Ivan Kimble would do anything to have his older brother return home with him—does that mean sacrificing his own life and his friends?

New Release

Book Three
The King's Scepter

   Ivan returns to the mystical West Forest for two reasons. He promised to testify during Merridyn's trial, though he doubts himself and his ability--until the Truth Chair is brought forth. The other reason is to answer his older brother's desperate plea to travel to the Mountain of Smoke and fire to save him.

From what? Ivan knows the mountain is a most-awful place. A monster dwells there, protected by the flesh-eating ghouls.

  Ivan's life hangs in the balance when he is attacked by the ghoul's vicious leader. Though his recovery is long and painful, he is cared for by his beloved brother and new girlfriend. Their relationship looks promising.
