The Bard's Blade is the start of the new Sorcerer's Song fantasy adventure series from Brian D. Anderson, bestselling author of The Godling Chronicles and Dragonvein.
Mariyah enjoys a simple life in Vylari, a land magically sealed off from the outside world, where fear and hatred are all but unknown. There she's a renowned wine maker and her betrothed, Lem, is a musician of rare talent. Their destiny has never been in question. Whatever life brings, they will face it together.
Then a stranger crosses the wards into Vylari for the first time in centuries, bringing a dark prophecy that forces Lem and Mariyah down separate paths. How far will they have to go to stop a rising darkness and save their home? And how much of themselves will they have to give up along the way?
For more than a decade, Brian D. Anderson tried breaking into the music business while holding down day jobs. To relieve stress, he would sit at his computer and write short stories. He had always loved writing, but had never considered it for a career. This changed when his son came to him, excited as only a seven-year-old can be, and told his father the idea he had for a story. This was the moment everything changed. What his son told him became the foundation for an entire career. And the beginning of The Godling Chronicles.
Since then, he has sold more than 500,000 books worldwide. His second series, Dragonvein, was a top five finalist on Audible for Fantasy Book of the Year in 2015.
Currently he resides in Fairhope, Alabama with his wife and son.
