Overview

The Guardian of Decay and the Guardian of Earth are at war. Only when the Guardian of Earth forges a powerful sword, the Luzblad, is there a weapon strong enough to restore order to the Earth, but as the gods clash, the spirit of one of the Guardians becomes trapped within the godly blood used to forge the sword. Darkness falls, and the secret of the Luzblad becomes lost in time.
Centuries later, the wayward son of a SangreLin prince must trace his past within the malevolent SangreLin Empire. When Tallic Shawen realizes that it is his SangreLin blood that allows him to harness the Luzblad's power, he must embrace his dark roots in order to restore balance to the world. Years of slavery and battles with beasts and men harden Shawen into a formidable soldier, but when confronted with the power that lurks within the Luzblad, he must also face his own weaknesses. Though he will encounter many friends and allies during his journey, even more enemies will stand in his way. Only Tallic can stop the SangreLin Empire from thrusting the Freelands into an even darker age.

    "Medieval Adventure - Romance - Heroism Above and Beyond"

    The first of a two-part epic fantasy adventure 'The Exiled Son' takes the reader on a journey into a time when a ruthless leader, Yaernich, rules the SangreLin Dynasty with merciless dominance. Lasech, his older brother - meek and merciful is imprisoned to a life of torment and ridicule. Under Yaernich's control, Lasech becomes his brother's servant - expected to fulfill his brother's every wish and command. Paranoid, Yaernich unjustly accuses his brother of treason. Upon his brother's command, Lasech is detained to the corner of darkness in a dungeon to await his final punishment. It is there that Lasech encounters visions from beyond - spirits of his ancestors. The spirits divulge to him a near future in which Lasech's love of his life, Kiene, will give birth to their son, Tallic, who will carry on his father's quest for a peaceful humanity. They encourage him to be brave as the end comes for him, for his death will mark a new beginning for humankind. Leading Lasech to the courtyard in the town square of SangreLin, several thousand followers wanting to see his blood shed throw rotten food, spitting and violently punching him as he passes by. Tied with leather straps to a pole, he endures hours of gruesome torture by the hands of the guards. Showing no fear and an abundance of courage, Lasech spit at the ground of his brother's feet. Pinned to the wooden pole, Yaernich fires the first of two arrows - lodging them deep into his brother's shoulder. The persecution proceeded when the guards led a horse directly behind him and stopped. Fastening the end of a chain to the horse, they took the other end engulfed with razors and inch long spikes, and wrapped it around the arrows connected to Lasech's shoulders. A cloaked figure emerged and lifted his hood. Lasech gasped with anguish as he recognized him as a former beloved student. Yaernich dropped his hand and the guard cracked the whip sending the horse into a gallop. Roaring applause could be heard from the crowd as Lasech's life drained from his tortured body. The story moves forward to sixteen years later and introduces to the reader, Lasech's son, Tallic. Like his father, Tallic was courageous and heroic. However, he would soon face his own trial and tribulations. After saving the life of a young maiden in distress, he is taken into captivity. Threatening the life of his mother, he is made to fight to the death for his own life, as well as hers. The reader takes a journey alongside Tallic, as he fights against beasts and evil men in a quest to abolish dictatorship. The author's account of this era is quite astonishing as he utilizes a brilliant imagination in his writing. He creates a world so very different than we know, but at the same time - he incorporates the need we all have for equality and balance in our own lives, and the lives of others. I found this to be an extraordinary tale of fantasy mixed with an underlying absolute truth. Looking for a fresh new writer - Mattius C. S. White is your next upcoming new author in this genre!
