After years of lying, scheming, and dangerous manipulation, Vin Vanbly finally gets what's coming to him: love.

How can he survive unstoppable, uncontrollable love when his very nature demands he control everything? Clues about his one true love-tantalizingly hinted at in each of the books in The Lost and Founds series-come together in four life-changing stories.

In No Kings, a sex hookup with a parking lot stranger reveals more about Vin's life as a Lost King and his destiny than he could have dreamed. In King Fitch, Vin meets the last king in his long legacy, one final weekend before he withdraws from the world to an anonymous Latin American jungle. The Lost Ones recounts a terrifying kidnapping by street thugs from Vin's past. In King Malcolm the Restorer, Vin's mysterious relationship with his older brother-and the soul-crushing secret which drew them together-is finally revealed.

Through it all, Vin Vanbly struggles to survive. But what if he is destined for more than mere survival? Is he finally ready to embrace the truth and remember who he was always meant to be? Once there were a tribe where every man was the one true king and every woman the one true queen...

About the Author

EDMOND MANNING has always been fascinated by fiction: how ordinary words could be sculpted into heartfelt emotions, how heartfelt emotions could leave an imprint inside you stronger than the real world. Mr. Manning never felt worthy to seek publication until recently, when he accidentally stumbled into his own writer's voice that fit perfectly, like his favorite skull-print, fuzzy jammies. He finally realized that he didn't have to write like Charles Dickens or Armistead Maupin, two author heroes, and that perhaps his own fiction was juuuuuuust right, because it was his true voice, so he looked around the scrappy word kingdom that he created for himself and shouted, "I'M HOME!" He is now a writer.

In addition to fiction, Edmond enjoys writing nonfiction on his blog, When not writing, he can be found either picking raspberries in the back yard or eating panang curry in an overstuffed chair upstairs, reading comic books.

Vin’s story at last, with a rhythm all of it’s own. A book which has seriously ruffled my feathers. I got the answers I wanted plus a dose of strong emotions, love, anger, sadness, happiness. As always Manning’s brand of magic realism plays about with perspectives because in reality nothing changes for the lost kings except for how they decide to look at themselves and at their world and that my friends is a BIG thing because it changes the whole ballgame. As a reader I’m ready for surprises, I’m an open reader ready for anything. Well Manning tested me and turned the tables on his characters and on me in such ways as to leave me unbalanced, strangely unsettled. I’m trying to pinpoint why this is but I cannot really put my finger on it. Maybe it is the effect of how Manning played with his writerly tools and made me feel like an ‘unknowing’ character in his book rather than the all seeing voyeur the reader usually is. Again another lesson in perspective. Was it a journey well taken? For me certainly so. I might not love all the books in the same way, but all in all it’s been a great journey and I’m waiting for the end of King Daniel with anticipation.
