The Hero of Ellunon, Kyen is a talented swordsman with a heavy reputation on his shoulders. Shy and destitute, all he wants is to wander the wilderness the rest of his days—and to hide a powerful secret.

Until word arrives that his best friend, Finn, the Crown Prince, has been possessed by a sorcerer known as the Kingmaster. The royal family calls on Kyen to save him, but steel is useless against his dark and sentient magic.

Adeya is a princess doomed to an arranged marriage. Once celestial beings wielded the Three Powers at the command of her people. Now, they’ve fallen silent, and, with fiends running amok and her kingdom on the brink of ruin, she must marry… or find an arcangel who still answers.

Together they embark on a quest, following the rumors of a last summoner hiding his arcangel in an ancient forest. Fiends, dragons, and thieves can’t compare to the Kingmaster as his black sorcery turns every friend they meet into an enemy. When his designs ensnare Adeya, Kyen must choose between saving his friends or releasing a secret that will endanger all the kingdoms of Ellunon.

About the Series

Kyen of Avanna has the reputation of a hero, the lineage of a warrior kingdom, and an unmatched skill with the sword; but nobody believes it when they meet with the desperately shy, awkward young man. So Kyen keeps to himself by wandering the wilderness, trying to outrun his tragic past—and trying to hide a powerful secret.
But celestial warfare is waging across the realm and the more Kyen attempts to disappear, the deeper he’s drawn into the heart of the conflict, caught between fiends and arcangels; between princesses and villains; between the man he is and the man he could become. With the destruction of Ellunon riding on the edge of his blade, his choice to face his true identity and wield the power given to him will determine the fate of all.
With a vibrant cast of characters, wicked-fast sword fights, and world-shattering magic, this is one epic fantasy book series where you’ll need to buckle up before reading.
