about

Young Adult medieval/fantasy adventure. Vengeance is a sharp sword that pierces many hearts. In the hand of Lord Brant it is dangerous. Tyranny is a blunt sword that bludgeons many backs. King Durwin wields it ruthlessly. Justice holds the key to peace in Khryterdon. But the meaning of justice is determined by the victor.

Lord Brant is discontented with life at the royal palace. Mostly because assassins are trying to kill him. He escapes with Lady Adalia, King Durwin’s vain and opinionated ward, who herself seeks to avoid an arranged marriage. Hunted by the King's agents, they flee through the wilderness, a trek that ends far afield from their original plan. In the smithy and scullery of a country manor a new life awaits them. But is it a welcome life? New adversaries delight in provoking Brant's weakness: his temper. Being known as Thorpe the blacksmith's apprentice does not free Brant from his past: he is still heir to half the kingdom, and he knows there is mortal peril in revealing this secret. As civil war rends the kingdom, led by Lord Thomas and a commoner known only as "Black Benny" - united to overthrow ruthless King Durwin - Brant has to sort out if he is fighting for Khryterdon as blacksmith or nobleman, and what may be lost with victory.

Book 2 of The Khryterdon Saga continues with the Adventure of rebellion, friendship, and the courage to forgive, where Lord Brant’s skill in forging a battle sword mirrors his own path toward becoming a man of compassion.
