All the World's Colors
by James W. George


GENRE: History-Inspired Fantasy



Book one of a brand-new, epic fantasy series by master historical story-teller, James W. George.

Something inconceivable has happened, and all the world's colors are about to bleed...

Kellia. Kellia the Red. Pagan, seafaring warriors of ancient renown. They have sailed west, ever west, and have discovered an awe-inspiring, unknown land. Is it their salvation, or the seed of their destruction?

Merova and the Throne of Blue. Wealthy, cultured, and the ultimate matriarchy. Kellia’s ancient nemesis, and a realm of secrets, intrigue, and treachery.

The Holy Domain of Sanctia. Piety, sacrifice, and faith. They have a spiritual duty to spread the truth across the seas, and they will sail under the sacred banner of green.

The Confederation of Orange. Cynical, profiteering financiers and lovers of pleasure. If there is a new discovery in this world, they will be poised to exploit it.

Fans of historical fiction and fantasy will delight in this epic saga of empire, conflict, and power.



Of course, he had seen death before.  Although fairly young, he shuddered to think how many corpses he had seen.  Hapless souls who expired aboard ships and were callously tossed overboard.  Unfortunate losers who handled their ale poorly, drunkenly challenged the wrong opponent, and were rewarded with an axe permanently embedded in their forehead.  And the old.  Always, there was the revulsive, odious, inevitable triumph of death among the elderly.  How often Olmar, the tailor’s son, had been called upon to drag corpses from their hovel and prepare their funeral pyre.

But suddenly stumbling over a heap of unexpected death in a strange and distant land proved to be too much, and Olmar shrieked like a woman.  In fact, it wasn’t merely one corpse; it was two.  And Olmar didn’t merely trip over the departed Kellian.  He actually tripped over his plump, lifeless body and fell to the ground, until his face was mere inches from a second victim, a hideous, blood-caked cadaver with a squinty green eye mercilessly sliced away.  The son-of-a-tailor childishly clenched his eyes shut and fought the urge to vomit.

He quickly realized he had little, if any, desire to be face-to-face with a blood-caked, squinty, one-eyed corpse.  They were so close that Olmar might be retching from his hideous breath, if only there was breath remaining.  Regaining his faculties, he leapt to his feet and tried to comprehend what had happened.

It was obvious, even in the torrential downpour, that a brutal struggle had taken place, and two victims lay dead.  Had they slaughtered each other, or were they victims of another party?  Olmar shuddered at the notion this virgin land might be rife with enemies after all.  An indigenous people?   Or mercenaries in the service of the Blue?  He inadvertently clutched his weapon as he scanned the drenched, muddy landscape.



This book is such an interesting, intriguing, compelling, and fascinating historical fantasy book!!

This book is the perfect book for just dipping your toes into the historical fantasy world as it is a quick read of only 110 pages!  As most fans of this genre know these books tend to run on the longer side.  So, this was a nice change of pace and it allows for other readers new to the genre a chance to try it out without a long-time commitment.

I was intrigued by the author’s world-building and the development of such unique creatures.

This book has strong world building, stimulating and suspenseful fight scenes, thrilling drama, stirring vengeance, interesting characters – and offers the reader an enjoyable, steady paced read!

I really liked the extra addition to the book besides the story.  This book included a map at the beginning of the book.  It showed a map of the Known World, where the story takes place.  It was great to see all the lands and areas that are mentioned in this book.  It showed where each character group resides and the distance between them.

I loved the amount of historical content the author included.  It’s clear he did a thorough and extensive amount of research.  That plus his love and passion of history and historical fiction that is evidently shown from page one.

I really liked the story line concept and found it very intriguing!

I really liked that all the characters each brought something unique, rare, and personal to the story.  However, at times the amount of characters and cultures being represented felt overwhelming and confusing.  I would have loved a character reference section at the beginning or end of the book so that I could quickly look up who that character was and then jump back into the story.

I also found it puzzling that many of the chapters were titled the same even though they didn’t always feature the same POV or other chapters titled other names featured said character.  It certainly got a bit confusing!

It’s striking how this book is split into two parts.  Part One lasts 78 pages, while Part Two is only a mere 32 pages.  Yet, there is so much content and story in just 110 pages!!  It’s impressive that the author was able to tell such a spectacular tale in such a short number of pages!!  He truly made every word and every page count!!

I would like to point out that there are some profanity words used throughout the book.  This didn’t bother me, but I wanted to mention it as this book may be suggested for younger readers and this could be a red flag for their parents.

There are some predictable scenes.  However, there are still a few very unexpected twists and turns that you won’t see coming!

This book ends with a big cliffhanger and leaves you with more questions than answers.  I am not a fan of cliffhangers, but I understand their importance and their place in book series.  So, I respect the author’s use of ending his book on such a suspenseful and climactic note.

This book is Book One in The Queen of the Blue Book Series.  This book can absolutely be read as a standalone.  There are significant insinuations that there will be at least a second book coming out.  I really enjoyed book one and can’t wait to check out the other upcoming books in this book series!!

All in all, there were just a couple hang-ups for me, but overall, I still enjoyed reading this book and would still recommend it!  I think all historical fans and fantasy readers will like this book too – and this book series!  So, add it to your TBR List and get to reading - you won't be disappointed!

James W. George is a lover of history and historical fiction. He is a graduate of Boston University, a military veteran, and he is currently residing in Virginia with his wife and children.

He published his critically-acclaimed debut novel, "My Father’s Kingdom", in January 2017. The novel depicted the prelude to King Philip’s War in 1671 New England. The Indie View said: “Five stars...This is high historical drama handled wonderfully…a tale that will fully engage you on every level.”

"My Father’s Kingdom" is a planned trilogy, and book two, "The Prophet and the Witch", was published in September 2017. This is an epic novel that spans the entire conflict of King Philip’s War, and includes such notable historical figures as Josiah Winslow, Increase Mather, Metacomet, Benjamin Church, and Mary Rowlandson. The Literary Titan awarded it five stars and a gold medal for October 2017. “Expertly written and instantly engaging from the first few pages…I was captivated...one of the more intellectual of reads."

In 2020, he turned his attention to history-inspired fantasy and composed book one of an epic new series, "All the World's Colors."

He is looking forward to future books in these two series, and will enthusiastically reply to any questions, comments, insights, or witticisms posted to his Goodreads page.
