RIDMARK ARBAN is the Gray Knight, outcast and exiled from the High King’s realm. Yet he alone sees the danger of the terrible Frostborn, the creatures that will sheathe the world in ice and quench all life.

But none of the lords of the realm believe his warnings.  

And his enemies want him dead…and the secret allies of the Frostborn wish to silence him forever. 

As old foes and new enemies close around him, Ridmark must fight for his life.

Or else the Frostborn will return, bringing eternal ice and darkness with them.

    Probably the best in the series so far. The introduction of Mara and Jager has lifted the mood, it has brought laughter and love..

      Thanks! Mara basically came out of nowhere. In my outline she was just “Jager’s girlfriend”, but at the last minute I decided to make her half dark elven, and a whole lot of things changed in the story.

    Fed up with this style of books read book after book and still don’t get to the end of the story what happened to a full story in one ,two or even three fine but this way it’s as if your paying by the chapter and then never get the last episode

      The full story, once it’s finished, will be about 1.5 million words or 3,500 pages in trade paperback or 67,500 Kindle locations. I’m afraid releasing it as a single volume would simply be infeasible.

      I am enjoying this series – I love having a book to look forward to with interesting characters. The drama is more a bonus than the whole point of the story to me.

    Excellent story! On a par with Tolkein and much better than “Thrones”. I am looking forward to what has to be a World shattering battle with the Frostborn!

    Mr. Moeller,
    it is pleasing to run into an author who at least makes an attempt to have his books accurately edited. regarding the book just before the master thief, I did not look particularly hard which is possibly why I found only eleven obvious errors in editing. believe me when I say that most indie author’s I have read are afflicted with a plethora of blatant mistakes. comparatively you are doing well. you are approximately on a par with Lindsay Buroker. an excellent place to be.
    in any case, thank you for creating an entertaining group of books. I am motivated to read all your books in light of those I have read so far.
    to address one readers complaint about your work never ending, I.e. ending each volume with a lack of resolution or worse, in the classic cliffhanger, I think that is an unfair criticism. by coincidence the author I referred to earlier is far more egregiously guilty of ending her books in cliffhanger mode than you. your books at least find an Abeyance of activity at which point the volume ends. it is, nonetheless, unfortunate that so many author’s choose to go on ad nauseam with series that do not reach ultimate resolution. a sad number in excess of eight to ten books. I do prefer the days when novels were related but complete in and of themselves, visit a visit the Hardy boys!

      Lindsay Buroker’s new SF series is pretty good – I’ve read the first three books.

      In regard to series, I try to at least have a complete plot in each book, even if the series continues. I’ve only deliberately done proper cliffhangers twice. I think the bald fact is that most readers prefer series. Every writer I’ve ever talked to says that they sell more series books than stand-alone books.

    As a d&d player in the 70’s I recognize a lot of your characters and situations. You have really made d&d adventures come alive with your story telling. You are truly a master dungeon master.

      Thanks! I wanted to write a series that recreated the feel of a good RPG campaign, where the characters go from dealing with trivial local concerns to arbitrating the fate of nations and empires.

    I purchased the omnibus one from Amazon (prequel and books 1-3) barely 4 days ago. And even though I’ve spent most of the time doing other things, I have finished them. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories and look forward to continuing to read the series. I do admit, I struggled a bit with the editing mistakes… It seems to be getting better as the series progresses and I’m sure a dozen books in it isn’t very bad now, but I almost stopped reading from tiring of the errors. I am the type to get quite submersed in a good book but the mistakes would often break the focus, so to speak. Im glad i stuck through it. I enjoy seeing that the author is apparently involved with the readers here and would like to say I’m looking forward to continuing reading the series! Also, if you’d like another set of eyes for proofreading I’d be more than happy to help! 😉
    It’s almost 3AM now but I’m off to purchase the next book. Haha who needs sleep! 😛

    I got the omnibus at discount. The story is good, Anne I shall continue reading it at full price now. However, the editing needs work. There were numerous places in all four books where the wrong correctly spelled word, or a missing word would jar me out of the story, and incite the critic in me. That is probably, the only negative takeaway at this point. A minor negative, is the rehashing of the same portions of the characters’ pasts, but that is tempered with the knowledge of the fact that both characters are dwelling on their past…

    The series is very good so far, (I’ve just finished the first 4 books) the only criticism I have is that you make mention of Ridmark’ s feelings of guilt about his dead wife in what feels like every other chapter, as I said though, this is the only downside I have found in what is otherwise a well devised, very well thought out story arc, with characters who, despite it being set in a fantasy world, are both believable and relatable. I would put what I have read so far very nearly on a par with the work of Robert Jordan and Pat Rothfuss. Well done Jonathon, I hope your literary career is long and fruitful, and I look forward to following your development as an author!

      Ridmark’s self-loathing is a major character arc for him, so naturally it gets addressed in the plot. 🙂

    Ah, just finished tearing through Frostborn Omnibus1. Thank you for hours of enjoyment & the pleasure of characters & scenarios that are easily visualized. 40 lashes for the proof readers. I’ll be spending my stolen moments of “me time” trying to catch up so I can start nagging you to write faster. 🙂
