Shade Like You’ve Never Seen Him Before…

01 Jun

It’s been a while! I apologize for my lengthy absence on the blog. I’ve been hard at work on Shade III: The Weeping Grounds, which is entering into it’s third round of proofing to take us to the final draft. I am EXTREMELY excited about this book since it takes Shade out of his element leaving him broken and beaten. The full broken humanity of Shade’s character is in many ways put on trial in this book and this is Shade like you have never seen him before! More on that in a few minutes…

I’m afraid I’ve done also done a terrible job promoting the release of our latest book: The Last Field of Honor, Book One of the Elf Wars Trilogy. The Last Field of Honor has been out on the market since early this year and is doing fairly well. It seems a lot of folks have been impatient for Shade III, so that’s where I’ve been pouring most of my time. That and the birth and early life of the beautiful new addition to our family. Don’t get me wrong. The Elf Wars Trilogy is a great set of books and will introduce many mega-important characters to the Triloriad™ itself, but it seems many of my readers have grown more attached to Shade himself, at least for now. You can find the purchase links for The Last Field of Honor available in all major formats here.

Now about Shade III: The Weeping Grounds!

Shade allows himself to be captured by his next targets, the Slavelords of the Black Ring. He is stripped down, flogged and shackled with the lines of other caught night mortal slaves loaded onto a slave ship and shipped across the Sea of Mourning. He is forced to suffer countless horrors and abuses on his long perilous journey to his true targets. He is forced to bide his time, playing possum, swallowing his anger and desire to strike back, while the ship takes him ever closer to his true targets…the Slavelords of the Black Ring…

Shade has carefully laid his plans, prepared for every possible contingent in his plot to take out the Slavelords of the Black Ring. And yet not even he can fathom the vast sea of horrors that await him… For powers lurk in the elder planes, ancient powers long forgotten by the fragile mortal constructs of this world. His nights are haunted by dreams and torments. His days are haunted by heralds and visions. The very seas cry out for his blood. The very clouds weep for Shade’s soul. Shade is in for his most harrowing adventure yet…

Bloodthirsty sea monsters lurk in the great depths. Winged shadows swoop down from the mountains looking to settle old scores. And the greatest evil lies buried in the deep bowels of this world, locked away, forgotten until Shade finally encounters a foe that not even his capable hand can slay. Shade finds himself reduced to but a small mortal worm, wriggling in between the wars of gods and Elder Dragons. Shade III is like no Shade book before it…
