Craving a complex, daring Sword and Sorcery / High Fantasy? The Age of Magic series is reminiscent of the emotional roller coaster and grit of Game of Thrones with the wonder and danger of the upside-down from Stranger Things!
Amidst the darkest days of antiquity, mankind discovers a new kind of hero.
For thousands of years, mankind warred without magic. Peculiar abilities were buried in history along with the storied paladins and the mysterious dark elves who rarely ventured into human towns.
That all changes at the end of the Tranquility Era, when a young man named Ashton accidentally raises his murdered best friend Clayton from the grave. Because of his mistake, Ashton becomes the focus of manhunts, armies, and the King's judgement, but Ashton is not the biggest problem in the Kingdom of Surdel.
The golden age of man is coming to a close and enemies surround the civilized world. Lulled into a false sense of security by isolation and pervasive peace, human lords hatch petty schemes to weaken their rivals and gain favor with the throne. Meanwhile, an ancient darkness stirs beneath the Great Northern Mountains and the orcish hordes grow restless just beyond the Southern Peaks. Out of the chaos at the end of the Tranquility Era, a new breed of hero arrives to forge an age of sorcery and mayhem. And into this chaos comes the Necromancer!
The Dark Paladin, Book 2, is being released on June 4, 2018. So, you don't have to wait long for the sequel! Book 3, The Dragon Prince, is expected in last quarter of 2018.

The People's Necromancer The Age of Magic, Book 1 By: Rex Jameson Narrated by: Adam Gold This book came at the necromancer a bit different. The opening scene has our hero at a grave site mourning his best friend. He is in such sorrow that he cries out to him in his grief to come back to him...well it scares the daylights out of him when he claws his way out and does just that! Now, this is a turn of events our hero did not expect! From here on the book really gets wild! He is still his friend! It is a death sentence to be a necromancer so they leave. There is a lot of action, adventure, and dead/undead too! I enjoyed this book! I like the different plot, unique characters, and world building. Narration was good too.
