In The Grim Company, Luke Scull introduced a formidable and forbidding band of anti-heroes battling against ruthless Magelords and monstrous terrors. The adventure continues as the company—now broken—face new dangers on personal quests… As Davarus Cole and his former companions were quick to discover, the White Lady’s victorious liberation of Dorminia has not resulted in the freedom they once imagined. Anyone perceived as a threat has been seized and imprisoned—or exiled to darker regions—leaving the White Lady’s rule unchallenged and absolute. But the White Lady would be wiser not to spurn her former supporters: Eremul the Halfmage has learned of a race of immortals known as the Fade, and if he cannot convince the White Lady of their existence, all of humanity will be in danger. Far to the north, Brodar Kayne and Jerek the Wolf continue their odyssey to the High Fangs only to find themselves caught in a war between a demon horde and their enemy of old, the Shaman. And in the wondrous city of Thelassa, Sasha must overcome demons of her own. Because the Fade are coming… From the Hardcover edition.
With the magnificent Canadian frontier and the formation of the North-West Mounted Police as the backdrop, the GUARDIANS OF THE NORTH series from Alan Morris has found wide appeal among both men and women readers. Following in his family's excellent writing tradition, Alan has joined Gilbert and Lynn with this strong historical fiction series of his own. In Bright Sword of Justice, the trail of a violent gang leads Hunter Stone and the Mounties to the Blackfood village where Reena O'Donnell works as a missionary. There they find a mysterious person who claims to know where the killers are. Hunter also discovers that a new missionary has arrived in the Territory who is obviously captivated by the beautiful Reena. When the Mounties clash with the gang and capture three of the men, to Reena's horror one of the outlaws turns out to be her younger brother, Liam. Although he is truly a victim of circumstances, the evidence against him is strong, and no amount of pleading from Reena can change Hunter's commitment to carrying out justice. Will truth prevail for her brother? And to which man will Reena's affections lead?
Onea was once a world of peace then the first of the swords was made. The first was made for a great leader who led all the people, the other forged later to defeat the tyrant the first leader became. Generations passed and the swords of Mar were thought of as myth, a myth that followed the last of the great leaders, Mar, into history. Stories died and stories followed, but many believed that the blades had a destiny of their own and it was said they would return. Mar would return with his swords and would unite Onea once more, but who would be Mar? Others would choose to be Mar, with the swords they could control all of Onea, but none would believe the swords would fall to a young one who has yet to reach the age of the sword. Why would the swords choose youth? Why Arilius?
