Have you ever been in a situation where no choice was a winner? No matter what you did, the outcome would be bad. That’s the situation my protagonist, Linvin Grithinshield finds himself facing in my latest book, “Mandrean Revenge.” The closest person to him in the world is his Uncle Anvar but he has been kidnapped by the evil Emperor Mandrean and his Necromancer. Linvin is given an ultimatum. He must either surrender to Mandrean for execution before the first frost or Anvar will be killed. Linvin knows they will kill Anvar anyway but he feels he cannot abandon his uncle. He must try to save Anvar. All the advice he is given is to stay home and not fall for the trap. Linvin knows Mandrean will hold Anvar as leverage to make Linvin surrender without a fight. Filled with no hope of victory, he sets off for the Mandrean Empire and his date with destiny. The funny thing about destiny is it never happens just as you plan. Linvin runs into all sorts of adventures along the way and his path changes. The story is full of excitement, intrigue, betrayal and of course, action. This is the third installment of the “Sapphire Chronicles”. In the first two, “Quest for the Red Sapphire” and “The Sapphire Crucible” Linvin, Anvar and the twin cousins Bander and Rander first meet up with the Mandreans when they are looking for the Red Sapphire. There is plenty of action to be had and lessons to be learned as Linvin becomes worthy of the gem and its power. Now it seems in the third book, Linvin is paying for any successes he had earlier. So the question remains, what would you do if you were him?
Fantasy fiction is my passion. This series embodies my love for a good story and action. You will find it to be many things, but not boring! Read what you love and love what you read...
