M.R. Mathias is proud to reveal the cover design for The Wizard and the Warlord – The Wardstone Trilogy Book Three. Book One - The Sword and the Dragon, has been in the Amazon Kindle Fantasy/Mythology charts for over 18 months and counting, and Book Two - Kings, Queens, Heroes, & Fools, has been in those same charts since its release in July 2011. The Wizard and the Warlord will bring Gerard and Hyden’s story to a climactic conclusion. This final installment of the trilogy is scheduled for paperback release in July 2012. The eBook version should be available a little sooner.
Sandara of DeviantArt.com rendered the image of the baby red dragon sitting in its mother’s lap, while Gary V. Tenuta of BookCoversAndVideos.webs.com turned the work into the wonderful cover you see here.
If you are familiar with the story then you will know who the young hatchling in the image is. If not, maybe you should pick up The Sword and the Dragon and find out for yourself.
Accolades for The Wardstone Trilogy:
5 stars - By Dr. Jamal
I have read many a dragon novel in my time. But none compare to Mathias' The Sword and the Dragon. The personal character development and attention to detail are so rich, that you are literally sucked into this novel. This massive work of a masterpiece will be glued to your hands and mind. One of the greatest novels I have read in a long time. A must read for any and all interested in the lives and times of dragons.
5 stars - Great Read
I enjoyed this one so much that I purchased the author's 'Dragoneer' series. I honestly don't know which I enjoyed more. I am eagerly awaiting the next one.
5 stars - Loved it!
This book is intense. It has suspense, romance, heartache, action, and magic. It's an incredible story that will keep you on your toes. :) I can't wait for the next one!

The next epic adventure of our time! If you like The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy you are gonna flip for this! M.R. Mathias's storytelling prowess is on full display here taking you on an adventure into a land you will not soon forget or want to leave. I am chomping at the bit for part two!
