Grok had been a scout in the Border Wars for nearly twenty years. Twenty years of selling his bow and sending winged death to countless foes. But even orcs get old. Even orcs get tired of the killing. And a sheriff’s position in a sleepy country town seemed like just the thing to keep a roof over his head without any more battles.
But sleepy country towns have their share of troubles and when one reminds Grok of a disaster he’d seen before, he knows he’s outclassed. Outclassed but that has never made him back down before. He must gather to him whomever he can trust; his deputy Lizt and his horse Urgh and give everything he has left to defeat this new evil. Or die trying.

About the Author
Byron Gordon grew up in the rural Eastern Shore of Maryland, USA. One of six children, he soon discovered his love of reading, ranging from the clever humor of P.G. Wodehouse to the epic fantasy of Tolkien to the fast paced science fiction of Timothy Zahn. Fed on this widely varied diet, his imagination blossomed and he began to write, desiring to create worlds and adventures of his own. After realizing the bleak financial prospects of an aspiring writer trying to break into the fiction realm, Byron enlisted in the United States Coast Guard. He spent an extra week in Coast Guard Boot Camp (Cape May, NJ) for writing during the breaks between classes. After Boot Camp he traveled to California for training in radio communications. Following the completion of his training, he spent three years on a Coast Guard Cutter, interdicting and repatriating illegal migrants. He currently is still on active duty and plans search and rescue efforts on the east coast of the USA. Despite the intense, and often hectic, schedule that military life entails, Byron has continued to write in his free time. While writing a complete novel still proves elusive, he has composed multiple short stories and a small amount of poetry. In the spring of 2011, he started publishing his writings electronically and now has a fair number of short stories and poetry available online in a variety of formats.
