An ancient hierarchy of wizards. Votaries of the old powers. Warlords, fiends and shadows. Where the otherworld is alive, nature is sovereign and balance is kept by the sword. These tales are driven by an assassin named Lorth of Ostarin, a complex character with a bent towards bringing things to their darkest ends. Following his shady exploits, each book stands alone, happening in the same world with Lorth and some of the other characters appearing throughout.
Includes books 1-4, a full glossary and links to high resolution maps.
The Hunter's Rede, Book One. A swords-and-sorcery tale of one warrior's transformation by the forces of war, wizardry, betrayal and love. In this tale, Lorth discovers his destiny when his homeland is occupied by a cruel warlord with no respect for the deeper powers of the world.
The Gray Isles, Book Two. Some fish stories should be taken seriously. Very seriously. In this story, Lorth sets off on a routine mission and is drawn into the cataclysmic fate of an Otherworld being that rules the sea.
The Winged Hunter, Book Three. An immortal hunter, a gardener, and some very naughty wizards. In this story Lorth must use his darker abilities to help two powerful wizards protect a maiden from a diabolical immortal predator bent on fulfilling a curse.
The Riven God, Book Four. His greatest challenge yet, Lorth falls afoul of a backwater monarchy stained by evil, a wayward princess, and a dark order of warlocks wreaking ruin. When the wizards declare war, the northern seas churn with unrest and a war god keeps his secrets.
