An Ancient Revival

A Sapphic Queer Fantasy Novel

Freedom. Queerdom. Magic.

Evie McGee’s always had this whisper inside but tried to ignore it to live a “responsible life.” But soon fate comes for her, and she has to determine if she’s ready for the past to show up at her honest-to-goddess doorstep and if she’ll follow. Will she remember her life outside the world she knows? Does she want to accept her rainbow heart? And can she be convinced that her place in the puzzle matters?

An Ancient Revival reminds us that weaving our past, present, and future, gives us a chance to not only become who we long to be… But in recreating ourselves, we can revive our very essence, and we can bring forth our ancientness.

Author. CEO. LGBT+.

Virginia James

This book began to pour out of my soul while on the road in 2023. To say it was unexpected is putting it mildly.

An Ancient Revival isn’t what I thought I’d be writing first, in terms of a book-book. But as the inner (LGBT+) muse kept typing away as the weeks went on, it became something more than an outline or scenes here or there.

It became representation. It became a chance for LGBTQ+ folks to be supported and heard. And it became an opportunity for any of us, myself included, to realize the depths of our soul’s work in new ways.

A Brilliant Ride

Unpredictable and the type to give you an answer and 100 more questions, I found myself more and more drawn in… Characters are interesting and often relatable and the real meat of what’s going on has left me eagerly waiting for what’s coming next! I will be patiently waiting.


I didn’t want it to end!

What an enthralling story full of twists and turns. Beautifully written, I didn’t want the book to end.

I impatiently await the next book in the series!


Complex women characters and queer love

I was lucky to read this book even before its official publication and it’s one of my favorite books of the year! V. James created an immersive story with complex and strong women in their own way, and it’s always a joy to read more queer stories where friendship, romance, and family all play a role in the characters’ arc.

Grab a hot beverage, a cozy blanket, your fur baby if you have one, and go enjoy this novel! I cannot wait to read the next installment, whenever it comes out!

Coming in 2024!

We couldn’t stop at one. The journey continues!

When An Ancient Revival ended, the sequel to Evie’s journey started to fall out of my soul within days. She just couldn’t be forgotten about!

Circle back before the end of the year for the next book in the Revival series!
