'a world of sword and sorcery both familiar and wonderfully distinct from those gone before, mixing pulpy adventure with moments of breathtaking majesty ... it's outstanding - and what's to come is shaping up to be something very, very special.'AurealisXpressSometimes the greatest enemy we face is ourselves - Book Two of The Broken Well Trilogy.
War is coming. War that will finally end the struggle between Kainordas and Fenvarrow, the lands of shadow and light. It is foretold that a blue-haired man will be the ultimate victor, and lead his people into a glorious new age of dominance.
The only problem - there are two of them.
Bel sets forth on a journey to find the Stone of Evenings Mild, his sole chance of reuniting with his darker half, Losara ... but the Stone has been hidden by an undead mage of mutable allegiance inside the lair of an insane dragon. Meanwhile, Losara grows dangerously curious about his other self, and devises a weapon so uncontrollable, it frightens even him.
How can two men fulfil a fate meant for only one? Will this infernal balance persist, or is there a way to bridge destiny's rift?
** Includes preview chapters of Book 3 in the Broken Well trilogy: SOUL'S RECKONING **
