Brydon’s quest was simple. Borrow the fabled Gauntlet of Ven-Kerrick, bring it home to prove his worth, marry the princess, and ascend the throne. He had planned for the dangerous terrain and Redolian assassins, but he did not expect the Gauntlet to be missing, nor to find the Kerrick royal family murdered. Luckily, his worst enemy was there to help him out.
“Very compelling, the first installment of this series is an action packed and startling view of a new world on the brink of invasion. The main characters begin as disparate enemies and come to form a relationship as strong as the enmity under which they met. I am looking forward to the second work, and hope it contains the same intensity and imagination as the first.
Congratulations Ladies on the beginnings of a wonderful and enlightening series.”

“This book is so well written it’s hard to understand why it’s free. It has everything a good fantasy story needs - a knight on a quest, unlikely companions, and unforeseen trouble when they finally reach their goal. I’m looking forward to the sequel!”
“What sets this book apart from the many fantasy books I’ve read over the years is the natural-ness and believability of the characters. While many typical fantasy characters find themselves “swept along”, you get the sense that the authors have given great thought to the choices each character would make rather than slavishly following a plot.
This is a cracking read and I would pay good money to have it in hardcopy.”
