March 13, 2015 - PRLog -- Xavier Axelson's debut novel, Velvet released through Seventh Window Publications centers around Virago, the royal tailor of a corrupt prince. Left to care for his blind brother, Virago devotes himself to his trade until an unexpected delivery changes his life, and a wandering minstrel knocks on his door. Loosely based on the 14th Century Laws of Sumptuary, Velvet takes readers to a land where cruelty is disguised as allegiance, loyalty is masked by obligation and the laws of sumptuary govern the people, nothing is more dangerous than Velvet.

The story, inspired by 14th Century Laws of Sumptuary/Apparel, and a velvet shoe pictured in Vogue Magazine, garnered immediate praise from readers and critics.

"For a first book, this one is a success." The Paranormal Romance Guild

"Given the popularity and success of shows such as "The Tudors" and "Game of Thrones," "Velvet" is a refreshing addition to the genre." Edge Magazine

"Mr. Axelson pens "Velvet" a dark medieval fantasy with a balance of drama and romance, in a very well written, totally fascinating plot." My Cozie Corner Book Reviews

In a recent romance blog, Mr. Axelson stated, "by the time I was done writing Velvet, I realized it was a story about loyalty, albeit, blind and painful loyalty but at its core Velvet, to me, is about the price we pay by being loyal. It is also about bullying, obsession, lust, greed and madness…oh yes, and peacocks."
