A THREAT OF SHADOWS

J.A. Andrews

He betrayed everything to save his wife. 

He failed.

Alaric abandoned his role as a Keeper,
used his magic and knowledge in ways that defied everything good the Keepers stood for,
and still, the poison rages through her body.

His last chance to save her lies in an ancient Wellstone, a repository of power buried and lost long ago.

Luck—or something more troubling—leads him to a small group searching for the same stone. A disgruntled dwarf, a befuddled wizard, and an elf with an unsettling amount of power.

With their help, he might just find the cure before time runs out.

If he can survive the dragon, the traitor, and the terrible evil that’s awakening…

She wishes Jane Austen had lived 200 years later so they could be pen pals. She is furious at JK Rowling for introducing her to house elves, then not providing her a way to actually employ one. And she is constantly jealous of her future-self who, she is sure, has everything figured out.

A prison built by the gods to hold Melekath, the one all of them fear.

In the midst of the chaos, an enigmatic stranger appears. He claims to be immortal. He claims that only he can save the world. There is something sinister about him, and the weapons he offers are dangerous and perhaps uncontrollable, but with the apocalypse looming, what other choice does Wulf Rome have?

About the Author

Long ago, I grew up on a working cattle ranch in the Arizona desert. But if you’re thinking that sounds romantic…no. Just no. Replace those thoughts of 10-gallon hats and six-shooters with old, rusted trucks, sagging, barbed-wire fences, sway-backed horses and unending work. Which probably has a lot to do with why I became a writer. It involves a whole lot more sitting than ranching does, though most of the time the pay has been about the same. I’ve been writing novels for 30 years and some might even be worth reading.
