Read the first three chapters of “Demonsouled.”

For fans of Robert E. Howard, David Gemmell, and Raymond E. Feist, here is a new story of sword and sorcery.

Banished for fifteen years, the wandering knight Mazael Cravenlock returns home at last to the Grim Marches, only to find war and chaos. His brother plans a foolish and doomed rebellion. His sister hopes to wed a brutal and cruel knight. The whispers speak of living corpses that stalk the night, of demons that lurk in darkness, and a sinister snake-cult that waits in the shadows.

Yet Mazael’s darkest enemy waits elsewhere.

Within his own tainted soul…

First published in 2005 from Gale/Five Star, now updated and revised in a new electronic edition.

    1. Thanks!

      I figure that everyone’s taste is different, and there’s no sense in trying to make someone like something that they don’t like.

  1. I am truly inspired and fascinated by this saga, even though it seem such a tired troupe it gets me in the “feels” in ways I never expected. Thank you, so much for writing this set of books and novellas. They have served as not only an inspiration for me but also for my D&D group. Again, thank you so much JM for creating such a unique universe in an ever crowded market. Your skill with a quill should not go unrewarded.

    1. Thanks! I’m glad you liked the books.

      I played a lot of D&D in my younger days. Too busy to have much time for it nowadays, alas. 🙂

  2. Enjoyed the first book and have purchased the second. Loved the characters. I would like to see a little more effort in the proof reading. Some of the errors distract the mind during otherwise great scenes.

    1. Thanks for the kind words about the book! I’m glad you liked it.

      I have had the worst luck with proofreaders, and am a bit leery about hiring anyone new at the moment.

      1. Proof reading errors I have caught and if interested would be happy to notate as I all of your books. I have read the tower of endless worlds series and the frostborn series so far. I enjoy your writing and can’t wait for new installments as I read your other works.

          1. Thanks for finding those! I usually keep a spreadsheet of typos for each book, and when I update the book I correct the typos.

  3. Love your books, thou I have only read the ghost series. I enjoy them all. On book 9 now. Thou I only got 3 of the paper back. Question.: how can I prioritise the short books of the ghost series. Or do I just read any which way. Thanks

    1. Thanks for the kind words about the books! I’m glad you liked them.

      Concerning the short stories of THE GHOSTS, they can be read in any order. However, if you want them to match up with the chronology of the books, they would go like this:

      1.) GHOST ARIA
      2.) GHOST DAGGER
      3.) GHOST CLAWS
      4.) GHOST OMENS
      5.) GHOST THORNS
      6.) GHOST UNDYING
      7.) GHOST SWORD

  4. When will Soul of Serpents be available in paperback edition? I am looking forward to a possible paperback release.

    1. Eventually. The problem is that I originally wrote SOUL OF SERPENTS in LibreOffice, and I’m having difficulty getting the text into the Word templates CreateSpace uses. So, there will be, once I figure out how to fix the formatting problem.

  5. i first read the frostborn series (looking forward to the next book btw!) And while waiting i started the demonsouled series, and im amazed at how well written this is too, both are truly addictive, (i don’t know if you have anything to do with it or if you can change it, but it annoyed me a great deal) before i finished the first book i started looking for the 2nd book in the series on play store, and since the books are not numbered i had trouble finding it, so i ended op reading a couple of lines of the description and instantly regrettet the spoiler i read. Please if it is possible for you to get them to number the books on the store it would help others avoid making the same mistake, i read the whole first book knowing things i should not. Other than that i’ll be looking forward to reading more of your work 🙂

    1. Thanks for the kind words about the books! I’m glad you liked them.

      I do need to edit that description. At the time, not many people were reading DEMONSOULED, so it didn’t matter. 🙂 I want to refresh the covers this year, so I should be able to fix it then.
