Bellarius, saved from utter destruction, is now plunged into vicious civil war. Amra has vanished, and while Holgren has a plan to find her and bring her back, the plan teeters between impossibility and insanity.
But before he can even implement his plan, Holgren will have to deal with three separate armies vying for control of Bellaria, who view him as a threat, an inconvenience, or a potential tool. He'll have to trap and break to his will one of the monstrous rift-spawn, abominations born of the Telemarch's madness and power. And after that, he'll have to traverse several of the eleven hells in order to steal from the Black Library an ancient artifact of incredible power...
Michael McClung was born in San Antonio, Texas, but now putters around Southeast Asia. He has had the requisite number of odd jobs expected of a speculative fiction author, including soldier, book store manager, and bowling alley pin boy. His first book, the Sword & Sorcery novel "Thagoth," won the Del Rey Digital first novel competition in 2002 and was published by Random House in 2003.
The first four novels of his self-published Sword & Sorcery series "The Amra Thetys Chronicles" will be re-released by Ragnarok Publications in 2015.
In his spare time, Michael enjoys kickball, brooding and picking scabs.
