Synopsis for Each eBook:
#1 Trial of Stone A kingdom of death. A war for power and profit. Young heroes caught in the crossfire. Kodyn expected hardships along his journey to return a kidnapped girl to her father. Yet harsh deserts and cutthroat bandits prove far less lethal than the foes that await him in Shalandra, the City of the Dead. In the shadows of golden spires carved from mountain stone, currents of corruption and vice run deep. Priests of the god of death rule with an iron fist, imposing a rigid caste system that elevates some to a life of privilege and condemns others to miserable squalor. Together with Aisha, a fierce warrior from the north with the mystical ability to speak to the dead, Kodyn must survive the cesspool of high society deceit and betrayal. Polite smiles hide sharp knives. Killers, criminals, and bloodthirsty cultists lurk around every corner. Can these youths overcome impossible odds to save the realm?
#2 Crucible of Fortune Five young warriors, one mission. Will they stand together or die alone? Kodyn and Aisha are losing the battle to save the City of the Dead. Stripped of rank and wealth, they must use all their wits, skill, and courage to survive the cruel streets of Shalandra and bring justice for their murdered protector. Kodyn’s cunning and Aisha’s growing power over the dead are all that stands between them and an untimely end. New allies emerge to join their quest: a thief, an elite warrior-in-training, and a boy with ancient magical abilities. They face a desperate clash against death cultists, bloodthirsty criminal gangs, and the most powerful politicians in the kingdom. But will their bonds of unity triumph against greed and cruelty, or will the kingdom crumble around them?
#3 Storm of Chaos Against a rising tide of violence, heroes must risk everything for justice and peace. Rumblings of discord echo through the City of the Dead… Kodyn hunts the assassin that thwarted his efforts to bring down the most corrupt and powerful politicians in the city. Elite warrior-in-training Issa is thrust into a desperate battle to quell spreading riots. Cunning street thief Evren plots to eradicate the ruthless crime syndicate profiting from the violence. Aisha finds herself drawn deeper into the world of the spirits. Her growing powers could lead to madness—or the salvation of everyone in Shalandra. Together, the four young heroes and their allies must fight to bring peace and justice before their enemies unleash a storm of chaos, bloodshed, and death.
#4 Secrets of Blood To weather the storm of chaos and death, young heroes must dare to challenge the impossible. Civil war rages in the City of the Dead. The lowest castes have taken up arms in revolt. Blood runs thick on the golden streets of Shalandra. Amidst the uproar, Evren hunts down the leaderless, scattered brutes of the Ybrazhe Syndicate to put an end to their depredations and dispel the riots. Issa and her elite warriors battle rampaging mobs in a desperate fight to restore order. Kodyn and Aisha pursue killers that could lead them to not only the villains orchestrating the turmoil, but the monstrous foes lurking in the deep, dark places hidden beneath the city. Yet facing enemies far beyond their abilities to defeat alone, will they triumph against evil and put a stop to the chaos before all of Shalandra is destroyed?
#5 Ascension of Death Surrounded and trapped, no help in sight. The end of their mission…or the path to destiny? Shalandra has fallen. Monsters of legend have risen from their graves to claim the City of the Dead. Kodyn and Evren have only one hope of stopping the evil Iron Warlord: break into the holiest, most secure stronghold in the city and steal ancient relics imbued with world-shattering magics. Issa joins the ranks of Shalandra’s elite warriors in a desperate clash against the nightmare hordes flooding the streets and slaughtering every man, woman, and child. Aisha will face her greatest challenge yet, harnessing her mystical abilities to not only turn the tide of battle, but stop the prophesied Final Destruction. In the epic struggle to save their city, these young heroes will give their all to win the impossible battle—one that could decide the fate of the world!
#6 The Renegade Apprentice A desperate breakout. A perilous life on the streets. A fight to the death. Evren’s life as an apprentice priest is an endless torment, until he seizes the chance to escape his slavery. But his freedom, and his life, may be cut very short because the dark alleys of Vothmot hold their own dangers...some deadlier than others!
