The Chronicles of Adalmearc Book 1
The King is dead. His heir too young to rule. Who will claim the crown?
The noble houses gather to choose a new Lord Protector, sparking old rivalries. If they can’t agree, civil war looms. That is if foreign kingdoms don’t smell blood in the water and invade first.
Lord Vale wants to take up the mantle, spurred by his ambitious brother Konstans.
Lord Isarn likewise seeks this power. He is aided – or thwarted – by the return of his brother, the knight and war hero Athelstan, whose squire, Brand, hopes to restore his family’s fortunes no matter the cost.
Through all of this, an enigmatic traveler makes plans with jarls, scribes, and priests for his own mysterious purpose.
Only one thing is for certain. War is inevitable.
