In the land of Kymru, High King Arthur has designated the talented pillars of society as the Gifted. These Gifted peoples are essential to his empire. When they are taken captive by the Corianans, King Arthur confronts his mortal enemy, Havgan the Warleader—a formidable opponent backed by menacing powers that threaten to end the magic in Kymru. Forced to enter a treacherous realm where captives are collared and sacrificed, where ruthless territorial boundaries are drawn and enforced, and where death by poisoning and torture are the norm, King Arthur and those loyal to him must fight to save their way of life and to liberate the Gifted. In this captivating and stirring fantasy, only the strongest survive in the pursuit of freedom. Only the deepest passion will drive away the evil that lurks in this mystical land of fragile kingdoms, powerful warlords, and ancient magic.
ReviewsPast Praise for Crimson Fire: ". . . excellent fantasy . . . There is plenty of action, irony, and emotion in this tale of two kinds of people: religious zealots and paranormals. This is a richly crafted book. We look forward to reviewing the rest of the series and rated this book a score of five hearts." ~ Bob Spear, Heartland Reviews "Night Bird's Reign is an intriguing story; one that will wow many fantasy readers ... At over 500 books, there is a lot to take in. Don't expect this to be a quick read, but do expect it to be gripping." ~ Round Table Reviews Past Praise for Night Bird's Reign: GRADE: A "This is an epic novel — fat in heft, rich on detail. The characters of Night Bird's Reign really grab the reader, and they do not--let me repeat do not--let go...
