In war, men don't only fight the enemy...
Sergeant Knox leads the Head Knockers, scout-saboteurs in the war against the Dread Duke and his armies. They are the favorite squad of Captain Brighton's Stormwalkers, a proud company of citizen soldiers defending their homeland. Until Brighton falls in battle.
Now a new captain has new orders.
He's sending the Head Knockers to investigate a seemingly abandoned village. The streets and houses are empty and the air is eerily quiet. But something is there, waiting for them in the darkness.
And they'll need both steel and heart to defeat it.
Dark fantasy warfare and Lovecraftian horror conspire to corrupt you in this prequel to the dark fantasy, coming of age novel Tarnish.
Fans of Glen Cook's The Black Company and dark occult fantasy will love what the The Prince has in store...
About the Author
If taking a college fencing class, eating from the trash can, and smelling like an animal were qualifications for becoming a sword-swinging barbarian, J. D. Brink might be Conan’s protégé. But since that career path seemed less than promising, he has instead been a sailor, spy, nurse, and officer in the U.S. Navy, as well as a gravedigger, insurance adjuster, and school teacher in civilian life. Today (fall, 2014) he and his family live in Japan, where he's providing a bad example for all Americans. In his writing, as in life, Mr. Brink enjoys dabbling in multiple genres.
