Fire and Sword

Fire and Sword Summary

“An epic tale…”—Library Journal

A broken nation in need of a savior.

Ravaged by plague, decimated by dark magic, infiltrated by a foreign evil seeking to dominate from within, Brynth is on the eve of its dissolution. When all the good men are dead and gone, who is to answer the call and defy what is wicked for what is right?

A Twisted Tale of Three Unlikely Heroes.

Heretic monk turned Sorcerer, Aldous Weaver. Infamous crusader turned fugitive, Kendrick the Cold. Aristocrat, rogue, monster hunter, and legend in his own mind, Theron Ward.
Three men condemned to die for their crimes find in each other both the will and the means to survive. A dark brotherhood with Sword and Sorcery is forged, and all monsters meek and mighty do fear the three.

“Gritty, fast-paced and compelling!”

Book Reviews


Amazing!5 star

I really enjoyed this read. Not only do I love the multiple perspective story at the beginning but how it comes together is amazing and truly beautiful! Highly recommended!!55


Thrilling5 star

This book had me in a constant state of suspense and adrenaline, each fight was more gruesome and more vivid than the last. It was so easy to come back and continue reading from wherever you left off because each chapter was so memorable. 1st book I read all year and now I need to continue the series.55


Great Fun5 star

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and will definitely keep reading the series! The stories are pure fantasy, the violence had me gasping more than once (in a good way), and the characters provide both humor and heart. Also loved the overall theme of redemption, camaraderie and the perils of organized religion. In short, for pure escape, this book has a little something for everyone. Enjoy!55

Dark, violent.....exciting5 star

This series will take you for a ride down the anti-hero highway. The three main characters, all from diverse backgrounds, are forced into paths they never chose. Each going through their own personal hell and emerging not how you’d quite expect. Plenty of intrigue, magic, monsters and violence. If you like fast-paced brutal action, unexpected twists and chaotic-neutral type heroes, this series is for you. On a side note, coming from a gamer’s perspective, this series would make an excellent open world/rpg epic game....just saying 🤘🏼55


An epic fantasy5 star

If you have played any total war war hammer this book feels very skaven! Loved it and I don’t love much!55


Waxing Philosophic2 star

I can understand and appreciate the attempt to balance a gore filled story with a bit of prose and theory about good and evil. However it was an attempt that failed as overbearing snippets from fictional historic characters from that world, poorly done flash backs, and forced conversations are shoved down my throat. Keep to the gore, leave the philosophy for another day.25
