Shadows in the Dust [The Restless Bk 1] by Will Molinar
The infamous fallen general of a shattered kingdom, Marcus Ravenholt now rules in a dire land of despair and decadence. Dreaded wolves, skeletal warriors, powerful fallen heroes of a bygone age and other fell creatures of legend and undeath are his to command in a mockery of his past life. Now a new force with a dark secret has arisen to threaten him, drawing their recruits from the common people of the land to do battle with the vampire's inexhaustible legions. But are the men and the power behind them a force for good in this evil world or are they simply causing more trouble by inciting the wrath of the greatest warrior the kingdom has ever known? Find out in this brutal slug fest of living versus undead, of holy might versus unhallowed power in a land where the dead walk....
