The Rise of the Western Kingdom

BOOK 2 OF THE SWORD OF THE WATCH SERIES

A slave (Galbard) is offered freedom in exchange for murdering and robbing a hapless vagabond. His decision could alter the balance of power between the Watchers and Spellmakers, resulting in the first real possibility for mankind to separate their destiny from the immortals...

...or sealing their fate forever.

Come again into the rich world of Erathe, where the fleeing refugees of the City of Rion fight to survive a timeless war between wizards and demigods, and one man must rally his people to stand against the forces of evil.

“Galbard's decision could alter the balance of power between the Watchers and the Spellmakers...”
