Lucan Mandragon is the Dragon’s Shadow, the most powerful wizard of the Grim Marches. His brother hates him, his father regards him as a weapon, and the nobles distrust him…but they all fear his magic.

And when Lucan’s lost love Tymaen falls ill, stricken by a deadly poison, there is no one else who can save her.

But to save Tymaen, Lucan will have to plumb the secrets of a master necromancer…and face a trap that even his power cannot overcome.

    I’m not sure how I missed “The Sworn Knight” and the prequels that it contains but when I went to Amazon to buy “Warlord” there it was.

    I truly enjoyed revisiting Mazael and learning more of his backstory and getting more information on Gerald. I remembered the events of “The Wandering Knight” but the rest were new to me.

    “The Dragon’s Shadow” was a great look into Lucan’s pre-Demonsouled life, was well told and was a great read.

    It has been a long time since I read any of the Demonsouled novels, but I don’t recall Montigard or Atalia being in them. Am I forgetting them or were they just for these prequels?

    Thank you again,

      Thanks! I’m glad you liked the stories.

      Montigard is Hugh Chalsain’s sidekick in SOUL OF SKULLS and SOUL OF SWORDS. Atalia doesn’t turn up again. I would like her to do so, though – it would be fun to write a scene where Romaria meets one of Mazael’s (many) former girlfriends.
