Tracked by minions of the evil Shin-il priests, the Dragon-Called twins, Rowyn and Willoe, journey on a quest to the Hoarfrost Mountains. These lands are rife with dangers, including savage Sköll Wolves and the fearsome Ice Giants, and may hide more than just the sought-after Sword and the Staff. Devices created by dragons and rumored to control the Others and the Fire Within, while preventing one of the twins from dying to satisfy the Covenant.
Back at Westhedge, unrest stirs as it becomes clear that a newly self-crowned king, and his mentor that controls the throne, will do whatever is necessary to keep their tenuous hold on the Kingdom of Cainwen, the twins' homeland.
On the other side of Taran, the Kingdom of Haldane and the Ice Queen hold surprises that shatter everything the twins believed about their past.
As a friendship develops between a lonely priest and a prince, the priest must make unprecedented decisions that may have ramifications far beyond anything he could imagine.
The key to opposing the foreign Shin-il Priests and taking back Taran lies in an all-out assault on Tierran’s Wall – built to be impregnable. Sellswords, Blood Stalkers and Shades, creatures as much dead as alive, will do anything to prevent the twins from succeeding. Unexpected allies may provide the help they need to overcome these obstacles, but an unimaginable betrayal may end the Covenant and destroy the twins ability to defeat the Great Evil, the Olcas Mogwai.
About the Author
Writing has always been in Peter's blood. His love of writing started in his early teens when he cut his teeth on Sci-Fi and the passion never left him. Peter lives in Southern California with his beautiful and fetching wife, along with two exceedingly talkative cats. At an early age, Peter was introduced to Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land and has been an avid reader ever since. As a teen, he picked up a copy of Lord of the Rings and expanded his love of reading to include Medieval Fantasy. By 18 years of age, he knew he wanted to be an author, but life got in the way, and his dreams were put on hold - until 2012 when he turned his energy to writing. Outside of writing he obtained a Master of Science in Information Systems while working in the private & public sectors, academia, and the field of ministry. His diverse work life has provided a wealth of experience that has helped him to understand his characters and the way in which they deal with their trials and tribulations - overcoming obstacles that transform their lives. The process of how some characters fail, and others rise above their own expectations, mimics his personal life. The passion and fire of a life led without regret is what he hopes to bring to his stories. As the Dragon-Called tell us: Stay True to Your Fire Within!
