The Swampling King
Hungry demons roam the vast, sunless Swamp. To protect their people, swampling mages rely on a cursed blood magic that drives men mad. And for the crime of using it, the Storm Knights of the Nine Peaks hunt them relentlessly from sunlit mountain duchies, seeking to avenge a betrayal long past.
But something is stirring in the dark, and change is coming.
A warrior born to death and darkness, Zerill is willing to use whatever power she must to lead the swamplings into the light.
Reluctant heir to the throne of the Peaks, Prince Josen finds himself doubting the righteousness of an endless crusade.
And from the unexplored reaches of the Swamp comes a boy with the eyes of an eagle, foretold by ancient prophecy, who may bring salvation—or doom.
The world of man has fallen. Their armies are routed, their cities razed, their holy places desecrated. The greatest heroes of mankind have been defeated, one by one, seeking the architect of this destruction. At the top of a mountain at the end of the world, one man continues their quest.
Is he the last hero of humanity?
Or is he merely the last to die?
A thrilling fantasy short story!
In a world of elves and dwarves and sprites and mages, Tane Carver is a human with no gift but his wits. Which, to be fair, did get him into the world’s most prestigious university of magical technology.
Until his lack of magic was discovered. And then it all came crashing down.
But when a student is murdered on campus behind unbreakable wards, Tane gets a second chance. Solving an impossible crime should be easy for the man who fooled the university’s best mages for years. Except he’s not counting on the head constable being an old flame who isn’t so fond of him anymore. Or on Kadka, the half-crazy half-orc who insists she’s his partner—whether he likes it or not.
Not to mention the masked mage who keeps trying to kill him.
Luckily, outsmarting mages is what Tane does best.
