A Work in Progress

Pre-Order The Silverblade Prophecy Today!

Throughout the ages, messiahs have come and gone, and all have fallen.
After centuries of exile, Bantaka the Godslayer is active once more. The Seer manipulates the strands of Time and Space to bring together Pankea’s only hope: the most unlikely motley of misfits and cut-throats in the land, and a godling half-breed who’s bloodline heritage holds the key to saving—or dooming—all Existence.
Destined to fulfill an ancient prophecy to “pierce the heart of her ancestor,” Marian Silverblade is hailed as the current messiah of her age. But prophecies often get misinterpreted. And Lord Calahan Darkblade—Marian’s ancestor and Bantaka’s Herald—has plans of his own….

The Silverblade Prophecy is the first book in The Messiahs War Trilogy. When destinies collide in a war unlike anything before seen on Pankea, the choices made by the most unlikely of heroes may determine the outcome.

SpecMusicMuse Review: Thrall by Steven Shrewsbury

It’s the antediluvian age, and Gorias la Gaul is a legend among legends—even if he is over seven hundred years old and with a bad back. But when a cult of necromancers tries to resurrect a sadistic bard with the knowledge that can destroy the world, can even Gorias save the day—especially when one of the villains is his son?

With Thrall, Shrewsbury delivers a grim and gritty Sword & Sorcery tale, one that is more than just a straightforward hack n’ slash. Not that there’s no hacking and slashing, there’s actually plenty. But you’ll also find deep characterization and moral quandaries. This is no happy campy “good vs. evil” story, more like badass vs. badass vs. undead badass vs. even more evil badass while vs. each other. If you’re a fan of Conan, Red Sonja, or Fafhrd then will love Gorias.

 

Best to read while listening to: the soundtrack to Conan the Barbarian. Duh! Also, Slayer.
