TG Geeks Webcast Episode 362
The Two Gay Geeks 🏳️🌈 have a chat with KD Edwards, author of “The Tarot Sequence” novels and Josh Hurley who has narrated The Last Sun and The Hanged Man, the first two books of “The Tarot Sequence” for Audible dot com. This was such an exciting interview opportunity and there is a little treat in the last part of the interview that you will not want to miss. Have a listen and we hope you enjoy this as much as we did.
About KD Edwards
K.D. lives and writes in North Carolina, but has spent time in Massachusetts, Maine, Colorado, New Hampshire, Montana, and Washington. (Common theme until NC: Snow. So, so much snow.)
Mercifully short careers in food service, interactive television, corporate banking, retail management, and bariatric furniture have led to a much less short career in Higher Education.
The first book in his urban fantasy series THE TAROT SEQUENCE, called The Last Sun, was published by Pyr in June 2018. The third installment, The Hourglass Throne, is expected soon.
About Josh Hurley
Josh Hurley is an actor, narrator, and improv & sketch comedy performer currently residing in New York City. Josh grew up in Southeast Idaho and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Acting/Directing from Idaho State University.

He is co-creator of his hometown improv group ‘The Comedy Project’ and has performed with many sketch groups and improv teams at different theaters and venues throughout New York City.
In addition to voicing ‘The Tarot Sequence’ by K.D. Edwards, recent series include ‘The Iron Raven’ (in the Iron Fey series) by Julie Kagawa‘, and ‘The Dragonrider Heritage’ series by Nicole Conway. Other recent multicast audiobook projects include ‘Letters From Camp’ starring Jamie Lee Curtis, the ‘Rivals!’ series by Scott McCormick, ‘American Girl’ by Wendy Walker, and ‘Camp Red Moon’ by R.L. Stine. Hurley also performed the ‘Choose Your Own Adventure’ audiobook, ‘The Abominable Snowman’ and voiced characters for ‘Starfinder’, both interactive experiences on Amazon Alexa.
Josh geeks out over board games, VR gaming, anything Stephen King, D&D’ing with friends, dogs AND cats, and to embellish verbose biographies with words like “embellish” and “verbose”. Thanks to you, all the amazing audiobook listeners out there, who keep the love of great stories and storytelling alive and well.
The Last Sun
In this debut novel and series starter, the last member of a murdered House searches for a missing nobleman and uncovers clues about his own tortured past. Rune Saint John, the last child of the fallen Sun Court, is hired to search for Lady Judgment’s missing son, Addam, on New Atlantis, the island city where the Atlanteans moved after ordinary humans destroyed their original home. With his companion and bodyguard, Brand, he questions Addam’s relatives and business contacts through the highest ranks of the nobles of New Atlantis. But as they investigate, they uncover more than a missing man: a legendary creature connected to the secret of the massacre of Rune’s Court. In looking for Addam, can Rune find the truth behind his family’s death and the torments of his past?
The Hanged Man
The last member of a murdered House tries to protect his ward from forced marriage to a monster while uncovering clues to his own tortured past. “The Tarot Sequence” imagines a modern-day Atlantis off the coast of Massachusetts, governed by powerful Courts based on the traditional Tarot deck. Rune Saint John, last child of the fallen Sun Throne, is backed into a fight of high court magic and political appetites in a desperate bid to protect his ward, Max, from a forced marital alliance with the Hanged Man. Rune’s resistance will take him to the island’s dankest corners, including a red light district made of moored ghost ships; a surreal skyscraper farm; and the floor of the ruling Convocation, where a gathering of Arcana will change Rune’s life forever.
The Hourglass Throne
As Rune Saint John grapples with the challenges of assuming the Sun Throne, a powerful barrier appears around New Atlantis’s famed rejuvenation center. But who could have created such formidable magic . . . what do they want from the immortality clinic . . . and what remains of the dozens trapped inside?
Though Rune and his lifelong bodyguard Brand are tasked with investigating the mysterious barrier, Rune is also busy settling into his new life at court. Claiming his father’s throne has irrevocably thrown him into the precarious world of political deception, and he must secure relationships with newfound allies in time to keep his growing found family safe. His relationship with his lover, Addam Saint Nicholas, raises additional political complications they must navigate. But he and Brand soon discover that the power behind the barrier holds a much more insidious, far-reaching threat to his family, to his people, and to the world.
Now, the rulers of New Atlantis must confront an enemy both new and ancient as the flow of time itself is drawn into the conflict. And as Rune finds himself inexorably drawn back to the fall of his father’s court and his own torture at the hands of masked conspirators, the secrets that he has long guarded will be dragged into the light—changing the Sun Throne, and New Atlantis, forever.
The climax of the first trilogy in the nine-book Tarot Sequence, The Hourglass Throne delivers epic urban fantasy that blends humor, fast-paced action, and political intrigue.
