The third installment in the Imperial Chronicles has just been released. You can find it now on Amazon and Kobo. Other ereading sites will have it soon. Until then, head to Smashwords.
The Empire has reached its zenith of power and prosperity, but things are rarely as they seem.
As shadow spreads across the world, the Revered Order of Hunters scours the provinces for demon shrines and their fiendish worshipers, all while an eerie silence south of the Imperial border hints of a gathering storm. The emperor Severus struggles to maintain the recent peace and harmony, though he knows the growing dark touches all strata of society, from the highest official to the lowliest street actor, and no one is worthy of trust.
Far away, unbeknownst to the southron King of Kings and the Imperial government, the brother-sister heirs to the Red Throne of Haroon lay in hiding. But as a dark faith spreads by the sword across the Southern World, plunging ancient nations into chaos, not even well-born monarchs will escape these trials of SHADOW AND FLAME.
The third novel of the Imperial Chronicles.
To start at the beginning, read Unconquered Son and the sequel, Red Empire.
A little bit about writing this book:
Like most books I am happy with, I sat down and wrote this straight through. I took a lot of inspiration from both current events and from the ancient Greco-Roman world, as well as the parallels between the two. None of my readers so far have picked up on these, but I’m hopeful that one day people will. I have two more novels in this series planned (it will have five installments) with one due for November/early December and another set for January or mid-February.
Thanks to all my blog readers and those who have gone on to read my books. Just so you know, you can read a free book here.
