The Romalus name, synonymous with royalty, has outlasted memory and written record on the continent of Lisrrania. Kings and the sons of kings have always ruled the city and outlying hamlets fairly and consistently from the throne at Calantha, the nation’s capital and center of civilization. Romalus: A name and family of such strength and duration that no power, whether from man or magic, might break the bindings that has held for centuries. But as certainly as peace lives in the hearts of the citizenry, a hideous creature of royal birth resides in the fetid chambers of Calantha Castle. The half animal, half man has a name, Warton Romalus, first born to King Cedric, heir to the throne, and the product of revenge inherent in an ageless sorceress. With sin and shame as his catalyst, Cedric abandons Warton upon the icy slopes of Skell Mountain, to live or die by strength and chance in a wilderness far removed from Cedric’s guilt. Befriended by a woodcutter, Crestin Aleyn, Warton begins his battle against royal corruption and the unnumbered Internals, a race of underground creatures led by Eulad Stonner, a man with sufficient vileness and treachery that he has the strength to take the kingdom for himself.

 

Here is a classic yet fresh approach to medieval fantasy. Herein are characters bearing sin and piety, hope and loss, shame and pride, romance and hatred, facing dangers and emotions that move them steadily toward their end, be it death or eventual happiness.     

 


Excerpt

As a sound, Basima's lacerated heart, wicked though it was, bled into houses, barns and bedchambers. Indeed, the very ground was insufficiently frozen to escape saturation. And as the city and castle received it, Basima's death knell faded almost to silence, but then rose again in a different pitch. Anger now stormed in full fury upon the castle walls.
