Is Your Work, Unholy Pursuit, and Leigh Bardugo’s the same?

I was asked the question above.

Sorry to say I’d never heard of Ms. Leigh Bardugo until I was asked if our works were the same?

I can’t say yes or no for I have not read any of her books yet.

I read the except of this one and the only similarity I can see so far is we are both talking about fighting evil and warrior saints.

But I thanks the readers for seeing similarities. But I think you need to read Unholy Pursuit to discover the similarities between the two books.

Her character’s name is Nikolai Lantsov

Mine’s name is Nikola Machiavelli. A direct descendants of Niccolo Machiavelli, the author of the Prince.

Nikolai Lantsov has always had a gift for the impossible. No one knows what he endured in his country’s bloody civil war—and he intends to keep it that way. Now, as enemies gather at his weakened borders, the young king must find a way to refill Ravka’s coffers, forge new alliances, and stop a rising threat to the once-great Grisha Army.

Yet with every day a dark magic within him grows stronger, threatening to destroy all he has built. With the help of a young monk and a legendary Grisha Squaller, Nikolai will journey to the places in Ravka where the deepest magic survives to vanquish the terrible legacy inside him. He will risk everything to save his country and himself. But some secrets aren’t meant to stay buried—and some wounds aren’t meant to heal.

This guy, this young king sounds like a much nicer person than Nikola Machiavelli. At least he’s trying not to do evil. Nikola Machiavelli is trying his earnest to do all the bad he can get his hands on and drag up hell itself.

I wouldn’t dare place a monk in the room with Nikola Machiavelli.

She’s quite successful and I wish her well.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

  1. One major difference is Leigh Bardugo’s books are strictly young adults. Or books written strictly for teenagers. Unholy Pursuit has a lot more adult situations.

    No, these two authors are great in their own rights. A. White’s books are for grown ups. They don’t follow the common format of young adult literature. Some of these stories, young adult stories I feel are an insult to people who have actually suffered in this world.

    Frankly, I think this is a rude question to ask an author. You just don’t go to let’s say Louis Vuitton asking about Prada.

    • Hi Bree, no, I wouldn’t go in a Louis Vuitton asking about a Prada. I might get thrown out of the store. 🙂
      I try to allow all readers a chance to ask whatever question comes to mind. I understand what you are saying but I didn’t mind. It didn’t take away anything from my work. My work is older than Leigh Bardugo’s.

    I downloaded and I read them both Unholy Pursuit is a book for grown up who have experienced life. The King of Scars is more young adult but each are great stories. Lots of action.
