The Last Great American Magic Wins Novel of the Year!

Posted on March 6, 2017


My new novel, The Last Great American Magic, has been named Novel of the Year by Underground Book Reviews!

Chosen from 700 submissions, The Last Great American Magic was up against many, many worthy titles. It’s quite an honor, and I’m humbled…and elated.

From the announcement:

THE LAST GREAT AMERICAN MAGIC by L.C. Fiore is more than just an American epic. Historic fiction with a mythical twist, this exquisitely written novel is both thought-provoking and page-turning. The story follows the great Shawnee warrior Tecumseh, as he struggles with encroaching settlers. Tecumseh’s hate is softened when he falls in love with a woman captured in a raid, but his feeling of duty towards his people does not ebb. Violence and passion are raw in this story, and no aspect of Native American life is over-romanticized. Woven deftly throughout the book is a thread of magic, based around Shawnee traditions and rituals, which somehow manages to bring even more credence to the historic aspect of the story. With well-developed characters, a strong theme and captivating prose, THE LAST GREAT AMERICAN MAGIC is a must read for lovers of literature.

Congratulations to all the finalists. This is an honor I’ll always cherish.
