Today, I’m excited to share with you a new release coming out this week: Ignatius and the Swords of Nostaw by David Mucci. Books Forward was kind enough to bring this release to my attention stating it was a fantasy that had: an impossible mission, led by an unlikely hero, meeting otherworldly creatures, and an epic adventure. It’s one I’m excited to read after its release!
D.A. Mucci has been an Emergency Room physician for close to 40 years, but the pandemic brought forth new horrors in the ER. Writing fantasy fiction in his spare time became a coping mechanism and even an enjoyable escape from dealing with the realities of Covid patients at work. As Mucci’s passion for writing emerged, so did his new publishing firm, St Barts Publishing LLC in St Augustine, FL.
Mucci graduated from St. Georges University School of Medicine, Grenada in 1981. After working in hospitals in Connecticut and Florida, he now works as an independent contractor and is able to split his time between these two places he calls home with his wife Jeanne by his side. He looks forward to writing more books in his new fantasy series and hopes they provide readers the same escape it brought him. Learn more about the author and Iggy’s adventures at: DAMucci.com

Ignatius and the Swords of Nostaw is the first in an action-packed series perfect for readers who love an impossible mission led by an unlikely hero.
The coming-of-age story follows teenager Ignatius (nicknamed “Iggy”) who finds himself transported to a medieval world filled with magic. In the Kingdom of Skye, Iggy develops special powers and accomplishes quests in an effort to find his way home, fighting the evildoers along the way. While the genre is fantasy and the setting includes magic, mythological creatures, celestial races and different lands, action adventure is the undercurrent of the writing style, unveiling clues and surprises as the plot unfolds.
This YA fantasy is perfect for both teens and adults, as it gently reminds us that we are responsible for our destiny – and the most unexpected people can be the best teachers.
