Welcome to “The Remnants” - Book one in the Kings of Pendar series.
The Kingdom of Pendar has been at peace for centuries. Man and dwarf live side by side under beloved King Samuel Ellingstone. Now that peace is being threatened.
Orgle, ruler of the gnomes, has brought war to Pendar. Aided by a mysterious talisman, he seeks to fulfill his destiny: to unite his fellow gnomes and bring an end to the Ellingstone bloodline, including the young heir.
Orgle’s powerful army, fueled by an unnatural alliance, seems unstoppable. Leaving the king to wonder if the towering granite walls of Pendar will be strong enough to hold back the gnome invaders, and if the royal family will survive to unite their people and restore peace to Pendar once again?
A well written adventure with wonderful character development and creative plot lines that left me excited to learn where Mr Skog would take the good folks of Pendar next. For a first effort this was well done. Looking forward to the next book in The Kings of Pendar saga and to see the continued growth in Mr Skog's writing style.. With another solid delivery like The Remnants Mr Skog will land on my list of must buy authors such as Lackey, Martin and Feist.

This is a very well written story!! The action was nonstop and I couldn't put the book down! I can't wait to find out what happens next!!

Great read... It reminds me a little of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy... The battle scenes are very descriptive and put you right there in the middle of them. But not in a gruesome way... I would defintely recommend this.
The directions on how to write my biography suggest telling my readers interesting details about myself. That left me scratching my mostly bald head trying to think of what folks would find interesting. I guess I'm a product of my Minnesota upbringing, I like to say "my lack of flare is my flare".
After high school and a couple of years at the local community college I spent an enlistment in the United States Air Force providing security for the air base before finishing up my B.S. in Engineering Technology and Geography at St. Cloud State University.
In my free time I enjoy a long run or a session in the weight room, nothing cures writers block like an early morning run on the weekend. Sunrises really are inspiring!
My beautiful wife, who is one of my biggest cheerleaders, calls me her man-child for my goofy sense of humor and how I act like one of our kids most of the time. I try to bring all these values and traits, that I find to be so important in my own life, to my characters in hopes that my readers can relate to them and immerse themselves into the story.
Hopefully this biography helps you, the reader, to get to know me just a little bit and gives you some background. Thanks for taking the time to let me tell you about myself.
Welcome to The Kings of Pendar, enjoy the adventure!
