THE CHAIN OF EYES - The Tainted Cabal book 2

On the spur of the moment I decided to set up a pre-order for THE CHAIN OF EYES, The Tainted Cabal book 2 — sequel to Revenant Winds!

With everything going on over the last few years progress on this novel stalled (I unexpectedly had to deliver seven books… yes seven, when 47North and Audible jumped at both The Infernal Guardian and The Necromancer’s Key series). But with five of those books complete and the sixth almost done, I now have time to work on other projects!

The first draft of THE CHAIN OF EYES is at around 25%, and I figure having a pre-order up will be great motivation to finish it quickly and get it ready for release. I set the release date for December this year, but I can always bring it forward once the manuscript is in a publishable state.

Anyhow, I just thought I’d let everyone know!

The cover is a temporary one, and the blurb isn’t finalised, but it’s better than having nothing out there and no word on when the sequel to Revenant Winds will be ready.

Here’s the Amazon US link: The Chain of Eyes

And the novel should show up on Goodreads soon.

A Crucible of Souls included in's top 100 fantasy books of our century!

I am somewhat stunned… has released their top 100 fantasy books of this century and my very own A CRUCIBLE OF SOULS was included! The crew over at are very active in the fantasy community, including being judges in and administrating Mark Lawrence’s SPFBO every year, so it’s a huge honour to be included in their list.

But is the only way from here down?! Read the books I wrote after A CRUCIBLE OF SOULS to find out ;)

There are many great authors and book included in the list, so check it out here: FANTASY LIST: TOP 100 FANTASY BOOKS OF OUR CENTURY

INCURSION, The Necromancer's Key book 1 -- released!

INCURSION is finally out in the world!

This is my eighth novel and the first in a new series: The Necromancer’s Key. The series is set in the same world as REVENANT WINDS, SHADOW OF THE EXILE AND DAWN OF THE EXILE. I think the book turned out well, but I am biased…!

You can pick up a copy here at Amazon or if you prefer audiobooks at Audible.
And the print book is here: Amazon


A corrupted power stirs from beyond the grave.
A sacred order of knights sworn to protect the world from evil.
The Necromancer Queen will rise again.

Seventeen years have passed since the Necromancer Queen Talia was overthrown and slain, and her capital city destroyed by the Knights of the Order of Eternal Vigilance.

Anskar DeVantte, raised in the sacred disciplines of the Order, is now ready to face the brutal initiation trials to become a consecrated knight-sorcerer.

But the further Anskar rises in the ranks the more his faith wavers, and he is beset by harrowing dreams and uncertainty. As troubling powers awaken within him, a schism grows between Anskar and his hallowed Order, and he draws the hungry gaze of the vanquished queen’s fanatical followers.

As Anskar pieces together the mysteries of his early life, and begins to understand the malevolent forces gathering in his path, he finds himself with a crucial choice to make:

Remain loyal to the Order’s righteous mission, or control the dark powers growing within him.

Either way, his destiny is steeped in war. The only question is, which side will he be on?
