Overview

Welcome to War-Bringer, a short story prequel to the best-selling Twinborn Trilogy.

To the sorcerers he was a failure. To the knights, little more than a squire. To the ogres, he was War-Bringer.

Stationed on the border of the ogrelands, he and his fellow knights have been ordered to drive back the ogre incursion and put an end to their raiding.

Meet the Author

Born in New Hampshire in 1977, J.S. Morin found himself captivated by the wonders of fantasy novels at a young age. He was introduced to the genre via the works of R.A. Salvatore, Ed Greenwood, and Margaret Weiss and Tracy Hickman. He loved exploring other people’s worlds, from Shadowdale to Hyrule. He also quickly found Dungeons and Dragons to be a creative outlet for stories, characters, and new worlds of his own creation.

His other passion was for building and designing things, and when it came time to choose a career, he went down that road. A Mechanical Engineer by day, he spends his evenings with his wife in their New Hampshire home, enjoying the simplicity of life in a quiet state.

By night he dreams elaborate dreams of visiting fanciful worlds, performing acts of heroism, and solving intriguing puzzles, which inspire him to craft stories that he hopes will help shape the lives of the next generation of fantasy readers. He hopes to avoid finishing growing up.

    Enticing action- filled prequel

    J.S. Morin packs action, adventure, and magic into this 23 page prequel that reads more like the action-gripped opening chapter of a fantastic warrior novel. Definitely want to follow this story about War Bringer, the young knight who failed at his scorcerer training, but uses his knowledge to survive and weilds powerful magic with his distinctive sword, beginning with the aftermath of an opening battle between knights and ogres in the forest and eventually challenging the ogre Chieftan.

    War-Bringer showcases the skills and strategy that got Brannis his own command at such a young age. As an introduction, of sorts, to the Twinborn Trilogy, it fills in some details about the world we are about to encounter.
