The second book in the Forging of a Knight series! Qualtan has become a knight at last. With Glaive, the half-orcne thief by his side, he will join a host of new friends: Jesepha, the strong-willed female knight; her mentor, the elder knight Bartholomew, who carries a strange secret; the young and hot-headed knight Euric; the glum and impatient knight Richard; and the dashing merchant lord Visandus. A seemingly routine mission will unravel into one of greater horror, involving inter-dimensional creatures, rival sea-faring pirate nations, and a face-to-face confrontation between Qualtan and Darksiege, one of Those That Stand in Shadow, at last! Should they somehow prevail, it will just be a precursor to an even Greater threat!

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’m an avid fan of fiction – specifically myths and fantasy – from Tolkien, to R.E. Howard, to Fritz Leiber, and to HP Lovecraft – heck, even Frank Baum and CS Lewis! When I was young, I was exposed to The Hobbit, books on King Arthur, Greek mythology, went to a couple of Medieval Fairs and never looked back.
Reading got me into writing. I started tinkering with writing my own stories, and gradually, developed what would eventually become the Forging of a Knight series. The first book in the series received a lot of positive response, and the tale was just beginning, so I followed up with Forging of a Knight, Rise of the Slavekeepers. The third book in the series, Forging of a Knight, Prison Planet of the Mah-Lahkt is slated for August 2014.
