The Dark Age. The Earth has turned on humanity with earthquakes, volcanic eruptions and a new plague that kills the Roman Emperor himself. Barbarian invasions shatter civilizations.
In this chaos, Javor comes of age in a poor, remote village. Try as he might, though, he never fits in with his own people. There is just something about him that keeps him apart from the others.
When barbarian raiders kidnap the girl he loves, he takes a mysterious dagger handed down from his great-grandfather and tries to rescue her. But that's just the beginning of new horrors that murder Javor's parents and devastate the village.
Bent of revenge, Javor does not realize that his quest is taking him directly into the war of the earth against humanity. The young man, shunned by his own people, holds the key to humankind's survival.

This was a waste of .99. Only got 4 more pages to the previous book
Really enjoyed the free peek provided by the author, really want to read the rest of the book, but confused as to were it is. all I can find is 2 versions of the same title. one is free, and 1 is $0.99 Have no idea which one, or were it is.
Reading THE BONES OF THE EARTH: INITIATION RITES led me to the full book, THE BONES OF THE EARTH. Javor, slayer of dragons, continues on his travels eliminating evil along the way. I shared his journies and loved the trip we took. Only a good author can make the reader and the protagonist connect with one another. Javor and I connected well. Thank you, Mr. Bury.
