, I thought I was the luckiest guy alive. But everything changed when we kissed. Something awakened inside of us, and now we know that we're not normal teenagers after all.
For a while I thought these powers were pretty amazing—I mean, who wouldn't want superpowers? But it stopped being fun when Karen started hearing a voice in her head. A voice that told her I was her enemy. A voice that could take control of her. A voice that was only the first glimpse of a world we never knew existed.
Repulsion and Benediction is available as e-book through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, Tolino, Scribd, Inktera and 24 Symbols.
Jeroen Steenbeeke (1983) is a fantasy writer from the Netherlands, and has been creating fantasy stories since the early nineties. Despite several attempts to write novels since then, it wasn't until 2011 that he released his first novel Gift of the Destroyer.
During the day, Jeroen works as a Software Engineer, creating web applications for schools. In addition to writing he often spends his free time reading, walking, playing DDR, enjoying Scotch, playing video games and working on his Dungeons and Dragons miniatures.
At night, Jeroen fights aliens, the Borg, goblins and carnivorous soup. You can read all about these dreams in The Troll Warriors of Sheepbane.
