At last! We have our very own lesbianGame of Thrones in lesfic!! YES! Eliza Andrews‘ recently released “Princess of Dorsa,” Book 1 of the Chronicles of Dorsa, delivered just as Andrews promised when she announced that she’d be giving us lesfic readers our very own Game of Thrones (GoT)!! I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to beta-read an advance copy (Ta, Eliza!) and re-read the final version when it was out on Amazon….will be re-reading this, tbh! Anyway, Andrews, with her usual knack for weaving compelling stories with her brilliant writing style, gives Mr. Martin a run for his money. I was reeling after devouring it literally in one bated breath. I wanted MORE!!!

There was so much going on in this Book 1, I was beside meself with utter amazement and awe because I couldn’t believe I was actually reading about this whole universe that Andrews so richly created, inspired by GoT‘s, complete with the fabulous Empire consisting of the Four Realms (with the West being the largest most populated, and the East being the desert, strange and exotic, rich with myths and superstitions that the West and other Realms steered clear of), conquered by an Emperor from a Noble House, with Wise Men (like the Maesters in GoT) as the Empire’s influential advisers besides the military commanders. The Empire, as in GoT, obviously was always under threats of rebellion or attacks either from within the walls of the Realms or beyond its territories. So, Andrews’ Empire was ruled by the noble house, House of Dorsa. Princess Natasia aka Tasia was the daughter of its king, Emperor Andreth, future Empress-in-waiting. The Wise Men from the House of Wisdom, just like the Maesters from the Citadel in GoT, were an order of scholars, healers, messengers and scientists. I was utterly enthralled by Andrews’ vivid descriptions of the surroundings, the designs, the colours, the outfits of the different characters. They were visually stunning in me mind!

Lesbian “Game of Thrones” aka “Princess of Dorsa” (Yet to be Published)

– by Eliza Andrews

You know, I’ve been blessed recently with the discovery of some unbelievably talented indie lesfic authors whom I would have never known about had it not been for either recommendations from some FB group members that turned out to be me cuppa tea or from me own accidental discovery.

Eliza Andrews is the latest recommended indie lesbian author (by fellow Lesfic Indie Style group member, Evelyn Smith. Cheers, mate!), who grabbed me attention with this line: “GoT…with lesbians” and 👇 link…

GoT-lez

I mean, as a HUGE GoT fan and a lesbian, I naturally felt it was me solemn duty to click on the “alluring” link, just to find out what Andrews meant by LESBIANGame of Thrones,” obvs! 😏 Uhh…let’s just say, I was thoroughly satisfied! 😏 Well played, Evelyn, well played! *slow clap*

Now, I’d never heard of Andrews before, let alone read anything of hers, so I didn’t know how her writing and style would fit with what I always look for in lesfic/genfic. Needless to say, intrigued was an understatement. After reading all 9 brilliantly written draft chapters of the lesbian GoT entitled, “Princess of Dorsa,” Book One of the planned “Chronicles of Dorsa” series, I was HOOKED. I really enjoyed her writing style, language and plot structure. Her description of the surroundings were vivid and sound. The slew of characters she introduced piqued me curiosity to no end! I already love the main characters – Tasia (Princess of Dorsa), Emperor of Dorsa’s eldest child and heir to the throne, and Roslyn, the moody, quiet warrior, assigned to protect Tasia, a job she never asked for, a bodyguard Tasia never wanted.  So, the natural order? Sparks. Fly. Temper. Flares. Ohhh…the verbal jabs between these two! Simply DEELISH!!

As for the plot and the universe created, Andrews has everything in place perfectly. The geographical areas, the relevant Houses, Wise Men (like Maesters), various groups that may or may not be the Empire’s allies, wars, politics, conspiracies, etc. Even a MAP showing the entire geography of the Empire is already in situ. Rough draft for now but does the job. They’re all there for readers like me to explore and so much more, me reckons!  I can only imagine how much more fun it’s going to be when the full-length novel is out! My ultimate excitement is obviously the fact that we’re going to get our very own “Game of Thrones” headed by LESBIANS!!!!! YAY!

So, if you’re a fan of GoT’s who happen to be a lesbian, or have been wishing (like I have!) there were a lesbian GoT to read and enjoy, then this may be your cuppa! Just go to Andrews’ site and read the draft chapters. See if you like it. Per Andrews, the final version will be slightly different than the drafts because of story edits and what not (obvs!). But the drafts at least give us an idea of what the story’s general direction is going to be, the characters, the situations, the intro of various potential plots or diversion, etc. Anyway, the book will be published and released sometime soon (hopefully!). I’m literally CHUFFED to bits, to put it mildly!

Anyway, here’s the link to “Princess of Dorsa” with Andrews’ WIP chapter releases…[x]
