The Storm’s Own Son: Book Three

The Storm’s Own Son: Book Three continues the epic Storm and Fire fantasy series!


By ruthless wit and bloodstained hand, Talaos has risen to the heights of power.

And yet, the dangers he faces are greater than ever. The war he has made his own is at a moment of decision, sharp as the edge of a blade. An army besieges the city he now calls home, and with it rides one of the personal emissaries of his true enemy, one of the Twelve Hands of the Living Prophet himself.

If he fails now, it will be the end… for him, and for everyone he has sworn to protect.

It went live on Amazon on October 13th, and in a week has rocketed to levels it took Book One a month to reach. As of this posting it is #2,807 overall on Amazon USA, and nearly the same in Germany and the UK. It is #1 in the Norse and Viking category.

Blood on Bronze is now available in a much-improved second edition via Sol Invictus Publishing!

The new edition is also more cleanly formatted, and includes a map of Zakran, city of a thousand thousands. Lastly, to distinguish it from the first edition, I’ve created a new cover:

The Storm’s Own Son: Book Two is live on Amazon

Edits complete. Published. Hurrah!

The most powerful sorcerer in the world wanted him dead, and failed. Now it is his turn.

Talaos is heir to mighty gifts of power. He has no one to guide him and plenty of enemies. His search for answers has taken him to the anarchic eastern land of Hunyos, and a colossal war. Amid siege, battle, conquest and deadly struggles for power, those answers wait to be found. But will he live to see them?
